Sebastian van Barneveld, Talpa’s Director of International Distribution: “It's wonderful to see this format maintain its established status as a proven product in both of these very important markets. In addition to that, our local HUB location makes it easy to produce top-notch valuable content and adapt Talpa’s exceptional non-scripted formats, such as Marble Mania, for audiences worldwide”.
In "Marble Mania", three celebrities take each other on. And this time, they get to play in front of a live studio audience. Each celebrity plays with their own color marbles. Each round starts with a skill assignment, where they can influence each other's success and where the three celebrities need to prove their skills. The better they play, the more marbles they get at the start of the second game of the round: the game of luck.
