If you’ve missed seeing supermodel/mogul Tyra Banks on television, don’t worry, Tyra is returning back to reality T.V., along with superstar skater Rob Dyrdek, for what they call a combination of ‘Shark Tank’ and ‘The Voice.’ This new show is called Funded and the contestants will be competing for a $1 million investment in their businesses. The contestants will have the guidance of Tyra, Rob, or entrepreneur Rohan Oza to win the money!
Each episode will feature contestants teaming up with one of the three mentors, and at the end, investors will choose which company or brand they want to invest $1 million dollars in! “I have spent my life encouraging people to BYOB,” Tyra said. “— Be Your Own Boss. Making everyday people’s dreams come true is what I live for. ‘Funded’ is the life-changing type of television power project that gets me pumped. We will enlighten and entertain audiences big time, and encourage our viewers to attack their most outrageous goals with fierce determination.”
Funded will air on NBC, however, there has not been a set premiere date for the show as of yet.
