They will talk to each other via text on an app but would not be allowed to meet in person, they would be allowed to shape their personality, and they can pretend to be someone else even from the opposite gender, in simple words, cat-fishing.

Each contestant has to rate the person they are playing with from first to last place. Those with higher ratings will become an influencer and those with lower ratings will have to pack their bags and leave and will be blocked. The cycle will continue till the end. The winner will bag a fat amount.

[laughs] I might do a little splurge here and there. I might get me a little vacation, a little bag, but really just trying to save and invest. I want to make this money work for me for the rest of my life, because I may not win $150,000 ever again,” he said.
