Are you Faithful – or a Traitor?

The traitors - now casting!

Are you good at strategy and problem solving – and do you have a suspicious mind?

The makers of Gogglebox, Race Across the World and The Circle are hoping Mensa members will have all the qualities needed for an exciting new BBC One reality competition called The Traitors.

Studio Lambert are recruiting now for the show, which is a competition series built on strategy and suspicion which will be filmed in the Scottish Highlands.

A team of players will compete in a series of missions – the more missions they win, the bigger the prize pot. However, in their way will be “the Traitors”, who will meet in secret to decide which of their fellow players – known as the Faithfuls – to eliminate.

If a Traitor makes it to the end, they are in with a chance of taking home the cash prize. Whilst trying to avoid being eliminated, the Faithfuls must figure out who is a Traitor and vote them out so they can take the prize money for themselves. Throughout the series, there will be twists, turns and surprises for the players.

The producers are looking for people from all backgrounds to take part, especially those who are good at strategy and have a highly intelligent way of thinking and problem solving.

If you, or someone you know, has an unbeatable poker face, is an expert when it comes to spotting a liar, or simply someone who loves to compete, then we’d love to hear from you.
