‘Roadies X1’ is the 11th season of the much loved reality show. With billions of fans and tremendous support, the show has garnered huge TRP ratings and fame all over the years. With a successive string of last 10 super successful seasons, the show revamped its format in its 11th season, to make it look better, bigger and of course, more loved and entertaining.

The show’s latest season began on 25th January to showcase a string of auditions, which happened all across the nation. Now with the successful completion of the auditions and final selections done, the show is all set to start off with the real ‘action’. If you are wondering who all made it to the big thing, then here is the list.

Roadies X1

From Delhi, which has been a Roadie talent pool house every year, the show selected these candidates. Taru, Charu, Rashika, Garima, Nick, Montek and Ajay were selected from the Delhi auditions. With a total of 7 selections, the judges, Raghu, Rajiv and Ranvijay had a good time interviewing each of them.

While Taru’s started her audition with a negative outlook towards elders and many things, the interview turned positively towards a fair end.

Charu, a government teacher and politician will be fun to see, especially when she has staunch ‘no flirting’ and ‘no cheating’ issues.

Ajay too had interesting politician streak, while Montek, a wrestler is believed to fight it out equally. The rest of the Delhi selections seemed to be in the league of an interesting crowd.

From Chandigarh and Mumbai auditions, three contestants each were selected, while Pune gave just one to the judges, making it to a total of 14 finalists.

From Mumbai, Rishi, Siddharth and Nikhat were selected, while from Chandigarh, Utkarsh, Meher and Anjali impressed the judges. Anjali comes across to have that wild streak of physically fighting it out, while Meher touched the judges’ hearts’ with her emotional and vulnerable side. Utkarsh too impressed the Raghu and Ranvijay with his physical fitness and ability to amaze them with interesting stuff.

With a clear cut goal and focus on life, Rishi came across as warm and real to the judges in the Mumbai auditions, while Siddharth and Nikhat were signed on for their sheer temper tantrums, back biting ability, which is all likely to add some flavor and some hot fights on the show.

Amongst all the contestants, the most unconventional would be the Pune finalist, Rajkumar, who looked as weird to the audience as to the judges. With a black ‘tika’ on his forehead and talks on positive spiritual changes in his life, he, the self proclaimed ‘gyaan guru’ did come across as someone quite interesting to watch out on the show.

With an interesting breed of contestants this time and with an equally interesting concept and format of the show, Roadies 11th season is all likely to make it big with the masses. In a sea of such myriad talents and different personalities, it will be fun to see who will fight for respect and who will fight for the title.

Stay tuned to catch all the fun, action and double dose of politics, back bitching and loads of adventure on the new, revamped version of the country’s most loved reality show, the Roadies X1, every Saturday, at 7 p.m. only on channel MTV.

MTV Hero Roadies X1 is Back!!


[To set reminder and check TV schedule of Roadies X1 click here.....]

With ten years of legendary fist fights, bad mouthing, expletives showering galore and Raghu’s demonic avatar raging temper, MTV Roadies, the most awaited and loved adventure reality show, is once again coming back with a bang! However, this time, the 11th season, as numerically shown as X1 will don a new, a never seen avatar!


The popular youth oriented show has decided to undergo a fresh new change in plot, including the season title, which is all slated as X1 rather than the numerical emblem for the 11th season. Other than that, the show has decided to forgo its old concept of vote-outs and unparliamentary language, which had garnered the show hype and not to mention, lots of high TRP’s in the past seasons.

This time the show will give weight age to performance more than politics and lingo. Yes, this time it’s all about respect! This statement was further confirmed by the show hosts Ranvijay and RaghuRam, who were heard quoting the statement, while they were taking auditions in the city of Chandigarh. They said this time they would like to play it safe and would avoid usage of bad words, including beep words aka expletives on the show.

‘Politics or aggressive language is simply taken out of the equation!’ said Raghu. He also pointed out a very firm reason for bringing about the change in plot. He said that he has recently penned an autobiographical book of his, which talks primarily about his ten long years of journey with Roadies, along with some personal moments from his childhood days. Considering the foundation of Roadies, the tactics, the concept, he fears many fans would be using the book as a guide and therefore a need to change the plot.

This time things aren’t much different for Raghu. Although, he says that the past years of experience have given him a sense of calmness and have made him cool and composed, yet he feels a strong sense to voice out his opinions and talk strongly about subjects like ‘sexism’, ‘rape’, honor killings’, ‘discrimination’, ‘corruption’ etc.

Well, so far so good. The auditions for the reality show began last year in November, picking contestants in cities like Chandigarh, Delhi, Pune and Ahmedabad. After this four-city auditions, the cast and crew have said that this time the show will witness seven girls competing against seven boys, in a fight for equality and not to mention, the famed title.

Each round will witness a winner based solely on performance. ‘Ride for respect’ is what will be the driving factor behind Roadies season 11 this time.

Stay tuned to watch as the new reality show unfolds, reveling new concept, new contestants and a lot of new interesting things, including a new revamped host in Ranvijay! The show is starting on MTV from 25th January onward at 7pm!

Team Roadies Elaborates about the season 10

Raghu Ram, the producer of MTV Hero Roadies says,

“This year, Roadies completes a decade as the definitive reality show for the youth of India. And in its 10th year, Roadies enters the new era, where the new struggles with the old for its true place. Is it time for a new generation of Roadies? This question will be answered as Rannvijay, the mainstay of Roadies, takes on the old establishment and its way of getting things done. This season is all about the winds of change, as the new challenges the old in a battle for glory.”

VJ Rannvijay explains,

Raghu and I have always been on the same team. This is the first time that we will be competing against each other due to conflict of opinion. The decade season of MTV Roadies will be packed with excitement and thrill, like all other seasons. I am sure the fans of the show will enjoy and look forward to the season.”

Mr. Aditya Swamy, EVP and Business HeadMTV India explains,

“This year we celebrate the decade of a cult called Roadies and of our 10 year partnership with Hero. We call this season Roadies X and this signifies a start of a new era in the journey of Roadies. As the new takes on the old, we put to test a very basic question of life. What does it take to win? Politics or Performance. Hai Dum Ladne Ka?”

Mr. Anil Dua, Sr. Vice President (Marketing & Sales) – Hero MotoCorp. said,

Hero MotoCorp today is one of the largest corporate promoters of talent in the country on diverse platforms. We have been associated with MTV Hero Roadies since its inception and this season is a celebration of that decade-long association. To bring more attitude, fun and excitement among the contestants, we have brought India’s first on-road-off-road (trans-roader) motorcycle ‘Hero Impulse’ into this cult program. The Roadies will certainly get a ride of their life as they battle it out on the Impulse in some of the toughest terrains. We wish all the contestants of MTV Hero Roadies-10 all the very best. Ride safe and have fun.”

WOW!!! We appreciate the minds of Roadies creative team, how original to bring back your all stars :) …jokes apart, well most interesting will be whom they bring and how will the newbie’s adjust with the All Stars and how will Raghu and Ranvijay handle rivalry, both are competitive souls; so it would not be shocking that instead of the participants they start a fight more often and trust me you will definitely have to close your ears when they fight or either the whole episodes will be filled with Beeps. As we always say only time will tell, but now IT’S TIME TO BATTLE FOR GLORY ONLY ON MTV HERO ROADIES SEASON 10!

We will be back with more on the show, till then don’t forget to tell us your Views, Reviews and Comments about this new concept of MTV Roadies…Keep Watching, Keep Enjoying and Keep Reading. :)
