Jeeto Pakistan (Urdu: جیتو پاکستان‎; transl. Win Pakistan) is a Pakistani game show, hosted by actor Fahad Mustafa on ARY Digital. The show was launched on 18 May 2014.[1][2][3][4] It has been called the "biggest game show" of Pakistan.[5] Jeeto Pakistan's participants are selected randomly from a studio audience, who require passes to attend the show.[6]

Overview[edit]

The show is divided into several segments, each one offering contestants prizes in return for achieving a set of challenges or game tasks given by the host.[1][7] The prizes offered range from cars and motorcycles to gold, cash, vacation packages and household items.[8] The show is funded by sponsors, advertisers and commercial brands.[8]

Jeeto Pakistan is occasionally broadcast from other cities, with some shows having been held in Lahore,[1] Islamabad,[9] Faisalabad, Multan and Dubai.[2]

During the month of Ramadan every year, the show runs a daily transmission in the evening.[10]

Jeeto Pakistan League[edit]

In the Ramadan season of 2020, the show's format was changed in light of the coronavirus pandemic and the studio audience was eliminated. Instead, a "league"-based format was introduced where teams representing five major cities would compete against each other, with each team led by a notable celebrity. New contestants would be drawn for each episode while maintaining social distancing, and the top two teams with most points would qualify for a final play-off. Members of the public would be able to participate in the show through live calls.[11]
