'Shopping Monsters' is a stripped daily entertainment format in which five women each week compete to see who can get the best makeover in a limited amount of time, and on a fixed budget. Every day one contestant puts together her new style, and is then given a secret score by her four rivals. At the end of the week, the woman with the highest total score wins a cash prize.
Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, said: “Shopping Monsters is one of the most popular and most talked about formats of Global Agency. There has been a high level of interest in the show and we’re pleased to announce these deals. We are expecting to see it on air in 10 territories during 2015”
Nataša Roksandić, Spokesperson and Head of Communications of RTL Croatia, commented: “This big international success is finally coming to the Croatian market. We hope that our viewers will enjoy it as much as it is enjoyed in other countries”.
