The concept of this show is very simple. Every contestant needs to answer few questions. The twist is they will reply by dealing with some distractions. Not some ordinary distractions but quite tricky and bizarre ones. The rules are as follows: In the first round, there must be four contestants. They will answer simple questions, but there will be some distraction. For instance, once they put many rubber bands on their faces while answering the questions. The person with the lowest marks will leave the show. In the second round, they have three contestants.
Once again they try to answer the maximum question to reach semi-finals. One time they all had to drink raw egg shots before answering the question. In the third round, there is a battle between the last two candidates. That is the rapid fire round. They need to answer more questions than their competitor to reach the finals. In the end, the winner has to play one last round to take the prize money. It, again, includes question answer round. V Distraction was an amazing show. Mostly young people would participate in it. They are quizzed with many questions which are very general. The thing that makes this show so loving is the distractions which are really very amusing and entertaining. The show gained popularity not only because of the concept but also because of a charming and hilarious host Ritvik. Shows like these are fun to watch and enjoy.
