While the core of the show remains the same, KBC Season 12 comes with a few changes relevant to the current times.
No Live Audience
For the very first time in 20 years, KBC will not host in-studio audience keeping in line with the government-mandated safety guidelines and protocols in response to COVID-19.
The in-studio audience played a huge role as a lifeline – Audience Poll in helping the contestants on the Hotseat move ahead in the game. This year, Audience Poll will be replaced by the lifeline Video-A-Friend.
The other three lifelines remain the same – 50:50, Ask The Expert and Flip The Question. The number of fastest finger first contestants who will compete to be on the hot seat per week has been reduced from the usual 10 to 8.
