THE SHOW

ISSUE OF DEBATE is a game show designed for the web. Each episodes consists of two contestants that hash it out verbally over a given topic. Contestants battle against fierce opponents, battling against time, for the last word, and most of all for the audiences approval!

Contestants are linked to the voting system via their social media account. To win contestants might need approval from thousands of viewers. No matter what topic the contestants defend, viewers get to vote for:

1) Who’s debating skills are the best.
2) Which issue viewers align with.
