East Lancs TikTok star Max Balegde to host Amazon ‘entertainment experience'
Darwen TikTok star, Max Balegde, is to front a campaign from Amazon Prime alongside Sam Thompson, Tilly Ramsay and other famous faces.
To celebrate Prime Day, Amazon is launching The Prime Day Dream House, a unique entertainment experience in London, which will play host to an unmissable night of online entertainment on Wednesday, July 6.
The Prime Day Dream House is inspired by the topsy-turvy, playful nature of dreams, and some of the country’s most exciting content creators and celebrity talent will come together in the house ahead of Prime Day to deliver a series of events, all available online for free via Amazon and talent social channels.
As well as Max, who has 1.8 million TikTok followers, the line-up features pop sensation RAYE, TV chef Big Zuu, well-known author, influencer and foodie Tilly Ramsay (daughter of Gordon), TV personality Sam Thompson, footballers Jarrod Bowen and Ben Foster, and social influencer Timbsy.
Members of the public can tune in on Amazon's Instagram page on Wednesday to follow the action with Max Balegde from 7pm.
Split across three rooms in the Prime Day Dream House, the evening will see the participating talent collaborating across a variety of interactive challenges and entertaining moments.
The night’s entertainment, compered by Sam Thompson, brings to life just some of the many benefits of Amazon Prime, including:
From the Kitchen
Big Zuu and will go head-to-head in a cult cooking challenge with Tilly Ramsay.
Using mystery ingredients delivered by Amazon Fresh, each contestant will unbox their items live and have just 15 minutes to whip up a fresh dish from scratch – with the winner crowned the ‘Fresh Out the Box’ champion.
Talking about his role in the Prime Day Dream House ‘Kitchen’, Big Zuu said: “What a line-up, I’m honoured to be part of it.
"It’s going to be a night full of laughs and quality banter with some amazing people in a truly amazing setting. Make sure you follow along guys, it’s going to be special.”
Tilly Ramsay added: “I’m so excited for the Prime Day Dream House and can’t wait to go head to head with Big Zuu in our challenge and show him how it’s done in the Ramsay house.
"It’s going to be an amazing night with some unmissable entertainment. Bring it on!”
From the Living Room
West Ham and England international footballer, Jarrod Bowen, will take on fellow footballer Ben Foster in the ultimate FIFA challenge in honour of Prime Gaming.
Refereed by popular sporting presenter, Timbsy, fans at home will be able to submit questions to the talent to answer during the match, followed by a sports trivia battle – with one lucky audience member winning a prize on behalf of the victor.
From the Bedroom
British singer-songwriter, RAYE, will top-off the evening of exclusive entertainment by performing an intimate set, presented by Amazon Music.
The performance is set to feature some of RAYE’s popular hits, as well as her new single 'Hard Out Here' from her upcoming debut album.
Attendees will not only actively participate in the interactive Prime Day Dream House ‘Show’, but will also get the chance to interact directly with the room ‘sets’ afterwards – featuring an oversized walk-in fridge, topsy-turvy furniture and a ‘sky swing’.
Sam Thompson, Prime Day Dream House host, said: “I’ve been looking forward to Prime Day since the last one.
"It’s such a great time to find deals on Amazon while doing our part to support small businesses as well.
"This year, I’ll be hosting the Prime Day Dream House celebrations with Big Zuu vs. Tilly Ramsay happening in the kitchen, Jarrod Bowen against Ben Foster in the ultimate FIFA face-off and an epic performance by RAYE, what more could you want?”
Social media star Max Balegde will be taking over Amazon's Instagram page and will be streaming live from the house with exclusive behind-the-scenes content through the day and night.
