The One – A Psychic Competition Show Premieres On Oct 5 On Seven
The One a show where psychics compete against each other to win the title of best psychic must come under the reality TV genre.
The show will premiere on Channel Seven on Wednesday 5 October at 7.30pm. The show is hosted by Andrew Daddo and 10 psychics will go head to head in challenges with one eliminated each week.
The publicity blurb says:
The Search for Australia’s Most Gifted Psychic, hosted by Andrew Daddo, will feature 10 of Australia’s top psychics in a quest to determine who is ‘The One’ and challenge the way we think about psychic phenomena.
Each week The One’s psychics will showcase their abilities in a series of studio and location challenges, such as finding a thief on a crowded train, or solving a real unpublicised murder.
Psychic abilities including clairvoyance, telepathy, medical intuition, predictive and remote viewing, mediumship and psychometry will be explored throughout the series.
The One’s expert panel – metaphysicist Stacey Demarco and skeptic Richard Saunders – will decide who stays and who goes until the final episode when Australia will vote which of the remaining three psychics is ‘The One’.
Host Andrew Daddo finds it impossible to reject the psychics’ level of skill and dedication.
“To dismiss their intuitions and talents would be incredibly narrow minded and naïve,” says Daddo. “The fact psychics can do things most people can’t is not a reason to reject them. If psychic power is real, they should be celebrated.”
“I love watching them read people and situations, almost as much as I enjoy watching the person being read.”
With years of experience between them, The One’s panelists will be tough judges.
Demarco is an internationally-published author on metaphysical matters.
She has been impressed so far by the 10 psychics’ abilities and talents.
“I think the group we have on the show are very talented and I look forward to what they will do,” says Demarco.
Saunders has devoted more than a decade to testing psychic theory and is a member of Australian Skeptics, a group that investigates the paranormal from a scientific viewpoint.
He believes The One will also challenge people’s perception of what a skeptic is.
“I will never be a ‘cynic’ when it comes to believing in psychics. I am happy for psychic powers to exist and for all I know everyone is a psychic,” says Saunders.
“But until now the evidence has not convinced me so I am still skeptical.”
The One start on Channel 7 on Wednesday October 5 at 7.30pm
