"Now, coming off its huge and instantaneous success in Holland, with SBS believing in its potential based on the strength of the format, we are thrilled to have sold it to the US.

"This US format sale, coming just six weeks after its premiere in Holland, and on the heels of sales to the UK, France and Australia, represents the sale of the format into the world's most important television markets."
