Mariko Ebralidze — she who competed with the Shin at Eurovision 2014 — didn’t let her 15th place finish slow her down. She remains a popular public figure in Georgia, and is using her talents elsewhere. She’s currently hosting ‘Playing With Words’, an amusing game show which consists of three rounds. Participants receive cards with letters from the Georgian alphabet and must created words in a limited amoung of time (thankfully Mariko is no longer spelling “parachute”). The participants play for money and the length and difficulty of the words correspond to Georgian lari. The show airs every day at 19:30, except on weekends, on the First Channel of the Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB).
