The contestants of Keshet’s new reality show 2025 have been confined to the mini-city for more than seven weeks. But next week, they will get a brief break from the compact town in order to exercise their right to vote.

Israel’s national elections will be held on April 9, and more than six million Israelis have the right to vote – including the 11 residents residing in the 2025 city. Keshet announced on Monday that it will allow the contestants to return home and exercise their right to vote next week.

Keshet said that six of the show’s participants will be voting in Tel Aviv, two in Herzliya, one in Ra’anana, another in Kadima and the last one in Kfar Yona.

The show’s producers said that the 2025 cameras will follow the contestants on their voting journeys – and potentially document them meeting family and friends – before returning to the sealed city on the outskirts of Yavne.

The groundbreaking reality show will come to an end in just a couple of weeks, and crown one of its residents – the one who has amassed the most “money” in the city – its first winner.
