This show features well-known TV and showbiz or entertainment personalities or reality TV personalities in an obstacle-themed reality TV game series for an entire season. Each season comes with distinct themes, and contestants are paired in teams or individually according to the team. The show uses traditional challenges with modern and mind-blogging obstacles and tasks for the participants. The result? Viewers get full-on entertainment with some adrenaline rush, melodrama, love, hate, etc.!
