World’s Toughest Race in Fiji heads to Prime Video
June 24, 2020
World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji will launch on Amazon Prime Video on August 14th in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.
This 10-episode adventure series, hosted by Bear Grylls and executive produced by Mark Burnett, tells the story of the ultimate expedition race, in which 66 teams from 30 countries race non-stop for 11 days, 24 hours a day, across hundreds of miles of rugged Fijian terrain complete with mountains, jungles and oceans.
Filmed last autumn in Fiji, World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji is a battle to the finish for 330 competitors (who form teams of five, including four racers and an assistant crew member); however, the greatest challenges are not the competing teams, but the unforgiving 671 kilometers of terrain which stands between all those competing and the finish line. Viewers worldwide will see the limits of human physical and mental endurance tested like never before.
The series, produced by MGM Television in association with Amazon Studios, comes from an award-winning team in television including host and executive producer Grylls (Man vs Wild, Running Wild), showrunner and executive producer Lisa Hennessy (Eco-Challenge, The Biggest Loser), and executive producers Burnett (Survivor, The Voice), Eric Van Wagenen (Survivor, The Amazing Race), Barry Poznick for MGM Studios, and Delbert Shoopman, Grylls’ producing partner.
