Get your blood pressure checked, have a blood work up, and count your heartbeat for you are about to be blown away by the exciting premiere of Extra Challenge on October 27, Saturday.
Every weekend, EXTRA CHALLENGE promises a pulse-racing, heart-stopping, and adrenaline-pumping series as challengers are confronted with three challenges. In each challenge, they must place a wager from the initial capital of P100,000.00 that the program gives them. The challenger who completes the task fast enough earns EXTRA money. Those who allow fear to stop them from completing the challenge, lose whatever they wager. But the game gets better as the third and last challenge comes. All the challengers, regardless of their performance in the first two challenges, have the chance to take home the pot money if they succeed in conquering the third round. Excited yet?
Creepy crawlies, slimy creatures, towering heights, haunting expeditions, and extreme physical activities make up the challenges. No round is an easy one for every challenge will test the limits of the participants.
Extra special casting is made to give EXTRA CHALLENGE an extra edge. Richard Gutierrez, the face of reality and adventure shows, and primetime queen Marian Rivera are reunited after the success of their team up in GMA Films' My Best Friend's Girlfriend. The viewers have already witnessed their on-screen chemistry-the same appeal displayed in their recent project together, Pinoy Adventures, which was also hosted by Richard.
"First hosting project ko ang EXTRA CHALLENGE at talaga namang excited ako. Kinakabahan ako siyempre ngayon ko lang 'to gagawin pero game ako sa kahit anong challenge. Magiging extra masaya ito, promise!", shares Marian.
Richard has loosen up a bit compared to his other hosting gigs "Coming from Survivor where I come off as a very strict host, this time the viewers will see me get more relaxed especially with the challengers. But it doesn't mean the challenges will be less intense. This time, they're bigger and definitely better."
Joining the powerful tandem of Richard and Marian is public affairs TV personality and stand up comedian Boobay. With her natural comic self, each episode promises to be more fun and outrageous.
EXTRA CHALLENGE is going to dare you, scare you, make you cry, and make you laugh. Expect a roller coaster of emotions with grander sets, level-up adventures, shocking twists, and intensified intrigues and dramas.
Be extra ready on October 27, Saturday, only on GMA-7.
