Extreme Challenge is a show which was originally intended as an experiment to bring male and female Competition Blind Date series contestants together in an all-star battle, has now become one of CBD's most successful programs.

The main premise of Extreme challenge is that contestants compete in teams, and/or individually in extreme mental and physical challenges, also competing in elimination type rounds.

All contestants on Extreme Challenge (with the exceptions of season 2 and 3) have all been on a previous CBD show.

As of Season 4, men only compete in Extreme Challenge. Also in that same season, a twist called "Limbo" allows for contestants to return to the game.

Extreme Challenge seasons 1-6, all aired during late winter, Spring or in the Summer. Season 7 is set to be the first ever fall/early winter season of Extreme Challenge.
