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.
Season 1:Male and female CBD contestants compete in teams of four. Elimination rounds are gender segregated.
Season 2:Male and female contestants compete individually. Elimination rounds are gender segregated. Two brand new contestants revealed.
Season 3:Same format as season 2.
Season 4:Men from this point only compete. Four team format is returned. Limbo twist is introduced.
Season 5:Same format as season 4. Limbo twist not used.
Season 6:Same format as seasons 4-5. Limbo twist is used.
Seasons 1 and 2 were hosted by Tony Hawk. Season 3 was hosted by J.D. Roth. Season 4 was hosted by Steve-O. Season 5 was originally hosted by Steve-O, but early into the season due to personal matters, Steve-O withdrew himself as host, and Jim Breuer became host. Season 6 was hosted by Mark Moses.
CBD Announced in May 2019, that Extreme Challenge will air it's first ever fall/winter season in late 2019. Bill Nye will serve as host.
