Extreme Challenge is a show which was originally intended as an experiment to bring male and female Competition Blind Date series contestants together in a 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 exception of season 2) 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.
Season 1:Male and female CBD contestants compete in teams of four. Elimination rounds are gender segregated.
Season 2-3:Male and female contestants compete individually. Two brand new contestants revealed.
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.
