Survivor meets The Bridge meets Hunted meets The Amazing Race?
Meets Million dollar island…
It sounds a bit like that MTV show that aired a couple of years ago where the contestants were stranded and had to keep moving and collect cash along the way but relinquish some for food/luxuries. What was the name of that?
Cutting it very close for filming in about 3 months.
Stranded with a Million Dollars?
I saw that on a list of MTV competitive reality shows and dismissed it because it was 2017. That sounds like the one but I can’t believe it aired five years ago. Time is flying. I feel like I’m eating breakfast every five minutes lately.
Is this just Nine trying to spoil Million Dollar Island and Survivor?
Sounds like more rubbish coming to Nine. Don’t really see the appeal in this.
In the rugged Alps of New Zealand’s southern island, a group of strangers will embark on an epic quest unlike anything ever seen. With their backpacks containing an equal share of 1 million dollars, the group must reach the peak of a distant mountain in just 14 days to win the cash they’re carrying. Along the journey they’ll need to work as a team as they tackle dangerous terrain, wild conditions and overcome adrenaline-charged challenges that block their path to the mountain. But what happens when members of the group fall behind, will the rest of the trekkers slow down and risk not reaching it up the mountain in time? Or will they cut them loose and press ahead to cash in?
