Extra Challenge

Extra Challenge is a Philippine reality show (formerly lifestyle show) developed by GMA News and Public Affairs which premiered in 1999. As a reality competition, Extra Challenge features celebrities pitted against each other in several challenges. The show is patterned after American reality-based series, such as Survivor, The Amazing Race, and Fear Factor; Extra Challenge, however, offers a distinctly Filipino style to entice and entertain local viewers as it fuses the trends of the reality show into a single program. Majority of the contestants featured are celebrities, contrasting the standard of their American counterparts. Another deviation is that the hosts themselves initiate or participate in the challenges.

Famous quotes containing the words challenge and/or extra:

    I don’t have any problem with a reporter or a news person who says the President is uninformed on this issue or that issue. I don’t think any of us would challenge that. I do have a problem with the singular focus on this, as if that’s the only standard by which we ought to judge a president. What we learned in the last administration was how little having an encyclopedic grasp of all the facts has to do with governing.
    David R. Gergen (b. 1942)

    But that beginning was wiped out in fear
    The day I swung suspended with the grapes,
    And was come after like Eurydice
    And brought down safely from the upper regions;
    And the life I live now’s an extra life
    I can waste as I please on whom I please.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
