Three handsome and hunky men composed of Troy Montero, Antonio Aquitaña and Paolo Paraiso together with big momma comedian Petite defy the limits of physical tests as they take on the superhuman challenges.

First off, Marian Rivera takes on the first challenge which is the Hanging Treadmill. Hanging 30 to 40 feet above the ground, can Marian complete the challenge without falling? Who among the challengers will last running over the hanging treadmill? How will Petite fare given his 200-lb. weight?

And it is just the beginning. After the dizzying height, the challengers will then have to pull a public jeepney on their own. Not only that, the race to the finish line gets more exhausting because for every five meters, passengers will have to board the vehicle.

For the final battle, Troy, Antonio, Paolo and Petite must get through a tough question and answer portion: Extra Challenge Silya Elektrika. Who will stay focused and answer each question without getting distracted and petrified by the electric current charged at them?

Extra Challenge airs Saturdays and Sundays after 24 Oras Weekend on GMA 7.

Girl Power On ‘Extra Challenge’ this weekend!

Extra Challengers Geneva Cruz, Sheena Halili, Mystica, and Rochelle Pangilinan get to experience just how hard it is to earn money this weekend in Navotas.

In order to help two families who have volunteered to take them in, the ladies go through a number of extra challenging tasks.

Mystica seems to find the first challenge extra difficult—is it too much for the Queen of Split?

In the challenge Gaano Kahigpit ang Kapit ng Gipit, the challengers must each cross a slackline suspended 30 ft. over the Navotas Bay. As if it’s just a simple routine, one of the ladies managed to cross not once but thrice on the 45 ft.-long rope. But not everyone is as lucky—who will fall and who will feel the urge to puke because of the towering height?

To top it all, Geneva, Sheena, Mystica, and Rochelle vie for the title Reyna ng Banyera and of course, the whopping pot money.

Meanwhile, the children of Isla Pulo, who attend classes in a makeshift classroom, meet their newest pair of teachers—none other than Extra Challenge hosts Richard Gutierrez and Marian Rivera!

‘Extra Challenge’ Airs Tonight!

Hosts Richard Gutierrez and Marian Rivera are sure to leave the audience at the edge of their seats

There’s no stopping the heart-racing, adrenaline-rushing, premiere of the much-awaited reality game show on Philippine TV, “Extra Challenge.” Witness the biggest change on weekend TV viewing tonight, Oct. 27.

Hosts Richard Gutierrez and Marian Rivera are sure to leave the audience at the edge of their seats as they welcome, together with Boobay, the first set of challengers in the exciting opening of “Extra Challenge.”

Witness how Dennis Trillo, Kylie Padilla, Rafael Rosell, and Alessandra de Rossi risk themselves in the most heart-stopping series of challenges they will ever face-a pack of hungry zombies, roomy yet suffocating coffins, squirmy, slimy, creepy crawlers, and a scary, muddled jungle. Who among them has what it takes to snag the prize and survive “Extra Challenge?”

One of them finds it difficult to move out of a coffin-one that hangs no less than 60 feet above the sea. Another appears to be delectably-appealing to the crawlers as the insects move their way up a challenger’s intimate parts. And if it’s not so taxing, someone is not going to make it to the awarding rites due to overfatigue and a rapid drop of body temperature.

Kill the curiosity and watch the pilot episode of “Extra Challenge” tonight at 7:30 only on GMA-7.

Marian Rivera joins Richard Gutierrez in hosting “Extra Challenge”!
