Review: This korean reality show gathered 100 of the strongest athletes, bodybuilders, fitness trainers, etc to find the perfect body.

There were 5 quests they had to go through. Pre quest is hanging on to the bars. 1st quest is one on one death match which cut the contestants down to 50.

2nd quest is the sand bags race which further cut down the contestants to 25. Survival round gave 5 losers from the sand bags race a chance to get back into the game.

3rd quest is pulling the 1.5 ton yacht to shore which trimmed down the contestants to 20. 4th quest was 5 different mythology games and the winner of each game became the top 5 contestants.

The final quest was a set of 4 games that focused on strength, stamina, endurance and balance.

I thought the games were reasonable and not too complex. Every person even the females had equal chance of winning the game even against the bigger and bulkier opponents.

I love all the contestants, i didnt have a clear favorite, and i didn’t mind who wins coz they were all winners. I love that they are all competitive and displayed good sportsmanship, even when they lose. They also supported and cheered for each other. They had dignity, tenacity and willpower. And they all had fun.

My only comment was the title of the show is physical but in the end, it was the mental and emotional strength of the contestant that won the game.

The top 5 were unexpected, as well as the ultimate winner, but that’s why the show was interesting coz you never know who will win.

Rating: 8.5/10
