Our host and Games Master: Wairangi Koopu, surveys the newest batch of Māori and Pacific warrior hopefuls.
This year there are two major differences: they are celebrities; and there are wāhine in the mix. Over 7 episodes they will compete until there is only one winner standing, who will win $10,000 for a chosen charity.
In this action packed season opener our contestants will be tested on land and sea: physically, mentally and spiritually.
Team work will be the deciding factor, and everyone is faced with a harsh decision.
