'Kicking & Screaming' cast of 10 survivalists and 10 novices revealed by Fox
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/17/2017
Kicking & Screaming's cast of 20 people -- 10 expert survivalists paired with 10 pampered novices -- has been announced by Fox.
Among the novices, the cast will include a former beauty pageant winner, a model, and a professional gamer when Kicking & Screaming premieres Thursday, March 9 at 9PM ET/PT on Fox.
The network announced last January it had picked up Kicking & Screaming, a reality competition series that will pair up 10 expert survivalists -- who are accustomed to expeditions and fending for themselves -- with privileged partners for a dangerous and physically-challenging race in the jungles of Fiji.
Kicking & Screaming, hosted by Hannah Simone from New Girl, will drop unlikely duos into the wilderness where they must overcome extreme weather conditions, hunger, raging rivers and frightening animals together.
The first team to cross the finish line will win the grand prize of $500,000, but only after its expert spends the entire race dealing with a person who enjoys "glamping" and believes "roughing it" is skipping a weekly massage.
Kicking & Screaming is being produced by Lionsgate Television and executive produced by Matt Kunitz, who has also been behind Wipeout and Fear Factor. Anthony Dominici also serves as an executive producer.
Below is the list of survivalists and novices who will compete on Kicking & Screaming this spring:
- Ben Domian, a 33-year-old pre-med student and former Air Force survival, evasion, resistance and escape specialist from Oviedo, FL
