Red Bull Rivals

From 10th October

Stars battle it out on Red Bull’s new adrenaline-fuelled TV show

New TV Show, Red Bull Rivals, hits T4 on October 10th, with Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries (former Hollyoaks stars Max and OB) taking up the considerable challenge of going head-to-head in some of the toughest sports imaginable to become Rivals Champion 2009.

Following gruelling training with professional Red Bull athletes from the world of extreme sports, the boys will do battle in a series of challenges from cliff diving to down-hill mountain biking, free running to piloting home-made flying machines.

Each episode the boys will be judged by that week’s Red Bull guest athlete, plus a celebrity friend, (to incl. Chipmunk, BassHunter, Kara Tointon, Master Shortie and Carley Stenson) who will sit in the sidelines and decide the winner. Skill, performance, guts – and a little bit of bribery from the boys – will determine who is eventually chosen to take that week’s crown.

Transmission schedule:

• 10th October – Red Bull Romaniacs (stunt motorcycling) in Transylvania (with special guest Kara Tointon)

• 17rd Oct – Red Bull Art of Motion (Free Running) in Sweden (with special guest BassHunter)

• 24th Oct – Red Bull Cliff Diving in Switzerland (with special guest Chipmunk)

• 31st Oct – Red Bull Flugtag (Building Flying Machines) in Marseille (with special guest Master Shortie)

• 14th Nov – Urban Assault mountain biking in Cape Town (with special guest Carley Stenson)

• 21st Nov – The Best of Red Bull Rivals

Matt Littler commented on partaking in Red Bull Rivals, “I can’t wait to get my hands on these Red Bull athletes and show them who is the boss. It’s going to be a breeze winning the challenges and beating Darren. With my physical prowess and the agility of a cat, this is going to be a walk in the park.” 

Darren Jeffries was a little more pragmatic, “This is going to be the wildest adventure we’ve had yet. The Red Bull athletes we are working with are at the top of their game so if I can grab a tip, beat Matt and win Kara’s heart I’ll be happy with that. That, and living to see another day.”
