The show stars teams of best friends, selected from thousands of video audition entries that kids send in from across Australia and New Zealand, vying for the outdoor adventure of a lifetime. They battle it out in messy physical challenges that test their wits and their teamwork skills in order to win prizes. Starting from season 5, contestants would vote at the end of each day for 'Champ Orange', the best and fairest. From season 9, 'Champ Orange' is voted for by the public.
