The Host[edit]

The Show was hosted by the television actor Mukul Dev. About the show's Indian version, Mukul said;

It's only when it comes to food tasks that they (Indians) lag behind because unlike people in China and South East Asia, we are not used to insects and raw meat. The most difficult one is to eat the raw organs of goat.[2]

Every week a number of contestants (celebrities) participated in the show. The winner got Rs. 10 lakhs. In every episode new contestants participated.
