The Big Adventure appears to be an Amazing Race style reality show except under more extreme conditions and in the one location. Jason Dundas will host the show.

Here was the official blurb:

Channel Seven today announced television presenter and model, Jason Dundas, will host THE BIG ADVENTURE – a new reality-adventure series which sees contestants compete in extreme conditions to win the prize of a lifetime.

Mr Dundas is currently based in New York where for the last three years he has co-hosted Vh1’s Big Morning Buzz Live weekdays around America, live from Times Square. He is also Menswear Ambassador for Australian retail giant David Jones.

Mr Dundas said: “The second I heard about the concept for The Big Adventure I was hooked! This show taps into the heart of what I believe makes us all Australian, our passion for adventure. After hosting 400 episodes of morning tv in New York, I’m really excited for my next big adventure; to return home and front one of Australia’s most exciting new tv shows. And to change someone’s life forever!”

THE BIG ADVENTURE is an original Seven Productions concept, from the makers of Seven’s hit reality-competition series, My Kitchen Rules and House Rules.

The series will go into production later this year.

The Sunday Telegraph had more information:

The Big Adventure, will see contestants compete in extreme conditions to win the prize of a lifetime.

Keeping the finer details of the production under wraps, the energetic 32-year-old teased us by saying the original concept had him hooked within “two minutes” of it being pitched to him by the network in December.

“It’s positioned all on a remote island in the South Pacific,” Dundas said … but it’s notSurvivor. “There’s unique challenges that have never happened before on TV” … but it’s notThe Amazing Race.

“There’s a group of people who are taken out of their everyday lives and put in a scenario where there’s a hidden secret on the island which these people battle out for,” he added … but it’s not Big Brother or The Mole.

And finally, “this particular secret will change their life forever or allow them to live out a dream,” Dundas hinted.

I am intrigued so will definitely checking it out.

The Big Adventure on SEVEN later this year.
