The Summit

Nine announces action-packed adventure show The Summit with Aussie actor Jai Courtney

It's a thrilling marathon of endurance, survival and greed.

Another day, another reality show and this time it’s Nine’s The Summit, starring Aussie actor and Hollywood star, Jai Courtney.

Set amid the magical mountains of New Zealand’s South Island, The Summit is an epic action adventure in one of the most beautiful locations on earth, the backdrop to some of the world’s biggest movie franchises.

Courtney will be joined by 14 strangers as they set out with backpacks containing an equal share of one million dollars.

With the goal of reaching the peak of a distant mountain in 14 days, they will need to work as a team as they tackle dangerous terrain and wild weather conditions.

The contestants will also have to overcome adrenaline-charged challenges that block their path to the mountain peak – the holy grail.

Morals will be severely tested, physical limits pushed to breaking point, and bonds busted — sounds like our type of TV!

But how many of these 14 mega-money chasers will reach the enticing summit in time? And who will walk away with the cash bulging in their backpacks?

Welcome to The Summit … where getting up is just the beginning. 

The Summit. Coming soon to 9 and 9Now.
