Enduring extreme hardships is integral to practicing the ancient Japanese art of the ninja. Nine individuals take part in a 24-day survival challenge to find out who has what it takes to consider themselves a true-blue ninja. The challenge includes eight grueling missions -- trekking through a frigid swamp, surviving overnight on an icy glacier, crossing a raging river, escaping imprisonment, and more -- created by Jinichi Kawakami, Japan's last ninja grandmaster, which push the wannabe warriors' body, mind and spirit to their breaking points. Those who complete the entire survival challenge receive a final lesson from the master himself in Iga City, Japan, the legendary home of the ninja.

"American Tarzan" welcomes five men and two women to the remote Caribbean island of Dominica and asks them to not only survive the wild but also to master it. Mimicking a time when man was truly Tarzan-like -- stalking prey, climbing to treetops, utilizing every resource to stay alive -- the competitors live off the land while they traverse a brutal obstacle course highlighted by a distinct jungle, the coast, a mountain and a canyon. They face conditions that early inhabitants tackled hundreds of years ago, relying on nothing more than basic tools, mental toughness and brute strength, until only one is crowned the king -- or queen -- of the jungle.
