The series is a competition (although animated) to win a cash prize of $100,000 in the first season to $1,000,000 in every other season. This series itself takes elements of other widely known series such as Survivor, Endurance, Iron Chef America, The Apprentice, Project Runway, American Idol, I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, The Real World/Road Rules Challenge, The Voice, Big Brother, The X Factor and Wipeout. Like the other series, the show is rated TV-PG because it contains mild profanity, censored language, brief censored nudity and some suggestive dialogue. When more suggestive dialogue is presented, the episodes are rated TV-PG-D. The first three seasons are rated TV-PG-D while the latter two are rated TV-PG.
The show originally premiered on Teletoon in Canada on July 8, 2007 and it currently airs their ever since.
