We asked W, the channel formally known as Watch, to give us a wave, and they literally have!
The Wave sees couples fly out to Portugal to CHALLENGE THE VERY OCEAN ITSELF in a game of knowledge and endurance – one of them will swim out to pontoons with increasing amounts of cash on them, at each one there is a question – get the question right and money is added to their belt. Get the question wrong and a weight is added instead. Meanwhile their partner is answering questions on the beach with Rylan Clark-Neal to earn more swim time for their partner. The Swimmer is coached and advised by professional Olympic swimmer Kerry-Anne Payne. When The Swimmer thinks they’ve gone as far as they can they must race back to the beach before the time runs out to keep the money. There’s £12,000 up for grabs.
Will Mother Nature help or hinder? This actually sounds like quite a fun idea on paper, hopefully the execution is there. Perhaps it’ll be W
atch‘s biggest quiz success since Bother’s Bar rollercoaster favourite Scream If You Know The Answer with Duncan James.
Shows are an hour long, looks like they’re only on Monday to Friday this week. W
