Ultimate Beastmaster 3 is a thing and the UK and Australia are in it

By | February 27, 2018

Hopefully it will continue going in the right direction after Series 2 turned out to be much more watchable than series one, this time round nine countries will compete including the UK and Australia, with wrestler Stu Bennett (aka Wade Barrett) and journalist Kate Abdo commentating for the UK and Dannii Minogue (!) and rugby player Nick Cummins commentating for Australia. And the Brazilians and South Koreans are back! Hurrah.

Season 3 will go out on Netflix later in the year.

Wade Barrett joins Richard Osman, Mark Labbett AND Tom Davis in being a 6ft 7in game/reality show connected celebrity. I wonder who would win that fight?

    Twitter has already suggested Peter Jones and Stephen Merchant are also 6’7″.

    If you were to plot all this on a graph, 6’7″ would be the tallest bit, appropriately.

    If you’re backing anyone other than Barrett in this fight, I got bad news for ya…

      I think Netflix has some genres/shows where they just don’t want to admit any failure and commission another season to “proof the success”, despite there not being much success. These are the shows that normally end after two seasons and with very little marketing budget spent on the second.
      This theory means Ultimate Beastmaster was actually successful, however they filmed season three while season two was on, so this is a really weird case… And they didn’t spend any money on marketing the second season (at least in Germany) at all.

        I’d imagine it’s a cheap way of getting original content in a lot of different countries with the localized hosts (who might not watch subtitled shows), plus you do have the sunk cost of the set..

    ITV have axed Bigheads so no more It’s a knockout style games.

      Weaver placed it in Category 5 (worth a try, but doesn’t work). Reasonably fair, I think.
