Beat The Champions
About the Show
The fun and games have just begun as FOX gives amateur athletes with big egos and big dreams the chance to BEAT THE CHAMPIONS, a new competition special in which everyday athletes are epically mismatched against the some of the world’s best athletes – four-time Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin, Super Bowl champ superstar Rob Gronkowski and six-time NBA champ Scottie Pippen.
To level the playing field, the champs will be faced with increasingly absurd and hilarious disadvantages, while the amateurs will be given increasing levels of assistance to beat their elite competition – whether in the water, on the line of scrimmage or on the hardwood. However, the greater the assistance needed to beat these champions, the less prize money is awarded to them. Over the course of three rounds, competitors will have a chance to win more than $100,000.
Will these disadvantages be enough for the amateurs to BEAT THE CHAMPIONS? Find out when the one-hour special, hosted by comedian Finesse Mitchell, airs Tuesday, June 30 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
