Once again, Executive Producers David Broome, Sylvester Stallone, with Netflix have delivered an incredibly epic event competition, that is fun to watch and highly entertaining. “Ultimate Beastmaster” has extremely high quality production values that should be acknowledged.
The Emmy for Outstanding Reality Competition Series was created for series like this. In season two the challenges athletes face inside the beast require them the use of physical ability and strategic planning to make it past each level. With every jump, leap, climb, swing, push, pull, kick, crawl, slip, fall, and elimination the audience is right there. “Ultimate Beastmaster” is executed with dedicated precision to ensure viewers are having an interactive experience with the athletes competing.
In case you missed season one on “Ultimate Beastmaster” there are two hosts from each of the six countries that have athletes competing. In season two the hosts clearly enjoy interacting with each other and it creates a wave of positivity that helps elevate “Ultimate Beastmaster” into a category of its own. For season two (2) the hosts are:
United States: Retired NFL player and sports commentator Tiki Barber and comedian Chris DiStefano
Italy: DJ Francesco (Francesco Facchinetti) and supermodel Biance Balti
France: Actor Gilles Marini and sports journalist Sandy Heribert
China: TV personality Bin Gu and actress and singer Du Qun Yi
India: Actor and martial arts artist Vidyut Jamwal and Actress Sarah Jane Dias
Spain: Police officer and Olympic Gold Medalist Saul Craviotto and TV host Paula Vazquez
During production they are essentially filming six different versions at the same time, each can be released at the same time, they are edited so the hosts for that country are the main hosts, and it is completely genius. The production itself is massive, requires skillful direction and the simultaneous use of up to 50 different cameras. An average scripted series or unscripted series uses between 1 – 4 cameras depending on the angles and filming style.
The US team features two outstanding obstacle course athletes with have immense talent John Gerzik and Kyle Soderman who make to the final challenge in episode 10.
