The Bridge: Race to a Fortune

The Bridge

AJ Odudu hosts as the second series of the gruelling reality competition continues, on the uninhabited islands of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. There’s double the drama, and double the money up for grabs, as two teams go head-to-head to get their hands on a £200,000 jackpot. The 16 strangers must put aside their egos and differences to tackle the ultimate test of physical ability, mental skill and teamwork, as they race to build a bridge over 1,000 feet of water in just 12 days to reach the cash, which lies below a tower on an island between two beaches. But there’s a twist: only one person from the winning team can take home this huge prize. Adventurer and explorer Aldo Kane joins the competitors to oversee challenges that will test the teams’ nerves and ability. Along the way, the teams face surprise dilemmas and devious temptations, as we discover who is prepared to deceive their teammates for personal gain. Working together is key, but in this pressure-cooker environment, everyone must decide who to trust and, most importantly, who is worthy of the £200k. In the second episode, the two teams are now three days into their challenge and are forced to appoint a leader in the hope of kick-starting their bridge builds. One member of each team is also given the chance to be a mole in the opposite team. Who will feel the pressure and who will stop at nothing in the race to the money? AJ Odudu presents and ex-Royal Marine Commando Aldo Kane oversees the action.
