Most people travel for leisure, picking the best spots for shopping or lounging on a beach but some people want more action. This October, action entertainment channel KIX premieres the brand new reality series Extreme Ends, to give audiences a glimpse of extreme opposite sides of the vibrant city, Hong Kong.
Featuring four celebrities from four Southeast Asian countries, popular actor and swimmer Enchong Dee represents the Philippines, taking on this adventure with his good celebrity friend, Ria Atayde. These two friends are adventurous travellers well-suited to the exciting contrasts selected for Extreme Ends, where each episode features a different celebrity and their special guests facing a different ‘extreme’ theme such as Day & Night and High & Low. In this way, viewers will see Hong Kong in a new light as each episode highlights extreme opposites to showcase the fascinating contrasts, non-stop intensity and distinctively trendy attributes of Hong Kong.
“We’re very pleased to be working with Hong Kong Tourism Board once more, and excited to give audiences a different perspective, showing them the contrasts and duality of Hong Kong. With each of the celebrities and their guests going through specially-selected activities, viewers also get to see a different side of their personality, revealing the relationships they share – this is a wonderful formula that invites viewers to travel with them on every adventure,” said Betty Tsui, Vice President, Programming – KIX and Thrill, Celestial Tiger Entertainment.
“We are glad to partner Celestial Tiger Entertainment again, given the success of The Ultimate BROcation. Hong Kong remains as Southeast Asians’ destination of choice for its diversified dining options, shopping experiences, nightlife and events; as well as thrilling adventures overseeing breathtaking natural sceneries. The celebrities from the different Southeast Asian countries in the series will definitely bring new insights and inspire the audience to create their very own authentic experiences when they visit Hong Kong, and discover Hong Kong like a local,” said Raymond Chan, Regional Director, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong Tourism Board.
Sharing his experience, Enchong said, “I was not expecting KIX’s Extreme Endsto take me on such an experience. Starring in this adventure reality show really gave me a chance to try new and exciting things. From playing my first virtual reality game to zip lining in Hong Kong, it really blew my expectations away. Going on this adventure with Ria and hearing about her own experiences after was amazing. We did end up comparing whose trip was better though. Naturally it was mine!”
