Six intrepid athletes, eight ancient sporting festivals, one victor; this is Last Man Standing. From an inter-village flag tournament in Senegal to the sacred Festival of Death in Brazil, Last Man Standing dares a unique group of western adventurers to rise to the challenge of some of the world’s most remote tribes. They will encounter the likes of wrestling, endurance running, archery and even bullock racing in the ultimate test of strength, skill, stamina and steel. However, not only their sporting prowess will be tested but their adaptability as they immerse themselves in the rites and the rituals that lie at the heart of each event. Stripped of all the trappings of western culture but the clothes on their back and having found their way to the remote locale our adventurers will be required to learn the ways of their hosts, living as they do. This includes hunting, dancing, black magic, indigenous drugs, piercing and even blood letting. We will follow them through every trial and tribulation as they train alongside past champions to ultimately compete against one another in each tribe’s ancient sporting event. Each experience is utterly transformational – for the mind, the body and the soul. Our courageous participants are Harvard skier Corey, gym-junkie Londoner Rajko, Floridian BMX-rider Jason, salsa-dancing, kick-boxing Brummie Mark, Oklahoman strongman Brad and Oxford theology graduate Richard. Over the course of eight weeks we will discover which of our adventurers have what it takes to be the last man standing.

|S02E01||Suri Stick-Fighting||14/10/2008||In southern Ethiopia they take on the deadly sport of Suri stick-fighting, but before they can enter the ring they must learn to live with a tribe whose way of life has barely changed for hundreds of years. This means a spot of tribal scarring and some internal cleansing known as the Dokai.|
|S02E02||Samo Wrestling||21/10/2008||They head to a harvest festival in Burkina Faso, a tiny land-locked country in West Africa. There they must ask for help from sacred crocodiles and ancestral masks before taking part in a brutal inter-village wrestling contest involving some of the country's top fighters.|
|S02E03||Sherpa Mountain Race||28/10/2008||In the Himalayas, the lads are living with Nepalese Sherpas and learning to train at extreme altitude in freezing conditions. Their goal is a punishing race up a mountain in the shadow of Everest, carrying a slab of sacred rock on their backs for the construction of a Buddhist prayer wall.|
|S02E04||Wauja Canoe Race||04/11/2008||The lads are in central Brazil at the height of the rainy season to race canoes against the Wauja tribe.

|S02E05||Bhutanese Archery||11/11/2008||The athletes are in Bhutan to learn the national sport of archery. They have to fire arrows more than twice the Olympic distance, over the heads spectators, to hit a target the size of a dinner plate. It is so difficult that even the experts have a special dance when anyone scores a hit, and the lads are right at the centre of a serious grudge match between two villages.|

|S02E07||Philippines: Sikaran Kick-Fighting||25/11/2008||The athletes take on the sport of sikaran, a brutal form of kick-fighting where the hands and arms may only be used for defence. After being put through their paces in a tough training regime, they must prove themselves worthy of wearing the prized red pants of a sikaranista before fighting in an open contest.|
|S02E08||Sumbawa Buffalo Racing||02/12/2008||The athletes are in Indonesia, facing the prospect of driving pairs of racing buffalo on a waterlogged drag track while hanging on to a special racing plough. To have any chance of success they need to get their animals to trust them, but bonding sessions with semi-tamed buffalo are not easy.|
|S02E09||India: Kushti Wrestling||09/12/2008||The athletes take on the ancient Indian art of Kushti wrestling - sweaty, hand to hand combat in a concrete sand pit. If they survive intensive training in a Kushti guru's school, they will be rewarded with a chance to take on the local professionals in front of 15,000 fight fans, who have a reputation for cutting up rough if they don't like what they see.|
|S02E10||Outrigger Canoe Race||16/12/2008||In their final challenge, the athletes take part in an ocean-going race between islands off Papua New Guinea. It is two days of paddling outrigger canoes over shark-infested waters against some of the world's greatest canoe experts - the Titans, a tribe of sea nomads who have lived on these waters for centuries.|
