Review

Comedy aside (and it is funny), presumably this series aims to expose how soft we are in the West. This week, likeable "hipster gym bunny" Joel Dommett joins a Maasai tribe in Kenya. The thing is, he throws himself into every activity so cheerfully that he makes it all look a bit of a laugh. He's like the anti-Karl Pilkington.

Despite getting whipped (literally) at stick fighting, he's clearly doing too well with the men's work. So they get him helping the women – cladding huts with cow dung and carrying water pots on their heads for miles. “There's nothing a man does to help a woman make a house," says their guide.

Summary

Joel Dommett and Nish Kumar meet some of the fittest people in the world, taking on various physical challenges and exploring their lifestyles.
