Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl, two friends from Jackson, are part of the trek around the world with the mission of being the first to arrive at secret location, unraveling clues along the way to a possible $1 million prize.

The teams are comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another.

At every destination, each team competes in a series of challenges — some mental and some physical — and when the tasks have been completed, they learn their next destination.
