    So what sort of show is this anyway?

  • Rachel

    The show poses the question: “What if you had 72 hours and the opportunity to do your dream?”

    “Phil cleared personal calendars, ironed out excuses, and ambushed selected applicants. He then challenged them to take up the NOW dare: The opportunity and 72 hours to do their dream. That was it – and the chance to put down that remote, get off the couch, rally others and make it happen. Phil empowered each person: “imagination is your currency”. Those who took up the challenge included Singing Nuns, Navy Seals, a Jewish Rapper, a Roller King, college students, an aerial artist, a nude model, a mailman … in 3 days they attempted to achieve extraordinary things … overcome fear of sharks, produce a burlesque show, build a boat and sail it through treacherous waters, ride a bull in a pro rodeo, become a pro wrestler, get a break as a New York DJ … every challenge was unique.

    For those who embarked on their dream, was it everything they expected? At the end of the 72 hours was their dream a reality or were they left in the gutter looking at the stars”
