Plot Synopsis

Reality star 'Boston Rob' Mariano and monster-truck builder Dennis Anderson attempt to travel the globe using 80 different modes of transportation, using each type of vehicle only once. Using buggies and blimps, ships and segways, and canoes and camels, the two hosts must get from point A to point B, using transportation that is indigenous to the region as often as possible. On their journey, they usually work together -- sometimes even building their own vehicles -- but other times they'll race each other to the finish. As a team, 'Boston Rob' uses his challenge, adventure and racing skills that he showcased on SURVIVOR and THE AMAZING RACE, while Dennis, the creator of the monster truck Gravedigger, brings expertise in vehicles, engineering and construction.
