Plot Synopsis

With up to one million dollars at stake, nine people live together in a Panamanian penthouse and complete various missions that test their brains, their brawn and even their morality. Competitors will be challenged to prove they have what it takes to be heroes, by pushing them to the limits to see what they are willing (and able) to overcome, undergo and sacrifice for the sake of their fellow contestants or for themselves. In the end, one player rises above the others, overcoming obstacles he/she never thought possible in order to become a true hero. Each 60-minute episode, players compete together in a Team Challenge, fend for themselves in a Hero Challenge, and face each other in the War Room. Through the show's interactive digital platform, viewers vote each week for the contestant they consider to be the most heroic.
