The search is on! The quest for the one person who can survive a hundred challenges. The goal is not to be the best, because winning is not the issue. Never losing is.

'99 to beat' is a versatile format. Stand-alone or incorporated in a larger programme, be it on a traditional screen or online: the tension is always present.

After a successful remake in The Netherlands the game is now conquering Germany. Several other countries, such as New Zealand, Australia, the United States and Norway, have taken an option on the format.

In the meantime there is also a kids version and a celebrity version.
