Episode 3 of the Amazon Jungle Challenge!

In this episode Caspar and I get wrecked while kayaking in a flooded forest, we catch some piraña, and paint our hands blue.

Check out the first epidodes if you haven't already. We wake up from our first night sleeping in our jungle shelter. Cas and I put some extra time in the night before making it extra special for the judges before discovering the winner at breakfast. Here, we also find out that today's challenge is the "indigenous olympics" with spear throwing, boat racing, blow dart shooting, and other local sports. Part of the entry fee of the challenge goes to supporting some of these remote local communities we visit. We delivered over 100 backpacks with school supplies to kids in the Tikuna Village. They were stoaked :)

And some background of what this series is about.
A couple months ago, my friend and filmmaker buddy Caspar Diederik and I decided to take on a crazy challenge together.

We had finished a giant project in Germany together a few years ago, and never took that trip to celebrate the accomplishment. We decided to try something a little bit different, and sign up for a Adventure Challenge through the Amazon Rain Forest. 5 teams competed against each other for a week in the heart of the jungle. Swimming, Paddling, Hiking, Eating, every day was a new challenge. At the end, there was a winner.

The company who ran this challenge is called Large Minority. They have a several amazing race style trips around the world. The Lanka Challenge in Sri Lanka, which teams race in Tuk Tuks around the country. The Cambo Challenge, which is a similar race around Cambodia, the Philippines Challenge, which is sailing, and the new addition was the Amazon Challenge.

It was a wild experience. Like I said at the end of the video. I thrive off adventures like this. Leaping out of your comfort zone, into the mud, allows you to come back home a better, more bullet proof version of yourself.

Did we win? Did we lose? Stay tuuuuuuuuned!

Large Minority creates adventure challenges around the world. Philippines, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and now the Amazon. This was one of the most immersive organized experiences I've had. We were deep in the jungle and I loved every minute of it. Take a peek at their races here: https://www.largeminority.travel/
