Man V Expert Premieres This April on Discovery Channel
This month, Discovery Channel is finding out if it is ever possible to shortcut your way to the top. Each week, professional hustler Alexis Conran takes on three intense challenges against world class prodigies and experts to see if he can find a way to beat them at their own game – without going through years of hard work and training. MAN V EXPERT airs on Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m., beginning April 22 on Discovery Channel.
In MAN V EXPERT, Alexis endeavors to best a world champion angler, race a Slovakian rowing powerhouse, out-remember a memory champion, and win against England’s best-ever penalty taker. Alexis is also competing in a cook-off with a Michelin-starred chef, and attempts escaping an expert tracker, amongst others.
In any normal head-to-head contest, Alexis would not stand a chance—but he travels the world to look into science and technology, and will occasionally call on his con know-how in an attempt to come out on top. Driven by his ultra-competitive nature and desire to win at all costs, Alexis does not give up until he thinks he has a way to be victorious. He then shares the techniques and tricks used in his attempt to beat the expert.
MAN V EXPERT’s first episode encores on Thursday, April 23 at 2:00 p.m., and on Monday, April 27 at 7:00 a.m.
