"Around the World in 80 Ways" is a reality series on History Channel.

Why take any old car when you can get where you're going by rickshaw or hovercraft? For two real-life adrenaline junkies charged with circumnavigating the globe using every conceivable mode of transportation, it's not the destination that counts, but the journey itself. That's the challenge for hosts Boston Rob Mariano ("Survivor," "The Amazing Race") and Dennis Anderson (creator of the monster truck Gravedigger).

Whether rushing down Victoria Falls in a barrel, hang gliding over Rio, or crossing the Kalahari by ostrich, Rob and Dennis have to employ 80 different forms of transportation without repeating any vehicle. It's an extreme expedition that will take the hosts not only across the miles, but through time as they explore the history behind the many ways people have gotten around throughout the ages.

This adventure takes Rob and Dennis through Brazil, Peru, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, Dubai, India, Thailand, and the United States. Sometimes they must join forces, while at other times they work against each other. At times they even have to invent and build their own means of transport.

But these macho men are both accustomed to being champions and have been known to torment, boast, and battle their way to the top. Although "Around the World in 80 Ways" is not a competition, these two can't resist turning everything into a good-natured dare of their own. In their playbook, nothing is off limits when humiliating consequences await the loser.

"Around the World in 80 Ways" is produced for History by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company. Thom Beers and Philip D. Segal are Executive Producers and Jeff Conroy is Co-Executive Producer for Original Productions. Dirk Hoogstra and Julian P. Hobbs are Executive Producers for History.
