The Summit sees a group of 14 strangers become a team and climb up the rugged alps of New Zealand’s South Island. Each contestant is carrying an equal share of one million dollars. If this group wants to keep the money, they have to reach the summit of a formidable mountain in a mere 15 days. If someone is going too slow, the group can choose to eliminate them.

In 2023, Brooke, Lulu, and Isaac were winners of The Summit’s challenge. These three contestants split a whopping $490,000.

Will the 2024 season of The Summit bring such a bounty to its contestants? Or will they fail to reach such heights? Here’s everything that we know.
