Premise: No one is searching for chefs, dancers, singers or models in this competition series, just model citizens who might change the future. Finding the best innovator among 10 highly intelligent contestants is the goal, and the elimination process begins immediately. In the first episode, the contestants -- who range in age from 25 to 49 -- are challenged to develop a solution to stop explosives from detonating, and they have just 30 minutes to do so. The two competitors judged to have the best plans become captains and choose a team, and the team that successfully completes each episode's challenge is safe, while one member from the losing team is eliminated. Other challenges this season include building a portable bunker that can be deployed in five minutes, and constructing a robot capable of competing in three different athletic events. The overall winner receives $50,000, among other perks.
