We think this TV show stands out for:

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Fun competition produced to raise money for COVID-19 research and medical support. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

There are more male than female athletes represented; some are Black and Latinx. The athletes are competitive but don't take it all too seriously, are good sports about the whole thing.   

Violence

Some smack talk, but it's meant to be more funny than threatening. 

Sex

Some mild innuendo, most of which will fly over the heads of young kids (and at times some adults). One event features athletes taking layers of clothes off and throwing them in laundry baskets, but there's nothing sexual about it. 

Language

Curses like "damn," "a--hole," "s--t," and "f--k" are bleeped with mouths blurred. 

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that UHC: Ultimate Home Championship is a YouTube streaming sporting event produced by Steph Curry to raise money for the United Nations Foundation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. The participating athletes, who compete from their own homes, are competitive but approach it with lots of humor. There's some funny trash talk, some bleeped cursing (mouths are blurred), and some mild innuendo, some of which will go over kids' heads, but the overall competition is lighthearted and entertaining.

What's the story?

Hosted by Steph Curry, UHC: ULTIMATE HOME CHAMPIONSHIP is a YouTube streaming sports event to raise money for the United Nations Foundation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Seven fiercely competitive athletes, including NBA All-Star DeAndre Jordan, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, MMA Fighter Ronda Rousey, 2Hype member Kristopher London, ski champion Lindsey Vonn, boxer Ryan García, and F2 freestylers Jeremy Lynch and Billy Wingrove compete in four events designed to test their athletic and domestic capabilities from the comfort of their own homes. Each player earns points based on where they place in each competition. The two with the highest scores after the third event face off in the final showdown for the chance to win the Homey Trophy and the title of World's Greatest Stay-At-Home Athlete. Throughout it all, ESPN's Katie Nolan and eSports gamer Richard Tyler Blevins, aka Ninja, offer play-by-play commentary, while comedian Ego Nwodim reports from the sidelines while simultaneously standing somewhere inside her place of residence.

Is it any good?

This hilarious event offers a chance to watch some unique competitive sports action during the COVID-19-motivated shutdown of professional sports. From the "Rubbish Relay" and "Hamper Stripdown," to the "Homestead High Jump" and the final "Marathon of Madness," cameras capture each player at home giving it their all while having fun and making jokes in the process. Seeing their reactions while they watch their challengers in action via cell phone also adds to the comedy. 

Those more familiar with the athletes will understand the context of some of their antics. But you don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy what transpires throughout the competition, or to laugh out loud at the energetic and witty play-by-play. Overall, UHC: Ultimate Home Championship offers a much needed opportunity to laugh while raising money for a vital cause. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the different ways public figures use media to help support charities and other important causes. UHC: Ultimate Home Championship is a fundraiser, but in what other ways is it supporting COVID-19 researchers and workers? 

  • How competitive are the athletes throughout this competition? Do they take themselves seriously? How will their performance in these events impact their reputations?
