Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ultimate Expedition is a YouTube Red series featuring athletes, comedians, online celebs, and other personalities challenging themselves to climb a mountain in the Peruvian Andes with The Dudesons' Jukka Hilden. Working hard, facing fears, and teamwork are major themes, and things like coming out, surviving cancer, racism, and sexism are sometimes discussed. Safety is prioritized, but there's the occasional dumb gag when they're not climbing. There's some cursing and crude sexual references, and folks get sick due to altitude sickness and show off bloody blisters and other injuries.
Is It Any Good?
This entertaining series features novice climbers with some celebrity fame facing their fears and fighting the elements to reach a common goal. It shows how they cope with the day-to-day challenges that come with a climb of this magnitude. The climbers also use individual cameras to discuss their reasons for being there, as well as their thoughts, hopes, and fears. Throughout it all, they also work hard to support each other.
Jukka Hilden, now older and somewhat more mature since his days on The Dudesons television series, makes safety a priority, and struggles through the climb like everyone else. But, along with Steve-O, he manages the occasional dumb stunt, including laughing over bottles filled with urine and drinking from a toilet. Nonetheless, Ultimate Expedition is a positive series that shows people working hard to challenge themselves in a positive way.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
