A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
A simple game of tag can be a lot of fun, and can win you a lot of money.
Positive Role Models
The hosts are lighthearted, but some taggers enjoy boasting. The athletes are disciplined.
Violence & Scariness
No one is tackled, but the chases can be tough, and taggers grab at the players. The obstacle courses require lots of jumping, swinging, speed, etc. People sometimes slip or fall from high places, but no one gets hurt. There’s some smack talking between players and taggers, including statements about “not wanting to kill them.”

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ultimate Tag is a game show competition that features adults playing rounds of tag on larger-than-life obstacle courses for a cash prize. The obstacle courses are referred to as "hell," and there's some tough talking between the taggers and the players, but not much to worry about. Contestants sometimes slip and fall, but safety gear is used, and no one gets hurt. Tight athletic gear is worn, and people sometimes show some skin.
Is It Any Good?
This lively series features physically fit men and women getting chased by other physically fit men and women for a chance to win some cash. To add excitement to the show's straightforward formula, each round of the game ups the ante by featuring bigger and more difficult obstacle courses. Meanwhile, the taggers, who boast superhero-like names like "Atomic Ant" and "Rocket" (and on occasion some WWE-style tough talk), chase the players with impressive speed and agility. It's not the most creative of contests, but Ultimate Tag, much like the playground game, still manages to be fun.
Did we miss something on diversity?
