OLN challenges viewers to face the elements this season with exhilarating outdoor action and adventure.
OLN embarks on Canadian quest with Mission: Adventure
OLN’s newest action-packed adventure show, Mission: Adventure, pits two intrepid hosts against one another as they compete head-to-head in outdoor adventures such as street luge, kite buggying, lumber jack challenges and barefoot waterskiing. This 26-episode OLN-produced show, which premiered May 19 and airs every Sunday at 7 p.m. (all times Eastern), explores Canada’s vast wilderness from coast-to-coast, with each show featuring two uniquely Canadian adventures designed by the two fearless hosts. There is a spirited rivalry between hosts Tyler Ty Pullen and Tyler Mac MacLeod as they battle it out with a mission to win. The winner is the host who completes the mission first. The loser must then take to Canada’s streets for Mission: Aftermath to complete a dare created by the winning host.
