"100 Hours", a joint production between TVNZ and the Netherlands' IDTV, was a New Zealand television show filmed in Avalon, New Zealand that aired on TV2 on Sunday evenings in 2002. The show was hosted by Evie Ashton.[1] There were around two thousand applicants nationwide for the show.


Four contestants were locked in an underground bunker in a secret location with no timepieces. The contestants were required to have to learn a series of challenges, which included mind, body and dexterity types. They faced off against the others until one of them won and went on to a final. The ultimate prize of the show was a Mini Cooper.
