Renowned Stunt Performer, YouTube Star & Ringleader of The Dudesons
Last year alone, 4 climbers died trying to climb to the nearly 20,000 ft peak of Mount Tocllaraju in Peru, now in the hit new YouTube RED series “ULTIMATE EXPEDITION,” 8 celebrities with no previous climbing experience including Chuck Liddell (UFC champion), Steve-O (Comedian) & Gus Kenworthy (Olympic silver-medalist) attempt to summit the mountain.
Jukka Hildén has over 4.6 million YouTube subscribers as the ringleader of the internationally renowned team "The Dudesons," who came to America from Finland to share their talents of taking bizarre and awe-inspiring risks with a wider audience. Hildén and his team look to inspire viewers by pushing the boundaries, getting others out of their comfort zone, and encouraging them to face their biggest fears and slay their personal dragons in order to breakthrough their self-imposed barriers to show them that anything is possible.
In “ULTIMATE EXPEDITION,” Mount Tocllaraju is not the only mountain the cast is trying to conquer. Each climber has a personal challenge they are hoping to summit. Some are chasing dreams, some are redefining themselves, and some are looking for a spiritual awakening. They will experience elation, anger, and even a bit of comedy, on their way to finding joy as they work to overcome personal obstacles. This expedition is a rare opportunity to isolate themselves from the daily stress of the modern world - and prove that nothing is impossible. The full cast includes Jukka Hilden, Gus Kenworthy, Chuck Liddell, Steve-O, SSSniperwolf, Furious Pete, Jusreign, Nikki Baker, and Chachi Gonzalez.
