Fifty hours of dancing is very difficult and many of the participants did not come out unscathed. The dancers suffered from cramps, back pain, sprained ankles and were exhausted. Some participants had to be moved on stretchers or in wheelchairs. Presenter Wendy Van Dyck called it “almost kind of offended”.
Participants were allowed to take breaks, but those who wanted to win could not take advantage of it eagerly. The couple who takes the least minutes of rest wins. In the end, Tawatha and Jermaine won. They danced 2,965 minutes, with a 35-minute break.
The idea for the program is taken from the movie Sidney Pollack They shoot horses, right?. The film also shows a dance marathon during the Great Depression in the United States. However, the fantasy marathon ended in a brutal battle of attrition, with two dead.
On the Internet, people call the program “total madness.” Some people even think about the series squid game. Despite all the comments, Talpa positively views the program. The medical team also says the event went “as expected”.
