Tim Fitzhigham meets the humans who defy science and puts their powers to the test - against himself. Tim meets Eskil Ronningsbakken - a man who has cycled along a tightrope over a 1km drop, performed a one-handed handstand on an ice cube over a waterfall and balanced on a ladder at the edge of a 550 metre cliff. But do these amazing balancing stunts make him a real-life Daredevil?

Tim challenges Eskil to three super tests in order to prove, or disprove, these death-defying superhuman powers. Can Tim and Eskil balance on the edge of the Grand Canyon in the USA, on a chair while doing a handstand? This is exactly as dangerous as it sounds, so Tim uses state-of-the-art technology, real medical science and his very own mission doctor as he prepares for his challenges.

Is Eskil Ronningsbakken a real-life Daredevil? Be prepared to be amazed by Super Human Challenge!
