The series delivers a weekly dose of testosterone-driven content to men seeking a hefty helping of adventure.

Now in its seventh season, the show has moved from original broadcaster SABC3 to M-Net and returns with 10 all-new, adrenaline-fuelled episodes.

Bringing their testosterone to the table are returning presenters Siv Ngesi, comedian Jason Goliath and radio jock-come petrol-head DJ Warras.

Joining the team this season is presenter Jonathan Boynton-Lee.

The series – offering insights into the multiple facets of the modern-day man – features a line-up of competitive challenges, adventures, casual conversations, engagements with local heroes and sporting stars, bucket-list adventures, supercars and classic rides.

Exclusive to this season, the guys actively address issues that plague today's society, explore South Africa and its people, discover the mythical bond between man and machine and host casual, non-scripted conversations with top local personalities.

How did they conceal their crimes for almost 20 years, and what gave them away?

In the second episode of the weekly triple bill, "BTK": A loner and a misfit, Dennis Rader was not a stereotypical serial killer.

He called himself BTK in honour of his murder method - bind, torture, kill.
