Rithvik Dhanjani, Host of Man VS Job says, "It’s going to be a great challenge for me. I have never done any of these things and I know it’s not going to be easy. It’s a show that's definitely going to change my view on life and help me grow as a person. Sometimes we take the smallest things in life for granted and I wonder how difficult it must be for these people who are doing these jobs as for them every day has a new challenge – one of survival, life, that day’s dinner, etc. which is so very different from the challenges I face in my life as an actor and entertainer. And for me to do these different challenging jobs back to back is going to be a learning curve"
