Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Kal Penn, SUPERHUMAN is a one-hour unscripted competition series that tests the abilities of ordinary people to use their extraordinary skills -- in fields such as memory, hearing, taste, touch, smell and sight. Each week, five contestants who possess superhuman skills compete for a grand prize of $50,000. Skills range from hearing musical notes through colors, completing mind-bending mathematical equations without the help of a pen and paper, and remembering every turn of a maze from memory. Penn, along with panelists Mike Tyson, Dr. Rahul Jandial, and Christina Milian, provide insights and comedic commentary about the competitors' unique abilities. In the end, the studio audience decides which contestant takes home the $50,000 grand prize. SUPERHUMAN first debuted as a two-hour special on Monday, January 4, 2016 from 8-10pm ET/PT, with Penn, Tyson and Jandial joined by panelist Mary Lynn Rajskub, who commented on 12 ordinary people using their extraordinary skills to win a $100,000 grand prize.
On Monday, July 31, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the season finale of SUPERHUMAN. In the season ender, "Genius Knows No Boundaries," five new contestants demonstrate their extraordinary talents on the SUPERHUMAN stage. With the $50,000 grand prize on the line, the judges have another tough decision to make.
