Viper Challenge


Celebrities To Add More Excitement To Asia's Biggest Ever Obstacle Challenge

Organizers invite all to attend the Viper Challenge as TV host Jonathan Putra and comedians Kavin Jay and Papi Zak promise to bring entertainment, motivation and comedic relief.

Sepang, August 2: Now just two weeks away, the excitement is heating up for Asia's biggest ever fitness challenge as organisers of the Viper Challenge on 17 & 18 August at Sepang International Circuit announce the participation of three hot local entertainment personalities.

Former Channel [V] VJ and current NTV7 TV host Jonathan Putra, along with top Kuala Lumpur funny men Kavin Jay and Papi Zak are set to join the excitement on 17 August as they not only entertain and keep participant energy levels up, but also try their hand at the obstacle course.

The 20km man-made obstacle course meanders around the F1 circuit and presents 20 different obstacles that will require teamwork and test the physical and mental limits of participants - certainly no easy feat for these celebrities!

The multi-talented Jonathan Putra is also an actor and a model and has been a regular feature in the regional and local entertainment scene. The dashing UK born celebrity has always played close attention to his fitness but can he take on his most grueling fitness challenge yet in the Viper Challenge?

Affectionately known as the grumpiest comedian in Malaysia, Kavin Jay performs regularly alongside established international comedians on the local and Singapore comedy circuit. Admittedly not in the best physical shape, but determined to give it his all, Kavin is attempting to condition himself for the Viper Challenge, and it will be interesting to see how this ‘grumpy joke-telling machine’ experiences being inside the course.

Egypt-born Papi Zak brings a no-holds barred attitude to his comedy and enjoyed great success alongside some of Malaysia’s biggest comedians, Harith Iskander, Jit Murad and Douglas Lim, in Actor’s Studio’s 2007 hit ‘Eh, Got Free Ticket Ah?’ before his own headlining performance ‘I am Papi!’ in 2009. As one of the ‘biggest’ stand-up comedians in Malaysia, the Viper Challenge is sure to be a truly entertaining test of Papi’s character.

All three celebrities will be on-ground during the Viper Challenge on Saturday as they entertain, motivate and get both themselves and other participants pumped up for the physical tests of their lives.

With so much excitement happening inside the Viper Challenge arena, this historic Asian sporting event is set to be a hugely memorable hit with all those who attend.

An exciting participant mix from Malaysia and around Asia has already signed up for the thrilling event.

This truly international and landmark Malaysian sporting event is supported by Malaysia Major Events, a division of Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.
