Open to teams of three current university students, Can You Make It? invites interested Filipino participants to create a minute-long video explaining why they should be chosen to represent their country while showing their love for adventure and their smarts – a few of the more important attributes that make a winning Can You Make It? team.

Entries should be uploaded to no later than February 14, 2016. Then teams are encouraged to gather as much social media support during the online voting period to make it as finalists. Among them, a panel of judges is set to pick winning teams that will represent their countries and will get a chance to begin their one-of-a-kind, week-long adventure this April 2016 at one of five starting points in Europe: Barcelona, Florence, Berlin, Edinburgh, and Prague.

During its first season in 2014, Can You Make It? had among its roster the Philippines’ own Beasts of the Southeast made up of Dave Agbayani, Red Calayan, and R-jay Esposo from the University of the Philippines. They began their journey in Schwechat, Austria and traded Red Bull cans through Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, until their final stop with the rest of the international teams in Munich, Germany.

“We were really good friends before [the competition]. But [it] strengthened our friendship even more. We had one major fight during Can You Make It?, and that was it. We learned from it and in a way, realized that there were still things that we didn’t know about each other,” Agbayani shared.

This 2016, you and your friends stand a chance to fly a continent away from home in a Red Bull-driven adventure – made up of Checkpoint Challenges, Adventure List tasks, and Social Following achievements – that is sure to bring you closer together.
