Soldados 1.0' is an exclusive proposal from RCN where a group of celebrities and other ordinary citizens will test their inner warrior by joining the glorious Colombian army. Faced with intense challenges, in which only the disciplined will be victorious, the recruits will put aside their ordinary life and face a strict military regime that will challenge their limits to know if they have what it takes to become soldiers.
The first group of contestants of this reality show will be made up of personalities from the national show business who, apart from the cameras and glamour, will demonstrate what they are made of. Maria Fernanda Yepes will make her hostess debut and Andrea Tovar, Jery Sandoval, Ennis Pacheco, Natalia Duran, Angela Vergara, Juliana Galvis, Lina Tejeiro, Sofia Jaramillo, Norma Nivia, Catalina Otalvaro, Diego Arnary, Juan Sebastián Quintero, Julián Téllez, Alejandro Estrada, Agmeth Escaf, Edward 'Shirrry' Pinzón, Tommy Vásquez, Orlando Liñán, Jonathan Rodríguez and Beto Villa are the 20 contestants who will join this adventure.
Starting each week, the recruits will begin different phases of military training. In these, individual challenges, group tests and social missions will be qualified by army officers and non-commissioned officers, who, in turn, will be their battle instructors. Contestants must demonstrate their skills in extreme activities such as: cyber defense, patrolling, disaster prevention and assistance, parachuting, target shooting, closing order, military inspection, physical testing, camouflage, and survival and engineering. "Soldiers 1.0 is the true story of 20 Colombian celebrities who abandon their comforts to experience the life of a soldier in flesh and blood. It is the untold story of these anonymous heroes who sacrifice themselves day after day for our nation. It is a story of overcoming and transformation, sacrifices and courage. They won't have any privileges, and their motivation goes beyond money, their honor.
Therefore, at the end of each cycle, those who deserve a medal will be chosen and those who will be members of a list: list No. 5 (a military expression referring to those who need to be blamed for any fault). Recruits who reach this list will participate in a final challenge, the "Battle of Honor," where the names of those who remain in the platoon, as well as those who leave, will be known.
The Colombian public will also be very involved in each of the episodes, as there will be a call in different cities, where three men and three women will be elected from each city, the citizens. They show tenacity and courage at the Tolemaida military base, earn a place in the platoon and begin a military formation. The best recruits from each division will be able to take on celebrities in the prestigious Battle of Honour and, if they get one of the top positions, they will be able to take the place of one of the celebrities and be part of the programme.
