I am not sure what a “Family History-Based Reality Competition Program” is but BYUtv apparently has one. The following announcement was written by BYUtv:
PROVO, Utah, Feb. 17, 2016 — In an expansion of its innovative programming and unique series lineup, BYUtv will debut its all-new original, unscripted competition reality show, Relative Race, on Sunday, February 28 at 8pm ET/6pm MT. Relative Race follows four married couples on a 10-day journey across the country as they complete challenges, meet unknown relatives traced through DNA and compete for a $25,000 grand prize. Driven by the science and technology of AncestryDNA, the reality series takes viewers alongside the teams as they test their emotional and physical endurance while simultaneously discovering more about themselves and establishing connections with family they didn’t know they had.
Armed with only paper maps, rental cars, burner flip phones and a $25 per diem, the couples receive instructions via text message to complete challenges that lead them to their long lost relatives. The last team to finish each day receives a strike, and after three strikes, teams are eliminated. Relative Race will culminate in a dramatic finale, as all remaining couples race 4,500 miles from San Francisco to the finish in New York City.
