German Film crew in San Pedro

Residents would certainly have noticed a group of guys with video cameras and production equipment making their way through the streets of San Pedro on the 24th and 25th of May. They were a film crew from a German digital production company, Endemol, here on the island filming an episode of a new prime time reality series called "Joko gegen Klaas - Das Duell um die Welt" exclusively for German television network ProSeiben (Pro7). In English the show is called "Joko vs. Klaas - The Battle for the World", and is a reality show that pins its two stars against one another in a series of challenges all over the globe. Hosts Joachim 'Joko' Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf give each other a series of outrageous and tough challenges in countries all over the world; they know where they're going but have no idea what they will have to do until they get there. It is a travel game show and reality series where each host tries to push the other to their limits in an attempt to be crowned the "world champion" by taking on all the obstacles and coming out on top as the one who has won the battle for world domination. It is a high stakes truth or dare without the truth but a whole lot of dare!

Shooting began at the John Greif Airstrip and Tropic Air Terminal in San Pedro where The San Pedro Sun caught up with them filming the arrival of Joko in Belize. It was Joko's turn to be challenged and Klaas sent him to Belize to find out what he had to do. The San Pedro Sun spent the day behind the scenes with the production team accompanying them around town as they took on the challenge, which included a surprise cameo of one of islands most famous faces� Coconut Leo! Joko arrived and to his surprise and bewilderment was handed a piece of paper with a picture of Leo and the single phrase "Suche diesen Mann!"� "Find this man!" which sent Joko on a crazy adventure all around town trying to figure out who this person is and how to find him. Joko spent hours around town searching and talking to unsuspecting bystanders trying to find where Coconut Leo lives. When he finally found Leo's home, Joko asked Leo to show him what he needed to do for his challenge. Leo then took Joko to show him what he does best� climb super tall coconut trees!

Last week Island residents were surprised to see the erection of the greasy pole at Central Park and wondered what was going on an ordinary Friday. Ambergris Today met up with Hon. Manuel Heredia, Mayor Daniel Guerrero and his councilors at Central Park as they greeted a group of men from Germany.

We learnt that the group was a filming crew from the digital production company, Endemol from Germany, is the largest independent television and digital production company in the world.

The thrill of the greasy pole documented on film

The Greasy Pole

Rice and beans, chicken and salad for dinner on Sunday is a typical Belizean tradition. And in the realm of entertainment, the good old greasy pole has to stand out as one of the top attractions. In fact, the climbing of the greasy pole has captured the imagination of a television program all the way from Germany. They were in San Pedro recently to check out the spectacle, and Love TV's Maria Novelo was among the spectators.
