DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, February 2020) The epic, robot-fighting series BattleBots returns bigger than ever before - with an unprecedented 50 hours of programming on Discovery. Competitors from around the world will face off to prove who is the ultimate robot-building genius when an all-new season of BattleBots returns on Friday, May 15 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. This season, BattleBots will host the largest international field in its 20-year history, as over 80 robots from a dozen countries will attempt to win the sport's most prestigious prize, The Giant Nut. This year's builders will stop at nothing to take down the competition with custom-made weaponry like metal-scorching flamethrowers, hydraulic flippers and spinning blades with speeds reaching more than 200 mph. Fans will also witness never-seen-before technology, such as robots that can walk on legs and new designs to withstand even bigger blows. Last year's World Champion robot "Bite Force" will return to defend its title - competing against innovative newcomers with groundbreaking designs as well as perennial crowd favorites like Tombstone, Witch Doctor, Death Roll, Lock-Jaw and SawBlaze. Each match consists of two remote-controlled robots competing in a single, three-minute round with the goal to destroy or disable their opponent. If there is no knockout during the battle, a panel of judges will declare a victor. But there can only be one ultimate champion in the world of Robot Combat Sports.
