Is it ever possible to shortcut your way to the top? Let's find out in Man v Expert. Each week, hustler Alexis Conran takes on three intense challenges, against world-class experts, to see if he can find a way to beat them at their own game - without going through years of hard work and training. In any normal head-to-head contest, Alexis wouldn’t stand a chance, but he travels the world to look into science and technology, and occasionally calls on his trickster know-how in an attempt to come out on top. During the series, Alexis sees a childhood dream come to fruition when he feels the pressure of a penalty shootout against the Premier League’s greatest-ever penalty taker, Matt Le Tissier. He also hops behind the wheel in his hometown, challenging London’ s legendary black cab drivers and their knowledge of the city to a race across the capital, and attempts to row his way to victory in a one-on-one kayak race against a five-time European and 11-time Slovakian champion. Alexis is driven by his ultra-competitive nature, and desire to win at all costs. But with his challenger none the wiser to Alexis’s tricks, and no guarantee of success when it comes to con artistry and illusions, it’s a true toss-up as to who will win: man, or expert?

How well do you know your city? Well enough to beat a local taxi driver in a race across town? In this episode, Alexis hops behind the wheel in London, and challenges its legendary black cab drivers and their knowledge of the city to a race across the capital. Then, with the odds stacked against him in unknown territory, he attempts to out-smart a professional tracker and his team of sniffer dogs in America’s Blue Ridge Mountain Range. Once this ultimate evasion challenge is over, Alexis needs to win against a grandmaster of memory. But who will come out on top - man or expert?
