There’s a brand new series on Netflix this March 2020 which seeks to put human behaviour and nature to the test. In a series of experiments, 100 Humans covers everything from how attractiveness can help you in life, how much pain we can really withstand, and more burning questions that the presenters come up with.

The three presenters on the series are Alie Ward, Sammy Obeid, and Zainab Johnson.

Despite the fact that all three presenters on 100 Humans have a science background, it’s clear that Alie Ward is the lead.

So, who is Alie Ward? Find out about the 100 Humans presenter and science correspondent here.
