How to Win at Everything explores human physiology and psychology, physics, technology and mathematics to show how people can ‘win’ in any scenario. Each episode reveals how and why certain tricks or cheats work when they’re put to the test by experts and a pair of identical twins in everyday scenarios.

Identical twins Chris and Justin Nelson join host Tim Shaw in this step-by-step guide to successful living. The twins go head to head, testing competing scientific theories in scenarios such as whether it is faster to smash through a locked door in an emergency with your foot or a crowbar; or whether the principles of attracting female attention favour men who dance or men who wear red; and whether eating spicy food or dipping your clothes in tepid water is the best way to stay cool in the heat.
