 Jeong Jun Ha's Infinite Challenge


With the huge success of "No-brain Survival", he eventually become an official member of top-rating comic variety programInfinite Challengesince March 2006 and as the second eldest member, he is positioned as "the third-in-command" (3인자), putting him below the host-in-chief Yoo Jae-suk and fellow co-host Park Myung-soo . Soon, he re-created his character as "Super-Fatty" (뚱뚱보), in contrast with the former "Fatty" (뚱보) and his long-time colleague on this programme, Jeong Hyeong-don .

OnInfinite Challenge, he is noticeable for three things: his tall and big stature, his extraordinary appetite, and his degree of slowness in judgment.

One of the program's running gags is his stature, both verbally and physically. He is nicknamed "Daegari" (대가리), the vernacular word for "head", and "the Helmet" (헬멧), due to the extraordinary size (roughly 8 kg) of his head. Despite being the strongest member, which is displayed on some occasions, Jun-ha's timidness makes him an easy target for the other members, especially the ones who younger than him, to use his body for gags. Another nickname for him is "Mount Jun-ha" (준하산), since the member who stands behind him would probably be blocked and unable to hear what Yoo Jae-suk says. The other members thus considered the most-left position of the arrangement as the unluckiest one, since Jun-ha stood between that position and Yoo Jae-suk. Hyung-don joked that "his rights to sunlight were violated" by Jun-ha after staying in that position for about three years until Haha temporarily left the program to fulfill his military service and Jun Jin's addition to the team resulted in a change of arrangement in 2008.

). Before becoming an official member, he participated on the episode of Season 1 (S01E21) as a guest challenger. During that episode, he ate a bowl of hot Garak-guksu within 12 seconds. He earned respect from his challengers. During the 50th episode of season 4, his mission to eat 50 small dishes of Garak-guksu (within 300 seconds) was accomplished. Outside the program, he participated in a hot dog eating competition at Saipan ’s International Food Festival for his own program, Y-Star'sGod of Eating's Road, and took third place in 2013.

His other famous nickname is the "Stupid (Older) Brother" (바보형) or "Not-so-responsive (Older) Brother" (눈치없는 형). The nickname was given because he was famous for his foolish character in "No-Brain Survival" and because of his tactlessness and cluelessness. He often brings the mood down through corny jokes and by pretending to be cute. He has the highest IQ among the cast, as revealed in an episode aired on February 28, 2009 (S04E143). He has an aptitude for working with numbers and calculating sums quickly and correctly, gaining him another nickname in direct contrast with his foolish charisma, "Secretary Jung" (정총무).

Infinite Challenge"Face-Off" episode (S04E317). The two have also won the "Best Couple" award at the 2011 MBC Entertainment Awards, making them the first male-male couple to have ever won the title.

" Alcohol CEO " is also his nickname on this programme, a nickname he gained since he operates a Karaoke - pub in Gangnam-gu , Seoul called "Mong" (몽, 夢, means "Dream" in Korean ). This, combined with the previously mentioned nickname Daegari, led to Yoo Jae-suk nicknaming him "Chivas Daegal" (a reference to Chivas Regal ).

In March 2016, he participated in Show Me the Money 5 - "open hiphop audition TV program". Even though he is not a rapper (but rather a comedian), he participated in the program.
