TV show description:
This physical competition series stars WWE Superstar John Cena.
On the show, 16 of the country’s toughest men and women are split into four teams as they work together to face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges. Cena and an elite group of mentors from the nation’s most exclusive military units push these civilians beyond their limits.
The mentors, who represent diverse backgrounds and top branches of the US Armed Forces, are known as “The Cadre”. They include Rorke Denver, Noah Galloway, Tawanda “Tee” Hanible and Nick “The Reaper” Irving. These real-life heroes impart their first-hand knowledge and experience to help the competitors work together as teams to surmount near impossible mental and physical challenges.
Only the first team to complete the challenges together is safe from elimination. Each episode culminates in “The Circus” — a punishing, endurance-based obstacle course that’s designed to break the weakest competitors.
With up to $1,000,000 of prize money at stake for the winning team, this is a serious test of strength, grit, human spirit and, most importantly, teamwork.
