TV show description:
From executive producers Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan, Lee Metzger, LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Jamal Henderson, and Philip Byron, the Million Dollar Mile TV show is a high-stakes obstacle course competitive reality series. NFL vet Tim Tebow hosts the program, with LA Chargers play-by-play announcer Matt “Money” Smith and ESPN reporter Maria Taylor serving up color commentary.
Each time the contestants run the “Million Dollar Mile,” they have a chance to win $1,000,000. Their biggest obstacle is “The Defenders” — an international team of top-ranked athletes who have earned titles in competitions including the Kona Ironman World Championships, Tough Mudder X, CrossFit Games, and Spartan World Championships. They have but one mission — to stop the contestants from finishing the race and winning the prize.
Episode #10 — I Was Born Ready for This
A Harlem Globetrotter attempts to run circles around her opponent; the undefeated “Harvard Hammer” faces two runners in the same night.
First aired: August 3, 2019.
