TY MURRAY'S CELEBRITY BULL RIDING CHALLENGE - SEASON PREMIERE!
Nine celebrities learn that the cutthroat world of Hollywood is nothing compared to the real life thrills of professional bull riding in the six-episode series, TY MURRAY'S CELEBRITY BULL RIDING CHALLENGE. In the one-hour series debut, the celebrities arrive in Stephenville, Texas and meet Ty for the first time. As if meeting the All-Around World Champion wasn't enough for one day, Ty invites Justin McBride, 2005 Professional Bull Riding Champion, to the ranch to show the celebrities how bull riding is done. After watching McBride, the celebrities get a frightening up-close look at bull riding and realize that it may be a little harder than it looks on TV. After the first day of training, the celebrities get a true feel for what they have gotten themselves into and one star realizes he's bitten off more than he can chew.
