"REDNECK ISLAND" SET TO RETURN TO CMT FOR AN ALL-NEW SEASON ON JUNE 5

The Ultimate Redneck-Style Competition Series to Premiere at 10:30 p.m., ET/PT, Following the 2013 CMT MUSIC AWARDS

NASHVILLE - May 16, 2013 - Wrestling hall of famer Steve Austin is back for a rowdier-than-ever third season of REDNECK ISLAND, premiering Wednesday, June 5 at 10:30-11:30 p.m., ET/PT, immediately following the 2013 CMT MUSIC AWARDS. Set in a remote tropical paradise, REDNECK ISLAND will pit 15 contestants - completely out of their element - against one another in CMT's ultimate redneck-style competition series for a shot at $100,000. This season, romantic alliances form early among the castaways, and one surprise dismissal will keep the rednecks "politicking" throughout the 15 beer-packed episodes.

The second episode of REDNECK ISLAND will premiere in its regularly scheduled timeslot Saturday, June 8 at 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT.

REDNECK ISLAND season three contestants, which were revealed on the series' official Facebook page earlier this week, include:

· Brandon Keys (Ellisville, Miss.) - Brandon is a 27-year-old mechanic who grew up in the country and loves to hunt, fish and drink beer.

· Cody Hodge (Brooksville, Ala.) - If 23-year-old construction worker Cody wins the competition, he will buy the largest double-wide trailer that money can buy.

· Daniel "Jo" Floyd (Theodore, Ala.) - Jo is a 24-year-old coil pressure washer who is looking for a good time and not another relationship.

· Mike Mace (Rocky Mountain, N.C.) - Mike is a 26-year-old exterminator who can fix anything with a roll of duct tape.

· Phillip Honea (Pendleton, S.C.) - Since the age of nine, 30-year-old Phillip has been riding bulls, building tree houses and shooting guns. He currently works as an electrician.

· Shane Tucker (Smith Lake, Ala.) - Shane is a 42-year-old used car salesman. He loves playing beer pong and considers himself to be an exceptional dancer.

· Travis Davis (Manchester, Ky.) - An avid guitar-player and NASCAR-watcher, 31-year-old Travis is a mechanic who also loves turtle hunting and tailgating.

· Amnesty Sundstrom (Haymarket, Va.) - Amnesty is a 21-year-old bartender that loves riding horses, drinking beer and dancing at bars.

· Bayly Risen (Brandenburg, Ky.) - Bayly is a 22-year-old retail banker who loves putting on her camouflage overalls and heading to the horse stables.

· Brittany Martin (Argo, Ala.) - Brittany is always up for some cow tipping, drinking, fishing and hunting. She is a 23-year-old bartender.

· Brittany Woodle (Bennettsville, S.C.) - Brittany is a 25-year-old waitress who loves being the center of attention.

· Candice Orso (Creola, Ala.) - Candice is a southern girl who isn't afraid to get dirty. This 24-year-old waitress loves the race track and going hunting.

· Lindsey Donohoe (Bipley, W.V.) - Lindsey is a 29-yaer-old juvenile delinquent manager. She raises rabbits for food and owns two potbelly pigs as pets.

· Misty Gordon (Dublin, Ga.) - Misty considers herself more of a Georgia Rebel than a Georgia Peach. This 22-year-old works as both a bartender and a golf cart girl.

· Stacey Schuler (Shepherdsville, Ky.) - Stacey, a 26-year-old recovery specialist, isn't into pink and says she can outhunt and outdrink any man.
