CBS ANNOUNCES THE 12 CHALLENGERS COMPETING ON THE SECOND SEASON OF "TOUGH AS NAILS," PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, FEB. 10

"Tough As Nails," Summer's #1 New Reality Series Created and Hosted by Phil Keoghan, Celebrates Everyday Americans Who Get Their Hands Dirty While Working Long, Hard Hours to Keep the Country Running

Competitors Include a Steelworker, Pipe Welder, Travel Nurse, UPS Delivery Driver, Retired Air Force Colonel and More

Competitors Who Lose Their Shot at the Individual "Tough As Nails" Title Stay to Compete for Prizes in the Team Competition

TOUGH AS NAILS, summer's #1 new reality series that celebrates everyday Americans who get their hands dirty while working long, hard hours to keep the country running, returns with 12 new competitors ready to test their strength, endurance, life skills and mental toughness, on the second season premiere, Wednesday, Feb. 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The cast includes a steelworker, pipe welder, travel nurse, UPS delivery driver, retired Air Force colonel who was a combat aviator for the Navy and Air Force, among others. Phil Keoghan is the creator, host and showrunner.

These competitors, who come from different walks of life but all roll up their sleeves every day to make an honest day's living, will compete in challenges that take place at real-world job sites including farms, construction sites, high rise buildings, fishing boats and a Pick-a-Part where they need to build a drivable car. One competitor will be crowned the champion and win the coveted TOUGH AS NAILS belt, but anybody that "punches out" of the individual competition still has the opportunity to win additional cash prizes in the team competition that continues throughout the season.

"TOUGH AS NAILS is a celebration of the hard working men and women who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty to do a hard day's work," said host and showrunner Phil Keoghan. "Over the past year, we have a renewed appreciation of the 'essential workforce' that keep the country running and I'm excited for viewers to meet the new crew members because this is a group of amazing folks who are real people in real life who are real tough!"
