DESCRIPTION:
(from CMT's press release, December 2014) There's no easy day at the "Broken Skull" ranch. Steve Austin returns with his trademark tough love for a second season of STEVE AUSTIN'S BROKEN SKULL CHALLENGE, premiering Sunday, January 4 at 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT. The toughest competition series on TV, each week men and women from across the country battle it out in physically and mentally grueling challenges until only one is left standing. That person earns the chance to win $10,000 by beating the new and improved Skullbuster, a harrowing obstacle course designed by Austin himself. Even the strongest athletes fall victim to the Skullbuster, as the course breaks down competitors, body-part by body-part. Each episode of BROKEN SKULL CHALLENGE involves a series of gritty physical challenges, as some of the most elite athletes in America compete head-to-head for the win. Contestants includes highly-trained body builders; Jiu Jitsu and MMA fighters; arena football, rugby and CrossFit athletes, along with every day men and women. Season one winner Tommy Hackenbruck also returns as the reigning champ, to see if any of the new recruits have what it takes to beat his benchmark Skullbuster time. If the final competitor fails to beat the existing benchmark, Hackenbruck will continue to amass winnings.
