Competition series “Tough As Nails,” hosted by Phil Keoghan and featuring everyday people, has announced the competitors for season two. The series steps in for veteran “Survivor”, which is on a temporary hold due to COVID-19.
From CBS: The 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 “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.
