Tough As Nails Season 2
Tough As Nails Season 2

Tough as Nails is an American Reality Competition show premiered on CBS on July 8, 2020. Phil Keoghan is the host of the show. The show’s plot is to feature contestants competing in challenges at job sites that test their toughness. One Participant is eliminated in each episode of the show. A total of twelve contestants are tested in competitions at real-world job sites with difficult tasks that test their strength, life skills, endurance, and mental toughness. Contestants are divided into 6-on-6 teams, and each team completes the challenge. Individual Competitions and elimination battles are referred to as ‘Overtime.’

Contestants who lose elimination challenges do no lose the game, unlike other reality competitions, and still, have the opportunity to win additional prizes during team competitions. Every team competition provides the winning team $12000 ($2000 for each member) and earns the team that challenges the Badge of Honor. The team which can collect the maximum badge of Honour by the end of the season receives an additional cash bonus of $60000 ($10000 per contestant). If both the teams have the same number of Badges of Honour, they will hold a tiebreaker.

In every episode, all the contestants complete individual challenges to stay running to win the Grand Prize. The lowest performer in every individual challenge gets to work Overtime, with the loser of the overtime challenge eliminated from the individual competition (referred to as Punching Out in the Show). At the end of the show’s season, one contestant is crowned with a Tough and Nail champion and wins the grand prize of $200,000 and a beautiful Ford Super Duty Truck.
