American Grit is an upcoming reality series that will premiere on Fox in 2016. Sixteen of the country's toughest men and women will be split into four teams as they work together to face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges. Cena and an elite group of mentors from the nation's most exclusive military units will push these civilians beyond their limits. The mentors, known as "The Cadre", include Rorke Denver, Noah Galloway, Tawanda "Tee" Hanible and Nick "The Reaper" Irving. These real-life heroes, who represent diverse backgrounds and top branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, will impart their first-hand knowledge and experience to help the competitors work together as teams to surmount near impossible mental and physical challenges. American Grit embodies the military ethos "no man left behind," because only the first team to complete the challenges together is safe from elimination. Each episode will culminate in "The Circus," a punishing, endurance-based obstacle course designed to break the weakest competitors. With up to a million dollars of prize money at stake, this is the ultimate test of strength, grit, the human spirit and most importantly, teamwork. The series is produced by Leftfield Pictures.The series will star WWE Superstar John Cena. Fox have ordered 10 episodes.
WWE Superstar John Cena informs the remaining contestants that they will need to be mentally and physically prepared to dive right into their next mission at any point, because the next evolution will not be scheduled. Additionally, this will mark the first time that the cadre leaders will not be allowed to accompany their teams during the first half of their evolution, after the competitors are led to a secret location and challenged to navigate through a series of check points, while carrying a heavy case and weighted backpack. With an interesting balance of teams left in the game, only one team will outshine the rest during the evolution and be safe from facing "The Circus". Up to a million dollars of prize money is at stake, and these competitors will work together with only two options: to persevere and win or give up, "ring out" and go home.
WWE Superstar John Cena informs the teams of their next challenge, during which they must barricade their shelters and then retrieve their flags from an opposing team's bunker. In this round of evolution, the winner is not only safe from "The Circus," but also gets a visit from a family member, in what proves to be a very special and surprise reunion. With up to a million dollars of prize money at stake, these competitors will work together with only two options: to persevere and win or give up, "ring out" and go home.
WWE Superstar John Cena informs the teams of their next challenge, during which they will complete four grueling obstacles, collecting a tire at the end of each completed course. The winner of this evolution round is not only safe from "The Circus" but also secures a spot in the final competition.
Then, the remaining contestants will only have 30 minutes to mentally and physically prepare for the final evolution challenge of the season, when the teams must suspend upside-down above a waterfall and individually make it across a wire, hand-by-hand for the fastest average score. The winning team will earn an advantage as they enter the final circus, which will be the ultimate test of perseverance. Not only will "The Circus" be a more challenging course, but they will also have to run the course twice. The contestants will only have two options: to persevere and win up to one million dollars or give up, "ring out" and go home.
WWE® Superstar John Cena™, along with a brand-new group of mentors – Infantry Drill Sergeant with the U.S Army John Burk, a U.S. Marine Riki Long, an Ammunition Technician with the U.S. Marines Chloe Mondesir and Green Beret Grady Powell – welcome 17 competitors, who either lost their grit or never had it, to sunny Hampton Island, GA. There, the Cadre will hand-pick competitors to be on their teams and take them under their wings as they lead them through all-new team and individual challenges to help them find their grit. With something to prove and a quarter of a million dollars at stake, they must either wipe their tears and step up or "ring out" and go home in the
