Fox announced that a series that premiered earlier this year will be back for a second season. The series is “American Grit,” a reality competition hosted and executive produced by WWE wrestler John Cena.
The show, which pushes participants to their limits with strength and teamwork challenges, is currently casting for season two. The series is produced by Leftfield Pictures.
“The series is looking for everyday individuals who have overcome great odds and are ready to confront their next challenge,” Fox said in the announcement. Viewers can nominate potential cast members by going to FindYourStrengthCasting.com.
“The first season of ‘American Grit’ saw a diverse group of 16 contestants driven to the brink, as they faced increasingly difficult challenges,” the announcement notes. “The teams were led by elite former military mentors, known as ‘the cadre.’ The only way to leave the competition was to give up and ring out, and in the end, one woman and one man were left standing, splitting a half million dollar grand prize.”
Clare Painter, 47, a horse trainer and fisherman from Omak, Wash., and Mark Bouquin, a timbersports athlete from Colden, N.Y., were the winners of season one.
