CMT has sent out a press release about the return of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge, which has its season premiere on January 4 at 8 PM ET. Men and women compete in several physically-demanding challenges. The winner has a chance to win $10,000 by beating the Skullbuster, an obstacle course designed by Austin. Contestants include bodybuilders, Jiu Jitsu and MMA fighters, arena football, rugby and CrossFit athletes and every day men and women. Season one winner Tommy Hackenbruck will return to see if anyone can beat his Skullbuster time. If the final competitor can’t do it, he will win more money.
The first season of the show will run in a ten hour marathon on New Year’s Eve starting at 12 PM ET. The series is produced by 51 Minds Entertainment with executive producers Christian Sarabia, Rabih Gholam, Steve Austin and co-executive producer Vincent Cariati. Julia Silverton, Jayson Dinsmore and Joe Livecchi executive produce for CMT.
