See our interview with Steve Austin

When we talked to Austin earlier about the series he told us that the athletes that were selected for the first 10 episodes of the series came from various disciplines. “A lot of the athletes we are bringing to the ranch are people from the worlds of CrossFit, Spartan Race, the Tough Mudders, MMA backgrounds, some power lifters and body builders,” Austin says.

This season features five episodes with gals against gals, and five episodes with guys vs. guys. “All of the competitions are exactly the same,” Austin says. “The women do exactly what the men do. Man, I didn’t know how the women were going to fare just because some of the stuff is very tough. To me it’s fun watching women compete as they just put it all on the line. I was just blown away with everybody — men and women — we brought truly the elite athletes out to the ranch and they all performed. They all kicked ass. I was blown away and inspired actually by some of the training these people do.”
