‘Broken Skull Challenge’ Episode Guide (Aug. 3): Eight Men Compete for $100K

“Locked and Loaded” (08/03/14) – Eight new men try and prove that they have what what it takes to compete at the Broken Skull Challenge and prove they are the toughest guy standing. They’ll go through Possession, Loaded and the Grip & Rip. The winner moves on to face the Skullbuster for a chance to win $10,000.

Just in time for the scorching months of summer, CMT debuts the most badass competition series yet when “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge” airs Sunday nights at 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The brain-child of wrestling icon Steve Austin, the 10-episode series pits elite athletes against everyday men and women in the ultimate test of strength, stamina and wit.

Each episode features eight contestants in head-to-head battles, until the last man or woman standing earns the right to take on the toughest obstacle course in America created by Austin himself, the “Skullbuster,” for a chance to win cash. Austin, who previously helmed three seasons of “Redneck Island” on CMT, is known for being one of the toughest competitors in the wrestling arena.

“Broken Skull Challenge” combines his fierce love for physical competition with extreme challenges using the core tenants from such current fitness trends as CrossFit and Spartan Race. Austin’s half-mile “Skullbuster” features 10 obstacles designed to stop even the most hardcore athletes, built to progressively break the body down. Everyone’s equal at the ranch, as women find themselves subject to the same punishment as men.
