A new, 10-episode military –inspired competition series

Thursdays at 9pm on FOX

 Set in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest (some of America’s harshest weather), 16 of the country’s toughest men and women are divided into four teams and pushed beyond their limits as they face a variety of military inspired challenges to see if they can prove to the world they have AMERICAN GRIT.


Each week, the teams face a series of near-impossible mental and physical challenges during the Evolution. The team to finish first wins the Evolution and is safe from elimination. The remaining teams must send one contestant (selected by the mentor) to face “The Circus,” a punishing, endurance-based obstacle course designed to break the weakest competitors. During “The Circus,” the first person to give up, will have to “ring out” and go home, thereby eliminating themselves from the competition. 


With up to a million dollars of prize money at stake, this is the ultimate test of strength, courage, determination and, most importantly, teamwork.
