‘Tough As Nails’ is a reality television series that is essentially a physical endurance test centered around a group of individuals who have previously experienced the grit of physical labor. But the show mixes it up with glamor by showcasing people having regular blue-collar jobs on TV. The manual labor they’re ordinarily accustomed to is given a slight tweak and transformed into a basis for a game show where the participants compete against each other. They perform standard construction-related tasks, and the winner takes home a whopping $200,000. The best part about this game is that no one goes home. The eliminated contestant stays back to assist in other activities and can still bag additional prizes. The first season greatly celebrated the working class and, at the same time, presented an unprecedented game show that entertained people. After its renewal for another season, we dug into the second season premiere, and here’s what we discovered about ‘Tough As Nails’ season 2, episode 1!
