Former college football champion, Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow will host the newest high-stakes physical competition series on CBS - Million Dollar Mile.
The series is set to premiere Wednesday, March 27 (9:00 - 10:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS/WFMY News 2.
A group of elite athletes, known as "Defenders," will have a mission to chase down contestants and stop them from winning the $1,000,000 prize in a physical obstacle course. Each contestant will get a two-minute head start to have a chance to win the million-dollar prize when they run the Million Dollar Mile.
The Defenders are a group of 10 top-ranked international athletes, including a Green Beret and “Army Athlete of the Year,” the most decorated Obstacle Course Race (OCR) athlete in history, and a two-time Guinness World Record holder for both the farthest and highest wall flips. These exceptional competitors hold titles in some of the toughest races, including: Kona Ironman World Championships, Tough Mudder X, CrossFit Games, Spartan World Championships and more.
“We searched the globe to find the best athletes to defend the Million Dollar Mile. You may not know their names, but you’re about to,” said executive producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan.
