Storyline

American Grit is a physical, military-based reality competition, hosted by wrestling superstar John Cena. 16 American contestants are divided into four teams of four, which are all lead by four separate American military service people. The four team leaders/coaches consist of an Army Ranger sniper, a Navy Seal team leader, a Marine Corps sergeant, and an Army sergeant - all of whom have seen combat, and all of whom are highly decorated. The contestants will have to fight through challenge after challenge, all of which are modeled after real military training platforms, while dealing with the elements of the wilderness - not to mention each other. At the end of each episode, the team leaders of the 3 losing teams will pick a contestant from their team to run the dreaded Circus obstacle course. The obstacle course stays the same throughout the competition, but the "endurance challenge" at the end of the Circus changes from week to week. A contestant cannot be voted or kicked out of ...

I look forward to this show every Sunday!
25 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely love this show! I especially love season 2! In fact, I like season 2 a lot more than season 1. I love the four cadre that were picked, and I love the fact they used "vulnerable" participants. The drama and the craziness makes it so much more entertaining! It's so relatable and I love seeing all the dynamics of contestants. I also love the dynamics and the differences among the Cadre. I look forward to watching this show every Sunday! I hope that if this is renewed for a 3rd season, they design it the same way it was for Season 2.
