America's Toughest Jobs

By August 19, 2008

Follow me on:

Monster Truck America’s Toughest Jobs is a new extreme competition television series that will test contestants who are willing to take on what the show considers the most challenging and dangerous jobs on earth, competing for both glory and a paycheck.

The jobs include logging, crab fishing, search and rescue, ice road trucking, monster truck driving, bridge work, gold digging, and rodeo bull fighting. There are 13 contestants, including a Wall Street executive, a recruiter, a carpenter, a personal trainer, a teacher, and an administrative assistant.

At the end of each each episode, the contestants' new boss and co-workers decides who can do the job and who gets to go home. The over-all winner gets the combined annual salary ($250,000) of all the tough jobs. America's Toughest Jobs premieres on NBC Monday, August 25 at 9 pm ET.

Let me know what you think is America's toughest job and if you have a tough job that you'd like me to profile, here's how to submit. I already have a selection of cool jobs and I'd like to include some tough jobs, as well.

I think it will be a good show to watch. It combines the reality theme everyone seems to love and the smash, crash bang too.

This is a good show, I can’t wait to see the logging part of it, these people really don’t know what they’re getting into,
