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.
