The Thrills and Challenges
As ‘Tough as Nails’ ventures into its fifth season, viewers can expect an array of thrilling challenges and intense competition. The host of the show, Phil Keoghan, shared some insights into what fans can anticipate.
One notable challenge making a comeback in Season 5 is ‘The Gauntlet”. This challenging event takes place towards the end of the competition and features the final three contestants. ‘The Gauntlet’ will be set in a dry dock, surrounded by massive ships in need of repairs. Contestants will engage in various tasks, including sod work and working with soil, testing their skills and endurance.
Another exciting challenge awaits the teams in the upcoming season: the “pick-up of fruit.” In this task, the teams will race against each other to gather apples, adding an element of speed and precision to the competition.
In an interview with Variety, Phil Keoghan (the host of the show) said, ‘”Tough as Nails” appeals to people of all ages and a lot of our audiences are early-to-bed-early-to-rise so the early time slot is a chance to grab people. We started looking at different places that we could go to. And the one that really stood out was the idea of basically going to a place that is the steel capital of Canada, and a place that is known as the Hammer, and a place that is known for having a lot of top workers there.’
He added, ‘The competition was very, very tight all season. We also get to ignite some explosives in a big quarry. We have a payback episode where we used all the skills of our cast to give back and to do something for other people.’
