Take a peek at the upcoming CBS show
The network recently dropped a sneak peek video of Tough as Nails. In it, Keoghan is seen welcoming the contestants and briefing them on the format of the show. Later, the participants introduce themselves and explain why they are “the best of the best in their chosen trades”.

Speaking about the show, Keoghan said:
“Most of my family [is] working class. So, when I would hear people make derogatory comments about tradespeople or working-class people, it always irked me. This show is really a way to honor hardworking people, who see the calluses on their hands as a badge of honor, and who keep the country running.”
Tough as Nails tests the contestants' mental and physical strength along with agility and endurance. They are eliminated one by one and the last person standing is named as the winner, who gets $200,000 prize money and a Ford Super Duty Truck.
The reality series is unique as the eliminated contestants are not shown the doors; instead, they are given the opportunity to participate in team competitions to win additional prizes.
