Tim Tebow brings his competitive edge to Million Dollar Mile, the obstacle-course competition series hes hosting on CBS.
Although Ive never been an obstacle-course racer I know what its like to be able to try to handle the pressure and the lights and push yourself past limits you didnt think were possible, says Tebow, 31.
The former Heisman Trophy winner, NFL quarterback (Jets, Broncos) and current Mets hopeful hell start the season with the teams Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse taped his 10-episode Million Dollar Mile gig late last fall.
In the series premiering Wednesday, March 27 (9 p.m.) contestants (Runners) tackle a grueling obstacle course and try to claim the $1 million grand prize while battling a team of elite athletes (Defenders, including Emma Chapman, aka The Mighty Kiwi) trying to stop them. LA Chargers play-by-play announcer Matt Money Smith and ESPN host/reporter Maria Taylor provide the commentary.
Million Dollar Mile was not taped under the lights of a TV studio but under the streetlights of downtown LA, on which the obstacle course was constructed. I gotta be honest, I think that adds to the pressure of it, Tebow says of the locale. Youre in the moment, the bigness of it, the feel of it when its lit up at night with the colors and it just looks so cool.
We would film late, then I would sleep in, wake up and go train with the USC baseball team and then head back to the set to look over what we were going to do for the next night, he says. I think the biggest challenge for me, to be honest with you, is that I was so into it that I was losing my voice.

He also has a movie that he produced in the theaters.
I’m curious to see this and like Tim, but he’s just the Moderator/Announcer. I don’t believe he’s competing at all.
Doesn’t give him much room to produce a movie.
I’m here all week folks! Unfortunately. :)
He’s a great guy and it’s one reality sports show I’ll watch just to see him.
do you know the movie name?
That’s correct, he is just hosting the competition. He will not participate, at least as far as I can see from this article.
The movie is “Run The Race.”
former Heisman Trophy winner
There is no such thing as a former Heisman Tropyy winner. Once you earn it, you are always a Hiesman Trophy recipent.
I gotta be honest, I think that adds to the pressure of it, Tebow says of the locale. Youre in the moment, the bigness of it, the feel of it when its lit up at night with the colors and it just looks so cool.

I think the biggest challenge for me, to be honest with you, was having to dive behind the sandbags we erected at the water hazard when MS-13 started throwing shots at us driving by. What a rush!
I also love how much this has done for my Spanish. Nobody on the set speaks English. Some speak a little Farsi, and some Arab, but . . .”
From executive producer LeBron James....
First I have heard that Tim is at all connected to this event.
ALL the hpye I am seeing on TV only talks about LeBron James & “HIS” show.
Which was fantastic!
