Touted as the “ultimate celebrity social experiment,” the 16 celebrity competitors “battle through a set of emulated special forces training challenges” while “they are removed from society and the staff sergeants control everything within the camp.”

You can watch the trailer below which opens with Kenworthy set on fire followed by jaw-dropping stunts by the other competitors.

It’s apparently the kind of grueling training exercises used in honing the skills of elite military personnel.

And the cast is a wide-ranging collection of public figures, athletes, a celebrity chef, former reality contestants, and even a Spice Girl!
