1 Redefining Toughness/Get the Job Done
Twelve hard-working Americans take on navigating a wheel barrow and testing their brick-laying skills to win the opportunity to choose their teams, on part one of the two-hour series premiere. Next, The Tough As Nails crew takes on three challenges: they get down and dirty in their first team competition as they work to complete the missing part of a railroad track; they "punch in" for their initial individual test, and the last two standing face off in a railroad overtime challenge, on part two of the two-hour series premiere.
2 Heavy Metal
The crew competes in a series of challenges at a junk yard, where they must take apart a car and retrieve auto parts. Next, the last two standing need all the strength they can spare in an overtime challenge removing tires from the rims.
3 Release the Bull!
Tensions run high during the team challenge when one crew has issues with communication while building a large fence on a farm.
4 Mind Over Matter
It's no day at the beach for teams Savage Crew and Dirty Hands as they compete to fill and seal giant bags of sand.
5 Game of Telephone
Teams are challenged mentally and physically when tasked with pushing 24 heavy barrels uphill and arranging them in a specific order at an oil field, and one crew member must conquer a fear of heights to climb a telephone pole.
6 Trash Day
The two crews each look for an important win in the team competition when tasked with packing a moving van, and competitors look to avoid elimination during the individual competition by collecting and loading trash into a moving garbage truck.
7 Trust Your Gear
Competitors take on a series of "Five alarm" challenges at a firefighter training facility.
8 Cut It Up
Teams 'Savage Crew' and 'Dirty Hands' compete in the final competition to win the overall team prize.

The final five competitors battle to be crowned the champion of TOUGH AS NAILS and win the $200,000 prize! Plus, the finalists get a much-needed boost when their loved ones cheer them on.

About this show

TOUGH AS NAILS is about competitors who consider the calluses on their hands a badge of honor. They will be tested for their strength, endurance, agility and mental toughness in challenges that take place in the real world. One by one, they will be eliminated until the TOUGH AS NAILS winner is named. The series will redefine what it means to be tough, proving that it comes in all shapes and sizes, and will celebrate Americans who roll up their sleeves 24/7 and don't think twice about working long hard hours and getting their hands dirty, in order to keep their country running.

Scott Henry worked very well when he was afraid of heights. He was very thoughtful of everyone on his team and players. They all were wonderful. Great teams, great players with great skills.
