In the offbeat reality competition “Million Dollar Mile,” contestants can win a million bucks by running a mile.
Only trouble is they have to deal with a grueling obstacle course — and a group of athletes trying to keep them from the finish line. (9 p.m. Wednesday, CBS).
Tim Tebow, the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback at the University of Florida, is hosting the reality TV show with production help from NBA superstar LeBron James involving an “epic” obstacle course race.
“LeBron and his team did an amazing job coming up with it,” Tebow said. “Let’s put it this way: To win, you got to pull yourself up a 15-story building and zip-line down. I may or may not have zip-lined down the 15-story building to start one of the episodes. It’s epic. It’s like some of the other shows you’ve seen, just like on steroids.”
