WWE Superstar John Cena, along with a host of military specialist welcome the new AMERICAN GRIT competitors, who have lost their grit or never had it. Participants will be hand-picked by these military personnel to form a team. These individuals then become part of a team that will be challenged to take part in a number of different obstacles. The goal of the competition is to help them find their grit plus win $250,000. It's time to wipe away the tears and step up or “ring out” at which point they go home. AMERICAN GRIT is part of our summer-long Sunday block airing at 8:00pm right here on KTTW Fox 7...the most exciting place on television!
