American Grit is a physical, military-based reality competition, hosted by wrestling superstar John Cena. 16 American contestants are divided into four teams of four, which are all lead by four separate American military service people. The four team leaders/coaches consist of an Army Ranger sniper, a Navy Seal team leader, a Marine Corps sergeant, and an Army sergeant - all of whom have seen combat, and all of whom are highly decorated. The contestants will have to fight through challenge after challenge, all of which are modeled after real military training platforms, while dealing with the elements of the wilderness - not to mention each other.

It's a fun escape. I think much scripted. Teams meet challenges and one member of each non-winning team has to pass an individual challenge in which one of those drops out. The physicality seems real enough Not much different than other competition shows. As it has completed filming, obviously all of them are paid something to not reveal the end, like all TV competition shows. I am disappointed the first team to be eliminated is obviously the only one led by a woman The injured competitors are also women. This is sending a macho message not all viewers will accept. Cena is impressive I do not understand the overall message, though. I do not see what is being proved other than the most fit will win
