Fox’s new competition show American Grit premiered on Thursday night. The competition show, hosted by John Cena, is composed of four decorated U.S. military veterans mentoring teams of four through grueling obstacles and challenges. The winner of the show takes home a prize of $1 million.
One of the mentors, USMC Gunnery Sgt. Tawanda “Tee” Hanible, had her hands full with contestant Chris Krueger. Krueger is is a physical trainer in Hollywood and can easily be summed up by his own quote: “I am not content to be normal. Normal people are weak and stupid.” After only one challenge, Krueger created dissension in the ranks when he questioned the 19-year veteran’s leadership skills.
When Cena heard what had happened, he took Krueger aside and gave him a pretty stern talking to, saying: “When you were 10 years old, she was in boot camp kicking ass, with men. When you were getting your driver’s license, she was in Iraq in combat and she was responsible not only for her own life but the safety of more than a thousand Marines.” Cena went on to remind Krueger, “You sleep under a blanket of freedom that she has provided for you.” Cena then told the contestant that he owed Hanible an apology, which Kreuger did not agree with.
As karma would have it, Krueger found himself in the final elimination challenge called “the Circus.” Krueger taunted the other competitors and boasted about his strength, but ultimately he was proved to be the weakest and was the first contestant to be eliminated from the show.
