Meet ‘The Cadre’ and 17 New Competitors for ‘American Grit’ Season 2

2 years ago by admin

FOX’s “American Grit” host and WWE® Superstar John Cena® welcomes 17 new competitors, all in search of change, to Camp Grit in Hampton Island, GA for season 2. Cena, along with the new mentor group “The Cadre” will live alongside the 17 individuals who either lost their grit or never had it in the first place.

“This season, The Cadre includes John Burk, an Infantry Drill Sergeant with the U.S. Army; Riki Long, a U.S. Marine; Chloe Mondesir, an Ammunition Technician with the U.S. Marines; and Grady Powell, a Green Beret,” from FOX’s press release. The Cadre takes these competitors under their wings and leads them through team and individual challenges. Each week, teams will compete against each other in challenges designed to test their ability to work together, strategize and lead. “The winning team is safe from elimination but the losers’ fate is in the hands of the winning Cadre leader who selects three rival competitors to face off in a final test of endurance.”
