Image Credit: Discovery Channel

Discovery is taking the competition series to a new  extreme by pitting Special Forces and law enforcement personnel against each other in challenges that would be impossible for most reality TV contestants.

The network has ordered One Man Army, hosted by former Green Beret Mykel Hawke (Man, Woman Wild). Each episode features four new competitors, including men from the Navy Seals, Marines, Air Force, Army, U.S. Marshals Service, SWAT, and other law enforcement agencies, as well as top fighters from mixed-martial arts and other extreme sports.

The contestants compete in challenges like freeing themselves from a rope hanging them upside down, breaking through a series of walls, figuring out the best tactics to escape from a locked cell. The contestant with the slowest time will be eliminated until there’s only one man standing to claim at $10,000 prize. The show, produced by Renegade 83, will make its series premiere on Wednesday, July 13 and EW has your first teaser:

    Ok i think that the only thing wrong with this show is that it is showing the american people that our special forces can work as one person , when in fact in all their training to get to where their at its all taught by working together as a team, you will never get any where on your own, if those are real special forces guys they will know this

      Sometimes all there is – is you. Then, you must get rid of the dog pack mentality and make it happen. Only a few are able to do this better.

    Alex Schoenauer, an MMA fighter, forgot his sledgehammer and still won this challenge? I don’t have hopes for this show.

    • JAZ

      That is the point. Improvise. And perseverance.
