After a four-week hiatus, Million Dollar Mile returned to CBS on Saturday night with Episode 3 of the LeBron James-produced and Tim Tebow-hosted television reality show.
Since the program has been off the air for an extended period of time, here’s a brief refresher on the premise. Contestants compete in an obstacle course set up in the streets of Los Angeles for the chance to win prize money worth up to $1 million.
Oh, they also have to get around a group of elite athletes in their quest to win the race.

The contestants get a two-minute head start to make sure they aren’t completely overwhelmed by the athletes. Despite starting with an advantage, it’s turning out to be quite difficult for contestants to have success.
Olivia Lozano, a wildlife firefighter from California, found out the hard way when she got caught on the hang-time track almost as soon as she arrived at the rotating wheel.
