Still trying to find its footing, CBS’ Million Dollar Mile was back for its fourth episode Saturday evening after moving from Wednesdays to Saturdays on May 4.
Coincidentally, it is the premise of the show—hosted by Tim Tebow and produced by LeBron James‘ SpringHill Entertainment—to win up to $1 million on foot, as contestants take on a mile-long obstacle course through the streets of downtown Los Angeles while proven athletes, dubbed “Defenders,” chase them.
Each contestant is granted a two-minute head start. However, should a Defender surpass a contestant on the course, the contestant is sent home empty-handed.
The first contestant to go for $1 million in Saturday’s episode was Andy Stern, a group fitness teacher. “You’re gonna get hit, you’re gonna get hard, you’re gonna get knocked down,” the 29-year-old told the camera ahead of his race. “But it’s actually not about what happens to you. It’s how you react.”
