Tough as Nails season 4 premieres Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. The competition, which takes place on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California, will pit 12 contestants against one another to win the $200,000 grand prize.

The competitors vying for the crown are all essential workers that will be testing their expertise at real job sites that include carpentry, construction, farming, fishing, welding, and more. But, even if they’re eliminated–dubbed as “punching out” on this series–they won’t be sent home. They’ll continue in the competition as a part of either Team Dirty Hands or Savage Crew to win additional cash prizes. There’s also a bonus reward up for grabs this season on Tough as Nails.

After the premiere, starting Jan. 11, the show will move to airing at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesdays. Who’s in this year’s cast? Keep reading for a rundown of the participants and their fields.
