Plot Synopsis

In this reality competition series 13 men and women venture out of their safe and comfortable careers and tackle some of the most challenging, dangerous and demanding jobs on earth. From logging high in the Oregon forest to oil drilling on the Texas range, and driving icy roads to extreme Alaskan crab fishing -- each job requires guts and stamina, and the competitors have to live up to the same standards as the pros. At the end of each episode, their new boss and co-workers determine success or failure, and those who don't make the grade are sent home. The annual salary of each job is thrown into the pot until the finale -- where one rookie takes home the cash.
