Who's in the Season 3 Tough as Nails cast?

With "Tough As Nails" Season 3 on the horizon, many are left clamoring to know who the cast will consist of. 

While the roster of contestants has yet to be revealed, viewers have come to expect that the cast will be chock-full of tough, hard-working Americans who are not afraid to put in a long hard day's work. According to the official CBS website, the show aims to include "competitors who consider the calluses on their hands a badge of honor will be tested for their strength, endurance, life skills and, most importantly, mental toughness in challenges that take place at real-world job sites." And in seasons past, viewers have been treated to exactly that.

Take for instance the second season's winner, Scott Henry (pictured above). As reported by The Salt Lake Tribune, the Season 2 champion hails from Utah and worked as a construction worker before competing on the show — though it's reported he almost didn't respond to the show's email because he believed it to be fake. Fortunately, he did end up reaching back out and the rest is simply history!
