THE ULTIMATE REDNECK-STYLE COMPETITION SERIES "REDNECK ISLAND," HOSTED BY WWE SUPERSTAR STEVE AUSTIN, SET TO PREMIERE JUNE 9 ON CMT

NASHVILLE - May 24, 2012 - Hosted by WWE superstar Steve Austin, REDNECK ISLAND will take 12 red, white and blue-collared Americans out of their element, and far away from cold beer, for the ultimate redneck-style competition series, which debuts Saturday, June 9 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with a special 2-hour long premiere. Visit CMT.com for a sneak peek at REDNECK ISLAND.

From a remote tropical paradise, Austin will guide the men and women through a number of hilarious mental and physical challenges designed to celebrate the group's strengths and limitations in a quest for $100,000. At the end of each episode, teammates will send one competitor packing.

The REDNECK ISLAND contestants include:

· Catherine Long (Harrisburg, N.C.) - Blonde, bubbly and funny "Southern belle." Likes to have a good time and is fun to be around, but can become stubborn and hot-headed at times. Loves her family, hunting and drinking beer.
