NASHVILLE - October 31, 2012 - Returning for his second season as host of REDNECK ISLAND, wrestling hall of famer Steve Austin will take 14 new red, white and blue-collared Americans out of their element, and far away from cold beer, for the next round of CMT's ultimate redneck-style competition series, which debuts Saturday, November 10 at 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the first episode, the competition turns serious quickly as contestants discover their first challenge is a game of human cornhole. Throughout the 10-episode season, the group must overcome tough mental and physical challenges to prove they are the reddest of them all and win $100,000.

Fans can join in the fun as Steve Austin tweets live during the November 10 premiere via @steveaustinBSR using hashtag #RedneckIsland beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET.
