Redneck Island is an American reality competition television series hosted by Stone Cold Steve Austin which strands a group of "rednecks" - from Southern, mostly rural communities - on a deserted island where they compete in two teams for food and immunity, voting out one contestant per week until a winner remains.
The series premiered in the USA on CMT on 9 June, 2012.
Redneck Island premiered in South Africa on DStv's Vuzu channel on Tuesday 2 July 2013, at 19h30. It later began airing on M-Net Series Reality, from Season 2. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.
Season 2 originally aired on Vuzu from 19 November, 2013 to 21 January, 2014, on Tuesdays at 19h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.
Season 2 premiered on M-Net Series Reality on Thursday 13 March 2014, at 23h30. New episodes broadcast daily, on weekdays. There are 10 episodes in the second season.
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 the ultimate redneck-style competition series.
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.
