Contest will see adult civilians from all walks of life go head-to-head with Boy Scouts as they compete in challenges based on the Scouts' 100-year-old handbook as they bid for merit badges.
The scouts are at Sequoia National Forest to face three new competitors: Dan wants to prove to his Eagle Scout brothers that he could have been one; John wants to prove himself to his soon-to-be Eagle Scout sons; and Mark wants to chase his boyhood dream of being a Scout. The first challenge tests orienteering and climbing skills. Afterward, the scouts must vote on who must abandon his boyhood dream. After a tough battle, the final test puts the last adult through a series of trail challenges.
The scouts are in Sequoia National Forest to face competitors with something to prove: Lee, a former Marine; Paul, who feels guilty for dropping out as a teen and David, who left scouts three badges shy of an Eagle Scout. The first challenge pits adults against scouts. They must face a bridge rappel before rafting down Class Three rapids. After one adult goes home, the competitors must prove they can pitch a tent. Will the scouts prevail, or could Lee, Paul or David be Tougher Than a Boy
John, Marc and Jason all have something to prove: Two are former Eagle Scouts and one wants to see what would've happened if he hadn't dropped out as a teen. The first challenge is a three-part relay race and the adults have a tough time keeping up against scouts Trent and Rob. The next challenge threatens to halt the competition when a contestant gets heat exhaustion. The last challenge pits the sole adult against Rio in Sink or Swim."
Meet three adults who think they could be Tougher Than a Boy Scout: Bill, who hopes to make his scoutmaster dad proud; Paul, who is competing in memory of his grandfather, a former scout; and Marc, a probation officer with no scout experience. Pioneering and shooting are put to the test as the adults team up to show off their skills. After a tough vote, only one remains for the final challenge: an orienteering race. Scout Mike competes with skill, but an unexpected twist could cost him the lead.
The Scouts are up against three tough adult competitors: Rage and James both dropped out of Boy Scouts and are back to finish what they started, and Dave, an ex-soccer player, is competing to honor his deceased father. The first challenge requires the adults to display their Scouting skills in a demanding archery and rifle shooting competition. After the Scouts send one person home, the two remaining adults must compete in the Boy Scout Quiz Show.
The scouts are up against three tough competitors: Gregg who is competing to honor his father; Howard, who as a kid, was told that he couldn't be a Scout; and Stev, who was kicked out of Scouts at age 7. Their skills are put to the test in a relay. The challenge takes a dangerous turn and the scouts have to make a tough decision. What's important, speed or safety? When the last man makes it to the finals, he faces a bow and arrow ace in archery and must prove he's Tougher Than a Boy Scout.
