Season Three of 'Redneck Island' premieres on CMT Wednesday, June 5th at 9:30 p.m. CT, after the CMT music awards. After the premiere, new episodes will air Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. CT on CMT.
Hosted by pro wrestling hall of famer Steve Austin, the show takes 15 Southerners and drops them in a tropical paradise where they will compete for $100,000. Austin will guide the contestants through a number of mental and physical challenges designed to celebrate the group's strengths and limitations. At the end of each episode, teammates will send one competitor packing.
Two of the Season 3 contestants are from Southern Alabama. 24-year-old Candice is from Creola and 24-year-old Jo is from Theodore. Candice and Jo stopped by Studio 10 to talk about the audition process and the craziness you can expect on Season 3. You can see that in this video.
Here are Candice and Jo's bios on CMT.com:
Candice,24 - Creola, Ala.
Candice, a.k.a. "Candy," is a Southern girl who isn't afraid to get dirty on the racetrack or put on her camo gear to go hunting. She is a sassy Hooter's girl who says, "I'm really nice until you give me a reason not to be." Candy is used to being treated like a princess and won't be bullied around by any redneck on the island. She is hellbent on finding the man of her dreams. She plans on seducing all of the men, building alliances with them and taking down all the challenges in order to win. If Candy wins $100,000, she plans on buying her parents a house and getting breast implants.
Daniel "Jo", 24 - Theodore, Ala.
Daniel wouldn't trade in his redneck-camo wearing-backwoods-mudding ways for anything else. When his ex-fiance decided to end their relationship, Daniel became a womanizer who is just looking for a good time and not another relationship. He is a party boy who likes to have fun at the expense of others and doesn't care if they don't like it. He thinks people take themselves too seriously, and he doesn't want to be one of those people. If Daniel wins $100,000, he plans on buying a truck and boat with his winnings.
