America’s Toughest Jobs Is Not The I Love Money Of Careereality

When I first heard about America’s Toughest Jobs, which comes on the TV for the first time on Monday night, I got excited (or “excited”) because I thought it was going to be a bunch of Ice Road Truckers, Ax Men, and fishermen from Deadliest Catch living in a house together and saying catchphrases. I thought it was like I Love Money, but I Love Getting Dirty. But instead, it’s regular people who are taught lessons each week by the stars of the aforementioned tough job shows, who will heckle the regular people by saying things like “This isn’t a game show,” even though it is:

I understand that the world needs wood to be chopped, fish to be caught, and things to be transported in bulk over icy areas, but the world does not need rodeos and monster truck rallies.
