Million Dollar Mile is an obstacle course competition television series that premiered on March 27, 2019, on CBS.[1] Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow as the host, with Matt "Money" Smith and Maria Taylor as co-hosts, and NBA superstar LeBron James as an executive producer.[2] The course will shut down the streets of Los Angeles, while contestants running it will have the opportunity to win $1,000,000 every time they complete it. The contestants will have to overcome various obstacles along the course, including a group of elite athletes whose goal is to stop them from winning the prize money.[3][4]

After just two episodes with "lacklustre ratings,"[5] CBS moved the show from its Wednesday slot after Survivor to Saturday nights. The network filled the show's time slot with a repeat episode of NCIS, and moved up the premiere date of season 31 of The Amazing Race.

Tier levels[edit]

After a contestant completes an obstacle, they earn a level of prize money. However, they are not guaranteed that money until they successfully exit the course. Contestants who complete three obstacles are automatically guaranteed $50,000 regardless of whether they finish or not.

Obstacles Completed Money
1 $10,000
2 $25,000
3 $50,000
4 $100,000
5 $250,000
6 $1,000,000
