The Grand Hustle is an American Reality Competition. The show features a group of sixteen men and women who compete for a six-figure salaried position working under Clifford "T.I." Harris. Each episode focuses on the contestants reactions to a particular challenge, while T.I. observes the contestants back at an Atlanta mansion alongside his business partners and associates. The contestants are progressively eliminated from the game as they are voted out by T.I. until only one remains and is awarded the grand prize and joins Grand Hustle. The First Season consisted of twelve episodes. The series premiered on BET on July 20, 2018. The show airs on Thursday evenings at 10 p.m.
""T.I." is looking to expand his Grand Hustle business empire, so he is on the hunt for a highly skilled executive to join the team. Set in Atlanta, this reality competition series features sixteen men and women competing in various challenges for the coveted position, with a six-figure salary, within Tip's multimillion-dollar company, which he built from the ground up. The hopefuls serve up big deals and even bigger doses of drama each week, en route to one being crowned the Grand Hustler."
The 51 Minds produced show follows the contestants across a dozen hour long episodes that take place in Atlanta. T.I. serves as both a star and executive producer on the show, along with fellow EPs Brian Sher, Christian Sarabia, Vinnie Kaufman and Johnny Petillo. Petillo served as a producer on Donald Trump’s former reality show The Apprentice, and on Survivor, which explains the show's similarities to both series. T.I. says he distinguishes himself from Trump—and fellow hip-hop business reality show maven Diddy—by the way he interacts with the contestants. He emphasizes face-to-face, honest feedback and treats his employees like family.
