America’s Toughest Jobs – Could You Do Them?


"America's Toughest Jobs"

'America's Toughest Jobs' is a new extreme competition series that will test 13 men and women who venture out of their safe and comfortable careers and are injected into some of the most challenging, dangerous and demanding jobs on earth.

Tonight NBC premieres their new show 'America's Toughest Jobs'.  There will be four special Monday night shows starting August 25, 2008 and then it will move to its regular time on Friday, September 19. 2008.  America's Toughest Jobs will be hosted by Josh Temple (TLC's Backyard Nation).

From logging high in the Oregon forest to oil drilling on the Texas range, and driving icy roads to extreme fishing – each job requires guts and stamina, and the competitors will have to live up to the same standards as the pros.

At the end of each episode, their new boss and co-workers will determine success or failure, and those who don't make the grade will be sent home. Upping the ante, the annual salary of each job will be thrown into the pot until the finale – where one rookie will take home the well-earned cash, according to America's Toughest Jobs homepage on

The Jobs:

  • Crab Fishing
  • Trucking
  • Gold Digging
  • Monster Trucks
  • Oil Drilling
  • Bullfighting
  • Logging
  • Mountain Search

Get more information about the jobs.

Of the jobs listed above they say that logging is the most hazardous industry in the United States and has the highest number of fatal injuries.  Yet the average salary for a logger is only $44,000.
