Nine celebrities learn that the cutthroat world of Hollywood is nothing
compared to the real life thrills of professional bull riding in the
six-episode series, Ty Murray’s Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge. In the
one-hour series debut, the celebrities arrive in Stephenville, Texas
and meet Ty for the first time. As if meeting the All-Around World
Champion wasn’t enough for one day, Ty invites Justin McBride, 2005
Professional Bull Riding Champion, to the ranch to show the celebrities
how bull riding is done.
After watching McBride, the celebrities get a frightening up-close look at bull riding and realize that it may be a little harder than it looks on TV. After the first day of training, the celebrities get a true feel for what they have gotten themselves into and one star realizes he’s bitten off more than he can chew.
The cast features stars from different walks of life and realms of entertainment and sports, including: Vanilla Ice (Rapper/ Musician), Leif Garrett (Actor/ Musician), Stephen Baldwin (Actor/Writer/Producer), Rocket Raghib Ismail (Former NFL Football Player), “Cowboy” Kenny Bartram (Motocross Rider, X-Games), “Nitro” Dan Clark (Actor/ “American Gladiator”), Jonny “Fairplay” Dalton (Reality Star), Josh Haynes (UFC Fighter), and Francesco Quinn (Actor in “Platoon” and “24″).
Ty Murray’s Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge premieres Friday, August 10 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT.
