An ailing brother, facing fears and shedding bad guy image are some of the things that motivate the nine contestants to keep pushing themselves on the TNT reality series.
A new extended look at TNT's new show "The Hero" has been shared online. The five-minute sneak peek features the host, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, explaining what they are looking for. Through an epic competition, the show will test the nine contestants physically, mentally and morally to decide who has the quality of a hero.
Throughout the daring challenges, The Rock will be there to offer support to the players. The physical tests aside, the promo video reveals the ultimate goal, motivation and inspiration of each contestant.
Rachel tries to prove to her hearing-impaired son that nothing is impossible, muscular Shaun wants to change people's opinion about him, and Athena fights to make her brother's life better.
In the end, America will be the ultimate judge of who deserves the title of The Hero. The show will air Thursdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on TNT, beginning June 6.
