This show aired for only one season, which is disappointing, because it deserved another shot. Almost everybody fails, and the drill instructors have no mercy. The challenges ranged from the physical battles of the obstacle course and calisthenics, to the mental effort required to hang on as an individual. The prize was a quarter million dollars, and the effort required to complete the tasks in the training appeared to be much harder than in most reality shows.
"Boot Camp" now airs in a loop on the Fox Reality channel. I wish they'd come back for new episodes. I don't think that's possible, but at least we have what was there the first time. It's a unique story, and I'm glad that they told it.
