Redneck Island Returns With New Co-Host and Hot Twist

Jessie James Decker Will Join Steve Austin as Co-Host of Popular CMT Series

Redneck Island , CMT’s ultimate competition series, returns for a fourth season and promises to be rowdier than ever with a hot new co-host and even hotter new twist.

Country singer-songwriter and TV personality Jessie James Decker joins wrestling icon Steve Austin as masters of ceremonies on the island tucked away at a lake in North Georgia.

Consisting of 10 one-hour episodes, the new season marks the return of one of the most popular CMT series since it debuted in 2012. Part of CMT’s outrageous Thursday nights, the all-new Redneck Island will debut with a 90-minute extended premiere on Dec. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

This season, 12 guys and 12 girls will fight to win cold hard cash in the ultimate redneck competition series where time spent partying is just as important as time spent competing. While these rednecks may arrive single and ready to mingle, a high-stakes, sexy spin on the original format will pair male and female teammates as bunkmates in a new twist that is sure to fuel both competition and romance at the lake house. One guy/gal team will ultimately walk away from this little redneck heaven $100,000 richer.
