Exclusive First Look: Redneck Island 4

New Season Premieres Thursday (Dec. 4) at 10 p.m. ET/PT

The new season of CMT’s Redneck Island premieres Thursday (Dec. 4) at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and we’re getting pumped.

In this exclusive first look of the ultimate competition series, the 12 guys and 12 girls bring drama, determination and desire to prove they have the physical and mental toughness to make it to the end and win the $100,000 cash prize. What makes things interesting is working with a partner of the opposite sex, which sends hormones flying. Things get so intense, one guy contemplates letting his partner meet his dog. (Now, you know that’s serious.)

Co-host Jessie James Decker says to expect big surprises when it comes to who stays and who goes.

“The Pit was the most intense part of the show,” she says. “Once you get to the Pit, your emotions are high. No one is ever safe.”

What was Decker’s favorite part of the show? The contestants, of course.

“They have big personalities and are real Southern country people,” she explains. “They remind me of the people I went to high school with. … Just fun.”

Watch Redneck Island’s premiere Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. And follow along for exclusive news and video, photo galleries and more on, the CMT App, the official Redneck Island Facebook page and on Twitter using #RedneckIsland.
