Watkins graduate on national television

AGUA DULCE, CALIFORNIA--Steve Austin's "Broken Skull Challenge" television reality show on the CMT Network is all about athletic prowess, bragging rights and some cash for the winners. For Cathy Brown, a 2001 Watkins Glen high school graduate, the show has been an adventure to meet some other highly-trained athletes who also love to compete.
Brown lives in Pine City and is an operating room "scrub tech" for Arnot Hospital.
When Brown is not at the hospital, she is often working out with one of her own fitness routines. Brown said, "I've always been an athlete. After high school I went to the University of Connecticut where I was a Division I swimmer." Brown adds, "Then after college I continued to stay with a fitness regime while working at the hospital."
Brown says she has watched the show in the past couple of years and was encouraged by some girl friends to get involved with the "Broken Skull Challenge" competition try-outs. After thinking about it, she thought it would be fun. The show's creator is Steve Austin, who was previously a professional wrestler. The actual taping of the television show takes place in Agua Dulce, California, which is located just outside of Los Angeles. The show's name comes from Austin's ranch location in Tilden, Texas.
Each episode of the show brings together a group of eight contestants, either men or women, to the "Broken Skull Challenge" set. The contestants compete in a series of physical challenge eliminations that include pushing a truck tire up a steep incline to wrestling each other. The winner is named the champion and can win $10,000 in prize money.
Brown said the whole thing has been a great experience. She added, "The competition at the show was fun, but the best part has been meeting the other girls and getting to know them better as friends. We stay in touch and inspire each other in our workout routines and other ways. It's been great!"
The show with Cathy Brown's competition airs next Tuesday, Oct. 3 on the CMT Network, at 10 p.m. EST.
