Heisman Trophy victor and ESPN announcer Tim Tebow will host the physical competition series, which counts National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James among its executive producers.

Tebow is a two-time national champion, first-round NFL draft pick and Heisman Trophy victor.

"Watching good people compete at their highest ability is always inspirational to me", said Tebow, who played for the University of Florida and appeared on two national championship teams there.

Tebow, 31, is a college football analyst and aspiring major league baseball player in the New York Mets organization.

"If we get our rights we will happily go back, we could move right now", a refugee living in one of the camps told media. All internally displaced persons in Sittwe and other towns must be able to return to their original places and homes.

Contestants will have a chance to win $1 million every time they run the Million Dollar Mile.

Additionally, Los Angeles Chargers play-by-play announcer Matt "Money" Smith and ESPN host Maria Taylor (pictured above) will serve as commentators on the show. Among the producers is Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and his partner Maverick Carter of SpringHill Entertainment. In order to claim that million dollar prize contestants will need to get through the most challenging course ever designed and a group of elite athletes with one mission: to stop them from winning the money at all costs. The series is now in production in Los Angeles for broadcast on the CBS Television Network. Is your interest piqued by the show's hosting choice?

Tebow is now in the Mets' minor league system, and new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said he would likely start the season at Triple-A.
