Jen Callahan says a friend sent her a website link to apply to be on Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge, a show that features eight contestants competing in a series of physical challenges with a grand prize of $10,000.

Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge will air Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. on CMT.
