Where is 'Tough as Nails' Season 2 winner now? Scott Henry fights bullying on TikTok
Scott Henry really is as 'Tough as Nails' as he's using his cash prize to stop bullying via TikTok
Season 2 of CBS' 'Tough as Nails' featured 12 contestants, who were described as “hardworking Americans who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.” In the previous nine episodes, they did everything - from breaking up concrete to baiting lobster traps, from racing bulldozers to landscaping yards!
“I was blessed to be just a part of this competition, to be part of ‘Tough as Nails,’” Scott Henry, winner of Season 2 of 'Tough as Nails' said. “And even more blessed and honored to be the champion of Season 2.”
Henry’s team won 5 out of the 9 team competitions, each worth 12,000 USD (split five ways)! For winning a majority of the team challenges, Savage Crew (Henry's team) claimed a 60,000 dollar bonus! In addition to his first-place winnings, Henry took home an additional 24,000 dollars as his share of his team’s earnings.
Henry was a dominant force in Season 2 of 'Tough as Nails', winning 3 of a total of 9 individual challenges, and finishing second in three others! Henry never finished a challenge in the bottom two and didn't face elimination from the individual competition either.
Today, Henry is not only a husband and a doting father, he's also a TikTok sensation, using the platform to help stop bullying, quite unconventional for sure, but the internet is totally buying it! The 40-year-old says he took to the video-sharing app as a way to spread positivity, and now has over 2 million followers!
These days, he's using all of that social media capital for an important cause: stomping out bullying. Henry used to be bullied in school himself, so he has resorted to TikTok to ensure no one else goes through his experience. He's serving as an ambassador with "Stomp Out Bullying," the leading national anti-bullying and cyberbullying organization in the country.
According to Stomp Out Bullying, one out of four kids are bullied, and up to 43% of students have been bullied online. The organization spreads awareness and works on solutions for responding to all forms of bullying, inclusive of a live chat line that's off-limits to adults.
"I want to be the person that spreads love, spreads positivity and I have a platform that I can use to stomp out bullying," Henry said.
Season 3 of 'Tough as Nails' premieres on Wednesday, October 6, at 9 pm ET.
