Tim Kennedy thanks to America’s unsung heroes in ‘Hard to Kill’

In ‘Hard to Kill,” Tim Kennedy will try a variety of different tasks that share a common factor, they are deadly.

Tim Kennedy is a tough guy who is about to take on some of America’s most deadly jobs, which he considers both a source of inspiration and honor.

Kennedy is not only an active, Range, qualified, Green Beret, Special Forces Sniper and a top 5 professional MMA fighter, but he is the host of the Discovery of the latest show, “Hard to Kill.” In it, he will spend some time exploring the United States and trying a variety of professions, which, although very different, share a common factor: they can be deadly.

“This show is” Dirty Jobs ” except these tasks will kill you. You’re not cleaning poop off the street, you’re cleaning something that’s going to jump on your face and slit your throat. You’re not trying to disconnect a car battery, you are trying to disconnect a bomb,” Kennedy told Fox News. “Anthony Bourdain’ ‘Sights Unseen’ where I try to take people to places that they would never get access to. To a world that you never imagined. And this world is dangerous, this world is dangerous and the people that live in this world die.”

In each new episode of “Hard to Kill”, which premieres on Tuesday, July 31, at 10 p.m. EST on Discovery, Kennedy spending time with the men and women who keep America running by taking big risks with their work every day.

“I do these tasks for a week, two weeks, a month maybe. These people do these jobs for decades, perhaps even generations,” he said. “There’s not many people who can throw themselves into this world, in these jobs, and the breathing. I do not come out unscathed. I have new scars from this show.”

Despite the difficulty of the assignments, Kennedy says his military training helped him to adjust to the new situations he found himself in. However, he notes that no amount of training can prepare people for a part of the life-or-death situations that these people experience.

“Cold and fire is a way of creeping into the smallest crevices in your courage and find that cowardly. I found my coward over and over and over again. Sometimes every day,” he said. “The first time you feel 33 degrees in the water engulf you, the light goes on black, and you don’t know which one is better… you’re afraid.”

Despite his job description is literally defy death every day, Kennedy is both a husband and father. Fortunately, his family is accustomed to seeing him put himself in dangerous situations, something he is grateful for every day.

“It’s not new, my kids are great, my wife is incredible. They are a different kind of courage. The same kind of courage you will find on this show you can find in my house.”

Why Kennedy decided to put his life in danger to show viewers how these American workers go through day-after-day, the answer is simple: to say thank you for the ungrateful.

“I have been part of the’ task forces ‘ the hunt for the most evil people to walk the face of this planet. I believe that everything has a reason, because I love America. I love the idea of what America is,” he said. “America is a group of people who have these incredible, thankless, selfless jobs that nobody really knows, that makes the American dream possible. All those things that me and my friends did abroad were for a reason, and that is this. This is America, this freedom thing. The men and women in this show that I am to hang out with. That is the bread and butter, that is the glue that is in the possession of the whole.”
