Minneapolis (WCCO​​) — The Minneapolis Fire Chief is starring in a reality TV show that will premiere next week.

This summer, Kalimba Edwards filmed CBS’s new season of “Tough as Nails” for six months in California. The show allowed 12 people to compete with each other in physical fitness competitions to test strength, life skills and mental toughness.

Edwards is competing for a prize of $200,000.

“As a firefighter, especially in large urban areas, we are used to working under pressure,” Edwards said. “I am used to working with different people and different teams, no matter who I work with, I can accomplish tasks.”

Edwards could not talk about the specific details of the game, but she said it was a lot of blue-collar trade skills, such as carpentry and plumber. She said that some of the things she did on the show were more challenging than fighting fires.

“We all experienced some ups and downs,” Edwards said. “You are being taxed, not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. It is draining. You are doing something you have never done before.”

Colleagues who watched the show excitedly said that Edwards is very suitable for such a show because of her tenacity and persistence.

Edwards also got some bragging rights from a promo on her show.

“On paper, Kalimba Edwards is the strongest woman in our history,” said host Phil Keoghan. “In terms of sheer power.”

Edwards admitted that she played that video over and over again.

“I want to play on the speakers at the station when I walk, like,’I’m sorry, guys,'” she said.

Edwards will watch the premiere with her family, while her colleagues will hold a viewing party at the fire station.
