The show saw eight celebrities embark on an adventure after gruelling training under Hof. After airing eight episodes in the first season, the network confirmed that the show will not be renewed for a second one.

While there were speculations over what could have been the reason for cancellation, Mack implied that the show was merely boring to continue.

“Celebs in cold water did not make as exciting television as they thought,” Mack told The Sun.

However, he admitted, “I liked it. I was booked to be the cynical comic.”
