38-year-old Bones, a radio personality, is famous for his program, “The Bobby Bones Show.” In 2017, Forbes declared him as “the most powerful man in country music.”


Ware, a former NFL player, played for the Dallas Cowboys from 2005 to 2013. Then, the 36-year-old joined the Denver Broncos in 2014. By the end of the 2016 season, he had announced his retirement.

Started off as an Instagram influencer, 21-year-old Ren is a model who has appeared in Maxim and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. In the past, she struggled with an eating disorder and also went through her mother passing away because of breast cancer in 2013.


46-year-old Umstead, a Paralympic alpine skier, had competed at the Winter Paralympics in 2010, 2014, and 2018. When she was 13, the doctors found out that she had retinitis pigmentosa. It is a genetic eye disorder that results in blindness.

39-year-old Di Pace is an actor on Netflix’s “Fuller House,” which is the “Full House” revival. He previously appeared in the 2008 film, “Mamma Mia!”

Country singer Schneider, 58, appeared in “The Dukes of Hazzard” starting at 1979 up until 1985. His most recent gigs were appearances in “Smallville” and “The Haves and the Have Nots.”
