Golden Nuggets of T.J. Lavin, Austin Jochum and Back End Show #1

The first week of Season 3 was a smashing hit. We got off to a hot start with T.J. Lavin, host of MTV’s the Challenge, then got after an insanely motivating story in Austin Jochum, and finished the week with our first ever Back End Show.
