Picking up where we left off, the final!
The final starts off where every other finals starts… in the water! Sarah & Jordan immediately get the lead during the swimming portion and maintain that lead during the kayaking portion. Jay & Jenna keep pace in second place, while Leroy seriously lags in the swimming portion putting him and Theresa in third. After the swim and kayaking, teams must run to the first check point where the must unscramble a word puzzle. Of course, Sarah is thrilled to see a word puzzle and solves it quickly maintaining her lead. During the run, Leroy & Theresa pass Jay & Jenna because Jenna is having a difficult time running. Theresa solves the puzzle, while Jay & Jenna are unable to and advance when time runs out.
2. Throwing Up and Throwing Out
The next check point is a drinking game, but there’s no beer involved. Rather, the glasses are filled with fish guts. Teams start by drinking a glass, then they can flip a coaster 3 times in an attempt to have it land on the top of the glass. If they fail after 3 attempts they drink the glass. No one can successfully flip the coaster, so they all just drink the glasses. Once Jay & Jenna arrive, they’re mortified to see an eating challenge. While Jenna dislikes the fish guts, it’s Jay who cannot drink it. He stands around and eventually TJ emerges. TJ says that they’ll be disqualified if they don’t drink and Jay decides to throw in the towel because he simply cannot drink the fish guts. Jay & Jenna are disqualified and receive no prize money.
3. Running and Sleeping
The teams keep running and until the get to the next check point. They must eat a tube of caviar then throw 5 rocks into a pot of water. If they fail, they must eat another tube of caviar before attempting again. Neither team is successful, but Leroy & Theresa meet up with Sarah & Jordan at this point. Then they continue to ride bikes and jog. Sarah continuously pukes and stops to take a shit in the woods. Eventually, they arrive at the overnight check point. Sarah & Jordan get there first and Leroy & Theresa arrive later. The teams must either stand in front of the fire or sleep on a tiny bed. Neither team gets a good rest, but there’s more final to complete.
4. Climbing for the Prize
The final leg of the race is the climb up Mt. Slogan. Sarah & Jordan’s lead translates into a 5 minute head start, and the cast must climb 10 kilos up the mountain. The camera shows scenes of them running, and slowly climbing, and then taking breaks. Then Jordan starts to talk about his disability and how he can overcome anything!
