The celebrates being in Berlin, but they have no idea what they’re in store for. This season, we are going to witness the first final to take place in the middle of a major city. To start off, the cast gets measured for suits. This baffles Cara Maria, but everyone cooperates because they know not to defy strange German men.

2. Barreling Off

The cast are tasked with completing five four checkpoints, but prior to attempting the check points they must run a lap around the city while carrying a bag. Men carry 120 pounds and women carry 60 pounds. When the cast finally gets to the first check point, Cara Maria and Jamie hold a slight lead over Jenna and Brianna while Cory and Mitch are in third. The goal is to roll six barrels up a hill and stack them. The cast does exactly as they’re told and leave in the same order they started.

3. Flipping Out

While running their second lap, Jenna and Brianna pass Cara Maria and Jamie so the girls are the first time to the second check point. The goal? Using a seesaw you must project a glass into a barrel. If you miss, you need to drink a glass of non-alcoholic beer. While this proves to be a challenge, Jenna and Brianna solidify their lead by finishing first. Cara Maira freaks out because she simply cannot fit all the liquid in her stomach, but she and Jamie leave second. Cory and Mitch are stay in third.

4. Getting Blocked

The cast runs another lap, and they then get to the puzzle. The goal, arrange the blocks so they sit flush with the board. All teams complete the puzzle and move on in the same order: Jenna and Brianna in first, Cara Maria and Jamie in second, Cory and Mitch in third.

5. The Last Lap

After one more lap around the city, the cast reaches their final check point, The goal: complete a lap around a large roof by never touching the ground. Teams must alternate tires and cross. Jenna and Brianna have a lead, but they throw a tire too far and start over. While this doesn’t deplete their lead, it puts Jamie and Cara Maria in their sight. Still, they finish first, Cara Maria and Jamie finish second, and Cory and Mitch stay in their. This ends the first day of the final. Who knows what part 2 will have in store?!

In reality, their was a fifth lap around the city and fifth check point where they had to climb stairs. Apparently it got edited out, probably because it was boring and the order didn’t change.


  1. In my opinion this is one of their best finals that they had in a long time. After seeing mountains every seasons its refreshing seeing a city final with all the scenery.

  2. This final was fucking terrible. I looked like a series of watered down regular challenges from back in the day. It was more a game of luck than any kind of strength… Which is lucky for the girls team because Jenna and Brianna just have extremely good luck. Hopefully pt. 2 will be more of a challenge.
