This is the ultimate timed obstacle course with fire and water. Contenders ascend and dive off of a 10-foot platform, swim beneath a flaming surface and climb a cargo net to pedal cranks high above ground. The contenders then pedal to a beam they must traverse across, then leap off and sprint up the Pyramid to a giant zip line that drops them at the reverse escalator. At the top of the reverse escalator they race again to crash through the finish line.
Again, I only saw the female contestants do this. But man oh man, this eliminator is freakin awesome! Did you read the first line? Fire and Water. Swim beneath a flaming surface? Oh snap... that right there could be a potential lawsuit waiting to happen. Shoot I need to go up for air, oh crap, my head's on fire! Crazzzzzy! I love it. One of the girls was a really buff African American, Koya, and the other was a fit, but comparatively tiny asian woman, Venus. As soon as they got out of the water, I could tell Venus was struggling. She looked like she was going to pass out. Koya had a big lead, but when she got to the reverse treadmill, she just could not make it to the top. This is what I love about the show... the suspense, the thrill of seeing the underdog catch up. Venus surprisingly caught up and won the eliminator, leaving Koya sadly dangling from the rope on the reverse treadmill. It was the funniest thing I've ever seen, and I swear I hurt my side laughing so hard. When Koya finally made it to the top and busted through the barricade, she looked like she just collapsed and fell face first down the mat. Classic.
Keep your eye out for this show, it's freakin awesome!
