"No.520 - Couples, Episode No.4"
COUPLES TAKE THE PLUNGE FOR LOVE -- In the fourth episode of a special seven-part couples contest, one couple is divided as five pairs of partners remain to test their relationships by facing fear as a team and working together to capture an ultimate payoff of $1 million. In this episode, a contestant wearing weighted boots plunges through a trap door and must wait underwater as their partner dives in to unlock the boots, then they both swim to the top. Also, a twist in the game sends rival couples into a fighting frenzy, leaving one couple torn apart and in tears. Joe Rogan hosts this series in which eight couples recruited from across the nation must decide if they have the guts and determination to face their most primal fears when confronted with a series of challenging stunts under the supervision of professional Hollywood stunt coordinators.
