Event highlights in "Episode 104":
Teams will split up and run in opposite directions on a golf course located on the beautiful Atlantis Resort. Once they meet up on the course, they'll have to pass a baton, at which point they'll both quickly turn around and race back to the starting position to determine which team is fastest.
Every team member will be given a single attempt. In each round, the team with the lowest combined score will be eliminated. Teams must alternate who bowls first. The rounds will continue until only one team is left. The top team overall is safe from elimination.
"The Superstars" past winners include football stars Herschel Walker in 1987 and Jason Sehorn in 1998, decathlete Dave Johnson in 1993 and Olympic skier Bode Miller (who makes his return this year) in 2002.
