OF DOOM, LAUNCHED OFF A CLIFF INSIDE THE BACK OF A TRUCK, OR FLOWN
OFF A 300-FOOT CANYON INTO THE SUNSET, ATTACHED TO A JET PACK
"This Is the Craziest Thing I've Ever Done" - "There comes a point in your life where you pretty much have seen it all. Then one day you show up to work, and a grown man soils himself while wearing a full body leotard as he flies away from you wearing a jet pack. That's a good day!," says host Jeff Sutphen. Unbelievable eliminations await this week's players, as they fight for $50,000. Eight contestants must avoid a wrong answer that could get them eliminated in the wildest ways imaginable� by being rolled down a ravine inside the balls of doom, being launched off a cliff while inside the back of a pickup truck, tearing through a flaming wall, or being flown off a 300-foot canyon into the sunset attached to a jet pack. The final four contestants who survive will take on a face-first, ten-story drop atop The Tower for a chance to win the grand prize.
