At the beginning of this week's episode, a huge twist is revealed by Dwayne Johnson.

Someone must attempt a daunting open-water swim through the ocean in the Hero Challenge. No one is safe. In the War Room, Dwayne asks the heroes to find their warrior spirit for the toughest challenge yet. And Charles makes a stirring plea.

DESCRIPTION:
(from TNT's press release, March 2013) Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson headlines this epic new competition series that will bring nine ordinary people together and assign them various missions testing their brains, their brawn and even their morality. The show will challenge the competitors to prove they've got what it takes to be heroes, pushing them to the limits to see what they are willing - and able - to overcome, undergo, or sacrifice for the sake of their fellow contestants. Through the show's unique interactive digital platform, viewers will be polled each week to determine the contestant they consider to be the most heroic. The competition will then climax with viewers voting to determine who deserves the grand prize and the title of "The Hero." The Hero is executive-produced by Electus (Ben Silverman, Chris Grant and Jimmy Fox); 5x5 Media (part of the Electus studio system led by Craig Armstrong and Rick Ringbakk); Charles Wachter; Dwayne Johnson; and Dany Garcia. The series was created by Armstrong and Ringbakk of the Emmy(R)-winning 5x5 Media (Survivor, Fashion Star, TBS's King of the Nerds), along with Wachter (Fashion Star, Food Revolution) and Electus' Silverman (Fashion Star, The Biggest Loser, The Office).
