Nine strangers, teamed in groups of
three, are about to be whisked away to the deserts of the American
Southwest for 72 hours
with no food, no shelter, and only one bottle of water. Danger awaits
them at every corner, but if they make it out on the other side, there
is $100,000 waiting for them.

There's only one rule... Be the first
team to find the briefcase of money... and you get to take it home. But
there is a catch. You have to FIND IT first. Aside from fresh clothes
and a bottle of water each, you have a GPS and a walkie-talkie. The GPS
will lead you to supply drops toward the money, and the radio will be
your lifeline for survival.
And the adventure for $100,000... STARTS
The first Supply Drop is located 6 miles
away at Navajo Peak. The Blue and Green Teams are taking an easier, but
longer route to SD1, but the Reds have taken a direct, but more
difficult route. They are currently in the lead.
Breanna has a heart condition. This is
relevant. Meanwhile, the Blues are already in trouble, as Daniel is
struggling with cardio issues. Lori had reconstructive face surgery
after a car wreck, so what's your problem?
SUPPLY DROP 1
First to the orange windsock.. Red Team.
Each team has their choice of items in three identical cases. Every
supply is useful, but not every item is necessary for survival, so
choosing the right items to carry with you is crucial.
REDS: medical kit, multi-tool, flint,
flares, climbing gear, tarp
The Blues decide to radio for a Relief
Drop and set up camp. The Reds do the same thing.
Meanwhile, the Greens catch up to the
Reds, but they have yet to ... yeah, spoke too soon.
GREENS: Same as Reds.
Sun is down, so the race for the money is
called for the night. The Reds and Greens are tied for the lead, while
the Blues are still in third. And Daniel has conveniently forgotten his
Day 2 begins with the Blue Team and the
BLUES: Same as the other two teams.
Now the teams descend to the Chama River,
canoe six miles, and trek five to Rattlesnake Ridge and the second
The Blues finally catch up to the Red
Team within an hour. All three teams are now at their canoes, and we're
all rowing. Through the rapids and the rocks, the Blue Team flip their
canoe and end up digging a serious hole. Same with the Greens. The
Reds... no problem whatsoever. Until THEIR canoe flips. Breanna & Cat
make a swim for it, and Andrew joins them. All three team have decided
to call it a day.
Daniel couldn't start a fire. Lori...
did. Some Marine.
Next day, we're still six miles away from
the second Supply Drop. The correct decision will lead them directly to
the Drop. The wrong one will lead them to impassable canyons.
SUPPLY DROP 2
Red Team radios for supplies....
REDS: Water filtration pump, walking
... followed by the Blues...
BLUES: Same as Reds.
Tony on the Greens reached his breaking
point with a dead end in a canyon. The team tries to get him to dig
deep. While he takes a breather, we take a Relief Drop, but Tony wants
out... but he will not quit. The adventure continues. Thanks to Courtney
Supply Drop 3 is located on Roja Mesa.
SUPPLY DROP 3
... and the Reds are first. They
receive... the Blue Team arriving. Both teams have a pair of binoculars.
All that's left is the cash... and Brandon is in his chopper OVER IT.
Now you just have to find it.
Two hours later... and the Greens are at
the same spot. Consider them DONE.
The Reds are trying to shake the Blues...
while the Blues try to risk it all on one final throw of the dice... and
a rock.. down a low route to Kitchen Mesa and the money.
... which may be decided with Daniel
suffering from a leg cramp. He digs deep and continues... "Daughter's
college tuition is up there." Meanwhile, Andrew's side is starting to
ache, but the sight of the briefcase turns him back on. Someone's going
to win the money...
... AND IT'S THE RED TEAM! ANDREW,
BREANNA & CATHY ARE THE WINNERS OF 72 HOURS!
RADIO FOR BRANDON! WE'RE OUTTA HERE!
