Part 5: Boot Camp Day 2
August 14

The fifteen arrived at Boot Camp, but the stay was ever so brief for Dustin Rocho, who sees his shot at Mt. Midoriyama - and the $500,000 K-Swiss endorsement that comes with total victory - go up in flames. Now 14 remain as we continue to thin out the herd to the final 10.


This challenge requires balance and strength.

In this challenge taken from the third stage, four pipes hang from chains. The objective, get from one side to the other in the fastest time. To make it difficult, you will be weighted down by a 40-pound backpack. The slowest time will earn his entire team punishment.

Playing are Alan Connealy (Red Dragons), Jake Smith (Blue Monkeys), and Brent Steffensen (White Tigers).

First is Brent... He clocks in at ... 22.37 seconds.

Jake... schools Brent with a time of 12.56 seconds. He's safe.

Alan needs to beat 22.37 seconds in order to avoid punishment... but he doesn't even finish. The Red Dragons are headed to punishment. They will have to roll 40 tires from Boot Camp of various sizes and weights to the training ground.

TEAM RELAY #2: Roulette Cylinder/Balance Tank

The two obstacles to be tested today are...

- ROULETTE CYLINDER: The opening obstacle of the recent Sasuke Third Stage, you use the spokes of a hanging cylinder to propel yourself forward along a railing. Fall before reaching the red cradle, and you will incur a three-minute penalty. This obstacle took Brian Orosco out last year.
- BALANCE TANK: You will have two chances to ride a rolling log along a rail. Travis Furlanic failed on this obstacle from Stage Two. Fail before reaching the other side, and you will incur a two-minute penalty.

Each team relay will also test endurance. In this relay, you will also be required to carry one of the tires brought by the Red Dragons. Because they are of varying sizes, it's important to choose your tire wisely.

The team with the slowest total team time will send two of their own to the Heavenly Ropes, where one will be eliminated.

Campbell: 1:47
Stratis: 2:23
Rosen: 2:04
McGrath: 1:55
Connealy: 2:11
TOTAL: 10:21 - Making it look EASY.

Wilczewski: 4:51
Rodriguez: 1:59
Steffensen: 5:21
Orosco: 4:48
Dreschel: 1:44
TOTAL: 18:45 - They are on the bubble.

BLUE MONKEYS - Paul Kasemir has elected to run the course twice.
Kasemir: 1:51
Douglass: 2:16
Smith: 1:55
Furlanic: 2:20
Kasemir: 1:52
TOTAL: 10:26 - They are safe by a mile.

... and that means that the White Tigers will have to nominate two to face off on the Heavenly Ropes. Brent volunteers himself to earn a spot on the team. Who'll join him?

HEAVENLY ROPES #1: #2 Chris Wilczewski vs. #10 Brian Orosco

Well.... That was interesting.

Very simple. In the final stage, you race against the clock. Today, you race against each other. Make it to the top, you live to fight another day. Lose... you're going home.

The first up to the top... BRIAN. The Japan vet continues his march toward a sixth trip to the Land of the Rising Sun... Meanwhile, the sun sets on Chris Wilczewski, who sees his dreams - and his warrior tag - engulfed.

Ten spots... 13 Ninjas... The road to total victory continues.
