Part 7: Boot Camp Day 3
August 21

Last week, boot camp began as the finalists begin their training for the grueling obstacles of Mount Midoriyama. The road to Japan ended early for Dustin Rocho and Chris Wilczewski, leaving 13 to compete for the 10 spots on Team USA.

The White Tigers relieve some pressure by building a fort. They're going to need to be at ease because in the AM we get....

PRESSURE CHALLENGE #3: Bungee Rope Climb

This challenge requires phenomenal grip strength. Playing are Drew for the Tigers, Travis Furlanic for the Monkeys, and David for the Dragons. That's right, it's the uncle and the nephew with Drew in the middle.

This challenge is directly from Mt. Midoriyama. It has never been attempted because no one has ever made it this far. There are five bells among a line of ropes that go from longest to shortest. The object, keep ringing bells until you fall off. Fewest rings faces punishment.

First is David Campbell. He rings 19.

Next up, Drew Dreschel. He needs to beat 19. He gets... to tie. The tiebreaker is speed... David had it in 1:23, Drew.... 1:21. White Tigers are safe.

Red Dragons on the bubble as Travis Furlanic heads to the starting blocks. Travis gets... 16. The Blue Monkeys face punishment again. This time, you have to untangle a 400-foot rope from a tree and carry it to the training ground.

Meanwhile, in training, the Red Dragons struggle to grip the grip obstacles. Injuries begin to mount, from Ryan's calf to Alan's elbow.

TEAM RELAY #3: Double Salmon Ladder/Unstable Bridge/Warped Wall

The three obstacles to be tested on today are...

- DOUBLE SALMON LADDER: Like Mt. Midoriyama, there are two rungless ladders that must be traversed.

Three minutes of penalty time will be assessed for failure to complete the Double Salmon Ladder or the Unstable Bridge. Two minutes will be assessed for failure to complete the Warped Wall.

In this relay, you will also be required to carry one of the bundles of rope brought by the Blue Monkeys. The ropes are of various sizes and weights, so choose carefully. Strategy is important.

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

The Blues and Whites are short a man, so one from each will run twice. Those two: Brent Steffensen from the White Tigers and Travis Furlanic from the Blue Monkeys.

Furlanic: 3:42
Kasemir: 3:38
Douglass: 6:06
Smith: 3:55
Furlanic: 4:00
TOTAL: 21:22

Campbell: 1:35
Stratis: 1:39
Rosen: 6:21
McGrath: 1:33
Connealy: 6:59
TOTAL: 18:08 - SAFE

Steffensen: 3:49
Orosco: 1:44
Rodriguez: 1:30
Dreschel: 4:13
Steffensen: 1:28
TOTAL: 12:45 - SAFE

The Blue Monkeys are again facing elimination. Brandon volunteers himself again, while it's a stalemate between Travis Furlanic (who's been slacking off) and Jake Smith. Jake steps up to once again prove that he is deserving to be in Boot Camp.

... But in a twist, the White Tigers will decide ultimately who will face each other on the Heavenly Ropes. The rationale: sometimes outside opinion matters, and they want the best 10 through to Japan.

HEAVENLY ROPES #3: #8 Travis Furlanic vs. #11 Brandon Douglass

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... TRAVIS. Second time not so lucky as Brandon Douglass turns in his warrior tags. His road to Sasuke ends here. But he knows what he has to do for next time.

Ten spots... 12 Ninjas... The road to total victory continues.
