Mid-South Final
June 18

Four regions down, and we're on pace to create the strongest field of challengers to Mount Midoriyama on record. So far, 60 have earned a trip to Vegas to try their hand at being the first American to scale the monolith, but we still have room for 40. Not after the hour as another 15 advance to the course in Vegas.

Fair Park, Cotton Bowl, Dallas

Today's Final Course consists of...

- Quad Steps
- Log Grip
- Bridge of Blades
- Jump Hang
- Rope Junction
- Warped Wall
- SALMON LADDER: Use your momentum to traverse the one rung on this ladder.
- LAMP GRASPER: New for season 4, use your hands to grasp through a network of 20 suspended globes.
- CARGO CLIMB: One big cargo net, 45 feet.

The fifteen fastest and furthest will go to the Vegas final. And we're all doing it under the lights. Paul Kasemir, who clocked in at 53 seconds, goes last. Up first...

- 18) Todd Stair (23, Norman, OK, mechanical engineer) - FAIL Jump Hang. Boomer goes boom.
- 22) Miguel "Jenin" Gonzalez (22, Fort Worth, gymnastics & parkour coach) - FAIL Salmon Ladder
- 24) Angel Flores (25, El Paso, TX, gymnastics coach) - FAIL Warped Wall
- 11) Alan Connealy (32, Broomfield, CO, chiropractor) - FAIL Lamp Grasper

Two more competitors are stopped by the course. Luke Cash cashed out on the Salmon Ladder, while Justin D'avila went lights out on the Lamp Grasper.

Finishing the course: Nathaniel Spencer and Tremayne Dortch. In the Hot Seat: Todd Stair.

- 9) George "Woody" Dunwoody (32, Thornton, CO, car stereo installer) - FAIL Rope Junction. He did complete the Jump Hang, so now he's in the hot seat.
- 3) Brandon Douglass (23, Boulder, CO, parkour coach) - COMPLETE (2:29). And Woody gets chopped.

Jaret Salas and Kevin Klein both complete the course in under 3 minutes, putting Angel Flores on the bubble.
