Episode 3.6 - Couples
July 6

Another set of 12 couples are ready to take on the biggest, baddest, most padded obstacle course in America.


Tonight, the Qualifier consists of...

- The Blob Launch: a giant pillow set to maximum height.
- The Sucker Punch: one wall, multiple punching gloves, a world of hurt.
- The Big Balls: Swinging Motivator is back in full force.
- The Biker Bars: A crazy-moving platform with balls and poles.
- The Shape-Shifter: trampoline yourself through one of the three holes in the wheel spinnie of doom!

Remember, it's the fastest six couples that move on.

First up, Molly Chamberlain & Michael Fell, married, are a can-do taekwondo team, and they can do anything, especially busting blocks together. Both of them get launched by the Blob, while the Suckerpunch... sucker punches them. He can do it, she can do it, why not me? That's the thing, they CAN'T do. They swim to a time of 5:41.6

Next are Robert & Ashley de Otero, newlyweds. Ashley's plan... bully everyone. The course ends up bullying her. And Ashley is really doing nothing for him. Andy & Miranda Signore, married, are next. Andy is a little bit slow. Back at the top, dating couple Daniel Tcruz & Sarah Fernandez love to wrestle each other. The blob makes the world go round.

Andrew Avery & Amy White are next. Amy neck farts. Andrew... is a human beatbox. So musical, they could complete the course in perfect harmony... or not. Robert House is going to be launched by Traci Martin. They're... divorced. But together. Not married though.

Robin Burton & Stephen Netter are last up. Robin's flashing "wedding gang signs", as in she has no ring. After five years. Will she have one after the qualifier? Robin commits to the Big Balls, the only one to do so today. She's a keeper. And so is this time of 5:23.

On a ten-foot high platform, the players must negotiate their way through a platform cross while avoiding the Sweeper arms. There are three green planks to enter, one red one to exit. As this is a couples episode, only a completed team will count. The first three teams will move on.

And did we mention a geyser?

Robin's the first to make the traverse into the finish. Second is Michael, third is Amy. Fourth is Robert. Fifth is Robert. Still no couples. And finally, representatives from all six teams are on the other side. Who will join them?

Now, there are four bases. We start at the Dizzy Dummy, then round to the Mound while avoiding the business end of the bat. Next, down the Bouncing Baseline to second base. Slidewalk to third, then a jump into the tank to go all the way. Two innings. Winners of each inning go to the Wipeout Zone!

Robert H and Steve are the first to head home... and Robert D finishes it for the men... and Robin wins the first inning for the "I Don'ts"

Second inning. And Ashley is refusing to move until the Cubs win the pennant. Then she actually makes a move to first. The men are at home, just waiting for the ladies... and it's Traci! By an inch!

Love is about to pay off...

Rebuilt from the ground up is the world's most dangerous obstacle course... the Wipeout Zone! Tonight...

- The Dreadmill Launch
- The Gut Buster: A half-dozen of hydraulic blocks.
- The Sinistairs: three sweepers as you climb a spinning spiral staircase
- The Gauntlet: this week, it's the Crankshaft, the Blades of Fury, and the Beater-Totter.

First, the two women will lead off the Wipeout Zone. The men will have to wait it out, because no one sees the Zone until they run the Zone. Fastest combined time wins.

First is Traci Martin. She makes a good launch into the Zone, but has a world of trouble on the Gut Busters. Third time is the charm. One step onto the Sinistairs and good night. Second time puts her in a compromising position... and she's absolutely spent. Third time the charm again. Crankshaft.. easy. Blades... hard. She quits and earns the maximum time allowable under Couples format, 20 minutes.

Next is Robin Burton. She utilizes a low-risk strategy, but it's paying off. First run on the Sinistairs is heinous. Second... even more so. Sweeper arms taking her out twice. Making a great time going into the Gauntlet. She gets hit hard on the Crankshaft. Second time gets through. Blades of Fury does her in, as she gets the automatic 20.

So it's going to come down to the men. First up is the Wishy-Washy Robert. He plays the Gut Busters close to the ground... Pays off. Same with the Sinistairs. Crankshaft nails him, though. Mad dash... pow. Fourth attempt slide... and good. He clocks in... with an official time at 15:19.

Stephen Netter will have to beat that to win. Great jump into the Zone. Steve shows no signs of slowing in the Gut Busters. He has 11 minutes to capture the cash at the Gauntlet. Steve finally gets the timing down for that, but the Blades of Fury wipes him out. Twice. That is all she wrote for him and ROBERT HOUSE & TRACI MARTIN WIN THE TITLE AND $50,000!

Next time, Henson unleashes an experiment in pain as we return to the 24-player format. Until then... good night... and Big Balls.
