TKO: Total Knock Out Premiere

  Five people, four zones of obstacles, $50,000 at stake... with a shot at a $100,000 Battle Royale at the end of the season. It's time for a TKO!

The first players:

Barry White Jr.
5th grade teacher
Tracey Parker
Asheville, NC
registered nurse
Jorge Santos Jr.
police officer
Melanie Way
NFL cheerleader
Yesenia "Jeszie" Geronimo
behavior specialist

Each week, five people will challenge the course, which is divided into four zones, each with its own peril - and an opponent looking to capitalize on said peril by launching their own weapons at you.
- Zone 1 is a set of panes to walk on... while being pelted by a ball gun.
- Zone 2 is the "Unbalanced Beam", a wavy balance beam you have to cross while being hit with oversized flying discs.
- Zone 3 is a trio of tipping towers you have to cross while being hit with spike balls.
- Zone 4 is a rotating beam you have to cross while being hit with a set of oversized slammers.

Fall once in a zone, it's a Knockout, and you have to go back and try again. Fall twice, it's a Total Knockout, and you have to move to the next zone with a 1 minute penalty. However, you can gain 90 seconds back by grabbing the Time Capsule in Zone 4.  Time is money in the game of TKO, because you win cash depending on how fast you are to the final bell:

WINNER: $50,000
2nd place: $5000
3rd place: $2500
4th place: $1000
5th place: NOTHING!

In addition, the five winners over the season will return in the finale for the $100,000 Battle Royale.

- Barry: 2 TKOs (Zones 3 & 4) - 6:31
- Tracey: 4 TKOs (All Zones) - 10:15
- Jorge: 4 TKOs (All Zones) - 12:21
- Melanie: 4 TKOs (All Zones) - 15:20
- Jeszie: 2 TKOs (Zones 1 & 4) - 9:16

Congratulations to Barry, who'll return for the Battle Royale at the end of the season.

  THE STORY SO FAR! Kaitlyn wins HOH and wastes no time in burning bridges, putting together plans to backdoor Swaggy C at the next eviction. To that end, Winston & Scottie are nominated for eviction, Faysal & company are told that Winston is the target, and then wait for the Veto. Meanwhile, Rachel's getting trolled IRL, and Tyler is sitting on the Cloud for a couple of months.

Time to pick names for the Veto! HOH Kaitlyn & nominees Winston & Scottie are playing. They draw, respectively, Faysal (Houseguest's choice), Rachel, and Tyler.  Swaggy is screwed... and he doesn't even know it. Kaitlyn tells Faysal that winning the Veto would not be in his best interest, as it would put a target on his back. On the one hand, I get keeping up appearances, but on the other hand.. you were the one who put him up there, so... if Faysal wins and doesn't play the Veto? That's on you, Kaitlyn.

And then the doorbell rings... it's JESSICA GRAF & CODY NICKSON with today's....

VETO COMPETITION #2: showmance! You will have to match up perfect dates with well-known Showmances from the last 20 seasons based on their dating profiles. The fastest will win the Power of Veto.
- Rachel: 5:49
- Scottie: 18:49
- Winston: MAX OUT
- Tyler: 5:29
- Faysal: 6:29
- Kaitlyn: 13:12

Meanwhile, Swaggy is still convinced that Winston is going home. Tyler ensures that he & Kaitlyn have the votes to evict Swaggy and prepares to use the Veto on Scottie. And then Kaitlyn overthinks it before telling him that Angela will be the replacement nominee, never mind that Angela has literally done nothing wrong.

Elsewhere in the house, Rachel gets to hear from her troll... all. The. Time. And Kaitlyn? Now that she's told Haleigh, she has no idea if she wants to play that game at all. Confounding matters further? Haleigh tells Rockstar. Time for plan B as we get a grautitous shot of Orwell the Owl.

VETO MEETING #2: The plan goes off without a hitch, Scottie is saved and Swaggy C is put up on the block, but thanks to Kaitlyn playing both sides, she's gone from having 14 friends to having ZERO friends. How she responds will factor in her game down the line.

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta"
playing for Ericka
Ant-Man & the Wasp
Keyshia Cole
Stevie J
Chanel West Coast
Mona Scott-Young
New York
Miss Nikki Baby
Yung Joc
Safaree Samuels

ROUND 1 pays $1000 to tic-tac-toe. Tommie misses the block on Joc, which otherwise would've given Gunplay the three-in-a-row with Keyshia, Mona, and Joc. But you know the rules by now. No win on a misjudge, you have to earn it yourself Then... Time's called. Gunplay wins, $2600 to $1100.

PICK THAT DOUGH for $25,000: Shedonna goes with TIP, Mona, and Safaree. TIP had... $10. Mona has... $25,000! Safaree has $100 for a final total of $27,710!

In the nightcap (featuring TIP, Karrueche Tran, Michael Blackson, Annie Ilonzeh, Erykah Badu, Ta'Rhonda Jones, DC Young Fly, Tamar Braxton, and Gary Owen), it's a battle of the network with Ridiculousness co-host Steelo Brim playing for Taquise against Are You The One host Terrence J playing for Chelsy. Terrence wins $3500 to $2200.

PICK THAT DOUGH for a Postmates luxury shopping spree: Chelsy picks Michael, Erykah & DC. Michael has... $1. Erykah has... $10. DC has... $100. So she ends up with $3611, if not the lowest, then damn near close. Ta'Rhonda had the shopping spree.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Monkey, See?; I Can Name That Person in 2 Words, Classic Movie: the Video Game, Business & Industry, First Names in the Dictionary, "Little" Nursery Rhyme Characters

Wes starts with $200 Classic Movie: The Video Game. At the TV timeout, George is way out in front with $5200. Wes has $1600 to Stel's $1000.

Wes finds the Daily Double under $1000 First Names in the Dictionary. He fronts $2000 on this: first names in the dictionary that are synonyms for a Christmas song include Carol & this male name. "What is Noel?" RIGHT for $3800! He ends up in the lead thanks to a late-game rally with $7800. George has $6600, and Stel on $1000 has the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: It Happened in 2005, TV Shows by Family, Greek Mythology, Our Nation's Capital Before & After, Black Women Authors, Lexicon Valley

.. with $400 Greek Mythology. Stel finds the first Daily Double under $800 It Happened in 2005. After a line ruling that gave Wes a lead of $8400, Stel bets $3000 on this: this web-based mapping service introduced in 2005 gives a satellite view of Paris, Tokyo or your own block. "What is Google Maps?" ... is ultimately accepted, but the response they were looking for was Google Earth. Wes finds the other under $1600 Black Women Authors. He fronts $2000 on this: this British author of "White Teeth" also write "Swing Time", a story of 2 childhood friends who dream of being dancers. "Who is Zadie Smith?" RIGHT for $19,400! He ends up with $21,400 to $12,200 for George. Stel is on $11,200.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "From Books to Broadway": "Son of a Witch" & "A Lion Among Men" are sequels to the book that inspired this musical. Correct response: what is "Wicked"?

They wouldn't mention the fourth book, because "Out of Oz" would be a dead giveaway. Wes didn't have to do much. He didn't, and he wins another $24,401, bringing his three-day total of $51,196.

Two weeks ago, Alecia couldn't score a winning goal in the Masterchef World Cup Street Food Challenge, so she was given the red card. Now we're down to 18... and gone to the chapel, apparently.

TEAM CHALLENGE #2: Season 7 winner Shaun O'Neale is getting married, and he & his fiancee are having the final 18 cater the reception. They want a scallop app and a duck breast entree.

RED TEAM (Juni): Cesar, Mark, Farhan, Gerron, Samantha, Ryan, Chelsea, Emily
BLUE TEAM (Julia): Lindsay, SJ, Taylor, Ashley, Ralph, Bowen, Matt, Shanika

And then... a TWIST! A captain swap! Juni will be the captain of the BLUE team, while Julia will head the RED team.

Calamity ensues. But one team comes back from it...

WINNER: RED TEAM. After that, the judges decide to save Shanika and Taylor from the oncoming Pressure Test.

... except there isn't going to be one. Instead, Ashley and Juni are called as the Bottom 2.
