It turns out that Antonio is around to help promote the NFL's childhood obesity program, Play60. He recommends engaging in household chores such as raking and snow shoveling to help burn excess calories and keep active. As I have learned recently: snow shoveling kills. I practically needed an oxygen mask after hacking away at only 8-10 inches! Aaaaaaand, that sounds something I'd say after visiting Dolvett's Dungeon. Anyway! This week's challenge is broken down into four quarters, which will test speed, agility, strength, and a combination of all three in the final quarter. The team with the fastest time overall wins a Play60 Super School visit. This means that a favorite NFL player will come to the winner's school, and the school will get $5,000 from Play60. In sad news, Pam hasn't been cleared to compete in this challenge, so Danni and Nathan will have to represent the White Team on their own. The Red Team is leaving the final quarter to Joe, based largely on his former football greatness.
The first quarter tests speed, and the contestants will compete in a shuttle race, which involves running to a series of cones, touching them, and running back. Alex represents the Blue Team, Danni is for the White, and Francelina competes for the Red Team. And Danni wins the first quarter! Alex is in second place, and Francelina in third. The various times are posted, and there's only six seconds separating first and third place, so it's still anyone's game. The second quarter tests agility, and Danni competes again for White, Cate for Red, and Gina for Blue. The ladies run through the agility course, and Danni once again wins! Cate comes in second, with Gina taking third place. White is in first place at 1:34, Red has 1:41, and Blue holds third also with 1:41.
The third quarter is about strength, and involves the thing where you hit that fake football guy and drag him for a while. Does this make any sense to anyone? Nate plays for White, Jeff for Blue, and Lisa for Red. Jeff wins this quarter for the Blue Team, while White takes second. Poor Lisa is really struggling with this one, but finally crosses the finish line with much encouragement. Triumph of the spirit! After three quarters, the White Team is holding to the lead by only four seconds. The Red Team is pretty far behind now, in a distant third place.
And so we have reached the fourth quarter, which tests speed, agility and strength altogether. Nate is going again for the White Team, former football player Joe plays for Red, and Mike is going for the Blue Team. Mike misses a box in his ropes agility course and has to start over, which loses him some time. Joe really rocks this challenge, coming in first by quite a bit. Nate finishes second, and though he's having a hard time going back through the ropes course, Mike finishes strong for Blue. And the winner is...the White Team! Sunny gets the Play60 Super School visit and a $5,000 grant for her school. The school that hosted this challenge also gets a grant!
