  • The Champions wonder if their rogue player, Wes, is genuine when he approaches them with a peace treaty. Demoralized from back-to-back losses, the Challengers vow to take home a victory at the "Repo Race" challenge. Two players' spots in the game are extinguished during the "Burnout" Ruins. An unlikely romance is sparked between two Champions.
  • Teamwork becomes essential at the "Swing On By" challenge, where one player injures herself in an unexpected way and is forced to leave the game with a medical emergency. When both teams conspire to pit two best friends against each other in the "Shadow Fighter" Ruins, chaos erupts and the house is turned upside down forever.
  • The Champions become paranoid that they could lose in the end if one worrisome team member fails to pull their weight. Finally, the Champions and the Challengers take part in a nail-biting finale—a grueling race for the $160,000 prize to be split evenly among them.
  • Dunbar struggles with being the last remaining man on the Challenger team and must fight for survival in the game. Johnny contemplates drastic measures to get rid of one of his own teammates. Players battle in the last Ruins to secure a spot in the finale.

One trouble-making player causes chaos for his team when he tries to throw the first challenge. Later, two men and two women enter the Ruins, where they must fight for survival and who ever wins will keep the money in their bank account and remain in the competition. The loser will be eliminated and any money earned will go to the winning competitor's bank account.
