Elimination order:

1. Matthew
2. Lili
3. Toni

Taking the ten $100 bills is...Robert!

Dreadmill: Contestants have to stay on this for as long as they can while avoiding a big, swinging wrecking ball.

John: 1:36.97

Robert: 1:33.23

Chris: 21.35

Charles, John and Robert automatically go to the Wipeout Zone.

The last spot goes to Jessica.

Wipeout Zone: At the water slide, contestants could use a form of transportation to go down the slide if they wanted. The launch pads are more difficult than ever, as shaving cream is falling down there.

Robert (Sled): 16:49.44

John (Innertube): He doesn't get past the Spinner in time.

Jessica (Nothing): Same result as John.

How about Charles?...








...using an air matress at the start, he wins the money at 6:22.56! Robert leaves with $1,000.

(Additional notes: The wall that preceded the Spinner had a waterfall pouring over it; also, most of the pits on the Wipeout Zone course had shaving cream instead of water.)
