Wipeout: Tonight's Qualifier features the Buoy Run, the Sucker Punch, the Big Balls and the Field Goal Swing. Notables:
Erwin Milan: 3:17.9 (five Wiepouts)
Jessica Bertoni: 1:52.8 (two WOs)

Sandy Bowles: 10:08.3 (all-time worst, I think)

John Curtis: 2:11.4
Chris Kinyon: 1:39.5
Timothy Ton: 1:49.1
Joining everybody listed (except Sandy and Erwin) on the Sweeper are Tyler Jorgenson, Lili Asvar, Yolanda Ezell, Toni Robinson, Christa Wiktorski and Matthew Thies.
Sweeper: On top of it are some smoke-releasing fake crows everybody needs to jump over.
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.
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.)
