The CW has decided to warm us up for the upcoming season of "America's Next Top Model" with this new reality competition series by Sam Raimi. Jay Bienstock, who has been a producer for both "Survivor" and "The Apprentice", is also one of the producers. Also, former "Russian Roulette" producer Gunnar Wettenberg created the show! These 13 contestants will compete for a top prize of $66,666:

We start out in the Louisana Bayou. There is an off-camera host for this show (known as "The Mastermind".

Task #1: One person must stay in the house everybody's been in alone. The other 12 contestants then are divided into six teams of two.

1. Erica & Ted
2. Ryan & Melyssa
3. Adam & Laura
4. Rodney & Leah
5. Show & Steffanie
6. Kelly & Lauren

Cody decides to be the lone wolf in the house. One person from each team must then walk down the road to a place where they will be strapped in without notice.

1. Leah
2. Adam
3. Lauren
4. Ryan
5. Show
6. Erica

Task #2: Each team is given a video camera and must go into the forest and retrieve their kidnapped teammate before getting out of the forest. The last team to return faces elimination.

Since Cody decided to stay at home base, he has immunity this week.

1. Laura & Adam
2. Ted & Erica
3. Melyssa & Ryan
4. Rodney & Leah

The last team to be safe in this challenge is...











...Steffanie & Show, meaning Kelly & Lauren are going to the Execution Round; one contestant will be "killed off" there.

EXECUTION #1: These elimination challenges will take place at the end of the road. Here, after taking off their blindfolds, Kelly & Lauren are being forced to geting buried alive. After that happens, the first lady to get out of their coffin remains in the game.

And that one is...













Kelly
Lauren


...Kelly! Lauren's the first one gone on this show.
