"The Superstars" 6/30

To start, we learn that Terrell Owens & Joanna Krupa have been given a second chance because Jennifer Capriati re-aggrivated a past injury during last week's Obstacle Course, forcing her and David Charvet to withdraw from the competition.

Main Event #1: In the "Sand Dash", the teams race on a 100m sand track with batons. At the midway mark in each heat, the first member of each team must hand off their baton to their teammates so that they can finish the heat for them. Any team that hands off their baton outside the handing zone is disqualified. Both members of each team must go first and second three times apiece during this event. The last place team in each heat is eliminated from the event. The last duo standing earns 100 points.

Elimination order:

1. Robert Horry & Estella Warren (30)
2. Jeff Kent & Ali Landry (40)
3. Brandi Chastain & Julio Iglesias, Jr. (50; photo finish between them and Lisa & Dan)
4. Lisa Leslie & Dan Cortese (60; Dan suffers a hamstring injury at the end of this heat)
5. Bode Miller & Paige Hemmis (70; both members false started in each of their heats!)

In each heat, per international track & field rules, anybody who false starts results in a warning given to the entire field. If any team false starts twice in a row, they are eliminated on the spot.

The winners of the hundred points are...












...well, what do you know- Terrell & Joanna! That means that Kristi Leskinen & Maksim Chermovskiy get the 80 points.

We later find out that Dan Cortese is unable to continue, so David Charvet becomes Lisa's new partner.

Main Event #2: This is the "Water Leap". Each teammate must make the long jump into a pool of water. The celebrities always go first. Before they go, each teammate must set a target distance they think they can clear. If somebody fails to clear that mark, their jump is disqualified.
