Final Challenge: Along a one-mile road track, there are nine puzzle pieces. One member of each team has to ride a bike and collect/bring back one puzzle piece at a time. After they've solved their puzzle, there will be a lock combination number on it (which happens to be their starting weight all the way back from when they first weighed in) and they'll have to run all the way to their box and unlock its pounds before running all the way back to the start/finish line. The first team to do all of this automatically qualifies for the final weigh-in and gets their $10,000 entry fee back.
Midway in this challenge, Tricia falls off and SUFFERS MULTIPLE INJURIES, so the Grading Curves decide to WITHDRAW from this challenge and Melissa does some exercise with their puzzle blocks.
