Main Challenge: Everybody has to follow a yellow rope while on a canyon to the finish line while teams of two dig up & answer four questions along the way. If this is completed in 1 1/2 hours, a five-bound bonus will be awarded at the WI; otherwise, a five-pound penalty will be incurred.

Guess: 481- NO

Guess: True- YES
Austin & Courtney: At the first WI, how much dud Arthur say he weighed at his heaviest- 638 or 646?
