DEBUT: "Escape Routes"

Remember, former U.S. "Temptation" host Rossi Morreale has that same position for this show. The contesti:

Iris Hill and Terrence Terrell (L.A.)- She's a dance instructor, while he's a college admissions representative
Bre and Tara (Boulder, CO)- Bre's a makeup entrepreneur, while Tara's an advertising executive
Drew & Derek (Seattle)- Musicians
Wilson & Sharon Monterro (brother/sister from Tampa)- He's a boxer, whereas she's a radio personality
Ross & Brett (Venice Beach)- A pair of online bloggers who frequently post videos on YouTube
Chekesha & Tiffany (NYC)- A couple of models, NCAA Division I female basketball players & best friends originally from Houston, TX

The big winners after six episodes will not only each win their own redesigned 2013 Ford Escape, but $50K apiece as well. To help each of these teams, they'll get their own social online network to help them out in their stunts. iJUSTINE is the co-host.

Opening Challenge: The social networks are being asked to give their teams as many valid five-letter words as possible.

First Urban Challenge: Using their Escape's MapQuest service, they need to meet Rossi on top of a roof at 737 Terminal Street in L.A to play a life-sized version of "hanging with friends" from zynga. One teammate will be harnessed to a swing near the edge of the building, while their partners try to guess the letters of their opponents' designated words one letter at a time. Each right letter means that balloon in their mystery word pops and the player hanging will be pushed further back. Once a team's word is guessed, they're eliminated from the challenge and the designated player will drop about 100 feet to the ground.

At least for this challenge, finishing a challenge in last place will get you NO points. Each successive position's worth 20 points more than the one below it (so first's worth 100 & fifth's worth 20).

Interactive Challenge: Put on a live streaming talent show within 20 minutes.

Escape Challenge: At Fullerton Airport's Air Combat USA base, the six teams battle it out in a one-hit dogfight tournament. In the first round, the team w/ the fastest winning time will earn a bye to the final round.
