Stunt #1: Dog Attack Contestants would have to fire a starter's pistol and run to a finish line in a padded suit. After they fired the pistol, a trained attack dog would attempt to take them down. They would have a minute to cross the finish line... (more). In the event that not everyone completed the stunt, the four contestants to get closest to the finish line would advance to the next round. Stunt #2: Snake Pit Contestants would have to lie in a pit and be covered with 24 snakes, including a 16-foot boa constrictor. Everyone who stayed in the pit for three minutes would advance to the finals. If anyone was bit, they would automatically advance. Stunt #3: Beam Walk Contestants would have to walk across a 6½-inch wide balance beam over 100 feet high, retrieve a flag, walk back across, and plant the flag. The contestant to do this the fastest would win the $50,000.
