Stunt #1: Sub Dive Contestants would have to dive into 55 degree water, swim 7 feet down, and retrieve glow sticks from the underside of the sub. The two men and the two women to collect the most glow sticks on one breath would advance to the next... (more) round. The others would be eliminated. Stunt #2: Cricket Crunch Contestants would each have to throw a dart at a dartboard with numbers ranging from 1 to 8. They were not told until afterward that the number they hit would represent the amount of live crickets they would have to eat. Everyone who ate their designated number of crickets within the time limit (one minute per cricket) would advance to the finals. Stunt #3: Speed Drop Contestants would be hung by their ankles over 130 feet high and dropped down a zip line at 60 miles per hour. As they went over a large target, they would have to drop a beanbag. The contestant whose beanbag landed closest to the bull's-eye would win the $50,000.
