It's the final showdown between The Bad Asses and Good Guys for a chance to take home big money.
After a fantastic win during last week?s Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Inferno 3, the Good Guys? confidence level has soared. But approaching the final challenge, they know it?s all or nothing! At this point, it?s anybody?s game. Although the Good Guys have won most of the Infernos, they seem to be trailing behind the Bad Asses when it comes to the team challenges. Strategizing will play a major role in the final challenge, and both teams expect to pull out all the stops in order to bank $150,000. But will the rift between Susie and Paula cause the Good Guys to lose focus?
After the teams get the clue for their final challenge, they gear up and put their game faces on. The Bad Asses and Good Guys meet up with host T.J. Lavin for the "Big Five" challenge, where the teams will be given oversize puzzle pieces and then race along a path with a series of checkpoints. The checkpoints will serve as a location to assemble the puzzles in order to advance toward the next checkpoint. In all, the teams will construct five puzzles, each being one of the Big Five animals in South Africa: lion, leopard, water buffalo, elephant and rhinoceros.
Heading into the challenge, the Bad Asses seem overly confident, and with good reason. Unlike the Good Guys, they have a united team and a positive attitude. Meanwhile, the Good Guys continue to be every man or woman for themselves -- hint, hint, Susie and Cara. But confidence isn?t the only thing that will push these teams to victory.
The Bad Asses and Good Guys both start the race really determined, picking up puzzle pieces and heading off boldly down the path. But because of the puzzle?s jumbo size, it's hard to run, causing the Good Guys to fall behind the Bad Asses. When they realize they are leading, the Bad Asses step up their game and reach their first checkpoint. They assemble the puzzle pieces quickly and head off down the path toward the next checkpoint. As the Good Guys lose momentum, Alton keeps the team?s motivation alive. He encourages them to keep a level head and work as a group. After all, this challenge is worth $150,000!
Hurling through the sand, past rocks and across water, the Bad Asses and Good Guys are all drained but face their biggest challenge yet: hauling puzzle pieces on a stretcher. Think it?s easy? Guess again. The teams have almost double the amount of pieces they originally started with, and must quickly reach their checkpoint. Oh, and another thing: there are pieces along the path that must be picked up as well! The Good Guys remain behind for the majority of the challenge but surprisingly catch up to the Bad Asses in the end, causing them to step it up a notch. Remember, it?s still anybody?s game!
It's neck and neck, and the pressure's on as the teams try to stay calm and collected. But just as the Good Guys complete their final puzzle, the Bad Asses sprint toward the finish line! Knowing what's on the line, the Good Guys are right behind them, gunning for victory as well!
Ultimately, the Bad Asses reach the finish line first and T.J. congratulates them on their win. The Bad Asses beat out the Good Guys and bank $150,000 into their account, totaling $240,000 for the team! Each Bad Ass will walk away $40,000 richer and everyone will have a lifetime of memories from Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Inferno 3.
