The challenges kicked off with “Flop It” a game which requires skill, accuracy and a lot of patience; this had all 12 teams battling it out for their first £100. The teams stepped up to face the challenge one by one and took their shot, starting as they meant to go on and fighting to win! Throughout the first challenge many lives were lost and little money was gained and each team began to feel the pressure of The Pressure Zone. The teams then split into their first rotations which saw teams take on Hurdle, Bounce In, Tier Drop, Descent, Step Up, Index Landing Strip and Hole in One. All teams most definitely were feeling the pressure as the competitive spirit took over and they they battled to keep their lives and earn as much money as possible.
The teams fought their way through the challenges and confidence in the teams took a hit when it became clear to see that tasks which seem very straightforward aren’t, in fact, as easy as they seem once the pressure takes over! As team members began to buckle under pressure and tensions heightened, laughing fits erupted throughout the room as the teams began to let their hair down and face the challenges head on, whilst, of course, laughing at their team mates along the way!
