Tough As Nails Episode 1 And 2 Recap

In the first episode, the contestants are assigned two challenges in order to determine who can pick their teams. The first task involves pushing wheelbarrows and loading them with sacks of concrete. The players then need to push the loaded carts through a lane among the four narrow, zig-zag pathways. The ones who manage to successfully finish loading and moving 24 sacks are the winners. Danny is the winner in this round, followed closely by Lee. The next task involves laying bricks and points are deducted if there are errors in the spacing etc. Luis, a scaffold builder, wins this challenge.

In the second episode, we first have a team challenge — which requires the participants to lay rails so the group can pull a caboose over 100 feet. The winning team gets $12,000 as a prize, which they can split among themselves. In the individual challenge, the players punch in and shovel thrice one’s body weight into a hopper. The one who scores the least needs to perform in an overtime task. Unfortunately, we have an elimination in this round and it is Linnett.
