Tough As Nails Episode 4 Recap

In the 4th episode, the focus is on Michelle S Kiddy and Lee Marshall who had lost in the group challenge when their team, the Savage Crew could not bag a win. But they were hopeful that they would be able to regain their place in the individual challenges. In episode 4, the individual task requires the participants to irrigate a field. Here, the participants are paired up in teams of two. Kelly “Murph” Murphy is given the chance of picking the duos as he was the highest scorer in the previous round. However, as luck could have it, Michelle and Lee end up as the bottom two.

Michelle tells that she has no wish to go against Lee but promises to play a fair game. Melissa Burns and Linnett Key are already ousted from the individual challenge and Michelle wants to make the women proud. The task at hand is to untie some knots that are holding together a haystack. The players then need to pile them up so that it reaches a height to ring the bell that is on the top.

As the timer goes off, Michelle and Lee start pilling up the haystacks. Luckily for Michelle, she wins the challenge and this means that Lee is ousted from the individual challenge. Michelle had been considered a setback because of her age but she has always been able to prove that she is a tough competitor. A happy Michelle admits that “this is a victory for women”.
