Joe gave the remaining male players an added incentive since they were both automatically in the next round. The guy who got the most flags the fastest would win one thousand dollars. David was next and made his first high-speed leap. Ultimately, he completed all six flag transfers. His final time was two minutes and seven seconds. If Skip could beat that time, and transfer all six flags, he would win the thousand bucks. Skip, a professional fisherman, was no stranger to water. But is anyone really familiar with jumping from one speedboat to another while they're in motion? Skip did a great job and it came down to the last flag and only seconds before David's time to beat approached. Skip missed the victory by two seconds.
Molinee, a Las Vegas dancer, was up first for the ladies. She got all six flags and tied David's time of 2:07! Lindsay was next. Lindsay got off to a good start, but took a hard hit on the second flag. On the final jump, Lindsay had trouble finding the final flag, which had blown off of the main platform -- but was still attached to it. Finally, she found it and finished in two minutes and nine seconds. Either Dawn or Lindsay would be going home. However, in Dawn's attempt to beat Lindsay's time she mistimed her third jump and plunged into the lake. Lindsay would advance.
For the second stunt, players arrived at a picturesque vineyard and quickly lost their appetites. Joe unveiled the Fear Factor method of making wine. Players would each step into a vat filled with over 50,000 nightcrawlers and start stomping. As they stomped worm "juice" would escape the vat via a funnel and fill a wine glass. Once the glass was filled, the player would have to drink the glass as soon as possible. Molinee was up first and was soon squishing her bare feet over thousands of chunky worms. She filled her glass quickly and emptied it with minimal gagging. Her final time was 1:21. Skip climbed into the vat next. Skip stomped like a Riverdance performer and filled the glass in a little over a minute. He gulped it down for a final time of 1:15. David went next, after admitting that he'd eaten worms once before! David's technique, a little more eggbeater than Riverdance, filled the glass a little faster than the others. His final time was 1:08 - which guaranteed him a spot in the finals. Lindsay would have to beat Molinee's time to advance. Lindsay tried to combine all the previous stomps into one, super-effective one. She filled the glass very quickly and with three gulps she had finished in only 49 seconds! Molinee was out.
Day three kicked off on a lonely stretch of desert highway. And you know what that meant…truck stunt! Two eighteen-wheelers would race side-by-side while each player balanced between the two massive trucks and transferred flags from the side of one trailer to the other. Whoever could transfer the most flags in the fastest time without falling would win the $50,000. Skip straddled the semis first. With only a narrow edge to hold him, Skip reached up and grabbed flags as he moved down the length of the semis. If the trucks moved too close to each other, he would be crushed. If they moved too far apart, he would lose his balance and fall. Skip got 11 flags in 55 seconds. It would have been all 12, but one flew off after he thought he had transferred it. Would that cost him the game? Lindsay went next, hoping for 12 flags in 50 seconds. Lindsay got off to a slower start and seemed to have trouble balancing. All she had to do was plant all 12 flags to knock Skip out…and she did it. Her final time, 1:12. If David also got all 12 flags, but did it faster, he would win. David got going, while Lindsay sat on pins and needles. His final time was 1:09! David was the new Fear Factor champ!
