Two pairs of contestants were kept awake for 24 hours while studying all of the information that would be asked of them in the following rounds. They started with the Rant, where for 30 seconds each, the team would rant about an article they read the day before, without stopping, studdering or saying "um." all while running in a giant hamster wheel.
Next they had to match-up signs or pictures with whatever they belonged to, like the picture of a moon to the planet that has it, all the while answering questions from "Cram's big doumb book of stupid lists."
Finally one member of the team had to answer riddles while the other person peddled an exceize cycle, or a rowing machine, or blew into an anamometer ( a device that measures wind speed) or drink shots of Dr. Damneerkiltum's sour lemonade.
In the bonus round, temas finally get a chance to sleep, but should stay awake as Ms. Pickwick read to them the answeres in the final round, where they had to get al four feet off the ground on a small stump, or a balncing beam.
