Each team tries to solve a large wall puzzle by using knowledge about fellow contestants in the series premiere of this reality-competition show featuring 14 contestants living in a house rigged with cameras.
The first elimination occurs. Then, the contestants go to great heights in a game called "Ruffle Your Tail Feathers," which requires coordination.
After the second elimination of the remaining contestants, the players compete in a physical game of "Triple Threat," where two opposing teams compete against each other as they perform tasks of America's choice.
A third player leaves the game, and those remaining play "Lab-A-Doodle," a game requiring balance, control and teamwork.
A fourth player exits. Later, the contestants play "Choose Your Weapon," a game that involves breaking glass windmills.
Following the elimination of either Holly or Andrea, the remaining players participate in a game called "Spinner Code," where each team has to use a code to obtain images in order to solve a series of picture puzzles. The winning team - by virtue of the fastest time - wins a special prize, and it's up to the team captain to decide who gets it: either his teammates or himself. Later, two new contestants will be put into limbo, and it's up to the viewers to decide who is voted back into the house and who is sent home permanently.
After another player is eliminated, the remaining contestants participate in a challenge involving a twisted Skee-Ball ramp.
Two eliminated players return, and contestants receive enticing offers to swap places with them.
Contestants participate in a challenge called "Peeping Players!" which involves rappelling down an apartment building and using memory recall to answer questions about the decor they just observed inside the apartments.
In the first-season finale, the $250,000 winner is announced after the remaining contestants solve four puzzles in a game that involves leaping back and forth across a chasm while harnessed to a rope.
