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.
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.
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.
