FormatEdit

During each Challenge, teams will compete in order to become the Power Team, who will have the ability to place one team of their decision into the Arena. The other couple going into the Arena will be that day's Challenge losers. Once in the Arena, a team must decide one pair to compete, and have the potential to go home with no money. The losing pair in the Arena will go home, and leave their team short two players. Teams can compete with only two players, and have potential to win the game.

GameplayEdit

Challenge GamesEdit

  • Who Are You?: Each of the teams have been assigned by color. It is now your job as a team to come up with a Team Name and Team Flag. After deciding on your name and flag one of your team members will post it to their blog. The team that has the most notes on their post will be the Power Team and the team with the fewest notes will automatically have to send 2 players into the arena.
  • Don't Weigh Me Down:Each person will be given 20 1lb weights. You will give out these weights to the other players. Your options range from giving 1 person all 20 weights to 20 people 1 weight each, you may distribute them to whomever you want. After all the weights have been distributed I will add up the weights for each person on every team and average it per team members. The team with the least amount of weight will be the winner and the team with most weight will be going into the Arena.
  • Drunk Goggles: Below you will find 32 photos of the original 32 players in this game. However, they are altered, some only a little, some severely. It is your job as a team to figure out who is who. I only need one submission per team. You can find everyone’s photos on the wiki. Remember I want the names of the players in this game, not who the actual people are. For each correct answer your team will get a point. The team with the most points will be the Power Team and the team with the least amount of points will automatically have to send 2 of their players into the Arena.
  • Climb Me: Please follow these instructions carefully. The link will bring you a list of walls to chose from. The walls vary in difficulty. Rather than make you all try the same wall, you can chose whichever wall you want. But remember, higher level walls will give you more points.
  • Multitask: This is an automatic elimination! Everyone will compete individually, your teams are no more! The person with the lowest score will automatically be eliminated from the game. If one of you (or many of you) do not post your score then all of them will be eliminated. After the eliminated players are gone the person with the highest score will have a lot of power! They will get to arrange everyone onto the remaining 7 teams. If there are an odd amount of players, then the person not selected for a team will be eliminated.
  • Order Me Up: For this challenge you will be given a video link here. This video is of The Challenge: Cutthroat highlights. Below you will see frames from this video and a number next to them. Your job is to take this frames and put them in order. For example, if the frame labeled with the number, 23, was the first frame to show up in the video then you would put.
  • I'm In Pieces: This Challenge is simple. Everyone complete this Jigsaw Puzzle on the default 78 pice setting. Once you complete it with your best time you will submit it to my blog. The team with the lowest average time will be the winner and the team with the largest time average will be going into the Arena. If you do not submit then your time will be 1 hour.
  • Fire Starter: In this game, your job is to save the earth from a barrage of asteroids. Once you complete it with your best time you will submit it to my blog. The team with the lowest average score will be the winner and the team with the largest score average will be going into the Arena. If you do not submit then your time will be 0.
  • Love Me or Hate Me: You will go to this form and fill out your answers. In the first set of questions you will all answer with your own opinions. In the second set of questions you will answer what you think the majority of players picked. For guessing the majority question correct you will earn one point.
  • In The Dark: The numbered position that you start on will be determined by random.org. None of you will know where you or your fellow houseguests have been placed on the grid. Each player will be making 90 moves during this competition, and must send me all 90 moves (in a numbered list) that they wish to make all at once on Skype (to avoid confusion.) Those moves can include “Up” “Down” “Left” “Right” and “Stay.” Each time two houseguests collide by moving onto the same space (E.G., “Bananas moves up” and “Paula moves left” and they both land on the second row and second column) both of those houseguests will be eliminated. HOWEVER if one houseguest decides to stay still and ANOTHER houseguest walks into them (E.G., “CT stayed still” and “Diem moves right”) ONLY THE PLAYER THAT STAYED STILL will be eliminated from the competition. The walls of the grid wrap around, so if you bump into the leftmost wall you will re-appear on the right side of the grid, same with up and down.

Arena GamesEdit

  • Speed Typing: Here is how this Arena Challenge will work, the four of you will all click the Speed Typing link. There you will type in all of the clues that are on the right side into the left side. For each one you type correctly in under 3 minutes you get a point.
