Since contestant Rick Wilson was a member here, we may as well discuss his episode.
This is my favorite episode without a doubt.
I loved Human Pinball.
My favorite moments in no particular order:
1) Paul Martin struggling to swing 2) Christian Readyhoff's dance/run 3) Daniel Drew chugging hot sauce 4) Any moment with Katie Mayfield, especially her completing the course after she lost 5) Christian Readyhoff walking across Blast Off without falling. Very impressive. 6) Mich Rohner wearing new sneakers on Wipeout.

Hi, I was on this episode(Faceplant). It was actually filmed as the pilot. That is why there were 32 people. In fact there were supposed to be more than that, they changed it the morning we started filming from what I understand. 32 was too many. Took too fricken long. They also hadn't figured out the sweeper and how it would work which is why we had no "last man standing" money. Which sucked once I saw they did that for the other episodes.
Human Pinball was PAINFUL! Too much injury and not enough splashy wipeouts is why they probably won't have that again. Mich Rohner had on new sneakers because he had sandles and thought we would be doing everything bearfoot. So they happened to have several pairs of sneakers lying around and he grabbed a pair. That's whey they were new. Worked out to be pretty funny though. We had those new "robes" in the Wipeout zone because it was so fricken cold. They had someone race down to Target and buy those at the last minute. It was about 30 degrees or thereabouts with the wind chill that night. It was close to midnight by the time we filmed that because of the wind and just figuring out everything for the first time. You may have noticed the triangles didn't spin. That's because they got water logged because it took so fricken long to get things going and then they became too heavy and wouldn't spin. Could have been tricky to get over those had they been working. Of course they didn't tell us they weren't working, we just kind of had to figure that out for ourselves. That why I hesitated so long at that point.
