Welcome to Battle
of the Fittest Couples. I’m Jordan Rogers and this is my
gorgeous fiance, Jojo Fletcher. We’ve conducted a nationwide
search for the strongest, toughest, fittest couples
in the country and you are the final
12 that made the cut. Congratulations.
All right, so you all are going to be living
in this mansion together and competing
in some grueling challenges that are going to be
more physically and mentally demanding than anything you’ve ever
experienced in your lives. Your relationships are about
to be tested to the limit. Don’t forget why
we’re really here. You’re competing
for a grand prize of $100,000. It’s a lot of money. That’s right. That’s a whole
lot of protein powder. When we win the $100,000, it is
going all into our wedding. We’re flying straight to Prague
to be married in Prague Castle, which is Guinness Book, the largest castle
on this planet. And I get to marry
my Prince Charming. All right, guys. We knew you
were going to be jacked up, so we made sure to get you an
extra jacked up home to stay in. Pretty sweet, right? You guys
ready to go check it out? Yeah. Yeah. Oh, hold up,
hold up, whoa, whoa, whoa. We’re here to compete first
because it’s time for your very first main
event challenge. We just walked up to this house,
and then they’re like, “And it’s time to go compete.” Don’t make yourself
comfortable. One of you is about to be
the first losing couple. Okay, guys, let’s get to it.
Meet us at the lake. What is that ramp? Whoa, whoa,
whoa. So I’m coming down
this dirt path, I see this big ramp
and I’m feeling queasy. Couples, welcome to your
first main event challenge. Now, let me explain how all this
is going to work. Every challenge is going
to have a winning team and a losing team. The losing team is automatically
up for elimination. The winning team is going
to be safe from elimination and they’re going to have
the power to choose which team
will join the losers in a head-to-head battle
at the rage cage. Okay. Sound intimidating? Yeah, a little bit. It is. The rage cage to me just sounds
like fire and fighting, and I’m just like, “I have
no interest in going there.” All right, guys, you ready
for your first challenge? Yeah. Let’s do it. We like to call it the Tow Job. We’re about to put every inch
of your athleticism to the test. From strength and endurance
to willpower and heart. We’ve constructed a giant ramp
right here with one job, to send one of you flying as far
as possible into that water. There’s a buoy out there
about a hundred feet out and a flag back here on shore. You’re going to have to choose
which one of you is going to be the launcher and which one is going
to be the swimmer. The launchers job is
to pull a bungee cord weighted down with over
250 pounds of tension. From there,
you’ll trigger a trip wire launching your partner
off the ramp. The swimmer, as soon as you
get your bearings, go around the buoy,
back to shore and grab this flag
as quickly as possible. The fastest team
to grab the flag, they win. The team with the slowest time,
will go to the rage cage and be up for elimination.
All right, Erin, Jordan. You guys are up first. She’s swimming. I’m launching. All right.
Yep. Let’s go.
Let’s do it. I’m going to be able to pull
at a really good speed. She’s a really efficient swimmer and her endurance
is pretty unreal. I think we have the perfect
combination here. Yeah. Three, two, one, go. Biggest competition for us
just off the get go is Jordan and Erin. They look like
the fittest couple here, so a lot of targets are going
to be put on their backs. Almost there, baby.
Almost there, almost there. So I can deadlift 275
for 20 reps. This was a lot harder than that. He found out just how heavy
that rope actually is. It’s lifting a heavy amount
of weight over, and over, and over,
and over, and over, and over, and then 20 more times. Let’s go. Oh, use your legs, Erin.
Use your legs. Wow. Well, that was a hell of a time. We control our destiny
right now whatsoever. There’s no chance
that we’re losing. However, I do think some couples
are intimidated by us. Three, two, one, go. Let’s go, I see you, young blood. Keep going. We’re the youngest, we’re the
strongest, we’re the fastest. Definitely. We definitely have youth
on our side. He is moving. He is moving. You got it. Mike looks like an Oak tree.
Look at his legs. He looks like he eats
cinder block for breakfast. Yeah. Let’s go, Jaret. You got it.
You got this. We are definitely one of the
smallest couples in the house. We have our work cut out for us. Come on, Andy. God is so good. Lord willing,
we will take this home. I think I’m ready.
I mean, I’m a man. Look. Pull it, pull it, pull it.
Come on, big dog. You’re right there.
Big pulls, Jaret. Let’s go, let’s go. Let’s go. Uh-oh, uh-oh. Let’s go. He’s slowing down. He’s still going
with the seated grip. I’ve given it everything I got. It’s very quickly becoming more
and more difficult. My lungs are on fire,
starting to get gassed. I’m starting to think
this is a big mistake. Thanks for watching. And don’t forget to subscribe
