This week the show is in San Antonio, Texas. Matt and Akbar welcome a huge crowd and it is the first time the show has been filmed in San Antonio. Kristine introduces the course for tonight.

The first contestant is Rynel Gervacio and the crowd goes wild cheering him on. He easily makes it through the floating steps, the tic toc and the spinning bridges but misses the first ring on the sky hook and is out of the game.
