The danger for the candidates on the Greek island of Naxos was simply too great!
The challenge for the remaining top ten of the weight loss camp: Between a questioning station at the foot of a picturesque old town and another questioning station on the mountain, the candidates had to run through the stairs and alleys of the town and answer questions.
The challenge was only over if there were five correct answers within 20 minutes. Whoever solved the quickest, got a 1.5 kilo weight bonus for the scales.
The iss is amused: “For today’s challenge you need speed, perseverance and brains.” And the questions were tough too!
An example: how much exercise does the WHO recommend per week? A: 2.5 hours (correct), B: 4 hours, C: 6.5 hours, D: 12 hours. Candidate Gianluca (22, starting weight 136.5 kilos) desperate: “I’m not a sports scientist!”
He and team partner Ole (40, starting weight 164 kilos) were fast runners – but they did not make any progress in answering the questions. Ole, out of breath: “I’m slowly starting to see it as a bonus for the scales, because if you run up and down so often, you lose weight too.”
The saying goes: ‘What you don’t have in your head, you have in your legs.’
The iss warned the candidates: “Please pay attention to the way, it can be slippery.”
Everything was still good. Ramin Abtin reassures: “When it started to drizzle a bit, I thought to myself: ‘Well, a little rain won’t stop us from running a challenge. Our candidates are tough, they can do it. ”
The stairs were flooded, the team couldn’t come down!
The bakery saleswoman shocked: “What a clap of thunder! Awesome. that it was so close too. At that moment I was also pretty scared. ”
Downstairs, candidate Sonja (46, starting weight 126.3 kilos) worried: “We knew that Melissa and Jessica were up there and our coaches were still up there and hope that they would simply come down well. It is indescribable how quickly the weather can change and it can even be life-threatening. “
Even the former kickboxing world champion Ramin Abtin was impressed by the power of the weather: “That was no easy thunder! It’s more like: ‘OK, let’s go to a bunker’. ”
The refore a termination was inevitable. ”
The iss summarized: “Everyone made sure that they somehow got themselves to safety, the candidates and the whole team behind them, there are umpteen people who are there. Everyone just tried to get dry somehow. “
The challenge was not continued until the next day in the dry – a novelty in the history of the show!
The weather is always nice, they said! “
