Episode Summary

ROUND 1: THE SPEED ROUND - Three Ball Monty

Contestants, each armed with a backpack leaf blower, face off against each other. Between them are 3 beach balls. On go, the players compete to blow the balls place the other contestant. The player who blows the majority of balls passed the other player fastest wins the round. Best of three rounds wins.

ROUND 2: THE FINESSE ROUND - Shapes of Wrath

Contestants each have a log and a goal – cut four shapes – a parallelogram, a square, an equilateral triangle and an isosceles triangle. The work is done with the chainsaw and the shapes that are cut have to align properly with a cutout for each of the four shapes. The contestant who finishes all four shapes first and then runs to the wall cutouts and fits them through the wall wins the challenge.

THE BACKYARD GAUNTLET

Leg 1: The Fertilizer Hits the Fan
Contestants find 200 lbs of fertilizer at one end of a concrete walkway and, using a leaf blower, must blow 10 lbs fertilizer onto a scale at the other end of a concrete walkway. Contestants can only move on to leg three once they've achieved the 10lb. goal.

Leg 2: Egg Hunt!
The contestants must use their weed trimmer to find a hidden Easter Egg in a tall patch of grass. The Egg contains the three-digit combo to a lock that will unlock a crate containing a chainsaw, which is vital to the next leg of the challenge.

Leg 3: Flower Stomp
Contestants face a maze-like course of flowerbeds with lots of hard turns that are placed into a green lawn. Armed with a zero-turn mower, the contestants must mow up all the flowers.The first one to rip up the flowers and make it to the finish line wins.

WHEN DO YOU FIRST REMEMBER USING POWER TOOLS?
Started when i was about 5, out in the workshop with my grandfather

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH A TOOL PRIZE PACK IF YOU WIN?
Growing up, I burnt up a lot of my father's power tools so I probably owe him a chainsaw, but other than that, I would keep it and put them to good use.

WHAT'S YOUR COMPETITION DAY STRATEGY?
Get a good night's sleep, wake up, have my coffee, put on my work clothes and come out and win it.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL GIVES YOU THE EDGE IN THE COMPETITION?
First off, my knowledge base on how to correctly and efficiently use an array of power tools. Second, just my size and strength. If all else fails, just over power the opposition.
