After six weeks of various sporting events, The Superstars
finally crowns a pair tonight at 8pm on ABC. But before we find out who gets to earn the title of The Superstars Champion, the remaining contestants must first prove themselves in a kayak, tug of war and triathlon challenge.
The action kicks off at the spectacular Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas with the challenge called kayak pursuit where in each team paddles in tandem kayaks around a course in the lagoon. Then there's a tug-o-war where contestants' strength and stamina are put the test as teams pull three sunken buoys into shore from the lagoon, with each being of different weight. Naturally, the team to get its buoys across the line first is declared the winner for the second challenge.
Last but not the least, contestants will go through the triathlon arch to triumph, which consists of three legs. One team member will start from the Royal Towers arch and run through the lagoon pool to the bridge, and once there, he or she will tag a teammate who will jump off the bridge, swim to shore and navigate a beach rally. Subsequently, both teammates will then meet up in the transition area, grab a paddleboard and get across the lagoon to the finish line. The first team that crosses earns its spot to battle it out with the remaining team in the obstacle course to crown The Superstars Champion.
A show that pairs popular celebrities with world-class athletes, The Superstars
started with eight professional athletes and eight celebrities. Following five weeks of elimination, the competition is now down to three pairs, including freestyle skier Kristi Leskinen and Dancing with the Stars
