The duo spoke about their experience on the show. While there were moments where they were doing terrifying stunts, both Williams and Gronkowski said that it was fun to film them. One of the dangerous tasks was to be suspended upside down on a harness and then having to do sit-ups. "After I was done doing it, it took those nerves out; I felt like I could go bungee-jumping now," Gronkowski said.
"Just be careful have fun," a fan wished them well for their stunts. "Bittersweet feels watching this as a Pats fan," tweeted a fan about Gronkowski, a former New England Patriots player.

You smiled the entire time. Happy Happy Venus!" tweeted a fan.
By the end, both of them had to put toothpaste in the blender and drink it. This got many fans upset. "So the blender challenge was fun but the fluoride in the toothpaste is poisonous," tweeted one. "They don't know that it's dangerous to eat toothpaste? It gives a warning on the label. #[email protected] @RobGronkowski #latelateshow," added another. "It's not healthy to ingest toothpaste. @RobGronkowski @serenawilliams @JKCorden."
