Young An and Tara Davis are in the bottom two and have to go against each other to maintain their spot in the competition
Spoilers for 'Tough as Nails' July 29 episode
Dirty Hands took the lead in the team competition but it was time for everyone to step up their game and work through the individual challenge. To make sure that they don't land themselves in the timeout challenge, the team had to break concrete into parts that were small enough to go through a gate. Once they managed to clean the place and move all the concrete to the other side, the teams had to make sure that they fill up the truck with all the pieces. After hours of breaking the concrete, Young An and Tara Davis landed themselves in the bottom two.
Young would be facing this challenge for the third time while for Tara, this was the first time being in the bottom two. Tara had been struggling to feel part of the game ever since she felt that the team did not respect her as a team member. Despite this, she decided to put on a brave face and go against Young. For the timeout challenge, both of them were given an hourglass container filled with sand. The duo had to make sure that their hourglass container did not lose all the sand. The one whose container of sand finished first would be out of the game.
While one would think this was an easy task, the challenge of this competition was that both of them had to make their way across to the sand pile by stepping on thin wood, all while making sure they maintain their balance and also bring in the sand. Young and Tara had to go back and forth to make sure their container did not run out of the sand.
As the competition began, Young and Tara tried to make sure they were fast enough and did not lose a lot of sand while traveling. Young struggled with his balance but managed to pull himself back together for the game. Unfortunately, Tara could not do the same. Her container ran out of the sand and she was out of the individual challenge.
While she had come to the game to prove to her children that anyone can do anything, now the only source of income for Tara would be the team challenge. However, seeing how she had trouble getting along, can she manage to work with them as a team?
