If the one dude who’s actually from NYC can’t do a challenge consisting of rats, you know it’s bad. This challenge, from the very first episode of the series, consists of contestants being strapped down in a pit with rats crawling all over them for four minutes, which doesn’t sound too bad…until you consider that rats bite. A lot.

It doesn’t help that most contestants freak out the second the rats are on them, because remaining calm may have saved them in this situation. You could call the guy from NYC who dropped out a "wimp," but after seeing what the other contestants went through, we’re inclined to use the word "genius" instead.
