Katya "spilled her guts" after the first event instead because she was still in the competition at that time.

  • Blue player Brandon is referred by his last name (Holcomb) as opposed to his first name like the other contestants in this episode (it says his last name on his helmet and the digital scoreboard)

  • Mike errantly called the Faceplant Slant on The Edge Faceplant Curve.

  • The medals won in this episode does not count toward the official medal count in the official Global Guts season. This is only a special episode that aired before Global Guts officially premiered.

  • Mike O'Malley heads into the Extreme Arena after hours dressed as a player, and runs 1/2 of Basic training, showing off as if he were a Guts athlete.

  • This was the first time that Tornado Run had been on Global Guts. To save time, the event was run with all three players on the track simultaneously. One obstacle required that the players step on the lilypads to avoid jumping in the water. Instead of waiting for the other players to complete this task, the players ended up splashing through the water and getting their shoes wet. When they rounded the corner, they all slipped and fell. This injured Katya and she was unable to complete the event. In this version of Tornado Run, for the last obstacle, the players were jump through the first net and then climb over the entire second net (approx. 8 ft off the ground). For safety reasons, during the next Tornado Run, players would be timed and have individual runs. During the nets, they would only need to jump through two holes and no longer needed to climb to the top of the second net.
