AIRED:
From Discoverykids.com

In the final Endurance Mission, "Don't Drop the Ball," the Blue and Yellow teams competed for the final Pyramid Piece, which the Red Team left behind when they were eliminated from the island. In this game, each team was perched atop their own platform above the ocean. The object was for each team to hold a giant ball over their head for as long as they could. The first team to drop their ball into the ocean would lose. Jon and Sabrina of the Yellow team were steady the entire game, while Aaron and Jonna of the Blue team switched off to allow resting. This proved costly when, during one of their switchovers, they lost control of the ball and dropped it into the ocean, dashing their hopes of yet another victory. With the win, the Yellow team evened things up at five Pyramid Pieces for each team. At the Final Temple, the Yellow team was shocked to discover the final Temple Mission was different from the "Fire, Wood, and Water" game the teams had become accustomed to. The Final Temple Mission consisted of a large tablet with 10 small Pyramids mounted in the tablet. At JD's command, the pyramids would flip over to reveal what was on their underside. One team would place their small Pyramid Pieces next to as many pyramids as they wanted while leaving at least one open, and the other team would have to fill up the remaining spaces on the board. The pyramids would flip over exposing the underside until the golden pyramid was revealed. The team with the golden pyramid would win that round and all the pieces on the board, and the first team to acquire all 10 Pyramid Pieces would become Endurance Champion. The Yellow team won the first round and took a 6-piece to 4-piece lead, but Blue came back and won the next round evening the score at 5-5. As tensions began to mount, the Yellow team won the next round and took a commanding lead at 8-2. It appeared that the Yellow team had the championship won until the Blue team got lucky and found the golden pyramid, creating a huge power shift as they took a 7-3 lead. After the Blue team won the fifth round and held an almost insurmountable 9-1 lead in the championship match, the Yellow team placed their only piece on the board. If they had the golden pyramid they would cash in and hold a huge lead, but if the Blue team had it they would become champions. The five pairs of eyes of the four remaining contestants and JD looked on as the final two pyramids flipped over ... BLUE WINS!! They walked away the first Champions of Endurance and were on their way to a trip in the Amazon!moreless
