Task 1: It involved crossing three hurdles and reaching the finish line. But before crossing the three hurdles, the chosen contestants had to get a red flag which was put in a cage with two Cheetahs. After getting the flag, the contestants had to reach the finish line before the third Cheetah who was running from the other end to the finish line. Shweta, Arjun and Anushka did the task bravely. However, because of the time difference among the three, Anushka got the ‘fear fanda’ which put her in danger of elimination.
