CONTESTANTS TAKE ROAD TRIP TO THE GRAND CANYON!

Once they arrive at the Grand Canyon, they have to figure out how to work out with no gym and no trainers. Later, the family teams compete for an amazing prize in a kayak challenge on the Colorado River before heading back to the ranch, where medical problems threaten to sideline one contestant. Then a surprise shake up at the weigh in makes for the most difficult and emotional elimination so far.

Trainer Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels also star.
