!!!'''Quarterfinal 1'''
* ?Dave Walter's performance, earning 49 points against his opponent Cassius Frankson (who wasn't that bad himself, as shown below), the second highest score for male contenders in regular competition. He earned 9 points in Atlaspheres, 8 in Swingshot, 12 in Powerball, and a perfect 10 in both Hang Tough (against Cobra) and Gauntlet.
** His opponent, Cassius Frankson, also earned 10 points in Powerball, as well as another 10 in Hang Tough against the Wolfman (all Wolf got was a piece of Cassius' shirt). Speaking of Hang Tough, co-presenter Jeremy Guscott earns an MOA as well, giving Wolf a rugby tackle after the Gladiator shoved the contender off the platform during the post-event interview.
