Funny / Most Extreme Elimination Challenge

Go To

  • After a bike race, the ending order is 1. Lekime 2. Tagginett 3. Uppda 4. Haas and 5. Levinette
    • The bike race in general. Nothing funnier than a bunch of grown men riding hilariously small tricycles while making "vroom" noises.
  • A contestant is tasked with drawing "Catbird on a Stick" and does it in two brush strokes.
    • The commentators' reactions to it make it even funnier.
      "Wesson Smith; Right up there with the great masters: Gaugin, Monet..."
      "and Ron Jeremy!"
      "Indeed, some inspiring skid marking there and we're all tied up at 23."
  • Many a contestant during many an episode with the rolling rock challenge getting crushed against the wall by the obviously styrofoam rocks, but the bone-crunching sound effects and screaming added in makes it hilarious.
  • In the very first episode, contestant (Rob Tussin), as he decides to show-off, goes for a backflip... and lands directly on his head, all before he stepped on a stone in Sinkers and Floaters.
    Kenny: Oh god, he's still goin'! (Rob does his run and wipes out) Oh, how can he— oh, he must be feeling really stupid!
    Vic: I don't think he's feeling anything from the neck down, Ken.
    • Then there's the interview he gives afterwards. "Did I win?" "I have blood in my stool."
    • What makes this even funnier is that unlike other wipeouts, we cut to Vic and Kenny in Stunned Silence. They then forget about the contestant's actual performance during the challenge and continue to comment on the backflip gone wrong.
      • Also note the guy behind them laughing his ass off, the only person in the shot that is expressing any sort of emotion that isn't shock.
    • What also makes this hilarious is that majority of the interview was given to his son.
    • Another funny thing about this? Tussin's scream in pain after he hits his head.
      • Bonus points for it being credited as the #1 Painful Elimination of the Day in the episode.
    • In the same episode, we have a combination Funny and Awesome with the "Log Drop", where the final contestant keeps nearly falling, only to manage to scramble back up and continue - after doing so 4 times, he manages to actually finish.

  • Another contestant does something similar (which also was credited as the #1 painful elimination of the episode) in Circle Jerkers Ahoy from the "Novelty Gifts Industry Vs. the Death Industry" episode, after getting excited upon getting the yellow ball, he does a backflip, landing on his head and staying that way for a good five seconds, all before he faced his opponent (even though he faced off against Golden Shower Boy). Poor impulse control mixed with even poorer coordination sure makes for a hilarious cocktail, don't it?
  • "Ah, there's his problem right there, Vic. He picked the wrong door!"
    • "Right you are, Ken!"
  • During one challenge in which contestants much run up a hill where giant rocks are hurtling toward them from upslope, with the only shelter populated by gashmen there to keep them out for a challenge, the last contestant for the footwear industry pulls one of them out of his hiding spot, and the second one falls over trying to catch them both. And they all wind up getting crushed, resulting in a chaotic 8 boulder pileup. Now that's carnage!
  • After the injuries a previous contestant suffered during Boulder Dash, a new safety suit is made and Kenny decides to test it during a Boulder Dash run. He comes out of it with crushed nuts after he ends up "hugging" one of the boulders due to minimal padding in the "groinal-sack region" and stuff dripping out of his ears after a second boulder hits him directly in the head despite the helmet.
    • On his way to test the suit, Kenny purposely hits his head against the wall to test the helmet.
      Kenny: I tested the wall first, it's pretty solid.
      Vic: Good, thinking Ken.
    • "For my homies!"
  • The entirety of the Broadcast version of "Real Monsters vs. Commercial Mascots". If you thought watching everyone wipe out was hilarious, now you get to watch them wipe out in full costume; some of the contestants even try to act in-character in spite of giant boulders rolling their way.
  • In "Addicts vs. Donors", the last of the addicts in The Dash to Death spontaneously donates his pancreas note  and completes the challenge, scoring a point for both teams.
    Vic: Do you know what that means?
    Kenny: The pool of stool is contaminated?
    • Also in Dash to Death, one of the contestants on the Donors team blazes through the first obstacle, then stumbles and falls into "The Grinder".
      Kenny: What did he donate?
      Vic: Looks like everything now, Ken.
    • And just before that came an Addict who was addicted to "fabric softener". He bizarrely slows down throughout the course until he stumbles across the nards of doom and into the last pool.
      Kenny: Boy, he is determined, but... I think he's done. I think he's spent.
      Vic: Right you are, Ken. Sadly, most addicts rarely have the character or gumption to finish what they start. (*sploosh*) And there you see he's completely given up on himself
      Kenny: (low volume, as if genuinely concerned) You don't think he'll hurt himself, do you, Vic?
      Vic: Don't be silly, Ken. That would require too much effort.
    • Also from that episode, the last contestant in Rotating Surfboard Of Death is neither an addict nor a donor, but the guy who runs the sandwich truck that delivers Vic and Kenny's lunch daily, and hilariously, he wins it.
    • And at the end of the episode, after the addicts defeated the donors, Kenny had a special prize set up for them.
      Vic: Well, there's our victorious team of addicts, running through the doors of treasure! Well, what's in the prize bin this week, Kenny? A washer and dryer, some luggage, a new car perhaps?
      Kenny: Better than that, Vic! I've got two words for ya: "ki-lo!"
      Vic: "Ki..." (at this point, the contestants have entered a large bin full of a white powder) Kenny! That's not what I think it is, is it?! How could you do that?! THAT'S DESPICABLE!!!
      Kenny: Oh, don't worry! It's not that, it's powdered milk! C'mon, they're junkies! They don't know the difference!
  • The Sustained Misunderstanding during Dash to Death in "Adult Entertainment vs. Home Improvement" needs to be seen in full in order to be appreciated:
    Vic: And here's Mike Sawsall. He's a sheet rocker moonlighting as a tub caulker.
    Kenny: Tub cocker? So he likes fat chicks?
    Vic: I wouldn't know, Kenny.
    Kenny: So what does he do with his cock?
    Vic: He puts it in the crack.
    Kenny: Oh, so he's in porn, then.
    Vic: Kenny. Listen. He's in construction.
    Kenny: You say he sticks his cock in the crack, but he's in construction. I thought you said he was a sheep stalker!
    Vic: I said a sheet rocker. Plus, I was talking about caulking compound.
    Kenny: He built a place to do this?
    Kenny: Am I missing something here?!
    Vic: Well, thanks to you, Kenny, we pretty much missed the entire run!
  • In "Snack Food Vs. Print Media":
    Captain Tenneal: Who thinks that contempary literature's in shambles and lack the great masters; Shakesphere, Hemingway and Jackie Collins? Show of hands... now!
    Contestants: (cheers)
    Captain Tenneal Well, you're wrong; I just published The Captain's autobiography called Well, You're Wrong! by The Captain.
    • Later, as Door Jam gets underway:
      Captain Tenneal: Geeeee-Buy my book!
    • And later prior to Brass Balls:
      Captain Tenneal: I'm going to be manning the gun, shooting the brass ball to our contestants. Now buy my book.
  • Kenny showing off "upcoming games":
    • "Beaver Shot", using a clip from a game of Endangering Species.
    • "Lava Biking", where you bike over hot coals. Kenny tried it and got tenth-degree burns.
    • "Head Stop", where you try to stop a bucking bronco with your head. You gotta hand it to Kenny, he had the balls and brains to come up with a future Olympic Sport.
    • "Big Swinging Knockers", a game that's basically a human Newton's Cradle. Kenny got the idea from watching women's volleyball.
    • "Name That Stain", showing Kenny wearing various messes being swung against a wall. Talk about a brush with Death!
    • "Indian Leg Wrestling With Horses", which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Bobby Shoemaker tried it, and was a human wishbone.
    • "Trouser Snake", where the goal is to get three guys in a snake costume to surround a chick from PETA and squeeze the life out of her.
    • "Board To Death", where a guy is strapped to a board and repeatedly lowered into mud. It was done twice, and that's the game, ironically according to Kenny, there's no object of the game.
      • At this point, a disclaimer appears at the bottom: "DON'T BE STUPID AND TRY THESE STUNTS AT HOME... LIKE KENNY".
    • "Road Kill", where Vic's car jumps over a guy strapped to a board. There's a version without a ramp, but they can't show it due to legal reasons.
      • At this point another disclaimer appears at the bottom during the version with the ramp: "DON'T BE EVEN STUPIDER AND TRY THIS AT HOME EITHER."
