Stunt 31 – Lambe Khambe – Stunt one was a time based partnered stunt. There were six very tall and narrow towers placed parallel to each other which the pairs had to climb. Both the contestant and the partner had to start climbing at the same time one from the extreme left and the other from the right. After getting on top the inner most towers they had to exchange the flags, go back to their towers and place back the new flag. This process had to be repeated till all the flags were exchanged and replaced on the tower. This had to be completed in ten minutes. This was a very challenging stunt because the towers were very high and their width was very less which made it very difficult for the pairs to balance themselves on the top of the tower. There were no safety bands given instead there were power bands that gave the contestants the power to decide the order in which the contestants would attempt the task.
Stunt 2 – Final Flight – Stunt two was also a time based individual stunt. Only the girls had to do it. The contestants had to ride quad bikes off the edge of a high rise building. The quad bikes had to land at a target point on the ground decided by the pairs. The task was challenging because they had to strategically fall off to make sure the bikes landed on the mark.
