The mission was triangle wrestling, one site was an ordinary field with sand, meanwhile the other two were a bit different, covered in water and mud, so the cast had to choose where to battle. The battle was the Running Idol Team versus the Forever Idol Team.  Yoo Jae-suk confidently chose field that was filled with mud that the crew claimed was good for their skin, because he believed Kim Jong-kook would slip on it easily. The mud pool was deep and slippery, and the person whose back touches the ground first would lose the game.

The first players to go were Kim Jong-kook and Yoo Jae-suk. Before the game started, the rest of members were already worried about him. After the whistle was blown, Kim Jong-kook turned Yoo Jae-suk into human windmill.  He dunked Yoo Jae-suk into the mud until he was coated in it. The rest of members started laughing, even though they expected it to happen. The humiliation continued, since Kim Jong-kook wouldn’t let him go and kept dunking him into the mud pool. Kim Jong-kook’s team consisted of HOT members, who did a victory dance over the win.
