They came up with plans to prevent suicide and tackle climate change. Then on Day 4 of the reality TV challenge came a final twist.
As the team prepared for the final day, with both the men and women split by gender, one man and one woman were picked to do each of the five tasks, with the women having the first day off.
So with the final task chosen, the two women split into separate teams to do it, with one woman taking the first task and one woman taking the third, and so on.
The team chosen had to learn how to sew and paint, to build a bike, to find and fix a broken window, to create the best cake and to create a movie for a family film that would go viral. They couldn’t use social media, so they had to build their own website as they went along.
But even though each team, and then every single contestant, had their own specific challenges to tackle, the team that went down the fastest would win.
There was a lot of drama and suspense as the men and women got their tasks, and then some drama and suspense while they learned how to do the tasks.
And then on the final night, to the delight of the crowd and the disappointment of the other six teams, the team that went down the quickest won.
And there is one thing the contestants were quick to point out: They were not all women. There was one man who took part and he won.
So the women can all relax a little, but that does not mean that we all have it so easy, and there is one thing that people will only realise after the next challenge: They will learn that being a woman and being in the spotlight is much harder than they thought it was.
