Pilot episode[]

The pilot episode for the series aired on American MTV at 22:00, October 22, 2009, and the popularity and response from the pilot will determine if the series continues.

Set around a large LA warehouse, the first show included free runners Daniel IIabaca, Daniel Arroyo, Ryan Doyle, Tim "Livewire", Shieff, Pip Andersen, Micheal Turner, Brian Orosco and King David, who were competing against each other to win $10,000.

The show consisted of three rounds:

  1. The eight competitors were split into two teams, and each had to make a free running video filmed in the warehouse. The winning team would all go straight to round 3, but the losing team would have to battle it out in round 2 with only one making it through to the final round.
  2. The competitors had to complete a speed run through two alley-ways of the warehouse, with only the fastest time going through to the final round
  3. In the same style as many other competitions, each competitor had a short time to impress a panel of judges. There were also 7 targets placed around the arena, of which they had to hit 6

There were a considerable amount of bails and injuries for the first show, with King David and Daniel Arroyo both landing on their necks, Brian Orosco over-rotating a large frontflip , and Michael Turner who sliced his finger, along with performing regardless of the possible hairline fracture on his heel, which occured previous to the show.
