The Tester Season 2 – Episode 2 – Loft Brouhaha

For those who missed Episode 1 you can see my review here.

Last week, two contestants were eliminated, Boo and Max1m leaving 10 contestants in the race to be the next Playstation Tester.

The week’s challenge brings the contestants to the historic Edwards Air Force Base, where the testing of several airplanes is done. The future testers are divided into two teams, Red and White.

White : Big Fazeek, Mo chocolate, 8-bit Mickey, Ches-Ka and Fantasy girl.
Red : Gaymer, Samurai, War Princess, Tripplethreat and Scooter.

All challengers are drilled by air force members to learn Drill orders and how to execute them in the hot 110 F Temperature. One member of the Red team drops out of the drills because of the heat. Once completed the challengers had one hour to come up with their own drill using at least 5 of the 10 “moves” that was taught to them by the Drill sergeant.
