Solitary 4.0: Episode 8 Recap

 
By Maureen Francisco
 
More than seven hours of racing and squatting, we're left with #2, #3, and #6 in a penalty squat position. 
 
#6, the Solitary veteran, earned the right to pass during any squat session after winning an earlier challenge. He skipped one to rest up. 
 
Unfortunately, the break didn't help as he slipped during the following penalty squat. "My body quit on me," said #6. And, he was forced to push the red button. Tyler's stay in Solitary ended for the second time.

Solitary 4.0: Episode 7 Recap

 
By Maureen Francisco
 
With #7 gone, #2 and #3 continued to feel the pressure in the "crown of chains" treatment. They sat on a chair covered with sharp, metal pegs and had to wear a helmet that draped chains that weighed four pounds each. 
 
In round 10, the guests attached 10 chains to their helmets, weighing a total of 40 pounds. The contestants sat on their chairs for 40 minutes. 
 
The thoughts of quitting, weighed heavily on #3's mind. The 20-year-old football player said, "It hurts to




ABOUT SOLITARY 4.0


As with the first three seasons, the premise of Solitary v4.0 is simple: the last person to leave their pod – small, barren and completely isolated – wins bragging rights and $50,000.  There are no councils, no alliances, and no votes. No one goes home until they themselves choose to push the red button and quit.   All contestants willingly place themselves in their assigned “pods” to undergo grueling tests and treatments assigned by their sarcastic, omniscient digital taskmaster, Val.   These individuals are subjected to sleep deprivation, extreme temperatures and other forms of environmental stress meant to “break” them, thus causing them to leave their pod and lose.   Perhaps the most challenging part about Solitary is that contestants have no idea what the other contestants are doing or how much longer they must endure the competition.

Never-before-seen challenges for Solitary v4.0 include “The Virtually Amazing Race,” a physically grueling and puzzling journey through a virtual maze; “Don’t Fence Me In,” where the contestants’ tiny pods become even more claustrophobic as jail cells from which they must escape; “Slap Unhappy,” which requires the guests to drive a sound meter into the red zone by slapping themselves; and “Head of Nails,” which is part iron maiden, part electric chair, and 100% excruciating!

Fox Reality Channel will give viewers even more Solitary v4.0 with exciting online content, including 30 webisodes posted on foxreality.com. Videos will give users an opportunity to view special footage, which will not be seen on-air.

Solitary v4.0 is executive produced and co-created by Emmy Award-winning producer Andrew Golder (Identity, World Series of Blackjack, Win Ben Stein’s Money) and Lincoln Hiatt (Unan1mous).
