The greatest student internet blogging competition of all time... with the most unexpected elimination so far... a shock result that would send one of the red hot favourites for the 2016 season out.
Two teams of students competing against each other in a series of challenge to determine one survivor the ultimate champion. Competition started in March and filming is scheduled to wrap in December when one challenger will stand having defeated all others!

In this challenge the premise was simple - both teams had three minutes to stack as many blocks as possible in a "Tower of Doom'. Both teams had a choice of working co-operatively or letting others in the group take the lead. Whero were desperate to wrestle control of the game back from Kikorangi having seen their early domination disappear. Whero's challenge was led by Astin who created and maintained a twelve block tower. While this might have been impressive Kikiroangi had Jordan who was able to significantly better the mark with 15.
The vote last episode had been affected by an immunity idol being played - would this be repeated? Which of the four remaining Whero players would be next to leave the game? With the merge only a short time away and players looking to make it a dream finish whose game was about to turn into a nightmare? The amazing competition was about to take another turn that no-one could expect with a shock elimination of a leading contender for the 2016 title... all will be revealed...
