The Ford EcoSport Challenge Episode 2

Last Week’s Eco Challenge saw Ewan race into the lead with 45 points against Zoe with 40, in the Ford EcoSport Challenge. With more challenges lying ahead, will he keep up his pace or will Zoe shift up a level in the Fears Challenge?

Ford EcoSport Challenge Episode 2  
Our dynamic duo woke up to a very big surprise. They had to climb up a hill to find their next clue, but it wasn’t that easy, they had to perfect a hill start and stop. With the Mother City boasting plenty of hills, Zoe’s hill ended up being quite a lot more daunting than Ewan’s – earning her the lead in this episode’s car challenge.

Their cryptic clues lead them both to an unlikely destination where they’d soon find out, one of their biggest fears awaited!
Winding along the scenic coastal roads of the Cape, Zoe ended up in Kommetjie, outside the Slangkoppunt Lighthouse. At 34 meters high this is one of 45 lighthouses on the South African coastline. Enigmatic in its own right, it spirals proudly as the tallest cast-iron lighthouse in SA and consists of 272 cast iron plates, put together like building blocks.

Zoe had to put her fear of heights aside and climb the 139 steps, five floors to the top of this beautiful lighthouse, but the challenge didn’t end there. Once she reached the top, she found the clue – stuck to the window outside the lighthouse meaning only one thing – she had to climb the outside ladder in order to get her next clue.

Meanwhile, our superman, Ewan, arrived at Protea Hotels by Marriott, African Pride, Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, where a friendly waiter was waiting to escort him to his biggest fear – eating chicken livers! A timer was set and Ewan had to dig in and dig deep to conquer this challenge. Lucky for Ewan, they’re the best chicken livers in town.

One thing is certain, there is going to be no backing down from either of these two brave hearts! Having successfully completed their fears challenge and holding their next clue in hand, they can jump back into their EcoSports and drive home for a well-deserved rest before the next.
With a tie in the fear challenge, the final scores are tallied at:

Ewan: 85
Zoe: 90

Can Zoe keep her lead? We’ll have to wait and see!
