Episode 4: The Fitness Challenge

Two Expresso presenters, two cities and a one great big adventure - this is the Ford EcoSport Challenge! Zoe and Ewan will put their driving skills and wits to the test as they solve clues and complete a series of challenges until one is crowned the winner. With a little help from celebrity friends, these urban adventurers have to accumulate points along their journey on a road with plenty of twists and turns. It’s time to #GetBusy as Zoe and Ewan are handed the keys to their Ford EcoSport and discover their first clue ready and waiting. Join them on their adventure as they conquer all!

Last Week’s Kindness Challenge ended with Zoe maintaining her five-point lead, but the game isn’t over yet – will Ewan’s physical fitness give him the upper hand? Or will Zoe’s endurance make it a close one?

The day started with Zoe heading to the Sea Point Promenade where Mishakaah Patel was waiting to start their Bounceback fitness session with fitness guru, Zamo van Der Westhuizen. Bounceback also known as rebound is a high intensity workout using a mini trampoline – but don’t let the size of that little trampoline fool you because just two minutes of rebounding offers the equivalent physiological benefits as six minutes of running!

Typical Zoe style, she drove straight past the girls but lucky for her, a quick legal u-turn gained her 15 points in the car challenge!

Ewan started his morning off at ARENAWellness, where Brendan Peyper was waiting to start their HITT session at the Arena with Buchanan, where they combine the principles of high intensity interval training with their Train-Move-Play philosophy to give clients the most effective and efficient way to improve their endurance, build muscle and lose weight. Each workout includes agility and speed training, power and strength training as well as core strength and flexibility training – so the boys are in for a very good workout!

Ewan used some wit in his car challenge by using a circle in order to make a legal u-turn – not quite the same thing but he earned an extra five points for the genius idea, revving him into the lead for this one!

As fit as they are, Ewan, Brendan, Mishkaah and Zoe sure did work up a sweat! After their sessions they were handed their next clue, which would lead them to their next mission – a foodie challenge!



Zoe and Mishkaah ended up at The Station on Bree, where they serve up some of the best burgers in Cape Town and give customers a trip to London through the incredible London Underground look and feel!

Ewan and Brendan ended up at The Wolfpack, situated in Parkhurst, Johannesburg, where Jozi people flock for the mouthwatering burgers!

The challenge? Girls vs Guys – whoever consumes their Burger fastest wins the challenge! Both teams had the same notion “Good food should never be rushed” but Ewan and Brendan had a plan up their sleeve!

While Zoe and Mishkaah raced to finish their burgers as fast as lightening, Ewan and Brendan made a pact to forfeit the challenge, sit back and enjoy every mouthful of their delicious meal!

Five points to Ewan for humor, and minus 5 to Zoe for cheating! But all in all – Zoe zooms ahead thanks to Ewan’s hilarious prank – but as funny as it was – will this mean Zoe gets the last laugh?

Having forfeited the mission – Ewan’s score takes a massive dip, giving Zoe a full 10 point lead! It’s going to be tough for him to close the gap – will he be able to go full throttle to reclaim his spot in the competition – we’ll have to wait and see…
