At the beginning of the game, Lee Byung-ju maintained first place, but Go Ya-yung, who arrived at the single rope in third place, climbed to the single rope at super speed and took first place. Second place was Lee Byeong-ju, and Jeong Seung-hoon, who failed to walk the tightrope, tried to keep climbing without letting go of the tightrope even after the game ended, bringing everyone to tears. The studio MCs also showed heartwarming emotions at the loyalty of the crew members who sympathized more with the pain of the losers rather than the winners and embraced them with deep camaraderie.
