A quick recap of Beyond the Edge's last episode
Underwood and Lewis competed in the final adventure in the last episode of Beyond the Edge. Since Lewis was at the top of the leaderboard, he picked Morgan to be on his team. Underwood was paired with Singletary for the final adventure, in which the players had to collect pennants representing different past adventures. The first duo to collect all their pennants and place them in the correct order was declared the show's winner.
After many challenges, both teams collected pennants but struggled to remember the correct order. Both teams placed the pennants in the wrong order, but after trial and error, Underwood and Singletary got the order right and were declared the show's winner.
The winner received an extra $100,000 to add to their prize pot, while the winner’s teammate got $50,000.
