The "R U Tough Enough?" final showdown was a first of its kind with an exciting battle of man versus woman. This is also the first year that "R U Tough Enough?" has a male and female ambassador, namely, Arnold Aninion and Aubrey Miles, who also served as the coaches of their respective team.

The Tasks & Challenges
The anticipated battle of Pinoys and Pinays was surely a no easy feat, especially when the R U Tough Enough? final showdown is geared up with six (6) tough stations. It kicked off with the Perfect Storm, a challenge that is comprised of four sub-stations, built to rain on a fury of toughness. This was followed by the Z-Wall, a uniquely designed lateral climbing wall for uniquely strong individuals. 

Up next was the Bicycle Course, where biking will be given a challenging twist. The fourth challenge will be the Slip Wall, an inclined-wall made to test the inclined finalists. Next is the Total Recall, built to test the finalists’ physical and mental strength. Last on the lineup is the Fisherman’s Friend Panels Shuffle, where finalists’ will be coursing through hanging panels.
