World champion tie-down roper, Fred Whitfield, joins Trace Adkins to judge the cowboys as they compete in an individual calf roping challenge. The contestant who ropes the fastest time wins immunity from the next elimination. Tensions continue to build between two of the competitors until one reaches his breaking point, and things get physical. A team challenge puts the cowboys’ skills to the test. Trace wonders if some of them have the experience needed to compete at this level. The two contestants who fall short hit the trail, leaving eight cowboys remaining.
