Red Nose Day Special
On the course, Amell was perhaps known for dominating every obstacle on the qualifying course, conquering the Floating Steps, Cannonball Drop, Block Run, Warped Wall, and even the Fly Wheels and the new Battering Ram this season. He tied with Derek Hough for being the only celebrity to conquer all six qualifying obstacles legitimately. Even still, his completion of the six qualifying obstacles netted a $30,000 grant ($5,000 for each obstacle completed) to the children of Red Nose Day.
However, the main surprise in Amell's run came from his attempt on a back-half obstacle, typically used in a city finals course. After prior experience from his show, Amell attempted the Salmon Ladder. His success on it netted an extra $5000. Consequently, he made it all the way to the eighth obstacle, the Swinging Peg Board.
- Amell had the highest amount of money cashed in during Red Nose Day, netting a grand total of $35,000 total.
