    The end is here! On the final episode of the Brute Showdown we see the ladies take on the last three events, which include softball, soccer and an eating contest. We have seen a shake up in the standings as we progressed through the last few events, can the ladies close the gap and take the lead from our current leader, Brooke Ence?
    Event 6: Softball “Hit-off”
    Each of the ladies will be pitched to by an LSU softball player. They are allowed 6 total strikes and will be awarded a point for every ball that is kept in fair play. Highest number of hits wins!
    Event 7: Soccer Shoot Out
    The ladies will go through 2 iterations of 3 shots from various spots along pitch, with 15 seconds on the clock they will be awarded a point for every ball that makes it into the net.
    Event 8: Watermelon eating contest
    The ladies will have 2 minutes to consume as much of a watermelon as they can. The athlete that consumes the most watermelon wins.

    Great showdown! However just wondering why Vertical, Broad, Sprints were not all separate categories like they were in the Men's challenge? I just doesn't seem logical to bundle up power jumps, agility and speed all into one category for only 4 points.

  • Emily Jones

    To be honest if they were ever to do another episode of this, they should have the competitors participate in sports that none of them have an upper hand in... Maybe tennis, swimming, golf, even fkn dodgeball. And please no more watermelon eating.

    "honestly, when I found out about the boys were getting to do an event like this, I was pretty ticked - I was pretty mad" what, why??

  • The Gum Under The Table

    Great series, all four athletes were charming in their own way
    Looking back, I think a factor that no one has really talked about but that influenced a lot in the results is age aka experience. DLB and Brooke have had more time to try new things and familiarize themselves with more diverse stuff while Matty and Maddy have stuck more to their sport and haven't had as much time to expand their horizons. Still tho, loved them all!

    Not to be mean but I think they needed a better pitcher if they are going the route of not using a machine because more than half of the balls she is throwing are not even in the strike zone.

    Used to work with a few body builders pulling cable as industrial electricians. I was always shocked how much they complained we were outpacing them and how their muscle was "show muscle". Of course we put them in areas that'd be challenging for the best to test there mettle.

    These girls are amazing athletes. The amount of training they have all put in is awe inspiring. The watermelon at the end watching them try not to laugh and eat because they are all hyper competitive. These women smiled the whole way through, this should get a lot of share.

    hey @Brute Strength was an awesome series loved last year and this year, perhaps we can have a girls V boys same categories next time? with some sort of averaging to make it all fair would be fun to see, Also i think they should get coaching time with a proper coach for each of the categories so the people who aren't skilled in an area get a chance to learn some basics prior to competing even up the playing field a tad, either way looking forward to the next one!

    I don't feel like this was a very balanced competition. The overall competition focused primarily on cardio and legs. There where a lot of muscle groups they didn't measure and the watermelon thing was kind of a joke. The athletes themselves are all impressive though.

    Honestly Loved watching this series, totally started watching to see the beauties but kept watching because it was amazing to see them all push through, Brooke went beast mode on everything she did, she is well rounded, i was rooting for Mattie and Maddy tho. Maddy impressed me with her determination during the crossfit. all around it was great. it was awesome to see them rooting for each other,they were pushing themselves and each other.


    Inspired me this girls, is like a family, fun, honest and full humor I proud for them. is change the life stile... Thank you..

    They should have weighed the watermelon pieces of all competitors before and after eating. Great to see Brook win! I started rooting for her after the second event. Good series. Watched everything in one sitting.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care for Brooke's personality? I feel like she has a stuck up attitude that's not sitting well with me. She's an incredible athlete.. but maybe too much pride.

  • Cole Lawton
    Cole Lawton 16 days ago

    This was the most unscientific approach they could have taken to testing. They chose sports which girls already had experience in... which completely unravels the concept they started with. They are supposed to be testing Power Lifters against Crossfitters etc, not Brook the former softball player against Maddy who's never played the sport.
    That's honestly retarded. They should have chosen events none of them have ever done before. Like an obstacle course, snowboarding, golf, or wrestling.

    Can y'all do more series of these for the men and women. But next time please get powerlifters that aren't at the extreme ends of body weight/size. I absolutely love Maddie but she's on the small end of women powerlifters and yall picked a super heavy weight for the guys.

    I just really dont like Brooke. Her attitude just throws me off. I love the humbleness of Mattie. And the humor and determination of Maddie and DLB. I felt like these three woman really supported each other and cheered eachother on. I just didnt get that vibe from Brooke.

    So the finale episode was a let down. Sports and an eating competition..? What does hitting a ball with a bat or eating a watermelon have to do with fitness training. Good show overall but this was the worst episode of this series.
