Heather falls

Heather jumps from a waterfall in Jamaica Me Sweat.

In Jamaica Me Sweat, the first half of the challenge takes part on a waterfall. One member from each team must dive into the lake from the top of the waterfall and search for Chef's gold karaoke chains, while watching out for electric eels and sharks. Upn surfacing, they must run back up and tag to their respective teammates.

The beginning of Niagara Brawls has contestants falling on some swan boats out of the plane, dangerously trying to escape the waterfall. The waterfall also plays a huge part in the second half of the challenge, where the couples must walk over Niagara Falls, on a tightrope, with the grooms carrying their brides, and for a dangerous twist, Chris added some sharks to the water below the Falls. The challenge starts, and Heather and Alejandro argue over who will be eliminated. After Heather's bickering, Alejandro "accidentally" loses his balance, sending him and Heather falling into the waterfall. After Sierra and Cody are rejected by the Chef, the two then run into Owen and Blaineley on the tightrope. As neither of them wish to move back, they all end up falling into the water after Sierra kicks Owen in the knee and pulls Blaineley's hair extensions for upsetting Cody.After Duncan and Courtney win the challenge, the contestants who had fallen down earlier are seen trying to swim away from the sharks.
