100 Mile Challenge

Wednesday, August 18 – 10pm ET/PT on Global

Hosts James and Alisa call a summit meeting for the 100-milers to address concerns and lay down four main rules for the remaining 75 days of the challenge. The first three rules cover what can and cannot be eaten, and the fourth rule requires a penance from anyone who deviates from the challenge. Meanwhile, small transformations begin to affect the families.

With the challenge underway, sourcing salt, honey, wine and wheat becomes the top priority of the participating families. When the local grocer finds his wheat supply is well short of the amount ordered, panic ensues. Then, hosts James and Alisa fear that the challenge will prove too difficult without enough wheat and set out to find more of the precious commodity. And when the Hawes family discovers a loophole in James and Alisa’s book, they take full advantage of it, sparking a heated debate among the challengers.
