    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.

      @Easy E The only one who looks like she might be on something is Dana. The rest look quite natty, especially Mattie, Brook has a strong upper body, but I have seen women who I know for a fact are natty and they have the same physique. Maddie, just has big thighs which is actually normal for a women who specializes in deads and squats.
      They still look very feminine, if they were juicing, jawline would change, voice would change. The indicators would be much more pronounced. At most they might be on small doses of anavar, and even then it's a uneducated guess.

    So, it's kinda frustrating but at the same time really cool that these ladies are helping eachother. The lady w/ the most knowledge on each challenge is actually showing/teaching the others instead of just keeping it to themselves. Let this be a lesson ya'll.

    Brute Strength: We just made them deadlift, CrossFit, physique compared, clean sweep, ran sprints, 40M dash, vertical and horizontal jump. What other test should we put them through that’s just as difficult and measures fitness?
    Also Brute Strength: Make them do stuff that has no fitness requirements and a lot of variation (pitcher instead of pitching machine)
    If they wanted to test hand eye coordination, they could have them play wake a mole. But seriously, there are better ways to test hand eye coordination then baseball. The soccer thing is more technique then anything, and I think we can all agree eating food as fast as possible has nothing to do with fitness. But still, all these are measured in equal value as all other previous areas of fitness. If CrossFit is first, you placed last and “Bob” places first then hitting baseballs is next and Bob has never played and you have, you’ll more than likely tie with Bob after both events.

    Brooke coming back from injury dominates and wins, taking first or second in every single event - lifts, bodybuilding, and sports. An amazing athlete. All are amazing. All being friends by the end is not surprising as they all share the same interest - athletics - in different ways.

    The soccer thing was absurdly easy, all they need to learn and practice twice is kicking with the inner side of the foot. That creates the easiest straight shot, other way would be sticking with the literraly the tip of the foot that also makes a straight shot

    People can say what they want about Crossfit, but Brooke was either a winner or contender in all events. No weaknesses.
    It really does make you a well-rounded athlete before your spine falls apart like a Jenga.

    Let's be fair here, crossfit trains you to be just good enough in a lot of categories. When a competition is scored the way this one is set up, none of the other ladies had a chance. Rogers forever and always though. True athlete. Good luck 2020.

    So the two women who are clearly on steroids, took first and second. They also happen to have the largest frames. The powerlifter was a fraction of the size of the other women. And why did you guys have them do a bodybuilding pose off, as well as a crossfit session, but didn't include the olympic weightlifting totals, or powerlifting totals? Funny enough, the oly weightlifter still smoked them all in the actual athletic metrics (jumping, running, etc). And despite the fact that the powerlifter had the best Wilks score, you gave the crossfitter the win for the pull.
    This was a ridiculous semblance of competition, honestly. Clearly made to skew the numbers in favor of the two girls who won. No weight classes, allowing athletes to compete who use PED's, and failing to include weightlifting or powerlifting tests, while including a bodybuilding pose off, as well as a crossfit session.
    Also, you gave Mattie a single win, for beating the others at 3 different competitions -- the distance jump, vertical jump, and sprint -- which is totally different from how you scored it for the men. I guess it wasn't enough to pick a crossfitter who was twice the size of the oly lifter, and on PED's? You had to change the competition as well.
    Give me a fucking break.

      @Susie J The powerclean isn't an Olympic lift. It's an accessory lift. The clean and jerk, and the snatch are the two olympic lifts. A real weightlifting session would have been those two lifts, and a total.
      The deadlift is one third of an actual powerlifting meet. But they did a full crossfit session, and a bodybuilding pose off.

    Didn’t like brooke from episode 1 she seemed very cocky and arrogant, but she’s a good athlete. Love the other girls especially DLB. Good job ladies. Mattie was robbed in episode 4 when she won 3 event, but was given only one score.

    Eh... the ending was rather anti-climatic. Felt like I just finished Game of Thrones. The ending should've been anything but watermelon eating contest. There's calisthenics. There's shooting hoops. There's bench press. Just something that fits into what they specialize in.

    Stumbled across this. The series was interesting and for me, lifetime multi-sport athlete and current "older" Crossfitter, Brooke nailed it in the end. Its not about who's sport is better, its about what is right for you and that means you have to try many to find your personal niche. Seek out different communities, see what you enjoy and don't. The one thing that is common (and it showed on this show), there are amazing people in all sports and even it's not for you, you might just find some new friends along the way.
