Six colored balls would be dropped through a maze of poles. Whoever caught a ball got to put any two people on that color team, as long as they did not put themselves on a team. It was announced as a twist that the last two people standing, thus who would be on a team together, would get two pieces.
The next ball is the red ball. It bounces into Layla's arms and she defends it against 3 boys. Then she chooses Christian to be on the red team. Christian's partner is supposed to be Ashley, and Ashley's best friend Sabrina is committed to getting the two on a team. When Layla hesitates, Sabrina whispers behind her, "Ashley. Do it." Layla then chooses Ashley to be with Christian.
The purple ball is dropped, and Jenna, Chelsea, and Layla immediately dive for it. However, Jenna is able to beat the other two to grab the purple ball. She chooses Brandon to be on the purple team, but is unsure about who should be his partner because Lana is already on a team. After some calls of "Just do what you want, the list is already messed up!", Jenna decides to put Layla with Brandon to form the purple team.
When the orange ball is dropped, Max immediately catches it again. He decides to put Chelsea on the orange team and take Jenna as his partner, despite Max and Chelsea's close friendship. Skyler is the only boy left, so he goes on the orange team with Chelsea, leaving Max and Jenna to be on the gray team, and earn two pieces to everyone else's one.
The seven teams are formed, gray takes the early lead, and green has partner issues because they weren't originally supposed to be on the same team according to Jonna's list.
