‘The Quest’ Episode Guide (Aug. 7): The Paladins Prepare for Battle

“Tournament for the Queen” (08/07/14) – With the first Paladin banished from Everealm during the premiere episode, ABC’s “The Quest” continues with “Tournament for the Queen,” airing THURSDAY, AUGUST 7.

News comes from the battlefield that Verlox (Douglas Tait) and his dark army inch ever closer to Saenctum’s walls. The Paladins are called on to display their field skills under Queen Ralia’s (Susanne Gschwendtner) scrutiny. On horseback, the Paladins must go through a number of tasks to prepare them for battle. Who will crack under the pressure and be sent to the Fates? Who will be the next to be banished from Everealm?

The Paladins vying to emerge as the One True Hero are Shondo Blades (30, MMA Fighter from Houston, TX), Lina Carollo (27, School Counselor from Delran, NJ), Jim Curry (22, Student from Little Rock, AR), Andrew Frazer (25, Personal Trainer from West Hartford, CT), Bonnie Gordon (28, Property Manager from Lafayette, LA), Ashley Guerrero (35, Horse Trainer from Murrieta, CA), Patrick Higgins (41, High School Math Teacher from Joliet, IL), Jasmine Kyle (31, Mother and Homemaker from Media, PA), Adria Kyne (41, Marketing Director from Nashua, NH), Leticia Reyes (36, Executive Assistant from White Plains, NY), Katherine “Katie” Smaluk (26, Bartender from Chicago, IL) and Christian Sochor (23, Server from New York, NY).

“The Quest” was filmed on location in Austria and is executive produced by Bertram van Munster, Elise Doganieri, Mark Ordesky, Jane Fleming, Rob Eric and Michael Williams.

A genre-bending new reality series unlike anything else on television, “The Quest” premieres THURSDAY, JULY 31 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.
