To find out which partner is the real power house, their shift will include “The Pink Slip,” “The Playpound” and “The Smallsy Factory.” Our crew will includes the “Shaft Squad,” “Front Deskers” and “Virus Patrol” all doing their best to demonstrate their top notch skills. Since most will be fired, only one team will take home a huge cash prize and move on to “The Tournament of Champions” at the end of the season.
