The Day of May 02
The mud circuit was the stage where the athletes met in a day where what happens at the moment would be decisive to guarantee that they continue. On May 2 the knights are at stake. Elimination Sunday began with two experienced gentlemen, Octavio “El León Azul” González, and Jacobo García, where it was Jacobo who put the scoreboard one to zero in favor of the Contestants.

Even so, today there were different impeccable passes of replacements that have arrived weeks later to the competition, as is the case of Mirna Alma, who on the day of May 2, scored the first point for the blue team.
It was the champion soccer player Norma Palafox, who put the scoreboard in favor of the Reds with a 2 to 1 and then continued to accumulate points, it is obvious that the Famous do not want it to be an exclusive duel for their team. Regarding Dave Sappelt, Norma told Exatlon champion and commentator Chelly Cantú that her greatest contribution to the team is her competitive spirit, which is so necessary when it comes to moving forward.
Cowboy Kelvin Noeh Renteria was the one who gave the touch of emotion to a fight that was outlined even since its inception. There is no doubt that no team wants to lose today.
The Celebrities focused on widening the points gap from the start, and that’s why the advantage became obvious very early in the matchmaking rounds, they were unstoppable which made it harder for the Contestants to call.
The Tarzan of the Arenas, Jacobo García, put the Famous in Match Point, and it was the boxing champion, Jeyvier Cintrón, who gave the reds the necessary point to triumph so the elimination duel was between Joseph Padilla and Dave Sappelt, a heart attack duel, here, Sappelt refused to use his safe conduct medal, he won and the dream within Exatlon United States culminated for Joseph Padilla.
