Here are a few fun facts to get you even closer to the courses in Business Travel Challenge:

- Courses were 70 ft. - 80 ft. in length, built on stilt bases about 4 ft. tall and range 6 ft. - 25 ft. in height.
- Ball pits were 1 ft. - 8 ft. deep and filled with 56,000 gray balls.
- It took 310,000 gallons of water (85 truckloads) to fill the pool.
- Large dollar signs and body forms (dummies) had mechanical parts that were layered with vinyl and padding and were so heavy only cranes and trucks could move them around on set .
- There were 10 total cameras on every commercial's set: four cameras were stable on cranes or lifts, six cameras were attached to Contestants' helmets, vests and attached to various props; one crane stretched 100 ft. tall; the other 40 ft.
- Each actor had three sets of suits, outfits, shoes, etc, so that they could change after each stunt fall. After this shoot I have a new appreciation for the choreography and planning that goes into stunt acting. To help make it all look effortless, without a bead of sweat showing on anyone's brow, or pit stain after a day of filming, I applaud the make-up and wardrobe stylists that improvised in the desert elements. I bet you didn't even notice the ribs, chest, elbows, kneepads, and safety harnesses underneath the business suits, did'ya?
