Upon arrival, the contestants were excited to be experiencing not only Las Vegas, but also one of the city’s premier resorts. They were treated by an incredible lunch prepared just for them by Celebrity Chef Bradley Ogden.

Afterward, the contestants cooled off by taking a dip and tossing beach balls in the Neptune Pool at Garden of the Gods, the new 5-acre oasis with eight distinct pools, 18ft waterfall and swim-up blackjack.
