Trahan attempted to recreate a hit MrBeast video of Last to Leave the Circle. Starting off his quest to recreate this, he bought some red paint to create a circle. However, the money to buy paint came out from the prize pool, decreasing the total prize money to $8.66. After creating a circle with paint, Trahan set out for the most important task, to find the contestants. This interaction was a funny one to watch, as Trahan tried to convince people to join for a prize of less than $10.

He did manage to convince 10 people to join, but four backed off at the last moment. To fill the remaining three spots, he got Tyler, a past MrBeast challenge contestant, and two of his close friends to join. Finally, the challenge commenced and two participants left in an instant.
