The Wedge returned in Stage Two as the Double Wedge, replacing Roulette Row from the previous season. This iteration of The Wedge was 22 feet across and it worked similarly to it's single-wall set counterpart, but competitors had to lache to a second Wedge at the end of the first one. Of the six competitors who attempted this obstacle, four of them failed: Josh Levin, Jake Murray, Brian Arnold, and Chris Wilczewski. Only Drew Drechsel and Daniel Gil were able to defeat this obstacle.
