The staff reveals that the location of the mission is in the current place they are in. It is further revealed that all Running Man members and special guests will spend the day playing games. But there is a catch in that, in order to enjoy the MT and the house they are going to be staying in for the day. they must purchase sections of land that are located throughout the house.
All teams are able to purchase land, however, they must trade in their belongings that they have in order to gain R money. R money is useful in purchasing land and items needed throughout the day. There is a pawnshop that was made available for all teams to trade in their belongings. Another rule to the game is that if a team runs out of R money or goes bankrupt, their team will be eliminated from the rest of the mission. So it is advantageous to have a lot of R money to purchase land.
Initial R Money earnings:
Orange Team – 416 R
Blue Team – 420 R
Red Team – 510 R
Green Team – 501 R
In order to determine who goes inside the house to purchase their land, all teams selected a representative to play in the one-legged fight. The outcome brought the Orange team to first place while the Red team came in second, Blue team at third and the Green team in last place.
