On the final episode of Full Metal Jousting, there were two jousts: the $25,000 joust between Rope Myers and John Stikes and the championship joust between Josh Knowles and Matt Hiltman. Rope won the $25,000 joust and we were glad. We probably liked Rope the most out of all the guys on Full Metal Jousting. It wasn’t that great of a joust since mostly they just missed each other. They both were not having their best day.
In the final joust between Josh Knowles and Matt Hiltman, we could really see a difference in attitude, at least from the coaches’ words. For instance, Matt’s coaches were saying things like stick it in Josh’s neck and go kill him. Josh’s coaches were just encouraging him, reminding him who he was trying to win for and also telling him how to do better on the next run. We like it better when people stick to skill.
It was a really close match but Josh Knowles won $100,000 in the end by one point. We were really glad that he and Rope won the jousts. This was probably the only time when both people we wanted to win won.
