Screenwriter Tom Pinchuk based this episode's story on experiences from his own hobby, running in competitive obstacle races with challenges (monkey bars, 10 foot walls, mud pits, wire crawls, etc) just like those Ben must get through. The bracelets the Weatherheads use to study the human condition were even inspired by wristbands racers are often made to wear to chart their course progress. See more
