As fans of Fox’s competition series American Grit, now airing its second season, know, the “grit” that is tested among the competitors is not only physical, but also mental and emotional.

In this exclusive clip from Sunday’s episode, intriguingly titled “Cena Does the Dishes,” we can see that already in just the second episode of the new season, mental and emotional grit is being pushed to the edge on Team Chloe.

Janessa kicks off the tension-filled moment as she confronts Alison with implications that she may not want this as much as she should. At one point, Alison explains that she thought Janessa was thinking that Alison was the “weakest link” in the group.
