Richard & Ashlee were sorted into the "Acrobats" category in Judgment Week. The duo's performance in Episode 908 consisted of hand balancing feats such as a backflip in the air and Ashlee standing on one foot on Richard's head. Richard & Ashlee's performance was not strong enough for the judges to send them to the Quarterfinals, eliminating them from the competition that same episode.
