Former NFL player, Danny Amendola has passed every challenge the DS have thrown his way. But, has the competition gotten to be too much for the athlete? During a heated altercation with Mark "Billy" Billingham, Danny threatens to quit. So, does he leave Special Forces?

In Episode 5, aptly titled "Pressure," it seems Danny reaches his breaking point. After completing the pressure test exercise, the former professional athlete gets into a heated exchange with Billy. Danny claims that he feels disrespected by the Staff member and threatens to exit the competition. Though his co-stars convince Danny to remain in the competition, fellow recruit Mike Piazza also states that if Danny leaves the game, he too will tap.
Later that night, Danny is called into a meeting with the Directing Staff. Billy tries to explain to Danny that their job is to put pressure on the recruits and see who can shake off their remarks and fall in line. In the final moments, Danny continues to engage in a heated face-to-face discussion with Billy. Unfortunately, the episode ends before it is revealed if Danny will exit the show before day 10.
So, will Danny be the next recruit to leave the challenge? If so, will Mike be right behind him?
