A pedometer is designed to sense body motion and count footsteps while walking or running. In this challenge, however, it will be used to count head jerks. With a pedometer attached to their forehead, the contestant must accumulate one-hundred twenty-five clicks.
With a pedometer attached to the forehead, move the head around to record at least a certain number of "steps" in a minute.

Tips & Tricks
Concentrate on moving only your head and neck, rather than expending extra energy shaking the rest of your body. Keep your neck as relaxed as possible so it doesn't stiffen up. Secure the headband as well as you can before you start so you don't have to waste time fixing it during the game.
