Keep Track of the Competition

A Ford sales representative from Blair, Nebraska was one of 10 contestants competing to sell Jimmy Fallon a truck in the Tonight Show's "Fingers On A 4x4" Challenge.

Jesse Gloystein gave is his best shot but fell from the competition Tuesday night.

Competitors have to keep their hands on a Ford F-150 King Ranch for as long as possible, and the last person left standing gets to sell the truck to Fallon.

Jesse is a Woodhouse Ford employee.

We spoke to him on his cell phone Tuesday and asked him how his legs were holding up.

"Funny you ask. I got some advice,” he said. “Basically people said make sure you stretch, maybe during your break make sure you take short jogs and then stretch a little bit and get yourself some water."

But it wasn't long afterward that he got flagged for illegal motion. There was a review of the play and then came Jesse's tweet:

"Video showed I removed my hands a couple hours ago, wish I could have finished, but a bad break and I appreciate all support!"

Crews from "The Tonight Show" expect the contest to last until Thursday.
