CBS reality TV show The Amazing Race will pit contestants against South Korea’s best Street Fighter V pros.

According to Polygon, Evo 2016 champion Lee “Infiltration” Seon-woo and Lee “Poongko” Chung-gon will appear on this week’s episode of the show. The Amazing Race contestant must win a round against these pros.

You can check out a preview of the upcoming episode on Polygon.

The contestant will be provided coaches to teach them the basics of the game but will be given some handicaps if the challenge proves too tough. If the challengers can’t beat the pros within 10 rounds, the pros will play one-handed. If they still can’t beat the pros after 10 more rounds, the pros will play blindfolded.

This episode is the second “Roadblock” of the season, meaning only one contestant can participate in the challenge and is chosen randomly.

The Amazing Race is in its 29th Season and airs Thursdays at 10pm PT, with the Street Fighter V-focused episode airing May 25.
