As Evans was being pulled back to the original position, cameraman Zach turned the camera to Jon, who shook his head and gave a thumbs down.

The next shot showed Evans diving into a tank of water, and when Zach ask Jon, ‘What do you think of the dive jump?’ he just shook his head.

Evans was also seen shirtless carrying some dumbells around, which Jon also did not approve of, while another scene showed Evans being lowered onto a car from a wiring rig.
