walk-off

noun; analogy
a competition between models in which the first makes their way down a runway in a fashion that is difficult to replicate (cartwheels, complicated turns, dancing, etc). The second must then copy the first, and then add on to it (similar to a game of Pig) In the movie Zoolander, Ben Stiller plays Derek Zoolander, a male model with a big heart but a small brain. In one scene, he challenges Hansel, a newcomer to the male modeling scene, to a walk-off in order to determine which is the best. Hansel wins when he takes off his underwear without removing his pants; Derek can’t do this, so he is eliminated.
 
Are you challenging me to a walk off?
Etymology : A play on run-off, a type of election to determine which of two top candidates is the winner
