At first it appears to have been the wrong decision. Michael thinks Tanner P is "big and cool and smart." Tanner P. only feels the same way about Michael if Michael has nice-looking feet. Anyway, Michael and Tanner appear to be the first to open up the maps that are in the car, which seems to have a location on it. Meanwhile, Brad and Wes are not getting along.
So where in the world is Jillian? She's at a jewelry store, where she picks out four necklaces, and says the teams can decide which one suits her best.
So then Tanner and Michael are in the Shirtless Douche Carpool Only lane, and Jillian calls them all (either on a conference call or she made separate calls that have been edited to appear to happen at the same time) to say she's sorry she had to "jet" but it's all part of her master plan, and they find out that no one has rescued her yet, and Michael admits in an interview that he was so excited to find out that they were still in the running that he peed a little in his bathing suit. "I was like a little kid at Christmas," he says, and I hate to tell Michael that with the exception of maybe my first Christmas, I didn't pee all over myself.
So then we see some of the other contestants in The Amazingly Stupid Race looking for the flag, which has a big rose on it, and they run down a back alley of a restaurant where they find tuxedos to put on, and then after some frantic searching for the next clue, one of them finds it in his pocket: "If you want to win Jillian's heart, your [sic] going to have to lay it all on the line," it reads. Not that that helps them at all -- they even try cooking with the supremely patient kitchen staff in hopes that that's what's meant by laying it all on the line -- until finally Brad notices the next card tacked up with the other orders. Oh, of course! How could they not figure that out? "My 'best friends' are waiting for you down the street. Head through the front doors and turn left. If you can't find the flag, ask Neil for directions," it says. Brad and Wes are out the door, and then not too far behind them are Brian and Ed, who actually wind up at the location first. It's a jewelry store, and her "best friends" are diamond necklaces, and Brad and his partner bond over both picking the same necklace and they get the next clue and head out. Brad and Wes are still looking around, and then they get passed by... who are these guys again? I can't keep these guys straight.
