Finding Nino is in seventh here, but Joe seems to think in TH they're in direct competition with Somewhat Limited (fourth) and WGIYNIKA (ranking not listed at this juncture). Joe says he doesn't want to get beat by girls or a blind guy. I got news for you, guy. If you're that insecure, you've already lost the game. Fireman Mike commends the girls in the competition for all the heavy lifting and physicality they've endured. He can sense they want to get the guys out. Then, it's time for this episode's telegraphed moment. For some reason, we're treated to WGIYNIKA's Mac putting on her water shoes and declaring she's not wearing socks like everyone else. This couldn't possibly be vital information. She complains some more about missing out on normal, 18-year-old things like her prom for this. Pff... honey, you can get felt up in the back of a camel out here after dancing if you want. The Rednecks and The Moustaches arrive at the island as Grandpa's Last Expedition flounders in last place. To top it off, their camels run off with their barrels. Dagnabbit!
The Rednecks arrive at the Island Kasbah checkpoint first. The instructions are to paddle (more?!) one mile northeast to the Shamil Cove, then trek another mile to the overnight camp. Rednecks' Nick says rafting was just brutal. The middle of the pack continue to have trouble with the rafting. NY's Worst Calendar Ever are in eighth, Valley Girls in tenth. Valley Girl Natalie says they felt like they weren't getting anywhere no matter how they paddled. This sets up a big move from Dick of Grandpa's Last Expedition. They're just five minutes behind Valley Girls, who are just barely behind WGIYNIKA. Dick's team manages to gain ground. Lindsey reveals that her team became depressed by having to paddle another mile after reaching the island checkpoint. This enables Grandpa's Last Expedition to pass them up. For Dick, he says he felt like he's picked up an overall momentum through the three stages, like running a long race. Natalie's completely embarrassed about having her team passed up by Dick.
