With no fanfare, Akbar's Players finish third, NY'sWCE fourth, Cops fifth and Finding Nino sixth. Assuming Valley Girls and Team Gay Angst will take the seventh and eighth spots, that leaves WGIYNIKA and Rednecks in a race for last place. They arrive at the farming terraces together. Nick gets the guys together to construct their plow, applying their woodcraft expertise. While this goes on, Valley Girls and Team Gay Angst cross the finish together, with Valley Girls being credited with seventh place. AJ credits his teammates for pulling him through such a miserable day for him. Back at the terraces, WGIYNIKA is struggling with the challenge and Kelsey says they're freaking out. Frustration!
We're given our standard reminder one team is going home, as if we have no idea by now how this show works or don't understand there's supposed to be drama here. Both teams are pretty demoralized until Rednecks strike canister. As if they weren't already defeated enough, WGIYNIKA watches this happen. We next see The Rednecks cross the finish. Chad says he'll need to step it up. Echoing that sentiment, Salmoni does what he does so well and states the obvious to The Rednecks -- if they end up in ninth next time, they're going home. Back at the terraces, it's all depression and tears for WGIYNIKA. Kelsey cries as they continue plowing. They finally find the canister and go through the motions, knowing they've already been eliminated. Mac, probably happy to be going home to her teenage life, is still chipper: "I love you guys!" We spend their trek to the finish with Lindsey's voiceover praising her younger sisters. When they cross the finish they're all just silent and like husks of their usually bubbly selves. Kelsey says no matter how it turned out they'll go home proud. Mac says she never even thought she could do any of this. The other teams are assembled and the helicopter comes for them. Kelsey says doing this together was perfect. They'll go home proud. Mac thinks she's not a little girl anymore. She's 18. She's an adult now. Tell that to bars and nightclubs when you get home, dear. In any case, she thinks her sisters can now start leaning on her like she leans on them. Kelsey cries in the helicopter, saying she'll miss the people. But you know what? They won't not be in Kansas anymore.
Next time: Map drawing on bodies. Teams slipping on mountain rappel. Foot race hiking. Add The Moustaches finally go down maybe?
