Grandpa's Last Expedition is in last place already after their close scrape with elimination in stage one. Grandpa says their strategy is not to finish last. Wisdom: they have it. The Moustaches are first to the oasis checkpoint with instructions to the location of the next one at an olive mill 3.8 miles away. They're off on their camels and you start to get the feeling a team called "Gypsies" have some sort of destiny written in the stars for them when you see them all on camelback together. Akbar And The Players are not far behind. Rednecks follow. The remaining teams including Somewhat Limited, however, are left with nothing but crazy camels. They're so unpredictable, Blind Guy Erik chooses to get down and walk instead of risking being thrown off. At this point, Team Gay Angst is in fifth place. AJ gets kicked by a camel. Joe Camel kind of looks like a penis (thank you, Norm MacDonald). Coincidence?! Who wants to bet AJ thinks if he weren't gay, the camel wouldn't have underestimated and kicked him? AJ reiterates the camels are all nuts. NY's Worst Calendar Ever, Grandpa's Last Expedition and Valley Girls fall behind trying to get started with the camels. Team Gay Angst, Finding Nino, WGIYNIKA and The S.W.A.T. manage to gain ground on the lead three teams. The S.W.A.T. do so by choosing to run alongside their camels instead of riding. We cut to WGIYNIKA who appear to be having a good time with their camels when, all of a sudden, Lindsey asks to slow down because her camel appears upset. It starts bucking, she gets thrown off and trampled, but more like... possibly maybe stepped on. She whimpers in pain, probably mostly from the fall.
Lindsey peels herself off the ground and doesn't look like her head is caved in or anything. No blood, no nothing. Not even a scrape. But it's kind of scary that she's not aware if she was stepped on or not. Concussion? Internal trauma? Something? Nino comes over to ask if she's OK. She's fine, so he takes off. This fiasco causes WGIYNIKA to fall to the back of the pack. Other teams have already arrived at the olive mill, where they'll have to load six olive oil barrels onto their camels to transport to the lakeshore so they can form a raft to paddle to the next checkpoint at the nearby Island Kasbah. Akbar is the first to attempt to ride his camel with barrels in tow, and gets thrown clear. He quickly recovers. The S.W.A.T., in fifth place here, read off the instructions in amusement. Once they get things loaded up, Akbar And The Players end up neck-and-neck with The Moustaches and Rednecks, but The Rednecks use their expertise with construction and rafting to jump out to a huge lead. Jason of Rednecks says as much, as we see them make it halfway across the lake before any other team hits the water. Akbar on this southeastern phenomenon: "Mississippi River takes them everywhere." Somewhat Limited is in fourth place at this checkpoint. Jeff says all challenges have been visual thus far, as we watch Blind Guy Erik uselessly ask to help carry barrels and his teammates wave him off. The Moustaches trail closely behind The Rednecks in second place with Akbar And The Players in third. Player Robert blames the wind and players' size for difficulties. Hearrrrrrrd it.
