Team Gay Angst has pushed up to third, but Kari needs to stop again. The interesting issue here is Kari needs a bush to be able to do her business, but bushes are a little hard to come by. Ryan says it's not like you can just stop at a gas station. The S.W.A.T. pass up Gay Angst while they're waiting on Kari. AJ is mortified because, as he says, "Kari screamed at [him] for five days when [he] was getting sick and [he] kept going." Ryan is amazingly level-headed and understanding the day after he and AJ went at it, and says they don't need to give Kari a life lesson right now and just need to focus on themselves and continue on. AJ yells at Kari to get her ass moving and she yells out, invisible behind a bush, for him to shut up.
The Moustaches get to the next set of instruction first, which say the final instructions are buried there at the farming ruins. To find them, they'll need to use an ancient form of navigation -- two poles and a chain. Of course! Their current set of instructions has a series of questions, the answers to which will provide the compass bearing they need to use with the poles and chain to navigate to the dig site. Akbar's Players get to the challenge next, as Moustaches are figuring out the first question: "How many points are on the star on our host nation's flag?" That would be five, which means the first coordinate is five degrees on the compass. Team Gay Angst manages to catch up and reaches the challenge third. The teams are having no trouble answering the questions. "The average adult camel has two more teeth than a human." Akbar knows the answer is "thirty-four." The S.W.A.T. and Valley Girls arrive at the challenge in that order with Really Limited completely behind the pack. Ike says his pain is getting worse. On a scale of one to ten, it's a ten. Jeff suggests they stop and wait to be picked up, but Ike just wants to finish the day. Erik astutely points out Ike's assessment of his pain is on a soldier's scale, so it should be taken very seriously.
Back at the weird poles challenge, Akbar's Players and The Moustaches are in fierce competition to finish the challenge first. Akbar thought it was the perfect time to strangle The Moustaches. Both teams start digging for the last set of instructions and easily find them. The instructions give the final coordinate to the finish. As the two teams take off to the finish, Team Gay Angst realizes they got one of their answer wrong and have to backtrack a bit. For all Akbar's tough talk about strangling gypsies, there's no relief to their endless tyranny. They claim first again. Akbar's team looks completely dejected as they accept second place, and deservedly so. Who else is tired of The Moustaches always winning? Show of non-haired upper lips, please. Not sure how this makes sense, but Ricky says the competition is now like the playoffs in football and it's "win or go home." They did not win today. Gay Angst and S.W.A.T. dig up their instructions and head for the finish in that order with no incident.
