It seems The Moustaches are not immune to infighting, or at least pressure from the showrunners to appear to have the potential for infighting. Eric and Taylor get the idea to stop at a local coffee shop for some tea since they're so far ahead. John hates the idea. It really seems out of character for any of The Gypsies to be against taking in some culture when at the very worst they could maybe, but not likely, drop to second place. Inside the shop, Taylor just keeps telling John to relax because they've been killing it and it's literally tea time (2:00 PM). They finish their tea and as they're coming out of the shop, they spot Somewhat Limited and Valley Girls at the bottom of the cliff they're on. They resume their comfortable lead while they praise Somewhat Limited in TH voice-over for remaining in second place despite their setback.
Back at the anagram puzzle, Team Gay Angst is just dead. There's no other way to describe how beaten they are by this puzzle and the circumstance in which they have to try to figure it out. AJ's just lying on the ground staring at the various activity icons on the wooden sign and Kari's bawling. Ryan THs that they really thought they just would not solve this puzzle. The team has no clue even after going out of their way to get a clue.
We're reminded Gay Angst is stuck on the anagram puzzle. Ryan says they made a big mistake and should've stuck with the pack. AJ, the pragmatic person he unwittingly is, just starts saying aloud what he's seeing of the activities depicted. Almost magically he just considers the possibility it could have something to do with the first letter of each one. He's almost disgusted with how easily he figures it out from there. The team hops up and figures they might still have a shot since Ike is on a broken ankle. In reality, they're twenty minutes behind The Rednecks who are in sixth place.
The Moustaches finish first with no real fanfare. How awesome would it have been if Salmoni had been there waiting to offer them tea? Alas, Salmoni doesn't care about being entertaining. Salmoni only cares about Salmoni. Close behind, Somewhat Limited finishes second. "Are you kidding me?!" Salmoni actually sounds excited. Jeff THs about how proud he is of Ike for sucking it up. Salmoni: "Ike, what made you think that with a broken leg you could finish this course?" Ike says he owes it to his team and they've come too far to stop now. Salmoni: "I think you're the baddest dude I've ever seen. You're the exact guy we want protecting the United States. Thank you." The Valley Girls were directly behind Somewhat Limited and were credited with finishing third. Christina says in TH they now know what it tastes like to be one of the top teams.
