At the back of the pack, The Rednecks have another morale crisis and think they're in last place. We know better after watching the ordeal with Gay Angst, but The Rednecks are certain they should just give up. They're content to just walk a steady pace toward the finish. At the finish, Akbar's Players come in fourth place. Akbar asks Salmoni which teams are left and he swiftly dodges the question, telling Akbar to just look at who's in the camp. Akbar immediately notices Team Gay Angst is missing. The S.W.A.T. finish fifth and are quite pleased with themselves after their last place scare at the initial challenge. Knowing it's between Gay Angst who are hoofing it and Rednecks who are currently loafing sets up a pretty epic finish. AJ says the worst case scenario is they're going to go out like ballers, which is probably the coolest thing anyone's said in a TH thus far. We cut to Gay Angst running and then Kari yells out, "Why is that team just standing there?" Kari is still crying in TH when she describes the scene of them spotting The Rednecks. Nick and Jason spot Team Gay Angst and call out to Chad to get a move on now they know they're back in the competition.
We're reminded of the epic showdown between Rednecks and Team Gay Angst. Nick says they decided to just power through after realizing they weren't in last. We hear AJ ordering his team to just keep walking until they get close to Rednecks and then to run. This oddly coincides with The Rednecks veering off up a staircase, claiming they're sticking closely to directions on their map. The route Gay Angst takes appears to be rougher, steeper terrain. Kari is gassed and asks to stop so she can take in some water. AJ bitches at her to keep going. Chad is gassed and his teammates bitch at him to keep going.
