The previously on segment is wrong, as it claims that last week the Cootes got their first loss. Not true! Remember when the Pollards won a challenge in Branson and got to stay at a hotel overnight? How do I know more about this show than the people who make it? It's morning in Vegas, and the teams are heading for Boulder City for the King of the Road challenge. Jennifer Coote says this is now a game for her. Um, it's always been a game for her. Or perhaps this is her way of saying she's loosening up, since it used to be a life-or-death battle and now it's just a game? She says it's also important that the Cootes increase their crown count to six so they'll have an even number, because she's a got a touch of OCD apparently. Over in the DiSalvatore RV, they really want to win the challenge. Blake especially, as it comes with a cool pillow. Such awesome prizes on this show, I swear. Amy tells Silvio that he never has to buy her another birthday card or present ever again if they win this and Silvio ensures that it won't happen by saying he'll have to bring 100% Silvio. Silvio, his hair looking wild in this interview, says he will do anything to win this.
The teams arrive in Bootleg Canyon, and the challenge can't possibly be this soon into the show, right? The road is apparently too much for the RVs to handle, so the families pile into cars and drive into nowhere, where there happens to be a nice long zipline high up in the air. Everyone seems to dread this, but I'd be so excited. Those things are awesome. Reno greets everyone at the top of hill and I know there's no way he climbed up there himself like the families had to. Mostly because he's not still at the halfway point with vultures picking over the remains of his heart-attack-ravaged body. He says a win today is especially important, as it guarantees a place in the finals. The challenge is to get on the zipline and ride it down with paint-filled water balloons in hand, and hit targets on the ground with them as you glide by. Also, the targets have contestants' faces in them. And Reno's. EVERYONE HIT RENO!!! Each family gets one point per target hit, but if any family member refuses to ride the zipline, then the entire family is automatically disqualified. It's about time this show had a real decent challenge. Why couldn't they all have been like this?
The mothers go first, leaving the fathers and kids to stew and get nervous about what's head. Over with the moms, Amy doubts her family will participate in this at all. Amie is more nervous than "a three-legged cat in a litterbox." Wait, what? Why would the cat be nervous? Does he only have three legs because another litterbox chopped the fourth one off in the past somehow? And is it a cat at all, as we know that Amie has trouble identifying animals since she confused a squirrel with a prairie dog. The women go at the same time, and Amie and Jennifer both manage to land a balloon, but only Jennifer's gets inside the stupid circle. The good news is that the target both women hit is Reno! He's waiting for them at the bottom with high-fives. Amy thinks positive and says there's no way anyone else from her family will do this.
