With all the hoopla about "eating every morsel" of the "international cuisine," I was fully expecting Fear Factor-style snacks of testicle tapas or something. The challenge starts with Los Angeles sushi. Not nads sushi, but regular old tuna rolls. Where's the Challenge? Most people pay for this. In a pathetic attempt at making this look hard, The Entertainer explains how much he hates it when his mom serves sushi for dinner. He is not happy about eating it, but he is willing to take one for the team and eat a roll. But he does it so slowly that the Green Team gets a huge head start and hits Las Vegas well before the Gold Team. In Las Vegas, they must eat a buffet-style smorgasbord of goodness: steak, mashed potatoes, macaroni salad and shrimp. They start pigging out while the Gold Team flounders some more due to Rodeo's attempts to throw the challenge. The Green Team heads to "Jamaica," while Rodeo chews each bite fifty times like her mama taught her.
Megan and her boobs eat jerk chicken. Rodeo is fake barfing while 12 Pack and The Entertainer scarf. Everyone is talking about how they have eaten so much, how hot it is, and how they feel ill and don't think they'll be able to make it, and basically making the challenge sound way harder than it actually is. Aside from the running, it looks like an average Friday night at King's Buffet to me. Also, it would probably help if they didn't chug a liter of water between each bite. As the Green Team hits Paris, the last stop on their tour de cuisine, Real tells us that the crepes are the most disgusting thing he has ever seen, since they look like they have poopoo on them. He eats it anyway. Brandi is having a hard time getting the crepe down and it looks like the Gold Team might be able to catch up. Just as Escoffier envisioned it, Brandi eats her crepe, pukes, drinks some water, eats some crepe, pukes again and eats some more crepes. Charmante! Meanwhile Rodeo is only on chew number 29 of her first bite of crepe, despite the encouragement of her teammates to choke on it if she has to, but eat! Eat! For the love of money, eat! She chews more slowly as the Green Team crosses the finish line. Real feels that this is the biggest comeback in American history. John McCain, the Red Sox and Ford totally agree with you, Real.
