The Showdown continues, and Green gets it right before Yellow finishes, so they're the Merchant class. Blaine struggles with the final step for Yellow, and he admits in an interview, "I didn't know much about my electronical history." Blaine decides that he's done as Red gets its last pie. Jonathan starts reading off Blaine's inventions. "Television first!" he notices right off. "Blaine, you're an idiot!" Greg yells. It's also worth noting that each slot on the little board is marked with a year, which means Blaine thought the television was invented in 1837. Let's just take a moment to reflect on what Victorian television would have been like. Mmmm, repression. Needless to say, all the rest of Blaine's plates are in the wrong slots, too. DK is still trying to order his plates, and Mike is yelling from the sending tower that he's positive the typewriter came before the telegraph (he's wrong; see above). There are only four minutes left.
Meanwhile, everyone on Yellow is yelling at Blaine, until Zach takes control and shouts -- clearly, deliberately, and apparently from memory -- the correct order. "I think Blaine is a moderately intelligent young man," Zach interviews. We see Blaine yelling back at Zach, "Radio comes before phonograph because phonograph had CDs!" Hee. "Moderately smart," Zach reiterates, and you can tell it hurts him to be that generous. DK raises Red's flag before Blaine raises Yellow's, but he's got the wrong order for everything but radio and television. But Yellow got it right, so they're the Cooks. DK seethes. Meanwhile, the rest of his team has put some spare pie plates in the right order, which they're sending up to Mike in the bucket so that he can relay them to DK. But DK thinks it's just Mike being wrong some more, so he's not listening. There's only a minute left. He interviews that he thought the job would be easy: "And that's a lie. It's the most stressful thing I've ever done in my entire life!" Greg yells at DK that they don't want to lose the reward. "I'm confuuused!" DK wails, holding the flag and not moving pie plates in any way whatsoever.
