Time for the weigh-in. Jonathan makes the kids schlep the rocks from their sleds into the bins hanging from each team's scale. Mallory interviews that since she weighs forty pounds, "It'd be fifty me's to equal a ton." Don't be getting any ideas for Season Two now, Kid Nation. I'm not recapping a ton of identical, spunky, pretending-not-to-be-embarrassed-by their-fifty-identical-older-sisters Mallorys. Blue's total weight in rocks? 480 pounds. As Jonathan remarks, "One of the strongest Districts pulled less than a quarter of what the town needs to win the reward." Not a good sign. Yellow's rocks total 460 pounds. Not looking good. And then Green turns out to have hauled a pathetic 420 pounds. "That's...pretty sad," Mike interviews. So let's see how the Red team did, and whether dragging enough to make them come in last paid off. As Jonathan says, that's going to take 640 pounds. Yikes. Well, they do end up having gotten more than anyone, but they still only got 485 pounds. No reward! In other words, not a single team moved a quarter-ton. Now, you could probably make a case that if you prorated the age and size of each team, there's no way they could all be expected to have pulled the same weight. Yellow couldn't match Blue's pulling power, Blaine or no Blaine. But on the other hand, the district that carried the most, Red, is probably the third-strongest team.
