Too Good To Be True

So where does the equality come in? Well, the teams have to drag a total of a ton -- a ton -- of rocks in order to win the reward for the town. "Five hundred pounds each," says resident math whiz Sophia. Jonathan adds that you can't go back for more rocks once you cross the starting line. "So," Jonathan asks, "are you going to be the District that carries their weight to help Bonanza City win the reward? Or are you going to carry as little as possible to race to become the Upper Class? It's totally up to you. How fair are you guys?" Well, when you put it that way. I should also point out that at the loading stage of the course, each team is separated from the others by a high partition, so that there's no way of knowing how much the team next to you has loaded into their sled. There's also no way of knowing how much you loaded into your sled, because there's no scale at the starting line and the rocks aren't labeled by weight. And keep in mind that the sleds themselves aren't exactly Tupperware. Looks like the producers' thumbs are on the scale here. Yes, I know that metaphor is a bit heavy-handed. Yes, I know I just did it again.
