There are less than twenty minutes left when Red finishes as well. Demoted to Merchant Class. Green, meanwhile, is coming apart in more ways than one. Whereas the Blue team constructed an irrigation system that was elegant and efficient, Green's strategy seems to be to try and attach whatever component they grab next, regardless of its shape, length, or angle, resulting in a haphazard assembly that looks like a vodka-fueled collaboration between Rube Goldberg and M.C. Escher. Yellow finishes with less than five minutes to spare, and Green stands and watches them sadly, until someone reminds them that the town's reward is still up for grabs. But even with the other teams cheering them on, they only have one minute left by the time Sophia is standing on the step behind their water wheel, waiting to make the final connection. "Come on, guys, we wanna get that prize!" shrieks an unknown girl on the Red team. And -- commercials.
There are only twenty seconds left when we come back. Green is still twirling pipes around every which way. The screaming Red girl screams her scream again. Either that was repeated footage, or she is mute now. Jonathan's countdown of the last five seconds is dramatically slowed by the editors, but it's not enough. When he reaches zero, Sophia is desperately trying to complete an open connection by wrapping her hands around it in place of the joint connector she needs there. Which works about as well as you'd expect. And that green water wheel? Doesn't turn one degree. No reward for you!
