The group is delivered to the "Panamanian restaurant," and Rupert is seated at the head of the table. There are seven meals on the table: a steak dinner with shrimp; potatoes; a salad (which, by the way, appears to include iceberg lettuce, of all things); a ham and cheese sandwich; a hot dog and sauerkraut with a glass of orange juice; a burger and fries; and the bowl of rice. Rupert starts with himself and chooses the steak. Jeff tells him that there's also an open bar with the steak dinner, and Rupert orders a beer. Rupert then allows Rob to choose, and he takes the burger. Jenna is then allowed to choose the hot dog. Amber chooses the sandwich. Alicia chooses the salad, saying that might have been her choice anyway. Shii Ann -- surprise -- rolls her eyes. Vancouver ho! Big Tom then chooses the potatoes. And Shii Ann, of course, gets the bowl of rice. "Leave the Asian girl with the rice," she whines. Yes, yes, you're very put-upon. Shut up. Big Tom interviews that they said the restaurant was supposedly really good, but he says, "I wouldn't hit a dog in the hind end with it, 'cause I got a tater and it was cold." Now, I realize that because it's Big Tom, we're supposed to be understanding about how not everything he makes sense. I am still calling a foul on the idea that you can hit a dog on the hind end with a restaurant. Oh, and also, there's a really stupid song about a guy at a fancy restaurant putting out his Cherries Jubilee with his bowl of vichyssoise, which I won't quote at length for you, though it's very tempting. Jeff comments that dinner may be awkward, but that at least they're warm and dry for a while.
