With that, Kota sits Paloma out and the race begins. And -- okay, I'm sure you've all already heard about this or noticed it for yourselves, but Marcus has chosen to wear his boxer briefs during this competition and his penis has decided to come out for air. These things happen, but what's weird is that it's so blatant and the editors either didn't see it to blur it out or decided to leave it in and see if anyone else would notice. And it happens more than once! It's so obvious that I watched this episode on my freaking IPOD (a 5g iPod too -- not the sharper-screened iPod classic) and I still saw it! How could this happen? Well, my theory is that since almost everyone who works behind the scenes at Survivor is a man, you have plenty of the dirty old man editors pouring over shots of half-naked women looking for nipple slips, but when it comes to men's crotches, they're not so attentive. But there really is no excuse for it, since each episode has an editing team specially dedicated to just the challenge segments. If they can't spare a few minutes to look at their final product before sticking it in the episode, that's pathetic. And hilarious!
Over at Fang, I'm grateful to say that Randy has managed to keep his dick in his underwear, but he can't conceal his dickish attitude as he literally shoves Gillian out of the way so he can push the boulder. And then Probst, the biggest dick of all, has to point out that Gillian isn't helping her team as if that's her fault.
Kota lifts Bob onto the boulder to untie the keys. Ken does the same for Fang, although he appears to be a bit slower. Both teams head down a hill, and Fang rams their boulder into Kota's, knocking them off course. This gets them a small lead, but Probst does not say anything positive about Fang because he hates them so much. He happily points out when Bob's quick key untying skills gets Kota the lead again, though.
Both teams approach the gate and start working the locks. They have six keys for three locks. "How lucky are you?" Probst says. "Lucky!" Randy responds. Uh, Randy? I think that was rhetorical. Also, you're wrong. You are not lucky. Look at you. Look at your attitude. Not lucky. Of course, Kota gets their gate open first and although they have some trouble getting the boulder on the pedestal, they win. While various members of Fang slump in defeat, Probst actually gives them some semi-positive words: "much different [than] the last challenge, guys -- you were right there." Gosh, thanks, Coach Probst! Shut up.
