Meghan and Cheyne do show up, but they've shown up at the Venetian. They ask a parking supervisor outside what he thinks, and he thinks the Monte Carlo. Meghan? Not convinced.
Brian reminds Ericka in their cab, "Positive attitude. For all we know they went to the wrong hotel."
They sure did, and they're still there. After running around the lobby a bit, they finally get enough votes for the Monte Carlo to make up a majority, so they head back out. Even their cabbie is picking up on their frustration as they get stuck in traffic. "Come on, light!" he yells. Meghan and Cheyne are aware of the time they lost, but even after this foul-up at a time when they could least afford it, they are admirably calm. And in case you're keeping score, by this point every team has been in first, second, and last place. That's what I like to see in a finale.
Over at the Monte Carlo, Sam senses that Dan is getting flustered, so they switch jobs. Instead of Sam sorting the biggest chips out and Dan being in charge of organizing and counting the sorted chips while freaking out, Sam will organize and count the sorted chips while Dan pulls out the biggest ones and freaks out. I bet they really miss the poker chicks right about now.
Brian and Ericka get there, and are thrilled to see only one team there. They both start pulling $1,000 chips, and Ericka guesses correctly that Meghan and Cheyne went to the wrong place.
But they're here now, and are rather bummed to see they're the third team. So what happens now is that three teams are all counting chips together, with partners rushing each other to hurry. You'd think it wouldn't take as much time as it does that way, but it does. Sam and Dan's head start erodes as Sam tells his brother to calm down. And somehow, all three teams seem to end up getting done at the same time. Which means all three of them are waiting in suspense together for their dealers to verify their count. Again, this takes roughly forever. "That is correct," says Meghan and Cheyne's dealer. But the other two teams are told their totals are incorrect. While they try not to shit their pants, Meghan and Cheyne open the next clue: "Make your way to Suite 88 at the MGM Grand Hotel." Phil says that's the "high roller" suite. Inside, "Mr. Las Vegas" ["I am Mr. Las Vegas," a giant, terrifying, tuxedo-clad Muppet of Wayne Newton tells someone off-screen] will tell them where the finish line is. On their way out through the casino to the front door, Meghan and Cheyne confirm with a table of poker players that Mr. Las Vegas is in fact Wayne Newton. They rush out to the cab, completely wound up. "I will pay you hundreds if you go as fast as you can!" Cheyne tells their cabbie. Dude! It's across the street!
