Colin and Christie's flight lands in Paris. And what do the frontrunners do while they're waiting for their flight to Cairo? They run around looking for a better flight to Cairo. And for their hustle, they are rewarded with a flight that lands in Cairo fully twelve hours before the one they were scheduled to take. Zoiks. And they don't have much time to make the new flight, either, so it looks like they cut their layover from about twelve hours to about nothing. Very impressive. Moreover, it's a quality advantage, because it will put them into Cairo at 2:35 in the morning rather than 2:25 in the afternoon, which is genuinely far better, since it gives you the entire day to work rather than only the last few hours of it, and even if you can't get started until morning, you're still way ahead of the game. They look very happy with themselves, as they should, getting on their flight from Paris to Cairo.
Meanwhile, in Frankfurt, the flight from St. Petersburg lands with most of the teams on it. A social hour ensues in the Frankfurt airport, in which Brandon and Nicole, Chip and Kim, and Lance and Marshall sit around chatting, because fortunately, they have nothing pressing to do. Mirna and Charla, however, go in search of an earlier flight to Cairo, because while they are racing annoyingly at times, they are at least racing. They're not able to gain an advantage of the size of Colin and Christie's, but they do get a flight that's better by about fifty minutes. They resolve not to let anybody else find out that they're doing anything different. There seems to be little risk of anybody else finding out, since the rest of the teams are apparently lolling about like it's spring break in Ft. Lauderdale, only colder.
Charla and Mirna are hanging with the other teams, interestingly, apparently to throw them off the scent. (Clever.) Mirna whispers that they can't take off and go to their new gate until everybody is asleep. And indeed, once the other three teams are sleeping (and Kim has rolled her hair, with which you know Mirna can sympathize), Mirna and Charla sneak off (accompanied by sneaky-sneak music) to get their other flight.
