Brandon and Nicole head for the pit stop, in front of Chip and Kim due to the stop Chip made to help the Twinkies. Brandon and Nicole, you are team number three. Chip and Kim walk up next, as he talks to her about how cool it is that "a South Central L.A. boy and a Compton girl makes it all the way through Russia, and the Sphinx...this is unbelievable." They land on the mat, and are team number four. Chip interviews that he was like, "Hmm, fourth." He's aware that helping the Twinkies let Brandon and Nicole get ahead of them. He doesn't care, though. "I'm not going to stop being me," he says.
Linda and Karen rip open their Detour clue and resign themselves to rock-hauling.
Marshall and Lance are still working on the rocks, while wondering where the last two teams are. The Twinkies show up, all snotty and "Having fun?" about it. Lance: "Yeah, wait till the fun starts." Heh. Yeah, I'll give him that one. "Your fun hasn't started yet," Marshall adds. The Twinkies start to try to pull the rocks, and their first comment is that they "hate this." Well, sure. And also, "This is stupid." Yeah. Pretty stupid. It's only how they built the Pyramids, ass. Marshall and Lance finish the pulling. They get applause and their pit stop clue.
Linda and Karen show up for rock-hauling. Marshall and Lance approach the Sphinx. The Twinkies finish the rocks. Marshall and Lance check in as number five.
Tense footage. The moms and Twinkies appear to be fairly close -- close enough to see each other -- walking to the pit stop. Linda and Karen, running! Twinkies, running!
Sigh. You know where this is going, right? Sure you do. As usual, the Twinkies manage to come in just before last place. They can thank Chip. Do you think they will? Yeah, me neither.
Linda and Karen come up to the mat. They're told they're last. But, it's non-elimination, so they're not eliminated. But, there's a catch. They're being stripped of all their money, and they get none for the next leg. So...they're broke. Phil tells them they're "hanging on by a thread." He wishes them luck, which isn't quite a hearty "screw you," but it's close. Linda voices over that being broke in Egypt, not exactly a center of wealth among the masses, won't be easy. But guess what? They won't give up. Yeah, I'm not surprised.
Next week: Begging for dollars. Shirtless Brandon. Happy Nicole. A smackdown between Colin and Christie and Charla and Mirna over a taxi.
