Bopper and Mark rush into the cow barn and are checked in as team number six. They congratulate themselves on coming back and never giving up, even in the face of severe respiratory distress.
So now it's down to just the two female teams, racing to not be last to the mat. But the next pair to show up are Nary and Jamie, who are pretty happy to be team number seven. Then the barn door slides open one last time, and Kerri and Stacy show up in last place. "And I'm sorry to tell you that you've both been eliminated from the race," Phil says, wasting little time. Stacy tightly blames it on their navigating. In other words, you suck, Kerri. Stacy says she wanted to make their families happy, and shows a picture of her two kids that she brought along. With tears running down her face, she says their kids can learn a lot from their mom and Auntie Kerri by how hard they worked. Well, their mom, at least. "Who knew that two Southern, pink-lipstick-wearing girls like us would make it this far? We're still awesome." Stacy kisses and hugs her cousin, whom she probably never wants to see again.
