Elsewhere, Kris and Jon are on the bike, "just cruising in Stockholm." Hayden and Aaron are still behind, and she's still haranguing, but they're pedaling pretty well now. In fact, they come up beside Kris and Jon. Pedal, pedal, pedal. And then they pass Kris and Jon, and they immediately get a caption that says, "Currently in 1st Place," which I thought was pretty cute. I love the semi-snarky captioning. The teams remain very close, though, as they reach the field of hay bales and the clue box. Oh, but first? The Yield. Phil explains it, blah blah blah, you can make somebody stop and wait until the days of our lives pass, or what have you. There are only three Yields on the race this time, and you can only use it once and so forth. "They have to decide when it's most advantageous to use it." Feh. Hayden and Aaron and Kris and Jon both choose not to Yield anyone, and then they read the Roadblock clue, which says, "Who's got hay fever?" As Phil explains, the lucky winner of this Roadblock will have to unwrap and unroll hay bales until they find a clue that's rolled up in one. There are 270 hay bales and only 20 clues. You just have to keep unrolling bales until you find a clue.
Aaron and Jon both take the Roadblock. "Are we moving hay bales like strong man competeeshun?" Aaron asks in his Governor-of-Californian accent. Funny! Kris and Hayden root for their respective boys. When Jon finishes unrolling the bale and finds nothing, Kris asks him, "Do you have to roll another one, babe?" Already panting, he says, "Looks like it." Those thing weigh a lot, I think. Lena and Kristy said on TV that they weighed 200 pounds, so...yeesh. That will make you tired. For some reason, my unit of weight for large objects I have to move is 25-pound bags of dog food, and the idea of trying to roll eight of those rolled up is no fun, especially if it was poking me with hay bits the entire time.
