Back at the Roadblock, Debbie is eating, and Patrick is now saying that if he has to eat the food, he'll eat it. They both eat. Patrick throws up on the ground. Gretchen says she feels bad for both of them, and then her penalty time and Ray and Deana's expires, so they leave for the pit stop. Ray and Deana are there first, so they finish as team number six. Gretchen and Meredith roll in as team number seven, as the sun is setting. Patrick finally finishes, while there's still a good amount of daylight left. They leave. The next thing we see is Debbie receiving her clue when it's quite dark, so I wouldn't at all doubt that she was bailed out of that task once Patrick and his mom were at the pit stop. She doesn't even indicate to the judge that she's done; he just comes over and gives her her clue. In fact, at the time she's given the clue, she literally still has food in her hand. Which she puts down when they tell her she's done. Bianca cheers for her as "the only girl [sic] to finish" and so forth. They get the clue and leave.
Patrick and Susan and Debbie and Bianca head for the pit stop in their cars. Up to the mat, up to the mat, it's...Susan and Patrick. Welcome, you are team number eight. And then Debbie and Bianca run up and are eliminated. Boo hoo. Live by the nauseous, die by the nauseous. Phil rubs it in that they came in first on the first leg. Yeah, baby. Bianca characterizes them as having made "a mistake that was detrimental." Of course, that's not a single mistake. Driving two hours without knowing where you're doing, seeing anything identifiable to tell you you're going the right way, that sort of thing -- that's not one mistake. That's screwing up a whole bunch of times in a row.
Of course, Debbie has to insist that it wasn't about them, it was a bigger issue about a women's team, blah blah, and that's fine, but I don't need women I don't care for representing my interests, so they can speak for themselves as far as I'm concerned. Aaaanyway, they love each other, so that's fine. What can you say about people who drove for that long without knowing where they were? That's a total lack of fundamentals, as they would say during the tournament. It's not like that says anything about women; that just says something about them.
Next week: Horses! Taxis! Rob being Rob! Deana being picked on! Oh, what fun.
