Up in the shop, the dude examines the contents of Jaymes's basket and says, "C'est ne pas bon," or "it is not good," per the subtitles and what little I recall of my junior high French. Jaymes looks at the samples again, memorizing the names as though they're going to help him amid the unlabeled crops down below, and heads back, meeting Lexi on the way. Lexi also tells Trey that it was really hard, and she's not sure she did it right. But after reaching the shop and comparing her collection to the samples, she says, "Holy sh-mokes, I think I did it right. No freaking way." Sure enough, the champignonniste tells her, "Yes," in English even, and gives her a clue. On her way out to meet Trey, she says it was the most rewarding thing she's ever done, which is either an imprecise choice of words or so very sad. She and Trey are still in first place as they read the clue outside telling them to drive to the Pit Stop, which the clue says is the "Castle of the Ladies," although Phil says it's called Chateau de Chenonceau. It's another one of these castles we've been seeing during the b-roll all leg, this one built across a river. Now that's just showing off. "And the last team to check in here will be eliminated," Phil says, standing in front of the mat on the riverbank. Penultimate Leg Phil does not fuck around. Team Austin runs back to their cab, pausing to get directions from some locals, who send them two kilometers to Vallagon. One of them touches Lexi's hair for some reason, I guess to mime the concept of "lady." I guess there are worse parts he could have touched. Welcome to France, Lexi!
Back down there in the tunnels, Jaymes is confident in only two of his mushroom varieties, but when he gets to the shop, the guy tells him, "Perfect," so the Chippendales have their clue in second place. After getting back to their car, James uses the foot switch to open the back so they can put their backpacks inside. "Make sure you show that to your mom when we win this thing," Jaymes says. Oh, I'm sure she's seen it by now. She's had plenty of opportunities.
