Trey & Lexi come running in, whether she finished the Roadblock or not, as Phil says ,"Texas is in the house." Hard to miss that, what with Trey having been wearing his Lone Star shorts again today. They hug the winners and runners-up and Phil doctor-voices that they should be proud of officially being the third team to arrive. Lexi weepily talks about how amazing it was and getting to spend a solid month with Trey. Who in turn interviews that the race made their relationship stronger. "I think we are definitely ready for that next step. It's just a matter of when Trey's ready for that next step," she says, like he's going to propose on camera or something. I think the best advice I can give Lexi is to just keep nagging.
So then everyone gathers on the big mat for hugs, and Monster Truck Rob says, "The Beekman Boys changed my life dramatically, opened my eyes to see that, hey look, it's not for me to judge anybody on their lifestyle or who they are or what they do." Josh finishes up with more comments about how this proves to the underdogs of the world, "It doesn't matter how bad things are going at the moment." "[You] just can't quit," Brent says. "Nice guys do finish first sometimes," Josh concludes. And in this case, so did his partner.
