Across town at the Bird's Nest, Tammy and Victor are already de-cabbing. Clearly no suspense as to who was gong to win this leg. Standing next to a local in a plain white parka (the Amazing Costumers are coasting too now? Really?), Phil points out their approach, and after three episodes set in China, Tammy and Victor finally reach a mat first. The greeter welcomes them to Beijing, and Phil tells them they're team number one. He congratulates them on being one of the final three teams, and tells them they've won a trip for two to the Galapagos islands. Which includes snorkeling, so when Phil says, "This is a vacation you'll never forget," it's easy to believe. They interview about how happy they are to be in the final three, and not underestimating anyone else. "I'm going in counting on being number one," Victor says.
Now Jaime and Cara have met up with Jen and Kisha. One wonders what the locals think of all these garishly made-up Americans wandering around with backpacks over their silk robes. Jaime complains some more, and Jen says they're going to return to the Opera House. Team Go Team wishes them luck and Jaime asks if they should do the same. Cara says they'll just get pointed back there, "And we're going to be annoyed." Well, we certainly wouldn't want anything to happen that might annoy Jaime, especially when such things are so easily avoidable. They take a moment to wonder where Margie and Luke went. "They went down that street and they never came back," Cara says. Well, ladies, maybe there's something to that. You think?
Margie orders up her street food. "Extra crispy, please," she says. She eats standing at the counter, while Luke gets to work opening one of the four bottles of water that are apparently provided. Sure, now he wants to make sure she has water.
Jen finds the entrance to the U-Turn, "Right. Where. We were." The U-Turn does not thrill them, and they even call the note "so annoying." I suppose they already knew they could outrun Team Family Law after doing it in Guilin. Off to the restaurant they go. They set their gnome down in its waiting seat and start taking orders. Obviously they have to do it phonetically. And with lots of requests for people to repeat themselves. Have the people been sitting in this restaurant the whole time? I hope they at least got something to eat.
