Uchenna and Joyce complete the task, and they stop to grab their clue. They read it and head for the pit stop. "I don't see any teams close," Joyce says.
Here come Meredith and Gretchen to the Roadblock area. They grab their post. As they get up to the first log, she starts to kibitz about pushing it with the car, and he asks for some "slack." Hee. Yeah, back off, lady! Not really. Meredith rather kicks ass as he gets out of the car and ropes up the first log.
Lynn and Alex spot a little running pig-like thing (don't email me!) along the road. "God, that's like a -- I don't even know!" Lynn says excitedly. Again, I am so conflicted. I want to like him. Stop being a jerk so I can like you, you jerk! "Watch out for that stick," Lynn says cheerily, and then...*bonk*. They have a flat tire. They get out and survey the damage. "Wow," Lynn says somewhat dryly. "This is a rough day." Heh.
Brian and Greg are hoping that the Roadblock will be something "manly." Brian babbles about how the Detour was "sissy," with both options being the sort of thing that "little farmer ladies" do. Yeah. Little farmer ladies in Botswana are nowhere near as tough as you, dude. You're getting a pass this time, but don't do that.
Rob notes that the road to the pit stop is a little "scary." They see a giraffe along the road, and Rob thinks it has a monkey on its back (and not in the Matthew Perry/Billy Joel/Robert Downey, Jr. kind of way) until he notes that that's actually the giraffe's own tail. Oh, how the eye does fool you. They laugh delightedly, though, which is pretty cool. He may have a shitty attitude toward other people -- in fact, I'd say he often does -- but they're smart enough to have a good time. "I think we've seen every animal in Africa today," he giggles, and she agrees.
