Team Big Brother arrives at the yard store, and they're still searching when Kerri and Stacy slide in. They're still the next team to find a clue, though. Kerri and Stacy find their sixth-place clue with little difficulty and their cab cuts off some traffic as it pulls out to follow Team Big Brother's. Then the twins arrive, showing up just ahead of the last two teams. They find their clue in seventh place and Joey "Fitness" finds the eighth-place clue. Ralph and Vanessa get out of there in last place. "I love you. It's not over until we hit the mat," she says as they leave. And oftentimes not even then, if it's TAR19.
Art and JJ appear to be on the fifth or sixth tier of their pyramid, which means they're more than halfway done. Nary and Jamie are also making good progress, although one of their melons shifts ominously. A melon in their rack, I mean. I mean the melon in their stack of melons. Jeez. The other teams are also making progress, but the next thing you know the Border Patrol agents are done. The other teams pause to watch them finish and celebrate, as teams always seem to do for some reason with particularly challenging tasks. They get their clue, which is sending them to a place called Plaza de la Democracia. In their cab on the way there, Art cracks to JJ, "Stacking watermelons in Paraguay was on my bucket list. Gone." JJ congratulates himself and Art: "We dominated -- we got the right flight, we did the right challenge, we did it perfectly. We gotta get this next clue and we've got to get it done. We've gotta finish first today. There's no excuse for not finishing first." So if they do win the leg, that's just expected and not cause for a lot of bragging and gloating, right?
Back at the market, the locals are watching and filming with their cell phones when suddenly one entire side of Nary and Jamie's incomplete pyramid collapses. Bopper and Mark lose a whole corner. The locals laugh heartily, as a whole face slides off of Other Rachel and Dave's when they're only a few melons from being done. Up ahead, JJ says he loves being on the race. "I love it, I love it, I love it." So romantic, with Art's arm around him in the back of the cab. The other three teams behind them at the Detour are having a bad enough time, however, that it's time for a commercial break.
