On the ferry to the island, Nick is still bitching, and Vicki's asking him to "take that out of your head." She could mean either the negativity, or the brain implant that aliens put there to test the limits of human assholery. "I wish we would have never came here," Nick says. Well, that makes several million of us.
They arrive at the island before the other ferry reaches Kowloon, but not by much. Nat and Kat are the first team to get a cab, followed by Jill and Thomas, then Team QVC, as Brook mistakenly asks the driver for "Majestic Chinese Restaurant." Nick and Vicki get their Majesty clue in last place. Nat and Kat are the first to actually reach said restaurant, which helpfully has signage in English as well as Mandarin. Inside is a boisterous scene, with locals singing karaoke on a low but huge stage. A chef stationed at the clue box yells over the racket, "Welcome to our restaurant!" Nat and Kat open the clue for a Road Block and read, "Who's feeling peckish?" Nick is! Oh, sorry, I thought they said "prickish."
Phil starts talking about Hong Kong's famous buffets, which are barely more famous than all the fake food made in Hong Kong to be shown in restaurant display windows. Now, one racer will have to use chopsticks to "peck" though the giant buffet here at Majesty, looking for fake food items. Which will be hard, because there are only five of them among the thousands of real morsels spread on the table. And if they pick up something that turns out to be genuine, they have to eat it. They'll get their next clue after finding a fake. Nat will be taking this one. She makes her way across the big, loud room to hover over the buffet. She picks up something in an oyster shell, but it's real, so she has to eat it. Good thing it's tasty. And good thing they decided not to give this one to the vegetarian on the team.
Jill and Thomas arrive next, and Thomas is feeling peckish. He joins Nat at the buffet, and soon finds himself having to eat one of the same things Nat already ate, which he describes as "nasty." No accounting for taste, which is why he and Nick have girlfriends. In comes Brook, screaming like the loon she is as she runs up to the clue box. Claire offers to do it, assuming from the performers up on the stage that this will be karaoke. Yeah, that would be a no. See, Claire, how the singing is being done not by the people you've been racing with for the last three weeks but by people you've never seen before? That might have been a clue. Brook goes over and joins Kat and Jill at the waiting area at the end of the karaoke stage, and immediately begins dancing, getting way too much encouragement from the crowd.
