1:21 AM. Joseph and Monica. They read their clue, and Joseph also adds the "and no pants," so either this is a running joke that was invented at the pit stop, or it was printed on the clue. If it's the latter? Awesome job, clue-printers. As they run, Joseph uses an exaggerated Charlie Chan accent to say, "You go to Thailand! Oieee!" Man, rarely has an episode opened with so much "boo"-worthy behavior in such a short time. Joseph explains that they knew the Yield was personal, so they "definitely want to drive [BJ and Tyler] into the ground." They elect not to leave any offerings on the car, unsurprisingly. Monica says that BJ and Tyler are playing "mind games" because they fear the greatness of the MoJo. They wind up just behind Eric and Jeremy, whom they wind up passing, which Eric and Jeremy mostly think is stupid, since all they're doing is going to the airport, where a thirty-second difference in the middle of the night is unlikely to spell the difference between success and failure.
1:22 AM. BJ and Tyler. They are enthused about the idea of flying to Bangkok. And they also read the "and no pants," so props to whomever wrote the clue. We are given a gratuitous shot of BJ's legs, which I didn't need. I believed the clue! Tyler adds that BJ has no shoes, of course, also. They go to the lost and found, and it appears that they perhaps get some shoes. BJ is very happy to see, when they get to their car, that Yolanda has coughed up her precious purple pants. Tyler interviews that losing all their stuff "powers [them] up." BJ: "Monica and Joseph didn't leave us anything because they're not giving people." And me without my hip boots. "I think MoJo has a date with...not being in the race anymore," BJ says. Wow, it hurts when you realize in the middle that you don't know what you're going to say, doesn't it? Happens to me all the time. That's why I'm better in print than at parties. "We've had that date before," Tyler says, "but it stood us up." Do you suppose they hear how lame that sounds? Or do you suppose they're able to live happily oblivious? I kind of hope it's the latter.
