But where's Nick and Vicki's Speed Bump? I have to admit, I completely forgot about it until after I submitted the recaplet for this episode, and it's not like the show went out of its way to bring it to our attention. But according to Reality Blurred, rumor has it that Nick and Vicki were victims of a judging error at the Classical Music Detour in the last leg (i.e., they made a correct guess and were told it was wrong), so they made it a non-elimination leg on the fly and wiped the slate clean at the beginning of this leg by keeping the circus gate closed until noon or whatever. And now that I think about it, I don't remember Phil specifically saying they would have a Speed Bump this leg after all. It would be nice if we didn't have to do our own research to find that out, especially since I prefer to stick with what's onscreen. But the Speed Bump is conspicuously not onscreen, which I initially thought was because all of the other stuff that happens this leg is so interesting that they edited it out. And by "interesting," I mean "interesting to the editors." I was glad to learn that it was just because somebody fucked up.
