But there are still two teams behind the Frat Boys. "We're gonna be here all night," Ty tells Aja. Belles? Still on their way to the kiwi orchard. In Nick and Starr's car, he offers to take over the driving, and they switch places so she can fully concentrate on her crying in the back seat. And Aja and Ty give up on the kiwis and dash back to their car in the lengthening shadows. "I don't think I've ever felt this discouraged in my whole life," she says. You know, this episode has to be great publicity for Blokart Heaven. I can see the ads now: "Four out of seven teams on the Amazing Race got frustrated enough with their other option to try us as a second choice! Also, we're pretty sure Starr's arm didn't get broken."
And the Frat Boys are finally on their way to the Pit Stop. From the back, Dan tells Andrew, "You pulled a lot of tough duty today." Andrew impatiently lies, "I don't care...I'm not mad or anything." And in a solo interview, Andrew tells us that this was a turning point for him and Dan. "I don't plan on him running his mouth as much any more." Andrew says confidently. I think he's underestimating Dan.
Nick and Starr arrive at the mat and have a muted fifth-place celebration. Phil notices her sore arm, and she admits that it hurts but they're still there. And Aja and Ty arrive at the track and get to work assembling their Blokarts. Too bad they don't have time to enjoy the sunset that's happening.
The Frat Boys learn that they're team number six. Andrew falls flat on his back in astonishment while Dan whoops that he didn't think they even think they were in seventh place. Amazed that they're still in the race, Dan ecstatically hugs Phil's dad. "I love you, man! You're my dad too!" Then Dan realizes something kind of sad: "That's our best finish!" Not that he's sad about it. I mean, it is their best finish if you count from the front, but if you count from the back, they're holding pretty steady. I guess if they can continue to finish third-from-last consistently, they'll eventually be demi-millionaires. But I'm not too worried about that happening.
The sky is growing dark as the Belles finally climb into their kiwi bin. But Aja and Ty have suffered a setback: "The knot in your sheet rope is in an incorrect position," a Blokart guide informs them, sounding like an instructor at the yacht club. The editors cut back and forth between the two remaining teams, as their frustration grows as quickly as the darkness. They seem to finish their tasks at about the same time, when it's fully dark outside. They read their clues, jump into their cars, and start driving through the night. Aja says, "I'm not going to reflect on how we could possibly be the last team so I'm going to think about things that are positive." A less philosophical mood prevails in the Belles' car: "Hurry hurry hurry hurry!"
