At any rate, Lake and Michelle pick the Climb, as do Dani and Danielle, but Joni and Lisa take the sugar. As the teams drive off in their Beetles, Lisa complains to Joni that the car sucks, and that she can only drive it by keeping the clutch in all the time. She pressures Joni to tell her where to go, because she's only in charge of the driving. She grinds the gears as she frets that they had a deal that she would drive and Joni would navigate, and she can't do both. This is not going well for them. Killer Fatigue should not be hitting in the second leg.
Commercials. I'm not sure that Failure To Launch is really what I'm looking for in a date movie. I could list the reasons, but that would add a page and a half to the recap. Suffice it to say that they start with my inability to identify with Sarah Jessica Parker, ever, to the point where usually, I want whatever character she's playing to wind up unhappy.
When we return, Lisa and Joni are still struggling to figure out where they're going. They stop and ask a guy for directions, and it seems like he's helpful.
BJ and Tyler are hunting for the pit stop, as are MoJo and Eric and Jeremy. In fact, Eric and Jeremy and Danielle and Dani pass each other going in opposite directions. "I hope our girls do good," Jeremy says. "I hope they don't get eliminated," Eric contributes. "Then what are we going to do?" Jeremy continues. "Hook up with hippies?" I tell you, women drop dead from the force of their orgasms. I am not joking. These guys are a health hazard. They are a danger to the community. Get the orange cones, get the yellow police tape, and stop them before any more women are injured. This is a public health crisis.
The Choad family is reunited and finds a guy to follow to the pit stop. MoJo is snagging some directions as well.
Elsewhere, Dave and Lori have arrived at the plantation to do the Press It thing. Hilariously, the show keeps cutting to these incredibly severe-looking people in white coats and goggles who are apparently in charge of distilling ethanol, but who look like the undead. I have no idea why somebody decided to make the sugar scientists look menacing. Dave and Lori start grabbing sugar cane stalks, noting that they have to squeeze the juice out of fifteen stalks. They start feeding the first stalk through the crusher, which is a little bit like a manual pasta machine that you operate with a crank. They finish the first stalk and go to the next.
