The two teams heading to the Fast Forward each discuss what it means, "Going for this Fast Forward will make or break our race," Sarah says. She's half right. And even though they're in the lead, Nick remarks to Starr, "We're probably still gonna have to do whatever it is faster than them." They'd better hope it's not a task that requires taking wrong turns or learning a new language or saying "babe," then.
Andrew finds his egg, and starts making his way back through the teeming poultry, asking them to hurry up and get out of his way. Like they're not going to be, "Oh, are we slowing you down, human who wants to get out of here so you can win half a million bucks to spend at Chik-fil-A? Also, we only understand Russian. Bock-ski."
Toni and Dallas have found the crane trucks. I'm sorry to see that they don't have to drive it themselves, but have a driver waiting for them. Dallas remarks that the next clue stop will be first-come, first served, since there are only two Mongol warriors there. Wow, it must be really hard to put together a horde these days.
Tina has found her own golden egg, so now it's an awkward, slow-motion, chicken-kickin' race between her and Andrew to get back first. It's the Frat Boys who get out in the lead. Hey, they need these leads once in a while. Otherwise, what would they have to blow?
Nick and Starr's cab reaches the restaurant and they run inside at full tilt, with Terence and Sarah haring along behind them. They breathlessly rush in, totally spoiling the atmosphere created by the folk music band and the belly dancers, and plop down at a table across from some locals. They're given special menus that describe the Fast Forward, and Starr interviews that she refused to even look at the ingredients on the bottom of the menu. Plates are delivered to her and Nick, containing what look like sheep-ass chunks in a brown grease sauce. I'm glad to see that it's not the Fear Factor-type eating challenges of days past; it's a generous but reasonable portion, and it doesn't look like something that was invented purely to gross us out (although I'm not saying it doesn't). Plus it's already in small pieces, which should help. When Terence and Sarah get theirs, Terence says, "Oh, no, frickin' meat." He interviews, "I'm a vegetarian. I haven't had meat for fifteen or sixteen years." Amid shots of locals gleefully eating even grosser stuff, like scraps of cow that they pull right off the skull, Terence flatly tells Sarah, "I can't eat it, babe." She just looks at him like, "You have got to be shitting me." I don't know how much the Fast Forward clue told them, but if it said it was a food challenge, or even at a restaurant, what did he expect? "You are going to have to eat so much rice"? After the ads, Terence goes on to say that everything in the restaurant made him sick, but he had to go for it to have a chance a the million. So let's watch Terence display his determination and perseverance.
