3:38 AM. As Brian and Greg rip open their clue, Brian says, "All righty, I do believe today will be a doozy." I love them. LOVE them. I have never had any problems with anyone who can use the word "doozy" and mean it. They tend to be dorky squares, and I love dorky squares. Brian and Greg read the clue and get all pumped about going to South Africa, not that they're not generally sort of pumped individuals. They point out in a voice-over that they're the only team remaining in the race that isn't a Loooove Team. "So, we're hopefully going to see some self-destruct buttons going off in these relationships," Brian offers. And as Sars told you last week, he? Is a fox. It's Brian, though, not Greg. Greg's the kind of doughy one who's probably equally awesome, but slightly less hot. I apologize for the trouble that remark will cause at family gatherings, where I frankly think this is a family that will buy Greg a shirt that says "DOUGHY" on the back or something. ["I wouldn't kick him out of bed, either. They're both rad." -- Sars] They take off in their cab.
Rob and Amber arrive at the airport and go inside. Rob asks a nice lady about a flight to South Africa, and he learns that Varig has the earliest flight, and it will connect through Sao Paolo. (Which I am careful to spell correctly, as I spelled it incorrectly before, and received copious emails from the Sao Paolo Spelling-Related Defense Fund, understandably enough.) They get tickets to Johannesburg, leaving at 10:55 AM and arriving in Johannesburg the next day at 6:55 AM. And their ticket lady lets them carry their bags on. Meaningful And Moderately Ominous Soundtrack: "Ding!"
Brian and Greg stroll into the airport. They get tickets on the same flight. "We're golden," they say.
5:49 AM. Uchenna and Joyce. They are mighty happy about heading for Johannesburg. Uchenna says that they "have a plan to have more faith in [their] instincts." They leave in their taxi, and she's literally jumping up and down over how excited she is. I begin to suspect that they are here just so I can be really sad at their eventual Philimination, because they're that cute.
6:05 AM. Ron and Kelly. They rip the clue and get in a cab. They debate in their "Oh, why do I have to have an opinion? I had an opinion last time" kind of way whether to go to a travel agency, but ultimately, they decide to just head for the airport. Kelly reveals that this is the longest time they've ever spent together, so apparently, they are long-distance also. Or else it means that they just met, which -- hey, I know somebody who's advanced that theory in the past.
