Speaking of "finally," TK gets to the part of the gold pit where all the gold is. Even as they happily find some gold, they fret about the fact that the dancing people are probably all finished.
Shana and Jennifer's dance. Man, this is embarrassing. It involves crawling on the ground. And very little of the dance they're supposed to be doing. And gyrating pelvises. And stripper-pole moves. They get their clue, so apparently this dance met the requirements, which is so gross, because...it just is. I'm insulted as a woman, as an American, and as a very bad dancer.
So the way things stand now, both TK and Rachel and Shana and Jennifer are approaching the U-Turn box. As it turns out, Shana and Rachel are ahead, and they see TK and Rachel behind them. But, probably not figuring that TK and Rachel could have gone from almost half an hour ahead of them to behind them in such a short time, they figure that the couple behind them is Jason and Lorena. So this makes them believe, quite reasonably, that they're barely staying out of last place. (When, of course, Jason and Lorena are still way, way behind.) Jennifer doesn't want to use the U-Turn, but Shana assures her that (1) it's a game; (2) the other team will understand; and (3) the other team would, if necessary, do the same. It's a surprisingly level-headed response for a woman who...well, you know. TK can see as he approaches that they're U-Turning someone, and he just hopes it's not him.
Back from commercials, Shana and Jennifer announce that they're U-Turning Jason and Lorena. TK still wants it not to be him. As the ladies leave the U-Turn, they do take a moment to note, "That's a really good picture of us!" You know, the one that's stuck on the U-Turn sign under "Courtesy Of." I love that they have the time to notice this; it's like, "Whee! Remember how pretty we are?" Shana interviews that they thought it was Jason and Lorena right behind them, so that's what they thought they were doing, was staying out of last place. Really, this is what they should do no matter who they think is behind them. They're far enough back that this is likely to be the better of the two chances they'll have to use it, so they might as well, and the only right team to U-Turn is the team in last place. TK and Rachel get to the clue box and are happy that it's not them U-Turned. TK interviews that this was a bad strategic move for Shana and Jennifer, because now there's "a target" on them. Okay, here's the thing: if anybody else has any sense, they're going to use any future U-Turn or Yield or whatever in whatever manner makes the most strategic sense for them, and not as a way to get revenge on Shana and Jennifer. It's just...it wouldn't be logical for anyone to "target" Shana and Jennifer. They've done the only "bad" thing they can do to anyone, in all likelihood, so there's no point in going after them except for revenge, and why would anyone do that? It just doesn't make sense.
