Jen proudly announces in an interview that she has just been dancing for the L.A. Clippers -- for some reason, NBA dancers are a wildly overrepresented group among female reality-show contestants -- so obviously, she took the dancing. TK and Rachel also choose the Booty. Meanwhile, Hendekea emerges from the potty to learn that while she was in there, a couple of teams passed them. In a great visual, the teams are confronted with a sign with two arrows on it, marked "Pan" and "Booty." I can just imagine some poor unsuspecting person stumbling upon those signs and being like, "Well, if those are the choices, I don't need a pan that badly." Azaria and Hendekea choose the dancing as well.
10:07 AM. Lorena and Jason. So that's an hour and a half after everyone else. That implies that after everyone else was done with the camel-milking, Lorena and Julia stood around for another ninety minutes or so trying to get that task done. So they're starting out with a big, big deficit here, and they will really need to luck into at least a little bunching in order to make that up. As they run down the road with him on the right and her on the left, he says that he'll look to the left and she can look to the right. So, he's close, except it's the opposite of what he means. I don't think that's a good sign. He interviews that the race is about not giving up, so they're...not giving up! The episode would go a lot faster if they just made Jason a sign right now that reads, "We Do Not Give Up," and then they let him wave it around as needed.
Nick and Don pass "the Pinkies" in their cab. That would be Kynt and Vyxsin to you.
Jason tells Lorena not to "make any sudden movements" as he tries to stealthily sneak up on a chicken. I'm telling you, that's not necessary. I think you need to announce your presence to the chicken with authority. You are the boss; the chicken is the chicken. This is useful in many areas of life, now that I think about it. Maybe I'll get that t-shirt: "The Chicken Is The Chicken." Jason does get a chicken, though, and they can finally get going. He says in their taxi that he hopes everyone will make lots of mistakes.
Kynt and Vyxsin are passed by Ron and Chris.
Nate and Jen are ready to learn the dance. They select a dancer from a group dressed in giant furry costumes -- and by that, I mean "costumes that are furry," not "the African dancers are apparently furries," which would, of course, get the furries ganging up on me with the [bleep]s and [bleep]tards from earlier. Don't write to me, easily offended furries! Jen tries to teach Nate the basics as she understands them, but he doesn't understand her dance talk and wants her to speak to him in English. Not all this "one, two, three, four." They are the first to perform. They really just seem to do this same stompy move over and over again, and they add...nothing, that I can see. Azaria diplomatically explains that he and Hendekea watched this and figured that if what Nate and Jen were doing was the level of difficulty, they could probably swing it. Nate and Jen eventually just kind of stop dancing, and the judges look at them, and actual crickets chirp on the soundtrack. "No creativity," announces a judge. So they will not pass. They will wait ten minutes. Jen interviews that, for a dancer, this was kind of embarrassing. Not like being an L.A. Clippers dancer really relies primarily on inventiveness, but I see her point.
