1:29 PM. Charla and Mirna. Mirna explains that all their energy and enthusiasm was "all for a reason." Presumably, a reason other than driving people bazoo, but I take her point. Mirna looks extra-hot-rollered today; I guess she's mustering all her weapons. I will say, I've rarely seen a woman keep her appearance from deteriorating over the course of the race as effectively as Mirna has. Sometimes, she even appears to me like she's wearing false eyelashes, even though I know she isn't. Props to you, lady, for looking just as poofed today as you did on Day One. Charla, meanwhile, has decided to run the last leg in her skirted swimsuit. And pants. That's going to get you fugged something fierce, sweetheart.
Eric and Pink get to the airport and ask about flights to Honolulu. They're told that there are really only two options. There's Northwest, leaving at 3:50 PM, which is the flight the BQs are on -- but it's sold out. There's another Northwest flight, then, that leaves at 4:20 PM. Both the flights will connect in Tokyo to the same flight on to Honolulu with the 7:40 AM arrival. Charla and Mirna get to the airport and get the same information. Mirna wants to know how many people have already bought tickets, and the guy tells her that everybody did. Because this guy looks, talks, and frankly dresses like he just came from a barbecue in Akron, they don't speak to him in silly accents, which is a relief to my ears.
The BQs leave on the first flight to Tokyo. Eric and Pink and Charla and Mirna take the second.
