MoJo heads for the highway. On the highway, BJ and Tyler and Eric and Jeremy are just in sync. None of them really know where they're going, so Eric and Jeremy flag down an ambulance, which gives them directions. As they get those directions, BJ tells Tyler to get out and ask, too. Tyler responds by getting out and asking Eric and Jeremy, rather than asking the guys they asked. That is...really goofy. And the part where Tyler's like, "Wait for us"? Since when is there "wait for us" in racing? BJ hassles Tyler about why he asked the guys instead of the locals.
Just then, here comes -- seriously -- MoJo. MoJo squeezes in behind BJ and Tyler, who are behind Eric and Jeremy. Eric and Jeremy, for their part, are smart enough not to be happy that it's MoJo behind BJ and Tyler -- they were all counting on somebody being way behind from that Yield who would protect them from being in last place. Incidentally, you can do the math for yourself, but the reason Eric and Jeremy are unhappy about MoJo being back there is the same reason you don't Yield a team that isn't in last place -- the idea is always to put somebody as far behind you as possible. Joseph flips off BJ and Tyler, which is nicely obscured by pixels, but which BJ and Tyler apparently do not miss.
Up ahead, Eric and Jeremy lead the group onto the Stuart Highway. Al three teams are still in a clump. Everyone notes that this could mean that Ray and Yolanda are in front of all of them, meaning that whoever loses in this little scrum will be last. And now, they're all approaching the Lake Bennett resort. "It's going to be a mad footrace to the finish," says Joseph. And then Eric says -- nota bene -- "Got your shoes on?" And Jeremy answers in the affirmative. "I don't know if I can beat the hippies, Joseph," Monica frets. "Yes, you can," he assures her.
Phil is at the mat. Whip Guy is at the mat. Whip Guy whips, and it still looks like Phil is not thrilled. The teams park and jump out of their cars. As they head away from the cars, BJ crosses in front of Monica, and he has no shoes on. They dash toward the mat, Eric and Jeremy in front, then Tyler and BJ, and then Joseph, and then Monica bringing up the rear. By the time they come around the corner, Eric and Jeremy have the first spot locked up, and it's between BJ and Tyler and MoJo for last place. Basically, Joseph and Tyler are running together, so it's now between BJ and Monica. Monica is way behind at this point. BJ decides to get cute (unsurprising), and instead of just running to the mat, he pauses to consider whether to cut across the rocks rather than run to the walkway like everyone else. And then he does, in fact, try to run across the rocks rather than follow the beaten path. His "shortcut," like so many, gives Monica time to pass him, and she ultimately beats him by about two steps, owing entirely to his decision to outsmart the situation and show off how clever he is. Had he just followed the damn group onto the walkway, he'd have beaten her easily. That's got to feel silly.
