12:54 PM. Peter and Sarah. There's something wonky about this pit stop, because they certainly did not arrive at 12:54 AM -- they arrived in the middle of the day. But anyway, wearing their matching Ass-Kicking Intimidation Goggles, Peter and Sarah open their clue and find that they have been given a little Nokia phone of that's playing video of Phil. It's very strange, because they don't name Nokia or the particular phone, so I'm suspicious that perhaps Nokia's check bounced. In the video, Phil instructs them to go to Kuwait City and "find the following location." There is a shot of the Kuwait Towers. A clue! A clue! That they have to figure out! That doesn't just say "Go here, dummy!" Doesn't that just bring back memories of... well, okay, pretty much the first season only, but... still! Phil Phils in that the first thing the teams will have to do is buy airline tickets to Kuwait, which is a 2400-mile trip. When they get there, they'll hop in a marked SUV and go. As Peter and Sarah leave the mat, he assures us that he's "confident that [they're] going to continue to do well." He says that on their worst day, they're better than some of these teams. It would be great if they could proceed to have their worst day and see whether they really are better. I would applaud that, as a development. Peter also says that he's trying not to push Sarah too much, given her busted knee. Sarah says that in the previous leg, she was frustrated about not being able to keep up, and she was very aware of how hard he was pushing. And she also tells us with her mind that she hates him, but she's not going to go into that right now, so you have to read it on her face. They get a cab. The cab driver's mind is like, "Word, sister."
1:06 PM. Dustin and Kandice. They seem a little more excited about the Nokia phone than is really called for. That level of joy is really only available from a phone if it happens to be on vibrate. As the leave the mat, Dustin (I think) interviews that when you do well, other teams are always jealous. Man, I hate when that happens to me. After surplus awesomeness, I would say the jealousy of others is the malady that most plagues reality-show contestants. Kandice adds that people don't like being beaten by "a couple of blonde girls." Wait -- I forgot being underestimated based on how good-looking you are! Man. How could I forget that one? That's actually first. And really, all of this is such a bummer, because I'm liking the BQs less and less, and I was enjoying giving myself credit for not always hating the teams of blonde girls, even when they're specifically referred to as "Beauty Queens." They get a taxi and tell the guy they need to get themselves to a travel agency.
