"Accounting," Rob says as he walks with another cup of tea. "This way!" a guy calls out, stepping forward. "Thank you!" Rob calls out. "You're welcome!" the guy calls back. "You speak English?" Rob says as he passes. "Come with me, come with me." The guy falls in beside him. At the next room they hit, they find a guy on their list. "Yes!" Rob says. "Cup of tea, for him." Heh. They thank the guy and move on. Elsewhere, Ron and Kelly finish their first delivery. Uchenna and Joyce, meanwhile, are just arriving at the tea shop and picking up their cart. Lynn and Alex are close behind, and soon both of these teams are on their way to the office to bother people who are trying to work.
As Gretchen and Meredith make their way through the streets, a woman comes up to Gretchen and asks for her autograph. It's a fairly simple equation, I suspect: Cameras + American = Famous! They give an autograph, and their guy explains, "It's because we're happy to see you." Heh. They arrive at the gas station at last, still with their Fern. And I believe as a result of the teams coming through earlier and there being a big lag between the last group and this team, there is a huge crowd gathered, waiting for them to arrive. I suspect there was some sort of a "there's one team left to arrive; hang around and wait for them" vibe that the crowd was aware of, which is why there's such excitement. Or else, as multiple EEFPs suggested, they really did think Meredith was Larry David. At any rate, the crowd cheers effusively, and Meredith and Gretchen soak it up, waving and greeting the giant throng. They open the Detour clue, and noting that 175 pounds is a lot of coal, they go with the Liquid. Yeah, probably. I think "old people shoveling coal" is not a recipe for warm-hearted television. As she walks, Gretchen notes all the people waiting to see her. Another guy asks Meredith for an autograph, and Meredith trades it for help finding a rickshaw. Heh. That's a player.
Rob and Amber find a bunch of people who aren't on their list, but then they find the third who is. Ron and Kelly deliver successfully. Uchenna and Joyce get to the office and start asking around what department they're in. They manage to track down their first person without, it seems, too much difficulty. Lynn and Alex arrive, and they pour the tea, but inside, they're not sure how to find what they're looking for. They seem to have no touch with the locals at all, or else they wind up in the wrong place, because no one seems to have any idea where any of the people on the list can be found.
Commercials. I still hate that Dove ad, just by association.
