All the teams are painting each other up, Ernie seeming to enjoy watching the snowboarders at it a bit too much. Cathi says while Bill paints her, "Our kids are just gonna die when they see us in this little clothing. I'm gonna die, so you know, it's gonna be a family death." Heh. Ernie feels pretty good about having his tan on. Now that everyone's properly pigmented, it's time to start learning the poses. It's about as embarrassing as you might imagine. "My business is hanging out," Cindy says while in a wide-legged crouch. Andy's snowboarding injuries are getting in the way of some of the poses for him, making it difficult to throw his shoulders back like he's supposed to. Amani just wants to get it right the first time so she doesn't have to do it again. Marcus confesses to being a little clumsy, but Amani's happy to help coach him, Full Monty-style.
Ernie and Cindy are the first to go out onstage to give it a try. With their instructor behind them on the stage, they go through the poses while a small audience sits behind three glowering musclemen in tank tops who sit at a table looking unimpressed. They reveal their scores: 3, 2, and 4, a total of 9. Not good enough to get a clue. The judges give them some notes for the next time, most of which are regarding Ernie's "detail." "So frustrating," Cindy interviews, while Ernie nods in thoughtful agreement. Andy and Tommy go next, and Tommy says it's not something he would ever do. They look it, too. Their scores are a pathetic 1, 2, and 1. They also get some feedback from the judges, to work on the order of the poses and try to smile. The other three teams are still prepping. Amani decides Marcus is ready, even though he isn't feeling it yet. But as soon as he comes onstage, he says it felt like entering an arena. A nearly empty one, but he seems to be able to use just about anything as NFL methadone. They go through the poses and Marcus interviews that he got into it. Even Amani seems to be enjoying herself. Their scores: 4, 4, and 4, so they have enough points to get the next clue.
