Previously on Damn: Mirna and Charla escaped elimination.
Credits. I kind of dig it that Team Guido comes right after the galloping horses. I can't really explain why that is, but I feel fairly strongly about it.
Commercials. Okay, PC and Mac. That'll do.
Clouds and guitars inform us that we are still in South America, on our roving tour of same, and specifically, we are in Chile. Phil says that amongst the country's "snow-capped volcanoes," we find Playa Petrohue, a black volcanic beach that served as the third, Kentucky-booting pit stop. Thanks, Playa Petrohue! But... Mirna and Charla are still here, so what have you done for me lately? The teams have all enjoyed their "mandatory rest period," and now Phil wonders whether Rob and Amber will remain in first place indefinitely after three straight victories, because that does seem to be the dominant question of the moment. Much to the dismay of...the internet.
6:11 AM. Rob and Amber. The clue they rip tells them to fly to Punta Arenas, Chile, where they'll take a taxi 15 miles to a shipwreck where their next clue will be located. It sounds like they have $302 for the leg, but it's very hard to tell, because Rob talks like he has someone else's teeth in his mouth. He interviews that he doesn't mean to be "arrogant or cocky" when he says he knows they're the best team. It just seems that way, of course, because of how he says it all the time, and means it, and occasionally raises the roof inside his head. Amber says they have great communication skills, and just might be "peaking." He laughs. "We're not peaking. I'm not even close to my prime." And he looks at her to see if that sounded too stupid, and it totally did, so she laughs and puts her head on his shoulder, because if you love someone, you put your head on his shoulder when he says something stupid.
6:26 AM. Uchenna and Joyce. Joyce talks about how Rob and Amber beat them frequently during TAR7, but not when it mattered. I like how she's kind of proud of this -- "Overall, we tended to lose to them, but we managed to win the one leg that had the big money attached, and that's why we are awesome." Uchenna says there's "a rivalry" there. But he says it's just "healthy competition." He's not at all upset about the private investigators Rob hired. In the car, Joyce talks about their approximate deficit with start times, which is a little under 15 minutes.
6:28 AM. Eric and Danielle. Eric explains that he has to separate out the relationship aspects from everything that happens while they're racing, and then he says he treats Danielle just like a guy, "except she has nicer boobs." You know, there are compliments, and then there's...that. "You're just like a boobed man" is not exactly what I look for from boyfriends, in terms of warm expressions of affection.
