On the plane, Mirna is still harassing the personnel to go faster. That's...really something. A task where she doesn't even have to do anything, and she can still make it unpleasant. Danny and Oswald then get their clue, so they're in third place, with Charla and Mirna in last. Oswald tells the military guy that he needs to come over and tell Oswald's maid how to clean. Hee.
The BQs get to the cars with Eric and Pink pretty much right behind them. Both teams take off. Oswald and Danny follow, then Charla and Mirna. When they realize that they're in last place, Mirna frets about how this is the last elimination, and they certainly don't want to be knocked out now. It's like she and I are yin and yang. In so many ways, you know?
Commercials. I'm not sure Michael BublÃ© and Target make a good combination. I might die of the ubiquity.
When we return, Charla and Mirna are still fussing over being in last. Eric and Pink and Danny and Oswald are having navigation issues trying to find the Naval Base. Mirna pulls over for directions, telling someone that finding the Naval Base is "a matter of life and death." A woman agrees to lead them. Charla moans in the back seat about how when you work so hard, you want to be rewarded. I find that a very odd comment, since the very last thing they could argue that they did on that Detour was work hard, particularly as compared to other teams.
Dustin and Kandice get to the escorts, and they select a woman in whites, rather than one of the other folks, all of whom appear to be in camouflage. On the way to the car, they tell her how cute her outfit is, which...is a little hazardous, but seems to go over okay. You can kind of tell that they're seeing this as an episode of The Military Show rather than the actual military, which is exactly what it is. This is almost certainly PR stuff to the core, so it's not as bad as it might otherwise be to focus on wardrobe. In the car, they even admire her nails, with Dustin pointing out that "you can be in the Navy and have cute nails." And indeed, I'm sure you can, depending on your job. I will say that I kind of like the fact that they didn't go in assuming that the best escort to choose was automatically the biggest dude, you know? I'm glad that they didn't take that sort of approach, like people do with Survivor contestants, where they pretend that being big physically is all that it means to be good at stuff. Plus, it hits a button for me, as far as...hell, yes. I mean, if I were an all-female team, might I pick a woman on purpose? I might indeed. It's a small thing, but I kind of liked it that they did that. Anyway, they are dropped off at a clue box, and their clue reveals a Roadblock. "Who's ready to search far and wide?" Dustin takes it.
Phil explains that in this Roadblock, the person will use a handheld GPS to navigate through some very shallow woods to find a guy who's "lost" in the bush. When they find the guy, he'll give them new coordinates to a clearing. There, they'll call for pickup and throw a smoke grenade. Cool. I mean, who doesn't like grenades? Dustin gets suited up and leaves. The guy she's with tells her that she needs to keep the arrow moving straight ahead.
