TK gives his camel a "Doing great, buddy!" His tone causes me to think he's forgotten that's a lady camel. You know, since he's milking it. (I just realized that we missed out on having Colin scream, "I'm MILKIN' it!") Christina gently praises her camel. She is used to handling the temperamental boob, one might think. There's a great shot of Jason telling Lorena "you can do it, baby," followed by the camel shaking its head, clearly indicating that Lorena cannot do it. It's apocryphal, I'm sure, but it's still funny. In any event, Lorena can't get started.
TK's bowl is already full enough. He goes to drink it and has a few gagging issues, to which he admits in an interview. He gets it down eventually, though, and they're done. The clue tells him and Rachel to lead four camels along a path to another clue. Phil explains that you have to take these camels to the "waiting nomads," and then you can get your next clue. Hand off your camels; get your next clue. I love the idea of waiting nomads involved in a task, like they were just wandering by, and the show was like, "Could you stop for a minute and hand off these clues? Just while you're here?"
Don is next to drink the milk and get the clue, as Lorena's camel kicks her milk away. I think that camel has met Lorena. Julia loses most of her milk as well. It's Camel Struggle Time! Christina's done, and she's allowed to leave, but when Jennifer asks whether she can go, the guy tells her there's not enough milk in the bowl, which...there clearly isn't. I don't know what she thought she was pulling, but that milk is up to the line about as much as she got 2,000 francs in change. Ron and Christina leave in third place.
Up ahead, Nick is concerned, because he and his grandpa are just following TK and Rachel, and he's not convinced that TK and Rachel actually know where they're going. Meanwhile, Ron coaxes his camels, and Christina compliments him on being so "good with animals." Ron tells her that he's great with them, because he has their "stench." The stench, that is, of severe family problems. They decide -- really, Ron decides -- just to follow the other two teams. As young Nick has already observed, that is a very risky strategy.
Vyxsin drinks the camel milk. Jen yells at Nate that everybody else is already finished, which...isn't true, certainly. She's going to get a reputation as the Girlfriend Who Cried Everybody Else Is Already Finished. As Kynt and Vyxsin leave with their camels, TK and Rachel are deciding that they've been going (and leading the group) in the completely wrong direction. Christina points out to her dad that she didn't want to follow everybody else to begin with. Ron interviews that he needs to figure out a way to trust Christina more when she wants to lead, and admits that she's leading better than he is. Also, she isn't leading with her busted intestine.
