Amani and Marcus, the former NFL player, are leaving in fifth place, at 10:15. Marcus, who is never at a loss for a reason to get excited, is currently making do with being excited to say "Indonesia."
The "father-son adventurers" team, Laurence & Zac, head out in sixth place at 10:22, and Laurence mispronounces Yogyakarta worse than anyone. A little vindication for Americans tired of getting beat up for their geographical ignorance. Which, after all, we watch this show to remedy. While they cab to the airport, Zac tries to explain to the camera why the double elimination is significant for them, until Laurence literally holds up a banana he found in his backpack and says, "Banana." Laurence may not be such an evening person, I'm thinking.
Olympic snowboarders Andy & Tommy, who footraced Laurence and Zac to the mat at the end of the previous leg, rip their clue at 10:23, and are excited to go to "Indo," which is apparently "the ultimate place for a snowboarder to go." We don't really get an explanation from of why that is, and instead have to listen to them say "dude" to each other a lot.
Ernie and Cindy are already at the airport, but they're learning at the ticket counter that the next flight to Jakarta isn't until 8:45 the next morning. "Looks like a night at the airport," Cindy says. What kind of control freak is she to put up with that, anyway? I know control freaks who would have taken a connecting flight to Atlanta to make the trip faster.
Bill and Ron, the two flight attendants who are also a couple, are the eighth team to leave, at 10:48 PM. Bill (he's the more Nathan Lane-slash-Cameron Tucker of the two of them, not that we know which is which yet) says they're not trying to change how anyone thinks of gay people. However, "We have this thirteen-year relationship of truth and honesty, we're truly in love with each other, we're truly best friends." Which may change the opinion of Andy Rooney, whose final broadcast was just a few minutes before this. Can you believe we finally won that feud?
The ninth-place departure of showgirls Kaylani and Lisa at 11:09 is uneventful, except for how Lisa, unfolding a giant map in the backseat of the cab, elbows Kaylani in the face. That'll learn her to lose her passport. The cabdriver seems to enjoy it, though.
Liz and Marie, the identical twins who are at least helping me out a little by wearing different outfits this week, leave at 11:31 PM, and try not to be negative about the double elimination. You'd think they'd be used to double things by now.
