Rob and Kim find the sculpture and the yellow cap. They get a cab who agrees to take them, and he quickly says he knows how to get there. "As fast as you can," Rob says. "It's worth a million dollars." I never know why people think that's going to be effective. To quote Wil and Tara's taxi non-wrangler, "I don't care. I'm not gettin' it." Meanwhile, Tyler explains to his driver that there are people who are going to be trying to beat them there, so they need to go fast. "All we can do is hope that the boys get lost," Kimberly says.
Tense people driving in cabs. James and Tyler's driver, on the phone, getting directions. Guessing at which way is "north." Yipes. The first person they ask about St. Basil Academy has no idea where it is, but the second guy is basically like, "Yeah, it's over there." Rob and Kim! James and Tyler! Rob and Kim! James and Tyler!
A cab drives onto the grounds of a school. Phil! Is standing on the big red mat! Teams are waiting by the side of the mat, cheering just like they care! And around the corner... running up over the hill... EXACTLY LIKE IN THE PREVIEWS FROM LAST WEEK... James and Tyler! Nobody at the finish line really looks like they care, but the guys throw down their packs and start running gleefully. Welcome, James and Tyler, you are the official winners! They hug. They hug Phil. The BQs pretend to be happy for them. James reports that he's "almost numb." And he should know. There is much rejoicing. They can't believe it! Seriously, it is unbelievable how easy it was to tell from the previews who won. The closest they came to creating suspense was that it was so obvious that it seemed like maybe it was a fake-out. Quoting myself directly from a chat I had the night that preview aired: "I suspect that in one way or another, that's cooked up. I just don't think they'd give it away that much." Shows you what I know.
