Daniel's a backpack sandwich as he watches Amy finish and they rush out, leaving Brittany behind with the dregs of her hasma. Natalie and Nadiya arrive in sixth place, and now Nadiya's going to pay for her earlier lack of support for Natalie by having to chopstick up two papaya-bowls full of warm spunk. Brittany finishes up and reads that they'll need to search the Bund for a woman using "an...a backus?" See what I'm saying? They leave just as Nadiya is starting to eat, bending over the table from a standing position into the papaya bowls and holding her hair out of the way with one hand while Natalie leads a chant of "Twinny! Twinny! Twinny!" Two things. One: I think I may have just figured out how to tell them apart, because one is supportive and one is not. Two: They call each other "Twinny?"
Trey and Lexi are the first team from the second flight to get to the arena, and apparently Trey's something of a Ping-Pong ringer back home. Still, he doesn't get his point until the kid is playing with the clipboard. Eighth place is eighth place, though.
Cut to the Bund, Shanghai's famous (and huge) waterfront promenade, with all the public art and space that implies, not to mention the spectacular view of Shanghai's iconic skyline across the river. James and Abba are the first to arrive, and they climb the steps to the promenade. Immediately past those steps, sitting under a sun umbrella next to a young man, with her back to the railing and the water beyond, is a woman with an abacus. Team Metal, alas, walks right past her. Abbie and Ryan also show up and fail to find her quickly. "Why isn't she using a calculator?" Ryan wonders, either seriously or not, but not that cleverly either way.
Back the Table Tennis place, Lumberjack Rob's opponent has moved on to a pan. The ball clanks against it a few times before the kid misses and gives Rob his point, putting Team Lumberjack in ninth place. At the restaurant, Natalie is still cheering Nadiya on, leading the other diners with Bollywood dances and everything. Meanwhile, Monster Trucker Rob arrives and takes this one just as the twins are getting their clue and leaving for the Bund. Rob sits down and is presented with his food, saying, "I don't know what I gotta do." That right there is a red flag, but he starts eating when the papaya's opened up for him. "The first bite wasn't too bad, but then it starts working in your head what you're actually eating and you see how much of it. I mean, there was a lot." And he doesn't know the half of it yet. Literally. With Kelley cheering him on, he picks up one of the papayas and tips the contents into his mouth. And almost immediately gags them back out again. This is the kind of thing that's going to have new viewers clamoring to tune back in next week, isn't it?
