Here come BJ and Tyler, dancing and demonstrating, because they can't not. They shtick their way onto the mat at last, where Phil tells them they are team number two. There is mercilessly little of what I'm sure was a long routine about coming in second, just as everything is a long routine.
Joseph gets his polo shot to go, so they can leave. Fran is kibitzing Barry, calling his effort "pathetic." I would have worshipped him forever if he had turned around at that moment and said, "Oh, go spot an engine." Although I guess he can't, if he didn't know where the engine was, either. As MoJo leaves, Fran yells at Barry until he finally gets the shot done. Lake and Michelle, meanwhile, are arriving. When they read the Roadblock, she really isn't sure she can do it, but they're facing his having done the first four, so she really has to start doing some, to say the least, or they're going to be in big trouble very quickly. She finally agrees to do the kayak. For whatever reason, Lake and Michelle are spending this portion of the show wearing these weird harnesses made of string that I do not know the purpose of at all. They're kind of doing a lifting-and-separating thing on both parties, but it's not a good situation. Once Michelle gets into the water, she finds herself a bit confused early on, and her first shots are not good. She really does throw like a girl, in the way in which that pejorative does have its place and time. "You got to throw it now, come on!" he harangues, saying that he should have been the one to do the task. Boooo! Can't do that, dude. Take it or don't, you know?
Commercials. I don't like DirectTV guy or the other guy, so there.
When we return, Michelle is still at the Roadblock, and Lake is still yelling at her. Finally, she gets a very close shot, handed to her by the other players, and she gets the ball in. When they read their clue, Lake does one of the funniest bits I've ever seen anyone do inadvertently. Before she even opens the clue, he's hollering, "Pit stop!" So then she reads: "Make your way on foot " And Lake cuts in: "YES! FOOT! YES!" It's not for any particular reason, and the delivery is so freaky and strange that it's fundamentally hilarious. He's almost squealing with happiness, and I have no idea why, but I'm with him. They leave.
