12:56 AM. Clowns. Al does the off-the-mat voice-over this week, and he explains that he and Jon have gotten closer as a result of doing the race, and their friendship is "better than ever." What, no acrimony? No power struggles? No talk of how much you hate everyone? Bo-ring! Don't these people realize they're on television? In other news, I could watch ClownJon run for hours and hours and never be bored, because it's that funny. I feel guilty talking about a grown man's "little legs," so I won't try to describe the run itself. They pile into a pretty red cab and go.
1:11 AM. David and Jeff. They fill us in that there's a relative windfall of $400 for the leg. David off-the-mat VOs that he thinks they're "always the underdog," which I think is highly amusing, because there's absolutely nothing that would make them the underdogs except their ineptitude. It's pretty much, "We're almost too dumb to do this -- but so far, not quite!" He goes on to say that he thinks they need to envision themselves being last a lot, because this is the best motivator of all. I envision them being last a lot myself, but it's more of a premonition than a psychological device.
