Guidos, approaching. They're walking. They're in absolutely no hurry whatsoever. As they approach, Joe voices over: "Billy noticed that there was a lot of shoes there." In other words, a lot of shoes that had been taken off outside. Shoes belonging to other people. Who are already inside. Joe: "But it still didn't dawn on me that everybody beat us here." Well no, it wouldn't. They land on the mat. Joe voices over that as they were sitting on the podium, he spotted Momily, who he assumed were coming in behind him and Bill.
Guido and Momily are asked to come sit at the big table with Phil. Yep, you know where this is going.
Phil tells Guido that they were the last team to arrive at the temple. They're horrified. He goes on to explain, however, that Momily chose not to do the Detour, and choosing to intentionally skip a task costs you twenty-four hours. So who's out? Momily. Who are the luckiest bastards in the history of reality television? Team Guido.
Now there's been some chatter about whether this was fair or not -- why was the penalty so big when the other penalties were so much smaller? Speaking for myself, I think this was perfectly fair and right. Momily didn't screw it up, as Ensure did at the Eiffel Tower, and they didn't stretch the meaning of the clue to their own advantage, as did Guido and Danza with the train in Italy (though I think that penalty was far too small to begin with, as I've said before). Momily gave up. They got tired and they said, "Screw it." And not saying "screw it" is an absolutely critical part of the game. Look at the last couple of episodes -- the mental fatigue is setting in for everybody, and everybody has wanted to quit. It's sad, but I think any other outcome would have been completely unfair. I love Momily, and nothing would have made me happier than getting rid of the Guidos, but this is completely the correct and fair ending.
"I'm so sorry," a Guido says to Momily. Umm well, I think they're sorry in the very, very narrow sense that if they had the ability to choose to keep Momily and eliminate another team of their choice, they'd probably do so. But frankly, I'm not sure I get a genuine regret vibe here. Bill comes over and gives Nancy a very fakey-looking hug. I mean, everybody loves Momily, but Bill is thinking what Bill is ALWAYS thinking: "Yesssss!"
