Ron shines a nice woman's lovely shoes, introducing himself and making pleasant conversation while working with the little brush. Amber gets her first shine done. Ray gets his first. Joyce gets her first. Lynn has a little more trouble finding someone, which makes him say, "Whoo-oa," in this way that I can't find endearing because I'm still mad at him. I think it's Megan who's shining shoes for her team, and she gets her first guy on the hook. Whichever brother it is, he's off to a slow start. Susan shines her first pair, while Debbie, of course, has to make a great show of ooh-ing and aah-ing over her own work. I think it's so ironic that she hates Rob and Amber so much, because I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone in my life camera-mug any more than Debbie. She gets her first shine done, as Gretchen does -- but not, in Gretchen's case, until she has managed to smear black shoe polish all over this poor fellow's socks. I'm thinking that's not the way it's supposed to be done, although I admit I'm not a professional. Lynn finds his first victim, meanwhile, and we learn that like Michael Jordan dunking, Lynn cannot work without his tongue hanging out. Finally, the brother gets a sucker to bite and he's on his way.
Elsewhere, Ron is so speedy that he's already done. They really do know how to shine shoes in the military. Ray is finished as well, as is a smiling Amber. They all run back toward the union to meet their partners. Ron is the first to get back, and he and Kelly receive the next clue. When they open it, we find that the flights are spoon-fed at this point, and Ron and Kelly are on the first of two available flights to Santiago, Chile. Phil explains that they're being "awarded" tickets to Santiago, which likely means that some logistical oddity requires a sidestepping of the usual airport kerfuffle. The flights will leave 45 minutes apart. Once in Santiago, they'll have to ride a funicular to a statue of the Virgin Mary, where -- you guessed it -- there will be another clue. Or "clue," considering that even if your official team uniform were matching "I'm With Stupid" T-shirts worn with no irony, you could still probably solve most of these tricky "puzzles." ("'Go here'...what do you suppose that means?")
