Finally Chad and Stephanie make it to the mat in eighth place. They're thrilled just to still be in the race at this point, and Chad interviews that it was "humbling." He even admits that arguing has negatively affected their game, and "I really do believe that we're going to grow on this adventure." He'd better.
Time passes. Jenna clips her knight on the feet, and it totters but doesn't fall. Nick and Vicky finish their boat ride. Once they're gone, Tony tries to step into the one he'll be taking with Ron, and even though he's holding on tight to the rope, he still topples like Herman Munster. Jenna takes her knight out at the knees, and they're off to the Pit Stop. Nick will be doing the Road Block for the biker team. Ron and Tony can't get their boat underway so much as underwater. Andie and Jenna are team number nine. "Oh my God," Jenna says. "Oh, my God," Tony says in a clever edit as his boat sinks under him yet again. Now it's a race for last, as Nick's launched watermelons close in on his knight and Ron and Tony fail to close in on any sort of workable technique for operating the boat. Nick finally knocks over the knight while Ron and Tony take a step back and talk about balance, which, as Tony points out, is problematic because he weighs a hundred pounds more than his partner. I don't know, that didn't seem to be a problem for Gary and Mallory.
Nick and Vicky arrive at the mat, and Phil wants to taunt them a bit by asking, "What's the name of this country?" "We're in London, right?" Vicky guesses. Phil deadpans, "That's right, the country of London," which is uncharacteristically mean of him, but then if you're going to race around the world you should try to know a little about it. More seriously, Phil asks where they think they are in the rankings, and Nick guesses tenth place. Phil says they should gamble in Vegas, because he's correct. I wonder if that was Phil's polite little way of telling them they would have been better off staying home.
Ron and Tony are actually making progress, but with their size, they've got no margin for error. Sure enough, over they go. "We tried our best," Ron says as they wade back to shore. So, they're done, then? The knights gallop wistfully across the tournament grounds, and Ron and Tony, who had such high hopes for the race, arrive at the mat without having even finished the first leg, as far as we can see. The knight welcomes them to Eastnor, and Ron calls him "sire" when they thank him. Phil tells them they're the last team to arrive, and regretfully Philiminates them. Post-leg, Ron interviews that just getting to help his best friend live his dream means that "life is good." Sure, it wasn't his dream that got scattered all over the English countryside and then drowned in a moat. Back on the mat, Ron says more nice things about Tony, like how supportive he is. "I'm blessed to have a friend like this. It's a gift from God." "Absolutely," Tony agrees. Is he saying the feeling is mutual, or that Ron's lucky to have him? Depending on Tony's mood right now, I guess it could be taken either way.
