The Schroeders realize that they did need 55 South after all. Whoops. They're feeling a little silly, because the park is a half-hour from their house. Apparently, they are unaware that nobody ever does well in their hometown.
The Bransens arrive at the riverboat. The Linzes are paddling. The Paolos get to the Detour, and they choose to Work. This means that they have to put on silly-looking lumberjack outfits, with the plaid and so forth. The pinks read the Detour clue, and Sharon says, "Twelve-inch diameter? Can't be that big, girls." And she holds her hands about six inches apart. Well-trained by her husband, that one. The Paolos rapidly drop their first slice off the log.
Back on the riverboat, there's just a lot of losing going on, until the Bransens get their dealer to bust.
Weavers looking for the state park. When the Gaghans get there, they decide to take Play. I think when two of your team members are 12 and under, it's got to be tempting not to take what look to be the Brawn versions of the Detours. At the same time, the Linzes are deciding that Play is for the birds, because it appears to be luck and they can't win. I do like the fact that as the Gaghans head toward the riverboat, Carissa has chosen a hot-pink boa. The Paolos get their second slice off the log.
The Gaghans arrive at the blackjack table and immediately begin losing. The Paolos get their third slice. The Linzes are now sawing, and they get their first one. The Paolos, interestingly, are the first to complete the Detour. Phil explains that they now have to drive across "the world's longest bridge," which goes across Lake Pontchartrain, to New Orleans. There, they'll park on Esplanade Avenue and then run through the French Quarter to Preservation Hall. That will be the pit stop. Last team there "may" be eliminated.
