1:15 PM. Papa Wally and the Tonyas are getting ready to go. When they rip their clue, it tells them to "find the largest office chair in the world." And you thought nothing exciting was going to happen in this leg. Phil explains that said office chair is located in Anniston, Alabama, 100 miles away. When we see a shot of the chair, it turns out that it's kind of just...a chair, more than an "office chair." I was envisioning one of the doodads with the pneumatic lifts and all the levers for adjusting the lumbar support. This is more like what the Jolly Green Giant encounters when he goes to the DMV. It's a 24-year-old "roadside attraction," which isn't surprising, because that means somebody came up with it in about 1981, not one of the most scintillating periods in American cultural history. You can imagine somebody spending some time building a giant chair at a time when the alternative was Rick Springfield. When they arrive at the chair, one member of each team will have to climb a ladder up onto the seat to get their clue. It's kind of sad how there's no activity around the office chair anywhere, but I found Graceland to be the same way. I don't know what I expected, but if you've ever been there, you know it's like, "motel, motel, gas station, White Castle, gas station, Graceland, motel, gas station." Maybe Graceland would seem more spectacular if it had a really big chair in the front yard.
