Abbie finally gets a thumbs-up from the judge and applause from the locals, so she and Ryan get to move on in third place. They'll be the only team doing "Straw Dogs." "I'm sorry," Abbie says to Ryan, because he's a dick.
Brent and Trey take on this Roadblock when the last two teams arrive. Brent interviews that he was pretty confident about this task, having built stuff from scratch on the farm. As he'll soon learn, the difference there is that he's his own judge. Kelley is struggling with the heat, but she says they don't let that stop them in the monster truck world. The main thing I'm learning so far from this season is that all the skills anyone needs in life can be gleaned from being a monster trucker. And here I thought it was all just running over things and saying MUD PIT in a really deep voice. Jaymes chats up the crowd while trying to build his scale: "Y'all having fun watching this stupid white boy do this stuff?" I think the term, Jaymes, is gora. Josh calls out to Brent to make sure he's following directions, only to be told, "Shut up, Josh. Please?" The other racers in the waiting area laugh about what Lexi calls "the true love that comes out of this race." "When you've been together fourteen years you'll know," Brent tells her, as if Trey's going to be talking by then. Jaymes gets approval for his scale and proudly shares that his dad's a carpenter. Rob tells Kelley to take her time. Jaymes gets his pans loaded up and balanced, so he and James are out of there in fourth place, choosing to do the bamboo task.
Up ahead, Natalie and Nadiya get to the bambooyard and start loading up poles. They nearly whack a guy in the face with the trailing end, so he responds in the international language of an indignant, "Hey!"
Team Metal and their volunteer entourage make it to the construction site for what the sign says is Shabman Vegetable Oil Industries Ltd, and the big racks of bamboo already there tell them they've made it to the right place. But first the judge has to check their cargo, which is of course a suspenseful moment given all the work they put into just getting here. Fortunately, they're all set. The whole crowd here cheers like it's a sporting event, and James and Abba are handed their stump of bamboo with that house painted on it. Phil narrates, "Teams must now figure out that the image stenciled on their clue is Lok Shilpa Jadughar." It's actually a collection of pink and white buildings surrounded by a metal fence, from which Phil tells us that it's a folk art and craft museum that serves as the Pit Stop for this leg, and that the last team to check in may be eliminated. James and Abba get into a cab as we all think, "Not bloody likely."
