Lynn and Alex are arriving at the purported pit stop location. Alex says that they're both hunting for a flag, but they're not seeing one. Hmm. Curious. They get out and run. "Honey, I don't think it's this way," Lynn says. "Come on," Alex says. "Let's run!" "Run the wrong way?" Lynn asks in disbelief. "Run any way, just run!" Alex says. Hmm. Curious. Not sure that's a winning strategy, there. They reach a sort of overlook, and Alex hops up on a wall to look around. He sees nothing. Hmm. Curious. Nyeh-nyeh-nyeh!
Commercials. I am so excited about Locusts!
When we return, Lynn is asking the relevant question: "Is this the right castle?" They find a guy who puts them on the trail of the right place, because it turns out that this is...the wrong place. Whoops. "We were at the wrong palace," Alex complains when they are back in their cab and Lynn is resting his enormous head on Alex's shoulder.
Uchenna and Joyce are approaching the pit stop, still. They smooch. "I need a hat," she grins. "You look beautiful," he says. "You look beautiful. You look beautiful." Easy for him to say, given that...she does. Uchenna and Joyce! Ron and Kelly! Rob and Amber! Suspense! Everyone wants to be first! And in their cab, Lynn and Alex discuss the fact that they've bitten their nails down to the point where they have nothing left to bite. "I'm going to have to start on my toenails," Lynn says. And...yuck. Just...yuck. In the Meredith and Gretchen cab, she has all the blame for the day laid out. "We had a slow elephant, slow tuk-tuk, and a slow camel," she says.
Ron and Kelly are dismayed when their tuk-tuk has to pull into the gas station. As they wait, Rob and Amber approach, and the teams see each other. It's pretty much neck-and-neck as they leave the gas station.
Pit stop. Uchenna and Joyce hope out of their taxi, and indeed, they are soon landing on the mat in front of Phil. Thank goodness. I totally wanted the victory for them. Welcome, Uchenna and Joyce, you are team number one. Yay! Team number one! Uchenna tells her she "made the ultimate sacrifice," which...not quite. And there seems to be no trip, as the trips are mostly alternating legs now, apparently. But still, yay! Uchenna asks Joyce if she wants to show her lovely head to Phil, and she declines. Twice. Heh. Phil asks her how she's feeling, and Joyce says that it was "really hard," but she again calls it "just hair." Uchenna again praises her for being so "determined."
