Brent and Josh join the cocktail party and Brent says they knew they were ahead, "So we felt that we could play around and enjoy the experience a little bit." In other words, no way were they not going to work it. They quickly identify a Brezhnev by his eyebrows, a Stalin by his mustache, a Lenin by his pointed bard and three-piece suit, a Tsar Nicolas 11 and a Peter the Great. "Mr. Great, meet Mr. Stalin," Brent says to a couple of the guests. Josh dances with a Catherine the Great, Brent mock-fences with her brother Peter and they go into the next room to write down the number of each they met for the Alexander Pushkin lookalike: two Stalins, three Trotskys, four Catherines, five Brezhnevs, five Peters, six Tsar Nicolii and seven Lenins. I don't know what happened to Rachmaninoff and I think the race really missed an opportunity to bury them in Khrushchevs. Anyway, Pushkin gives them a rather impressed "Da" and their next clue, so they're headed to the Pit Stop in fifth place. They return to the party to thank everyone and drink their health. "Lovely for a dead crowd," Josh says. Wow, they killed that leg. They probably would have won it if only they could have started twelve hours earlier.
Abbie and Ryan make it to the Pit Stop, Ryan laughing as though he has come completely unglued, which he may well have done so. They're Team Number Four, to their lack of surprise. Abbie says they'll come back tomorrow and Ryan adds, "We've also knocked out the tougher challenges that we've faced individually and the fears that we've had." Whatever that means. "So hopefully it's a smoother ride and we can get back up to the top." This Catherine tells them "do svidaniya." "Which means goodbye," Phil tells them firmly. Get off my mat already, you weirdo.
Brent and Josh run to the mat, Josh dropping his rolling suitcase on the ground as he goes and they are Team Number Five. "Today was fabulous," Josh says. "We're doing something right because we're still in the game. There's a surprise every leg." Or in the case of this leg, several.
