We return to the Big Dig. (No, not the boondoggle -- the Roadblock.) At long last, Mirna unearths the scarab. "Ohh, finally," Charla moans listlessly. "How the hell did she find it and I can't?" Linda wonders aloud. "Good job, Mirna, good job!" Charla says as they receive their clue. "Let's get our ass out of here."
On the pit stop boat, Colin is looking through his binoculars. Intensely. "I see the flags, and I see the pit stop, baby. Land ho!" They're so cocky, but the thing is...they've earned it. It's hard to argue. They run up to the pit stop, and the greeter welcomes them to Luxor. Phil informs them that they're team number one. Again. Oh, and the "good news for you" segment has returned, as they've won a trip to "exotic Mexico." Is Mexico exotic? Because...you know, when you're in Texas, where they're from, it's kind of...right there, you know? It's like offering me a trip to exotic Iowa. (Shudder.)
Chip and Kim are approaching the pit stop, and Chip is chattering excitedly, as he does. "Baby, stop trying to get all gussied up, so you can come off the Nile Queen Nefertiti!" he chuckles as Kim fusses with her do-rag. The Twinkies are also in their pit stop boat, taking a moment to appreciate their surroundings. Well, good for them. Maybe if they looked around more, they wouldn't get lost so easily. Brandon and Nicole and Charla and Mirna are similarly winging down the Nile.
Linda, on the other hand, is still in the seventh circle of Roadblock hell, known as the Unending Sand Pit. It now appears that Linda has dug out the entire pit, except for the big mound of sand she's built up in the middle. "You know, if the brothers come and find it in two seconds, I'm going to be pissed."
Speaking of Marshall and Lance -- although it's not clear whether there is any proximity in time between these events -- they're just now reading the Roadblock clue. Lance takes it, since they don't know what it's going to be.
Chip and Kim land on the mat, and are team number two. They smooch. Love!
Linda digs miserably, voicing over that she "just couldn't find it." Marshall and Lance are seen approaching the dig site.
The Twinkies are team number three. That's very impressive, for them. Unsurprisingly, it's mostly the result of good luck.
Linda seems to have started to dig through the hill of sand she had built up in the middle. Marshall and Lance inch toward the Roadblock.
Brandon and Nicole are team number four.
"Where could it be?" Linda wonders as she continues to dig. "Oh, Linda," Karen sighs. Marshall and Lance inch and inch and inch toward the dig site. Interestingly, this took them a long time, because when Lance read the clue, it was mostly light outside, and now it's mostly dark.
