The saga of the Chipsters and the cheese continues. They actually load too much onto the scale at one point, but they remove some until they weasel it down to 500 kilograms exactly. Ding ding! The scale guys give them a hearty, warm round of applause, although when Chip goes in to hug one of them, he gets the straight-arm. Heh. Stay out of the cheese man's personal space, there, pretty boy. The crowd gathered outside to watch cheers appreciatively. The Chipsters get the next clue, which sends them to The Smoker.
Speaking of which, ClownJon and Al are on their way there right now. They spot the statue, and Al pulls the clue. Roadblock. As Phil explains, in this week's Roadblock, the chosen team member has to pluck twenty-five live eels from the bottom of a boat and put them into a box. The clue very specifically says they can only use their hands to catch the eels. I'm not sure what else they're afraid the team members will try to use, but I suppose you have to cover your bases. Al takes the Roadblock for the clowns. ClownJon keeps up a constant stream of very loud kibitzing as Al goes after the eels.
Millie and Chuck are making their way to the pit stop. They park and run up to the mat. Welcome, Millie and Chuck, you are team number one. I had exactly one thought when I saw this greeter, by the way: Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It's sad how our views of history become warped. Oh, and because there is absolutely no justice, Millie and Chuck win yet another stupid cruise for coming in first for the leg. I actually had to fast-forward through the part where they won the cruise the second time I watched the show to write the recap, because I can't stand listening to Millie get that happy about a cruise when she's spent the entire leg acting so nasty. Talk about your undeserved rewards. Phil asks them how the trip has been for them, and Millie says it's been "hard." "It's hard for us to work together. He doesn't trust me," Millie says, shooting Chuck a condescending little see-how-I-was-right-about-everything look. She may have said "it takes two" in the cab, but she's sticking to her story. In the World's Most Uncomfortable Interview, Chuck says, "To Millie, I think 'trust' is to always do exactly what she says. And I don't think that's necessarily trust." Millie makes a disgusted, eye-rolling face as he says this, which pretty much provides proof positive that it's true, as if you couldn't tell from her behavior. Which you can. I just don't get it at all, because she has been bossy and pushy for practically the entire race, and we have repeatedly seen her order him around as to who's going to do what and how he needs to go faster...the idea that he doesn't trust her and won't listen to her is just laughably ridiculous. I think Millie needs to get over herself. A lot.
