2:45 AM. Monica and Sheree. There is not a word about their husbands this week (yay!), as Monica states simply that they're "still getting along great." In the car on the way there, we hear Monica voice over that they never yell at each other or demean each other, no matter what happens. She then interviews that they wouldn't mind seeing Tian not around anymore, but it's really hard to tell whether that's personal or strategic. It seems like she's saying Tian is nasty, but she also might be saying Tian is tough. It's cut funny, so it's hard to tell.
At the Marseilles airport, the tough but nasty Tian is checking on the Air France counter, which is closed, what with it being the middle of the night. The guy advises her that it will be open around 5:00 AM.
2:54 AM. Chipsters. Chip manages to make it through the rip-read without quite as much bizarre enunciating as last week. Maybe someone told him that even though he was in a foreign country, most of the viewers speak English. Reichen, on the other hand, has something under his arm that looks like a big piece of posterboard with some kind of big brightly-colored chart on it. Apparently, they have hit Marseilles right in the middle of the science fair, and Reichen could not resist entering his analysis of how quickly water beads on his cheekbones. In the car, Chip makes the mistake of commenting that Marseilles is pretty, which brings a bit of snorting and disapproval from Reichen about how they don't have time to see the sights, and how when they get distracted by pretty things (their reflections, for instance), they start missing turns and doing other bad and un-race-like things. As Reichen says, "We have a tendency to drive by stuff." Hee. "Can't do that," he says, with a weird, smirking, stoner-like waggle of his head -- the kind of smirking stoner head-waggle that is only cute if you're Breckin Meyer. Everybody else? No.
