Location number three is reached by Bopper and Mark and Brendon and Rachel. Driving by, Art and JJ realize they're the only ones not choosing this option. They stop and get out so Art can use some pretty good Spanish to ask one of the locals for directions to where they're trying to go for Light My Fire, but no help is forthcoming, from her or from the other racers working on the solar kitchen task. They get a little crabby as they get back in the car. It's just as well that they're keeping their short fuses clear of those hot reflectors.
Bopper and Mark are making good progress. As Mark explains in an interview, "My boy loves Legos. There's a spot for everything." Bopper's impressed with Mark's skills. Meanwhile, Rachel whines to Brendon, "I'm sorry I'm not good at this." Brendon says it's okay, which is so not what Rachel wanted to hear, so she fishes further, adding, "Sorry, I'm just a girl." Brendon remembers belatedly that it's his job to constantly buck her up, so that's what he starts doing. Meanwhile, Art asks for directions at another spot, only to be pointed eight kilometers back the way they came. Driving back, JJ suggests they go back and do solar panels if they can't find it quickly. "Man, you go from high to low," he complains. Yes, that's called bipolar disorder.
JJ says they're 20 minutes down and Art tells him to shut up and quit fixating on it. Whatever advantage they have in strength and speed, they're fast making up for in dysfunction. Fortunately they find the place they're supposed to be, and they get out and run though the desert. But they're still bitching the whole way.
Speaking of bitching, Other Rachel and Major Dave seem to have their dish constructed, but they have to wait for approval from a judge before they can put the kettle on. "Is it worth being crabbypants about it?" Other Rachel asks Dave. Well, obviously it was to him. Meanwhile, other teams are exploring some new network-friendly curse words as they run into problems. Ralph: "Sh... nikeys." Vanessa: "Son of a monkey's uncle" ("Monkey's cousin" wouldn't have the same ring). Jamie: "This is hotter than sh... enanigans." Of course, she says this while steadying the completed reflector in position, with her face showing over the top rim. Effectively she's an ant holding up her own magnifying glass.
JJ and Art find the mostly dry riverbed with a herd of donkeys and drivers waiting. There's one animal with a load of wood already tied on with a serape for them to examine as an example, so now they just have to copy that -- after scrounging up enough driftwood, that is. Looks like they need 40 pieces total. Being the only team doing this should be to their advantage.
