Memories, a blight on the corners of my mind
At this point, Trump reshuffled the teams. The new Apex was Jen, Elizabeth, Ivana, Raj, Chris, and Kevin. The new Mosaic was Wes, Kelly, Andy, Maria, Stacy, and Sandy.
We now watch Shirtless Andy and Shirted Wes chat in bed (not in the same bed, but still) about how good they think the new Mosaic will be. They think Sandy is a "workhorse," they think Kelly is good, they think Stacy has promise even though she's "annoying" (heh), and they think they'll do well. I can't say I am inspired by Andy's appearance so much, but...I do miss Wes all over again, in spite of the shirt. The first task for the mixed teams was providing dog services. Not kidding. We now learn that Apex started by talking to a local dog groomer, which didn't go well, because generally, professionals aren't in the business of admitting that you could do their jobs in Central Park with ten days of training. The groomer tells them that you can't just go out and wash unfamiliar dogs. You can't! It's maaaadness! He even warns them that they could pop a dog's eye out of the socket, which the Spike Jones Memorial Sound Guy punctuates with a "boing-oing-oing-oing" sound. Apex persevered and washed dogs anyway, though, just hoping not to have to return to the groomer later with a bag of dog eyeballs like, "Okay, you were right...uh, can you put these back in?" Mosaic's business involved dirty dogs also, unless you were Stacy, in which case it involved going, "Ewwww." I would point out that during the dog task, Sandy wears, I do believe, the exact denim skirt she wore during the M&M sisters task. If not, it is exactly the same length. Interestingly, she was not called a "whore" or a "hooker" or a "stripper" at the time. Just an observation.
