It's a new day, and The Knowns travel to Marine Stadium in Long Beach. Sami tells them that they're competing against The Unknowns in today's challenge. Their job is to get everyone from the beach across the canal using a set of rafts to build a bridge. The first part of the bridge will be from the shore to a pier, where they'll get another set of rafts to build a bridge to the finish point. The Unknowns completed this challenge a few hours ago, with a time of 38 minutes and 23 seconds. They did so by utilizing a technique involving a lot of rolling and collaborative teamwork. If The Knowns beat that time, they'll get a three-pound advantage on the scale. If they don't, The Unknowns will get those three pounds.
The Knowns discuss their strategy, which seems to be all over the place. Courtney tells us that the communication wasn't working. Watching them talk about this makes me need more wine. Before they know it, Sami sounds the horn and it's time to begin. They still haven't really solidified a strategy. They end up smushing poor Irene under a raft. She's basically in the middle of a raft sandwich. Rafts are floating everywhere, and the leaderless Knowns are not getting very far. Sami points out that Jay is standing on the shore and not doing anything. The clock ticks down, and with ten minutes left The Knowns have not quite made it to the first pier. They are so not winning this. Indeed, not all of the team members have made it to the halfway point by the time the 38 minutes ends. The Knowns are demoralized, and facing a three-pound disadvantage. That was seriously one of the saddest displays I've ever seen on this show, and I recapped the season of Heba.
Moses, meanwhile, has bursitis in his knee and enjoys shadow boxing. He also has a family that he loves. Kaylee is proud of Moses, and knows that her mom would also be proud to see the drive that he's been exhibiting. Moses cries and says he's ashamed that he hasn't been the husband and father that his family deserves. I guess without Jillian on hand the contestants have to psychoanalyze themselves. Moses tells us that if his wife and his girls are standing by his side in the end, it's worth everything.
