Mark and Kristen immediately claim they're going to give up. Alex puts on his suit and interviews that they didn't even think that there might be a loophole or a twist. Craig and Jon sit at the halfway point and wait. Craig interviews that he was waiting for Jon to bring up the twist. Meanwhile, everyone else gives up and hops in the van to drive to the monument. Everyone is bitching the whole way. When they arrive, Jon asks if one person led the mutiny, and everyone claims that it was a mutual decision. Craig interviews that this is the second time that Mark has opted out which is suspicious. Jon can't believe that they didn't even try. Clay interviews that he's never quit something without trying. Jon announces that Craig gets the exemption and no money goes in the pot. These people kind of disgust me. I liked the earlier seasons where the people actually worked together, which is the only way to sabotage The Mole. Horseshit.
At dinner, Craig says that he feels guilty, not for taking the exemption, but because he didn't acknowledge that everyone let him get out first in the first mission in the episode. Craig interviews that everyone thinks he's The Mole. The others agree that they all would have gone for the exemption too, but claim they wouldn't have been so mean about it. Oh, for Christ's sake. What show did these people think they were signing up for? That classy reality show where you don't have to humiliate yourself to win? Because that's about none of them. Even on The Amazing Race, people wear silly costumes and shave their heads and throw up in bowl and then eat it. Seriously. Nicole claims that there's not enough money in the pot to make it worth it, which Alex disagrees with in an interview. Craig interviews that Paul has a temper, Mark is paranoid, and Nicole is a psychopath, so he feels like he's surrounded by crazy people.
