Anderson voice-overs that the players will need a lot more than luck because "the game is about to take a strange and unexpected twist." Last year's Mole, Kathryn Price, saunters into the room carrying a box. I'm glad to see that she and Anderson are still together. Kidding! I'm kidding. I know she married some other dude. Kathryn tells the contestants that she has a special delivery, and puts the box on the table. In an interview, Bill says that it was a big surprise to see her. Kathryn explains that it's a preview of the next game. Al unwraps the box and then screams when a maggot or some sort of small worm falls out. Everyone is grossed out. The box is opened to reveal tons of creeping invertebrates. Heather guesses that they're going to have to eat bugs for an exemption. Kathryn leaves the box there, wishes them luck, and dimples on out of there. Al wants to leave the table immediately, but Dorothy protests that they can't just leave a box of maggots for the wait staff to clean up. Thank you, Dorothy! That would be a shitty thing to do. Bill digs through the box with his fork, trying to see if there is a clue on the bottom. Apparently, there isn't. Good idea, though. Heather and Dorothy are standing as far away from the table as possible. Dorothy notices a maggot in one of the drinking glasses and Heather gets the willies and runs away. In an interview, Bill says that Al was very vocal about the fact that he wouldn't eat bugs, even for $100,000. Bill claims that he has eaten bugs before, so he would definitely do it for $100,000. I've got to tell you -- if it was just eating a few bugs for that kind of cash, I'd be all over it. Especially after seeing every other reality-show contestant do it and live.
It's 2:00 AM. The music sounds like The Exorcist. Thunder rolls. The camera pans around a room filled with creepy dolls. Well, I guess they're just regular dolls, but when you get that many of them in one place, it's kind of creepy. Anderson welcomes the contestants to "Anderson's Fun House." He's speaking in a very Norman Bates-type voice, which I find more annoying than creepy, but the contestants seem pretty creeped out. To Anderson's credit, he doesn't break character throughout. Anderson explains that his mother built the house for him when he was very small, and since his mother is Gloria Vanderbilt, I thought he was serious. But I guess it was a joke. Anderson asks if they like his dolls. Dorothy and Heather look at each other and laugh nervously. In an interview, Heather says that the dolls frighten her because she assumed they would be involved in some sort of weird game they had to play.
