David tells them that it's time to get started (finally!), gets on his phone, and orders some lackey to "send in the winners' vehicle." Another white stretch limo pulls in for the Real World team. The losers, the Road Rules team, must ride in a van. I would so rather be in the van. I've ridden in those limos for weddings and such, and they really aren't that comfortable if you've got more than two people in them.
David gives them their first clue, which is a tape of David talking. I don't know why he couldn't have just said it in person. Anyway, the clue says that this mission will have them "rolling in circles." Jason reads the enclosed piece of paper, which tells them to go to the sports arena at Solano County Fairgrounds by noon. Both teams run off to their respective vehicles.
On the road, the teams trash-talk each other. Jason thinks his team has the better deal because they have a driver. Mark, who is driving the van, guesses that the other team is bored in the limo, and Noah agrees, since there is nothing to drink or eat. In the limo, Nathan pretends that he's talking on the phone, while he pretends to pour himself a drink. As the van passes the limo, Nathan and Beth pretend that they are drinking out of empty glasses and wave. Mark waves a wad of bills at Nathan for no apparent reason. Nathan threatens to spit on the van, and then Jason actually does. Class-ay. Noah retaliates by mooning them. I think bare ass trumps saliva. There's a sentence I never thought I would type. The Real World team thinks they will win, because their team is smarter. Someone points out that "Neil is Oxford-educated." Yeah, that did him a whole lot of good during the London season. Mark guesses that Neil is thinking, "What the hell am I dong in this crap?" From the look on Neil's face, I'd say Mark is right. Neil says that if they need any cognitive neuroscience, he's their man. Mark thinks that Neil is bitter already. Jason asks Neil whether he has his PhD, and when Neil says that he does, Jason congratulates him. They all joke that they're going to call him "Dr. Neil," and Jason adds that he is "flunky Jason." Yes. Yes, you are.
