What they'll have to do is use a pair of orange flags on long handles to herd 150 ducks out of one of those pens and into the surrounding corral, then across a narrow, fenced-in bridge to another corral. And then they have to get them back to the pen -- all in ten minutes. That will earn them a clue, but if they run out of time, they have to wait for another turn. I'm sure if they explain the situation to the ducks, they'll be totally cooperative.
Meghan and Cheyne approach the field and, watch a farmer demonstrate as they walk past before Meghan Cheyne goes in to give it a shot. "Come on, monkeys," she says to her ducks, who are quite unimpressed with her grasp on taxonomy. As for her herding skills? Well, the locals can do this so well that it looks like they're practicing telekinesis on bed linens. Whereas Meghan's ducks scatter like ball bearings on a kitchen floor. Not off to a good start.
Garrett and Jessica arrive in second place, and Garrett drafts her for the Road Block. She gets started, and Cheyne and Garrett stand laughing at their women's incompetence from the waiting/spectator area. Yeah, it's still at the stage when they think it's funny.
Brian and Ericka arrive in third, and she takes it. "I probably would have killed one of these ducks," Brian interviews. That would have made it much harder to herd. Ericka gets right to work, baby-talking her ducks out of the pen. "Everybody shake a duck feather. Come on," she encourages happily. So far they're getting along great.
Matt's taking this for Team Pinky and the Brain, as are Flight Time and Sam for their respective teams. Meghan is still having trouble, getting too close to her flock of ducks so that she bisects the flock and they escape the perimeter of her flags. She interviews that it was frustrating, while Cheyne pats her shoulder supportively. Jessica's not doing much better, but Matt appears to have considerable early success, getting his ducks across the bridge quickly. Flight Time does almost as well, but Sam has one straggler that he has to chase down before shooing the herd through the chute. From the sidelines, Dan looks waaaay too frustrated. On the bright side, if they ever run into a Road Block where one of them has to give himself an aneurysm, they'll be in good shape.
