Reichen & Chip are having problems eating the octopus. Reichen wants to vomit, saying the octopus’ tentacles are suctioning onto their teeth, making them impossible to swallow. They wait for them to die on the plate. Chip’s eyes are bloodshot. He doesn’t look happy. Back at the dojo, Jon breaks all his boards. Doesn’t look that hard until Kelly steps up. Jon tries to coach her, but she is having problems. Not as much as Reichen is having, though. He still can’t swallow the octopus. Chip comes up with the idea of putting it in glasses of water they can gulp down as “shots,” much like the oyster shots at their wedding. This seems to work. Kelly says she knows she can’t go eat whatever disgusting food they have prepared for them, so she has to break the boards. Jon says she is tough. Kelly hits the boards and winds up with bloody knuckles. Jon tells her to act like she is hitting his face and when she does that, all the boards break! I love it!! They finish the Detour and get their clue. It tells them to make their way to the pit stop, Gyeongbokgung Palace. They get in a taxi and head off.
The Clowns get to the Detour and choose Hands. With much encouragement from Chip, Reichen finally finishes the octopus and he & Chip head off to the pit stop. The Goats are the last to the Detour and choose Stomach. The Clowns get to the dojo and break the boards very fast. The Goats get to the Stomach Detour, see the octopus, and aren’t too sure about this one. They take a few bites and decide to switch to Hands. Al finishes up for the Clowns and they head for the pit stop. The Goats get to the dojo after the Clowns leave, break the boards, and head to the pit stop as well.
Kelly and Jon’s taxi driver is confused. Reichen & Chip fume that their driver is a wimp and won’t pass anyone. Kelly & Jon and Reichen & Chip are both in the correct area and are looking for the flags. Kelly and Jon have a tough time navigating around the Palace but get to the pit stop first. I’m loving this so much! They are team number one and their joy is more than apparent. Kelly says they are “number one virgins.” Jon says that Kelly kicked the other guy teams’asses. Reichen & Chip are not far behind and check in as team number two. They both seem pretty happy.
The Clowns seem to be stuck in traffic while the Goats are moving at a good pace. However, the Clowns get to the Palace first and are team number three. They are still as happy as ever. The Goats run up to the mat and find out they are in last place. However, the good news is that this is the second of three non-elimination legs. Phil asks them if they are happy and Dave says that they will never quit. What is up with Phil’s heavy jacket? You would think they were in Alaska or something! Dave says there is no other option from here on out but to kick ass and win.
Next week, tensions rise as the teams battle to be in the final three. Kelly drops face first into her worst nightmare, and Reichen may be sleeping with the fish as a shark creeps up behind him.
I have to say that for a non-elimination round, this was one of the most intense episodes so far this season. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, but that may have something to do with finally getting to see Kelly & Jon come in first place. They won a trip too! It’s about time; they deserve it for all the bickering they do. I swear, it holds them together. Oh well. Next week, I’m betting it’s the Goats that go. Why do I say that? Well, because I predicted the other three to be the last teams left. Am I psychic? We will find out!
