We begin our story, well the second episode of our story, in China. Shanghai is not only home to 8 million people it also brings to mind Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson’s antics in the popular Shanghai Blank series of movies.
The teams are:
Abbie and Ryan – Team Choke Out
Amy and Daniel – Team Amy
Rob and Kelley – Team Truckasaurus
Caitlin and Brittany – Team Sporty
Natalie and Nadiya – Team Win N’s.
James and Abba – Team Mama Mia
Josh and Brent – Team Goat Boys
Trey and Lexi – Team Friday Night Lights (FNL)
Will and Gary – Team Tall & Tiny
James and Jaymes – Team Dong
“She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly!”
Abbie and Ryan, Team Choke Out will depart first at 5:35 am. They rip open their shiny yellow clue and see that they are on their way to Surabaya, Indonesia. Phil calls it the “City of Heroes.” Catchy nickname for a city! I hope they just don’t mean local heroes. That’d be super boring. Once they land they have to go over a fancy bridge, which is no doubt some sort of famous landmark, and make their way to the Alun Alun Stadium to find their next clue. Abbie notes that the winner of today’s leg will win the express pass. Ryan grunts, “YEAAAHHH!” He’s sweating behind his knee caps and other awkward places because he’s so excited/roided out. Team Choke Out brags about being in first place, but they get humble for long enough to take in how scary it is to be in first place, because they are an even bigger target to other teams than they were before.
“We’ve each been married THIS many times.”
Team Amy (with Daniel) leave second one minute later. Caitlin and Brittany, Team Sporty, leave third. Natalie and Nadiya the Twin N’s leave fourth. They remind us that they grew up in Sri Lanka therefore they are not afraid of third world countries and that beggars are their homeboys.
Rob and Kelley, Team Truckasaurus, are fifth to depart at 6:08 am. They reveal their story, Rob was Kelley’s husband’s best friend. The husband died in a terrible accident so Rob was there for Kelley and her son to rebuild their lives. Sounds like the perfect plot for a Hallmark original movie. Except this takes place in the monster truck circuit, so maybe it belongs on Spike TV.
“Remember when your husband died? That was so romantic.”
At the airport all of the teams seem to be getting on the same flight except for Rob and Kelley, who chose a different flight that has a four hour layover in Hong Kong. All the other teams have a layover in Jakarta. James and Abba, Team Mama Mia, manage to get standby tickets on an earlier flight to Surabaya.
I think the guy on the right choked to death on an egg.
