In Photo Cut Out, teams have to get a camera and life size cut outs of sumo wrestlers and get ten groups of 3 locals to take their picture in the cut out. Then they must eat the cut out. Team Boy Guns opt for sushi because they love bingo and sushi.
Team Second Chance finally finishes and Vanessa consoles herself by fixing her fake eyelashes in the cab ride to the detour.
Team Blowup goes for Sumo. Team Reality goes for Sushi. Team Blowup is going for blowup as Dave screams at Rachel for unzipping his bag. She said it wasn’t her. I bet it was that damn paper clip from Windows 7! Also we found out Rachel can’t say the word “bag” right. She says baig. That is not correct. No wonder he yells at her so much.
Team Boy Guns arrive at the sushi place, and apparently cocaine den. The people there go NUTS when they arrive.
Team Blowup gets their camera and start trying to get pictures with the cutout. Dave tells her to use her flowery personality to convince people. They realize that young people are the way to go and get their first set. Rachel tells Dave he needs to work on his charisma. They are quit a pair.
Team Boy Guns is slowly figuring out the task just as Reality arrives to more cheers at the sushi cocaine palace. Meanwhile Team Second Chance’s cab driver, who is wearing a tux for some reason, may be lost.
“Now let’s see here. Where is my wedding?”
Blowup is hustling to get people. They must be awful because the people don’t even need to pay for anything. They literally need people to stand there for five seconds and still everyone is saying no. Then they find their groove and finish the task! They’re in first place and must head to Osaka Castle for the pit stop for this leg of the race! The last team to check in here WILL be eliminated.
Fran wonders if it’s Phil’s job to carry the mat from pit stop to pit stop. That will be our first questions when we see him again. The second will be if he minds if we name our baby after him, Phil Shark-Tooth-Necklace Franberry.
Team Boy Guns get sushi bingo, pound all the sushi they need to eat and more and head out leaving Reality behind. Team Second Chance arrives at Sushi just in time for Reality Rachel’s multi-weekly cry and breakdown.
“I just can’t handle fish that’s not cooked right now!”
And Blowup is team number one! Phil tells them that they tie the record for the most wins (7). They win a trip to New Zealand and Phil reminds them that it’s his homeland. I wonder if they get to go on the “Phil’s Old Stomping Grounds” tour. Also there are two Japanese punk kids on the mat with Phil for some reason.
Team Reality gets sushi bingo and are on their way leaving Team Second Chance behind in last place. In the cab Reality Rachel freaks out about getting to the pit stop in time and we have never wanted a team to lose more in our lives. Rachel works up her AR Emmy winning moment, but I don’t think she realizes she will never be sharing the Emmy stage with Bertram and Phil.
The Japanese Jimmy Kimmel goes nuts!
Second Chance gets sushi bingo and gets in the cab, which for some reason has a clothes line of baby clothes hanging in the trunk. Huh? Stop racing and call the police!
Bags on the left, crib on the right.
Boy Guns gets lost and Team Reality arrives and they are all lost together. Hot on their heels is Second Chance! We say “hot”
because the editors made it seem that way. It may not be the truth.
