We saw some flying objects in the last leg of the
Road Trip. We also saw some fast decoding on a train. Unfortunately, for the
Montgomerys, it wasn't fast enough, and their road trip came to an end. Now the
Pollards, the Cootes, and the DiSalvatores remain as we press further west.
It's about the Road Trip, but the Cootes say that
it's all about the game now. The DiSalvatores are going through a rough patch
financially, so this will help.
But now it's about the trip, and today, it'll
take them through more of the American Southwest to...
You heard me. But first, Amy D breaks down about
the mess in her RV. On the other hand, the other Amie runs a tight ship.
Back to the diner, as we're served Creamed Quail
on Toast and Awesome Possum. Ew?
And believe it or not, it's not the cuisine that
has Amy upset, as she takes a break from the three men of her life, as she
agrees to ride with the Pollards for a moment. In exchange, Ron is going
into the DiSalvatore RV. As for the Cootes... they're just having a time
clearing the awning. No major damage, but not a good sign going into today's KoR
In the Pollard RV, Amy is "starting to get a
complex" as Amie drives into a junction and things fall into the sink. Over in
the DiSalvatore RV... or as they call it, the "Bro Bus", the men are being...
men. The families agree... it's time to kick some Cootey-booty.
Hundreds of people died to make this monument of
manhood's power over water. And speaking of, Silvio is thinking of apologizing
to Amy. Amy heads over to the RV... and Silvio apologizes. The rest of the
family are glad to see her, if only because they were hungry.
KING OF THE ROAD CHALLENGE: Dam Right
The families are going to make a hydroelectric
dam of their own to bar water from leaking all over the place. Hook the pipes to
power a turbine that will inflate a wacky waving inflatable tube flailing arm
Uncle Sam. Fastest time will be named King of the Road.
Pollards are first. They clock in at 20:33. Next
are the diSalvatores... And Silvio is making his own little contraption. And no,
it's not working. So they need to undo all of that. Obviously Silvio has never
heard of Ockham's Razor... But they finish... in 27:34.
That leaves the Cootes. They need to beat the
Pollards' time in order to avoid the bottom two. Their final time... 19:07! Once
again, the COOTES are Kings of the Road.
The good news... no one's getting eliminated.
We're going to VEGAS! There, the Pollards and the Cootes will compete to live
like a high roller, if only for one night.
LAS VEGAS, NV
Rio Hotel Theatre
Reno's on stage, which means that something's
about to go down. But first... Reno does a trick. The disappearing rabbit.
That... sucked. Now for some real magic from Penn & Teller! Keith and Ron are
called to the stage. Apparently it takes two Road Trippers to make one Teller.
And now, the problem begins... We have two lost
fathers. Apparently they're somewhere in Vegas.
REWARD CHALLENGE: Find My Father!
Simple, really... Find your father. You'll be
given clues as to where your father is, hotel by hotel. The fastest family is
going to get the hook up in a luxury hotel in Vegas. The slowest family... is
going to spend the night in the parking lot with the diSalvatores.
The first clue takes the families to the Circus
Circus, where a clown instructs them to pop balloons in search of letter tiles.
These letters will lead you to... EXCALIBUR!
At the Excalibur, the Cootes are first to arrive
as soon as traffic (and a Terry Fator sign) clears up. Once there, they have to
find letters in swords in the stone. They spell out... MANDALAY BAY!
The Cootes head out before the Pollards show
up... actually, JUST AS the Pollards show up. And they have a trump card.. They
passed the Mandalay Bay on they way up, so they know what they're looking for,
and they're on their way to close the gap. The dads are in room 25001 somewhere.
Who'll find them first? It's... THE POLLARDS! Victory is sweet indeed, but the
Pollards would rather win with class. To that end, they take the suite and the
$500 that comes with... and ask to share it with the other families. The Cootes
politely decline... just kidding, they rush off back to their RV crying.
Meanwhile, the diSalvatores come up to party with the Pollards.
Next week, it's the race to California, where the
road trip will be pared to two.
