From the starting line, Phil: You'll be leaving in a race around the world. Eight pitstops are elimination points. If you're last arriving, you'll be eliminated. Your first clue is on your luggage. First team to cross the finish line after 11 legs wins $1 million.

All: YAY!

Phil: Everybody ready? The world is waiting for you. Good luck. Travel safe. GO!!!!

CLUE: Shannon, Ireland.

Single file, trying to leave the Playboy Mansion.
Horns blaring.
Racers impatient.
Phil looking on, bemused.
Lots of excitement as the single file line finally moves.

CREDITS ROLL.

I was wondering about that. Only one--maybe two--permits, but more than one HB team. I wonder if they consolidated, and if so, I wonder if the teams met each other before the race.

Usually, they'll say what flights are used for the first leg of the race... This time, LAX to Shannon, Ireland. Why don't they give out the airlines so we know what strategy is like? Everyone wants British Airways, but what's another flight option?

As usual, no commercial after the BOMP.

At least one team is lost.
Az/Hend already confused. They turn left at Sunset Bl.
Other teams turn right.
Staella snapping at Ari.
Lorena brags that they're from LA. For all the city to hear.
At least one racer is positive they were supposed to turn LEFT. Many went right.
First to 405, several teams in rapid sequence. Several teams are lost, asking directions.
Grandpa/Pilot turn around.
Other teams are shocked that they're turning.
Getting directions, Hend discovers they went the wrong way.
British Airways has a few seats, but not enough for all the teams. (The usual.)
What's funny is watching teams in the lead think they're lost.   
First to the airport: Lorena/Jason. BA.
Several teams board Az/Hend's van at the airpark, just as

Shana/Jennifer 2nd on BA.
Kate/Pat 3rd on BA.
Nathan/Jennifer ... on BA.
Teams running ... clamoring to get to the counter ...
Mariana/Julia, BA.
Az/Hend, nervous, as they are told the tix are running out.
SORRY, says the airline agent. No dice.
Az/Hend and the other teams miss the BA flight.

COMMERCIAL.

The other teams head to Aer Lingus to get to Ireland, but they're already behind the 8 ball. AzHend and Ronald/Chrstina are working together.

Air Lingis flight is first to Ireland, as the British Airways flight is delayed on the tarmac.

Hend conf: We're overachievers. We don't like to lose.

The BA teams gloat at having a 45 minute head start, as their plane departs.
Someone lets Az/Hend borrow a laptop.
Ronald/Christina seem to have an informal alliance with them. They make reservations for a taxi before taking their flight to Britain.
The BA flight goes through London. Aer Lingus, departing later, goes through Dublin.

Teams arrive in Dublin. Shocker! It's raining. Taxis for everyone. 


Scene: Ferry to Innes Moor island.
Phil: They have to find this temple, the smallest church in the world, and sign up for ferries leaving 8 am, 8:30, 9:30.

Apparently the "early" flight has less than the anticipated 45 minute head start, likely due to disparate routes.


First to the Ferry: Az/Hend.
Second to Ferry: Ronald/Christina.
Already: Taxi drama.
"You took our taxi."
"No."
 

Okay, this "Love letter to the planet, can't hopskotch around it" is making me dislike ... a ... minister.

Nathan and Jennifer are already fighting. He calls her the worst person he's ever seen at this. It sets her off. She's ready to take him out.
