“Dude this is going to take forever,” Dusty says while Ryan waits for milk to curdle at a cheese-making station. “This mule thing might not be a bad idea. All we’re doing is saddling a mule and riding it down.” Ryan remains calm and tells the cameras, “Right now we’re dealing with Dusty’s madness of thinking we should switch and not knowing if this is going to work out. I feel like it’s smarter just to stay.”

In another clip, teams look thrilled by Ryan and Dusty’s struggle. “I’m hoping that they are just in their heads right now,” says Cayla Platt while Kim Holderness throws her head back laughing. Finally, we see the duo looking frazzled as they jump onto their transportation device while Dusty yells, “Punch it!” and host Phil Keoghan teases the teammates “scramble to catch up.”
