M. Giant: A | Grade It Now!
Those Who Red the Clue and Those Who Blue It
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

Only six teams left. It would have been five, but someone finally remembered that non-elimination legs are supposed to happen.

A cymbal crash drops us smack into New Delhi again, specifically Baha'i House. "Once a lavish home for a wealthy businessman, it's now the national headquarters of the Baha'i faith," Phil informs us. "And it's now the sixth Pit Stop in a race around the world." The Siblings, Nick and Starr, are going to be leaving first, at 8:55 a.m., since they checked in at 8:55 p.m. at the end of the previous leg. I had assumed it was later than that, but then I always do. It's a sunny morning as they stand out on the lawn to rip their clue, and Starr's wearing her hair down for the first time since, like, the opening credits. Nick's also got a little extra hair-shelf going on in front. Perhaps this is what happens when people get to leave for the day at a decent hour.

For once they're not headed to the airport, probably because the Amazing Yellow Line has checked into a rehab facility for exhaustion and dehydration. Phil says that the teams have to "make their way through the congested streets of Delhi" to Deshbandu Apartments, which is a sprawling complex of multiple buildings with a "park" in the middle of it. It's a park in the Delhi sense, meaning that it's more like a bare -- if brightly colored for some reason -- courtyard, but whatever. At least there's a clue box waiting there for them. Nick and Starr interview that other teams might think they're sneaky or something, but, as they put it, "We're just playing a game." I don't know why they're even worried about it; nobody else has really even noticed, except Kelly and Christy, whom everyone else assumes are idiots. I think the Siblings are giving the other teams a little too much credit. And given that only one other team has won so much as a single leg of this entire season to date, that seems like it would be hard to do. In the cab, Nick cops to a strategy he calls "little white lies." And again, I really don't think anyone has noticed who isn't either behind a camera or constantly reading clues wrong.

Kelly and Christy are leaving at 9:02, and they've both got their hair down. Does Baha'i House have a hair salon in it or something? All this tonsorial grandeur this late in the race is a little off-putting. As they head out, Christy interviews that they've "migrated from the back of the pack to the front of the pack." I wouldn't call it a "migration" so much as a "fluke." In the cab, Christy is already putting her hair up. "I don't think that in India, hair down is gonna work," she says. Well, that didn't last long. But then again, neither will their high ranking.
