Grab Your Partner, Do-Si-Do

"We really have to step up our game and show them how we play in Texas," says Lance of Lone Star Chuck Wagon. This week the race is in Austin, and Tyler is testing the teams on partnerships. Lone Star has chosen Military Moms as its partner, and the two are hoping to bring in big sales together.

Mismatched on Purpose

"You want to keep your friends close but maybe your enemies closer," Tyler advises the teams. The challenge has created some unusual pairings, with Let There Be Bacon choosing to partner with Middle Feast. "I don't think we'll be stepping on each other's toes," says Matt, taking what Tyler said to heart.

Hoping Partnering Will Pay Off

Tyler calls with a Speed Bump, moving all the trucks to a Match.com dating event. This partnership could prove to be very fruitful, since the diners have been given tokens worth $25 to use on purchases. "We really need to make money," says Matt, whose team has experienced the same slow sales as the others.
