If Jake and his mates were indeed "culture jamming" this race - it was a total fail.

Yes, it occurred to me that given Jake's history, maybe he set this whole thing up, and Harry, Jane, and even grandma were pre-scripted to blowup the race. In other words, our buddy rockDAWG was Punk'd.

If they actully DID that - not saying they did - I would 100% support them being thrown right off the boat in mid ocean with raw steak tied to them.
