Jennifer and Jarrett were both trying for the load of duct tape art work. Jessica wanted a piece of the action too. Jarrett was aggressive at the start with his pricing and scared both girls off the load. Dusty was messing with Jarret and dropping the price by a little, which ended up back-firing and stuck Dusty with the load when Jarrett wouldn’t go for the win.

Jennifer and Jessica right away go for bidding on shipping the American Strongman weights for the competition. The load is 15,000 pounds but everyone jumps in on the transport. Marc finally wins it, just beating Jessica by a little bit. Marc’s truck ends up being too big to get into the pick-up site so he rents a smaller truck to position his trailer.

Some animatronic hillbillies are up for a one-day shipment to a fair. Jennifer recognizes these as the same ones Roy once hauled. She bids for an wins them, and can even squeeze them into her trailer. She goes to pick them up, video tapes how they operate and gets the help to load them. It doesn’t seem like the seller was prepared to load them or had them ready, but Jenn got them working and solved a few problems along the way. She did deliver them to the event, even with possibly a broken finger on a hillbilly. In Roy’s honor, she did well.
