After facing some more challenging missions, well kinda challenging, Team America ended up with a gimme $5K in its lap this week when viewers sent them a new task.

Derrick received word on Friday night that America had assigned them a mission to spot a fictional mouse and keep the rest of the House, three other people, awake overnight in hunt of the interloping rodent.

The details given to Derrick and relayed to Frankie explained they couldn’t let anyone fall asleep before 6AM or they’d “risk” failing the mission, so no not really. They were also told that they could start it whenever they wanted as long as they reached the 6AM marker. Sheesh.

After HGs were allowed to sleep until late afternoon they started discussing staying up overnight. Bingo. Easy peasy $5K. Derrick and Frankie decide to wait until 3AM to give it a go which means they just have to keep eyes open for 3 hours. Yeah.

Flashback to 3:22AM BBT 9/7 as Frankie lets out a shriek and the mission is underway. HGs suggest it’s a mouse or a rat. Cody freaks out and jumps up on the bar stools as he’s terrified of rats. Of course he is.

HGs make their own mouse traps and production even plays along when they go in to DR and ask for real traps. Derrick even gets back out the headlamps they used during the Saboteur/Screw-Zach mission from the other week.

Caleb is determined to catch the mouse and stays on the hunt with Derrick. Victoria starts to fall asleep but Derrick pulls her back to the task and she returns to hang out in the kitchen.

6AM BBT rolls around as Frankie and Cody play pool while Derrick, Caleb, and Victoria all head in to the DR together to record a segment on their efforts. And just like that the mission is over and I’m not really sure what they did, but the money is theirs on this one and CBS has a new segment to run on Tuesday.
