In last night episode of The Office, you might have caught Randall Park as Asian Jim Halpert on the opening skit of The Office. Dwight is perplexed out of his mind when Pam and Jim have their actor friend Steve pretend to be Jim for the morning. The Asian man sitting at the desk next to him dresses like Jim, but is clearly an imposter. The man greets Dwight and assures Dwight that he is in fact Jim Halpert. Dwight calmly tells him that he can’t be Jim; Jim’s not Asian. The imposter smiles and compliments Dwight on not seeing race. Dwight grows more and more confused as Asian Jim talks about work – and even enters Jim’s voicemail password. In interview, Pam reveals that Steve (aka Asian Jim) is an actor friend of hers and Jim’s. When Dwight sees Pam and Asian Jim exchange a casual kiss, he begins to panic. He hastily picks up a framed photo from the desk to see the real Jim, only to see a family photo of Pam, Asian Jim, and two Asian American kids. It’s a prank for the ages, courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Halpert and their buddy Steve.

Following instructions Tyler gave in Cleveland, the final two teams (Seoul Sausage and Nonna’s Kitchenette) cruise into Boston on the first leg of their “multi-city race to the finish.” In the middle of their shift, Tyler calls and tells the teams they must add a true blue New England lobster dish to their menu. Seoul Sausage’s finale strategy is straightforward: “Basically we’re going to keep the same menu,” Chris explains. “Why fix something that’s not broken?” The guys serve their crowd-pleasing kimchi rice balls plus cheesy tater tots, burgers and more. Both teams start selling immediately and draw extra-long lines of customers in no time. Two authentic lobstermen taste the dishes and award the winner a huge cash advantage and a head start … to Portland, Maine (108 miles north), where the teams will sell next. Though Captain Clark Sandler appreciates the flavor of Seoul Sausage’s lobster roll, he deems Nonna’s Kitchenette’s lobster cake to be the best dish of the day. Tyler grants them a $500 prize and the right to immediately advance to the next city, Portland, Maine. The losing team stays behind and “helps” a local restaurant. They must shuck nearly 600 pounds of clams before they can drive to the second city. When Seoul Sausage arrives in Portland, the team tracks down Nonna’s Kitchenette and parks near them. “We always do well against another truck when we’re right next to each other,” Yong explains, “so this is right up our alley.” On Sunday, the teams sell head to head in Portland, but Tyler calls again and sends them to their third and final destination: Lubec, Maine. Since Lubec is a small town with just 1600 residents, Tyler directs them to Water Street and enforces a price cap of only $2 to ensure that the teams will find business. Seoul Sausage and Nonna’s Kitchenette are able to sell for just a few hours in Lubec, but it’s those final sales that will ultimately determine the winner of the competition.
Finally, Tyler gathers the teams at the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse (the easternmost point of the United States) and collects their cash boxes. When the teams arrive, Tyler counts their money in front of them … and the winner drives away in their new food truck, along with $50,000 to get their business started. The group takes a few moments to reflect on the race before finding out who has won. Tyler announces that after a 3,559-mile journey across 15 states, Seoul Sausage has won the keys to their dream food truck and $50,000 to start their business. Ringing up $6,673, the guys outsell Nonna’s by just $103 dollars. “I don’t know how to react right now,” Chris says. “We just won The Great Food Truck Race. This was huge.”
