On tonight’s episode of “Giuliana & Bill,” this adorable celebrity couple who have experienced their share of speed bumps along their road to having a child, now have the reward of a beautiful son named Edward Duke Rancic.
As the episode opens, the Rancics are in Chicago with Duke. Giuliana announces that it is time for them to take a vacation. So, the Rancics decide it is also time for the next Rancic challenge. While meeting with their friends Dave and Lauren, for dinner at RPM Italian, they discuss having another baby, but not until they officially move to Chicago. Then Bill asks them to come to Mexico with them for the next Rancic challenge. This challenge will include the couple’s kids.
As Giuliana leaves to do a news segment, Bill brings the baby to his mother’s house to pick up suitcases for the trip. Bill calls her to ask if she thinks she is Madonna bringing so much stuff on the trip? Bill does not want to get hung up in customs, especially while they have the baby with them.
They arrive at Playa Del Carmen at the resort of Mayakoba, they take a boat to their suite that is on a lagoon. As the rest of the group arrives, they are surrounded by friends and their children. Each couple is given a different set of shirts in bright colors. One of the couples has no children yet, and this could make or break their choice to have children. The competitive spirit is alive as the guys try to make side bets for the different events.
The first event is for the fathers swimming while pulling a rubber boat holding their child. Bill wins the first event for the blue team with two points and the yellow team came in second with one point.
While sitting around the pool, the women strike a deal with the guys to give them spa time, while the guys stay with the kids. In return, the guys can play golf and the women will stay with the kids then. As the women talk, they all discuss having more kids. Giuliana knows that they cannot have another child until they move to Chicago, and Bill will not even discuss it until they move. At the golf course, the guys have the kids with them and Duke falls fast asleep.
On the next day, the second part of the challenge begins. One parent has to hold their child, while they toss a water balloon back and forth. With each toss, they must move one step away from each other. The children do not all cooperate as screaming and crying are the mode of the day, but the green team wins, in spite of the kids.
Next challenge, the teams had to bury one adult member of the team in the sand. The Rancics came in third this time, but are still alive. The final round will be held later that day. But first, Giuliana & Bill babysit for their friend’s two girls, Mason and Kendall.
For the final challenge, they have a taco eating contest. In seven minutes, the team who ate the most will be the winner. The tacos are truly Mexican and very spicy. Dave and Lauren won that part and tied with the Rancic team. Each couple will hold the trophy for six months until the next challenge.
While they are alone, G&B talk about having another baby. After having so much fun with their friend’s girls, she is ready, but Bill still requires convincing. They decide to go to Denver and find out what their options are and more of the story will unfold on the next episode of “Giuliana & Bill.”
