Neighborhood Challenge #2: In "Nosey Neighbor", each family is assigned another family's home and two members of each family have to search through the given house. To begin, when they reach the house's porch, they will find a basket containing a walkie-talkie and a scrapbook that has pictures of five objects in it. While the Schindlers only have to find four of their five objects inside their assigned house, the other families have to find all five. The first family to find their objects and contact Matt Rogers via their walkie-talkie wins. Here are the house assignments:

Nelson: Schindler
Schindler: Bussiere
Bussiere: Nelson
Johnston: Mullennix
Mullennix: Southey
Southey: Upshaw
Upshaw: Johnston

The winners are...

...boy, did they need to win this one- the Mullennixes! They also get a new kitchen installed into their house.
