We think this question refers both to Tremors and the opening of the TV series. There are a couple of ways to answer it. 1) With a movie reality joke: the graboid didn’t catch Val and Earl because they are the STARS! Or 2) with S. S. Wilson’s penchant for analysis: El Blanco is unique in the graboid pantheon, and is probably much faster than regular graboids. Furthermore a graboid’s speed of movement is very dependent on the soil it happens to be in. The unlucky hiker was probably on very loose easy-to-push-through dirt that gave El Blanco the edge in that case.
