Slight replay of the life jacket setback for Jim. The Poor S.W.A.T. really think this could get them eliminated. While this is going on, the other teams have reached the boats, which are really rickety and definitely made of tin. Akbar's Players have moved up to 3rd. Another water event poses a good scenario for Really Limited, and really this entire stage has been nothing but water competition and it's the only reason they're even in this thing still. The Moustaches have pulled out to a huge lead. We see just how far behind Moustaches everyone else is through a high crane shot. The rankings here are Gay Angst 2nd, battling with Really Limited in 3rd and Akbar's Players struggling in 4th. Jeff says it's annoying how good Gay Angst is on the water after they claimed to have no experience. They're able to easily keep up with the three above-average strength men. While we watch Akbar's Players struggle, Akbar says in TH it's like training camp where football players are cut from their teams and someone is sent to tell the players they need to turn in their playbooks. His team isn't ready to turn in their playbooks, he says.
The Moustaches reach land and get the next set of instructions: trek two miles West to reach Widow's Ledge. Really Limited is the second team there and Jeff begins to think their "limpy gallop" might be fast enough to survive this stage. Now on foot, Akbar's Players hit their stride and are able to pass up S.W.A.T. and Really Limited despite the limpy gallop. Jeff says Ike is like a busted giraffe out there. He even gives us a little imitation of what a busted giraffe looks like. Erik adds to the sentiment, saying they had to let everyone pass them up and it was really hard not to check out of it mentally at that point. We watch the three men continue on close together up a grassy hill in front of a beautiful backdrop of the Moroccan countryside. Is this the end of our favorite underdog?
Brief replay of Poor S.W.A.T. passing Really Limited and Ike saying he's been giving it his all. The challenge at Widow's Ledge involves teams rappelling into a cave below and squeezing through a very narrow passage into the wider mouth of the cave. Their instructions have symbols on them that they must match to one of five pots inside the cave, which will have instructions inside. Eric squeezes into the cave first for Moustaches and sees windows out of the rock with nice, picturesque views of hundred-foot drops onto jagged rocks. The rest of the gypsies follow in and John says in TH that it was uncomfortable and dusty in there. Gay Angst is close behind Moustaches. As they rappel to reach the mouth of the cave, AJ tells us they love rappelling now and it has become second-nature, though they were terrified of it at first. The Moustaches, of course, find their instructions before any other team even arrives at the challenge. The instructions are: "Find the wheat field, find the finish." From the cave, teams will follow a hand line that will guide them to the finish. Gay Angst arrives at the tight entrance as Moustaches leave. AJ says he's claustrophobic, but the competition doesn't afford the luxury of being afraid. Gay Angst is able to find their instructions quickly and spot The Moustaches swimming across the nearby river.
