Derek and Jess hit the finish line first, and they're exhausted. But they get to spend Midnight at the Oasis. Skip and Theresa are in second place. Skip is sprinting up the hill with the crate and he's pissed that Theresa can't keep up. She is carrying his pack, though. Also, she's not a tomboy. Skip really is a jerk. And might be taking performance-enhancing drugs. At least I hope he's not naturally such a dillweed. There's no one close behind them, and they know this because they could see all the other couples in their canoes. And they know they're not in first for the same reason. So why run? Skip. Jerk.
Mike and Samantha end up third despite having to stop off at the courthouse to finalize their custody agreement. Samantha is trying to be nicer as they walk toward the finish line, and she says afterwards that it was "a true test" for them. Yes, a true test of your days-old relationship. There's nothing to test! You barely know one another! Erica and Derek are fourth and Jason and Jessica are fifth. Steele and Kym managed to pass two other couples in the canoes, but then Ben and Brandee pass them on the run to the finish line. And then Heather and Adam are in last place. Adam blames his poor rowing skills. Heather just hopes that Miles will pick her so they can get back together.
Jess and Derek enjoy their Oasis. They're boring. Meanwhile, Steele and Kym are talking about how hard they worked for their finish today. Kym is like, "We're awesome! We should stick together!" Steele is like, "Whoa, there. Let's not get ahead of ourselves." Steele admits in an interview that his longest relationship was three to four months (was it three or four? Does he know?) and he likes Kym but would like to explore other options. What options? Who else is there?
Theresa and Skip are hanging out in their cabin as Theresa does something with her hair extensions. Wait, she has hair extensions? IN the jungle? She's awful. She and Skip are the Two A-Holes skit from SNL. Skip gives some interview about how he doesn't have to say how he feels about Theresa because she just knows because they're getting to know each other? I don't know. I'm too distracted by the fact that he's getting into the shower with her so I guess that what he means by getting to know each other.
Heather confides in Kym that she hopes to get back with Miles, but she doesn't know how he's feeling. Are they not allowed to talk to other people? Why not just ask him? Kym thinks she and Steele are a match made in heaven and hopes Steele sees it. What is it about Steele that people just fall in love with him? I mean, he's good-looking, but he's kind of dumb. He's not exactly Mr. Sparkling Wit over there. Steele has his eye on Erica, but admits that he likes Kym too.
