Peter (ugly surfer dude) and Jess are crossing the rope bridge. Jess is scared. Peter loves it. They are a bad match. Ben and Brandee backtrack to the bat cave and find a tether. There are two left when they get there, so the editing is all messed up. Skip and Theresa (who and WHO?) are getting along well. That's nice for them. I have no idea who they are. Heather and Miles get a really short tether before crossing the scary rope bridge, so they are like on top of each other. Heather is a little freaked out, and Miles kindly talks her through it, and they are totally GETTING MARRIED, YOU GUYS! And their wedding will be on a rope bridge.
Peter and nervous Jess are crossing a metal bridge and he starts jumping up and down to make the whole thing shake. So they fight about that. He's no Miles, I'll tell you that. A bunch of couples have all six tethers and are heading for the finish line. Who will get there first? It's Adam (bad facial hair) and Kym! They get to sleep at the Oasis and will get a helicopter ride to have a lunch with spectacular views. Peter and Jess are second, Ben and Brandee are third, Skip and Theresa are fourth, and Mike and Samantha are fifth.
Vanessa and Steele are bickering and lost. And they're tied together. Vanessa chooses to see the tethers as a metaphor for their relationship or some bullshit. Jason and Erica are also not doing well. Jason won't stop talking. He's babbling about tetherball and I get why that would be annoying when she's trying to think and concentrate one where they're going. So she yells at him to shut up and they're pretty much done. Luckily, they get to the finish line sixth.
Miles and Heather's love does not prevail, as they find the tether in the bat cave on their FOURTH pass, and end up seventh. Scaredy cat Derek and bitchy Jessica don't see a tether right in front of their faces for the longest time, but finally do see it. Steele and Vanessa have all theirs too, and it's a footrace. Steele pretty much throws Vanessa across the finish line, so they are eighth and Derek and Jessica are last. Jessica thinks that she still has connections to make, so she doesn't want to leave. She better blow someone behind a bush or something, because she's on the way out. Come on, you know she thought about it. What, I'm the weirdo now?
