Vanessa and Steele start bickering over which direction to go. Vanessa is right, because she thinks they should go in the direction that Mike and Samantha just came from, since they have three tethers already, so obviously there are some that way. Steele goes a different way, and I'm sorry, but these harnesses that everyone is wearing just make the men's packages stick out, and then the camera is at crotch-level, and that can't be an accident, so all I can do is look at Steele's package. I don't want to! Seriously! I'm not a pervert.
Derek and Jessica come to a bridge that is straight-up Indiana Jones style. It's just ropes and boards and half of the boards are broken and the rope is frayed. I bet they will fall! Except they won't, because that rope was made by a couple of PAs last night over beers. Actually, they might fall, now that I think about it. Anyway, Derek is afraid of heights, but they find a tether, so it's all good. Don't forget, they are tied together. So Jessica is in front, and she is booking across the bridge. She interviews that if Derek acts like a girl, she will want nothing to do with him. Oh, for Christ's sake. Aren't we past that sort of bullshit, as a nation? Anyway, Derek busts through one of the boards a little bit, but HE'S WEARING A HARNESS. So he falls like an inch.
So then he recovers very easily and Jessica's totally turned off, and she's terrible, but he's not that great. Heather and Miles, the new wonder couple, run through the bat cave and miss the tether. They figure out that there was probably one there, so they go back and I think they miss it again? The editing makes it tough to tell. Except when they go back, there is only one tether left, and they still miss it. So I'm guessing they don't come in first. Sorry, wonder couple!
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.
