Soon, one of Team Fail's barrels rolls away and knocks half the team onto the ground, forcing them all to go back to the start. Dan takes a while to make it back, as he has been grievously wounded by hitting his hand on the plank, much to Probst's delight. Team Success continues to make its way to the end as Brenda tries to basically roll a barrel across the sand like she's in a log-rolling contest or something. "That'll work. For a minute," Probst scoffs. "Is this were life or death, you'd be dead," he then informs Team Fail, just to be an extra asshole. Jud is the first to reach the platform and so excited about it that he jumps off the plank and nearly causes the rest of his team to fall. But they stay up and soon the rest of the team join Jud on the finish platform and celebrate their victory. Ben is a giant tool, so he does a backflip off a barrel and onto the sand just to get attention. It works, as Probst singles him out for his "ceremonial loser dismount." Wow, Probst hates these people so very much. He congratulates Team Win on their victory and then informs them that the helicopter flying overhead is there to take them to their doom. I mean "active volcano reward." NaOnka says that she never thought she'd have a passport, let alone ride in a helicopter. Really? Is the idea of visiting another country still that exotic to people? I mean, she lived in Iowa, and that's probably scarier and more foreign than any other country.
And so, the winning team helicopters to the volcano and get a birds-eye view of its insides before they're let out on the surface, which is black and desolate. Jane describes it as "like walking on the moon" and says they could actually feel the heat of the volcano in their feet as they walked. Again, this does not seem like fun to me. They make their way to the "volcano boarding" area, where they put on big orange jumpsuits and sit on what are basically planks of wood with a string attached to help them hold on and steer. They are able to resist the urge to throw the volcano boards on top of a fire to protect it and ride them down the side of the hill instead. Of course, Jud crashes spectacularly on his sled. NaOnka and the other Kelly follow, and then it's Jane's turn. She reminds us that she might be older than everyone, but she's not scared. She slides down and pronounces it "fun as crap!" Yes, crap is fun, isn't it, Jane? With that, they are done volcano boarding and it's time to eat. As they walk towards the dinner table, Jud wonders how things are back at camp right now.
