So what are we playing for? Well, the reward is a famous Mayan discovery -- chocolate. (Incidentally, they weren't kidding about lots of people being beat-up from the ball -- you can see a big scrape along Danni's jaw here, too.) And the chocolate comes with a zipline tour of the jungle. I strongly recommend not eating your chocolate before your death-defying, stomach-into-your-throat zipline experience. Just saying. Nakum sits out Judd, which my fingers actually resist typing, so convinced are they that this should be followed by "Don't you mean Lydia?"
Amy is Yaxha's facilitator/wrapper/mummification coordinator, and Jamie is Nakum's. Ready? Go. Steph and Brandon are the first to wrap themselves. Steph moves ahead to Lydia, and then Brandon moves on to Gary. Steph and Lydia have a hard time cooperating, despite how bossy Steph is being. Hard to believe. I think it's safe to say, over on the Yaxha side of things, that this is the closest that the front of Gary has come to the back of another dude since his football days. One thing that's interesting is that Steph and Lydia tie themselves together face-to-face, while Gary and Brandon wind up one behind the other, which makes it much, much easier for the guys to walk together to the next pole. Gary, Brandon, and Bobby Jon are now wrapping in one big homoerotic clump of spinning and rubbing and whatnot. They initially try to wrap Bobby Jon in so that he's front of Brandon, the three of them still lined up like they're paddling a canoe. But that arrangement falls apart a little, while over at Nakum, Lydia and Steph start to wrap Rafe up with them. Yaxha degenerates from its organized arrangement into a big, random amoeba shape as they try to wrap in Danni.
Steph fits in quite a palming of Rafe's ass as they, along with Lydia, continue to work around the pole. When that's done, they start to wrap in Cindy. It's close to a tie as the teams approach the end of the wrapping phase. Nakum actually takes a slight lead, and now it's time for both teams to start unwinding. Jamie runs to the mat, since his role is over. Then Amy finishes and heads for the mat, and Yaxha starts unwinding. As they unwind, it looks like maybe Nakum suffers slightly from the fact that their wrapping was very haphazard, and they seem to have a lot of trouble moving as a group. I think their arrangement of bodies and material is just a lot more random, and Yaxha's is slightly more ordered. Danni is the first person to be freed from the winding, and Yaxha takes the lead, but Cindy for Nakum is close behind. The climactic moment comes when serious problems befall Nakum as the clump of Steph, Rafe, and Lydia -- none of them brilliantly coordinated people -- falls over while trying to unwind. And that is not good. That will seriously cost you some time. Bobby Jon escapes for Yaxha. Gary and Brandon -- still lashed together simply, front-to-back, and therefore easily able to spin together -- make quick work of the end of Yaxha's unwinding, while Nakum still can't get up off the ground. Rafe gets out, but Brandon finishes up while Steph and Lydia are still unwinding, so the victory, chocolate, and zipline will be going to Yaxha. Nakum looks miserable as Jeff sends Yaxha directly off to their reward. Then, he insults Nakum a bit in his usual "Well, you sucked on that one, didn't you?" kind of supportive way, and he sends them back to camp. Losers!
