Steve is doing the Road Block. As he takes off his shirt, we cut back to Carol and Brandy, and their messily-eating tortoise. "Does anyone have a napkin to wipe his mouth?" Carol wonders plaintively. Hurt by this aspersion cast against its table manners, the tortoise starts wandering even further afield, so they decide to switch tasks. Over to Ox Trot they go, making Steve and Allie the only team to successfully complete this Detour. As long as your definition of success does not include leaving with your luggage.
Steve flops over the side of the boat into the water. Despite his rather graceless dive, Allie tells us he's a great swimmer, habitually spending hours in the pool at the gym. After swimming out to the buoy he dives down, takes a long minute to free one of the bottles from the knotted rope over its neck, and surfaces. "Come back!" Allie calls, but first he takes the time to stuff the bottle down the front of his trunks. Which is probably how he swims at the gym anyway.
Meanwhile, Dan and Jordan are nearby in their own boat, opening their clue. "'Time to take a deep breath.' That's me," Jordan says. As he jumps in and strikes out for the buoy, Dan says he doesn't like swimming. "I mean, I can do it, and I'd be fine to do it, I just think Jordan's probably better at it. Confidence in my partner." Jordan dives, but can't get the bottle loose before he runs out of air. He comes up to breathe, and while Dan calls out encouragement, he snits, "You need to wait a second. It's really deep." "It says, 'time to take a deep breath,'" Dan chortles at us. Jordan narrates after the fact what we see, which is him going back down, getting the bottle free, and then dropping it. So now he has to go back down to get it, "actually on the bottom of the ocean floor," which is about four or five feet below the crate, as opposed to the Marianas Trench it might sound like if you weren't watching it at the same time. It's also fair to say that this is the closest they come to making a mistake this leg.
