Somehow Dan and Jordan are in first place, and the latter is doing this one for the brothers, while Louie's doing it for the detectives. "I'm gonna fricking pee myself," Jordan says has he gets into his harness at the mouth of the hole. He interviews that Dan has done three Road Blocks in comparison to his one, so he was gung-ho to do this. He sits on the edge of the airshaft -- which is illuminated with light cords running down each of the four corners -- and a bespectacled greybeard who will apparently be joining him on the ride down assures him, "No problem, no problem." Which will turn out to be true, as the racers who have to "rappel" won't actually be called upon to do anything other than not flip shit. They start getting lowered down. "I am rappelling down a freaking wine cellar right now," Jordan marvels. Please see previous definition of "rappelling."
Steve and Allie arrive belatedly in third place. "Steve, this is your kind of place," Dan greets them. Someone already has a reputation as a tippler, it seems. He'll be doing this one. Jordan has just reached the bottom, and now has to begin his search. This is no small task, because the catacombs are lined with champagne racks shaped like inverted Vs. Each rack contains sixty bottles on a side, and they have two sides, and the racks are lined up in pairs. So that's 240 bottles per row, and these rows stretch down the curved hallway as far as the camera can see, with side hallways branching off. It's like if Neo said in The Matrix, "We need champagne. Lots of champagne." "Okay, this is a little bit trickier than I thought," Jordan confesses as he snoops among the bottles.
Louie is now getting lowered into the hole with a different guide. Obviously, with the airshaft being so narrow and there being only one of them, it limits this activity to one team at a time. It effectively creates, no pun intended, a bottleneck. Down below, Jordan's search continues, as he sticks his head under and inside the racks. "It's much harder down here than you would think," he says. Oh, don't worry, Jordan, I think it would be hard.
