As Kynt and Vyxsin get ready to climb, he notes that the straps look "kinda hot." He's just trying way too hard. He comments to the camera, as she gets ready to rappel, that she has "a military father," so she's done "camping and climbing" with him. He's sure it will be no problem. She makes it down the wall.
"Come on, baby, we can do this," Nate encourages Jen. They're still paddling the boat totally wrong, but at least now they're moving.
Kynt rappels, while Vyxsin yells at him not to look down.
Ron and Chris, then Nate and Jen, pull up their boats at the end of the Detour. Nate gets out of the boat in a way that rocks it back and forth in the ankle-deep water a little too much for our Miss Jen, so she sarcastically snots, "Very graceful, Nate." Okay, now she's just looking for stuff. These two teams are both looking for the plaza where they have to finish, and Nate brings Jen up a ladder as a "shortcut" at one point. That's pretty bold. Could end in disaster, that. Although maybe he's thinking of throwing her off of it, in which case he may be cruel, but at least he's thinking.
Vyxsin is the first to use the rope ladder to go up the wall. And then "Little pink kitten, you're at the top!" happens, and I sort of want to throw up, but okay.
Nate and Jen are ahead of Ron and Chris now, because they find the plaza and the clue that sends them to the pit stop. They're in first place, and they're getting the pit stop clue! Surely this time, they will finish first, as Jen wants so much! Phil explains that the pit stop clue sends them via taxi through the city to a big stone cross that overlooks the city. Phil stands majestically before the cross as he explains that this will be the pit stop. Ron and Chris are right on Nate and Jen's tails as both teams head away from the clue box.
Kynt scales the rope ladder, and Vyxsin calls him "a little Goth action hero." You know, I'm not sure it's cool to talk about your own classifications quite this much. Like, you're a more lovable stoner if you don't call yourself a stoner, and you're a more lovable Goth if you don't say "Goth" all the time. But...to each his or her own, as people with pink hair totally teach us all. He reaches the top, and they run off for the allegedly complex navigation part, with her cautioning that they haven't been great at finding stuff up to this point.
Nate and Jen are walking, and she spots the cross on the mountain, so at least they know where they're pointing. They get a cab, but as they're about to get in, the driver says, "Wait. Wait. Wait." Jen turns and looks at him. "Are you wet?" he asks. "Um, I'm not that wet," she says, but her hair is wet, and she is that wet, so the guy's like, "No dice, Dampy O'Dank," and Jen freaks the fuck out, just as you'd expect. "Oh my GOSH, are you SERIOUS?" she asks. He is serious. I'm sort of shocked she didn't try telling him they'd change their clothes or lay something over the seats. Just change your clothes, right? I don't get it. Meanwhile, Ron and Chris get into a cab and leave. Either they're more dry, or their driver is more mellow. Nate and Jen freak out even more when they see that Ron and Chris got a cab. Jen melts down right there on the street as they're trying to get a cab, and she's going back and forth between being angry and being...pitiful, alternately weeping and hollering. "Oh my God, NaaaaAAAAATE-uh!" She wails, "This is so unfair," and Nate has to hold it together now while she gets all upset. "No, it's not okay, our relationship SUCKS!" she says angrily. Whoa, whoa, what? The cab driver didn't refuse to take you because of your relationship, girly, so maybe argue about this later.
