Speaking of the pit stop, Chip and Kim are now getting out of their taxi, which I guess means that they passed Alison and Donny, which is kind of weird. Kami/Karli is there also. Phil is standing on the mat in his stunning blue shirt, accompanied by a woman whose sash informs us that she is Miss Uruguay. Chip and Kim run up to the mat, and she welcomes them to Punta del Este. Phil says, "Chip and Kim, you're the first team to arrive." They look really happy, until he says, "However." He goes on: "You did not pick up a route marker, and you must go back and get it before you can check in." Their faces drop. Chip says that they realized they must have missed the route marker for the detour, and that they were very unhappy. They take off.
Kami and Karli are on the mat, and Phil is telling them the same thing. They're second to get there, but they also missed a clue. I'm sure it's not the first time. "Do we need to go back and do that?" KarliKami says, stricken. "You must go back and get it before you can check in." Cut to KamiKarli and KarliKami, running at full speed down the road. In their cab, they note that they have to go back to the hotel, so it's not like they don't know what they missed, either. They keep saying "Andale" to their driver, which...bugs. In the Chip and Kim cab, Chip says that for them to survive would be "a miracle."
Commercials. Okay, I admit that the one with the guy doing the homemade computer upgrades in his office is funny. Especially that girl whose monitor keeps sinking.
In the Chip and Kim cab, he says that the only chance they have is if there's somebody who is "equally as..." She finishes the sentence: "Lame as us." Heh. Karli tells Kami (because she calls her "Kami," so I have a fighting chance) that they're "not out of it yet."
We go on a quick tour to catch up with several teams. Brandon zips into the pool as Nicole loudly praises his butt, and they grab a taxi. Alison and Donny arrive at the pit stop. They run inside. Colin screams encouragement to Christie as she completes the pool drop. They read the clue and go.
At the pit stop, Alison and Donny land on the mat. Phil tells them they're team number one. Eeeeevil triumphs yet again. As if that weren't enough, they've won a vacation. Booooo. Suck! Why couldn't they get cheap digital cameras? She interviews that she wants to work out a healthy relationship with him, instead of one that's so "dysfunctional." Yeah, I think television appearances are actually a common therapeutic recommendation for that purpose. It's right after "Take the time to say something kind to each other every day," and right before "Embrace infidelity."
