Meanwhile, Jessica and Idries are dealing with both the letdown of struggling with sandcastles after watching their partners skydive and a ukulele player who is now singing at them while they try to work. Turns out the Polynesian sand isn't ideal for building sandcastles, as Jamil keeps dumping out stumpy piles that quickly collapse. Let's hope the human beings he delivers hold together better. Connor's dad Dave runs to the opposite end of the castle field and begins his search among what he thinks are the more "pristine" castles. Pam and Winnie show up and Pam soon learns that "rebuilding these sons of bitches is hard." Some of these teams are not going to last very long, I'm thinking.
Anthony's skydive begins. Caroline and her jump partner follow, tumbling madly while she screams. She interviews that she's actually a descendant of Daniel Boone, thus her adventurous "pioneer spirit." And we all know how famous Daniel Boone was for skydiving. Or was that Davy Crockett? I always get those two confused. Much like I'm sure I'll be getting Caroline and Jennifer confused for several episodes.
Unsurprisingly, the folks on the beach are having less fun in the sun. Idries even tells Jamil to shut up at one point. "That's our code word for 'I love you,'" Jamil explains, apparently not ready to put their full dysfunction on display yet.
Chuck & Wynona hit the beach, where he quickly finds a woman splitting coconuts under a thatched canopy and asks her for the clue. He interviews about how being a shift manager at Wal-Mart allows him to communicate well with people from all walks of life. Alas, he's currently bringing those skills to bear on someone who A) does not speak English and B) has nothing whatsoever to do with the race. The partners of the racers already doing the sandcastle task snicker at Chuck from afar for a bit, until he belatedly spots the bright red-and-yellow clues across the beach and they run over to join the other racers. Because Chuck jumped out of the helicopter, this task goes to Wynona. "This is when the game levels up," Winnie remarks cattily to John, whatever that means. As Wynona gets to work, she says she always wanted to be on the beach, but not like this. "Where are my kids when I need 'em?" I immediately make the sign of the evil eye to ward off another Family Edition.
During Matt's skydive, he interviews about how he always wanted to do this but never got the opportunity or even been out of the country before. Max is soon on his way down as well.
