Eric and Pink get their clue at the rickshaw.
The BQs, Charla and Mirna, and Danny and Oswald take the elevator up together. At the top, Oswald rushes out and gets to the Yield box first, which...I'm not sure how that goes with the BQs having the first number from downstairs. It looks like there are new numbers at the top of the elevator, which makes no sense to me. Why wouldn't you just have the numbers at the top be the numbers for the task and the numbers for the Yield? Why are the numbers from downstairs the ones you receive first but use second? Anyway, Danny and Oswald Yield Eric and Pink. They sort of hesitate, saying they're not even sure what the procedure is, and the BQs are all, "Oh, let us show you," which is pretty funny and yet another indication that they really aren't being too badly affected by the efforts to insult them for using the Yield.
Mirna lectures in an interview that the Yield wasn't "necessary," because at the beginning of a leg, the team is guaranteed to just catch up and so forth. Which is bullshit, obviously, given that there aren't always bunching points that are going to eat leads -- in fact, there's nothing from this point forward in this episode that would cause a Yield-created delay to evaporate. You will see at the end of this episode that Yielding here was completely rational and appropriate. Besides, you don't get to decide when the Yield comes. It's true that it would be better if it were later in the leg, but it's the last one. They're not going to offer you a better one; there's not much point in holding out. What I love is that her entire argument is that you wouldn't Yield a team when they're "not that far behind" and they "could catch up and pass you at any moment." Wouldn't that be...exactly when you'd use a Yield? And exactly when it would be necessary? I wonder sometimes whether she listens to anything she says, because if she does, that might be why she frequently seems confused.
So the teams get past the Yield sign and go to the clue box, and the clue (for which Dustin and Kandice are now Team One again, from the number downstairs) is a Roadblock. Phil says that this will be the highest jump in the history of the show. The Roadblocker will put on safety gear (duh) and then walk around the outside of the observation deck. And then they'll jump off and fall 660 feet to the ground on a wire. This is the first thing I've ever really noticed Dustin blanching at, because she's notably like, "Um, I think you would be great at this," with this hint that it would be not such a good idea for Dustin herself to try to do it, lest it turn out to be a lot more terrifying than the swimsuit competition. Danny takes it for his team, and Charla takes it for hers. The Roadblockers suit up, and Charla good-naturedly comments on how the sleeves are short for everyone else and long for her, and Kandice good-naturedly laughs in return. I get the feeling that if you removed Mirna from the mix, the other five people currently in this front group would get along famously. She ruins all fun.
