Nary and Jamie and Bopper and Mark are surveying the damage to their respective pyramids and realizing there's no easy fix for either one of them. Other Rachel decides it's time for her and Dave to leave. Dave wants to use their Express Pass, but Other Rachel flatly refuses. Dave interviews, "You're essentially guaranteed to finish first." Yes, ask Ernie and Cindy about that. As they leave, Nary and Jamie are also making the decision to switch Detours, but Mark has to all but drag Bopper away. Which they discuss as quietly and calmly as all of the other things they say.
Kerri and Stacy are the first team from the second flight to show up at the fruit market and they encounter Bopper and Mark outside. Team Kentucky assures the cousins that the stacking task is not that hard -- it only took them two hours. And then Bopper and Mark claim the ladies' taxi. By the time Kerri and Stacy enter the market and see several incomplete pyramids, standing there in various stages of collapse, they realize they've been had. "Damn and Kentucky just took our cab," Stacy says. In an interview, Mark congratulates Bopper, "You finally played the game like I told you to." They both seem pretty amused with the whole situation, whereas the cousins are emphatically not. In fact, after they secure a new cab, Stacy writes the word BETS on a piece of notepaper, holds it up to the camera and rips it in half, meaning all bets are off. Shudder!
At the Plaza de la Democracia, Art and JJ open a Roadblock clue that asks, "Who's ready to use their head?" Amid dancers with unlabeled green wine bottles balanced on their heads and a band playing in the square, Phil says that teams will now participate in a traditional Paraguayan tradition: the bottle dance. They'll have to get through a whole routine without dropping the bottle that's balanced on their heads. Each team gets a table of fifty bottles with which to attempt the task and if they break them all, they'll have to take a two-hour penalty. Standing next to a woman with five bottles stacked on her head one atop the other, Phil says that after the racers have completed the dance without breaking the bottle on their head, she'll hand them their next clue. With five bottles on her head? Couldn't she just put the clue down somewhere and back away to a safe distance of, say, five bottle-heights?
