The third and last pair of teams finally reaches the guy with the bikes. Team No Longer Undercover, in fifth place, chooses Marksmanship, the same as Vanessa and Ralph. Three of them are soon riding bikes down the steep, bumpy hill, but tiny little Vanessa can't seem to get her high bicycle balanced and keeps falling off and crashing into the ditch. Maybe you do forget how to ride a bike, if you're Vanessa. As Nary and Jamie reach the village, she gives up and walks it down the hill, yelling at Ralph's attempts at verbal assistance. "I can't ride it, it's too tall!" We go to ads wondering how many times in her relationship she's told him that.
She takes another crack at it after the ads, with her feet splayed out to the sides instead of on the pedals. I think that's to serve the dual purpose of helping her stay on balance and to break her fall when she inevitably fails to do so. Sure enough, she ends up crashing again, although at least this time she makes a relatively soft landing onto a high dirt bank. "Just walk it, babe," Ralph says, as though that isn't what she's been wanting to do all along. Meanwhile, at the bottom of the hill, Jamie and Nary have already started throwing Rungu. "We're used to targets and we're both great shots," Jamie interviews, all evidence to the contrary. "I hear that," says Jamie's femur.
Art and JJ tell their driver to slow down as they pull up next to something that looks like a destination, but it turns out to just be Japanese tourists with cameras. It's actually kind of amazing that this show doesn't see more of those. They tell their driver, Richard, to drive on. Behind them, Brendon and Rachel get directions from another group of people who tell them to go back the way they came. Rachel's frustrated at this development, but as Brendon correctly points out, "As of right now Art and JJ are out in front, in the wrong direction, which is very good for us." I bet Art and JJ will be mad that Brendon and Rachel didn't spend more time following them when they find out about this. Bopper and Mark are also being told they're going the wrong way and need to turn around.
And after all this, it's Other Rachel and Dave, who not so long ago were in fourth place, who find Simba-A campsite. Near the entrance is a packet of clues sticking out from behind a shield that's hung on spears stuck into the bright-green grass. "Set up camp for the night," Dave reads from one of the clues. And this ain't no KOA, mind you. Parked nearby are some Army trucks filled with materials, which Phil says they'll need to start by unpacking, and then "construct this elaborate safari tent, complete with a working bush shower." It is a very nice tent, which also includes two made-up cots, a large shaded porch with a bamboo mat, director's chairs, a table, a canvas sink and various other amenities. As for the shower, it's a canvas cubicle with a solar water sack hanging overhead. We were going to buy one of those for one of our camping trips many years ago, but as my wife Trash pointed out, "Somebody inevitably pees in it." The rest of us were all like, "How is that inevitable? How is that even likely?" But we've never bought one. She remains convinced. I think she suspects they come from the factory with pee already in it. Phil says they can race to the Pit Stop after they're done. "The last team to check in here--" "here" being a spot on a hilltop with a commanding view for miles around -- "may be eliminated." So does that mean there was no Roadblock this leg or does it mean that there was a Roadblock and it was edited out to show more of the interpersonal drama? I'm sure I could find out, but I don't actually want to know.
