But anyway, Jim and Marsha pull up to the bottom of the mountain. Theoretically, they're sort of running for the gondola before it leaves with Marshall and Lance, but it's hard to know to what degree that's what happened. She does claim, as they cross the parking lot, that she sees "teams," presumably in the gliders. Speaking of gliding, Linda and Karen land safely. They read the clue and squeal happily on the way to the pit stop. I invest in ear plugs, as they appear to be my only hope.
Lance and Marshall get on the gondola. Jim and Marsha do not get on with them, and they therefore head up alone, leaving Jim and Marsha to wait for the next one.
Colin and Christie race for the pit stop, as do Charla and Mirna. As they approach, Mirna asks Charla if her hair looks okay. "Mirna, just concentrate on the road," Charla says with some exasperation. "Every time Phil sees us," Mirna complains, "we look, like, terrible." Okay, that was a little bit funny, once. It is, however, not funny anymore. Charla doesn't think so, either, judging from the way she's staring out the window and making a "my partner is a crazy buffoon" face. Again, I'm not sure I don't like Charla. I just can't stand Mirna. Brandon and Nicole are on their way to the pit stop, too. "We just want to win," he says insistently.
Marshall and Lance are strolling to the Detour clue. "This sucks," Lance (I think) is saying. They insist that they're not running, as Jim and Marsha are seen getting out of the gondola at the top. When they reach the clue box, Lance and Marshall select the paragliding. As we watch Lance and Marshall getting ready to go, Jim and Marsha are running to the clue box. Jim leans on the box and looks really, really beat as Marsha reads the clue. I'm not sure he was going to last a lot longer anyway, in all honesty. But at any rate, they unsurprisingly choose the paragliding. "We might as well do something fun," Marsha says unhappily. I sense that reality is setting in. Elsewhere, Marshall and Lance glide, as much as they really can, not being graceful like gazelles, particularly.
Jim and Marsha get ready to glide. He talks again about never giving up, and says that they think they still have a chance to win. Sigh. They glide. Into obscurity. Oh, I'm sorry, were you still in suspense?
Christie and Colin are first out of their Jeep at Bahia Lopez, and Colin spots Phil out on the island, where he's waiting with three little kids. Aw. Colin and Christie walk across a shallow stretch of water to the island, splashing around up to about their shins. They climb up a little hill and land on the mat. Welcome, Colin and Christie, you are team number one. You can kind of tell that Colin feels that order has been restored to the universe because he is in first place. Christie interviews that they have begun to learn how to really play the game, as Colin stares what I swear to God is the creepiest stare I have ever seen on this show. It is Apprentice-Sam creepy. Creeeeepy. I'm sorry, I have to go and warm up my bones, which are now chilled.
