Vanessa and Ralph are the third team to reach Temple, and they decide to skip the Fast Forward. Since the previous teams left, some guys who are wearing tiger masks and have tiger faces painted on their bulbous torsos are dancing around for some reason. Because of how that's perfectly normal. Team Penultimate takes off to the mat shop, and Art and JJ show up. They're surprised to see another Fast Forward in this race, but they know that neither they nor Other Rachel and Dave can do it, so it's pretty much moot for them. At least for now.
Speaking of the latter team, they're currently stopped for fuel at a gas station. Other Rachel is staying cheerful, but Dave looks like a caged animal waiting in the back seat. "Hopefully everybody's having difficulty with transportation on this one," he says once they're back on the road.
Brendon and Rachel reach the second temple, where the two priests wait for them on the mat. And yes, there's still the small shrine, and the items in front of them are a variety of sharp objects and a printed page, which reads as follows: "It is a custom in India to express gratitude for good fortune. Those who are willing to express their gratitude by sacrificing their beauty are given blessings in proportion to their sacrifice." If that were actually true, Rachel would only get spotted a five-minute head start. But the page goes on, "To win the Fast Forward, each of you must have your head shaved." Now, as you may remember, when The Amazing Race rips off a previous season, it's called a "Switchback" so it sounds more deliberate.
