Bopper and Mark finally get to start their leg at 10:38 AM, a resounding last place. Bopper says they're known for their comebacks. Considering they're leaving the mat more than three hours after the team ahead of them, more than two commercial breaks into the episode, in a leg with no artificial bunching, with a Speed Bump ahead of them, and after all of the other teams have already finished the Roadblock, they'll need more than a comeback. They'll need a time machine. Or, failing that, a Fast Forward.
Other Rachel and Dave and Team Penultimate show up in the next neighborhood at roughly the same time, but Other Rachel is the first to spot the barber at work. She hurries over to claim their next clue, just ahead of Vanessa and Ralph. Other Rachel reads from the Detour clue, "Pachyderm or Pack a Box?" Only she pronounces the first word as "patchy-derm," which, oddly enough, Dave doesn't rudely correct her for. Phil turns up in an elephant paddock, saying, "This Detour requires teams to immerse themselves in two jobs found throughout ancient Indian history." Could you vague that up a bit, Phil? For "Pachyderm," they need to decorate an elephant like the provided model, with all manner of fancy tackle, including a headdress, bells, and ornaments. And then, lest they feel too fancy after that, they'll have to schlep 15 wheelbarrows full of elephant poo onto a truck.
