Jaree stops for breath on what appears to be a walk from the ski hill to the Cortina bus station, where they intend to catch the bus to Calalzo, just as Kelly and Jon planned to do.
On the bus, Russell is comparing notes with Reichen and either Monica or Sheree (hard to tell from the back, given the matching outfits) about where in Venice they're headed. Cindy explains in an interview that she wasn't crazy about the way Russell tended to discuss strategy with other teams without ever even talking to her at all. She has not yet figured out that not only does he not have her filed under "G" for "Girlfriend," he has her filed under "L" for "Luggage."
At the Alpi train station, the Alpi teams get on the train to Venice. Josh notes that they're still "missing two teams," in that "Kelly and Jon and the blondes" aren't around. At 5:40 AM, the train leaves.
At the Cortina bus station, Tian and Jaree are just arriving. When they get there, they see only Kelly and Jon, who exchange a bit of a "bleh, models" look upon seeing the girls. Tian works the counter, but Jaree seems to have a map and some notes already. "Let me show you," she says, proudly unfolding her stuff. "Back off. When I want to find out information, let me," Tian scolds. Wow, that sucked. Jaree walks off, obedient but pissed. You know, when your partner is struggling a little bit, as Jaree has been, it's a good idea not to blow her off when she's pitching in. Just saying.
Back to the Calalzo train station, where Tian and Jaree and Jon and Kelly are surprised to arrive and find no other teams. "Where the hell is everybody?" Kelly wonders. Cut to the Alpi train, carrying all the other teams. Even though it's not a pit stop, the teams appear to be Mingling. Phil does not, however, materialize and impose penalties. As the train from Calalzo takes off, both Jaree and Kelly puzzle over where the other teams could be.
Commercials. Hey, if there's anybody I trust to screen dates for me, it's Simon Cowell. "That was horrible. That was the wuuhhhst pick-up line I've ever heard," he would say.
The Amazing World Map shows two very cramped little Amazing Yellow Lines inching from Calalzo and Alpi to Venice. This is all the action that the AYLs are getting in this leg, too -- they're going to get all shirty before long, like those "gifted" kids whose parents swear that the reason they spit in other people's food is that they're "not challenged." Chip explains that since nine teams are on the Alpi train and only two aren't, it's not so much that anyone has a lead as that a couple of people are screwed.
