Chris, meanwhile, voices over that his "aggressive, competitive nature" might be upsetting to Amanda, since he can basically be a raging jerk sometimes. (I am paraphrasing.) I'm sure, by the way, that Chris and Amanda and other single racers really appreciate watching the show with their grandparents and having to stare at the conspicuous empty space under their names after "DATING" where the word "VIRGINS" would otherwise appear. For some reason, we see Millie and Chuck tell us again that the three teams that stepped on the mat together in first place yesterday formed an alliance. Yeah, we know. We got that part from the tie, the "wooo!," the high-fives, the fact that you're all traveling in a pack, and several other subtle clues.
At the ski hill, an unidentified voice observes that "that thing is fuckin' steep, y'all," which is pretty much precisely what I would say. Hey, maybe that was me! Nah, I'd probably remember a trip to Italy. The raft van can only take two teams at a time, so Millie and Chuck and Chris and Amanda go up first, agreeing to wait for Josh and DadSteve after they're done. ["Kind, but dumb." -- Wing Chun] At the top of the hill, Millie and Chuck strap on their yellow helmets and prepare for the trip down. They clamber into the inflatable raft. AAAAAAAAAH! (That was my impression of Chuck and Millie going down the hill. I don't normally do impressions, so I hope you enjoyed it.) Incidentally, although I wouldn't swear to it under oath, Chuck appears to yell "Oh my God!" all the way down the hill, and I would point out that if you're going to stick to the virginity thing, you might take note that you're not really supposed to do that either. But anyway. At the bottom of the hill, Millie offers up a "That was awesome! YEAAAH!" that reminds me, as so many things do, of the Get Him A Body Bag, YEAH! Guy in The Karate Kid. At the bottom, they jump out of the raft and run to the route marker, where Chuck begins his painful misadventures involving Italian. The clue tells them to make their way to the Ponte Della Guglia Bridge in Venice, which Chuck drawls as, "Pawnta-della...googly...[shrug]...in Venice." As the cameramen race along what I can only assume are narrow Venetian streets, Phil explains that in order to get to Venice, the teams must depart from one of two train stations: Calalzo (which is closer but has a later train), or Alpi (which is farther away but has a train that leaves sooner). Once they get to Venice, they'll go to the Googly Bridge for the clue.
