Dave has begun using his ascender and is up off the ground. Other Rachel takes off as well, with Dave being uncharacteristically encouraging. "Slow and steady. Deliberate movements," he instructs. Just like back home in bed.
Art and JJ get to a hotel and ask a couple of parking valets for help with the clue. One of them suggests "a statue of a guy on a boogie board." So they go off in search of two statues on Waikiki Beach. Which is so not where they're supposed to be going, and the only thing in their favor is that it's not that big an island. JJ says this has been their hardest clue of the whole race, which is rather telling. "And knowing Big Brother, they'll just stumble on it out of pure dumb luck." Well, he's not wrong.
Other Rachel figures she's about halfway up. Dave has reached the top and he calls down that he needs her up here. "Holy crap, It's getting really windy up here," she says. Brendon and Rachel start up their ropes and Rachel begins her whining. Other Rachel reaches the top of the rope and after she and Dave climb up into the roof, Dave quickly finds the banner at the park down below. "How the hell do you get there?" he wonders. That's actually not an idle question, because there's only one road to the island they have to get to and it leads way around to the far end. Brendon is leading Rachel up the ascender ropes while Dave is trying to memorize the roads they'll need to take to get to the park. Once he's satisfied, he tells Other Rachel he has it. She's more concerned about how they're going to get down. They head to the end of the roof and while looking down, Other Rachel says, "Oh, my god. I thought the adventure was over." This early in the leg?
Art and JJ find the statues on Waikiki Beach, but of course they're the wrong thing entirely, because they're called Makua and Kila. "We gotta figure something out, Art," JJ says. Yep, starting with a graceful concession speech for when they eventually find the giant mat. After the ads, the Border Patrol agents head to one of the gift shops off the beach, where a local directs them to the twin towers in Pearl City. At least they're on their way to the right place now.
