"Gonna get my Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on, bro," Art says happily and with a surprising degree of accuracy, considering that I don't know when he would have had time to see that movie since I thought it came out after the race started. JJ, on the other hand, just wants this over with. They clumsily lumber over the edge. "I just wanna live, Art, I just wanna live," JJ says as they inch down together. But not enough to give up the million and take the elevator.
Team Big Brother reaches Sand Island and Brendon joins in on the Roadblock while the Rachels wait together on the sidelines. "Are you guys up for a fight for a million bucks?" Dave asks the new arrivals without looking up. Rachel says she likes the fifty-fifty odds better, flattering herself immensely. Dave, whose container is already almost full enough, says his shoulders are burning but he's pressing on. Didn't he say this was easy? After getting going, Brendon says it's hard and Rachel says nobody ever said winning a million dollars was easy. Hell, it took the two of them two seasons of Big Brother to win half that and that was with producer intervention. Other Rachel points out the specks that are Art and JJ, a small fraction of the way down the tower. "They look like little bugs. I want to squish them," Other Rachel says, pinching her fingers together Kids In the Hall-style. Rachel unhappily admits that they're catching up. The Border Patrol agents make it to the ground, but Dave has just finished the Roadblock and Taylor Wily hams up giving him the clue, handing it over while nodding and saying "Awwll riiiight" like it's his own personal catchphrase. Which, for all I know, it might be. "Make your way on foot to one of the helicopters waiting in the outfield," Other Rachel reads. They go back to the cab to ask if there's a baseball field around. Their driver points them to the far end of the park and Dave asks him to drive them over, but Other Rachel hastily corrects that they have to go on foot. Which tells us right there that this is going to blow up in someone's face. "Good job, baby," Rachel says as Brendon slowly shaves ice. She's still avoiding anything to do with shaving herself, I see.
Dave and Other Rachel find the three parked choppers, another popular final-leg staple. "Let's see you spun up to idle, let's go!" Dave says, running up to the waiting pilot and saying he's an army aviator himself. Is that really all the jargon he could come up with? As they get their headsets on and the aircraft lifts off, Dave tells us that although this is his element, he's normally not a passenger. Yes, we've noticed that about you Dave.
