Art makes what is at least his seventeenth attempt and falls off again. JJ says of Other Rachel, "If she gets in there, they're gonna race right to the finish and we lose a million dollars." Still not grasping the concept that it isn't their million dollars to lose yet. And then, when Other Rachel finally does it, JJ announces, "Okay, ballgame. She got it down there. We're done." Looks good on you, too. Other Rachel and Dave collect their clue from the judge and Dave points out that they already know where they're going, but reads, "At last, the Finish Line. Make your way to the Secret Island." There's a sweeping overhead shot of the beach with Phil, the giant mat and the other teams on it, as well as a subtitle confirming that it is indeed called the Secret Island. Although, since it was accidentally discovered by two people with a very high financial stake in finding an entirely different place quickly, a name change may be in order. Dave points out the ATV waiting for them here -- which would have come in pretty handy earlier -- and they put on helmets and drive off while JJ complains that "we were one stupid sled ride away from a million dollars. That's hard to stomach." Actually, you were about twenty sled rides and a bunch of aimless wandering around Honolulu away from a million dollars, if that makes you feel any better. Dave's already counting his chickens, saying, "I believe this is eight and a half victories, since we already saw Phil once." Actually, I think that makes it seven and a half.
Brendon and Rachel are just now finding the marked path to the sledding task. "Our taxi driver sucks," Rachel declares. Brendon agrees, but says they're over it and they're here. And they're certainly not the first Amazing Race team to get screwed by a cab ride in Hawaii. Hell, they're not the first Amazing Race 20 team to get screwed by a cab ride in Hawaii. They find the clue for the Roadblock, which Rachel is obviously doing. "Here comes Rachel and Big Brother. So we had this in the bag," JJ hisses. Lucky for Rachel she didn't take the time to put her layer of sequins back on.
Other Rachel and Dave, having driven back to the boathouse they visited earlier, take their helmets off their sweaty heads and get back on their paddle boards. "I'm proud of you no matter what," Dave tells Other Rachel, which is easy say under the circumstances. She returns the sentiment, which seems like it would be harder.
Rachel takes all of one unsuccessful slide before she's crying, covered with mud and grass stains and yelling at Brendon for trying to encourage her. Art fails again. And then Rachel makes it on her second try. I think even JJ was telling her to hang on there at the end, but he sighs extravagantly when nobody's looking. Then it's Rachel's turn to try rolling stones. One of them brushes a goal post. "So close," the judge confides to us. Rachel, of course, is getting frustrated all over again.
