Over at the Sami camp, Chad is assessing the situation with a cool, clear eye: "Dammit, Stephanie, this is gonna be a bitch. We gotta hustle." He's glad that at least he was in the Boy Scouts. What happened to A Scout Is Kind?
Nick and Vicki have their helmets on for what is subtitled as their "1st attempt," but if a couple of bikers can't do this, what hope is there for them at all? Vicki understates that they're more of a physical couple than a mental one (which is like saying they're more carbon-based than super-sentient, time-traveling wave forms), and since they like to snowboard and ride motorcycles, they do this pretty well and get their Pit Stop clue in sixth place. Which Connor and Jonathan don't fail to notice from the chairlift above.Katie and Rachel make a try, and as athletic as they are, to say that snow is not their element would be an understatement. Team Glee is taking another run at it, and after Jonathan crashes into the fence yet again, he's clearly had enough. The volleyball team is, if possible, doing worse; in fact, Katie falls off her sled and it disappears over a cliff without her. Which is at least better than her going down with it. "I guess we're gonna go switch and do the other Detour," Rachel interviews, now that they've lost half their equipment. Jonathan keeps losing control and crashing. As he puts it, "The sled and I did not agree, and it was becoming truly painful." After clocking in at 4:24, they give up. I normally don't support switching tasks, but if it takes you longer with every attempt, you're going in the wrong direction.
Jill and Thomas reach the mat as team number five, and Thomas still thinks they made the right decision even after hearing that. We'll see if he still feels that way as four more teams straggle in. Especially if everyone takes the same flight out of here tomorrow.
Chad and Stephanie are almost done, and are quite happy to see the volleyball team show up. "We're still in it," Chad whoops, so it looks like Stephanie's out of the doghouse. Katie and Rachel get to work attempting something neither of them has ever done before. With the tent itself completed, Chad assigns Stephanie to make the bed while he builds the fire.
