BJ lands. Jeremy admits that "that was pretty cool." BJ and Tyler open the next clue, which tells them to drive about 20 miles to a wildlife park and find something called the Magnetic Termite Mounds. That is a mouthful. I have no joke, because there are too many concepts. It's like, "Hey, that sounds like a wooden statue of Jessica Simpson's chest with, uh...magnets on it." I can't even begin to imagine. Phil explains that the idea is that termites have built these mounds, and they all point toward magnetic north. That officially gives these particular insects a better sense of direction than I have. Not that I particularly value a sense of direction, given that one of my friends called me this week from another state and led with the line, "First, we have to figure out what city I'm in." Oh, yes, I'm serious. ["And no, it wasn't me. For once." -- Sars] Anyway, at the termite mounds, they will find another clue. As BJ and Tyler leave, Tyler tries to throw some kind of a thumbs-up to MoJo, which is...you know, if you're going to do it for personal reasons, then just own it, dude. Joseph is having none of it, and lets Tyler know. In the car, Tyler mocks Joseph for being angry. Again, own it, you know? Don't act like taking offense is beneath you when you did it out of spite.
Joseph asks Monica if she's getting all ready to jump, and she says, "Yeah, I'm pumped," and he makes fun of how she doesn't sound pumped, and he calls her a brat, and they continue to bicker, and thanks to the very smart camera guy, we see that their hourglass runs out while they're standing there arguing, and they just keep arguing. Finally, he notices, and she takes the Roadblock, giving him a smooch as she goes.
Eric jumps. He does not say "T-Tow." They get their clue and go. Ray jumps. No power word for him either. As he lies on the ground with the instructor still tied to him, Yolanda coos, "Oh, that's so sweet; he's holding you and everything!" Ray mutters, "It's not funny." Heh. Oh, come on, Ray. It's a little funny. They get going.
BJ and Tyler reach the termite mounds and ultimately find the clue box. As they run through the mounds, BJ calls out, "Don't touch them! Termites will eat all the wood in your body!" And Tyler comes back with a panicky, "My peg leg!" Which: funny. Because: not "lookee meeeee!" nonsense. GET IT? When they pull the clue, they find this week's Detour, where the choices are Dry and Wet. In Wet, you drive six miles and then hike and swim a course down a river full of spiders and "poisonous plants." In Drive, you go six miles of regular road and six miles of off-road, and then you proceed into the jungle and pick out a didgeridoo. Then you follow the sound of other didgeridoos, and you make your way to one of several aborigines. When you find the one whose didgeridoo has the same markings as yours, you let him teach you how to play a note, and when both team members have played one, you can go. In other news: I now know how to spell "didgeridoo," and I am pleased to see that Microsoft Word does, too.
