Jeremy and Sandy show up in fifth place, and Jeremy's taking this. The snowboarders are sixth, with Tommy doing this one. Justin and Ethan are also doing this for their respective teams. Kaylani & Lisa show up in ninth, followed by Laurence & Zac, and Kaylani and Zac will be doing it as well. When Ron and Bill show up in last, Bill is taking it on. You'd think a three-hour cab ride would stretch these teams out a little further. Also, I just now realized that there are two racers named Bill. This is the downside of learning to tell the single-gender teams apart and becoming familiar with their individual names.
The three lead racers (Cindy, Marie, and Grandparent Bill) are down in the cave, walking along and complaining about the dark, although the camera lights appear able to pick them out just fine. Presently they find their way to a spot decked out like some kind of ceremonial setting, with a guy and a gong and a bunch of masks and daggers tied together and hung on stakes, with daylight filtering down from the surface, so it's almost literally impossible to miss them. Editing lies. They grab them and head back, encountering Marcus on the way.
Jeremy is now heading down, as are Justin, Tommy, and Ethan. Good thing there are plenty of ropes. Down below, Cindy, Marie, and Grandparent Bill emerge into daylight to find an enormous bamboo ladder reaching all the way to the surface, easily wide enough for half a dozen people to climb at once, or else two giants, or one colossus. A titan would be screwed, though. Jeremy, Justin, Tommy, and Ethan are down in the cave, which Ethan describes as "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Jakarta." Yeah, no. Kaylani's on her way down, loving every minute of it, as are Zac (who pronounces the scene "pretty sweet") and Flight Attendant Bill. Meanwhile, Sandy, Grandparent Bill, and Cindy, who all started up the ladder at the same time, are drawing further apart as the distance between rungs begins to slow down Cindy with her short little legs. Jeremy and the other guys reach the masks on sticks down below, marveling at how crazy and amazing it is that there are masks on sticks. Grandparent Bill is the first to return to the waiting racers up top. "63 and still running!" Cathi yells, leading the other waiting racers in a round of applause as he gets their clue. Whatever their other failings may be (and I'm not forgetting last week), at least they're good at getting the other teams to root for them.
