Ernie & Cindy are approaching on what appears to be a pretty wild road, full of wandering chickens and large rocks. The road is so bad, in fact, that Marcus compares it to the ones in Detroit. Bill and Cathi are making good progress with their rope when Ernie & Cindy arrive and are "shocked" to see the grandparents already there. Cindy agrees to take on the spelunking task, and as she heads for the cave all geared up, Cathi vows, "We're going to be rocking and rolling right behind them." Liz & Marie arrive in third place, and are loudly unsurprised to be spelunking. As Amani and Marcus arrive, he pries himself out of the back seat of the cab, grunting, "I know how you feel, Big Easy." He's not quite that big, but remember, that was three hours in the back of that cab. Bill and Cathi finish their Speed Bump, so Amani and Marcus are technically in fourth place when they read their clue. Marcus agrees to spelunk, although he has no idea what the word means. "Good lord, I hope I don't have to go up high," he says. Well not exactly. Cindy gets started, apparently having done this lots of times, and she happily starts rappelling down. Marie is not far behind, saying she's going to pee her pants, but she's happy do be doing something she's never done before. I'm sure Cindy, right below her, will appreciate any efforts Marie puts into her continued continence. Marcus tells us that as a deer hunter, he spends a lot of time in trees, "So this is no fear for M.P." Cathi yells, "Attack, attack, attack!" at Bill as he goes over. The four racers proceed down the ropes, all having a great time when they're not busy avoiding trees. Pretty scenery, to be sure.
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.
