Lori and Bolo and Hayden and Aaron make it to their SUVs to go to the pit stop at almost the same time. Hayden and Aaron just go, while Bolo and Lori stop for directions, so the actors get a small lead over the rasslers right away. "You're an idiot," Bolo says. "Well then you're an idiot, too," she comes back. In their car, Hayden asks if Aaron heard Lori screaming, and he says he did. "'STUPID!'" he mimics. They chat about how obnoxious it is when people "degrade each other." And then Aaron says, "Slow down, stupid." And they both laugh. Heh.
There are some more awesome glacier shots, and then Lena and Kristy and Kris and Jon are heading for the ice climb. Kristy heads up first, and she is able to do it, in spite of her claim that her hands are "shaking like crazy." Heh. Jon says he and Kris need to beat those two. Lena does okay on the wall as well, and by the time Jon starts, she's much of the way up. Lena gets to the top, then Jon, then Kris. Lena and Kristy are really psyched that they did that climb, and I don't blame them. These two very happy teams head out for the pit stop.
At the beach, Meredith and Maria read the Detour clue and choose the climb. Don and MJ do, too, but Gus and Hera take the boats. Which is probably wise.
Joe and Avi? Still hunting. They see something, but it turns out to be a boat. Ack! Spazpants is hunting for the buoy, too, but of course, they find it. Because the universe is irritating that way. As they holler, you can just see the look of absolute hate blooming on the face of their poor boat guy. They scream upon reading about the pit stop, and we cut back to their boat driver, who is still mortified. I have a feeling he's trying to remember what the local laws say about when you can throw people into a glacial lagoon and leave them there. You really can tell people just don't behave this way in Iceland. Of course, they don't behave this way anywhere else, either. "WOOOOOOO!" yells Spazpants in unison. Freaks.
Avi and Joe? They're not finding it. "We're morons," Joe says. "Man, this bites," Avi replies. And I agree.
Commercials. You know, when I read Skipping Christmas, I really didn't think, "This would make a great Tim Allen slapstick movie."
When we return, Avi and Joe are still driving around. "I don't even fear losing, it's just it's annoying," Joe says. Heh. I think that's the feeling that would make me a bad Racer. I don't mind losing, but I'm not a big fan of aimless wandering around.
Hayden and Aaron, on the other hand, are cooking with gas as they cruise toward the pit stop, happy to have beaten "the Meatheads." Snerk. Aaron explains that he has a map that shows the pit stop, so he thinks they're in a good position. They chat about the fact that they actually like Bolo okay; it's Lori they think is too much. But as if to prove that birds of a screaming feather tend to flock together, we cut directly to Lori saying something to Bolo that causes him to bellow at her. She mocks him for having offered to do the map, since he now can't seem to find where they're going. They hop out of the car to talk to a woman by the side of the road. "She's from here!" Lori says. "Let's ask her." When they have their directions and are back in the car, they're still at it. "I'm not going to argue with your frickin' ignorance," he says. She yells that it's fault for making her turn the wrong way, he yells that she should shut up...well, I just can't get enough of this.
