"It appears we gotta do a little rock climbing," Marcus says, by which he means Amani is going to do a little rock climbing. She doesn't seem too happy about it, either. She's getting strapped into her harness when Jeremy and Sandy arrive. She climbs up ahead of Jeremy and retrieves the clue, with Jeremy gaining on her. She gets back down and returns to the boat so she and Marcus can get to the Pit Stop. Jeremy soon gets his clue, and Sandy says she's proud of him. She's rather confused when Ernie and Cindy show up, seeing as how Team Control left the Detour before they did. "What happened?" Sandy asks Cindy across the water as Ernie scrambles to the climbing guides. Cindy explains how they pointed their boat the wrong way, and Sandy assures her that there are still two teams behind them, so they're good. Jeremy rejoins Sandy, and they're off to the Pit Stop in fifth place. Ernie is on his way up the cliff, and Cindy tells us, "We practiced rock climbing before we got here, so I know he's got it." Of course they did. At this point I'm actually looking forward to the first eating challenge, just so we can hear about how she and Jeremy practiced consuming large quantities of gross food.
Bill & Cathi get their clue from Soap Island, and Bill's taking this one. Meanwhile, Zac and Laurence have stopped their boat and are drifting somewhere out in the middle of the sea. Laurence interview-excuses that they're used to using marine charts, so either the map or the compass was off. Either way, they're lost. Well, that's just embarrassing. This is like Andy & Tommy failing a snowboarding task, or Marcus messing up a tackling Road Block, or Justin and Jennifer getting stuck on an arguing Detour.
Ernie gets his clue pretty quickly, and he and Cindy take off in their boat in sixth place. Meanwhile, Liz and Marie become the last team to get a clue off the Soap Island clothesline. Bill's already on his way up the cliff, and Cathi explains their Road Block strategy: he might as well take them all, since they're not going to last long anyway. Although she doesn't use those exact words. "Like the view I have!" she calls up to Bill's butt. "Aw, you old lady," he mock-grumps back. She's amazed at how quickly he gets the clue, and hopes they can be out of there before the twins show up. As they sail off in seventh place, Bill says he might take up rock climbing. If only to keep treating Cathi to the view.
