Tiffany gets her clue without actually having to do the task, so she and Maria are in fourth place. That leaves only Flight Time and Ericka up there, counting as the racket from the carillon resumes. Flight Time heads down first and has the correct number, so the Globetrotters are in fifth on their way to the windmill. Standing down below with his arms inside his t-shirt, looking like a chilly amputee, Brian calls up to Ericka not to give up. She does not, but she's the first one with the wrong number: 43. This is not how you catch up. "Brian should have done this," Ericka pants as she does the stairs some more. Brian, for his part, says he knows she's close. "She's gotta be close." Keep telling yourself that. You'll need to. She starts over.
Sam and Dan lead the pack into Vierhuizen, with Meghan and Cheyne right behind them, all the way to the clue box for the Detour. This time, the choice is between "Farmer's Game" or "Farmer's Dance." Phil gives us a little anthropology lesson about the simple lives folks have been living here for centuries, before moving on and explaining the Detour. The teams will have to change into traditional Dutch clothes and ride bicycles for both options. For Farmer's Game, they'll then have to find a creek, strip to the longjohns that came with their costume, and swim across. This is not a narrow creek, either, although there doesn't seem to be much of a current. On the far bank, they'll have to play a round of "golf." Except they'll have to do it in wet underwear, in what continues to be a hellacious wind, and using what Phil describes in a rare moment of understatement as "unique-looking clubs." The "clubs" are actually big solid wooden clogs on sticks, and the balls are the size of cantaloupes but look as solid as croquet balls. Clearly this version of golf is not about finesse. They'll have to finish three holes in eight strokes, taking turns. If they can't do it in eight, Phil says, "They'll have to keep playing until they're up to par." Oh, Phil. Although I'm later glad to see that it's eight strokes per hole, not for the whole course. That would be much harder.
