At the top of the hike, Sweaty Rob removes the Detour clue from the basket. It tells them that they can either rock-climb up to a particular little cave, or take a long and winding hike there. "I say we came here to climb," Rob says. "Of course," Brennan agrees. "Let's climb." And their reputation as Most Non-Dilly-Dallying Decisionmakers Ever remains intact. Ruthless! Efficiency! Must! Go! Forward! Esquire climbs the rock. It doesn't look like it's horribly difficult for them, actually. I guess being a gym rat pays off every now and then. It's a shame this race doesn't feature competitive protein-shake-drinking, isn't it? They would totally kick butt.
Danza, on the hike. "Make sure the pack is tight on you," Frank says. "You can do it," he singsongs. "I'm fine, kid," Margarita answers, turning the "kid" we've usually heard from him back in his direction.
More Esquire climbing, looking steely indeed, with Rob supplementing his climbing with a hefty grunt.
More Danza hiking. Frank says Margarita is doing a "good job."
Esquire pulls the clue at the top of the climb, which tells them to go to a place called "Sea, Land & Trek" in Bor Tor, Ao Luk. No, really. Don't you wish that was the name of your town? Bor Tor, Ao Luk? That's just cool. It would be worth it just so you could wait for a telemarketer to call you, and you could pretend to order something, and then when they asked you your address, you'd say, "Bor Tor, Ao Luk." Then they'd ask how you spell that, and you'd say, "Just how it sounds." Then you'd hang up and laugh. Anyway, Phil explains that now the teams have to get back down the cliff, then hike back the way they hiked up, then rappel down another set of rocks into a boat that will take them back to Raile Beach, and then they have to get to Ao Luk, where "Sea, Land & Trek" is, it turns out, a boat-rental company. Oh -- and it closes at 5:00 PM.
Danza gets to the bottom of the rock-climb as Esquire works its way down. During his descent, I'd like to point out that Rob says, "Holy cow." Awww, he is so the reality show contestant your mom thinks you should date. ["Really, you think? Not, say, creepy, creepy, overly tattooed glossy-, glassy-eyed speed freak-looking Lex from Survivor? Are you sure?" -- Wing Chun] Right now, Big Brother Krista's relatives are all, "Why did she have to get stuck in that house with that strange rapping boy? Why couldn't she meet a nice lawyer?" Once the boys get down to where Danza is waiting, they give us a moment I think the editors included in order to continue to boost the blossoming warm and fuzzy reputation of the Frank Formerly Known as Loud and Pushy. Are you ready? Are you ready to see what a wonderful guy Frank is? Here we go: Brennan asks Frank to toss him a helmet, and Frank does. Wow, that's very humanitarian of you, Very Humanitarian Frank! Danza considers the Detour options, and Frank pushes for the direct climb, telling Margarita it's going to be just fine. They do this for a little while -- him pushing, her slightly nervous and slightly dawdling. Most notably, as he continues to needle her, she finally says, "Honey, stop it. Give me a second." And he stops. And he gives her a second. My goodness, the man can be taught. It's a miracle. Next he'll be sending flowers.
