Kevin and Gary are approaching the platform. Mallory remarks on their hero-walk, and does an imitation of it that looks more like Curious George with E.T.'s hand up his ass. Claire is also geared up, and has to explain to her Norwegian guide what a wedgie is, because she's having one right now.
Back at the Fast Forward, Nat says, "Mmm, crunchy," which is a nice little revenge for Kat's earlier comment about height of the gondola. They're still powering through, though: "Tastes like a million dollars," Kat says. Well, half a million, but then they're each only eating half the head.
Kevin and Gary are both over the rail, and Kevin starts lowering himself down while Michael calls down encouragement. Gary's right behind Kevin, but goes down faster. Not that it matters; now they're both just dangling a few yards above the fjord waiting for a boat. "My ____ are already gettin' it, Gary confides to Kevin, who quips back, "I don't know what you're talking about." They're more worried about the climb than the descent, though. What goes down must go back up, right? Although right now I'm sure they were wishing that were true of their testicles.
Nat and Kat are almost done, and turn to their host for encouragement. He just glares wordlessly at them. "You're very inspiring," Nat deadpans right back at him. They eat their last morsel and hand over the stripped skull to their host for inspection. He's satisfied, and hands over their Fast Forward clue. Now all they have to do is drive to Ankenes Marina, this leg's Pit Stop, about which we will presumably be learning more later. As they run back to their car, they discuss whether to get sick now or after they get to the Pit Stop, and decide to put it off for later. Seems like a solid strategy.
Nick and Vicky have just reached the mountaintop clue box and decide to do the Fast Forward, which I think makes them the first sixth-place team in history to make that decision. Nick says they have to hurry, because "Everybody's going to be doing that Fast Forward." So clearly they don't know how a Fast Forward works at all. Add the Fast Forward to what I'm sure will be a long and growing list.
Further back, Chad is wishing ill fortune on the one team behind them. Speaking of whom, Katie tries to convince anyone in the universe that it's actually easier to be in last place. She is not convincing Rachel, or even herself, if you ask me.
