Up in the plane, Eve is losing it. Even after she jumps with her instructor, she's still freaking out, not to mention wildly flapping her arms and legs, which I'm pretty sure is exactly what you're not supposed to do. Look, I don't give a crap if you want to splatter yourself on the grass, but when you're tethered to another human being, you could make an effort to follow the directions so you don't kill both of you. She freaks out the whole way down. I'm sure the instructor was heartbroken to unfasten himself from her. Because she's, you know, so pretty and charming. Maybe when it was over, he gave her some money. Do you think? Of course, when they're on the ground, she goes on and on about how horrendous it was. "Her biggest fear, she has totally conquered!" Heather raves. Conquered? Yeah, all right. I hope so, because if we have to go through an embarrassing scene like that every time they have to get on a plane, it's going to be a long season. Oh, and also her hair is sticking up all over the place. Gee, I hope they don't try to panhandle looking like that.
Flo and Zach are the second team to the Mat of Destiny. Phil doesn't even try for any suspense. Aaron and Arianne are next, followed by Michael and Kathy. Next are John Vito and Jill, who must have blown the navigating to the hacienda in order to allow them to be lapped by Michael and Kathy the donkeygoers.
Back at the airfield, the last three teams arrive. Everybody wants to skydive. See, that's the spirit!
Heather and Eve are next on the mat. Feh.
Out of the plane go Tramel and Talicia, followed by Derek and Drew and Gina and Sylvia.
Meanwhile, back at the pit stop, Andre and Damon arrive and are team number seven. And then meanwhile back at the airfield, everybody pulls the hacienda clue and takes off.
Eighth to the Mat of Destiny are Dennis and Andrew. In the Tramel and Talicia van, they try to figure out where they're going. Derek and Drew and Gina and Sylvia are doing the same. Everyone is lost, and everyone is trying to get found.
Ninth place at the finish goes to Teri and Ian. As the last three teams battle to get to the hacienda, Talicia almost manages to drive onto a freshly-paved road. Oops. The road crew guy successfully gets her to turn around at what's basically the last possible minute. Sheesh. Everyone struggles with van problems, and Tramel eventually has to provide a push to get them going again. They're sure that they're last, but the twins and the moms aren't doing any better. Derek and Drew wind up offering twenty bucks to someone to take them there (they'll follow in the van).
