It's Tammy's turn to drive, and Victor is singing "Hellbrunn, Hellbrunn, Hellbrunn, Hellbrunn" until she tells him to quit it. "This'll be our leisurely stroll to the Pit Stop," he says. I hope he's joking. That attitude hasn't worked out so well for Mark and Michael.
And way back at the mountain, poor Linda is still trudging down the gravel path, saying, "I hope this is the right way. I hope this is where I'm supposed to meet them." And back at the meeting place, Steve understates, "Unfortunately, Linda's not the best with directions." Mark is the next to arrive, followed by Cara, putting the Stuntmen and Team Go Team in sixth and seventh place respectively. Linda doesn't see a route marker, but at least she hears traffic, so we know she's unlikely to starve out here. "Perhaps she may have made a wrong turn," Steve ventures. Jen arrives, much to Kisha's relief, and Jodi is still waiting for Christi. And we rejoin Linda, who has come out onto a road near a cluster of houses and a rest stop. "This is not good," she frets. "I've made a mistake. Oh, God, he's gonna hate me now," she says as she begins crying. Who's going to hate her? Who does she mean? Because I don't think Phil would act that way. Finally, at the meeting place, Christie jogs into view, and the Flight Attendants wish Steve good luck as they leave him sitting there. Now officially in last place, Linda is beginning to gasp as she bumbles along the road, weeping, "I wish I hadn't of walked down that stupid mountain," she wheezes. Yes, blame the mountain.
So what next? Looking up, she knows she can't make the return hike, so she needs to get help. She flags down a woman in a minivan and asks, "Do you know how to get to the cable cars?" This turns out to be the break she needs, and we see Linda riding in the back, while the woman in front can be heard chuckling at her hitchhiker's predicament. "Maybe he'll be happy to see me, I don't know," she says.
Tammy and Victor have indeed arrived at Schloss Hellbrunn first, and they enter the wide-open main gate and jog leisurely between two of the long, yellow structures until they reach a courtyard, where Phil is waiting. Appropriately enough, he's standing next to a guy who's dressed like an extra from Amadeus. "Welcome to Salzburg, Austria," the greeter says. Phil tells them that they're team number one, and they almost hug each other before Tammy remembers, "Okay, you're gross." Their prize? Hybrid go-carts. Even Phil is kind of embarrassed to have to tell them that, but they're thrilled about it for some reason. "Have you guys taken a look at how ridiculous you both look?" he teases. Tammy teases him right back with a flirty pose to show off the pie remnants still crusted to her face and hair. "It's quite becoming," Phil says, and offers a shrug/eyebrow pop. In their post-leg interview, in which they're still covered with pie filling, Tammy says, "As much as I don't want to admit it, we have a 26-year long relationship. And the fact that Victor makes the final decisions and I've had 26 years to sort of get used to that?" "It doesn't mean she's happy about it," Victor says. "But I know that's how it is," she says. Okay, that's grosser than being covered in pie.
