Down at the bottom, Darwin explains how he arrived at his answer. Elavia pretty much admits that she got it wrong with a full-body whatever shrug. In an interview, Heather says that the most important element in the rappelling game was trust, because you had to take people's word for why they messed up or couldn't see the question. Actually, I'd say that the most important element in the rappelling game was the harnesses, but that's just me.
Anderson asks Al how much he trusts the players at the bottom of the dam. Al says that he hasn't seen the questions, so he kind of has to trust the answers he was given, since it's not like he has a better option. Anderson asks if Al is going to go with Darwin's answer to the yellow question. Al thinks that Darwin sounded more confident than Elavia did. Anderson asks whether Al trusts Darwin, like, what is this, the third degree all of a sudden? Poor Al is about to throw up because he has to rappel face-first down the dam in a minute and Anderson won't give him a second to breathe. Anderson announces that they are going to let Al hear the questions, so that he can decide the veracity of the answers he was given. So why have them rappel at all? This seems like a big cheat. Down at the bottom, Darwin wonders what in the hell is going on. Heather voice-overs that it was taking so long, they thought maybe Al was getting another exemption.
Anderson reads the questions to Al. For the blue question, Al decides that Bribs is wrong, and that the correct answer is zero. Anderson reads the yellow question, for which Al was given two answers. Al confirms that he's going with Darwin's answer. Al confirms that he's going to go with Darwin's answer for green and Heather's answer for red, so those two numbers won't change. Al gets hooked up to the harness to prepare for his face-first rappel down the dam. Al tells Anderson that they'll know he's ready when they hear him scream like a girl. Hee! Al was bugging me in the first few episodes, but he's kind of growing on me. Although every time I see him, I picture him in that flesh-colored corset he had to wear while running through the streets, and it creeps me out.
