Chuck of Team Mullet is in this category again, so I'm starting to believe that his entire life was preparation for the Race. He's a taxidermist, and Wynona instructs him to "Put [the fruit] together, just like you do your deer heads." I'd reckon that also goes in the category of Phrases Never Before Uttered on "The Amazing Race" and Never to be Uttered Again.
The final Roadblock takes place at a beach. More specifically, the cliffside mall built above the beach with huts connected via random paths and staircases. It's tight, confusing and hot. The task is to search racks of surfboards for a specific image of something the teams have already encountered. Then they have to carry that surfboard to Phil, who is standing on a little lookout that can only be reached by a small marked stairway.
The correct image is of the priest in Bora Bora who gave them a special blessing before they went snorkeling. (I'm sensing a priest theme this episode!)
The Fearless Friends made it to the Roadblock first, and whoever does it finds the correct surfboard quickly. She carries it out as Son Connor heads in to the surfboard rack. Then she passes him again because she can't find Phil.
Connor suggests that they form an alliance; she tells him the correct surfboard and he'll help her find Phil. But will he let her team come in first place? No. She rejects the alliance.
As she looks around, Connor sneaks a peek at her surfboard and finds the right surfboard. So, he cheated! What do you think? Connor and his father make it to Phil in first place and they each win $5,000, so now what do you think?
The Friends arrive in second place, and the Newlyweds, who have not been very annoying this episode, are third.
You say "seen," I say "encountered"
Singer Caroline first chooses a surfboard with a sticker that says Bali, because they're in Bali. She wanders for a bit before finding Phil, and he turns her down.
Next, Caroline chooses a sticker of a surfer. Her partner muses to the camera that Caroline is thinking of things she's seen, not encountered, and I'll leave it to you to decide if it's a simple problem of linguistics.
Finally Caroline grabs the priest surfboard, saying, "Who the heck is this guy?" She drags him to Phil, and Phil asks if she remembers the priest blessing. Not so much, says Caroline, but he checks her in anyway. The Singers are in fourth place.
Working Together - For Real
YouTube and the Roller Moms are in an alliance. The Moms chose the other Detour option - to collect sand from the bottom of a river and transport it 200 yards uphill in a basket on their heads. They end up at the Roadblock at roughly the same time.
YouTube finds the correct surfboard but the Roller Mom doesn't. They arrive at the mat at the same time, but the Moms are sent back to find the right board. Joey flashes his board at them as they run away so they know what to look for. Awww!
YouTube is in fifth place, the Moms are sixth.
Chuck, meanwhile, has been running up and down stairs, out into the ocean and back again trying to find Phil. When he finally does, he has the wrong board. The Moms are there, too, and they do not tell him what to look for. On the one hand, it's a Race, it's a competition. On the other hand, they're already safe, it doesn't hurt to get a little good karma going. I think I would have paid it forward.
Team Hockey had a bad cab driver. He couldn't find the monkey forest. Then their monkey ran away with their coconut. For the Detour, they wanted to do the river sand but their driver didn't know where it was so they had to build the pyramid of fruit.
