Last week's winners, Jeff & Ms. Jordan, depart the Pit Stop at 3:21 a.m. and receive their clue to start the second leg of the race, all of which will take place in Chile. The directions are pretty complicated … take a bus to Santiago, then drive to Puerto Varas, then climb a trail to somewhere to get the next clue. "It's a good thing I'm recording this," I think to myself, "so I can go back and get all the names later."
Jeff & Ms. Jordan get to the bus station only to find that the next bus departs at 5 a.m. which, in true TAR form, means all teams will start this leg off at the same time.
At the bus station, Joe & Heidi and Carol & Brandy decide to form an alliance, which I always think is goofy when teams do it on this show. However, it means something tonight because when Joe & Heidi end up first in line for bus tickets to Puerto Varas, they save a place for Carol & Brandy. It turns out that the first bus has only four available seats and the second bus leaves an hour later. The rest of the competitors are thus relegated to the second bus. (The Detectives are shown arguing with Joe about saving spots in line, so I'm guessing this foreshadows a larger conflict to come between Joe and the Detectives.)
