Amazing Race fans ready? Let's GO!
Teams are running all over from place to place picking up clues. They have to go to San Diego for one (not California) and to the catacombs.
Detour - Tickets -- collecting tickets on a bus. Tejo has them throw a disk rock thing on some sort of bang type fireworks dohickey. It's kind of like cornhole with a bang. (No, that's not how Phil explained it.)
Dana and Matt continue to be the only team arguing. Sigh. Oh geez ... the alpha male team, Kurt and Brodie, actually chest bump.
Gah. One of the women on one of the female teams (the one whose person was claustrophobic during the prior cave challenge) is about to go into a full-burst anxiety attack in the catacombs. It's Jessica and Brittany -- not sure which girl it is, though.
The alpha boys get to the Roadblock first. "Who's left holding the bag?" They have to find bags by the same designer as one given to them, searching a gazillion bags and several vendors.
Kurt and Brodie are headed to the Pit Stop.

Oh noes! Rachel counted the bus money wrong. She and Zach have to go back and finish that Detour.
3. Burnie and Ashley
4. Dana and Matt (He thinks they need to work together better. Y[think?)
Jessica is trying to help Cole on the Roadblock even though she's ready for the next clue. Finally she leaves him be. Rachel and Zach finally finished the Detour.
