Sheri is up for the jump, which means it’s time for the waterworks. She takes her leap… and misses the clue. She’ll have to go again, which means we’re in for a lot more tears, probably both from her and Cole. Fortunately for her, Tyler misses as well, but at least he takes the positive attitude about things. It’s more time for him to flirt with cute Brandon the rappeler.
So, Dana & Matt are away. Since Sheri and Tyler missed on their first try, the clue is moved closer. Also, Sheri seems to have the jitters out of the way now that she’s tried it once, so her focus is better. She grabs the clue and she and Cole will be headed for their helicopter ride.
Even though Korey says that Tyler will totally get the clue on his second try because he doesn’t want to let Brandon down, he misses again. Yikes. Our favorites are looking to be in bad shape. He does manage to grab it on his third attempt.
While in a car to the pier, Dana & Matt borrow a guy’s phone so they can Google the Theresa Ann. They discover that it is a boat, and Dana muses that it’s going to be difficult to find it amongst all the other watercraft. Meanwhile, Tyler & Korey think that “Theresa Ann” refers to a Real Housewife.
With Dana playing the role of “Dinghy Manager,” she directs Matt to drive near a museum. She may be bossy, but it pays off here, because they pretty much find the Theresa Ann instantly. The gentleman in the boat hands them their next clue, which sends them off to Gibraltar Rock for new instructions. Their only mistake was letting their taxi go, because there’s not a good pickup area where they currently are. They find a kindly soul who calls one for them.
Sheri & Cole believe that the Theresa Ann is a museum rather than being near a museum. Er…
While the mother/son team struggle to find the “museum,” Tyler & Korey figure out in the air that the Theresa Ann is going to be a boat. When their cab drops them off, they ask their driver to stay. Interesting. Eventually, Sheri & Cole realize they’re looking for a boat and they locate it. As they pass Tyler & Korey, they try to mislead them about where the Theresa Ann might be, but it’s halfhearted work at best. They try to steal the guys’ taxi, but she tells them she doesn’t know where Gibraltar Rock is.
Tyler & Korey retrieve their clue from the Theresa Ann, while Sheri & Cole contemplate asking the other taxi driver to call them a cab. However, the guys arrive and get in their cab. They search for the location on a phone while their driver also calls for help. But… their driver doesn’t really seem to understand the directions on the phone. Sheri & Cole’s new driver is willing to Google for the location and appears to be more knowledgeable about the area.
