“SochiLove” Aly and Steve are the first ones to arrive at the upside down house. They find a clue in the toilet which is on the ceiling. Their Detour choice is either Ski, ride a wake board around a ski course, or Tree, serve a meal through zip line. SochiLove chooses Ski. However, most contestants choose Tree.
At the Tree course, all teams must wear waiter suits. It is unclear if they have to bring all of the orders on the tray in just one ride. Teams start to argue about the technique and strategy because their stuff keeps on falling in the middle of the zip line. The Ski course also gives the other teams a tough time.
