The crème de la crème of up-and-coming Canadian comedic talent. Hosted by Deb DiGiovanni, five acts compete for the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund.

When the Timbira tribe returns to camp after Tribal Council, Erinn tries desperately to cover up the alliance she had with Candace. But her tribemates aren’t buying it, and Coach decides that she can’t be trusted. Erin feels distanced from her tribe and begins to get paranoid. Meanwhile, Jerry’s stomach is not agreeing with the steady diet of beans, but he tries to hide it so as not to appear weak to his tribe.

At the reward challenge, six members of each tribe are blindfolded and tied together. With the help of a caller, they are verbally guided through a maze to find a bucket. When they have the bucket, they must make their way to a water tower, fill it, and then empty it into a container. When the container is full, one tribe flag will rise. They will then repeat the process, this time filling the bucket with corn. The first tribe to fill both containers and raise two flags will win chairs, blankets, pillows, an umbrella, and a tarp. Also, the winning tribe will send one person to Exile Island, and that person will select someone from the winning tribe to join him/her.

Using some great teamwork, Jalapao wins reward. They decide to send Brendan to Exile Island again, and Brendan chooses Taj to join him. At Exile, Brendan and Taj choose between two urns. This time, Taj gets the clue to the hidden immunity idol: it is back at camp “surrounded by wood.” Taj shares the clue with Brendan, and the two of them form a secret alliance, which eventually may include Stephen and Sierra.

For the Immunity Challenge, two members of each tribe must race to roll a large crate back to their mat. Once all six crates are retrieved, teams will then stack them to build a staircase that spells out the tribe name. The first team to correctly stack their crates and climb the staircase to the platform will win immunity. Erinn tries her best to lead Timbira in assembling the staircase, but the tribe decides to do things their own way, which ends up slowing them down. It’s a close race, but Jalapao pulls ahead, winning immunity and sending Timbira to their second Tribal Council.

Back at the Timbira camp, Erinn knows she’s on the chopping block. She seems relieved when she realizes how sick Jerry really is. Still, Coach is adamant that the tribe stick to the original plan of voting Erinn out. As Timbira tries to decide the best course of action, Brendan goes off on his own to hunt for the hidden immunity idol. He finds it on the wooden statue near the treemail and then buries it under a rock near camp. The “Exile Alliance” is now stronger than ever.

At Tribal Council, Erinn expresses her frustration over the way her tribe ignored her advice at the immunity challenge. Jerry suggests that the tribe needs a leader in order to succeed, and he thinks Brendan is the best man for the job. Coach disagrees, reminding everyone that he’s used to leading and therefore would be the perfect tribe leader. With this, the tribe casts their votes. Coach’s plan to get rid of Erinn doesn’t work, and Jerry is voted out with six out of the seven votes against him. The 49-year-old U.S. Army Sergeant from Rock Hill, South Carolina, is the third person voted out of Survivor: Tocantins.

At the Pit Stop, Margie & Luke are the first to depart. After ripping open their clue, they learn that they will be flying to Munich, Germany. Upon landing they must drive to the village of Ruhpolding. On the way to the airport, most teams take the opportunity to borrow the cab driver’s cell phone to make reservations ahead of time. Margie & Luke, who didn’t call ahead, get lucky and make the Swiss Air flight with the others. But stuntmen Mark & Michael aren’t so lucky–they have to settle for taking the later flight with Christie & Jodi.

Siblings Tammy & Victor arrive in Ruhpolding first and find the Roadblock: one member of the team chooses an instructor and paraglides off the mountain to the ground 6000 feet blow. The other teammate rides a gondola back down the mountain to wait for their partner. If the high winds make it unsafe to paraglide, teams have the option to chose a 60-minute hike down the mountain. The winds aren’t subsiding, so everyone except Mel makes the choice to hike down the mountain. Mel insists on waiting. Due to a groin injury he incurred during the cheese challenge, he doesn’t think he can make it down the mountain on foot. As it turns out, the wind dies down and Mel paraglides down the mountain, having the time of his life.

Meanwhile, Linda takes a wrong turn while hiking down the mountain and gets lost. A helpful woman gives her a lift back to the cable cars, where she tries again and finally makes it back to her patiently-waiting husband Steve.

Teams drive 25 miles to Schonau Am Konigseeking, where they receive clues for the Detour: they can either ride a Segway along a 2-mile obstacle course, or throw traditional Austrian pies at a target, which turns out to be their partner’s face. Tammy & Victor finish the Detour first and receive the next clue: teams must make their way on foot to the Holzsäger, where they have to find mechanical Tyrolean woodcutters and retrieve a small piece of cut wood. Once the teams have their piece of wood, it is stamped with their next clue: the destination of the next Pit Stop, Schloss Hellbrunn in the Austrian city of Salzburg.

Tammy & Victor easily arrive first at the Pit Stop, making them team number one. Meanwhile, flight attendants Christie & Jodi are confused about how to find their piece of wood, and sisters Kisha & Jenn are still experiencing navigational problems.

In the end, Christie & Jodi once again manage to avoid last place, and Steve & Linda, married couple from Martinsville, Va, are the second team to be eliminated from The Amazing Race 14.
