One of you must enter the vault and select four teams based on:

  • who is least trustworthy?
  • who has the best sense of humour?
  • who is most overrated?
  • who do you most want to stay in touch with?

Enter your answers as a four-digit combination to a safe. This team member must leave. If the other team member can open the safe within 10 minutes, the team can leave early with the clue inside. Otherwise you've eaten 10 minutes and you'll be handed a clue.

Make your way to the main entrance of the San Francisco Botanical Garden. Run to the Finish Line. This is it gogogo!!!!!
  make further guesses, but their time expires before they find the right combination.
