Do You Like American Candy?
October 5

Last time, 11 teams set out from Los Angeles on a frenetic race around the world for a million. When the teams landed in Brazil, though, it was Wonder Not-Twins Nick & Starr who were the first to the Pit Stop. Hippie Beekeepers Anita & Arthur were the last, and the first team to be eliminated, leaving Southern Belles Marisa & Brooke to play up the rear.

PIT STOP - Porte Sao Marcelo, Salvador, Brazil

Teams have stopped here for a mandatory 12-hour rest period to sleep, eat, and, much to Terence's chagrin, mingle with the other teams. In fact, they're arguing about it during the rest period. The altercation ends in Terence going to the bathroom without a resolution and Sarah crying.

Nick & Starr were the first to arrive at 4:07p local time, so they will depart first at 4:07a with this clue...


Fly 640 miles to Fortaleza, Brazil. Upon landing, travel by taxi to the tiny village of Combuco and find the Plaza do Combuco. There is where you'll find your next clue.

You have $125 for this leg of the Race.

Nick tries to keep Starr calm when she wants to be in control. Ken & Tina, wanting life partners instead of a life sentence, have to make a decision, yes or no, whatever that means. We have an injury on the field as Terence hits his head on the taxi trunk door. Ouch. Team Superbad Mark & Bill isn't worrying or snapping much.

The first teams arrive at the airport, where they discover that the flight to Fortaleza doesn't leave until 11:30a.

Next to leave are the Divorced Women's Club Kelly & Christy and Toni & Dallas.  Meanwhile at the airport, we find an earlier flight at 6:45a. Tina makes the counter ladies think they're working for her, so they get on that plane.

One by one, the bottom five are on their way to the airport. Anthony & Stephanie's hack having to push his rig. Not good. Anthony wants to be a provider, while Stephanie wants the ring. Marisa & Brooke aren't enjoying being the last team out of the gate. They pledge to be sneakier and work harder.

The top eight are all going to be on the same flight thanks to Tina's efforts. Tina says Ty owes him. Ty says he owes Tina nothing. A couple of pieces of candy and a sweet southern smile later, Marisa & Brooke make the same flight. But in line at the gate, Tina & Ken decide to take it upon themselves to cut to the head ("What's fair is fair."). And leave it to Terence to make it an issue.

He apologizes later... and all the teams are on flight to Fortaleza, Brazil.


It's a mad dash to grab a taxi and head to the village square. And Anthony & Stephanie get a bum taxi... AGAIN.

CLUE BOX! STOP THE CAB! Terence & Sarah are first to read...


Choose a bluegray or dune buggy and ride it to the village of Cayupe. Once there, find Barraca d Manoel, where a local vendor will give you your next clue.

Needless to say, the ride is awesome.

Anthony & Stephanie, though, are still on a taxi looking at squalor. Makes you appreciate what you have. Meanwhile, Aja & Ty and Andrew & Dan are still looking for the clue box.

At Barraca d Manoel the teams get...

BEACH IT: Travel by dune buggy to Pecem Beach, where you have to choose a boat and a two-man team to drag the 440-pound vessel 100 yards across the sand and into the water.

DOCKET: Travel by dune buggy to the port of Pecem. At the shipyard, scour the database for the same serial number listed in your clue. Use the corresponding four-letter code to find the section of the shipyard where your container is located.

Teams opt for "Beach It". Mark & Bill, though, head to the docks, citing playing to their strengths. Marisa & Brooke head the same way, because they're just not strong enough. Only somehow, they end up at the wrong task. Might as well do it.

"As Yoda would say, do or do not. There is no try." The geeks rip it up at the database, but finding the container is another story.

Over by the boats, Nick & Starr find that affection works wonders. No, really. Terence & Sarah finish with the boats and head to...


Travel by taxi to Parque de Vaquejada, where you will find your next clue. You should have your taxi wait.

Terence & Sarah decide to head in the opposite direction, figuring further run, but no hill... Yeah, good luck with that. Nick & Starr head the other way and find taxis. Meanwhile, Kelly & Christy are fixated on the wrong task, thinking that they need to bring back a container of some sort.

Mark & Bill find their container and head out to the next stop.

Kelly & Christy are still thinking about containers.

And a special hello to everyone tuning in for Cold Case.

Ken & Tina argue about heading across the canal and up the hill, while Mark & Bill pass Terence & Sarah... Ken & Tina almost stop right behind them, but then they just keep on going, for which Tina scolds Ken. "You need to think about them." Terence & Sarah eventually catch a cab... after Dallas tells them that they had to go up the hill to do so. D'oh!

Back at the boats, Aja & Ty talk the dirt to the blondes, who're dead tired. Kelly & Christy forget about the container and head to the taxis. The Belles and the Newly-Daters finally finish the Detour and head to Parque de Vaquejada. Once there, they find...


Your next clue is located somewhere on this wall, "Cidade da Criança". Overlook the ads, avoid overthinking, and focus on the small, laid back culture. Supply the correct destination to the painter to receive your next clue.

Mark & Bill decide to write the entire list of destinations. One of them's bound to be right. Right? Right! Ken & Tina do the same thing.

Both end up with this!


Travel by taxi to Cidade da Criança, Brazil. This monument for the people is the Pit Stop for this leg of the Race.

WARNING! The last team to check in MAY BE ELIMINATED!

Now it's a race between Ken & Mama and Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus.

Meanwhile, as everyone else arrives at the wall, Kelly & Christy have learned to read the clue, duh. Apparently not well enough, as they let their taxi go as soon as they arrive at the Road block.

PIT STOP - Cidade da Criança, Fortaleza, Brazil

Foot race for first... Superbad vs. the cheating footballer...

"Ken & Tina... You are TEAM NUMBER ONE!" Their prize for winning... an offroad vehicle for each of them! Right behind them, Mark & Bill. they say that if getting first allows them to strengthen their marriage, then screw the ATVs.

Kelly & Christy are ahead of everyone, but they need a taxi.

One by one, the teams pass the wayward blondes in their taxis, while the Southern Belles... think they need to know Spanish. a) They're in Brazil, and b) they just need to think.

Next to the Pit Stop... Terence & Sarah, Aja & Ty, and Toni & Dallas in that order. It seems that working with each other rather than against each other has ruled the day.

... and it seems that Kelly & Christy's taxi was there the whole time. Yikes.

Nick & Starr are in sixth... Kelly & Christy... seventh. Andrew & Dan... eighth.

Now it's a race to avoid being eliminated...

And Marisa & Brooke narrowly avoid being last. Unofrtunately for Anthony & Stephanie, they're the last team to arrive and are eliminated from the Race. They're hoping to get back on track financially, but at least they have their health, their looks, and each other. But that's all they have.
