Me While I Singe My Skull
Seven teams left New Zealand for
Cambodia, where they encountered malfunctioning gas pumps, a city
submerged by water, and a hidden room of echoes in a race to a temple.
Six of them made it on time. The seventh, Aja & Ty, are headed back
The Race continues from
PIT STOP - Bayon Temple; Siem Reap,
As a reminder, Terence & Sarah are on a
30-minute penalty, meaning that they will head out in fifth 30 minutes
after their arrival time on the other side of the clock, not third.
After the 12 hour rest period, Nick &
Starr, the first to arrive at 11:22a local time, are the first to head
off on their next great adventure at 11:22p with this...
FLY TO DELHI, INDIA!
Fly more than 2000 miles to
Delhi, India. Then travel by taxi to Semroop Port and find
Moon Light Motors, where you will get your next clue. You

for this leg of the Race.
Starr thinks that India is going
to be just as shocking as Cambodia.
Toni likes Starr & Nick a lot, but the
flirting between Starr and Dallas is a bit awkward. That's putting it
Nick & Starr and Toni & Dallas make
arrangements on the same flight and ask for internet service.
KEN & TINA are next out the gate,
followed by Kelly & Christy. They love that things happen for a reason.
Back at Tourex, we have four tickets
handed and one couple entering.
At 12:05a, Terence & Sarah finally head
out. That leaves "Dandrew" to bring up the rear. And everyone is still
at Tourex, where Dallas is trying to hit on Starr with the worst wingman
ever... his mother.
Meanwhile, Ken discovers use for Google
Maps #115: finding Moon Light Motors.
And it looks as if everyone is on...
BANGKOK AIRWAYS FLIGHT to DELHI
Nick & Starr are first out of the gate,
followed by Ken & Tina, Toni & Dallas, Andrew & Dan, Kelly & Christy
(whose short shorts get the attention of the locals), and Terence &
Sarah. As usual, it's hot, traffic is crazy, and you must share the road
with a cow.
Ken & Tina run into Toni & Dallas on the
road. Ken thinks that Tina's "always right" on the road despite Kenny's
Nick & Starr are the first to Moon Light
Motors and this clue.
WHO'S GOT AN ARTISTIC FLAIR?
Help India's taxi industry go green...
Mask the yellow auto rickshaw panels
and paint the black ones green. This will indicate to the
people of India that these auto rickshaws have been
converted to run on natural gas. Once the foreman has
determined your work to be satisfactory, he will give you
your next clue.
Starr starts painting, as does
Meanwhile, the other teams are lost. Toni
& Dallas are third to the motors, as Nick points out that Dallas'
budding romance with Starr is "kinda cute".
Kelly & Christy arrive to start painting.
Ken & Tina... are still lost.
Starr's the first one done taping. So
it's time to paint. Andrew's the second. They both note that Terence is

their way, while Starr finishes. Time for the sibs to play
catchup. And apparently they're the first to catch a cab.
Back at the rickshaws, Toni & Dallas
finish up and hail a cab, followed by Ken & Tina. And their taxi waits
for them! Nice guy.
Kelly & Christy are next out to the
hotel, leaving Terence & Sarah to tough it out.
Meanwhile, Nick & Starr are first to the
hotel. And first to the doorman. And first to this.
DETOUR - LAUNDER MONEY or LAUNDER
LAUNDER MONEY: Make your way to a banquet
hall and create a necklace made of rupees (Indian money).
The necklace must have 10 individual rupee notes that add up
to 780 rupees. You'll have to find ways to exchange your
stash of rupee notes for the right combination of rupee
notes. Then when you are done, find one of the waiting
grooms and trade your necklace in for the next clue.
LAUNDER CLOTHES: Make your way to a laundry shop, where you
will have to choose an ironing station and a traditional
charcoal-heated iron to press 20 pieces of clothing. When
the laundry woman feels that the clothing has been
adequately pressed, she will hand you your next clue.
Nick & Starr... don't know what they're
going to do. They iron. Dallas decides to follow them. Because he's a
man in love. Or something.
Meanwhile, Ken & Tina are still lost.

laundry, as do Dandrew.
Terence & Sarah make their money the old
fashioned way... they staple it on... or something. them and Ken & Tina

PIT STOP: Baha'i House; Delhi, India
Much in the same manner as last week, Nick & Starr are the first to enter the
Hidden Temple and are greeted by Olmec, and by Olmec, we mean a happy
"Nick & Starr... you are team number
ONE!" As the winners, they've each won... an electric car! Good prize
for a good leg. Starr considers herself blessed to have someone like
Nick in her life.
Kelly & Christy are the second team to
head over to the Pit Stop. And they clock in as team #2.
Meanwhile, Ken & Tina and Terence & Sarah
look for a groom while Toni & Dallas are looking for a House. All three

nothing. And here comes the wind to make things even MORE difficult.
And Ken & Tina are chased by dogs.
