I'm Like an
The remaining six teams stay in India and
embrace the local color... literally. Well, one team didn't, and that
team... Texas Exes Kelly & Christy... ended up on the short end, leaving
the Race in sixth.
The Race continues from...
PIT STOP - Humayun's Tomb; New Delhi, India
Nick & Starr are in a familiar place...
first... which means after the 12 hour break, they're off and running at
FLY TO ALMATY, KAZAKHSTAN!
Fly 1000 miles to Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Once landing, travel by taxi to Allel Agricultural Chicken
Factory and search the grounds for your next clue. You have
$403 for this leg of the Race.
Nick's vision of the future is
getting bleaker and bleaker, as if he's waiting for the other
shoe to fall.
Toni & Dallas are the second to head out,
ten minutes later. The only thing Dallas knows about Kazakhstan is "Borat",
which they won't mention to anyone... Is NIIIICE.
The two meet at the airport... and sparks
are flying between Dallas and Starr. AGAIN. They have to head out to the
airport to get tickets for the flight.
Terence & Sarah and Ken & Tina head out
in third and fourth. Andrew & Dan head out at midnight. Ken & Tina's
travel bag breaks in the tousle.
All the teams try and get on the same
flight. But three teams have filled up the flight.
1st flight to ALMATY (via Frankfurt)
Toni & Dallas
Ken & Tina
Nick & Starr
2nd flight to ALMATY (via Moscow)
Terence & Sarah
3rd flight to ALMATY (via Dubai)
Andrew & Dan
The first three teams arrive and head to
the chicken factory. It opens at 7:30, so we're camping out at the gate,
leaving the other teams to catch up. Well, all except Dandrew, who
arrive the next morning... and are lost on the way.
Now all five teams are at the chicken
factory, and it's truly an amazing... well, you know.
WHO'S FEELING PECKISH?
Enter the marked chicken shack and search
300 chickens for one of only seven golden eggs. When you
find a golden egg, you'll receive your next clue
But with the roadblock comes...
This is the second of only two Fast
Forwards in the entire Race.
Travel by taxi to a local restaurant,
where you will join a traditional Kazakh feast.
What they'll find out is that
they'll have to eat the fatback off of the rear end of a sheep.
Terence & Sarah and Nick & Starr head to the Fast Forward, while
the other teams go egg-hunting.
Andrew, Toni, and Tina start the
search... and Toni's the first to find her egg!
TRAVEL TO THE KOKTOBE ARCH!
Search the grounds for the giant crane
trucks. Then travel by truck to the Koktobe Arch, at the
foothills of the Tienshan Mountains.
Once there, follow the marked path to
the Mongol Warriors. Your warrior will lead you up the hill,
where you will wait for your next clue.
There are only two Mongol warriors, so
it's first come first served.
Andrew is the second to find his
egg, followed by Tina.
Meanwhile, Terence & Sarah and Nick &
Starr find the Kazakh smorgasbord and its waiting feast.
Party on, Fast Forward Style!
Each of you, order a traditional Kazakh entree on the menu and eat
your entire serving to win the Fast Forward Award.
So we order up a double serving of...
meat. And Terence is a vegetarian. Well, sounds like you have a problem,
and if you want the Fast Forward, you'll have to get over it.
So Terence grins and bears it.
Meanwhile, the other teams head to
Back at the feast, Starr learns the hard
way that she needs to chew her food before she eats it.
Toni & Dallas are the first to reach the
Mongols, and they lead them to a clearing, where a falconer summons his
bird... which is holding the next clue.
DETOUR - PLAY LIKE MAD or ACT LIKE FOOLS?
PLAY LIKE MAD: Travel by taxi to the
Museum of Folk Musical Instruments, where you must learn to
play a simple Kazakh tune using two traditional instruments,
the donra and the shankovic. When the instructor is
satisfied with your playing, he'll send you to the park to
play for tips. When you have earned the equivalent of $1.50,
you'll earn your next clue.
LIKE FOOLS: Travel by taxi to a children's puppet theatre,
find the wardrobe department, and put on a two-person cow
costume. Dressed like a cow, walk the streets of Almaty
until you reach a street corner, find a marked stall, and
drink a glass of milk. You'll find your next destination on
the bottom of your glass, Zeliyony Bazar. Find the marked
stall at the meat market, and deliver yourselves to the
butcher to receive your next clue.
Toni & Dallas are down with the cow.
Sarah is trying to get Terence to chew
his food. He can't. Nick's also having an issue keeping his food down.
Terence & Sarah give up and head back to the chicken factory.
Ken & Tina decide to act like fools.
Terence... throws up on the way back to
the Road Block.
Dandrew are lost on the way to the Arch.
Nick & Starr finish their meal and are
rewarded with this...
CONGRATULATIONS ON COMPLETING THE FAST
Travel by taxi to the
Pit Stop, the Old Square.
HURRY! The last team to check-in MAY
Sarah begins to search for her
Dandrew... STILL can't find their way to
And a special hello to all those tuning
in for Cold Case.
Sarah finds her egg. And Dandrew
finds their way.
PIT STOP - Old Square; Almaty,
Nick & Starr... are team number one!
They've won two waverunners for winning this leg of the Race.
Toni & Dallas head out to the streets as
one cow. Dallas is the head... and Toni... is not. They head to get
Meanwhile, Dandrew is heading up the pass
at the arch and getting into a scuffle over quickness.
Toni & Dallas miss the milk stand. Ken &
Tina find it, but they don't realize that their clue is on the bottom of
the glass. Let's go again, Tina. They find the clue, but want to change
out of the costume first.
Toni & Dallas find the bazaar and the
MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE PIT STOP!
Make your way on foot to the next Pit
Stop, Old Square in Almaty, Kazakhstan. You should bring
your cow head to the check-in.
WARNING! The last team to check-in MAY
They run into Ken & Tina, who are
out of costume and therefore ill-prepared for the Pit Stop.
Andrew & Dan are heading for the Detour,
while Terence & Sarah decide to act like fools. Turns out that everyone
wants to act the fool today.
Toni & Dallas are second at the Square.
Ken & Tina will be third. The other two cows are lost in the city
looking for milk. Andrew & Dan find it first. Both teams head to the
meat market... so where's the beef? Heh.
Dandrew head to the Pit Stop... via
TAXI... once they get to the Pit Stop, they have to go back in the cab
and hoof it by foot. The question now... will they get there in time?
Terence & Sarah are already at the market. Dandrew argue all the way,
while Terence & Sarah work on finding Phil and the happy local. Who'll
get there first?
It's Andrew & Dan. They're NOW officially
That leaves Terence & Sarah. They're the
last team to arrive. ... and the next team eliminated from the Race. It
was the Fast Forward that did it in. Terence couldn't stomach the
challenge, but the things that the two of them got together were perhaps
worth more than that.
