He Made Me
Look Like Alice Cooper
Last time, the teams arrived in Beijing ready to
tackle some truly Olympian tasks. The sisters and the Adams continue their
bitter rivalry, while Victor & Tammy continue having the advantage of language.
Cara & Jaime are the first to see Phil, but Phil has a surprise... This is NOT
the Pit Stop!
DRUM TOWER OF GULOU
SOMETIME AT NIGHT
Cara & Jaime waste no time in getting the next
clue from Phil...
YOU'RE STILL RACING!
Make your way to Beihai Dong Min Street Mall and search
for your next clue.
Margie & Luke are the second to see Phil,
but they've made up a lot of ground.
Cara & Jaime are the first to arrive at
the next clue.
shops at the Beihai Street Mall for the Travelocity Roaming Gnome. The next clue
will be underneath.
NOTE: You must keep your gnome with you until the next Pit
Tammy & Victor are sent to the Street
Mall as Kisha & Jen arrive at the drum tower. And they don't believe
that they're still in the Race!
Margie & Luke are the first to find a
product-placement... err, a Travelocity Roaming Gnome.
Find the marked bicycles across
the moat from Gu Gong Xi Bei Jiao. Ride them to Dong Dan Di Tie Zhan
(Dong Dan subway station), by way of Tiananmen Square. Search near
one of the entrances of the subway station for your next clue.
Cara & Jaime also find a gnome, but will
they be able to find a taxi?
Victor can't believe he's carrying a
purse and a doll. But they're doing so in first place!
Cara & Jaime find a cabbie, but he
doesn't feel much like talking after almost being jabbed by a gnome's
Victor & Tammy are the first to find the
electric bikes, and as soon as Tammy knows how to work them, they're on
their way. All four teams have their bikes, and Victor & Tammy find time
to admire the military exercises.
They don't admire them too long, because
up next is a...
BEIJING OPERA or CHINESE WAITER?
BEIJING OPERA: Make your way to the Hu Guang He Guang
Opera House where you will make each other up as a princess and a gentleman at a
Chinese opera. When both are fully made up and clothes, present yourselves to
the opera master to receive your next clue.
CHINESE WAITER: Make yoru way to the Hu Guang He Guang
Restaurant where you will take orders given in Mandarin. Recite the orders to
the chef, who'll instruct his staff to prepare them. Once the orders have been
served, the patrons will give you your next clue.
Victor decides to wait tables. Kisha &
Jen play the opera, as do the remaining two teams.
Victor turns to Tammy and says "If we
can't do this task, Mom and Dad will kill us." Tammy takes the orders...
Good Luck Fish, Vegetarian Noodles, Fried Chicken, New Taste Beef, and
Golden Pork Spare Ribs. They end up ordering "Good Luck Squid".
Kisha & Jen... are scary. Margie & Luke
arrive at the same time as the sisters are getting made over. Awkward.
Kisha & Jen want to do something to
hinder them, but at the same time, they don't have to do much as once
Margie says that the makeup is too much, Luke throws up his hands and
quits. They're back in the hunt, though, after Margie learns to trust
Victor & Tammy finish their orders. Now
to service... and patronage has its merits...
MAKE YOUR WAY TO WENGCHANG GE!
Make your way on foot to Wengchang Ge, where you will find
your next clue.
CAUTION: U-TURN AHEAD!
Unlike the first U-turn of the course,
this will not be blind. Whoever chooses to use the U-turn must post
their own picture in addition to that of the team they choose to U-turn.
Victor & Tammy weigh their option. Margie
& Luke are the strongest. Cara &" Jaime are the most competitive. But in
the end, they'd rather not get into a foot race with Kisha & Jen, so
they elect to use the U-Turn on them.
Tammy posts the picture with a note:
"Sorry, I can't outrun you!!"
MAKE YOUR WAY TO DONG HUA MEN YI SHI!
Make your way to Dong Hua Men Yi Shi Night Market and search
for stall 68 where you will find your next clue!
Cara & Jaime... get lost. They end up at
the National Opera, not the Beijing Opera.
Victor & Tammy find the clue box in the
open air market..
WHO'S GOT A TASTE FOR ADVENTURE?
Eat a plate of Chinese delicacies, ranging from grasshoppers
to larva to scorpions to starfish. Once you've finished your plate, you will
receive your next clue.
Victor decides to do it... and eats it
before they have a chance to fry it. Woops. Oh well, at least frying it
makes it more palatable.
Beetle larva proves to be very difficult
to keep down.
Cara & Jaime still can't find a taxi.
They eventually find one and head back onto the Race course.
A couple of grasshoppers and a starfish
later, Victor is really wolfing down the Detour. Meanwhile, Margie &
Luke make a wrong turn at Albuquerque and Cara & Jaime get all pwettied
up (Hi, Jill).
Victor finishes breakfast and gets a
MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE PIT STOP!
Make your way to the next Pit Stop, Niao Chao (the Bird's
Nest), the Beijing National Stadium.
WARNING! The last team to check in WILL BE ELIMINATED!
The teams continue to walk back and forth
until they eventually run into each other. Turns out that it was in the
Opera House all this time.
Margie & Luke find the clue box. The
U-Turn could be the decider.
NIAO CHAO (BEIJING NATIONAL STADIUM)
Victor & Tammy run into Phil... this time
with a happy local. They are officially... Team #1! Not only are they
going to be racing for a million dollars, but they will be doing so with
a trip to the Galapagos Islands!
Margie decides to partake upon the local
Kisha & Jen return to the Opera House and
find Wengchang Ge. That's not all they find...
KISHA & JEN, you have been U-TURNED by VICTOR & TAMMY!
It's back to the kitchen for the sisters.
Speaking of, Margie gets to eatin'.
Speaking of, Kisha & Jen order up
"Monthly Use Taiwanese Chicken"... "Good Western Heads Lack Fish"...
"Oil Comes Again to Please the Mouth"... "Good Doll Basket Drum"... and
"Light Competition Red Dishes I've Played Before".
Margie finishes lunch and heads to the
Pit Stop... just as Kisha & Jen finally get their orders in.
And Cara and Jaime... are still lost.
They finally decide to retrace their steps at the opera.
Kisha & Jen get to the Roadblock... and
as Jen notes about her platter... "Hell naw, it doesn't take like
Jaime & Cara finally find what they were
looking for, and Cara's busy licking her wounds.
Meanwhile, Margie & Luke clock in at #2.
Jen keeps eating (and drinking... pay
attention. This is relevant). Cara & Jaime arrive and Cara decides to
partake. Cara thinks she can overtake Jen because she keeps spitting out
the exoskeletons and drinking the water. They finish, but they're trying
to find a taxi. The good news is that they've found the taxi. The bad
news... Jen has to pee.
Cara & Jaime have a quicker time finding
Jen still has to pee... She heads to the
porta-potties at the Bird's Nest as Cara & Jaime arrive. Will she finish
in time to catch up to the cheerleaders?
Nope. Jaime & Cara make it into the FINAL
THREE... Not only are they in, but they have a chance to make history.
After 13 seasons of the Amazing Race, Cara & Jaime could very well be
the first all-female team to take the title.
Seconds later, Kisha & Jen arrive in last
place. They've been eliminated. And Jennifer feels as guilty as hell,
saying that it's all on her. Kisha's not going to hold that against her.
Both have been strong and competitive. They've grown as sisters and as
people... but their journey ends here... so close to the finish line.
Next week... it's time to come home.
