Penn Cambodia, Here We Come!
As we begin the next leg of the Amazing Race, the
teams have just spent a few days taking in Vietnamese culture, such as water
dragons... balloons and toys in the park... and recycling electronics.
Unfortunately for Marcy & Ron, it was all for naught as they were on the next
plane back to America. Today, one team will break the cardinal rule and join

Flight Time & Big Easy are on the mat

there, make your way to the Foreign Correspondence Club and whisper
to the assignments editor for your next assignment. He will give you
your next clue.

One by one, the teams make their way past
the bustling nightlife of Vietnam to get to the airport. The Trotters
are first to the airport, only to discover that all flights to Cambodia
will leave TOMORROW MORNING.
And that only Vietnam Airlines are offering
flights to Cambodia. Zev & Justin are the last to arrive at the counter.
They and Lance & Keri arrive to find out that the 12:25 flight is full. They're

PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA
And a special hello to the three of you
who are tuning in for Three Rivers.
The teams head to the FCC in a cab
caravan, with Lance & Keri in the back.
At the FCC, the teams get this clue...
Sam & Dan first.
The woman in
this picture has a hotel suite named for her.
Find this same
picture in that hotel.
Their next location... the Hotel le
Royal. The woman in this photo... Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The teams
know where the hotel is, but can they find the picture? Gary & Mike are
the only ones who didn't need to ask anyone to get the picture right.
Back at the FCC, Mika keeps saying "task" instead
of "assignment"... That turns the journalist off. Eventually, he says
"assignment" and joins the other Racers.
Once they arrive at the Kennedy Suite, they have
no time to sleep in the same bed that Jackie O slept in, because they're about
to head into a...
COVER or WRAP?
COVER: Locate a helmet stand and
using only your powers of persuasion, convince a family of four to
buy them at $10. Then trade the money to the shop owner for your
WRAP: Find the Russian Market and
locate stalls 980 and 981, where the shopkeeper will hand you an
intricately woven silk scarf. Then search high and low throughout
the market for a woman who is wearing the exact same scarf. She will
hand you your next clue.
Zev & Justin head to the Russian Market,
and while they're in the taxi, they discuss karma with the cab driver,
saying that telling the others to go to the wrong place is probably bad
ju-ju. Pay attention. This is relevant.
Sam & Dan head to the Russian Market as well.
Seems like every team is going to the Russian Market. Lance & Keri, though, are
going to COVER.
Meanwhile, Zev & Justin are the first to find a
matching scarf. When the shopkeeper finds out, she's more than happy to hand
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
WAT TOUL TOM PONG!
Travel by foot to Wat Toul Tom
Pong and search the grounds for your next clue.
Zev & Justin decide to have the taxi
drive while they walk behind. Sam & Dan aren't far behind.
Flight Time & Big Easy get some help from some
happy not-so-locals (they're on holiday from PA).
Zev & Justin are the first to arrive at the wat
WHO'S READY TO GO
Wearing a mask and a tail, one
person must complete three monkey maneuvers, as demonstrated by
their royal monkey master. If you can keep up your simian act during
the maneuvers, the monkey master will give you your next clue.
Lance & Keri start selling helmets on the
other side of town, while the other teams look for matching silks. While
the teams head to the wat after matching said silks, Zev is still trying
to find his inner monkey.... to the point of passing out.
Sam & Dan take over the lead with their monkey
maneuvers and get this...
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
THE PIT STOP!
Travel by taxi to the next Pit
Stop, Wat Phnom in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
WARNING! The last team to
check-in MAY BE ELIMINATED!
Back at the market, Maria & Tiffany
finally find the booths. Lance & Keri find it difficult to sell helmets.
Flight and Ericka decide to go bananas... and
it's proving to be rather easy.
Meghan & Cheyne find their scarf in the market
and hurry to the shrine, as do Gary & Matt.
Lance & Keri finally sell their helmets and get
on the way.
Flight and Ericka finish the Roadblock and head
to the Pit Stop, while Meghan and Gary find their power primate... And Maria &
Tiffany finally find what they're looking for, as do Mika & Canaan. Now they're
fighting to avoid last place.
PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA
Zev & Justin are the first to arrive at
the crash mat.... Sam & Dan are close behind at #2, and Flight & Big are
in at #3.
But not all is a pocketful of sunshine for the
race leaders, as Zev & Justin realize that Zev's passport is not amongst their
personal effects. They return to the mat with the news, and Phil notifies them
that unless they find that passport, they'll be DQed.
So right now, Sam & Dan are the race leaders
unless Zev & Justin can find those passports. They find Justin's, but they'll
have to go back onto the race course and find that passport before the last team
They call for their cabbie to come get them so
they can look around the city.
Meanwhile, the monkeys line up to head to the Pit
Stop, starting with Brian & Ericka. Then comes Gary & Matt... Meghan & Cheyne...
Lance & Keri... Mika & Caanan... and Maria & Tiffany.
Zev & Justin have NOT yet found Zev's passport,
which means they are automatically eliminated. Justin blames himself, but Zev is
far more optimistic, saying... "It just happens." They didn't want to go out
this way, especially since they've run a good race up to this point. At least
they'll be better friends because of it.
