You're Like Jason Bourne, Right?
April 4

Last week, the Racers flew to Seychelles, where coconuts and donkeys were enough to drive one team to breaking. It wasn't Steve & Allie, who came in first. Meanwhile Jet & Cord will have to overcome a Speed Bump if they want to stay in the running.

PIT STOP
MAHE, SEYCHELLES
KOTOR BEACH
1922 LOCAL TIME

After their positively uplifting reward from 7up, Steve & Allie get going with this...

ROUTE INFO

MAKE YOUR WAY TO PENANG!

Fly to the city of Penang, Malaysia! Once you land, make your way to the Snake Temple, where you will find your next clue.

BUT FIRST you must board the 2am ferry, Twin Spirit to the island of Mahe, then drive to the Seychelles airport.

You have $128 for this leg of the Race.

Steve spends some off-time trying to buy some more luggage with the money he has. Meanwhile, the teams discuss one team in particular... Carol & Brandy. They're threats. They need to be eliminated. Caite will U-turn them the first chance they get. Meanwhile, Louie & Michael help Steve out with some underwear. Nice.

PENANG, MALAYSIA

All teams depart and head to the Snake Temple. Brent & Caite lead, Jet & Cord are in last. JorDan gets the crazy taxi that jets them to the lead!

DETOUR

BUDDHIST TRADITION or CHINESE CUSTOM?

BUDDHIST TRADITION: Make your way to a Buddhist temple, Tien Kong Than, choose 12 giant incense stick, then lug it up 150 steps to the top. Once there, light the sticks until the ceremonial torch is lit. Once that is lit, you will receive your next clue.

CHINESE CUSTOM: Make your way to an esplanade and choose a chenge, a giant flagpole paraded to celebrate Chinese New Year. You must balance the flags on your forehead, walking 120 feet across the park. If you can cover the distance, you will receive your next clue.

JorDan forget to stop their cabbie from leaving. Luckily, they pick up another one. Everyone else gets a cab, but Jet & Cord miss theirs.

JorDan head to the temple, alongside Louie & Mike and Carol & Brandy. Louie & Mike get the supercab, so they're into first. Until Brandy & Carol sneak up in front of them.

Brent & Caite go to the temple as Carol & Brandy start. Back in traffic, Steve & Allie decide to abandon their cab and head to the Detour on foot. Meanwhile, Jet & Cord balance flagpoles. Turns out to be easier than previously thought, you know, once you lean it right.

Back on the road, the running teams decide to follow Mike & Louie's cab.

But Jet & Cord have gone from worst to first...

ROUTE INFO

MAKE YOUR WAY TO TELUK BAHANG!

Make your way to the village of Teluk Bahang. Once there, find the Koil Sri Singamuga Kaliamman Temple.

The remaining teams arrive at the temple to start lifting incense.

Meanwhile, Jet & Cord find...

SPEED BUMP

JET & CORD!

Make your way to the Tropical Spice Garden and find a lady making spiced tea. Using your sense of smell, determine which of the teas is prepared from the bowl of crushed spiced. Serve that tea to a meditating guru. Once you have made the right choice, you will be able to go back to the Race course.

Louie's cardio ends up giving him fits.

At the garden, Jet's sinuses start acting up, but the spice tea is enough to power through. Is it enough to get the tea right on the first try?.. .... Nope. Second try? YES!

Back on the road... Steve & Allie and JorDan are at the wrong temple. Steve & Allie can't find the other temple, so they're lane-switching to the flagpoles.

Jet & Cord find...

ROAD BLOCK

WHOSE LIFE COULD USE A SPLASH OF COLOR?

In a Hindu ritual for good luck, smash coconuts until you find one with brightly colored milk, then using the coconut, you must make a float to hand to the guru, who will give you your next clue.

Back at the Detour, Brent & Caite are the first to light their incense. Carol & Brandy are #2. Louie & Michael are #3...

And Steve & Allie are balancing flagpoles. They can't, so they decide to go back to the temple... but first, they have to find their cab.

Brent & Caite... are lost.

Jet & Cord cast their float off to sea and get their next clue...

ROUTE INFO

MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE PIT STOP!

Make your way to the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, the Pit Stop for this Leg of the Race. WARNING! The last team to check in MAY BE ELIMINATED!

Steve finally gets to the temple while all the other teams are at the Roadblock

PIT STOP
PENANG, MALAYSIA
PINANG PERANAKAN MANSION

Phil and the happy local greet Jet & Cord as team #1! They win a trip to Maui, and in a historic first, they are the first team to go from last to first with a Speed Bump!

Carol & Brandy are the next team to head to the Pit Stop... followed by Louie & Michael... ... in second and third.

Back at the Detour, JorDan get their next clue, while Steve & Allie are asked to keep it up.

Brent & Caite head to the Pit Stop.

Steve & Allie finish the Detour, while JorDan's cabbie decides that he needs gas.

Brent & Caite take down the four-spot. Which leaves the last two teams to race for the Pit Stop.

... and it's... Dan & Jordan for #5. Unfortunately Steve & Allie are just a little short and are out of the Race. Allie's reduced to tears, while Steve and her had the time of his life. They worked so hard, but unfortunately their Amazing Race ends in Malaysia.
