Like Jason Bourne, Right?
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.
1922 LOCAL TIME
After their positively
uplifting reward from 7up, Steve & Allie get going with this...
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
Fly to the city of Penang,
Malaysia! Once you land, make your way to the Snake Temple, where
you will find your next clue.

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.
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!
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...
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
Make your way to the village of
Teluk Bahang. Once there, find the Koil Sri Singamuga Kaliamman
The remaining teams arrive
at the temple to start lifting incense.
Meanwhile, Jet & Cord
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
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?
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...
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...
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
THE PIT STOP!
