They Don't Even Understand Their Own Language!
May 2

For the first time ever, teams faced two Roadblocks in one leg. Jet & Cord came out on top. Louie & Michael came out on the end, but were spared elimination. Tonight, though, one team won't be so lucky, as we race toward the million dollar final.

PIT STOP
SHANGHAI, CHINA
SHANGHAI SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY MUSEUM
0802 LOCAL TIME

Jet & Cord get us going with...

ROUTE INFO

MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE GARDEN BRIDGE!

Make your way across town to the Garden Bridge, or as it's known in Chinese, Waibadu Qiao. The clue is halfway across.

You have some cash for this leg of the Race.

No one knows it by the English name, as Jet & Cord discover.

Meanwhile, Brent & Caite head out on their way. They find someone who knows where the Garden Bridge is, so they quietly slip into the lead.

JorDan get going toward the Garden Bridge.

Brent & Caite are the first to pick up this...

ROUTE INFO

MAKE YOUR WAY TO LONGHUA TEMPLE!

Make your way across town to the Longhua Temple and search for Arhat Hall, where you will find your next clue. You may NOT travel by taxi.

The best way to get to the temple is by train.

It's been two hours since the leg began for JorDan, and they have yet to find the bridge. They decide to hang out with Mike & Louie (who leave at 11a) until they could find the bridge.

Meanwhile, Brent & Caite find the temple and this...

ROADBLOCK

WHO THINKS THEY CAN SUM UP THE BUDDHA?

Inside the hall, one teammate must count all the golden Buddha statues. If you come up with the right number, 523, you will receive your next clue. If you miss, you have to wait ten minutes before submitting another guess.

Caite can be counted on... though it gets a mite crazy at a moment. She comes up with 520... UNDER.

It's taking the other teams a while to get to the temple... While it's taking the brothers and the cops a while just to get out of the thumb of the Pit Stop.

Caite tries 522... UNDER.

Jet & Cord get to the subway, while the other teams finally figure out that they're headed to Waibadu Bridge. They go in separate taxis, which give the cops a lead over the brothers... which gets the brothers a bit riled.

Will Caite be third time lucky? 524? OVER.

Jet & Cord find the temple. But they can't find the clue box.

Back to Caite. Still counting. Meanwhile, Jet starts counting. And the other two teams finally make it to the bridge.

Jet has a guess... 523. BINGO! And Caite's soon after.

ROUTE INFO

HOP A RIDE!

Take one of the marked motorcycles and ride to the Yuyuan Gardens, where you will find your next clue.

Meanwhile, the cops and JorDan take a train to the temple. The other two teams are left at... a shopping arcade. They find...

DETOUR

PORK CHOPS or PORK DUMPLINGS?

PORK CHOPS: Enter an art stone store and look through several hundred special stone stamps called chops for the two that have a pig on the bottom and one of each of their names in order to receive their clue from the shop owner.

PORK DUMPLINGS: Travel to Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant and deliver 10 orders of xiaolongbao across the market. Once done with the deliveries, you will receive your next clue.

The Cowboys go with Pork Chops. The Dating Models.... also go with Pork Chops. Brent has to go to the bathroom, which drives him crazy.

At the temple, Louie & Michael get...

SPEED BUMP

LOUIE & MICHAEL!

In a good luck ritual, you must both successfully toss a coin into an incense burner. Once you have done that, you will be able to continue on the Race course.

Meanwhile, Dan is going to sum up  the Buddha. As for the cops... you thought Supercoin was tough. They do finish, though, as Louie goes counting.

Back at the art stone store, Brent... finally goes to the bathroom.

JorDan get the right number and head on the motorcycle. Dan takes the sidecar, while Jordan rides bitch. True term.

Jet finds his stamp. Caite finds... Cord's. Brent finds his.

The cops get on their bikes and head to the market. Drive it like you stole it. Meanwhile, both leading teams complete the Detour and get to...

ROUTE INFO

MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE NEXT PIT STOP!

Make your way to the next Pit Stop, the Riverside Promenade in Pudong, China. WARNING! The last team to check in WILL BE ELIMINATED!

Jet & Cord find a cab first, Brent & Caite second.

Back on the bikes, it's a trip to the Detour

PIT STOP
PUDONG, CHINA
RIVERSIDE PROMENADE

It's a race to Phil and the happy local, the world's tallest man. Winners.... BRENT & CAITE! They're locked into the finals, and they win a trip to SPAIN!

Coming up in second: Jet & Cord.

JorDan get chopped, while Louie & Michael get... lost. JorDan find... Louie's. Just something to keep in mind as Louie & Michael show up.

JorDan finds the stamps they're looking for, and they head to the Pit Stop. Louie & Michael are still searching. But they too find their stamps.

So who'll make it to the mat first? It's going to be... DAN & JORDAN! As for Louie & Michael, it's so close, yet so far.

Your final three teams are set. It'll be the Dating Models versus the Cowboys versus the Brothers. Next week, we finally head home.
