The Amazing Race (2001) s26e08 Episode Script

Moment of Truth

1 Phil: Previously on "The Amazing Race".
Seven couples race to Monaco in style.
I feel like James Bond right now.
Phil: At the Roadblock, some of the ladies pounded the pavement I'm sweating.
while their partners enjoyed the highlight.
While Laura was running around look for chocolates, I was just kicking back at the yacht.
Phil: At the Detour, Matt and Ashley braved the slack line.
- I love you, baby.
- I love you! I love you! Phil: It was anybody's game as all seven teams raced to the Pit Stop.
- That's the church.
- That's not the one.
I don't know how this is so hard.
Please be going the right way.
Use your judgment.
We'll talk about this later.
- I need to focus.
- I'm sure we will.
- Left, right? - Oh, my God.
Phil: In the end Hayley and Blair got the surprise win.
And Jack and Jackie were handed a shocking loss.
I'm really sorry to tell you you have been eliminated from the race.
I'm really proud of us.
We did great.
I'm going to give him my number.
Phil: Six teams remain.
Who will be eliminated next? Oh, God.
 All right.
We're here in Monaco.
Whoo! We're on date night.
- Wow.
- Told you.
This is nice.
This is unreal.
Look at this view.
I think I'm moving here.
Good bye Los Angeles.
I think this has been the prettiest stop.
For sure.
I think we're getting along better than most of the other teams.
We both have a mutual respect for one another.
And we genuinely are having a great time.
We know there's more cool stuff to come and we just want to be on the this ride all the way to the end.
Thank you, Monaco.
Thank you, Date Night.
Leg 6 completed.
On to leg 7.
Phil: Having won the last leg, Hayley and Blair are the first to leave at 12:35 AM.
Fly to Windhoek, Namibia.
Our couples will now fly for 10 hours over the length of the African continent to Namibia, home to what's considered to be the oldest desert in the world.
When they arrive, they'll sign up for another flight on one of six foot planes.
I see one.
I see one.
- Taxi! - Off to a great start.
It feels pretty awesome to finally lead in first place.
We have some confidence from the last leg, we're going to carry it big time to this leg.
I think we've worked out our communication issues.
I have faith that we will do as well in this leg as we did last leg.
- Right? - Right.
- All right.
- That was just a preview.
All right, babe.
Fly to Windhoek, Namibia.
- We're going to Africa.
- Oh, interesting.
All right.
- Airport, please.
- Airport? The last leg was definitely a hard leg.
We could definitely improve on transportation.
But if we bicker or have a tense moment it's pretty minor.
Or it's been pretty minor thus far.
Who knows what the future will hold? We have to fly on this one.
Oh, yeah.
Everybody is on the same flight.
Fly to Windhoek, "Nambia".
All right, let's go.
I've never even heard of this country.
- Here we go.
- Let's go.
- Taxi? - Airport? - Namibia.
- Oh, my God.
We're going to the airport.
- We're going to Africa.
- Ok.
All right.
So we're leaving at 9:55 in the morning.
There are three blind date teams and three teams that were matched up coming into it.
So it will be interesting to see who can hang on to the end.
We'll just find a place to relax.
We have a long night before we leave.
Let's go find a place to lay down.
I guess we're sleeping here tonight.
- I cannot wait.
- So excited to - We're excited to win.
- To get the butterflies again.
Thank you.
Everybody's boarding and we just can't wait to get on there to get some on bush planes.
All right.
Ooh la, la.
We'll take number one.
- Hello.
- Let's go.
Erindi 2.
Are you the second one to leave? - Come on.
- Right here, babe.
Right here.
We'll take number four.
We've got five.
Right, Africa.
We're going to take a bush plane.
- Get six.
- We're six.
Awesome, because we wanted to be comfortable on a plane, we're last.
- You gotta chill out.
- No, I'm serious, though.
We have to be more diligent.
So we're both pretty upset starting last, even though we started the leg first.
Somebody wanted to be comfortable and get these seats off to the side.
So, I said we should sit a couple of rows in the middle but we had to be comfortable today.
The saving grace is Hayley has a big crush on her pilot So, she has completely forgotten about all that once she saw his face.
He's absolutely gorgeous, by the way.
Bush plane, Africa.
A bush plane? I'm nervous.
We're about to get on some propeller planes and go maybe on a safari, but we have no idea.
We're the first plane taking off.
Should give us at least a couple of minutes lead.
Any little bit of a lead helps, so Five-minutes separation from them.
That's cool.
- Matt wants to see animals.
- I want to see the lions.
I'm excited to see some crazy big cats.
And we're in the air.
Whoo! I'm a little frightened.
This is actually a little scary.
I've never been on a small plane like this.
But I don't know, it's kind of Aagh! Because there's the hot pilot taking us into this, it's like 100,000 times cooler than it already is.
Let's do this.
It's a really little plane with a really hot pilot.
I'm just pumped to finally get off the ground and get the challenges rolling.
Look where we are, in the middle of nowhere in Africa.
Oh, my goodness.
There are the other planes behind us.
I-I think that's Matt and Ashley right there ahead of us.
You saw them in there? Our guy is passing them? Faster.
Don't let them pass us.
Don't let them pass us.
There you go.
We're circling for our landing right now.
The guy behind the stick is a whiz.
Dirt runway too? Super legit.
Oh, my God, this is terrifying.
My palms are sweating.
Ready? Drive yourselves to the Bushmen Village along the way.
Pick up a salt lick.
Let's do it, babe.
This is us.
You're on the opposite side of the road, ok? Left.
Phil: After traveling almost 24 hours from Europe, Aly and Steve are the first team who will take on a challenge here in Namibia.
Drive yourselves to the Bushmen Village along the way and pick up a salt lick.
Oh, my God.
We're landing in the middle of nowhere.
- Landing on the middle of nowhere.
- All right, all right.
I'm going to pee my pants.
- Where we're going? - Our clue.
Drive yourselves to the Bushmen Village along the way.
Pick up a salt lick.
This is going to be something right here.
Yeah! Route Info.
Date Night.
Follow the road signs to San Village.
Date Night.
- Third time.
Oh, my God.
- Third time in a row.
We're going to get sick of Date Night.
We just need to be looking for the salt lick.
- What are salt licks? - I don't know.
We're going to find them, though.
We are in the middle of the bush and we're looking for a salt lick.
Right here, salt licks.
Good, girl.
Does it say anything about where to put them? - No, it just says to pick one up.
- Ok.
Let's go, so hopefully another team misses them.
They're heavy too.
Like 100 pounds.
Let's go before another team comes.
What do salt licks look like? - Should be a big brick of salt.
- Like that? Stop, right here, right here.
Stop, stop, stop.
How many do we get? Just one? Just one.
I'm not used to driving like this, baby.
Just crazy.
Oh, wait.
Stop the car.
Salt licks.
- Oh, right there.
Right there.
- This is it.
Should we get a small one or big one? - This is good.
Let's go.
- All right.
We're in Africa.
This is crazy.
What do salt licks look like? Do you know? I know what it is, but I don't know exactly.
It's like what they give to horses.
- Bushmen Village.
- That way? - This is it.
- Now we search for our clue.
Oh, my God.
- This is so great.
- It's fantastic.
This is going to be wild.
This is great.
Right there, get a clue.
- Oh, weird.
- Good work.
- It's right there.
- Ok.
Who's feeling grassy? We've been switching off Roadblocks, so you are.
Ok, I'll do it.
I have to crack it open? Baby, you're going the kill this.
Help the Bushmen build a grass hut to earn your next clue.
Phil: Namibia's indigenous San people are known as Bushmen and have been surviving in this hostile environment for more than 2,000 years.
Teams can now learn one of their survival skills by helping them build shelter.
Starting from scratch, they must use sticks and dry grass to build a traditional San hut.
When the Bushman camp has been properly built, they'll receive their next clue.
- Okay.
- Babe, you've got it.
There's a finished example for reference.
I have not a damn clue what I'm doing.
Steve would've been way better at this.
The decisions have already been made.
Aly's good at so many things.
She's smart, she's determined.
- She'll do a great job.
- I mean, I'm going to get it done.
I just prefer to not.
Who's feeling grassy? You're feeling grassy? - Yep.
- All right.
- You got this.
- Let's do it.
I hate you for making me do this.
No, babe.
You're killing it.
You want me to dig anywhere here? Just use a stick? Cool.
I knew it was going to be something like this and he's better at building because he knows how to do that.
I did the Roadblock when I shouldn't have.
I don't dig holes very often, and my arms aren't the strong part of my body.
For some reason, he wanted me to do it.
- Jelani, come on.
Hurry up.
- Over here, over here.
- Who is feeling grassy? - You are.
Help the Bushmen build a grass hut.
You got this one, baby.
Hi, everyone.
Oh, my gosh.
And we have another stick, which is not fun.
I can't even get this thing started.
- What's the problem? - I can't even turn the key.
Is the clutch in? Are you in neutral? Uh-huh.
Parking brake on? Are these the wrong keys? We're on the last bush plane fight out of Windhoek, Namibia to the Game Reserve.
We've got to make up some time and be really good today.
We definitely have been having trouble driving, but we've never had a problem starting the car, so Thank you so much.
That was a great landing.
Thank you.
All right.
He was gorgeous, my goodness.
- Let's do this.
- Heck, yeah.
- You can drive this, right? - Yeah.
What is going on? Ooh! This sucks.
You're kidding me? There goes Blair and Hayley.
What is going on? I can't even turn the key.
- You want me to try? - Yeah.
So stressful and confusing.
This isn't probably the right No, that isn't the right key.
I wasn't using the right key.
If I knew this was building, I would have done it, babe.
You were like "Oh, yeah.
Aly's feeling grassy".
I don't know even know what that means.
Well, we've been switching off Roadblocks, so This is incredible.
I've been watching what they're doing and look at that, wow.
Jelani, hurry up, hurry up.
This good? Good? And be as helpful as possible.
Is that what it looks like? I'm going to look at the example.
Very impressive.
- Good luck, Tyler, have fun.
- Ok.
Like this? You dig individual holes and they took these sticks and they bent the sticks, so they wouldn't snap.
The next step was putting all the branches together, so it forms a dome shape and tie it with twine.
Then, when you got your dome structure together, next step was filling all the straw around it.
Can you please just hurry? There are some other teams here? We didn't get a salt lick.
We don't know that this is not a salt lick here.
Go, go, go.
All right, let's go and ask? - The salt lick was that before this? - It was before this.
It's right near the beginning.
All right, come on, Blair.
Do you have an idea where it was? Good guy.
Hey, hey, hey, come here.
Make sure that we were supposed to get a salt lick before we got here.
I'm so mad at you.
I'm picturing you while I'm doing this.
Did you guys pick up a salt lick on the way? - Is it down the road? - Yep.
The Olympians got one.
I think we should go and come back.
- Uh-huh.
- I'll be right back.
Ok? Let's go.
- They've got it on the way in.
- I didn't see it.
I didn't see it either.
- They left.
- Who left? - Laura and Tyler.
- Maybe they didn't bring the salt lick.
- Keep your eyes peeled.
- I am.
We're fine.
I'm going to build this sucker.
- You build it really fast, ok? - I can build faster than Blair.
I really can make up time at the Roadblock.
This might be it.
Yes, I see it, salt licks.
- You don't see like a clue or anything? - No, just the salt licks.
Let's go.
Check it out.
Lick it.
If it tastes like salt, it is a salt lick.
Oh, God.
Good, good, good.
That looks like Tyler and Laura.
It looks like they're getting out to get a salt lick as well.
It's always nice when we're back in business due to someone else's error as well.
I'm going to pull in right up here.
- Ready? - Yes.
Let's rock and roll.
All right, let's do this.
Got my salt.
Here we go, here we go.
You got it, Tyler.
There it is.
There it is.
Who's feeling grassy? I am.
Help the bushmen build a grass hut.
I'm here to help you.
Who's feeling grassy? - You got this, babe.
- Ok.
I got it.
I think this is accurate, but Salt licks set us a little bit behind, but I think we're going to be fine.
All right, Blair.
Build them a little house.
Oh, my goodness.
They're so cute.
I'm used to dealing with sick kids all the time, so to see well kids, kids play it just makes me so happy.
Look at this little kid over here.
There's a baby.
Oh, baby.
What's your name? I am playing with the children while Blair builds the hut, so this is really fun for me.
Yes, I'm talking about you.
Yes, I'm talking about you.
Oh, I'm stuck.
Are you all right? Ow.
Thank you.
This right here.
There we go.
He's hammering with the stone.
To cut the rope fully he's hammering it with the stone to get it even shorter.
Tyler, you're killing it.
You're doing so good.
Oh, bend it.
He's bending them, so they're all concaves to form the roof.
Some of these have thorns.
Like this? - That? Good? - Yeah! Whoo! I love this guy.
- I know, this guy's great.
- Yeah.
Tyler, you're having a great time.
Making friends.
Tie here? Like this? Tie it up? Right here? Oh, yeah.
Strong like you.
We're getting to the sticks, nice.
Yay, the stick.
Babe, yours is like perfect.
Here, you go, my man.
Tyler's actually I think we're ahead most of the other teams.
I guess he has good skills with building houses.
He has a special skill I wasn't aware of.
These sticks are sharp.
They got little thorns all over them.
I'm bleeding like all over.
- Yah, yah.
- Yah, yah.
- Vroom, vroom.
- Yah, yah, yah.
Your butt looks great in those spandex, babe.
Thanks, babe.
Oh, yeah! Yah! All right, come here.
Drive yourself to Ranger Headquarters and look for the head ranger to receive your next clue.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Yay! - Let's go.
- Ok.
Finishing touches.
Need more up here? Good? - Yay! - Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
- Thank you.
- Yay! Thank you.
Thank you.
- Good? - Yeah, yay! - Thank you so much.
- Thank you, guys.
- Thanks.
- Thank you.
Thank you so much.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you, guys.
Even after forgetting the salt lick, we made it out of there first because Tyler is a rock star.
Right now, I believe we're in second place.
- Tyler is right in front of us.
- Ranger H.
Q, here we are.
- Ranger Headquarters there.
- Good call.
- Let's get out? - Yep.
- Grab your salt.
- Ok, got it.
Got to go to the head ranger.
Grab your salt.
Come on.
- You can just put it on there.
- Thank you.
All right.
There you go.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Come on.
Detour, Track or Pack? Phil: Namibia is the second least densely populated country on earth, giving wild life here free range.
This Detour lets our teams get up close with two of this country's iconic animals.
Elephants and wild dogs.
"Track" gives our couples a chance to play the role of game warden, using telemetric technology to locate an elephant.
Once they find this magnificent a field guy will hand them their next clue.
The biggest predators for this endangered African painted dogs are humans.
"Pack" gives our couples a chance to help keep them alive by feeding them.
They must prepare a meal of wildebeest meat, drive into the wilderness and then serve up these delicious food to these hungry dogs.
When the dogs have had their dinner, teams will receive their next clue.
We're doing Pack.
We're doing Pack.
- We're going Pack.
- Pack.
I love dogs.
Holy schnikes.
Look at that meat.
- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my gosh.
So, the main concern is please, we don't need bones in the meat.
Oh, my God.
Those are hyenas.
Look at those freaking hyenas.
- Hi.
- Hey, guys.
- Do you have your salt lick? - Yes.
- There you go.
- Awesome, thank you.
We're going to do Pack.
How much of the meat do we need to get? The piece of meat needs just like my hand.
- Here's the knife.
- Ok.
I'll go first.
You want fatty stuff? It's down here.
This wouldn't be the worst time to use the Express Pass, 'cause we'd be in first.
Using the Express Pass crossed my mind like a hot second, but then, I was like, no, we're doing well enough, we should try to knock this off.
So we've got to get a big chunk.
I don't really eat meat, so I'm really grossed out.
But it's interesting.
I'm excited to feed dogs.
Ok, there we go.
We've got the meat.
- Don't get the bone.
- Don't get the bone, ok.
Just the steak.
Is there bone on the bottom? - Nope.
No bones.
- Beautiful, ok.
No bones, no bones.
That's it.
You got the big ones and I got the little ones.
That's a nice hunk of meat right there.
Whoo! - Meat smells like money.
- Oh, yeah! I've never been a butcher, but my grandfather was a butcher.
My uncle was a butcher.
So I knew how to cut meat.
- Look at that meat, baby.
- Welcome to Africa.
Aaah! [Laughter.]
everyone else's salt lick.
This is freaking hilarious.
We brought the biggest one.
We thought we needed a full one.
- There you go.
- Thank you, sir.
There's no Pack available.
There's only Track available.
Ok, then we're going to do Track.
- Then we'll do track.
- Let's do this.
Yeah, we couldn't do the other one, because all three teams chose it.
Freaking sucks.
Oh, baby.
That's what I'm talking about.
It's making me hungry.
- Hurry.
More meat.
- I'm coming.
Here, cut this out.
I've never worked as a chef, I don't cook.
Never touched red meat, so this is a first.
This is our device.
- Antenna always open.
- Ok.
How it works, you've got three buttons on top.
Volume button always at the maximum.
It makes quite a loud noise at the beginning.
So, where you have the highest bars, that's where your animal should be.
Good, up on the side.
- That side.
- Ok.
Let's go find an elephant.
Keep it going, Blair.
Keep it going, Blair.
Try to make up some time.
We're next to last.
You want me to get more sticks? I don't really know how to communicate.
Hopefully we'll get to part where we're finishing up soon, and get out of here.
Hurry, hurry, hurry.
- This is so hard.
- We've got to beat them.
- We've got to get past them.
- Keep it going, Blair.
Keep it going, Blair.
As quick as you can.
Actually really hard work.
It hurts my hands.
Feels like my finger nails are going to fall off.
Yes? - Good? - Yes.
Drive yourselves to Ranger Headquarters and look for the head ranger - To receive your next clue.
- All right, let's go.
Blair and Hayley passed us again.
God, this is bad.
We're the only team left here now.
Definitely a tedious task.
I'd have probably already ripped up the sticks, I'd have been so frustrated, but we've been last on Detour and Roadblocks before, and we still struck through it.
Just got to keep moving along.
I think I found our new occupation.
- Hell, yeah.
- Being a butcher.
More meat, babe.
You got a bunch to go.
There it is.
Get the meat.
Get the meatiest part.
These dogs are going to love this meat.
- Babe.
- Oh, babe.
- All right.
All right.
- Honey, you do We eat food all the time.
- Ok, Tyler.
More meat.
- I know.
I know.
- Do you see - Ranger Headquarters.
I see the sign for it.
Oh, my God, we are so far behind.
Detour, Track or Pack.
Let's do Pack.
We're packing.
All right.
There's no more Pack available.
- There's only Track available.
- Only Track.
All right.
So we're doing Track.
Are you ok using the radio, Blair? - Yeah.
- You sure? - Yeah.
- Ok.
- You're ok with it for sure? - Hayley, I've said that a few times.
You don't have to take an attitude about it, I'm serious.
We're really far behind right now.
Right now we have a transmitter device, which essentially will lock us into a signal that's being transmitted by a pole on an elephant.
I hope we find one fast, because I just want to see it.
That's why, not for the race purposes, just because this is so cool.
Yeah, stand straight up.
And just rotate slowly.
Stop right there.
Can you hold it any higher, babe? Give me this.
And you take this.
There's a giraffe too over there, babe.
Oh, there's a giraffe.
That's so cool.
Tell me what you see because I can't see.
One beep which is three.
He's that direction.
- Come on, babe, we gotta move fast.
- What do we have to do? I want you to take that, because I need to sit down.
You didn't tell me that.
More meat? More meat.
Hurry, hurry.
Go grab more meat.
- Done.
- Let's go feed some dogs.
- You got it.
- That's a lot of meat.
Thank you.
- Good.
Are we good? - Come on.
- Just one more.
- Oh, my God.
- Ok.
- Ok.
Ready? We're about to feed wild dogs in Africa.
I know.
It's awesome.
We're in Africa! Ok.
All right.
So, then we are done.
- A little bit more.
- A little - Come on, baby.
- Ok.
Give me a kiss.
This is disgusting.
Sorry, I don't mean to make that face kissing you.
Grab the bucket.
We're going to feed some meat.
Whoo! Rochelle's doing great.
I'd sleep in there.
Then the tribe came and encouraged her, which was pretty sweet.
It was really cool.
I almost felt like it was a sympathy cheer because I was the last one there.
But the Bushmen were all really encouraging, cheering me on and dancing and singing.
It's really cool to see all these tribes still, you know - Existing.
- Yeah.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Bye.
What do you want me to do? Hold the radio? I'm ok.
Just look with me.
Oh, we're picking up something.
Yeah, we're picking up a lot on this one.
All right, I think we need to go that way.
There are a lot of bars going this way.
So we're having him drive this way to see if we can find this elephant.
There's an animal.
Not an elephant, though.
- What was that? - Am I pointing in the right direction? Yeah.
Oh, gosh.
It just hit this.
Look at the zebras.
Oh, yeah! - Oh, my God.
- That's awesome.
- Yeah, babe, just keep it in the car.
- I'm sorry.
This is so cool.
Oh, my gosh.
They're right there.
Look at them all.
That is the coolest thing.
That is incredible.
- Aly, which way? - I'm watching the zebras.
I don't know which way you're pointing that.
I know you don't, so you just tell me when it's strong.
I am.
We're headed to feed some wild dogs this meat we cut off for them.
Oh, I see them.
They're right there.
- There are some dogs.
- Oh, they look hungry.
They look hungry.
They know they're getting fed.
- They're coming.
- Oh, my gosh.
Oh, my God.
What would happen if you jump down, would they go after you? They'll eat you up.
- Would they really? - Yeah.
Just keep throwing them.
Look at these dogs.
Whoo! Come on, boys.
Come and eat! Who's hungry? Oh, my gosh, this is out of control.
Here, puppy, puppy.
Come on, eat.
Eat, boys, eat! Yeah, there we go.
Just like German Shepherds.
These dogs are insane.
Dude, look at the little pups.
These aren't your average yard dogs.
Oh, look at the babies.
Look at the babies eating it up.
They're eating good today.
Throw it all here.
Let's go.
Grab like as much - Ok, we're good.
- We're good.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
Drive yourselves to the next Pit Stop.
Phil: Rising nearly a half a mile above Namib desert is Spitzkoppe.
These unique gold granite peaks were formed after 130 million years of erosion.
This ancient landmark is the Pit Stop for this leg of the race.
The last team to check in here may be eliminated.
- Let's go.
Let's go.
- Ok, let's go.
Go, go, go, go.
Go, fast, fast.
Warning, last team to check in may be eliminated.
Ok, let's go.
Let's go.
We're heading to find Phil.
There you go.
Yeah! Enjoy.
- Enjoy the meal.
- Bye, guys.
Warning the last team to check in may be eliminated.
Dundun, dun! Whoo! - Oh, my God.
I got blood.
- I know, we got I want to smear it on my face right now, but I'm not going to do that.
Put it down there.
Here you go.
We choose Pack.
We have to make sure we have to fill up the basket there.
You can have the knife.
You make sure you don't cut the bones.
Oh, my God.
I don't even like touching cooked meat.
This looks delicious.
I'm vegetarian so this is like the grossest challenge I could've possibly done.
But they're eating this so I wanted to see some animals, but I don't know if this was the kind I was talking about.
- Thank you.
- Thank you, thank you.
Let's go, T.
Now we have to navigate towards the Pit Stop.
That's when the real fun comes in.
Which way am I going, honey? Look, Spitskoppe.
- Spitskoppe.
- Make a right.
If we don't get lost, we win this leg.
On the road again.
Matt and Ashley are ahead of us.
But only by a little bit.
Whoo-hoo! All right.
Let's do this.
We have a lot that way and whichever way you were pointing because I can't tell you which way.
I'm pointing it this way.
Yeah, there's to parts, we need to really work together on this.
- What do you think I'm doing? - Can we stop, please? Aly, we need a game plan here.
I don't know what you want me to do.
We need to work together.
It's like skinning a deer.
I grew up with my dad skinning deer in the garage.
This is why I'm vegetarian, because I was so grossed out by it.
We are definitely the last I don't know.
We're going to go in this car over here.
I don't even see an elephant.
What's going on? I can't see what's going on, so you have to communicate with me.
Would you let me do something and let me be a part of it? He's not letting me do anything.
- So I'm kind of getting annoyed.
- Hayley, you can look up there.
You're letting me look, bu I can hold it at least.
Let me do something.
I believe we're currently in first place.
We're making our way to the Pit Stop.
- What am I following, babe? - Spitzkoppe, just follow the signs.
- It's in 215 kilometers.
- It's really that far? 215 kilometers.
That's a long drive.
We want that number one today.
This could be a race to the mat.
Here, dogs.
They are cute.
Are they nice or no? They're wild.
Fast, fast, fast.
They look excited.
It was worth cutting the meat to see these dogs.
Hopefully they appreciate it.
Good? All right.
Drive yourselves to the next Pit Stop.
All right.
See what we can do.
- Yeah.
- Ok? - We've got a straight - Right there.
- Or a right or a left.
- Which way, Aly? The strongest's right there.
- Straight ahead? - Yes, please.
Good answer.
- Yeah, stronger this way.
- Good girl.
- Keep going this way.
- Yep.
Oh, he's right there.
I see him.
Good girl.
Yes! Thank you, sir.
We'd scream if we could.
Drive yourselves to your next Pit Stop.
All right.
This is my first elephant in the wild, and it's pretty awesome that we actually tracked him.
Here we go.
That took a long time.
I don't know.
I think we did an ok job.
Do you understand where to go? Could we stop, please, sir? There may be some other teams.
I'm not sure.
Yeah, there is.
We gotta get out of here good.
- Thank you.
- Thank you, guys.
That's what we're looking for, Spitzkoppe.
Follow the signs.
Maybe point it that way a little bit.
We're really close.
Can you see all those bars, Blair? There are five bars that popped up.
That's the most we've ever seen, it looked like all of them.
Straight ahead? Uh-huh.
We're going to get it now, Hayley.
- I think we need to go that way.
- It's right there.
Whoo! An elephant.
Wait, under that tree.
That's ginormous.
I know elephants are big, but I didn't realize how big they were out in their natural habitat.
Our clue.
Ok, we've got to go.
I hope we're not last.
All right.
Let's go.
We need to hustle.
Yeah, we could be last.
We're in Africa.
I don't know when would be a better time for us to be number one and it looks like we're in second behind Matt and Ashley.
Do you want to look at the map just in case, because I don't - I want you to take a look at.
- Ok.
So we came down here and turned here.
Come on, Tyler.
Come on, Tyler.
Why did everybody stop? We missed something? Honey, why did everybody stop? - Stop! Stop! - You're kidding me right now.
Everybody stopped.
Reverse back.
Reverse back.
Go! This is where we need to go.
- So we go off and go D 1918.
- Yeah, we're on it.
- Ok, let's go.
- Let's do it.
Come on, Tyler.
What are you doing? Oh, my God.
- Weren't you looking, babe? - Yeah, babe.
Don't get mad, just reverse.
He's coming back.
Why is he coming back? I'm so confused.
- What are you guys doing? - What's going on? - What are they doing? - I don't know.
- Why are they out of the car? - Look at them.
Look at them.
Look at them.
Just stay.
Just stay.
Just stay.
- Oh, my God.
- What's going on? - Let's go ask them.
- Are we missing something? No, no, no.
Let's go.
Go, go.
Go! Let's go! I don't know what's going on.
This is not cool.
Get in the car and drive quick! I can't believe Matt and Ashley came all the way back.
Now please, catch up to them.
We just freaked out because we saw everybody stop behind us.
So we second guessed us.
We should have never stopped.
I'm a little discouraged right now because I'm pretty sure we're in the very back of the pack.
You're really You're really close to the side of the road.
- You can drive if you want.
- That's not what I was saying.
I'm trying to help you.
It's just from back here it seems like you're very far to the left.
See? I knew I knew we were going to hit that.
I knew you were going to hit that.
Babe, you're far to the left.
I think we have a flat.
I think we have a flat.
Yeah, we have a flat.
Oh, we have a real flat.
I knew I saw it coming.
- I - It's ok.
I told you a few times and you were like well you can drive if you want.
- Babe, I'm sorry.
- I don't what do we do? Let's see if we see a tire back here.
All right.
And I don't know how to change a tire.
I do.
I don't know if it's just a flat or if we really ruined the tire.
I don't know if we can fix it.
I saw it, but I didn't want to say anything cause I didn't want you to yell at me again.
No, I didn't yell at you.
- No, you're right.
- I know.
What is going on here? Are these the Olympians? - Oh, my gosh.
- Here come more cars.
This is so frustrating.
Now, we're definitely last.
I thought we were last before, but now I know for sure.
Do you even know how to fix it? That's the worst thing I've ever seen.
- We'll take the whole thing off.
- You know how to do that? - Yeah.
- Okay.
I'm sorry.
- I don't know how to help.
- No, you don't have to.
Honestly, sorry, Steve, but I told him multiple times that he was driving too far to the left.
You're right.
I'd be fine with wine coming and drinking beer right now.
I say that I'm kidding.
I actually want it.
Babe, tell me which way to go if you have an idea.
I feel like if I stop and they know where they're going, we're going to lose our spot.
We're feeling pretty good we're driving the right direction.
We have one team ahead of us.
Can I ask this person? What's it called? What's it called? I can ask this person.
Those guys are stopping to ask for directions.
Excuse me.
Spitzkoppe? Ok.
- Go around them.
Pass them.
- I will.
Good job.
Tyler just passed Matt and Ashley.
- We're at the front of the pack.
- Yeah, we got this.
I know.
We're going to be number one today.
- We're kind of following them.
- We don't need to follow them.
I believe we need to make a right, right here.
I think the other teams are going the other direction.
- Where are you going? - I have no idea - Why did you turn? - I thought it was this way.
- Do you think we're lost or what? - I don't know.
I don't know where I'm at, so I don't know if I go straight or turn.
But this is the road we stay on? Could it be that way? I don't know.
Now we have plan for the day.
We added another challenge to this leg of the race.
This is like Detour number 2.
I had to build a hut, so it's only fair that he gets to change the tire.
I do feel bad.
But, yeah, that's what happens on in the race.
Let's see if this thing can get us there now.
The last team that we saw was Steve and Aly on the side of the road.
Maybe some others aren't as good at navigating as we are.
At least one other team is not as good hopefully.
Are you looking for signs? I fell like we're finding a circle here.
I don't think we've passed it already.
I think we haven't passed any signs, right? I didn't see anything.
It's always nerve racking when you're alone and you don't know if you're going the right way.
I'm freaking out a little bit.
Rest Camp, 30km.
I think that's it, Laura.
I think you're right.
We should get off.
This is D 1918.
- This is where we wanted.
- It is? - Yeah.
- Ok, good.
Yeah, this is it.
- Spitzkoppe.
- That's it, make a right.
This is the right? D 1918, right? Look, and there are the teams in front of us.
It's going to be a foot race right here.
Can you do me a favor and try to drive in the middle of the road? Just, please, don't hit the curb.
I'm going to be really annoying to you now when you're driving.
Middle of the road, babe, middle.
I'm sorry I'm being so annoying, I have to.
- No, you're being - I'm annoying myself.
- This is amazing.
- Yeah, this is incredible.
I feel like I'm in the Lion King.
Ok, turn left.
Turn left.
- I see.
I see.
- Good eyes.
Good eyes.
- It has gotta be it.
- Holy crap.
- How do we get up there? - We'll figure it out.
My heart is racing so fast.
We're almost there, babe.
Those are the golden peaks.
We have to look for Phil.
Run up there, straight.
Come on.
- I don't think that's where you go.
- We can get up there.
- Come on.
- Are you sure? We have to climb a little, but we can make it.
Where's Phil? - Run.
- Where are we running to? We're going to run up those cliffs.
- Which way? - Come on, babe.
I don't feel like this is the smart way to go.
I can see Phil.
Come on.
- How do we get there? - Where is he? There he is.
Babe, this way.
Babe, babe, babe, babe? Ashley? No, no, I'm not going up that way.
Then run around this side.
- Right? - Yeah, yeah.
Keep coming.
You can't go up that way, hon.
- How am I going to get there? - Jump up, you got it.
Run up.
You got it, babe.
You got it.
You got it.
You're ok, babe.
Yeah! Yeah! Phil! Look who we beat.
How did they get up here? They went up the same side that we passed.
Welcome to Spitzkoppe.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Phil: Laura, you're not a rock climber, what happened? - She was looking for the stairs.
- Oh, shut up.
Phil: Matt and Ashley, you're team number one.
And as the winners of this leg of the race, you have each won $5,000.
And we said it too this is going to be our number one.
Not only as a race brought us close together.
I think it's going to help us on the long run when we're married.
We'll be together forever.
There's nothing that we can't handle together.
You won the Date Night again? Is that right? - Yeah.
- Are you kidding me? - Yeah.
- Massages today.
Phil: How are you treating each other? We're trying to win this race and we're having fun doing it.
We're in Africa.
- What road is this? - D 1918.
Yeah, that's what we need.
This is definitely 1918? - 1918.
- Where does it say that? - Right here.
- Ok.
We're almost to our destination, I'm feeling.
I don't know.
I'm very uncomfortable right now.
I think this is definitely too far.
We need to stop.
If we're past it, we should go back.
I don't think anyone's going to pull over on this side of the road.
Yeah, we definitely passed it.
- Let's go back.
- Let's go back.
She was looking hard at our pilot today.
I called him pilot dream boat.
That's what I called him.
I called him pilot dream boat.
- Phil: How did that make you feel? - Awesome.
Any time there could be something else to take the focus off of screaming at me.
I wasn't screaming at you at all today.
Phil: Is it true you were off hanging out with the kids? Of course, I was hanging out with the children! They all seemed to like me.
- Spitzkoppe Rest Camp.
- Yeah.
- Maybe it's in here.
- Go, yeah! Go left.
We haven't seen any other teams since we left the meat cutting challenge.
So at this rate, I honestly don't know what place we are at all.
We're hoping our spare tire makes it.
We're almost there.
Phil: Jelani and Jenny, you are not last.
- What? - You are fourth.
Oh, my God.
Phil: At least you could hug that out, for goodness sake.
I see gold colored peaks, but no Phil yet.
You think we missed the turn back there? Like there was one off to the side that way.
There's some car up there.
Maybe it's another car.
Maybe that's another team.
Over there.
- I think we turn here.
- Yep.
Right there.
Phil: Mike and Rochelle, you should be very pleased to know that you are team number five.
Oh, my God.
Awesome, awesome, awesome.
Going up was the most difficult way ever.
- Phil: All right.
- Welcome to Spitzkoppe.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Phil: Aly and Steve You started the day in first place.
You've ended the day in last place.
That's the way it goes.
You can go from first to last, and last to first like that.
He's way too calm.
He's just way too calm about it all.
It's like: "oh, what are you freaking out about?".
- So makes you feel almost like silly? - Yeah.
- You wanna share some of the stress? - It's ok, I'll deal with it.
Do you get what she's saying, Steve? Do you understand what she's saying? - No.
- A little bit.
Phil: I want to tell you guys that this is a non-elimination leg.
- You're still in the race.
- Thank you, Phil.
Phil: So you're not out.
There will be a Speed Bump some time during the next leg of the race.
And you're gonna have to get that Speed Bump done and avoid elimination.
These are tears of relief and happiness, I swear.
The feelings I have right now are similar to when I'm on the ice.
Just something that I have This is like the real competitor in me coming out now.
Teams better watch out.
Phil: Stay tuned for the second hour of "The Amazing Race.
" Phil: Namibia's extraordinary wildlife and natural beauty have helped it earn the nickname "The Gem of Africa".
And these brilliantly colored rock formations are the most recognizable landmarks in the country.
We're sleeping in tents tonight.
Camp out, damp out.
These tents don't have AC.
It is good for the back.
I cannot believe we're going to stay like - with that in our backyard.
- It's awesome.
So sleep tight and don't let the bedbugs bite.
Because I know there will be a lot of bugs.
Oh, anything bites.
So you're still here.
Non-elimination! You guys, the sun is setting.
Like, right here.
Oh, my God.
Seriously, look at it.
It's orange.
It's so pretty.
It's so Africa.
I like it.
- And the color of the rock.
- Yeah.
It's like the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen.
- It's incredible to see.
- Oh, my God.
It's seriously perfect.
Look at that.
Search for the Allgemeine Zeitung.
The Germans colonized Namibia as German South-West Africa, and many still speak the language today.
Teams will now be driven out of the treacherous back country to the town of Swakopmund, where they must pick up a local paper, and scour the German text for their next clue.
- Caution, U-turn ahead.
- Let's do it.
Nice and easy, ok? We're not gonna fall off of this.
- It's great.
- Feels great to finally get first.
- It was our time.
- Now we need to keep it going.
I'd love to keep up first place every leg.
Caution, U-turn ahead.
- Ok, baby.
- Let's go.
Last leg, I was disappointed.
We were so close to number one.
We're the only team that has not had number one yet.
Laura and I are thinking from the overall race.
It feels great that the Olympians are on the back and have a Speed Bump.
Thank you, baby Jesus.
It's awesome.
You know where we go, right? Ok.
We're going to follow that guy right there.
- Hi, Ronnie.
- How you doing, Ronnie? This morning we have a driver that's going to take us right out outside of our destination.
And from there, we're going to take over.
- Tyler and Laura are following us.
- We want to work together.
Because we want to U-turn Jenny and Jelani.
On a previously leg, we had trouble with Jenny and Jelani.
Ok, let's go.
Metal Castle.
- You guys know where it is? - Just keep Go, go, go.
Go, go first, go.
Are you kidding me right now? She's such a bitch.
I'm not crazy about Jenny.
So, if I had a chance to U-turn, I definitely will.
I can't climb the rocks.
We have more confidence in our team now.
Have a lot of trust between us more than we did a few legs ago.
I have trust in Hayley.
When push comes to shove, we know we can depend on each other to get the tasks done.
Caution U-turn ahead.
I hope it's not us.
- Caution U-turn ahead.
- Oh-oh.
- All right, let's go.
- All right, let's go.
We still have our Express Pass that we're holding on to.
Fortunately, we made the 8th leg and we haven't had to use it.
We have to use it now, hopefully we'll use it and catapult us up.
We're leaving in fourth, so hopefully we get the first.
The possibility of somebody u-turning us is very high.
I think Matt and Ashley would U-turn us in a second.
All right.
Let's go.
I feel like a changed person from this experience.
It's just completely changed my whole outlook on life and overall and everything.
Really shows how big the world is and how awesome it is.
That's why we want to keep fighting and keep going because there's so much out there to see.
This is so cool.
Ok, babe.
Let's go.
We're leaving last and we're feeling optimistic.
Yeah, we're ready for a new day.
We had a tough one last leg.
Let's go.
We're looking to turn things around.
It's gonna be tough to do that, but - We think if anyone can, it'll be us.
- Definitely.
Swakopmunder Buchhandlung.
Right here.
The orange building.
Allgemeine Zeitung.
- This is it.
- Is that it? Yeah.
Grab another one, just in case.
We're not sure what we're looking for.
It just said look for your next destination.
There's a lot of meat in here.
Oh, this is it? Yeah, this what we're supposed to look for.
It's all red and yellow.
Let's figure out where the hell this place is.
- It's in German.
- It's in German.
- It's in German.
- Are we going back to Germany? No, this was a Germany colony.
All right, I think it might be worth going to that hotel.
Yeah, yeah.
Whoo! Hi.
Right here, here it is.
This ad? There's a flag.
This is all in German.
We're going to have to ask someone what this says.
I hope this lady can speak German.
Could you translate it so we know what it says? - You speak German? - Yes.
Could you read this to us? - You don't speak German? Okay.
- No.
You drive 3.
6 kilometers.
It's a turn off.
- What is that in English? - You'll have to drive 6.
8 kilometers.
It's a skydiving place.
It's a skydiving place? - It's a skydiving place.
- Oh, my God.
I'm going to puke.
We're going skydiving.
This is going to be awesome.
- The skydiving club.
- Oh, yes.
Yeah, ok, so search for our next clue.
North-east on that Garoeb road.
Thank you so much.
Excuse me, ma'am, we're actually trying to get to the same place.
Here's the newspaper.
- It's right here.
- Cool.
We're going to have to go get it translated.
- Dude, this is cool.
- Yeah, this is wild.
- Oh, my gosh, what are we doing? - We're going skydiving.
Oh, my God.
I'm going to throw up.
- Getting nervous? - I'm getting - Yeah, baby.
- I don't know what I'm getting.
Let's grab the sucker.
Whoo! - It's a Roadblock.
- Oh, my God.
- Who has always wanted - Wanted a Sky Box? Phil: Teams will now take part in an airdrop.
Here in the world's desert, The Travelocity Roaming Gnome will coordinate the release of a yellow supply case from 1,000 feet in the air.
While teams track the falling case and search for it in the desert, the Roaming Gnome will skydive back down to earth.
And wait for them on top of this hilltop.
It's one thing to see the case fall, but a whole other thing to find it over a mile away in the middle of the desert.
Once they've reunited with their partner, they can open up their case to get their next clue.
I think you and I should do it.
Do it.
Do it.
Ok? Report to area recorder standing in the compass.
- Hi.
- How's it going? Good, how are you? First, you need to realise that the drops will be coming hot and high.
It's going to be very fast.
Once you have visual of the box, I will let you run at the box.
- Have you got that? - I dro I run? The Roadblock I thought it was jumping out of the airplane and we get there and it's running to find a box in the middle of the desert in Africa.
Let's go.
Hot and fast for the first drop.
Okay, copy.
Coming in for the drop.
- Is this my airplane? - It looks like it.
You've got this, Laura.
Keep your eye on it.
There we go.
You see the box? - Ok.
- Go! You got this, Laura! I see the box.
Not going to lose sight of it.
Slow and steady.
Whoo! I'm very excited about this.
There it is.
Go! Look at Ashley go.
- She's flying.
- Go, baby! Go! Go! Go! Go! Oh, that's That's That's not a person.
- That's just - Is that the clue? That would really suck if that's the clue.
Laura is way down there.
Skydiving would have been easier than this.
This is trash.
Not my box.
It's like finding a needle in a haystack.
Keep Oh, geez.
Yay, Hayley! Whoo! Hayley's never been skydiving.
She thought it was a skydiving challenge.
She was super pumped and excited about it, so I wanted to make her happy.
Now she's running in the desert, and I don't think she's too happy.
Trying to keep those ladies happy and then this happens.
This is going to be like, "I had to run two miles".
"While you stood there".
- A tire? - No.
We didn't do anything to cause a flat.
It might just be low.
I think we need to put some air in it.
- There's a gas station.
- Yeah.
It is a little flat.
- Oh, no.
- That's not good.
Oh, yeah, there's a nail in it.
No, don't pull it out.
Don't pull it out.
There's only one thing I want to do I just want to do get there before Jelani on the U-turn.
- Not good.
- We're still done.
We're in trouble.
Can you fix? We had a flat tire.
We knew that there was a U-turn ahead.
We needed to find fix to that problem.
You want to fix it now? I mean If it's something really quick, I rather we fix it now.
Don't think it's going to be really quick.
Please just help us really quickly.
I know it's in the vicinity of all these plants.
I think I see it.
Not too heavy.
Oh, there.
Why do I have the feeling she's got it? She's running right towards me.
This is a garbage bag.
This is a lot more difficult than it looks.
Can you please hurry? Please, hurry.
If you have something to patch it.
Good job.
Good job.
- Nice.
- See how quick that was? - Cool.
- Thank you.
It took some time, however, I think in situations like this, you want to be safe rather than sorry.
Turn left and travel approximately 9 KM.
- This way.
- Ok.
- That's where we're going? - Yes.
Then we're good.
Aly, what was the next direction, babe? I'm trying to read it what you Because you wrote the words not next to the sentences.
- Some are there, some don't.
- Uh-huh.
And I think I'm going in the I - So you think go straight? - I do.
Then that's what we're going to do.
This is rough.
There are rocks.
It's slippery.
I found my box.
Now I'm bringing it to the top of this hill where I see my little blue gnome.
The bulk of our girls are almost to the top of the mountain.
Feel kind of bad that they did this one, but It's all right.
I want her to run.
I've got to go back.
Be careful.
- Go get your gnome.
- Ok.
Yes, this guy.
There it is.
I got to carry this whole thing up the hill.
Yeah, babe! Whoo! Gotta get to that U-turn board.
Time to have some fun.
Put up some pictures.
Yeah, baby! Whoo! Open it.
- Yeah, baby.
- Yeah.
Drive yourselves to Snake Bend Pan and then search for your next clue.
- Ok.
- Great job.
Great job.
Great job.
Really tough.
Awesome job.
Awesome job.
- Let's go, let's go.
- Ok.
Good job, girl.
We're going to follow each other.
It looks like they're teaming up to get there.
I mean, you're always concerned about the U-turn.
I would be stupid to say I'm not concerned.
I think everybody knows Jelani and Jenny have the Express Pass.
Everybody are on the same page about maybe using it on them, but you never know.
We're on this for approximately 17 kilometers.
Awesome job.
- All right.
- It's a cute little guy.
How you doing? Me and gnome are seat belted in the backseat nice and safe.
That was great.
This is the gnome.
Travelocity gnome.
My buddy that I had to run up a mountain for.
I hope he's appreciative.
Do we get to take this home with us? I can totally set this up in my balcony.
I'm pretty sure you don't have room in your bag.
Someone leaving? - Probably.
- Let's see.
Who is it? Who is it? Jenny and Jelani? No, Mike and Rochelle.
Holy crap.
Mike and Rochelle left after Jenny and Jelani.
So that's pretty crazy.
Who has always wanted a sky box? - You.
- Me.
So, this is a Roadblock, do we do it or do we skip it? Maybe we skip it.
There's Mike and Rochelle right there.
- Got a visual? - Yeah.
Go, man, go.
I don't see other teams, I only see Mike and Rochelle.
- Maybe the other teams left already.
- That's what I'm saying.
So we should do this and save the Express Pass for the next one.
- Ok, do you want to do it? - I'll do it.
- See it? - Yeah.
- Keep your eyes on the box.
- You can do this, Jelani! Run, Jelani, run! He's gonna make up time, he has a good speed.
This guy is quick.
He's like, the speed of lightning.
Oh, man.
I'm pretty turned around right now.
He got his box, damn it.
I don't know what this is.
All right.
Your man is almost up the mountain already.
Oh, my God.
Whoo! Jelani! Good job! We're ahead of the Olympians.
- That's a good sign.
- And they have a Speed Bump.
I don't think the Olympians are even here yet.
I see the car coming over.
There are teams here.
Here's our Speed Bump.
Why are there are children? Phil: This Speed Bump requires Aly and Steve to make a toy African style.
These creative toys are made entirely with repurposed soda cans.
Once their plane is ready for take-off, they can continue racing.
All right.
Making these guys some toys.
This is wild.
These planes are made out of coke cans.
The wheels are made out of bottle caps.
I think they're really cool.
I'm just trying to figure out how to put them together now.
- So how many? Four? - Four.
I can't get this on here.
Take off the and put the top through this hole.
The kids are smarter than we are.
All right, guys, I think we almost got one for you.
How is that? Does that pass? Yeah? All right.
We've got one.
Oh, boy.
Whoo! Good job, Jelani! You're almost here! Whoo-hoo! Mike's not too far behind.
All right.
Let's go.
Laura and Tyler's strategy is to knockout the toughest competitors, which I understand.
Our strategy is to U-turn Jenny and Jelani.
Are you ready to use the U-turn? Yeah, it's got to be done.
Leading the pack! Whoo! Phil: Matt and Ashley are the first team to who will make a Detour decision.
Work or Play.
Phil: Namibia is predominantly a desert landscape with no short supply of this, sand.
Teams will now work and play in it.
85% of the roads in Namibia are unpaved, making them susceptible to corrugated ridges like this.
Teams can now help locals take the bumps out of their ride by dragging five enormous tires behind their trucks, under the supervision of the guest foreman.
Once they've properly smooth out a total of 5 miles of road, and the foreman deems it travel-worthy, they'll receive their next clue.
There may be no better place on earth for this cross-country sand skiing.
After a crash course from Henrik, a world record holding speed sand skier, teams will need to slap on skies, follow a marked path up over a round, and then sled down a series of sand dunes to get their next clue.
- You wanna ski inside the dunes? - Let's have some fun.
- I skied once in my life.
- We're going to do Work.
Are you ready for a special sand skiing adventure? - We're ready.
- Yes.
Ok, first what we need to get for you is the equipment.
Oh, wow.
These are so comfortable.
- I don't like skiing at all.
- Ok.
- All right.
- Let's just go do the Work.
- You're crushing my dreams.
- Sorry.
I give you now different important things.
First pulling the ski, not lifting up.
Take long steps over the flats and keep the skis as close as Together, yes.
Me and Ashley are both big time snowboarders.
We were looking to have a good time today.
- Ski season's all year round here.
- Yeah, that's what he told us.
Never thought I would be skiing in Africa, that's for sure.
Wow, babe.
This is wild.
What's up, guys? At Work, we had to hook up five tires together and then attach them to the back of a vehicle.
All right.
Let's do this.
- I'll attach.
- You'll just get them ready.
The tires are a little heavy.
You are so manly.
The Bickersons just showed up here.
They suck.
- You got it? - I think.
Ooh, look at those guns.
Yeah, slowly turn.
- Oh.
- Just like this, slow.
It was actually pretty difficult to get up the hill.
There you go.
It was really difficult for me to get up.
This is hard.
Oh, this is exhausting.
Come on, Mike! Almost here.
It was the hardest thing I've done so far in this race.
I thought I was going to fall over.
I thought I was going to puke.
But I seen Rochelle.
She was getting closer and closer in view.
So, I kept going.
She was the goal.
I was like "You gotta run to Rochelle".
Good job.
I'm totally proud of him.
You can tell he never gave up through the whole thing.
I couldn't ask for a better partner in this race and I think in life too, so I think when we get home we can probably take the next step in our relationship.
It's time that you can meet my son and be part of our family.
Sorry we're not doing this faster, guys.
Good girl.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
These kids have definitely put me in a better mood.
So thank you, guys.
Tada! - Yay.
- Thank you, guys.
- Good job.
- Thank you, guys.
You guys are awesome.
All right, let's go.
Who has always wanted to sky box? - That's you, babe.
- All right.
There's the drop, go! Keep it visual, right? Yes, sir.
You got it, babe.
He's going the wrong way.
I saw it drop over there.
And he's running that way.
Got a line in the compass but it's hard in the desert because everything's so flat.
He's going the wrong way.
I thought it should be right here somewhere.
God, he's so far off track.
It's over there.
Should be like right here.
Oh, my God.
He's driving me nuts.
He's running even further that direction.
This day has gone from bad to worse.
I'm going to keep heading this way.
He's so far off.
It dropped over here.
And from what I can see, he's over there.
Initially, I pressed my compass as soon as it inflated but unfortunately it was a pretty strong crosswind and I took my eyes I think off the package.
This is white.
But we're going to check it anyhow.
That's a cardboard box.
God! If we don't get the Detour early enough, very high chance of us getting u-turned.
You know, worse comes to worse.
We need to use the Express Pass.
It's our last chance to use, so yeah! - That's good.
- We're good.
- Good, okay.
- Thank you.
All right.
Let's do this.
We've definitely been on some roads that could use some leveling.
That's a metaphor for Hayley's personality.
Oh, my gosh.
Don't even get me started on you.
We're almost around this, baby.
We got it.
- This sand just pushing me.
- You got it, babe.
- Keep walking.
- Oh, my gosh.
Keep your stick down.
Just keep your stick You're fine, babe.
You don't realize you're fine.
Keep walking.
Stay like that sideways.
Ow, ow.
There you go.
Honey, look at me.
Relax, relax.
Just stay for a second, ok? - Babe, I'm not - Babe, relax for a second.
I kept trying harder and harder to get up and I wasn't doing it correctly, so I would dig myself deeper and deeper in the sand.
Look at me.
Look at your boyfriend.
Look at your fiance.
Catch your breath.
Listen to me, ok? Finally, I stepped back and took a deep breath.
Straight out an angle.
Do this, do that.
I'm so glad that I didn't get frustrated and I was just like "shut up".
Put that stick down.
Put that stick down.
Step, step.
Yes, there you go.
Keep going.
You got it.
Don't stop, you're almost there.
Keep walking.
It definitely wasn't as fun as it was going to be.
But it was worth.
- Step and plant at the same time.
- I got it.
- Let's do some off-roading.
- Come back a little more.
The gnome better hang on.
Definitely feel like we're pulling something.
Looks good.
The tires are moving and shaking stuff.
Doing a great job, Tyler.
Can you check us? Good? - All right, let's do the .
- Thank you.
I didn't think it was quite this far.
I guess we'll try a little bit more this way.
Starting to come back.
I see some white over there.
Looks like a plastic bag, but I'll check just to be sure.
He's finally going in the right direction.
Yep, that's definitely it.
That was a lot.
Gotta take the box.
That was a nightmare.
Did he found it? God, I hope he found something.
He's really far.
It's a There he is.
gnome, all right, let's roll.
We've put our into a pretty deep hole here.
Steve and I, we're competitors and now I feel like it's game time.
We're going to pull ourselves back together.
You're doing a good job.
It's too fun.
This is too much fun.
Just be careful and get to the side we're supposed to be on.
Hayley, I'm gonna get on the right like you told me to until another car is coming, then I'm going to go on the left.
I understand that.
You don't have to have an attitude about it.
I'm just telling you so we're not messing anything up in our Detour, ok? I'm just giving you a friendly heads up, ok? Bring it in, he says.
Bring it in.
Ok, babe, we got this.
Look at that choo-choo train.
Oh, now we've got to go back.
You have to admit you haven't been the best of drivers, so I can have some concern.
I'm just saying.
I'm not gonna I'm done.
Play a little chicken with Blair here.
- Yeah, baby! - Hey, baby! Do you think Hayley is yelling at Blair? Hopefully.
We're good.
We're good.
- Got it out.
- Just comments.
Not at all.
Babe, look to the left.
This is amazing.
It looks like it's animated.
The view of the desert was out of this world.
It looked unreal.
It's unexplainable.
It was amazing.
That's so beautiful.
It's like you're looking at a mirage.
Hey, guy.
- Hi.
- I'm going to Well done, guys.
You could leave your skis.
We had no clue how we were going back down, I thought we would have to ski down, like a ski ramp.
Up like this? Ok.
Right before we were about to go down, I was like, this is going to be awesome.
Front up.
Whoo! Yeah, baby! I have sand all up in my grille.
Come on, baby.
Let's go.
Slow down.
I don't know how fast, maybe 25 miles an hour.
Maybe 10 miles an hour, it was fun.
It was fun.
Whoo! I love you, baby! Give me a kiss.
Kiss, kiss, kiss.
Make your way down the road on foot Phil: Two teams can now slow down two other teams with a U-turn forcing them to perform both sides of the Detour.
- Let's go, baby.
- Ok.
Thank you.
Right there.
See that? It's a U-turn board, come on.
- The tires are looking great.
- So far, so good.
- Thank you.
- Thanks, my man.
Moment of truth.
I see people over there.
Work or Play? We're going to do Play and we're going to use our Express Pass for play.
Hey, Tyler.
Matt and Ashley are up there.
I think they're going to U-turn Jenny and Jelani.
We're not going to use this Detour.
We're going to use our Express Pass.
Thank you.
Make your way down the road on foot in the opposite direction.
- Work over there.
- Yeah, over there.
Come on, baby.
Let's go.
Let's go! Now it's the moment of truth.
Here goes nothing.
Jelani, come on.
Let's do this.
Go! Come on.
U-turn, baby! Sorry, Jelani and Jenny your ass is getting u-turned.
We're choosing to U-turn Jelani and Jenny.
Because they have the Express Pass.
Sorry, guys.
My picture.
Oh, I look good.
Next clue.
Find Phil in the middle of the Swakop River.
We're going to find Phil, guys.
Go! - All right.
- Come on! We're ahead.
Do you want to U-turn them? Them.
- Ok? - Uh-hu.
We're u-turning them.
Here we are.
Warning, last team to check in may be eliminated.
Baby, look who's here.
Oh, boy.
That was close.
Let's go, babe.
What's up, guys? Good to see you.
We're u-turned.
Damn it.
I knew Matt and Ashley were going to U-turn, whatever.
So, they u-turned us, which means we're going to do the other U-turn.
We used our Express Pass on Play, so now we're gonna do the Work Detour.
- Pit Stop, babe.
- Pit Stop.
Pit Stop.
Phil: Teams must now drive themselves into the heart of the desert, Moon Landscape.
Once here, they'll have to find this lush oasis called Goanikontes.
And just for fun, they can pick an exotic animal to bring to the Pit Stop.
A donkey, oryx, camel or a feisty zebra.
The last team to find me there at the Pit stop may be eliminated.
Oh, my God.
Jenny and Jelani.
We just u-turned them and they have to use their Express Pass.
Game time.
I can't believe we just u-turned the Olympians.
Great day of racing.
This is living.
Whoo! Where are we going, Mr.
gnome? We're on our way to see Phil at the Pit Stop.
Look who they u-turned.
- Wow.
I did not expect that.
- Let's get out of here.
Is that the clue? Last team to check in may be eliminated.
That's good news.
We're not u-turned.
We choose to do Work.
That's the longest I've ever run in my life.
- Dear God.
- Good job.
Good job.
These are heavy.
It's kind of like hanging out working at the truck stop.
Oh, my God.
I have the strongest girl on this entire race.
Good? Ok.
Pull up the truck.
All right.
Come back just a little.
- Good, right? - Ok.
So let's go get our car.
Those dumbasses.
They were stupid for U-Turning us.
I wonder if they found out they got u-turned, so they use the Express Pass.
Jenny and Jelani ran by us and she seemed very upset.
Oh, stop, stop, stop.
Jenny seems high-strung.
She got her eyes on the prize.
It's the name of the game.
But I feel like she pushes Jelani around.
Poor Jelani.
Roads looking smooth.
We're grating a road in Africa.
- This is it, right? - Yeah.
We're going to pick up one of these companions.
This way.
Which one is the fastest? - That one is the fastest? - We'll take this guy.
- Grab the gnome, Laura.
- I have it.
- Oh, wait.
The gnome.
- The gnome.
Hurry up, honey.
Come on, buddy.
- Ok.
- Come on, buddy.
Come on, baby.
- You've got this, Tyler.
- This is Norah.
- Norah? - Norah, the zebra.
Is it going to hit me with that thing? - You wanna switch? - I'm walking a zebra right now.
This is so cool.
- Good job.
- I like this.
Is that Phil right there? - Keep going.
- You're doing so good.
Wow there, buddy.
- Be careful.
- Careful, Norah.
- Norah.
- No, no, no.
- Norah, Norah, Norah.
- Don't pull her.
Wow, that was wild.
Just keep doing what you're doing, honey.
- We're ok.
We're ok.
- We're ok.
- Step on the mat.
- Congrats, guys.
Phil: There you go.
That's kind of an interesting finish, huh? - He wants to get to the finish line.
- All right.
- Welcome to Goanikontes.
- Thank you.
- Thank you so much.
- Yeah, baby.
- Phil: Guess what? - What? Phil: You are team number one.
Laura and Tyler, this is your first.
I have some great news for you.
As the winners of this leg of the race you have won a trip for two from Travelocity and you are going to Queenstown, New Zealand.
You're going to enjoy five nights at the Millbrook Golf Resort and while you're there, you'll enjoy an aerial view of the country with a tandem skydive and a Milford Sound tour of the glaciers.
- Awesome.
- Amazing.
- Yay! - It was our day.
Eight leg.
If we keep on this way, we're going to be in that final three.
Phil: And the decision to U-turn Jelani and Jenny.
We've been planning that.
We've made some promises and we kept them all today.
Today was their day.
Come on.
Phil: Is it a he or she? It's Dave.
Dave's a male.
Phil: Dave, Hayley and Blair, and Travelocity Roaming Gnome, how are you guys getting on? Good.
Today was very even-keeled.
- We started out so bumpy, but - We smoothed out some bumps today.
Good job.
- Thank you.
- Thank you so much.
Thank you.
Search for your next clue.
All right.
Let's go.
It's going to be a very interesting leg.
Jenny is one that could take that personal.
Jenny could be very mean.
I think if she runs into Matt and Ashley I don't even want to be around that.
Let's go.
Oh, we're skiing? Skiing would be awesome.
Work or Play? Play.
Ski and sled the dunes to receive your next clue.
Oh, my gosh.
This is so cool.
This is going to be fun.
Try to do it fast, babe.
- Play was awesome.
- Yeah, Play was a lot of fun.
It was sporty like we're used to doing.
- This is actually pretty cool.
- This is awesome.
This is like what I'd picture the moon to be like, with the craters and stuff, I don't know.
It just feels like we're in a different planet.
It's hard to drive and take it all in.
Wow, oh, my God, this is so incredible.
I feel like I'm driving into the middle of like a painting.
Whoo! Whoo-hoo! - Wow! - Oh, yeah! [Laughter.]
You're too big! It was just like a bobsled, right? - I hope those are our buddies.
- I hope so.
It's so hard to pick.
Zebra I think the zebra.
We're going to see Phil, Mr.
Oh, my God, this is so cool.
I would love to ride a camel.
Oh, I don't ride it? I take it.
Oh, ok.
His name is David.
Hi, David.
I'm Jenny.
My dad's name is David.
Walking a zebra in Africa.
This is so cool.
Keep walking.
Oh, there we go.
This is so fun.
All right, let's not do that again.
- Maybe the zebra wasn't the best choice.
- The zebra is pretty wild.
Let's be friends, buddy.
Oh! All right.
- Are you ok? - Yeah.
If that was a little lower, I would be down and out.
Let's get the donkey.
I'm leading my dad to the Pit Stop.
Wait, what's going on? Let's go this way.
Come on, Ellie, we're in a race.
Come on, baby.
Let's get to the Pit Stop together, David.
No, you want to go this way.
This is the way you want to go.
Phil, we're coming.
Come on, David.
Phil: Come on to the mat, you guys.
You're breathing like crazy.
Jelani and Jenny.
When you got to the U-turn, you thought what? You know, we knew that Matt and Ashley they're intimidated by us.
They don't have any more u-turns to play, we do.
If there is a situation where we could potentially single one team out, who are we going to single out? Of course the team that u-turned us.
It's all about the finish line.
Oh, my God.
So we were u-turned by Laura and Tyler.
Yeah, but we expected that.
The race is unlike anything else that her and I have done and really could ever do.
This is unfortunately, the end of the road for us.
We've had so much fun.
We've done the most random things ever.
Money has never been our motivation for anything.
We're Olympic athletes.
There's no money there.
We work our asses off for nothing.
And with this race it was something that we could do together and take us out of our comfort zone.
I think we expected to go a little bit further, but people come playing to win.
And most people don't.
Yeah, but we're not most people.
You are a good camel, my friend.
Come on, buddy.
Phil: Probably the slowest you have ever moved in your life.
Yeah, you know We move faster.
You can tell people that you actually walked a camel in Africa to the mat.
- Welcome to Goanikontes.
- Thank you.
It's beautiful here.
Phil: Aly and Steve, it's - It's deja vu, I'm sorry.
- I know.
It is.
Phil: You are the last team to arrive.
Second leg in a row, and unfortunately, - This time there's no escape.
- We knew that.
We had a pretty good feeling that was our fate.
We should've won the whole thing.
Everyone of those teams here knows that.
They all wanted to get rid of us.
And we actually took ourselves out.
We just made it so much easier for all of them.
You're welcome.
Come on, Dave.
Phil: Have fun.
- He's our ride back home.
- He is.
I'm taking him to Massachusetts.
Phil: Stay tuned for scenes from our next episode.
Phil: Next week on "The Amazing Race".
Laura and Tyler hot tub through Amsterdam.
I'm getting wet.
Oh, my God.
Hi, Amsterdam.
Phil: While Matt kind find his kicks.
Damn it.
I'm an idiot.
I literally kind find this thing.
Phil: And Hayley and Blair have a bumpy ride.
I freaking told you.
I'm so angry right now.
What is going on in your head?
