Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 1 | Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
AIRED:
10 teams of 2 set out from the city of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and were instructed to travel by taxi to Times Square Shopping Center. All teams struggled to find taxis and it became quite a hassle. Once there, teams learned that they had to make their way to Kompleks Kraf, where teams faced their very first Detour. Teams had the choice of painting and tracing a traditional silk batik painting which required steady hands or make a bowl on a pottery wheel to receive their next clue. Both tasks proved to be a little tricky but all teams eventually completed their choice quickly. Once completed, teams had to jump into a car and drive to City Carting Enterprise to find their next clue. Teams then had to go kart around a track completing four individual laps to complete the task. Some teams fell behind in this task due to miscounting the laps required to complete the task. Next, teams were instructed to make their way to the Pit Stop. In a very close foot race to the finish, one team was unable to catch up and checked in last place. They were given a reprieve when they learned that this was the first of four Pre-Determined Non-Elimination legs.moreless
