Episode Summary

Episode 1 | Thailand

The third season begins. Host Alan Wu instructs the teams that they will be starting in Bangkok, Thailand where they will set out on a race around the world for $100,000. The teams leave the start line at King Rama I Monument and make their way to Khaosan Road where a following clue leads the teams to Amphoe Khlong Luang, a Caltex Service Station where teams then have to completely clean a 22-seat passenger bus to receive their next clue. The teams then head towards Wat Phai Rong Wua where they have to search the temple grounds amongst hundreds of Buddha statues for their next clue. Proving to be a fairly easy task, the teams then face a Detour at Chiang Mai Bus Terminal. The tasks require teams to proceed to the Chiang Mai X-Centre and either drive an off-road buggy over an 8km track to receive their next clue in "Race", or "Rice", where teams must work together to pound rice into paste and make two rice balls using a traditional method, subjected to approval. Teams are then instructed to make their way Ratchaphruek Garden, the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. In a true photo finish, one team is unable to recover from the back of the pack and have been eliminated.
