Episode Summary

The six remaining teams set off from the Jaigur Fort in Jaipur, India and receive a clue instructing them to fly nearly 2,000 miles to Phuket, Thailand. All teams arrive on the same flight and, once there, begin their search for a gorilla statue depicted in a picture they all receive. Most teams find the correct location, Phuket Zoo, with little trouble, but one team is misled and wastes valuable time traveling to the wrong location. At the Phuket Zoo, the teams have their pictures taken with a tiger and then take part in a traditional performance that involves having elephants step and squat over them. Upon completing this task, they receive their photo from the tiger keeper, which is also their next clue. This clue directs the teams to the Nguan Choon Tong Herbs Shop in Old Phuket, which features a frustrating task requiring the teams to instruct the shopkeeper to select various drawers from a group of ninety-nine until they find their next clue. Once teams have found this clue, they participate in a Detour requiring them to either prepare a fishing ship for ten days at sea or guide a rickshaw along a two-mile course. Upon completing this task, teams travel to the leg's Pit Stop, the Wat Thep Nmit Temple. Upon arrival, one team sweats out two penalties, one racer collapses due to heat exhaustion and one team arrives just a little too late and is eliminated from the race.moreless
