Tammy and Victor now hold the record for the most legs won by an Asian team, a record previously held by Ronald and Christina, who won three legs in the twelfth season.
This was the second season that there was not a non-elimination leg in the final 4, the first time having been the third season.
This is the second season where none of the final three have ever finished last in a non-elimination leg, the first time being the tenth season.
Margie and Luke are the second parent/child team to make it to the final three, the first being Ronald and Christina from the twelfth season. Also, Margie and Luke beat Toni and Dallas's record as far as highest mother/son team finish.
Roadblock: Teams racing in this leg were given a clue reading "Who's got a taste for adventure?" to help them determine whom should complete this leg's Roadblock. In this Roadblock, one member of each team had to eat a plate of Chinese delicacies-- grasshoppers, larva, scorpions and starfish. Victor, Margie, Jen and Cara all successfully completed this task.
U-Turn: This was the second of two U-Turns on the race. Unlike the first, this was not a Blind U-Turn, meaning that any team that chose to use it had to post both their own photo and the photo of the team that they were U-Turning. Tammy and Victor used the U-Turn on Kisha and Jen, forcing them to turn back and complete the Detour choice that they had not previously chosen.
Detour: Teams racing in this leg were given a Detour choice of either Beijing Opera or Chinese Waiter. In Beijing Opera, teams had to travel to the Hu Gong Wei Gong Opera House and make themselves up as a princess and gentleman in a Chinese opera. In Chinese Waiter, teams had to travel to the Hu Gong Wei Gong Restaurant and receive orders from customers in Mandarin. They then had to recite those orders to a chef. Once they had recited all the orders correctly, the kitchen staff would prepare the orders, which then had to be served. Kisha & Jen, Margie & Luke and Jaime & Cara all successfully completed Beijing Opera. Tammy & Victor successfully completed Chinese Waiter. Kisha & Jen also successfully completed this task, having been forced to complete it via the U-Turn.
The teams finished in the following order:
#1. Tammy and Victor (Prize: Eight Day Trip for Two from Travelocity to the Galapagos Islands)
#2. Margie and Luke
#3. Jaime and Cara
#4. Kisha and Jen (ELIMINATED)
Victor: (regarding the Chinese Waiter during the Detour Task in Chinese) If we can't do this task, Mom and Dad will kill us.
Tammy: (in Chinese) Very shameful.
Phil: Jaime and Cara, I'm sorry to tell you, you are gonna have to keep racing because you are team number three. You are still in the Amazing Race.
Jaime: You eat that starfish like it tastes like a steak. (giggles)
Tammy: It feels so amazing to be part of the final three.
Victor: We're definitely not underestimating whoever's going into the final three with us.
Tammy: What are you going with next?
Victor: The grasshoppers. (in Chinese) It's perfect. I didn't eat breakfast today. (in English) So I'm a little hungry.
Jaime: We walked around Beijing in drag. We were searching around to find somewhere we couldn't pronounce.
Victor: (regarding the food at the Roadblock) I actually am glad they're frying it because I was about to eat it raw.
Kisha: You good, Jen?
Jen: Hell no, my hands are cold.
Kisha: Riding bikes in China in the cold.
Victor: Can't believe I'm carrying a purse and a doll.
Margie: I feel like a drag queen.
Luke: Mama, sorry, I'm not a girl.
Margie: (regarding Luke, at the Detour task) He made me look like Alice Cooper.
Kisha: I don't think we have any ill will toward Margie and Luke, but I think definitely, um, if we get an opportunity to do something that will put them behind in the game, then we will definitely utilize that.
Jen: I think I'm gonna ask Phil "Can I pee?" before he checks us in.
Tammy: We were tricked. It wasn't a Pit Stop.
Luke: Mom, let's go.
Margie: You yell at me again and I'm finished. The longer we're on the race, the harder it is. I just don't wanna hear him yell "mom" one more time.
