#4. Lynn and Alex.
#5. Meredith and Gretchen.
#6. Brian and Greg. (ELIMINATED)
Two teams take drastic (and opposite) measures to stay in the race, should they be last on this leg. Lynn and Alex begin putting on all their clothes, so that if they are last, and this is a non-elimination leg, they would be left "with only the clothes on their backs," and all the clothes they were able to put on during the drive to the pit stop.
Brian and Greg do the complete opposite, arriving at the Pit Stop in only their swimming trunks and winter hats. They hope that either they're dressed so ridiculously that Phil can't eliminate them, or that if it is a non-eliminaiton round, they will get to start the next leg half naked. Unfortunately, they are eliminated.
Roadblock: In this Roadblock, one member of each team had to navigate their Team's vehicle through a crocodile-infested crossing on the Khwai River. Then, while driving through the bush, the driver had to choose a driving path and then move remove the marking posts along the way in order to reach to reach their next clue at the end of the path. The following people completed this Roadblock for their respective teams: Alex, Rob, Greg, Meredith, Ron and Uchenna.
Uchenna and Joyce were actually the third team to arrive. However, at the Roadblock, Uchenna forgot to remove the post. This did not affect team placement for him and Joyce. Meredith and Gretchen were actually the fourth team to arrive. However, Meredith and Gretchen missed the clue that directs them to the Pit Stop. They returned to the Pit Stop in fifth place.
Neither a Yield nor a Fast Forward were available on this leg.
Balance Sheet: Rob and Amber move up from second to first. Ron and Kelly move down from first to second. Uchenna and Joyce, Lynn and Alex and Meredith and Gretchen remain in the same placings that they were in the previous leg. Brian and Greg remain in last and are eliminated.
Uchenna/Joyce chose "Carry It", where they had to balance items on their head and walk to a goal line, without using their hands.
Ron/Kelly, Rob/Amber, Lynn/Alex, Meredith/Gretchen, and Brian/Greg chose "Milk It", where they had to milk goats to get ten ounces of milk. Ron/Kelly, Rob/Amber, and Lynn/Alex all second-guessed themselves before starting and attempted Carry It, before coming back and completing their original choice.
Kelly: Let this be a record that I did not point out everything Ron did wrong today. Ron pointed out everything I did wrong today...
Ron: (overlapping)Oh my God!!!
Kelly: ...I just want that to be a record.
Brian: Should we roll in wearing our freakin' swimsuits and say "Phil, I dare you not to eliminate us!!"
Greg: Let's do it, baby.
Brian: Phil's going to see us and say he can't eliminate us so we have to go through the rest of the race wearing those goofy clothes.
Greg: Hope this freakin' Roadblock is a manly stunt. None of this sissy stuff. Milkin' goats or balancing things on your head. Both of those are for the little farmer ladies that do it.
Rob: (on "Milk It") Kelly didn't want to get her pretty little hands dirty, while my girl got in there and got the job done.
Uchenna: Houston, we have an elephant!
Phil: Lynn and Alex.
Lynn and Alex: (disappointed) Yes.
Phil: You're team number 4
Lynn and Alex: WHAT?!
Lynn: (after getting a 2nd replacement vehicle) Let's see if we can wreck this one.
Kelly: I don't balance buckets on my head and do pirouettes.
Greg: Big bucks, big bucks, big bucks, no whammies.
Alex: We're good, honest players, we're just sneaky.
Phil: You're the team that just keeps on going and going and going.
Gretchen: The old Energizer Bunnies.
Phil: (to Lynn and Alex) The fashion police is going to arrest you here in Africa.
Kelly: (to Ron) You've been acting like a jerk all day to me --- you're a piece-of-trash redneck.
Gretchen: I'm so happy right now. I got to see the elephant.
Alex: Oh my God, that's a... I don't even know what that is!
Rob: (as a giraffe runs past) What's that on it's back? A monkey?
Amber: Rob, that's its tail...
Joyce: (to Uchenna) Who's ready for a real Roadblock? You are.
Kelly: You told me to "shut the 'F' up".
Ron: No, I didn't!
Uchenna: Concentrate on the buckets. Don't worry about the other teams.
Rob: Best teat so far.
Greg: I'm climbing a watertower for no reason.
Rob: At this point, the gloves are off and we're really playing for ourselves.
According to tvgameshows.net, "With its 15th place [weekly ratings] ranking, [this episode was] the highest ever for the adventure game in a regular season [which means not summer]."
This episode also appears in listings as "Houston, We Have An Elephant!"
After Uchenna and Joyce see an elephant of their drive, Uchenna exclaims "Houston we have an elephant." This is in reference to the line, "Houston, we have a problem," a line made famous in the movie Apollo 13.
Greg's wish for "no whammies" is a reference to game show Press Your Luck.
