Episode Summary


The six remaining teams continue racing through Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater, with knowledge of an impending Double U-Turn, as well as a Speed Bump for Nary & Jamie. Directed to the Hillary Clington stall in Karatu, a Detour awaits: wait in a long line to fill nine large jugs to deliver a family's "Water Supply", or repair a flat bicycle tire and fill it with the correct "Air Supply". Moving on to the Jack Stelzer Pub, the Double U-Turn tempts racers prior to directions to the Gem Gallery and Arts store, where the Speed Bump forces Nary & Jamie to set up an outside art vending kiosk. The clue there points teams to Margaret's Farms in Mto Wa Mbu and the Roadblock, where racers have to harvest 500 grams of honeycomb. Successfully completing the Roadblock gives the location of the Pit Stop: Lake Manyara.

  • art n jj oh how the might hath fallen.

    shame they didn't get eliminated, but talk about ego trips.. yes a team ahead of you doesn't u turn the last team who escaped philimination who has the speed bump... get over your selves i'm stilling reeling from their generosity to team like that 5k will go to boppers knee first ;)

    they u-turned team bigbro, why didn't they instead u turn team fbi ? if they where sooooo threatened by them... no they just pouted and whinged like little bitches and u turned the team most likely to quit...

    and then saying no more help no more buddy time with the army job guys single handedly showing why us military don't work well with all the immigrants coming through the borders you are shit at your job..

    but you throw a child like tantrum and dummy spit cos some one didn't do as you i actually liked the them up to the point they decided suddenly to attack team lying...

    tasks were boring, not really challenging but merely a way to pass the time..

  • Better than last wek, with more great drama! (Spoilers ahead!)

    Task-wise, this leg was better than the last, but not by very much. The Detour was definitely interesting, and those water queues were really eye-opening. Great choice for a Detour task.

    The Double U-Turn made things very interesting and dramatic of course! First time ever that both victims have survived! And this is also the firt time ever that a U-Turn (of any kind) has been successfully used but did not claim any victims to elimination.

    Art & JJ are childish and stupid as usual... Terrible move to U-Turn Brenchel, given that the 'teachers' were hours behind and had little hope of catching up. Rachel & Dave made a great move to keep their U-Turn powers for later in the race - when it could be more important - but Art & JJ act like angry little children and are unable to see the intelligence in Davechel's move...

    The Radoblock was fun! Beekeeping! This exact task - helf in the same village - appeared as part of a TAR5 Detour, but was unused by all six teams. Great task to recycle and I really enjoyed it!

    This leg was great! Reminded me a little bit of some old school Africa legs in TAR, and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the rest of the race route looks dismal...moreless
