Roadblock: One team member was required to search through more than 600 different-sized tin boxes for one of ten containing the next clue. Alex, Amber, Kelly, Uchenna and Gretchen completed this task for their respective teams.
As seen in the next episode, the teams arrived to the "non-Pit Stop" mat to recieve their next clue from Phil in the following order:
#1. Rob & Amber.
#2. Ron & Kelly.
#3. Uchenna & Joyce.
#4. Lynn & Alex.
#5. Meredith & Gretchen.
No team was eliminated in this episode, as the leg did not end and there was no Pit Stop. At the end of the episode, only Rob and Amber had arrived at the roof of the Charbaugh Multiflats, where Phil made an previously unheard-of mid-leg appearance to tell them personally that they had not reached the Pit Stop and handed them a clue to their next destination. The Route Info with the clue that directed teams to Phil contained, for the first time ever, no information whether their next destination would provide another clue or be the Pit Stop.
Yield: The second of three Yields was available in this episode, but no team chose to use it, meaning it has not yet been used this season.
There was no Fast Forward in this episode. The first of two was used by the now eliminated Ray and Deana earlier in the race.
This is the second time an episode has ended before the leg is completed.
This is the first time the mat has been used for a non-Pit Stop. Therefore, this is also the first time there is no greeter at the mat.
Balance Sheet: All teams remain their placement from the start of the leg.
No team chose "Solid", where they would've travelled a mile to a coal depot, smashed and loaded 175 lbs. onto a flatbed tricycle, and delivered it 4 blocks to get the next clue.
All teams chose "Liquid", where they travelled three miles to a tea shop and pushed a tea cart to an office building 100 yards away. Once there, they had to deliver five cups of tea, then return the cart to get their next clue.
Rob: (at the palace) Some guy built this for his girlfriend.
Amber: Or for himself!
Rob: Imagine if I built you a palace. If I did, it would look twice as nice.
Meredith: That was crazy. Everyone was pushing and shoving.
Gretchen: Well get used to it.
Uchenna: (in the plane to Francistown) It was just like postcard Africa. I mean Texas has some amazing skies, but you gotta see Botswana!
Meredith: We've all got the same flight. Now let's hope we don't break a hip!
Gretchen: Meredith and I never dreamed we'd come this many legs and now the competition is turning into ferocious lions!
Rob: (on Ron/Kelly) If I were in their position, I'd probably choose to Yield them. Luckily, they're not the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree.
Uchenna: (seeing only men in the streets) Women are not playing a big role in the program here.
Phil: This leg is not over.
Gretchen: There were just mobs of people cheering us on and yelling and clapping and wanting to touch my hand.
Rob: Ron and Kelly didn't Yield us. Their mistake. Oh well.
Gretchen: Oh, God. I wish I had a lot of money to give to these poor people.
Ron: If it wasn't for bad luck, we'd have no luck at all.
Ron: Very fast. Mow'em down like grass.
Uchenna: Lynn and Alex have been very good at sharing and we've shared back.
Gretchen: We've gotta do what we can to eliminate these other people.
Joyce: Walkin' in the rain with the one I love.
Uchenna: It's nice to hear you say that.
Phil: (voiceover, regarding Brian and Greg) But in the end, even their outfits couldn't save them.
