Episode Summary

The five remaining teams set off from the eighth Pit Stop at a royal palace in Bangkok, Thailand and receive a clue instructing them to travel over 1,000 miles to Guilin, China. With one team facing a huge penalty, the teams arrive in China on a series of flights and travel by taxi to a hair salon on the street of Qing Xiu Lu. There, they receive a clue instructing them to travel to the #24 bridge. One team faces a Speed Bump before they are able to continue and drama begins when two racers enter into a shoving match, leading one to call another a "bitch." At the #24 bridge, the teams face a Roadblock involving some "fowl play" and one team encounters a great difficulty when the birds they need for their task keep flying away. Next, the teams travel to a 1,000 year old, structure, the Ancient South Gate and participate in a Detour requiring them to either paint calligraphy or complete a dance routine. They then receive a clue instructing them to travel to the Pit Stop, the Bangan Lake nestled between the Sun and Moon Pagodas. Here, the conflict between two racers comes to a head, and one team is eliminated from the race.moreless
