This is the first leg that Margie and Luke had a finish other than first or fourth.
Kisha and Jen set two milestones in this episode. First, they became the first all-female African-American team to win a leg of the race, and the ninth all-female team to win a leg overall, following in the footsteps of Christie and Jodi from this very season, Charla and Mirna from the eleventh season, Dustin and Kandice from the tenth season, the Godlewski Family from the eighth season, Debbie and Bianca from the seventh season, Tian and Jaree from the fourth season, Mary and Peach from the second season, and Pat and Brenda from the first season. In addition, this is the second season to see two all-female teams win at least one leg instead of one, the first being the eleventh season.
Mark and Michael's elimination guarantees that at least one all-female team will make it to the final three this season. It also guarantees that Kisha and Jen will break the record for the highest-placing team of sisters in a two-person-team season, which Kami and Karli from the fifth season previously held. However, they will have to make the final three to break the overall record for highest-placing team of sisters in any season, which is held by the Godlewski Family from the eighth season.
Detour: This leg's Detour required each team to take part in a task involving one of the ways that the people of Guilin express themselves artistically. The choices were Choreography and Calligraphy. In Choreography, teams had to travel to Central Island and then join in a group of locals performing their morning dance routine. After learning the dance, they had to perform it for a team of judges, who would provide the next clue when satisfied. Jaime & Cara and Mark & Michael successfully completed this task, though Jaime & Cara briefly flirted with the idea of switching to the other task. In Calligraphy, teams had to make their way across the twin bridges and copy characters at calligraphy stations. Each item of calligraphy that they copied would direct them to their next station, a total of four stations and upon completing the fourth station, they received their next clue. Kisha & Jen, Margie & Luke and Tammy & Victor all successfully completed this Detour task.
Speed Bump: Since they finished last in the previous leg but were not eliminated, Mark and Michael were hit with a Speed Bump in this leg. This Speed Bump required them to work as stylists at a hair salon, washing and drying the hair of two waiting women.
Roadblock: Teams were given a clue reading "Who's ready for some fowl play?" to help them determine whom should complete this leg's Roadblock. This Roadblock required one member of each team to take part in Guilin, China's fishing industry, the old-fashioned way. They had to raft to the middle of a river and then train a Cormorant bird to catch fish. Then, once it had caught ten fish, they had to return to the dock to turn them and receive their next clue. Tammy, Jaime, Jen, Luke and Michael completed this task for their respective teams.
The teams finished in the following order:
#1. Kisha and Jen (Five Night Trip for Two to Barbados, Courtesy Travelocity)
#2. Tammy and Victor
#3. Margie and Luke
#4. Jaime and Cara
#5. Mark and Michael (ELIMINATED)
Kisha & Jen, Tammy & Victor and Margie & Luke arrived at the Pit Stop in a virtual tie and stood on the mat together.
Mark: All in all, it was a great dash around the world.
Luke: All hearing people put deaf people down. They think we're stupid.
Margie: Don't laugh at my son when he signs.
Jen: I'm smiling.
Margie: I'm sorry, but that's rude.
Jen: I'm smiling. I'm smiling because that's what we do.
Margie: No, you weren't smiling. You were laughing and if you laugh at my son again...
Jen: (regarding Luke) I called him a bitch because it was a bitch move.
Victor: (speaking in Chinese) If we don't win, our parents will cry themselves to death.
Tammy: We are writing calligraphy in Chinese. Sadly, Victor and I did not pay attention in Chinese school.
Margie: She said you pushed her first at the other place.
Luke: I didn't.
Margie: I know you didn't.
Victor: We do a lot better now. We've learned to not, like, attack each other. You know, as long as we're working together, it works out.
Jen: We're actually the first ones out. Margie and Luke, I believe in karma. It was extremely bad sportsmanship.
Michael: Oh, the Speed Bump was a gasp. We had to basically just shampoo, wash and dry these wonderful two little old ladies' hair.
Victor: (to Tammy, as she completes the Roadblock) When I think of birds and smelly fish, I think of you.
Jen: Game on, they're bitches.
Luke: Good thing I'm deaf. If I had heard her yell at me, called me a "bitch," it would have been on.
Jen: I don't trust Margie and Luke. They steered us in the wrong direction when we were in Bangkok. So we're going to be battling head to head with them.
Tammy: Even though we can communicate with our cab driver, all it means is that we understand him when he says
Tammy and Victor: he doesn't know where we're going.
Tammy: (in Chinese, to a taxi driver) We are racing against two teams of foreigners. It feels so good to be in a country where we speak the language and none of the other teams do.
Victor: We get to speak Chinese now.
Tammy: And we're really excited because, um--
Victor: We're Chinese.
Tammy: We're Chinese and I've actually been there before.
Jaime: The only thing I know about China is that it is very populated, which is not one of my favorite things.
Luke: It's nice for me being here in a different country where people don't speak English. That way, we are both in the same boat.
Margie: It is kind of eye-opening for me. Yeah.
