Episode Summary

The remaining five teams take off from their Pit Stop at the Wat Thep Nimit Temple in Phuket, Thailand and receive a clue instructing them to fly over 400 miles to Bangkok, Thailand. All teams catch the same flight and then travel by taxi to a local boatyard and search the grounds for their next clue, which turns out to be a Roadblock. After completing the task, requiring one member of each team to properly attach a propeller to a boat, the teams use the boat to search through the Bangkok Canal for their next destination, the Peninsula Pier. Two teams make a critical mistake by leaving behind important possessions. At the Pier, teams face a Detour choice involving either matching waiting patients with dentures or singing karaoke during a car journey. They then receive a clue instructing them to travel to the Phya Thai Palace, the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. One team makes a recovery after some previous problems, but the mistake involving the items left behind comes back to haunt two teams and one of them is also haunted by a massive penalty, but is not eliminated from the race.moreless
