Episode Summary

The four remaining teams depart the Pit Stop at the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum, with Louie and Michael knowing a Speed Bump awaits them. A Roadblock at Longhua Temple forces racers to correctly count the hundreds of golden statues, while the Speed Bump forces Louie and Michael to toss coins into an incense burner before doing the count. The Detour has teams choosing between searching "Pork Chops" for their names or delivering orders of "Pork Dumplings" to get the clue to the Pit Stop at the Riverside Promenade.moreless

  • Great developments but...

    I have to say, watching this episode, in the end I initially felt bad for the cops because the brothers completely used them and the cops were too nice to dump them somewhere. I guess I want to see them in the finale race. However, in all fairness, the cops were the first out of everyone to put on the gloves when they U-Turned Joe so perhaps it is some form of karma.

    Now that the final teams are decided, I will be rooting for the cowboys. They've been entertaining and genuinely good people throughout the show so I hope luck is on their side.moreless
  • Great penultimate leg! Hope we get a good finale!

    This was another very interesting episode. It was not one of the better episodes of the season, which has been jam-packed full of them, but it certainly was one of the funniest ones.

    I thought the Road Block was great, and Caite once again proved her stupidity, not her intelligence. The Speed Bump, as I mentioned on the forums, was bassically a Speed Up. What a waste!

    The Detour was interesting. Would've picked the 'Pork Dumnplings' myself, but I was surprised everyone chose the luck-based task.

    I was thrilled to see Brent & Cait e actually win a leg, and the world's tallest man was extremely ctue!

    Overall, a sensationalally funny episode. Hilarious, interesting and quite challenging. A little disappointed that Louie & Michael are gone, but not really.

    Hope for a good finale, next week!moreless
