Winner with Joyce (Season Seven)
Winner with Uchenna (Season Seven)
Eliminated 8th with Gretchen (Season Seven)
This episode is the first time that the last team to arrive receives a prize.
Uchenna & Joyce are the first team to win two legs in a row since Colin & Christie won Legs 9 and 10 in the fifth season.
Although Ron and Kelly arrived last at the Pit Stop and were stripped of all possessions, the one thing that they weren't stripped of was a Travelocity gnome, something that all teams had picked up one of during a task early in the leg. It turned out that Ron and Kellys' gnome contained a symbol of a plane, meaning that they had won a special prize. They received $20,000 to spend on Travelocity.com and a stay at the first-class suite at the Four Seasons Hotel during the Pit Stop time so they could get started on spending on that prize.
The Yield was not made available in this episode. Two have previously been available, but neither were used and one still remains. Both Fast Forwards have already been made available and used.
Balance Sheet: Uchenna and Joyce remain in first. Meredith and Gretchen move up from fourth to second. Rob and Amber remain in third. Ron and Kelly move down from second to last but are not eliminated.
Ron/Kelly chose "Columns", where they travelled two miles to a large well in a building supported by 224 numbered columns. Using a coordinate grid, they located four columns, and using the numbers on them, formed the combination to a locked box containing their next clue.
Uchenna/Joyce, Meredith/Gretchen, and Rob/Amber chose "Kilos", where they travelled one kilometer to a town square, and then had to weigh enough people to total 2,500 kg.
All teams shared a flight from Jodhpur to Delhi. From there, Meredith/Gretchen and Uchenna/Joyce travelled to Istanbul via Dubai, a better flight package than Ron/Kelly and Rob/Amber who still had a later-leaving direct flight to Istanbul.
Gretchen: (after weighing someone at the Detour) 58? That's a light-weight!
Gretchen: (at the Kilos Detour) We want big men! Superman!
Rob: Uchenna and Joyce have no idea who to turn to. Now they're asking Meredith and Gretchen for advice. It's like the blind leading the blind!
Gretchen: (arriving at a hotel) All right! Home sweet home for 8 hours!
Kelly: Uchenna is a leech for information.
Rob: (on Meredith/Gretchen) You'd think at 65, 70 years old, they'd have a clue, but they don't.
Rob: Next leg, we won't miss that flight. End of story.
Gretchen: (rapelling up the fortress) A 66-year-old shouldn't be doing things like this.
Uchenna: Prize or no prize, we're having fun.
Ron: This is kind of a nightmare. We could be eliminated.
Rob: Find a gnome. What's a gnome?
Kelly: (not knowing she and Ron are in last place) We're in second place right now. We gotta catch up.
Meredith: What are we gonna call this?
Gretchen: I don't know. Gnome.
Meredith: Jerome. Jerome the gnome.
Joyce: We got a gnome! We got a gnome! Woo hoo!
Ron: I was only committed to the military...
Kelly: And you got out of that one.
Kelly: By being a P.O.W.
Gretchen: Rob just said "did you get on the earlier flight to Turkey?"
Uchenna: So obviously there is an earlier flight.
Gretchen: Meredith and I are still staying in the race. Before, my goal was just to stay in one more day, but now my goal is to win the race!
Ron: The amount of tension that Kelly and I have is starting to build at this point.
