Tonight’s episode: The teams are in Indonesia and it’s the beginning of the next leg of the race. Natalie and Nadiya are the first team to depart, they also won the Express Pass in the last leg. Teams now had to head to a local restaurant for their next clue and they have to caution because there is a U-Turn ahead. The teams arrive and find a Road Block. This Road Block requires teams to serve twenty plates of food, at the same time. If they drop anything, they have to go back to the kitchen and do it all again.
James and Jaymes are the first team to complete the Road Block and receive their next clue. Teams now have to head to Surabaya train station to travel by train to another town and during the ride, they have to keep their eyes open for the next clue.
Gary and Will are the last team to depart and are heading to the restaurant while other teams have already completed the Road Block and heading to the train station.
The first train has left at 7:36pm, Natalie and Nadiya lost their lead as they were not on that train, the next train leaves at 10:55pm.
Teams receive their clues from a person on the train, they have to choose between Egg Head or Lion Head. Teams have to travel in a small cart that is attached to a bicycle and ridden by a driver. In Lion Head, teams have to wear a huge lion head dress that is really heavy and perform a traditional walk down the street. In Egg Head, teams have to find a tiny little market and two eggs each, then hold a coconut half on their heads while two guys cook the eggs on the top of the halved coconuts, on their heads.
Teams then have to make their way to Perliman Pos 1. This is the Double U-Turn, any team who does it will remain anonymous.
Abbie & Ryan are the first team to arrive, they decide not to U-Turn anyone and are now headed to a local high school that is the pit stop for this leg of the race. James and Jaymes have also arrived, along with Trey & Lexi.
The first team to arrive at the Pit Stop are Abbie & Ryan, they have won a trip for two to the Fiji islands. The second team to arrive is Trey & Lexi, the third is Jaymes & James, the fourth is James & Abba, the fifth is Josh & Brent.
Josh & Brent finally have the eggs cooked, they are now doused with hot sauce and they have to eat them. Gary & Will, Natalie & Nadiya, Rob & Kelly, Caitlin & Brittany are in the final four couples.
Rob & Kelly decide to use the Double U-Turn on Gary & Will while Natalie & Nadiya are team number six at the Pit Stop, Rob & Kelly are team number seven.
Gary & Will decide to use the U-Turn on Rob & Kelly, but little do they know that they have already passed the Pit Stop. Caitlin and Brittany are all mixed up when their driver takes them to the wrong place. Both teams are headed to the Pit Stop, it’s just a matter of who gets there first.
Gary & Will are team number eight and still in the game despite being U-turned. Caitlin & Brittany are the last team and have been eliminated from the race. The girls tell Phil that the driver caused them the race.
