On last week’s show as teams continued racing through Indonesia, they discovered that it’s every Team for themselves as they encountered a Double U-Turn, and Teams started to feel the heat of the Race as their heads are set ablaze. Teams had to dress in some ridiculously heavy traditional costumes and then roam the streets in part of one of the local customs. All the teams have problems with the challenge.
On tonight’s episode as team’s arrive in Bangladesh, the game gets heated as one Racer’s enthusiasm pushes their competition to the breaking point. Meanwhile, one Team Friends Jaymes and James must performs the unpleasant task and collect dead rats from three locations and hand them over to the Rat Catcher. In a Road Block, Goat Farmers/Life Partners Josh (left) and Brent (right) have to repair a broken down bus in order to receive the next clue.

Tonight’s episode: Indonesia is the start of the fourth leg in the race around the world. Abbie & Ryan are the first team to depart as they were the first team to arrive at the pit stop in the last leg. Teams are now headed to Bangladesh.
At the airport, Abbie & Ryan are booking their flight when Trey & Lexi walk in and get on the same flight – actually, everyone is on the same flight so they have all caught up with each other and it’s anybodies race in the next leg. All teams are travelling through Singapore to Bangladesh.
At the Road Block, teams have to repair one of 15, 0000 buses each that drive through the streets everyday in Bangladesh. Teams have to fill the body with putty, sand it, then remove three seats and bring them to the refurbish area to receive their next clue.
James & Abba decide to do the Fast Forward that they get, in this Fast Forward they have to become rat catching assistants.
James & Jaymes are not doing well at the Road Block, they have to scrape off all the plaster and start over again. Gary is also having a hard time and tells Will that he is starting over again as well.
Natalie & Nadiya are doing well with the Road Block and for the only all girl team this season, they are kicking all the other teams’ butts. Abbie & Ryan are actually the first team to finish and are now headed to Kawan Bazaar to find a shop with a smelly bag of dried fish where they have to dig for a colored one to receive their next clue. Abbie & Ryan are quick to find their fish and get their next clue, it’s a Detour where they have to choose from “Pound The Metal” where they have to make a tool to a Blacksmith’s approval or “Pound The Cotton” where they have to make a cotton mattress.

Meanwhile, Abbie & Ryan are still struggling with their mattress, while Natalie and Nadiya have finished the Detour with Rob & Kelly. James & Jaymes are still at the market and just found their colored fish.
