On to our recap, after spending the night in a small village Andy and Tommy are the first team to depart at 5:28 am because they were the first time to arrive last time. They are headed on a crowded bus to the town of Salima. Justin and Jennifer are next to depart and everyone else following. The teams are surprised that they only get $1 dollar for this leg of the race.

The buses are busy, crowded and smelly. The teams all appear to be on the same bus, even Marcus and Amani who arrive last to depart. When the teams all arrive, Marcus and Amani find a speed bump – they have to do a puzzle of the Malawian flag before they can continue on. The rest of the teams are at the roadblock which requires one team member to ride a bicycle with a native Malawian riding on the back and deliver fish, but when they return they have to remember the route back to their partner, because they are all alone.

Andy’s bicycle break, the crank system falls apart and he tries to get the locals to fix it as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Marcus and Amani are having a hard time with the puzzle at the speed bump. Jennifer makes a mistake by not reading the clue and heading off on the bicycle and not knowing what to do next, meanwhile this gives Marcus and Amani a chance to catch up as they have finished their speed bump. All the teams have finished and have moved on except for Jennifer who is still waiting and asking herself why she didn’t read the clue.

The teams next head to the detour, where they will experience life at the lake when they choose either “dugout” which is a canoe race or “lugout” where they have to unload cargo.

Ernie and Cindy choose dugout and are having a hard time, they get frustrated and decide to use their “express pass” Zac and Laurence, Jeremy and Sandy are all having a hard time at the dugout. Meanwhile, Bill and Cathi are calm and collective which gives them the lead. Jennifer finally goes back to Justin, reads the clue and then they finish up and are on their way to meet up with everyone else at the lake.

Once they finish the detour, the teams have to head to the Jamaica shop and even the Ernie and Cindy arrive at the Double U-Turn first, they decide not to use it, they head to the pit stop instead. Andy and Tommy also decide not to use the the Double U-Turn.

For some reason, Marcus and Amani choose the more physical challenge at the “lugout” which is really taking it’s toll on them in the sun.

Ernie and Cindy, Andy and Tommy are all in a race for first place at the pit stop.

Andy and Tommy are team number one and win $15,000 from Discover card to share. Ernie and Cindy arrive second, but you know what they say, you snooze, you lose! Bill and Cathi are team number three to arrive.

Marcus and Amani are finally finished at the “lugout” and are headed to the pit stop and decide not to U-Turn anyone. Laurence and Zac arrive at the Double U-Turn and decide to U-Turn Marcus and Amani but they have already passed it. Jennifer and Justin finally arrive at the “dugout”.

Armani and Marcus are team number four at the pit stop. Laurence and Zac are team number five. Jeremy and Sandy are team number six.  Justin and Jennifer are the last team to arrive and are eliminated from the race.
