RECAP: The ninth leg around the world begins and Nicole & Travis are the first ones to depart and travel 4000 miles to Bandung, Indonesia to find the Ram Arena. Leo & Jamal confront Nicole & Travis about U-Turning them, but nothing comes of it. All teams are now on the plane together, they all arrive in Indonesia at the same time. Teams are in cabs and traffic is a mess. Nicole & Travis are still in first place. Teams must now take two Head-Butting Rams to a west Japanese festival and when the rams to butt heads, they put them back in the same trucks and they will get their next clue.
Nicole & Travis are quickly finished and now must head to the Bandung train station. Tim & Marie finish the task quickly but have car trouble and end up being pushed to last place, with Jason & Amy just in front of them; but they have both missed the train that the other four teams are on.
Next for the teams is a Detour and teams must choose from “for the elephants” or “for the birds”. In for the elephants teams have to collect food at a market, transport by hand trolley to the elephants. In for the birds, teams have to find two birds that match and bring them to the bird arena and get them to sing.
Leo & Jamal head to the market and start to collect the food for the elephants. Nicole & Travis head to the birds and quickly find their matching birds. Ally & Ashley make a mistake and head to the arena before getting the bird which causes them a delay because they have to go back and get the birds, but decide to feed the elephants instead, then change their mind and head to the birds; these two are unbelievable. Nicole & Travis are done and have to head to Saung Angklung Udjo which is a cultural workshop.
Leo & Jamal feed their elephant and are just behind Nicole & Travis. It’s a RoadBlock, teams must assemble an angklung. Nicole & Travis are their first and thrilled that they don’t see anyone else there yet. Meanwhile, Jason & Amy have arrived at the market with Tim & Marie just behind them. Nicole has not yet assembled the instrument when Leo & Jamal walk in. Jason & Amy are in third place, they have fed the elephants and are on their way.
Nicole makes a first attempt at the instrument and fails, Leo as well. Nicole has already made two attempts now and still fails, but Leo wins. Jamal screams out to Leo and tells him to destroy his instrument, while Nicole runs around him and tries to see it. Leo & Jamal call Nicole a liar for resorting to dirty game play. Once this RoadBlock is completed, teams have to head to the Bosscha Observatory which is the next Pit Stop. Tim is done as well as Leo; both teams are headed to the Pit Stop. Meanwhile, Travis is frustrated because Nicole still cannot figure out how to assemble the angklung.
Leo & Jamal are team number one to arrive at the Pit Stop, they win $7500 each that they can enjoy after the race. Tim & Marie are team number two. Amy is done, but Nicole begs her for help with Jason screaming for her to hurry up because Ally & Ashley have arrived. Nicole finishes the RoadBlock, but if it wasn’t for Amy’s help she would not have finished. In the cab, Travis tells Nicole that he is embarrassed by her performance (he is so mean!). Jason & Amy are team number three at the Pit Stop, Nicole & Travis are team number four.
Ally & Ashley are the last team to arrive at the Pit Stop and have been eliminated from the race.
