Let's get the party started!
They're staying in Malaysia at least for the start of the leg.
Roadblock -- Who's got a spring in their step? It entails jumping on a trampoline thingee supported by locals to pull down a clue.
Next they're off to Kuala Lampur with only three flights available. Dave/Connor are still maintaining their lead.
Margie tells us Luke came out to her as gay. Not a problem.
Uh-oh, the second flight is delayed and the third flight will get there before it. Dave/Connor, the Cowboys and the Afghanimals are on the first flight.
Detour: Mixmaster or Master Mix -- They have to learn how to DJ and show their scratching skillz. Or they have to mix a drinks into a pyramid of glasses.
Most of the teams go for the drinks part of the detour only to find out it's very difficult. The Cowboys have taken over the lead and are heading to the Pit Stop.
The Afghanimals and Dave/Connor are also heading there.
Pit Stop --
1. The Cowboys - Won a trip to London
2. Dave and Connor
3. Leo and Jamal
Luke is breaking down with frustration (deja vu) on the drink task. I don't see where switching tasks could help him as he can't hear. They HAVE to do this task. Brenchal is also stuck on the drink task.
4. Carline and Jennifer
5. Jessica and John
Rachel, of all people, pep-talked Luke/Margie and Brendan. It really helped Luke. He did it!
6. Flight Time and Big Easy
7. Luke and Margie
8. Brendan and Rachel -- but it's a non-Philimination leg!
I predicted that early on in comments, mind you. They will encounter a speed bump in the next leg.
Heck, Brenchal has improved and they're just about bearable this season.
