Let's get this show on the road!
The teams are heading to Peru. Laura and Tyler get a flight first, but will it be the first flight in? Blair/Hayley and Jenn/Jelani seem to have gotten a better flight -- 12 hours earlier. Yikes! Tyler and Laura, after celebrating Laura's birthday, just realized they could have booked an earlier flight. Matt/Ashley, Mike/Rochelle make the earlier flight.
After watching fireworks in Peru, teams are off to get lost in taxis.
Jenn and Jelani find the elusive clue at a shoe shine first while Hayley berates Blair.
Roadblock - Who wants to take charge in the field? Work with a professional sugar cane cutter and harvest the crop.
It looks like Matt/Ashley and Laura/Tyler will be totally lost as they follow wrong directions when they were right atop the shoe shine booth.
Speed Bump - Matt and Ashley have to type (with a typewriter) a loan contract for llamas.
They have to log their FitBit (more product placement as if we didn't have enough with cars) progress. They have to drink sugar cane juice and figure out how many steps they must take to burn it off.
Detour - Mamas or Papas. Mama's moonshine, find ingredients. Papas has them sorting and delivering potatoes. Jenny and Jelani remain in the lead. Matt and Ashley are trailing.
Uh-oh. When some of the potatoes were sorted wrong, the woman just dumped them on the ground. Jenny and Jelani lost their lead and Hayley/Blair are heading to the Pit Stop.
1. Hayley and Blair - Each won a FitBit fitness kit. Oh, gee. Wow.
2. Jenn and Jelani
3. Mike and Rochelle
4. Laura and Tyler
5. Matt and Ashley -- Philiminated
