Let's get this show on the road! Teams are headed to the lower altitude area of Peru where they must search South America's largest mosaic tile wall with a magnifying glass to find their next clue.
Detour - Perform a national dance or make bricks for archeologists.
Mike and Rochelle are the only real dating couple -- not blind daters -- remaining in the race. I've grown to like them. Although unlikely, I would love to see them win. Their car to the wall is not a healthy car. Fingers crossed for them! Uh-oh. Laura and Tyler, the last team to leave the Pit Stop, passed them. I do like Laura and Tyler, though. If I had my druthers, it would be one of the other two teams going home. I'm not keen on either Hayley or Jenny.
Hayley and Blair actually worked well together in the brick making/delivery detour and are in the lead. Mike and Rochelle are running last.
Roadblock - Who wants to ride a seahorse? Has them going through the surf on a native handmade boat doohickey.
Hayley and Blair are on the way to the Pit Stop. If Hayley had all season been as pleasant as she's been on this leg, I'd like her.
But I don't and she was nasty!
It's looking dismal for Rochelle and Mike. They switched from bricks to dancing and are definitely trailing.
Pit Stop --
1. Hayley and Blair - won a trip for two to India
2. Jelani and Jenny
Mike and Rochelle are finally on the way to the Roadblock while Laura and Tyler are finishing it up.
3. Laura and Tyler
4. Mike and Rochelle
HOWEVER, YOUR RACE IS NOT OVER! Whoopie! The final leg starts right now! They're still in it, but a team will be Philiminated before the finish line.
