Ready to race?
Teams are off to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The traveling Travelocity gnome is promised ahead. All the teams are on the same flight. So, we're starting out even once again.
In the desert, they pick up their gnome and face the Detour. Race It or Oasis. Racing bikes against camels or leading camels to a camp. Sheri and Cole are lost as all the other teams are hitting the Detour.
The Alpha Boys made it through the all but impossible task of racing camels. But now they can barely walk.
They're the first ones to the Roadblock -- at Aqua Adventure -- getting into a shark tank and solving a puzzle for their next clue.
The Alpha Boys give up on solving the puzzle and use their Express Pass. It's off to Poseidon's Revenge. Oh my.
Cole and Sheri actually beat the camels on bikes. But they're lost again now.
1. Brodie and Kurt -- won a trip to Finland
2. Burnie and Ashley
3. Korey and Tyler
Dana and Matt are having a meltdown. If they don't get their act together, Sheri and Cole might pass them. That is, if Sheri and Cole don't get lost again.
4. Zach and Rachel
5. Matt and Dana
6. Sheri and Cole -- NONPHILIMINATION!!!
They're still in it! They will have a Speed Bump in the next leg!
