Teams must make their way to the Chen Clan Academy and watch a demonstration of martial arts students. At the end of the demonstration, the master would approach them and stamp the name of their next destination in Mandarin Chinese on both of their foreheads.

Teams must make their way to Edaytown Guangzhou at Gate 5 Mall, where they would find their next clue.

"Who's the mechanic?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must assemble a child's motorized car from a provided kit. Once the car was fully assembled and operational to the "toy soldier" judge's approval, he would give them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Caroline & Jennifer used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock. Caroline had chosen to perform the task prior to handing over the Express Pass.

Teams must take a taxi to the Guangzhou Children's Activities Center with the car assembled at the Roadblock, using a provided strap kit to secure the car during transport, and give the toy car to the children in exchange for their next clue.

Choice A: Featherball
Teams must make their way to Liwanhu Park, where they must play jianzi with a team of local players. Once they have successfully volleyed the shuttlecock a combined 10 times (volleys made by the local players were not counted), they would receive their next clue. If at any time the shuttlecock falls to the ground, whether due to either team member or a local player, they would have to to start over.

All teams chose this task.


Choice B: China Cup
Teams would receive a traditional massage involving cupping therapy. Once the massage is complete, they would receive their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Shamian Island Promenade to check in. For coming in first, Brendon & Rachel each won $2,500.
