Teams would have to become rat catching assistants to a pest control agent. Both team members have to fill a bag with dead rats, collecting them from three different locations. Once they've filled both their bag, they would win the Fast Forward. James & Abba won the Fast Forward.
The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to repair one of the public transit buses used in Dhaka. First, teams have to use body putty to fill in the damage, then sand it to be ready for painting. Once approved by a supervisor, they then have to carry three pairs of seats and deliver them to the refurbishing area to receive their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must travel by taxi to Kawran Bazaar Shootkir Market. Once there, teams must find a fish stall and search through two barrels of dried fish to find one marked in red and yellow they can trade for their next clue.
Choice A: Pound the Metal
Teams would have to work with a local blacksmith to hammer and beat an iron rod into a sharp spiked tool using 10-pound sledgehammers. They have to hand-pump the bellows of the smokey, charcoal fire so they can strike while the iron is hot. Once they get the blacksmith's approval on their spike, teams will receive their next clue.
Choice B: Pound the Cotton
Teams would have to make a cotton mattress via a traditional Bengali method. Teams have to use bamboo rods to beat clumps of cotton into a fine, feather-like consistency. Then they have to stuff the mattress, and sew it together. Once the craftsman is satisfied with their work, he will hand them their next clue.
