Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from Jaigarh Fort are as follows:

  1. Tammy & Victor (10:21 am)
  2. Mel & Mike (10:50 am)
  3. Kisha & Jen (11:02 am)
  4. Margie & Luke (11:03 am)
  5. Jaime & Cara (11:04 am)
  6. Mark & Michael (11:11 am)

Teams must fly to Phuket, Thailand. Upon arrival, teams must use a provided photo for reference to locate a gorilla statue, which they must figure out is located at Phuket Zoo, where they would find their next clue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after finding their clue at Phuket Zoo. None of the teams opted to take the Fast Forward. According to a post-Race interview with Mel & Mike, teams had to go to a market and buy items for a local orphanage using the team's own cash resources.

Teams must take a picture with Phuket Zoo's main mascot, Esso the tiger, then participate in an elephant show, involving being lightly stepped and squatted on by elephants. When the elephant show is finished, the tiger handler would hand them their picture, containing their next clue.

Teams must make their way to Nguan Choon Tong Herbs Shop in Old Phuket Town and ask the storekeeper to open one of 99 drawers until they opened one that contained their next clue. If the drawer the team chose did not contain a clue, they had to go to the back of the line before trying again.

Choice A: 100 Barrels
Teams must travel to Pae Yod to help prepare a fishing boat for ten days out at sea. They must choose one of six fishing boats, fill 47 barrels with water, and load the other 53 barrels on the upper deck. Once the fishing boat is properly prepared, they would receive their next clue.

Kisha & Jen and Mel & Mike chose this task.


Choice B: 2 Miles
Teams must transport a rickshaw, with one team member sitting in it, 2 miles from Wat Phutta Mongkhon Nimit to King Rama IX Park, where they would find their next clue. Teams may swap who is in the rickshaw and who is pulling at any point during the task. In the event of a flat tire, bicycle pumps would be provided alongside the rickshaws. Teams are not allowed to hire a cab to lead them to the park.

Jaime & Cara, Margie & Luke, Mark & Michael, and Tammy & Victor chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Wat Thep Nimit Temple to check in.
For coming in first place, Tammy & Victor won a trip for two to Oahu, Hawaii, provided by Travelocity.
