Having a Baby's Gotta Be Easier Than This is the tenth episode of The Amazing Race 14.


Route Markers

The order of departure from Banyan Lake are as follows:

  1. Kisha & Jen (1:48 pm)
  2. Tammy & Victor (1:49 pm)
  3. Margie & Luke (1:50 pm)
  4. Jaime & Cara (2:12 pm)

Teams must fly to Beijing. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to Liangzi Foot Massage Palace to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to drink a cup of Chinese medicinal tea, then endure a traditional therapeutic foot massage for 10 minutes. After the massage and another cup of tea, they would receive their next clue. In the event teams are unable to bear the painful part of the massage, they can tap one side of their chair and say "uncle" to signal the masseuse to stop. Doing so, however, would mean restarting the massage from the beginning.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by taxi to Guangcai Natatorium, where they will find their next clue.

Choice A: Sync
Teams would have to jump off of three-meter springboards and attempt to touch the water in unison. They have to score a five from the judges in order to receive their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Swim
Teams would have to don a pair of "" LZR Racer suits, then have to swim eight lengths of a 400 meter relay in the pool, with each team member alternating after two lengths (100 meters). When they've swam the whole eight lengths, they'll receive their next clue.

All of the teams chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to Drum Tower to meet with Phil, learning the leg was not over.

Despite being a midpoint, for arriving in first place, Jaime & Cara each won a jet ski.
