The Amazing Race Wiki

He Can't Swim, but He Can Eat Cow Lips! is the eighth episode of The Amazing Race 10.


The game's newest twist shocks the racers and forces rival teams to set aside their differences and work together.

One team starts the leg with a huge handicap and will need to pull out all the stops in order to stay in the game. The Racers also struggle to complete an unappetizing task of consuming a local delicacy. Every second counts as several teams run neck-and-neck in a finish to the mat.[2]


Route Markers[]

The order of departure from Château Bel-Ombre are as follows:

  1. Dustin & Kandice (3:00 am)
  2. Tyler & James (3:05 am)
  3. Rob & Kimberly (3:09 am)
  4. Erwin & Godwin (4:04 am)
  5. Lyn & Karlyn (4:05 am)
  6. David & Mary (4:08 am)

Teams must fly to Antananarivo, Madagascar. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to the Black Angel statue at Lake Anosy, where they would find their next clue.

At the Black Angel Statue, the teams encountered an Intersection, where two teams must work together until further notice.

The teams that Intersected are as follows:

The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after finding their clue at the Black Angel Statue. The intersected teams must travel by van 2.5 miles to Analakely Market and each eat one full serving of beef muzzle, a French-inspired local delicacy. When they have cleaned their plates, the two teams would win the Fast Forward. Rob & Kimberly and Tyler & James won the Fast Forward.

Choice A: Long Sleep
The intersected teams must travel by van 2.2 miles to an open market, where they must wrap 8 mattresses with a cover and deliver them on foot approximately 1 mile through the streets of Antananarivo to a provided address. When the delivery is complete, the homeowner would hand them their next clue.

David & Mary, Dustin & Kandice, Erwin & Godwin, and Lyn & Karlyn chose this task.

Choice B: Short Letter
The intersected teams must travel by van 3.5 miles to a paper working station, where they must work together to successfully make 28 pieces of handcrafted paper. Once the artisan signals that they have correctly made their paper, they would receive their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams, who are no longer intersected, must make their way to Tohotohobato Ambondrona Analakely, where they would find their next clue.

"Who can cut through the red tape?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must search the the steep staircases at Tohotohobato Ambondrona Analakely and find four different vendors with a matching rubber stamp to the one in their clue: a boat, train, airplane, and car. Once they have collected all four stamps, they must make their way to Cathedral Andohalo, where their teammate will be waiting, to check in.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

For coming in first, Dustin & Kandice won a trip to the Kona coast on Hawaii's Big Island, including a helicopter tour.
