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.

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.
