I Know Phil, Little Ol' Gorgeous Thing is the fourth episode of The Amazing Race 10.


While racing through Vietnam, teams must navigate their way through rough waters and around rocky islands.

Frustrated with their cab drivers, the leading team switches taxis three times en route to the next location. Once there, teams must decipher a cryptic clue in the dead of the night. At the Roadblock, teams must ascend and rappel a vertical 90-foot cliff at Hon Yen Ngua rock island in order to receive their next clue. One Racer injures their leg during the race, causing them to stop for medical attention.[2]
