If the fisher is satisfactory of their world, they will get their next clue.

Teams must make their way on foot to Kisariate Jbala Souk and finds a merchant with the Travelocity roaming gnome, and greet him the phrase "As-salam Alaykum" ("Peace be with you"). He will then hand them their gnome, who will accompany them for the remainder of the leg and their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to first make their way to the Tangier American Legation Museum, where they will assist their Travelocity roaming gnome with a mission. He will zipline across from the museum to another rooftop, and they will need to find where his zipline lead to get their next clue. Afterward, they will need to head to the Kasbah Museum, where he will zipline a second time, and have to find him on top of a second rooftop. Fianlly, they will need to go to to Tele Boutique and find a payphone. Using the provided coins in the gnome's pouch, they will hear a secret message "Sabah al-khair" (Good morning), tell the shopkeeper the phrase, and head back to their partner at Kisariate Jbala Souk before opening their next clue. The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Choice A: Drop It Off
Teams must pick up a set of orders and produce at Grand Socco for three different shops, where they need to deliver it Moroccan style, by dragging the produce in baskets, and need to exchange the produce for a receipt, which are stamped.

  • This episode's title was said by Trevor, while stacking fish at the Tangier fish port.
  • The hint for the Roadblock, "Who's ready to rock the kasbah?", is a reference to the 1982 song by The Clash, Rock the Casbah.
