Oh, Wow! It's Like One of Those Things You See on TV! is the third episode of The Amazing Race 10.
Tempers flare between two teams when one team thinks the other team isn't playing fairly.
With no money in their pockets, one team is left behind while the others head off to their next destination. Another team loses their lead when they make a crucial mistake and board the wrong bus. Teams discover they will not be given any additional money for this leg of the Race and must earn it instead. Finally, a route marker evokes strong emotions in the Racers as they reflect on the sorrowful memories of a past war.
The order of departure from Hotel Mongolia are as follows:
Upon entering the prison, teams must find the flight suit belonging to John McCain, displayed somewhere within the prison walls, to find their next clue.
