One Hot Camel is the eighth episode of The Amazing Race 23.

Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from the Yas Marina Circuit are as follows:

  1. Leo & Jamal (7:10 am)
  2. Nicole & Travis (7:16 am)
  3. Jason & Amy (7:23 am)
  4. Tim & Marie (7:44 am)
  5. Ally & Ashley (7:53 am)
  6. Nicky & Kim (8:02 am)

Teams must make their way on foot to the Yas Marina Circuit's pit row garage 14 and, using the Viking coins they retrieved in Norway, decipher a numeric code on the outside of the coins' bag, which would allow them to unlock a Ford Explorer, which they must then use to drive themselves to the Boudthib Endurance Village, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must drive dune buggies along a marked course in the Al Khatim Desert to find their next clue.

Teams must drive their dune buggies back to their car, and then drive themselves to the Al Ain Oasis, entering through gate 1. There, a local tree climber would retrieve their next clue from the top of a date palm tree.

Choice A: Wedding Guests
Teams must make their way to Al Jahili Fort and prepare machbūs, a traditional Emirati dish for wedding guests. After gathering and cutting up all of the necessary ingredients, they must then put it into a large pot and serve a finished dish to a wedding party to receive their next clue.

Only Nicky & Kim chose this task.


Choice B: Beauty Contest
Teams must make their way to Al Jahili Fort, where they must select a camel that met a set of breed guidelines, then dress it up for an upcoming camel show. If the judges are pleased with their camel selection, they would receive their next clue.

Ally & Ashley, Jason & Amy, Leo & Jamal, and Tim & Marie chose this task.

Nicole & Travis used their Express Pass to bypass the Detour. They did not choose a Detour task due to the Detour's singular location.

Teams must make their way on foot to Al Jahili Tower, where they would receive their next clue.

At Al Jahili Tower, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Nicole & Travis used the first slot of the U-Turn on Leo & Jamal. Tim & Marie used the second slot of the U-Turn on Nicky & Kim.

Since Leo & Jamal completed the Beauty Contest Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Wedding Guests Detour before continuing.

Since Nicky & Kim completed the Wedding Guests Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Beauty Contest Detour before continuing.

Teams must drive themselves to Wadi Adventure, where they would find their next clue.

At Wadi Adventure, Nicky & Kim would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. Nicky & Kim must swim across a generated wave pool, with a 6-foot high wave crashing down upon them once every 90 seconds. They must make it up the ladder on the other side of the pool without being pushed off before they are allowed to continue.

"Who likes rapid transit?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must ride down the largest man-made river rapids in the world and collect flags of three different colors, which they could then exchange for their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Mercure Grand Hotel at Jebel Hafeet to check in. For coming in first, Nicole & Travis won a choice of any two of Ford's EcoBoost vehicles.
