Teams must fly to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Once there, teams must make their way to the Foreign Correspondents' Club and whisper to one of the editors, asking for their "next assignment", to receive their next clue.

Teams would be given a duplicate of a picture of a man and woman (King Norodom Sihanouk and Jacqueline Kennedy) and were instructed to find the hotel suite named after the woman in the picture, which they must figure out was located at the Hotel Le Royal. Once they have found the same picture in the suite named after Kennedy at the hotel, teams would receive their next clue.

Choice A: Cover
Teams must make their way to the Russian Market and find a marked motorcycle helmet shop. They must choose four helmets and sell them using just their persuasion to a family of four, consisting of two adults and two children, for $10. Once the sale was completed, they must hand the shopkeeper the money in exchange for their clue.

Only Lance & Keri chose this task.


Choice B: Wrap
Teams must make their way to the Russian Market and find stalls 980 and 981, where the shopkeeper would hand them a silk scarf. They must then search the market for a woman wearing an identical scarf and bring the woman back to the stall. Once they have correctly matched the two scarves, the shopkeeper would hand them their next clue.

Brian & Ericka, Flight Time & Big Easy, Gary & Matt, Maria & Tiffany, Meghan & Cheyne, Mika & Canaan, Sam & Dan, and Zev & Justin chose this task.

Teams must make their way on foot to Wat Toul Tom Pong, where they would find their next clue.

"Who's ready to go bananas?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must put on a monkey mask and tail, then perform three Classical Khmer monkey dance maneuvers as demonstrated by their monkey dancer. If their performance was to the satisfaction of the monkey dancer, he would give teams their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to Wat Phnom to check in.
For coming in first place, Sam & Dan each won a motorcycle.

Trivia

  • Zev & Justin revealed that they won a pair of motorcycles for initially coming first, which was presumably re-awarded to Sam & Dan.[2]
  • In the Elimination Station web series, it was revealed that Zev & Justin lost Zev's passport while searching for the Roadblock clue in a dark temple at Wat Toul Tom Pong. Justin had opened their fanny pack to pull out a headlight, not noticing that Zev's passport had fallen out. The passport was later turned in at an American diplomatic mission in Phnom Penh, which Zev & Justin were able to retrieve after their elimination.[3]
  • The episode title is said by Justin Kanew.
