Teams must travel by taxi to Prince Phillip Park and search for the Murut Long House to find their next clue

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to participate in a traditional Lansaran dance, in which the team member and a group of locals will bounce on a bamboo springboard. At the climax of the dance, the racer will use the springboard to be launched high enough to grab a flag of Sabah positioned above them, adjusted for their height. The teams will receive their next clue once they grab the flag.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must fly to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to the Jalan Ampang intersection, which is outside of the Petronas Towers, to find their next clue.

Due to limited flights, three teams will depart on the first flight, two teams will depart on the second, which leaves 90 minutes after the first, and three teams on the third flight, which departs 45 minutes after the second flight.

Choice A: Mix Master
Teams would have to train on how to scratch on a DJ table by a coach, and then have to perform in front of a DJ and the crowd, receiving the next clue if they were able to replicate a series of seven record scratches to the DJ's approval. If they did not perform the mix properly, they have to allow other teams in line to perform before they are allowed to try again.

Caroline & Jennifer, Flight Time & Big Easy, Jessica & John, and Leo & Jamal chose this task.

Choice B: Master Mix
Teams would have to stack seven cocktail glasses into a pyramid, and then use a stack of mixing glasses to pour different colorful cocktails into each glass simultaneously. This has to be done in such a way that none of the cocktails mix. Once they are successful, the team will receive their next clue.

Brendon & Rachel, Dave & Connor, Jet & Cord, and Margie & Luke chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Batu Caves to check in.

For coming in first, Jet & Cord won a trip for two to London, United Kingdom, provided by Travelocity.

For coming in last place, Brendon & Rachel will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
