Teams must travel by taxi to Antika Jaya Padang Restaurant to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to carry twenty dishes of food in their hands and serve them to waiting diners. If they drop any of the dishes, they have to start over. Once successful, teams will be given their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by train to Bangil. During their train ride, teams must keep their eyes open for their next clue.

Choice A: Lion's Head
Teams would have to participate in a reog dance by following dance instructions along a procession route while wearing a 40-pound lion's head mask over their heads and shoulders. Teams will receive their next clue after successfully completing the procession.

Abbie & Ryan, Caitlin & Brittany, Gary & Will, James & Abba, Jaymes & James, Natalie & Nadiya, Rob & Kelley, and Trey & Lexi chose this task.

Choice B: Egg Head
Teams would have to purchase four eggs from a local market, and then participate in a custom called debus, a show of strength where one of the many variations involves frying an egg on one's own head. Local magicians will light a coconut half on fire atop each team member's head and use the fire to fry up the eggs the teams had brought to the task. Racers then have to eat the cooked eggs with a serving of hot sauce before they can receive their next clue.

Only Josh & Brent chose this task.

Teams must travel by rickshaw to Perliman Pos I guardhouse to find their next clue.

At Perliman Pos I, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available and anonymously. Rob & Kelley used the first slot of the U-Turn on Gary & Will. Gary & Will attempted used the second slot of the U-Turn on Rob & Kelley, however Rob & Kelley already passed the U-Turn before Gary & Will, thus having no effect on them.

Since Gary & Will completed the Lion's Head Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Egg Head Detour before continuing.

Teams must travel by rickshaw to the greenhouse of the SMA Negeri 1 Bangil High School to check in.

For coming in first place, Abbie & Ryan won a trip for two to Fiji, provided by Travelocity.
