There's a Lot of Nuts and Bullets is the ninth episode of The Amazing Race 17.
The order of departure from Al Alam Palace are as follows:
Teams must fly to Dhaka, Bangladesh. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi or rickshaw to Sundarban Square Supermarket, find a sugarcane stall and then press a sugarcane to collect its juice. One team member would then have to drink the juice to receive their next clue.
Choice A: Balanced Meal
Teams would have to travel to Dhaka Harbor and pick up 30 filled tiffin carriers and take them by boat to a larger boat in the harbor. After lifting the lunches onto the boat, teams will have to take 10 empty carriers back to shore where they can exchange them for their next clue.
Choice B: Balanced Bricks
Teams would have to travel to Dhaka Harbor and unload bricks from a brick barge and carry them to a shop in the market in baskets on their head. Once they have 100 unbroken bricks delivered, they will receive their next clue.
Only Jill & Thomas chose this task.
Teams must travel on foot to Sadarghat to find their next clue.
At Sadarghat, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Jill & Thomas used the first slot of the U-Turn on Brook & Claire. Nat & Kat used the second slot of the U-Turn on Chad & Stephanie.
Since Brook & Claire completed the Balanced Meal Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Balanced Bricks Detour before continuing.
Since Chad & Stephanie completed the Balanced Meal Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Balanced Bricks Detour before continuing.
