You're Taking My Tan Off is the ninth episode of The Amazing Race 25.
The order of departure from Fort Manoel are as follows:
Teams must fly to Singapore. Due to the limited number of flights out of Valletta, teams are given tickets to Paris, France, but must make their own arrangements to Singapore. However, they are not obligated to use them and may look for another itinerary. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to Changi Village, where they must take a bumboat to Pulau Ubin and search for a marked coconut stand. They must then finish drinking coconut milk from a coconut to receive their next clue.
The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after receiving their clue at the Pulau Ubin coconut stand. Teams must travel to Sentosa's WaveHouse and surf for two minutes to keep their balance without falling on an artificially-generated wave. If both team members can stay on their surfboards for two minutes, they will win the Fast Forward. If more than one team was present, any team that fails must go to the back of the line before they are allowed to try again. Adam & Bethany won the Fast Forward.
Teams must make their way to the Marina Bay Sands and go to the 53rd floor, where they would find their next clue.
"Who wants to be a funambulist?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must tightrope walk between the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands hotel to another tower of the hotel to pick up their next clue at the other tower, and then make a trip back to the first tower before reuniting with their partner.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Choice A: China Cups
Teams must make their way to Hong San See temple, where they must undergo a session of cupping therapy. After a painful back massage, scraping the skin, and then fire cupping, all of which are said to increase blood flow and remove toxins, they would receive their next clue from their masseuses.
Only Misti & Jim chose this task.
Choice B: Chilli Crabs
Teams must make their way to the Red House seafood restaurant at Robertson Quay, where must work crack open enough crab claws smothered in chilli sauce to collect crabmeat from the popular Singaporean dish of chilli crab. Once teams have 2 pounds of crabmeat, the head chef would give them their next clue.
Teams must make their way to Fort Canning, where they would find their next clue.
At Fort Canning, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Amy & Maya attempted to use the first slot of the U-Turn on Adam & Bethany, however Adam & Bethany won the Fast Forward, thus having no effect on them. The second slot went unused.
Teams must search for their next clue at one of the five official Merlion statues in Singapore, two at Merlion Park, one at Mount Faber, one at Sentosa, and one at Tourism Court, with the statue at Mount Faber being the correct one.
