With only five teams left "Everybody's a lot more desperate" Joyce says on her way from Krakow to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Uchenna and Joyce take a gamble on a tight connection through Frankfurt, while Danny and Oswald book flights through Paris. Eric and Dani try to book online alongside Charla and Mirna, but the cousins don't share the hotel computers. Eric manages to give them the business at the airport, but Charla and Mirna are the ones with the earliest departure to Kuala Lumpur.
In Frankfurt, Uchenna and Joyce's gamble on a short connection looks bad as they arrive. On the horn with an airline agent, Uchenna even says "Our life depends on it." Eh, right. They're stuck while the other teams deplane in Malaysia.
Charla and Mirna, now in he lead, snag a train to Putra, then on to the Batu Caves. DuKa enlists a local for directions, but they seem to be headed the wrong way. Oswald, Danny, Eric and Danielle all jump on another train.
At the caves, teams find another clue that directs them to the Kampung Baru Mosque to find a yield--will Eric and Dani get hit by Charla and Mirna in retribution? Surprisingly, no. But Team Beauty, just minutes behind the cousins, has no such qualms--they yield Eric and Dani.
Next up is the Detour: Artistic Expression or Cookie Confection. Teams can either apply batik to fabric or gobble cookies to find a single one with a licorice center. Eric should excel--it's just like brainless the beer challenge he tackled in season 9. Charla and Mirna go the cookie route, but DuKa knows that 600 is a lot of boxes of cookies.
Mirna has gone off the deep end with all the sugar: "We have a lot of fans it turns out here in Malaysia that recognize us." While the girls go bonkers, Eric and Danielle find out they've been yielded. Obvs, they ain't happy: "All they really did is make enemies for no reason...People are just shady bitches," Dani says. Eric calls the Beauty Queens "Dirty Pirate Hookers"-- Ron Burgundy's classic line has to be one of the best insults in the history of reality TV.
While they wait for the timer to run out, the Detour, Charla and Mirna switch to fabric dying and Oswald and Danny are right behind them. Dustin and Kandice are already on to the Road Block: picking up old newspapers. Dustin gets on a bike to ride around collecting 'em by yelling out in Bahasa. A local even tells her there should be no problem getting free newspaper given her looks.
Mirna recruits some neighborhood kids to push her bike, and then tells them not to do drugs. She's in fact creating "the next generation of Charlas and Mirnas." (Please, say it ain't so.) Dani crashes her bike while Danny tries to buy some papers of a local biker. When the biker won't sell, Danny heads to an Indonesian 7-11 to buy some.
With the road block out of the way, Team Beauty is quickly on the way to this week's Pit Stop--where they're the first to arrive. That wins the team a pair of scooters. Wait, it seems like we're forgetting something... Ah yes, Uchenna and Joyce. They finally make it to Kuala Lumpur! Too bad it's a day after everyone else--they won't be winning a second race.
The Pit Stop:
Charla and Mirna manage to come in second, while Uchenna and Joyce get sent packing. Is there no justice in the world? Dustin and Kandice look strong, but their yield didn't slow down Eric and Dani. Instead, the blondes managed to make enemies with all the other racers. Oswald and Danny keep coming up with the comic relief, but they're going to need to get vicious if they want to win this race.
Coming Next Week:
The Beauty Queens mix it up with Charla and Mirna while Danny and Oswald do some awesome stunt driving.
