Next up is Dhaka, Bangladesh, the world's most densely populated city. The first clue warns racers that a double U-turn—the show's first—lies ahead. Peter Pan and Tinkerbell immediately strategize to give the docs the double U-turn shaft. "I just don’t want to lose to a pair of girls," PP says, which elicits a laugh from Tinkerbell. Way to support the sisterhood.
PP and Tinkerbell arrive at the airport first and book a flight that lands in Bangladesh at noon. While they go off to eat, the other teams press the booking agents to get them earlier flights. Hairy and the hairdresser and the tatted couple score early-morning planes, stealing the lead from the newly engaged couple. The rest of the teams are stuck on the flight that gets in at noon.
Upon landing, racers head to Sundarban Square Supermarket, where they must find a sugarcane cart, use a press to squeeze juice out of the sugarcane, then fill a mug with the yellow nectar, which a teammate must drink.
Next the teams trek to Dhaka River Port, where they hit a detour: balanced meal or balanced bricks. In meal, they take a tiffin, a midday meal in a stack of interlocking containers; travel across harbor to the cargo ship; and hoist the the tiffin tins to the deck. Then they must return 10 empty containers. For bricks, teams have to carry 100 unbroken bricks via baskets on their heads from a supply barge to a shop.
After finishing the brick-carrying, hairy and the hairdresser find the double U-turn. A U-turn comes at the end of a detour. A team picks another group to go back and do the other detour task that it did not choose. In the case of a double U-turn, two teams have the chance to send two other groups to complete a second detour challenge. The hairies choose the home shopping hosts, whom they see as formidable opponents.
The tatted couple choose meal, and they work together well to finish quickly. They consider U-turning Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, but surprisingly, they decide it's pointless since they are so far ahead and opt not to use the U-turn.
The docs haul ass, get to the clue box and decide to U-turn Peter Pan and Tinkerbell. So Peter Pan and Tinkerbell and the home shopping hosts have to do the bricks detour. The couple weren't happy about it. "It is the worst feeling to come up to the board and see our faces, especially when we see who did it," Tinkerbell says. Yeah, too bad you were bested by a pair of girls, huh? The normally happy-go-lucky home shopping ladies start yelling at one another. Brook presses Claire to hurry, even though she feels sick. "I don't run marathons like you. If you wanted a partner like that, you should have chose a different partner," Claire says.
Teams go to Nazira Bazaar, where one member must assemble a rickshaw in a mechanics shop. Hairdresser decides to get her hands dirty and do the challenge, but she's intimidated when seeing the kit. "Oh my goodness, there’s lots of nuts and bullets," she says. She builds it pretty quickly, but forgets to fix the chain so she has to take time to troubleshoot.
Even through the home shopping hosts got U-turned, they meet up with the docs at the rickshaw station. Then Peter Pan and Tinkerbell arrive. "How’s that PhD helping you?" PP taunts Nat (she doesn't have a PhD; she has an MD). "Big smart doctor can’t put a bicycle together." But Nat finally gets her rickshaw in one piece. Meanwhile, Brook can't get the bell fastened, and Tinkerbell struggles to install the seat. The two are neck and neck.
The pit stop for this leg is Lalbagh Fort, a 300-year-old castle. Hairy and the hairdresser come in first and win a $15,000 Discover gift card. The tatted couple arrives second and the docs in third.
It was close, but the home shopping hosts arrive fourth to the pit stop. That means Peter Pan and Tinkerbell have to go back to Neverland. "Even though we didn’t win the million i still feel like a very, very rich man," Peter Pan says. "I really did get the greatest prize of all. I get to come out of this engaged to a wonderful, wonderful woman."
Brook shakes her bootie for a crowd, and tatted guy is mean to his girlfriend—shocker—again.
