In the last episode there was a Double U-Turn…

Pam and Winnie U-Turn Meghan and Joey. Meghan and Joey U-Turn Chuck and Wyonna. Lets see how that plays out this week.

Leg 6 (Hanoi, Vietnam → Maun, Botswana )

Pam and Winnie are the first to depart. There are 3 flights that are departing to the next stop where they will get their next clue.

Bates and Anthony are the 4th team to depart. They are still working with Caroline and Jennifer, who are the 5th to depart. So the two families set out together to beat the other teams.

Chuck and Wyonna and Meghan and Joey all find out about the U-Turn.  They put a contract out on the teams who slighted them by vowing to bring them down.

The country singers help the hockey players find out what country they are going to. Caroline and Jennifer and Anthony and Bates are on the first flight.

The hockey brothers are currently in first place, while the country singers are in 2nd place.

ROADBLOCK: Search for a scorpion in the Kalahari Desert.
“Who Wants To Make A New Friend”. Teams have to dig up a scorpion, a bushman’s best friend.

Bates does this challenge and is instructed by the bushman to dig in a hole for the scorpions, and he does it. Caroline does this challenge. Max is right behind them.

Bates and Anthony are in first place. If they can keep up this pace, they will be neck and neck with Caroline and Jennifer and Max and Katie. For some reason Katie thinks her PhD is getting her through this race. Really?  Did she get a PhD in scorpions?

DETOUR Fire:  Involves starting a campfire by rubbing sticks together.
DETOUR Fowl: Build and set a snare to catch a guinea fowl.

Almost all teams choose Fire. Bates and Anthony are on their way.

Anthony starts this task.  It takes a lot of stamina.

Bates and Anthony are the first to start the fire and now have to go with the bushmen to a Safari Camp that is the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. Before they leave they try and tell the country singers how they started the fire. Bates and Anthony are team number one.

Pam and Winnie are team number 2.
Chuck and Wyonna are team number 3.
Joey and Meghan are team number 4.
Caroline and Jennifer are team number 5.
Mona and Beth are team number six.

Max and Katie are the last team to arrive, but this is a non-elimination leg which means that they will get a speed bump on the next leg, which is an extra task that they will have to do.

Next week: Stay tuned when Chuck and Wynonna can’t row a canoe and no one knows how to work with donkeys.
