In Episode 4: This is the longest leg in Amazing Race history.

This leg is a continuation from last week. Bates and Anthony are the 3rd team to depart. They are on their way to Bali.

Bates and Anthony are on the second flight scheduled to arrive 3 ½ hours later than the first flight.

They are headed to the Monkey Forest. They have to place coconuts in the open and have the monkeys open the coconut. The clue is in the coconut.
Roadblock: Sandy bottom or fruity top
In Sandy Bottom: Transport sand from a river to a brickmaker.
In Fruity Top: Assemble a ‘Gebogan’, which is a religious tribute.
Bates and Anthony are the last team to get to the detour. They will have to make up a lot of time. The brothers do the Fruity Top.

Dave and Connor are team number two at this point and deserve a lot of credit.  They are racing with an injury. Bates and Anthony are in last place and are doing Fruity Top.

Roadblock: Racers must pick a surfboard, which represents a location from a previous pitstop, and carry it down the cliff to the beach. This will be a memory challenge.

Dave and Connor are team number one and win $5000.00 each.  Pam and Winnie are team number two. Max and Katie are team number three.

Bates And Anthony are making up time.  Jessica and John are arguing and losing time.  This is the team that is gunning for the hockey brothers. Now Wynonna and Chuck are going after the Battaglia brothers. The alliance of the Battaglia brothers, Caroline and Jennifer, are having a melt down.

Caroline and Jennifer are team number four.

Bates and Anthony are in 8th place at this time and gaining time.

Bates picks up the right surf board and puts it back.

Joey and Meghan are team number five.

Mona and Beth are team number six.

Bates and Anthony are team number seven.

Chuck and Wynonna are team number eight.

John is in denial that he may have lost.

Jessica and John are the last team to arrive and have been eliminated with an express pass that they never used. They will go down as one of the dumbest teams in Amazing Race History. This is the team that was going to bring down the Battaglia brothers.

Next week: Dave and Connor are still running and there is a double U-Turn ahead. Stay Tuned!
