Spoiler Alert: To find out where the Battaglia brothers place at the end of the race solve this puzzle:
 2nd place           

Dave and Connor depart first. Dave needs to have surgery and this team is reconciled to the fact that this will be their last leg.

Max and Katie announce that they will definitely U Turn a team.

Anthony and Bates are the 7th team to depart and if they don’t make up some time, they could be U Turned.

Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) to Noi Bai International Airport (HAN) Racers are on their way to Vietnam.

Trang Tien Plaza, Hanoi .

It looks like there will be an equalizer here.  All teams have to wait for the next clue in the morning.

Dave and Conner are eliminated from the race due to Dave’s injury.

Anthony and Bates are thrilled that Jessica and John have been eliminated and think that their alliance will now fall apart.

ROADBLOCK: Scan piles of photos and find one that says, ‘Glory to the younger generation’, which is written in Vietnamese.

Winnie and Pam are the first to get through the roadblock.
Anthony and Bates are the fifth to get through the roadblock. Anthony does this roadblock.

Now they have to do a bamboo dance.
Bates and Anthony move to 4th place.

The detour:  involves playing human chess.
The detour:  find ingredients and make a Vietnamese soup called Pho Ga.

Bates and Anthony are currently in 2nd place and running…

Pam and Winnie are way ahead and are in the lead.

Double U-Turn…

Pam and Winnie U-Turn Meghan and Joey. Now Joey and Meghan have to complete the detour that they chose not to do in order to check in. Meghan and Joey U-Turn Chuck and Wyonna.

Pam and Winnie are team number one.

The Battaglia brothers find that they have not been U-Turned.

Max and Katie are Team number two.
Mona and Beth are team number three.
Bates and Anthony are team number four.

Joey and Meghan are starting the second detour.
Wyonna and Chuck have not finished the first detour and do not know that they have been U-Turned.

Caroline and Jennifer are team number five.

Chuck and Wyonna find that they have been U-Turned and think that Joey and Meghan have U-Turned them.

Joey and Meghan come in as team number six.

Chuck and Wyonna are the last team to arrive – but since Dave and Connor have withdrawn from the race this is a non-elimination leg and they are still playing.

Next Week: Botswana jungle, eating scorpions ?  Lets look for Joey/Meghan or Pam/Winnie to be eliminated.
