The roadblock was one team member had to carry a flag and their rucksack from the 4508m altitude marker up the mountain, though it didn't say how far, then plant the flag at the top to get the next clue.

Thank you... Detour?

One detour was using a traditional bow and arrow of the DongBa people the teams had to score 100 points by hitting the target (it looked like a regular bow and arrow target).  Only Tameka & Elena finished this part of the detour.  The other detour was carrying things through the DongBa village.  First each team member had to load a lot of firewood into traditional basket style backpacks and carry it to one house.  Then from that house each team member had to carry a big jug full of alcohol to another place.  From there each team member had to carry a drum to the final point of this detour.  They had to bang a drum a few times then the guy would give them the clue.  Hao Fei Er broke her alcohol jug when she was putting it down at the destination and had to carry another one from the firewood house.  Mary also broke her alcohol jug and had to carry another one.  Matt was having trouble getting his firewood backpack on and all the firewood fell out so he had to repack it.

I'm a little upset at Mary & Cecilia. A guy told them he knew where the route marker was and they ignored him, and they even told Simon & Katherine that he didn't know where he was going. Then later he drives up in his car and takes them there. Or maybe I'm wrong and I just got confused.

There was another voice-over error this week.  Alan's voice-over said Elena and Tameka had to make 20 cake things in the speed bump, but it turned out they only had to make 10.  It can't be that difficult to re-record the wrong voice-over can it?

Even though the press release hyped moments that didn't appear, I appreciated how grueling and physically taxing this leg was.

Thanks for the info about Rick, weihen.  I expected a local to be up there on the mountain and was sort of surprised that there was a Caucasian guy giving out the clues.


You got the gist of what happened with Mary & Cecilia, Best Loser.

From China Rush 2 official website
"A tedious roadblock task has all teams struggling to satisfy the clue-giver. While some teams arriving early are overtaken by teams arriving later.
Three teams got lost trying to find Yimahai Village, giving two other teams a long lead. One girl in the leading team suffers from exhaustion in the roadblock task, losing their lead.
In the end, one team tasted their first win while all teams got a big surprise. What happened in this episode?"

"one team tastes their first win" scares me, it better not be Simon! the only other team that hasn't won yet is Matt and Kylie and the preview for next week episode seems to indicate they do well, so I think they finally win a leg.

As for the "big surprise" I dont know what it is, could be a TBC? who knows.
Bring on the 21!

It is said that the following leg would be a double-length one.

Rumor has it that Kylie and Matt won the next leg. (Unverified)

After re-watching episode 8, I hope that Matthew & Kylie didn't shortchange that guy, whose van had smoke emanating from it, by a lot.

I've never enjoyed watching people on television shows stiff those who are just trying to earn a living.

Don't make one-at-a-time Roadblocks! It doesn't change the order at all.

 I find it odd how Simon wants Mary & Cecilia in the race. I like them, so I guess I like him now.

I don't really blame them.  In China, it is common for people to give you wrong directions rather than admit that they don't really know.  It's sometimes hard to figure out who to believe.

The girls Cecilia and Mary got eliminated this week.

This week's roadblock: Construct 5 characters from traditional Chinese shadow theatre.  Each team member had lots of parts of each puppet, and had to put each one together correctly and tie the joints together with string. 

This week's detour:  Spin it or Stack it.  In spin it, the teams had to go to a honey farm, and take 2 honeycombs(?), brush all the bees off then put them in this machine.  They then have to turn a handle on the machine to spin the honeycombs around to get the honey.  Then they had to fill one jar with honey.  All teams except Lily and Jan did this one.
In stack it, the teams had to bale hay into 5 bales, tying each bale with two pieces of rope.  They then had to carry the bales across a small river and stack them like the other stacks already there.

Other tasks:  The teams had to figure out the ingredients of '8 treasure tea', and the shifu would taste it and check if they had all 8 ingredients.  If they got it wrong 3 times in a row, they would have a 15 minute penalty before trying again.  Only Matt & Kylie got a penalty but this didn't affect their place.

Before the detour the teams had to go to a monastery and light 6 candles and then the monk would give them the next clue.

After the detour the teams had to go to the Ming great wall remains to get the next clue.

While I am really really disappointed that the girls have been eliminated, I'm really happy and proud of them for making it through 10 legs, only about 10 female teams have made it through double-digit legs (not including double occurences, Dustin and Kandice, Kisha and Jen), and it's all made the more amazing after being yielded twice and barely surviving three legs each with a second-to-last-place finish. They performed strong and left their mark on the race.

It sucked knowing that either Kylie or the girls would be eliminated, it's like choosing between your children, oh well, what happens happens. The race goes on.

Just please don't let Simon make it to the final three, or worse.... I can't even mention it ... ... ... ... ... win *SHRIEK!*
I like Katherine though.

This season has been truly amazing, without needing to leave the country, it really goes to show that the race can be done well without the flashiness of numerous countries, at its heart, it's an adventure, all about the journey, not the destination.
Bring on the 21!

It was a hilarious episode. Wonderful! :tup: It was entertaining to see 90's sisters crying aloud, shouting their butts hurt :lol3:

***BEHIND THE SCENE***

Because of those bees, Cecilia had a injection after this episode was shot. Then the siblings went on travels, enjoying the prizes.

This week's stream was pretty bad.  It kept repeating scenes/jumping ahead and was buffering much more than usual.

This week is in Penglai in Shandong

Task 1:  Each team member had to eat 2 live sea cucumbers.  After finishing the task the team had to go to Yujiale fishing dock to get the next clue the next morning.

Next Task:
Intersection Roadblock
The teams have to go out to marked buoys on fishing boat, haul up fishing nets together until they find the clue.
Fei Er and Lili do the task together
Kylie and Katherine do the task together

Fei Er & Lili find the clue first.

Clue:
Go to a winery to get the next clue

Detour: Find the wine or Count the vine
Count the vine: Count the number of vines in a 5 acre section of the winery.
Find the wine: Go into the cellar of the winery and there will be some wine glasses set up, where each pair of glasses represent a number.  Only four numbers are available at the start, then the teams have to use what they know to figure out what 5 pairs of wine glasses set up somewhere else represent, then tell the code to the guy and if it's correct they have to go and find the corresponding barrel number and roll it outside.

Fei Er and Sun Bin decide to do the counting.
Lili and Jan decide to do the code.

Kylie and Katherine find the clue in the nets.
Lili and Jan change detours.
Kylie and Matt arrive and do the code.
Simon & Katherine arrive and do the code.

Sun Bin and Fei Er guess an answer but it's wrong.
Simon & Katherine crack their code, find the barrel and get the clue.

Clue:
Goto Sanxianshan theatre, and dress in traditional Chinese costumes, and the teams must learn a song to play on the musical bell instrument (lots of traditional bells hanging from a pole, kind of like a xylophone).  The teams have 10 minutes of practice time then must play the song in unison.  If they fail to pass they must wait 15 minutes before trying again.

Jan & Lili change detour again, then crack the code, find the barrel and leave.

Sun Bin and Fei Ee get the answer for vines.

Simon & Kathering fail the bell task first time.

Matt & Kylie crack the code.

Jan and Lili fail the bells first time

Matt & Kylie get their barrel and get out of there.

Simon & Katherine fail the bells the second time

Sun Bin & Fei Er pass the bells the first time

Clue:
Jet ski to ancient coastal fortress (Beiwodu residence) for the next clue

Lili and Jan pass the bells second time

Sun Bin and Fei Er take their jetski

Simon & Katherine pass the bells third time

Sun Bin and Fei Er arrive at the fortress

Matt & Kylie arrive at the bells

Sun Bin & Fei Er find the cluebox

Clue:  Go to the platform above gate.  This is the pit stop for this leg

Lili and JaN arrive at the fortress

Kylie and Matt fail the bells first try

Sun Bin and Fei Er are first to the pitstop

Kylie and Matt fail the bells the second time

Simon and Katherine arrive at the fortress

Lili and Jan arrive at the pit stop second.

Simon hasn't really been annoying for the past few episodes. Do I sense a surprise victory? I'm also glad that the eliminated teams will be at the end. No matter who wins, it will be better than the ending of China Rush 1.

If I'm correct just by watching the preview, the finish line is a few feet away from the start of China Rush 1. Which is odd because the finish line for China Rush 1 is just about a block away from the starting line of this season.
