About 10 minutes to go. I'll be back for updates this week.

Do you want to split or you got it under control?

I'm happy to do it all

Legend has it that Denias Castle in Poland houses the ghost of a woman who appears nightly, this was the 8th pit stop in a race around the world

J/L and N/T will depart at 8:45 and 8:46 AM

"Fly to Tel Aviv, Israel"

Once there, teams must find the Asriali towers. At the roof of the tallest of the three buildings teams will find their next clue.

Jeff "It's almost like we're in an intersection with Nathan and Tyler"

Tyler and Nate lost about $150 that they had stockpiled from previous legs.

N/T had no money to buy a map.

N/T and J/L fly out at 2:50 PM to arrive at 12:20 AM

S/R depart 10:07 AM, they want to prove they can do what the men can do

D/K and M/T depart at 11:33 AM and 11:34 AM

Tom "Do you reckon Israel will be cold?"
Matt "It's over by Pakistan, I think."

Matt thinks they're hitting their straps and doing well now, shortly before noticing he's driving on the wrong side of the road.

Sam and Renae are happy to be going to Tel Aviv and 24 degree weather.

N/T and J/L's flight is DELAYED 55 minutes, allowing S/R and M/T to catch up.

Dave and Kelly are lost and missed the flight.

The first four teams are flying via Brussels, Dave and Kelly are on a flight that will arrive about 2 hours later.

Teams arrive in Tel Aviv and stereotypical Jewish accordian music starts up.

Nathan and Tyler's taxi cost $162, but they only have $160 so they are back to zero now.

N/T arrive first at the clue. ROADBLOCK

"Who is your driving force?"

Teams must take a train about 90kms, then the chosen team member must do a pretty basic shipping container task involving driving a small truck.

Renae feels a bit of pressure having to drive against four blokes.

The train is about 90 minutes away. Nathan and Tyler are talking to a local who loves Aussies, they ask for change.

First four teams are on the same train, Dave and Kelly are just landing they are disappointed to be last.

At the Roadblock there is an HoO- The gate opens at 6 AM.

Tom "The cement we laid down on was cold enough to give you piles in about 2 minutes"

Dave and Kelly are unsure whether they'll see other teams. The first four are worried because Dave drives trucks.

Dave and Kelly have caught up, but the other teams would much rather they didn't because of the energy Dave brings with him.

Matt and Tom are not worried about driving trucks.

Tyler is worried, Renae feels the pressure. Dave is having difficulty despite having "driven triple road trains" he can't get the trailer hitched on.

The task is very similar to the double decker bus task, if teams hit a cone they must start over.

Jeff seems to be doing okay, but he is worried that he won't be able to do it.

Tom has violin music and is doing well.

Dave: "I couldn't have been much more fatigued, so it was like driving drunk on that wharf."

Tom is reversing it back into the parking bay and then he'll be done. Jeff has panicked and swinging the wheel too hard.

Renae nudges a cone and must now restart.

Ad break.

And we're back

Barney Stinson is going to go for 7 girls in 7 days with no rejections

Luke is waving frantically at Jeff. Tom is reversing into his bay and is done. Cowboys leave the Roadblock first

Teams must now travel to Tel Aviv and the area called Old Jaffa, referred to in both testaments of the bible. Once there, teams must search for the Hasimpta Theatre to find their next clue.

Matt and Tom are going to take a taxi. Jeff is still backing in, Tyler has finished.

Jeff was struggling, but is done with the task. Matt and Tom have found a taxi, and Tyler and Nathan are also getting one. Jeff and Luke are running away from the dock. Jeff is crying and feeling victorious because he hasn't let Luke down.

Dave has backed his trailer in and he's done. Just Sam and Renae left there now.

Dave: "Anyone still doing it?"
Kelly: "Yeah, Renae"
Dave: "Good. Bad luck Renae."

Renae is backing in, she's finished it. Renae feels proud to be succeeding at "Lifting stuff, moving stuff, cutting stuff, driving stuff"

Matt and Tom and Nathan and Tyler are at the next clue and they must now answer 5 questions about other teams, both team members must get both correct.

Which relationship do you most envy?

Which teams would be first to lend a helping hand?

Which team would you pair up with if the race was a foursome?

Which team has been most strategic?

Which team most deserves to win?

Nathan put Richard and Joey as most strategic. Jeff and Luke are also matching.

Nathan:
1- C/A Tyler matches
4- R/J Tyler picks K/D

Matt and Tom have matched all five successfully on the first try.

DETOUR- Teams must travel to Jerusalem Beach

FIND UNSEEN- Use metal detectors to find a key, there are dozens buried but only one that will unlock a chest with their next clue.

MAKE THIRTEEN- Play Matcod and hit the ball back and forth 13 times without letting it touch the ground.

Matt and Tom choose to Make Thirteen.

Tyler doesn't know who to put for the relationship envy because "I don't envy anybody."

Tyler can't believe that anybody would choose an eliminated team for most strategic.

Dave is hungry, tired and very, very grumpy.

Renae: "Dave's been really really negative"

The girls are keeping their distance because they don't want to pick up any negativity.

D/K and the girls are at the match task.

Kelly puts themselves for relationship envy, puts the girls for helping hand.

Sam & Renae have talked to eachother about it, BUT! Sam read question 2 wrong, she read it as "Which team would you help" and put Anne Marie and Tracy.

And Back. Sam calls it the most challenging challenge yet.

Dave is struggling because he thinks completely different to Kelly

Nathan doesn't think Tyler knows what "strategic" means

Matt and Tom's taxi driver plays Matcod a lot, he claims to be very very good at it. The Cowboys are struggling a bit with the game.

Dave and Kelly have matched with Jeff and Luke on the most strategic team.

Jeff and Luke have finally matched on the most strategic team and they're away. They share a few sentences on stretegic.

Matt is baking in the sun, but they've hit a rhythym and they are finished.

Teams must now drive themselves 200 kilometers to the Pit Stop: Masada. Built by King Herod and overlooking the Dead Sea, it is one of the most significant sites in Israel.

Matt: "I need you to be ace on that stuff today Tom. Please, mate."

Tyler has matched number 4, while Dave is struggling with number 1 and Renae is having trouble with number 2.

J/L and N/T are at Detour.

Nathan and Tyler "live in Bondi and used to see these Europeans in speedos playing this bat and ball game and we used to laugh at em. Now its us, luckily we weren't wearing speedos."

Jeff and Luke get to 12, then lose it. Jeff throws his bat.

And we're back.

Jeff and Luke are still struggling, even though Jeff has played lots of Tennis.

Luke: "You spat your dummy all over the beach."

Nathan and Tyler are having a lot of trouble

Dave finally has all five after putting themselves as the team they most envy.

Sam and Renae slaps down every team for question 2 and finally gets it. Sam is distraught that she screwed up and is mostly happy that they still have a chance. They pass D/K in a taxi and couldn't be happier about it.

Jeff and Luke have been slamming it back and forth  and finally realise doing soft lobs will be easier. They then proceed to get about 20.

Nathan makes a run and dive at the ball to rack up 13. They get stuck in the parking lot and can't pay, two girls pay for them to get out and hand them their phone number

All the girls are having difficulty with the bat and ball task, Sam and Renae are looking for the keys and instead found a coin. Also "about 50 bottle tops"

Dave and Kelly are having loads of trouble with the bat and balls,

Sam and Renae "started going a little bit Cookoo in the sand, while Kelly is taking a break to put sunscreen on while Dave lectures her. Dave is tired and sore and has had a gutful, while the girls hope they take a penalty.

And we're back. Dave and Kelly are having a lot of trouble but "There's no way in hell we're gonna dig for keys in the sand."

Matt and Tom give a shoutout to The Castle and give us a "How's the serenity?"

Luke hopes Matt and Tom got lost and they're maybe in first.

Jeff is worried that they may have taken a wrong turn and are in Iraq, so what would you do? That's right, Ask a guy carrying an M-16 He tells them that they've gone too far though.

Matt and Tom reach Mosada and are checked in as team number 1.

As the winners of this leg they receive a $5000 personal computer package from Bing Lee.

Jeff and Luke check in at number two, to rousing cheers from a crowd.

At the beach, Sam and Renae have found another key and its the right one, so they're off.

Dave misses a shot and chucks his bat.

Renae wants them to be the last girls standing.

D/K have finished their task and feel they can catch S/R because they have a good map.

N/T have taken a wrong turn and are on the wrong side of Mosada.

And I swear I just head Sam say "We're on the other side of it, now we're in Iran."

Sam and Renae have driven to the wrong side of Mosada and have now said "We have to go all the way back to Iran."

Ad break-

Question: Am I mis-hearing Iran? Is there some place in Israel that sounds like it?

They call the Gaza Strip Mini-Iran because of the Hamas regime there, but I doubt they are there...

And we're back. Sam and Renae turned off of the 31, the same error that N/T made.

Dave and Kelly are driving and following their map well. They are exhausted.

Sam thinks they're last, Nathan and Tyler aren't confident.

The surfers come in at number 3 and they can't believe it. Nate was speechless for 20 minutes.

Sam and Renae are checking in as number four AT A PLACE THAT ISNT THE MOSADA

Seriously, we need screencaps of that and we need to find where this is.

Dave and Kelly are driving into the night, they're pulling into a McDonalds to get a coffee.

Grant comes to meet them at the Maccas. Grant informs them that the other 4 teams have checked in and they are eliminated.

Dave is disappointed that they couldn't make it to the Pit Stop.

Next time-

The finish lines in sight, but the strain is starting to show.

As teams race through the holy city will one cruicial mistake be the end for Tyler and Nathan?

Teams are going to Jerusalem and doing the cross carry task.

I'm guessing the 200 kilometer figure came because teams were prohibited from travelling through the West Bank (Honestly I thought teams might have been given drivers for security reasons.

I'm guessing teams will have to follow this rule again as they go from Mosada to Jerusalem next episode. It's a lot faster to cut through the West Bank between the two, but a lot less safe.
