I bet people on this version of the show have mad difficulties with the language barrier. I doubt any one in Sri Lanka speaks Ukranian (or any Cyrillic language) and there's no way anyone on the race speaks Hindi.

They can probably bond with English together. :lol: Also, somebody might do an Ernie & Cindy and learn the basics of as many languages as possible before racing. :P

Hindi is not the official language of Sri Lanka. Sinhala and Tamil are.

Some teams  tried to speak english (well, sort of english) and it helped sometimes. The biggest difficulty of leg 3 was definitely manure.

Getmegone, two questions please?

1. Tatiana & Natalia's photograph was rejected. Do you know why?
2. What is this Carlsberg thing we keep seeing, and why does it appear in such random locations?

1.  Chickens in cages also had to be in the picture (as well as a local wearing yellow shirt). Tatiana and Natalia forgot about that (just like I forgot to admit that in episode recap, fail).

2. Just beer ads.

Episode 4 recap.

1st clue: Go to Singapore.

All teams were on the same flight.

After arrival teams had to go to local business and trade center. The clue was placed inside a fountain:

 
1st. Constantine and Jacob (father and son)
2nd Alexandr and Olena (Life partners)
3rd  Roman and Anna (PMS-team)

Then there was a detour: "fly" or "walk".
"Fly" - take a jump using that thing: (it's called "J-max"):

"Walk" - Teams had to find "Swiss hotel". The next clue was on the 73rd floor.
But using elevator was forbidden - teams had to go on foot.


After detour:
1st. Alexey and Olena (jumped)
2nd Constantine and Jacob (jumped)
3rd Ihor and Vasil (walked)

New team title was discovered. Teams said that Irina and Andrey look like M&M's.

Roadblock: Teams had to climb up the wall. Nothing special.

But it was hard. Only two teams completed the roadblock - other teams quit this challenge and received 4 hour penalty.

Standings after roadblock:
1st Constantine and Jacob (Father and son)
2nd Anna and Roman
3rd Olena and Alexey (after 4 hour penalty)

Next clue: Take a picture with a hotel


Next clue: teams had to take a ride using this things
(I have no idea how it's called in English):


Taking a ride was available at 7 a.m. only but it didn't affect the standings because time gaps were not changed:


Irina and Andrey lost their camera and wasted much time on looking for it. Anna and Roman lost their camera too (but later)

Next clue: Send the postcard (the postcard can be traded for a picture of the hotel)

Standings after sending the postcards:
1. Constantine and Jacob
2. Olena and Alexey
3rd Queens

Next clue: find the way to the finish line. The clue was printed on flyers:


Boobs formed an alliance with Ihor and Vasil.



Standings at finish:

1. Constantine and Jacob


2. Olena and Alexey


3. Boobs


4. Ihor and Vasil


5. Tetjana and Natalia


6. Doctors


7. M&M's


8. PMS-team  - ELIMINATED.

This is what I found strange too. Last time there was no "You can only use your own camera" rule, but this time it was forbidden to use someone else's devices. It wasn't explained, just stated. Different legs - different rules. This actually sucks because Anna and Roman lost because of that. And M&M's lost much time too.

I'm not happy about the sudden rule change but I'm glad Team PMS is gone. There might be a good reason for the rule change though.

The postcards (or the things teams have to photograph) are totally going to turn up as the memory task.

Episode 5 recap.

In the beginning of the episode teams had to fly to Philippines. Once there, they had to find Malvar Street and there teams were instructed to find Delores. What they needed to figure out was that "Delores" was the name of a tricycle roving the street with "DELORES" painted on the front. Once they have figured this out, they may get their next clue from the driver. (c) Wikipedia.



1st to find Delores:
Olena & Alexey

2nd:
Constantine and Jacob

3rd:
Boobs

Roadblock: one team member needed to eat six fertilised duck embryos, a local delicacy known as balut. Once the team member finishes all six eggs, they will get their next clue (c) Wikipedia. xD 



1st after Roadblock:
Constantine & Jacob

2nd:
Alexey & Olena

3rd:
Natalia & Tetiana (yay, top-3, finally)

Then there was a usual task with postcard. This time teams had to take a picture of at least 1 team member and 20 locals, plus at least 4 of these locals had to wear hats, at least 1 had to have flowers in his/her hands and at least 1 of them had to hold a broom.



Many teams had some difficulties with that: they thought they didn't need 20 locals in one picture, so they made a couple of photo shots which were rejected, and much time was lost. Particularly, father and son were 1st at postcard station, but they did the task wrong, they had to come back to Malvar street (as it was almost impossible to find 20 locals near the postcard station), they took a picture of 20 locals and when they came back to station, they realized that they forgot to take a picture with a bloom, so they had to come back again. However Olena and Alexey managed to find 20 locals near the postcard station.

Standings after sending the postcard:
1st, 2nd and 3rd: Alexey & Olena, Doctors and Boobs (almost at the same time).

Detour: bottles or fish?
Bottles: teams had to search among thousands of bottles scattered around the island for the bottle containing the message with their next destination written on it (c) Wikipedia.



Fish:  teams had to count the number of fishes inside a container given to them. Once they have successfully counted the number of fishes amidst the distractions of the vendors, they will receive their next clue. (c) Wikipedia.



Standings after detour:
1st: Boobs
2nd: Ihor and Vasil (sportsmen)
3rd: Alexey and Olena. All teams picked "bottles".

After the detour teams were instructed to go to Sabang Beach by public transport (particularly - a local bus made from american jeeps).



Boobs, sportsmen and Olena & Alexey were 1st to arrive at bus station, but they decided not to wait for the next bus and rent a whole bus for themselves (each bus for one team, as they didn't arrive at the same time). According to rules, once teams rent a bus it is not more a public transport. So all there 3 teams received a 1 hour penalty.

The others teams didn't break that rule and they took a ride all by the same bus.


Standing at finish:

1st: Doctors


2nd: Father and Son


3rd: M&M's


4th: Natalia and Tetiana


5th: Boobs


6th: Sportsmen


Last to arrive: Alexey and Olena


BUT Alexey & Olena were not eliminated as it was a non-elimination double-length leg. Teams were immediately given their next clue: build a tent and spend a night there.

They totally copied the assembling of the tents, the task in the cave, 1st Roadblock and 2nd Roadblock (but it was presented as a Route Info) from TARP, Leg 11 in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

So, they basically copied all the tasks that happened in this Leg.

Copying is nothing new in International versions. Many of them are made by the same production team.

But the creators of this leg broke the golden rule (Or at least it should be a golden rule): Never have a luck-based task right before an elimination Pit Stop.
