With just five teams left in 'The Amazing Race Australia', we take a closer look at how they've performed so far, and who's on track to take out the top prize of $250,000.

After racing through South Korea, Vietnam, Mongolia, Zimbabwe and Zambia, the teams have gone through some difficult detours, roadblocks and faced some dreaded speed bumps.

With just five teams remaining -- Viv and Joey, Tim and Rod, Tom and Tyler, Jasmin and Jerome and Femi and Nick -- the race is getting hotter and having to say goodbye to teams is getting a lot harder as we get to know them more.

In no particular order, we thought we'd break down some wins, fails and notable moments for each of our final five teams.

Jasmin & Jerome
Kindness, respect, integrity, throwing shade at influencers.

Weaknesses: Fermented horse milk.

Wins: One.

Closest call to elimination: Fifth place in Leg 7.

We aren't supposed to play favourites but Jasmin and Jerome are definitely favourites. The pair have played a smart game, using alliances but making sure to rely on no one but themselves.

They've also proven themselves to be incredible role models -- not just for their son but for the entire country -- treating everyone they meet along the way with the utmost respect.

Despite beating Tom and Tyler for the first place spot in Leg 5, the Deadly Duo cut it close later in the race when they barely nudged in front of Sid and Ash in Leg 7. Thankfully that's the closest the pair have come to the chopping block and frankly, if they could keep it that way, that would be great.

Tom & Tyler
Dumb luck.

Weaknesses: Setting alarms, helping the competition.

Wins: Six.

Closest call to elimination: Fourth place in Leg 6.

Tom and Tyler have had the most incredible run in the race, as the first team to check into the pit stop a massive six out of eight times. The closest they've come to the back of the pack was an unlucky day in Mongolia that saw them fall to fourth out of seven, but the very next day they slid right back into first.

It feels like the footy mates are unstoppable at this stage, with luck on their side they've been able to glide through a lot of the challenges. They're fit, they're agile ... as long as they remember to set their alarms and stop giving other teams help they could continue this winning streak all the way to the end.

Viv and Joey
Teamwork, sassing each other.

Weaknesses: Buckets.

Wins: None just yet, but the mighty duo have placed second in three legs.

Closest call to elimination: Fifth place in Leg 8.

If your heart didn't break watching Viv and Joey struggle to deliver buckets full of water to a chief at the end of Leg 8, you may be a robot (or an Influencer). Never giving up, Joey also never cracked it at his sister when she was struggling.

The pair have been strategic, smart and always looked out for each other throughout the race.

While they haven't been the first team to land on the pit stop mat in any of the legs so far, they've come pretty close, so don't rule out these underdogs.

Femi and Nick
Getting lost.

Weaknesses: Reading a compass, following directions, knowing what "North" is.

Wins: None so far.

Closest call to elimination: Honestly, too many to count.

Femi and Nick said it best when they asked: "How are we even still in the race?" The lovable nurses are ... let's just be honest, they're terrible at following directions, but oh my god do we love them.

Watching the pair skate their way through challenges only to be undone by driving in the wrong direction, riding a camel in the wrong direction or just walking in the wrong direction -- Femi and Nick have had quite a few close calls coming second-last three times during the race.

After the nightmare detour in Mongolia where teams had to dig for their next clue -- Femi and Nick really rallied to get back with the pack and actually managed to arrive fifth, but their time penalty meant they were pushed back to sixth when Viv and Joey slid in before the two hours were up. Since then, though, the boys have done their very best not to miss TOO many turn-offs or drive in the wrong direction.

Let's just hope the only direction they're heading from here on out is to the win.

Tim & Rod
Strengths: Busting a move.

Weaknesses: World trivia.

Wins: None so far, but they've checked in second three times.

Closest call to elimination: Not even one!

Newlyweds Tim and Rod have proven that they're our favourite quote-machines in the race. From being the number one fans of the "Zimbabwe bobsledding team" to trying to milk a male goat, the boys' time in the race has been hysterically funny to watch.

The fellas have also proven that they're definitely threats in the race, in peak physical condition the fearsome twosome have barely slipped to the back of the pack all race. The closest call the boys have had was during Leg 5 when they were the fifth team out of eight to check-in, so they don't need to sweat just yet.

Here's hoping there are a few more dancing challenges ahead to make sure the boys are safe for another day.

Racing report
Amazing Race AU Season 4, Episode 6

The last pit stop was among the sand dunes of the Mongol Els. It is unclear where teams are released but it seems to be in the same area. The are released in the following order:
 1. Jasmin & Jerome
 2. Tom & Tyler
 3. Femi & Nick
 4. Hayley & Mikayla
 5. Tim & Rod
 6. Sid & Ash
 7. Viv & Joey

Route info: Make your way back to Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. But first dig up your next clue in the dunes to find one last task before leaving. You have 173,000 Tugrik for this leg of the race.

Teams must first make their way to the Khongoryn els sand dunes which lies at the south edge of the Gobi desert. Each team seem to have a car with a driver who knows where to go.

Once teams arrive they have to climb to the top of the marked dune and dig in the sand for a box containing their next clue. Since conditions here are extreme there is a 4 hour time limit. Teams who have not found a clue after four hours are given their next clue plus a two hour penalty which will need to be served at the pit stop.

It seems team got released really close to each other because they are all racing up the sand dune together. At the top teams start digging in the sand, with their bare hands of course.
 "Not much tactic right now", Viv

Teams find clues in the following order:
 1(+5) Sid & Ash, after about 10 minutes
 2(+3) Tim & Rod
 3(-2) Jasmin & Jerome
 4(+3) Viv & Joey, probably after about one hour
 5(-3) Tom & Tyler, after 2h50

The last two teams, Femi & Nick and Hayley & Mikayla, did not find their clues within the four hour limit so they are given their next clue and will have a penalty waiting for them at the pit stop.


Who wants to wrestle
with this Road Block?

In this road block contestants must learn the chant traditionally used to start a Mongolian wrestling bout.

Sid feels confident since he considers himself good at singing. The judge does not agree and he fails his first two attempts.

Teams complete this road block in the following order (* denotes team member doing the roadblock):
1(+0)Sid* & Ash       (2-1)On his 3rd attempt
2(+1)Jasmin & Jerome* (1-2)On his 1st attempt
3(+1)Viv & Joey*      (1-2)On his 1st attempt
4(-2)Tim* & Rod       (2-1)On his 2nd attempt
5(+0)Tom* & Tyler     (2-1)On his 1st attempt
6(+0)Femi & Nick*     (1-2)On his 1st attempt
7(-1)Hayley* & Mikayla(012)On her 1st attempt

"Dance" or "Deliver"

Dance: Join a dance
troupe and perform Durvun
Oird, a traditional
Mongolian folk dance, to
receive your next clue.

Deliver: Navigate
Naramtuul, a 40,000 square
metre open market, as you
deliver goods to the correct
stalls. Then assemble the
last item you deliver to
receive your next clue.

The dance is fast and intricate, and production has arranged for an audience to up the pressure a bit.

In deliver the items to deliver are 20 pairs of boots, some furniture and finally an oven. The assembling of the oven is never mentioned in the episode and seems simple. The boots have to be delivered by hand but there seems to be a cart for the furniture and the oven.

 "The market was absolute madness", Jerome
 "The routine was much tougher than I thought", Ash about the dancing

At the dance Tim feels he is making good progress when he notice that Rod has the deer in headlights look on his face. So Tim stops his learning and focuses on helping Rod for a while, this helps and Rod soon get the dance. This was very good teamwork.

Viv & Joey decide to switch detour as the dance is too hard for them. They soon realize that it is hard to find a taxi so they end up making their way, 2km, to the market on foot.

 "Nick & Femi are really good at getting lost", Mikayla has some hope

On their way to the detour Femi & Nick are helped by their driver who takes an off road shortcut to cut the traffic and thanks to that they arrive to the detour at least one hour before the girls. They actually get there just before Tom & Tyler.

Teams complete the detour in the following order:
 1(+3) Tim & Rod, dance on their 1st attempt
 2(+0) Jasmin & Jerome, market
 3(-2) Sid & Ash, dance on their 6th attempt
 4(+2) Femi & Nick, dance on their 1st attempt
 5(+0) Tom & Tyler, dance on their 1st attempt
 6(-3) Viv & Joey, started dance but switched to market
 7(+0) Hayley & Mikayla, dance on their 1st attempt

Make your way to
Chingissin Huree camp,
home to the world's
largest ger, and search
the grounds for Beau at
your next Put Stop!

Hutty! The last team to
check in may be

The cars with drivers which teams had initially left them at the detour so they have to find taxis. And to make matters worse Putin is in town so traffic is at a standstill.

As Viv & Joey look for a cab a kid comes up and asks where they are from. Joey realizes this kid speaks English so they ask him for directions. He helps them get a taxi and tells the driver where to go.

Teams reach Beau at the pit stop in the following order:
 1(+2) Sid & Ash, win $1,000 each
 2(-1) Tim & Rod
 3(-1) Jasmin & Jerome
 4(+1) Tom & Tyler
 ----- Femi & Nick, get a 2h penalty for not finding the clue on the sand dune
 5(+1) Viv & Joey
 6(-2) Femi & Nick, have served their penalty
 7(+0) Hayley & Mikayla, are eliminated

It is unclear what caused Hayley & Mikayla to fall so far behind. They did not seem to struggle on any of the tasks after the digging so we have to assume it was traffic.

 "Hayley and I have definitely grown closer", Mikayla
