Her we go! 8:52 start.

Previously on TARAus vs NZ, teams were out of tune and out of luck.

A numbers game strengthened nation alliances, but tore Ashleigh & Jarrod apart.

Sally & Tyson led the Aussie boys astray, and teams struggled with some fishy delights.

Newlyweds Ashleigh & Jarrod were last but got a second life.


3 Aus & 2 NZ remain - who will be eliminated next?

Carla & Hereni  7:58am, Cat & Jesse at 8:04 and Sally & Tyson at 8:19.

Carla & Hereni are determined to win.

Sally & Tyson talk about the money setting up their future and want to somehow prove that they can come first.

It is Cat's birthday! :conf:

Jesse: Thought I'd take you to Croatia for your birthday.

Cat & Jesse are talking about the kids.

Ashleigh & Jarrod start at 8:47am!

Jarrod: At the moment the race is too friendly.

They're worried about language barrier there.

Everyone's on the same flight and everyone looks disappointed Ash & Jarrod survived.

Teams are flying via Frankfurt and arrive at 10:05pm!

After stopping at a bus stop, Cat & jesse's driver is escorting them to the place and seems to be more in this race than anybody else. :lol:

Cat & Jesse and Ashleigh & Jarrod pick up the first two clues.

Take part in an ancient tradition and proceed to Watchman's Keep by collecting two large stones to take there. Teams must correctly answer his question to receive the next clue.

Daniel & Ryan and Sally & Tyson are 3rd and 4th at the task, with Carla & Hereni bringing up the rear.

Carla: We had no idea what the judge was going to ask. I thought he would ask for the correct spelling of Dubrovnik which is pretty hard since I can't say it.

:lol:

Daniel & Ryan and Sally & Tyson are working together to navigate once again.

The five teams are basically running in caravan up the stairs towards the tower.

Sally's carrying "two rocks" - the rock + her engagement ring. :hearts:

Cat & Jesse are dropping into the back of the pack struggling to carry the stone.

Sally & Tyson are first up there.

"How many steps did you climb to get here?"

Sally: Counting steps is not something you're doing at that moment.

We are back!

How many steps did you climb to get here and reach me?

They guess 160. Wrong.

They must go back and count with rocks in tow!

Ashleigh & Jarrod are running up and think that they need to count stairs during the climb.

Carla & Hereni guess incorrectly.

Daniel & Ryan are also thinking to count the stairs on the way up.

Ashleigh & Jarrod get up and guess 139 - they are CORRECT!

Ashleigh & Jarrod leave in the lead!

Travel on foot to the Old Harbour where they will sign up for one of three start times 15 mins apart!

Daniel & Ryan have 139 as well and they're off in 2nd place.

Daniel & Ryan know a faster route to the harbour to beat Ashleigh & Jarrod.

Sally & Tyson can't believe other teams got the answer the first time up.

Cat & Jesse are finally up to the top.

How many steps did you climb?

Cat: A billion. :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny:

No, that is not correct.

Daniel & Ryan claim the first departure. Ashleigh & Jarrod claim the second time.

Sally & Tyson get their clue as do Carla & Hereni and finally Cat & Jesse.

All teams head off.

Sally & Tyson will depart at the same time as the other Aus teams.

Carla & Hereni start at 8:45, 15 mins later. Cat & Jesse start at 9am.

It's 8:30am and the three Aussie teams find a FAST FORwARD!

There is only 1 Fast Forward the entire race.

Go to Dominican Monastery to attempt the FF.

Daniel & Ryan are taking the Fast Forward, as will Sally & Tyson.

Ashleigh & Jarrod will forego the Fast Forward.

Route Info: Make your way to Big Onofrio Fountain to find your next clue! NOTE: Speed Bump ahead!

The Fast Forward teams are searching for the location. The boys run off looking like they know where they're going, throwing Sally & Tyson off who decide to go to the Route Info.

SPEED BUMp: Croatia is the home of the neck tie. They must each do a particular tie on each other to complete the Speed Bump.

Jarrod: I never knew how to do these.

Sally & Tyson get to a Roadblock clue after the Speed Bump.

Who's always looking ahead?

Fort Boca is one of the oldest preserved forts of its kind. In this Roadblock, one person must abseil down its impenetrable walls.

Sally will perform it!

Daniel & Ryan get to the monastery - collect marked prayer cards from three of the churches in the town and deliver them to the town barber before completing the second part of the task - head shaving in a weird haircut thingy, not completely shaved? :crazy:

Carla & Hereni obviously forego the Fast Forward as they start the time.

Ashhleigh does her tie and now it's Jarro'ds turn and he is struggling with this one.

Jarrod: This is impossible.

Sally is preparing to abseil.

Sally: This is really scary.
Tyson: She looks more nervous than I thought.

She's getting nervous.

Tyson: You can do it.
Sally: Oh baby, I can't.

And we are back!

Sally is staring down the fortress and conjures up the courage to climb down. She has a bumpy ride down and can't find her vertical footing.

Ashleigh & Jarrod are still at the Speed Bump with Jarrod getting the tie done! They are off looking for the Roadblock clue while Daniel & Ryan struggle with their blind cathedral search.

Sally is nearing the bottom.

AShleigh & Jarrod narrowly beat Carla & Hereni to the RB clue. Ashleigh and Carla will perform this.

At 9am, Cat & Jesse can begin the leg.

Sally gets down the abseil and receives her clue!

Travel by foot along the City Walls to the Old Harbour and find Fort Saint John!

Sally & Tyson run off just as Ashleigh & Jarrod get to he task.

Daniel & Ryan are somewhat lost but they get to a cathedral and find their first prayer card... and their second one!

Ashleigh commences the abseil. Hereni is relieved she doesn't have to do this, having a fear of heights. Carla begins the task as well.

Ashleigh is leading Carla on the way down the tower.

Meanwhile Cat & Jesse rip open the Roadblock clue. Cat will be performing.

Cat: Those red envelopes, they scare me... only because I knew it was my turn.

Cat seems excited. :lol:

Sally & Tyson are trying to navigate the old city and are lost.

Daniel & Ryan arrive at the barber shop with 2 prayer cards having to pass by there and notice it is a barber (they weren't informed of this before).

Meanwhile Ashleigh descends and they run off behind Sally & Tyson. Carla completes the task too and they head off.

Daniel & Ryan find their third prayer card and will need to 'show their devotion in a traditional way'.

Daniel: I'd rather get tortured.

They're contemplating whether or not to do this. Daniel has been growing his hair for 6 years.

The hairstyle they will get is a bizarre one too - it's like a circular ring around the head... :crazy:
