And here we go again!

Previously on The Amazing Race Latin America...

Five teams traveled to the stunning Galapagos Islands to face demanding challenges. They submerged intro the depths. Showed they knowledge about a trascendental personage. And contributed to reforest an endemic species.

Argentineans Javi & Nico confirmed to be a team to be afraid of. Colombians Martín & Jenny raced a leg full of adversities but their faith moved mountains.

Today the race arrives to the most important resort of Ecuador. Teams should be coordinated, narrow their aim, and stay up on this leg of The Amazing Race.

Intro.

Unspoiled paradaise of crystal clear waters, the El Garrapatero Beach is one of the favourite destinies on the Galapagos Islands. From this place will the 5 remaining teams pursuing the goal of winning the prize of 100 thousand dollars.

Javi & Nico depart in first place.
RI: make your way to the Seymour Airport and flight to Guayaquil. Once there go to the local bus terminal and board a bus to the city of Salinas, located in the Santa Elena province. After arrival, travel on foot to the San Lorenzo beach and search for a marked stall and the next clue. You've got 50usd for this leg of the race.

All teams going together to the airport.

At Guayaquil, Javi & Nico are the first to get a cab to the bus terminal. Dina & Christian in second taxi, and the bros-in-law in the third.

Argentinean friends say the enjoyed the Galapagos leg, althought they would have liked being there a little longer.

Christian know where are the ticket offices at the bus terminal and tells Dina to follow his lead; but helping him to see the departing times.

Juan & Ceci get the fourth cab.

In the bus terminal, Christian & Dina take the lead, purchasing first the bus tickets. Javi & Nico are with them and secure places in the same bus.

JC & Gio arrive to the terminal, but they're provided with tickets for a different bus; and when they reach the platform the first one is gone with only Ecuadorean couple and Argentinean friends on it. Once they boarded their bus and leave the terminal, they say that there's only a 10 minutes difference between them so they can catch up the leading teams.

On the taxi, father and daughter talk about how the race is becoming more intense, and how are narrowing the margins. They also talk about the Colombians not being eliminated on the last leg.

In last place, Colombian couple pick a cab at the airport and is on their way to the bus terminal.

Juan & Ceci reach the terminal and book their tickets on a direct bus. Jenny & Martin arrive minutes later, getting the tickets. They try to beg people on father and daughter bus to give up their seats so they can travel with them, but unsuccessfully. They have to wait for the next one that depart five minutes later.

On the road, second bus (JC & Gio) surpass the first one. Bros-in-law make jokes about Christian face when this happened.

Jaime introduces Salinas: named as Salinas due to be an endless source to salt; this resort in the most important and visited of Ecuador. Today this city will be a witness of the tenth leg of The amazing race.

JC & Gio arrive to the Santa Elena Terminal first, and make a transfer to a local bus to reach Salinas. Minutes later, the teams of the second bus do the same on another bus. Juan & Ceci reach the terminal, but when they try to stop this local bus, teams on it tell the driver not to wait for them and keep going. Eventually they find another one.

Bros-in-law finally arrive to Salinas at dusk and start making their way on foot to the beach. Almost at the same time, Colombian couple find the local buses at Santa Elena.

Christian & Dina and Nico & Javi are also at Salinas, and run together looking to the street vendor. The same that JC & Gio locate, only to face an HoO: 11.00am-5.00pm.

Christian & Dina are having an argument about the place they should have dropped from the bus, at the beginning of the jetty or in the middle. And it's a bad one... She shows him Javi & Nico stretching and tells him "There is strength in numbers, that's why we never win, because of you". He replyes saying it's because of her; because we always do what you want to do, not what I want to do, you think of yourself as a diva.

Juan & Ceci locate the stall to discover the HoO. So does Jenny & Martin. She jumps of happiness.

JC & Gio go to a emergency room to see Gio's injuries in both legs from the misstep at the dash to the Galapagos PS. A doctor is treating him. After some cleaning and applying medicine and put bandages, they leave the place and are ready for the next day.

Next day. Jenny & Martin find at the stall their SB.
SB: they have to board a rubber boar called "La Bestia" and stay on it while being pulled from a speed boat until a judge gives his approval.

Nico & Javier first picking the clue. It's a Detour.
DETOUR: A lot of strengh and endurance will be required when they have to choose between Park or Row.
Park requires from teams to swim until the marked place and transport 3 paddleboats to the parking lot designated on the beach.
Row requires from team to pick a double kayak and row on zig-zag until the third CLARO buoy and come back.
They pick Row. Both Ecuador teams choose the same option. Father and daughter opt by Park.

On the SB, Jenny & Martin board the "Beast" and start the task.

Juan & Ceci are surprised nobody else picked that side of the Detour. Juan says that as the two previous times they have to row they suck, they decided to try the other option.

Argentinean friends first at the kayak. They explain that they did pretty well before with them, so it was the right choice. On the water, they have to make zig-zar along three lines of small buoys, that in the end has a Claro big one.
Bros-in-law are the second to start the task, and Christian & Dina do it in third.
JC & Gio realize that the zig-zag must start from the first s small double boys and not after the Claro first one. That's apparently what the other two teams are doing.

At the SB, Colombian couple admitts they were enjoying the task. That it was relaxing. So they can continue with the race. And they pick to do Park.
In that option, Juan & Ceci start to transport the first paddleboat.

In Row, Nico & Javi are almost at the end of the second line. Meanwhile, Christian & Dina surpass without effort to the bros-in-law - because the allow this to happen due to their mistake at the first line -. JC & Gio only keep rowing to stay close to them.

In Park, Jenny & Martin jump into the water. She says that they don't even think of trying the kayak. That they're used to do swimming. But they also see that father and daughter are coming back to the beach with the first paddleboat. While they're moving it to the parking area, Colombians start the transport.

At Row, Nico & Javi row beyond the third Claro bouy, and do 50 extra meters so they have to go back.
Christian & Dina are the first to end the task, but the judge tell them that they didn't complete it correctly and must start from the first line. That allows Argentinean friends to be the firsts to finish the Detour.
RI: Boar a traditional "carricoche" and pedal until the jetty of the Chipipe Beach. There they'll find a Samsung Galaxy S5 with the next clue.
WARNING: U-TURN AHEAD.

While going to the beach, bros-in-law crosses paths with the other Ecuadorean team as they expected. That put thems in second place.

At Park, father and daughter have a problem with the paddleboat and must travel on reverse. Meanwhile, Colombians park their first boat and return to pick their second swimming.

On the U-Turn, Javi & Nico decide not to use the U-Turn. So they pick a carricoche and start making their way to the next destination.
JC & Gio also not U-Turn anybody; and they board another carricoche.
And the task looks like a little hard but extremely funny.

In Row, Christian & Dina complete the Detour and receive their following clue.

At Park, Juan & Ceci finally manage to reach the beach, however their boat get stuck in the sand. At the same time, Jenny & Martin park their second boat and go for the last one. Father & daughter try to move the boat, but it's barelly centimeters/inches. She asks the judge to give it as good, but the answer is no.

Another U-Turn?  :gaah:

I feel like if Martin & Jenny were to overtake Ceci & Juan and U-Turn them, the program will make a huge deal out of it (Stefa & Felipe clips included)....

With the boat still get stuck, Juan decides to use the wave to help them move, and they do move the boat! Then they can go get the last one. But Jenny & Martin are already transporting their last one and are almost at the beach. Colombians end the detour in 4th.

Sneaky Christian... He was about to use again the U-Turn; but Dina tells him they can't. They board a carricoche and go to the other beach.

Javi & Nico ask for direction, and they cheer themselves yelling "Let's go the Flinstones!" :lol:
Almost arriving, JC & Gio catch them. In the beach, they go to the left and Nico & Javi (strangely arguing) to the right. Bros-in-law pick the right direction. While the friends located a race flag, but it wasn't the designated location so they have to make their way back.

JC & Gio find the smartphones.
(Oh, boy, Claire's nightmare :funny: )
RI: Throw watermelons with a catapult until shoot down 2 buckets towers. Racers should take turns doing this task. 

Friends arrive to the correct location. Both teams proceed to the task area and start thowing watermelons.

On Park, father & daughter complete the task in last place.

After not using the U-T, Jenny & Martin board a carricoche, but she lost a slipper and have to stop. Of course they bicker about this.

Nico throws a melon and hits the top line of one of the towers. And a second one shoot down the remaining lines.
On the other hand, bros-in-law make a big hit and their tower is gone.

Christian & Dina arrive to the ARM.

Argentinean friends shoot down the top line of the second tower.
And Ecuadorean friends can't do a properly shot.

Juan & Ceci pick the last carricoche at the U-Turn board. Meanwhile, Colombians reach the ARM.

Next two shots from bros-in-law only hits one bucket each. And Nico & Javi complete the task on their next attempt. A couple minutes later the Ecuadoreans get it too.

RB: Who loves to stay up?
In this RB, team members must use their skills to stay up during 1 minutes on a wakeboard board. Once achieved this goal, they will receive a Claro tablet with their next clue.
Javier does the RB, Gio too.

Father and daugther reach the ARM.
Martin suddenly finds the technique to shoot down the buckets and they're done with the first tower. It's funny because they thought the task is complete and have to go back to the catapult.

At the RB, first attempts of both Javi and Gio are not good.

In the ARM, is a neck to neck fight between the 3 remaining teams; but Juan & Ceci are the first of this group to finish the challenge. Ceci will perform the RB.
Right after them, Colombians end the task, and Jenny is going to do the RB.

On the RB, Gio notice that he tried to stand up too quickly and have to wait until the boat gained speed and it's the boat who make him stay up. He uses this knowledge on his second attempt.
Javi tries again, but he can't stay up and fall to the water again.
Gio is done! While Javi third attempt is not good.

Nico is talking with the judge about Javi knows how to do it, but can't keep on the board the 1 minute.

Bros-in-law receive the tablet:
RI: Make your way to the La Chocolatera Reservation and travel on foot to the Mirador El Faro, the PS of this leg of the race. The last team of check in there, may be eliminated.

At the ARM, Ecuadorian friends finally shoot down the first tower, and with a little effort do the same with the other. Christian is going to do the RB.

All three teams run to the boats to start the RB.

Everybody is having difficulties. But Ceci manages to not falling. And their finish in 2nd position!

JC & Gio reach the PS. They're team number one! They won a Samsung Galaxy S5 each.

At the RB, Javi finally completes the task in 3rd place.

Juan & Ceci check in 2nd place.

In the RB, Martin can't find the way to stay up.

And Martin is once again on the water. The same happens to Christian. It's a battle between them for not being the last one. But it's the Ecuadorian who gets it first.
In last place, Martin completes the 1 minute.
Both teams receive their clue.

On the PS, Nico & Javi steps into the mat in 3rd position.

Christian & Dina check in 4th place.

Jenny & Martin arrive in last position. Even though they managed to make a sort of comeback, the RB killed them, they lost a lot of time doing it.
They're eliminated from the race.
Martin says that they did this for their daughter, to see their parents. To watch them giving the example. Their balance is good.

Well, with Martin & Jenny out, that means that at least one Ecuadorian team will make it to the final 3. That also means that no team will pull an Aleandra & Marlene (i.e. getting to the final leg without having won at least one leg). Btw I'm starting to seriously wonder if there's going to be some kind of U-Turn on the next leg (blind double U-Turn maybe?)...

I find it hard predicting which teams will make it past Episode 11, because the race has been very twisty lately, enough to send Juan & Ceci to 2nd after being neck to neck with no other than Stefa & Felipe two legs ago struggling to not be eliminated, Christian & Dina to 4th and currently last place after having a very good performance on the previous legs, the kind-of-injured-but-comandoing-all-the-way Giovanni & Juan Carlos team to 1st, and the Argentinian partners down to 3rd after having good performances too. I feel like all 4 deserve to be finalists, but only 3 may become one, and who knows? Maybe the next leg will be as exciting and unpredictable as some of the previous legs...

I really want to see that :tantrum
