We get a recap of last leg and then intro.

10:05 - Beijing. Next clue: Take high speed train to Shanghai to China.  Teams will search for next clue at train station. Sinorama gives them good luck token for the next leg via Jon. Its been 30 hours straight of racing.

4500 Yuan for this leg of the race. Z/S AA depart. K/R is next. All the teams are sleepy. KB are fifth.

S/P arrive at the train station for their clue. Teams are departing at 7am for Shanghai , Sam and Paul drop their tickets!!!

Ivana's back is killing her and she is nervous if it will affect her.

Sam and Paul are now looking for their tickets and can't find them. They are searching with flashlights.

A/E now depart.

SP are looking for their tickets and Sam found them...

SP lost their clue too as well. They couldn;t find it.

All teams are now their way to Tock's Deli in Shanghai. Teams will need to recite the Mandarin phrase they learned at the Great Wall last leg.

SP tell AA they lost their clue. AA wrote the clue for them and SP promised to help them this leg.

KB first out of airport. They arrive at the deli.

Clue: Fly to Bangkok, Thailand.

All teams are flying to Bangkok, they will need to go to Caturday Cafe. They didn't even show all the teams looking for the deli. Completely rushed.

I feel conflicted on the short trip to Shanghai and all the equalizers, but at the same time, I think they want to tire out the racers. They have raced for 4 days straight without Pit Stop rest.

We are back.

Footrace to pitstop. AE beat out SP to the pitstop. They are teams 2-3

Kenneth gets the flag followed by Ryan. They are in fourth.

KB still doing the shopping for the detour.

ZS arrive. Zed gets it immediately at the surfing. KI going to the market. Shabbir struggling at the surfing though.

Race play: Where would you rather explore. Canada at 11% The world at 89% lol... time for producers to go worldwide.

KR are in fourth. Jon calls the last two episodes as one leg.

KI in the market looking for lights.

KB finish the shopping and finish decorating and are wrong. This is by far the difficult detour. So many intricate details to get down.

welp, there's my favourite team gone. I was really hoping that they would be a dark horse in the race. Alas, the tasks dictated otherwise.

Still got a respectable average of 4.2 over 5 legs.

Will miss them :(

Shabbir was awesome! The embodiment of living life to the fullest.

It's obvious they were cast along similar lines as Dave & Connor, but no comparison IMO

I think they had the strategy of Shabbir doing as many roadblocks at the start so that Zed could do the ones later when it matters most, with Zed being the stronger racer.

1. Teams got to experience a Speed Train
2. The promotion of "3 Asian Citites"
3. And it was to visit the Montreal Deli!!!!
4. Who knows, they may have had cheaper flights to Bangkok
5. Prob something to do with Sinorama too!

Apparently Shanghai was a last minute change. The plan was to fly direct to Bangkok, but smog forced the cancellation of the flights from Beijing that day. So they hastily arranged that detour to Shanghai via train rather than wait for the smog to clear.  Getting planning permission to film in the streets of Shanghai is complex and has to be planned in advance, that's why it was mostly them indoors in the deli there (spliced with stock footage of the Shanghai skyline).So...weather.

Does that mean that they cut a roadblock from Bangkok, because it would be weird to only have the puppet task and the detour (with fast forward) in the episode.

Fascinating, I'd blame it more on the terrible Beijing pollution rather than weather, then. As clearly they were also promoting tourism to the area, editing helped to avoid showing any of that. It must have been very last minute, and they had to rely Sinorama on additional support, for added spotlight. If it was planned they could've just done a moving mat like was done on TAR18 after the end of Leg 2 in Australia.

I honestly didn't mind it. Starting the leg traveling to one destination then flying to another. This is old school TAR-style leg design. US doesn't do it anymore, like that superleg in TAR10 that flew to Helsinki, Finland and ended in Ukraine
