I'm here and ready for nothing to Bahrain on this parade. I'm not gonna get Thai-ed down. :neener:
Time for a hopefully wonderful penultimate episode! I can't believe we're only getting 10 episodes aired live... this is quite possibly the shortest airing season anyone has ever witnessed.

EDIT: Just a reminder, the episode airs live in an hour, not ten minutes.

 :2hearts: Also, Happy Valentine's Day! :2hearts:

And we are on the air, everybody!

Previously on TAR, six teams raced around Zimbabwe where they were hit with a game changing twist: swapping partners! Six new teams raced through the bush. "We are so close!" Cody & Jen cruised through while Kristi & Jessica hit a snag. Teams reunited as they raced into Harare where Lifeguards and Indy used the U-Turn forcing Cody & Jessica and Henry & Evan to duke it out to avoid elimination. But the final task had teams singing a different tune... *gibberish montage*. And the 8th leg was the twins' swan song. 5 teams remain, who will be eliminated next?!

And we begin with Jessica & Cody revealing they may be racing in flip-flops. I wonder how this will work out. Instead, they go back to Eastgate Mall and buy a pair of Zimbabwean sneakers using the remainder of their leg money.

Intro. Weird.

We come back from commercials with Lucas & Brittany departing 1st at 8:41 to Manama, Bahrain! A modern financial center that still embraces their Islamic design and culture. They must self-drive to the port city of Manama. The two head off in taxis. They are still aware just because they are 1st doesn't mean they will stay in first.

Kristi & Jen head off in 2nd and Alex & Conor go off in 3rd... where we are provided with cringey puns from their Indy car racing lifestyle, and how Alex has traveled to Bahrain before. Henry & Evan and Cody & Jessica leave in 5th and 6th.

Meanwhile, Lucas & Brittany are booking their flights at a travel agency. They want to think positive. They connect through Addis Ababa and Dubai, and immediately we are struck with Lucas & Brittany missing Lucas' passport. Everyone chattering about clearing customs...

Speculation arises from the sitting teams while Lucas & Brittany are freaking out in Addis Ababa with a missing passport. 45 minutes until boarding time. Lucas reveals he is forgetful and feels for Brittany. 21 minutes before boarding. "Sounds like Karma was kicking in earlier than I anticipated." - Jessica... The first rule of Amazing Race club is to always have your travel documents AKA passports with you.

All teams except Lucas & Brittany boarding the flight from Addis Ababa into Dubai. Lucas & Brittany are screwed.

We return with the first four teams arriving in Manama, Bahrain! They get into their marked cars with their clue. Teams must travel to the Dhow Harbour in the Fishermen's Market to receive their next clue. Henry & Evan and Cody & Jessica comment on Lucas' missing passports. Meanwhile, Lucas & Brittany are retrieving a rushed expedited passport in Dubai, one flight stop away from Bahrain.

Alex & Conor arrive at the shipyard. It's time to haul some timber!
Teams must carry heavy pieces of timber across the shipyard to a scale and weigh 300 lbs exactly of wood to the foreman to earn their next clue.
Kristi & Jen come in right after

Kristi & Jen are dragging their timber, which is more efficient, while Indy are carrying each end of the logs. Henry & Evan arrive 3rd at the shipyard. Cody & Jessica, meanwhile, are lost in navigation.

Kristi & Jen keep on dragging their driftwood while Alex & Conor are tired! Henry & Evan making up the time against Indy.

Kristi & Jen try weighing their delivered timber and succeed on the first attempt They move up to first.
Teams must travel to Showaiter Sweets and sample an Arabic confection to receive their next clue.
Meanwhile, Alex & Conor and Henry & Evan get their clues in 2nd and 3rd.

Cody & Jessica arrive at the shipyards and begin the log carrying. Cody effortlessly carries two logs while Jessica is shocked at how heavy a single log is. She reveals Cody is a competition beast and lives for this strength training style of labor. He falls in love more as he pushes her to do more. They finish and get their next clue and leave in 4th.

Jessica is wiping Cody clean from sweat. Meanwhile, Alex & Conor and Kristi & Jen navigating to the shop. They arrive at the same time at the market and are hit with "King of Halwa" as a treat rather than a location after some misunderstanding. They sample it and receive their next clue.

Teams must travel to Dalwa Pottery District to receive their next clue. Meanwhile, Henry & Evan are having a tiff about the drive to Showaiter Sweets. Cody & Jessica bypass them and sample the confection. They move up to 3rd. "That dessert was bomb!"

Alex & Conor are bickering a bit and are stuck in traffic. "I'd rather hang upside-down naked with my arms set on fire." - Alex.

Cody & Jessica bypass Henry & Evan while they asked for directions. Jessica meanwhile discusses their indifferent feelings about Team Yale. Henevan arrive at the sweets shop and receive their clue in 4th place.

Back in Dubai, Lucas & Brittany have their temporary passport and Lucas looks traumatized in his picture. :funny: They hope EVERYONE is lost so they can quickly catch up. Meanwhile, Alex & Conor are indeed lost.

Kristi & Jen and Henry & Evan AND Cody & Jessica are lost in navigation. They comment that it's mind boggling that nobody in Manama knows where the pottery place is. And we are in some sort of dizzying daze as visuals flash racers and road signs TAR29 Leg 1-style.

We come back with Cody & Jessica finding the pottery in first! Wow.
Teams must play a game of memory, finding several specific trinkets inside handcrafted clay pots to receive their next clue.

Jessica meanwhile finds an orange tabby cat and proceeds to pick the feline up. After putting the cat back on the ground, they head off and are immediately shocked at t he amount of pottery.

Kristi & Jen and Henry & Evan arrive 2nd and 3rd at the pottery village. "no match" for Cody & Jessica. Alex & Conor arrive 4th and start on this near impossible live match game. They say the hardest part was paying attention to detail. Everyone can't find a match.

Lucas & Brittany are stuck in Dubai and it is what it is. They head off to Manama! Finally.
And we come back with teams finding matches with five or six or four or three. Everyone is on a hustle cornering off areas to find the pieces easier.

Alex & Conor get their sixth match while Henry & Evan are in a struggle, the race is taking a toll on them. Meanwhile, Kristi & Jen get a ninth match. Cody & Jess get their tenth and their next clue.

Teams must travel to Bahrain Endurance Village for their next clue!

We come back with Henry feeling very hot. Evan says Indy car left right before them and are frustrated, but finally find a match after finding their tenth match. They can't break the clue pot.... :lol3: And finally after chucking it hard, they do.

Cody & Jessica can't find the camel village while Alex & Conor experience Lorena & Jason's nightmare.
SUPPOSED SWITCHBACK: Teams must milk a dromedary camel up to the marked line for their next clue.

Alex & Conor's camel keeps kicking their knee back like a cow and groans. "Can we get malaria from camels?"
They did not expect to be squeezing a camel's nipples for the day. "This makes you want to have cereal!"

Kristi & Jen arrive and Jen is freaking pumped about this task. Alex & Conor get their next clue after the Bedouin drinks the milk.
Teams must travel to the Tree of Life, a surviving tree nearly 2 miles away from any oasis, the Pit Stop of this leg. Last team to check in may be eliminated!

Alex & Conor head off while Jen spends time with the camel. Petting and calmly nurturing the dromedary. Henry & Evan and Cody & Jess are lost.

For what it's worth, the Jumping off the boat roadblock we saw in the live sightings was unaired. It was in fact a task though. Jess confirmed in Jody's TV Party App stream

Kristi & Jen get their clue in 2nd place.... and Alex & Conor arrive at the Pit Stop! They are greeted with a flapping falcon.

They receive $7,500 each for owning 1ST PLACE! They see teams starting to degrade, but their friendship is growing stronger.

Meanwhile, Cody & Jess are lost in spirals and can't find the endurance village. Henry & Evan arrive at the camels in 3rd place and Evan says she talks to animals as she does with Henry. And they mention some pretty private stuff. :barf

Kristi & Jen arrive at the Pit Stop in 2ND PLACE!

Cody & Jessica finally arrive at the camels and sense the scent. Meanwhile, Henry & Evan's camel is DONE and walks away :camel just perfect. And they wrap up with their clue in 3rd. Cody & Jessica begins with the camel. "This sounds like when you burp." "AIIOISIOMAOIMCOISM" - Camel. Jessica says she was excited to see camels for a millisecond until it actually hit her that the dromedaries were stinky and gross.

Cody & Jessica get their clue in 4th and Cody drinks the camel milk. Jessica is impressed, but wants to leave to the Pit Stop. Henry & Evan arrives in 3RD PLACE. They understand how each other thinks as Evan rambles until the falcon excretes. :lol3:

Cody & Jessica finish the leg in 4TH PLACE, validating their love for each other is actually true.
...
Meanwhile, Lucas & Brittany FINALLY arrive in BAHRAIN.... They are happy with the time they had, becoming engaged. They arrive at the shipyard where Phil comes out onto the course. They are the last team to arrive and are eliminated from the race. "We figured."

Lucas feels he left his family and friends down and starts tearing up. Brittany also gets emotional and can't ask for a better partner. She says she is proud of him and ended up with something even better, a proposal for marriage. And one last sneak in for the ring until we are finally done with this leg.

Alex & Conor depart at 10:00 AM in 1st to Chiang Mai, Thailand! Teams must travel via songthaw to Royal Park Ratrapraeu where they must search for an elephant holding their next clue. They've never been to Thailand and want to see their spaceship program.

Kristi & Jen depart in 2nd and get their tickets. Henry & Evan depart in 3rd with more college talk blah blah blah. They are stuck with various options to Chiang Mai though Alex says they shouldn't stress about other flights because there aren't any. Cody & Jessica are in 4th and pair up with Indy and skiiers as a tight-knit bond. Henry & Evan are lone wolves. Everyone is on edge and feels there are definitely no rooms for error.

Teams are shown arriving in Chiang Mai. It's a mad dash across the airport to songthaws! All teams sitting in the backs admiring and curious about the transportation while traveling to the grand park. The teams also explore the surroundings along the way. Kristi & Jen see signs of the park, but don't know how much English their driver speaks.

Alex & Conor and Cody & Jess arrive at the park while Henry & Evan's driver points out their way to the temple. Kristi & Jen are led the wrong way. Meanwhile, Indy gets the clue first followed by Yale and BB.

Teams must present a garland to a lady around the park in trade of their next clue.
