Keep it nice...and remember no spoilers, no outcomes !

Everyone have fun!! But keep it nice!! 

Quote

While it is perfectly fine to explain why you think a racer or a team did not
do well in a task, or behaved badly, or just isn't your favorite, it is
NOT okay to be rude or impolite
in doing so. We don't allow personal
attacks on each other or on our racer friends. Comments on how they raced are
fair, personal attacks are not.

And we are on the air!

Previously on TAR, our most competitive season began with a photo finish! for the first time ever, teams went head to head! And swapped partners! They made strategic moves and game changing mistakes. Along the way 7 teams were eliminated leaving Team Indy, Skiers, BB, and Yale with a shot at winning $1 million. Tonight, one of these four teams will win TAR!

Alex & Conor are first to depart at 6:45 AM. Teams must fly to Pearl of the Orient, Hong Kong. Once there, teams must go to the picturesque view atop Victoria Peak to take a picture and retrieve their next clue.

All teams catch up at the airport with Henry & Evan describing their all-or-nothing stance with their Speed Bump.

Flight takes off! Intro

We come back from our introductory commercials to teams arriving head first in Hong Kong! Everyone running through the airport like manics and snagging taxis. Lion's Pavilion!  Alex & Conor and Kristi & Jen are in the lead while Cody & Jessica while Henry & Evan are right behind. "In the future, we gotta be more aggressive. We got to push *shoving motion*" - Evan

Kristi & Jen finish each other's sentences and Mandarin-speaking Henry meets Henry the Mandarin-speaking taxi driver. LOL Alex & Conor arrive at the point while Kristi & Jen are arguing and the taxi driver crashes his vehicle against a retaining wall

Alex & Conor get to the photo kiosk, bypassing Henry & Evan's Speed Bump sign. They are welcomed to HK with a Kowloon? background.

Henry & Evan arrive at the Speed Bump near the kiosk where they must illuminate 48 Chinese lanterns for good luck to progress to their task.

Alex & Conor must travel to the Aberdeen? waterfront to retrieve their next clue. Cody & Jessica move up to 2nd with a kiss at the peak.

Kristi & Jen take their pic at the peak and move up to 3rd. Meanwhile, Henry & Evan are still hanging lanterns with a smile. Everyone else is moving on to the waterfront. Cody & Jessica are following Indy hoping they can overtake them.

Alex & Conor and Cody & Jess split to find the clue box at the promenade while Kristi & Jen trail along.

Kristi & Jen find the DETOUR CLUE: Hairy Crab or Grub Grab
In Hairy Crab, teams must wrap 50 live crabs by twine in a fake typhoon to receive their next clue. In Grub Grab, teams must take orders in Mandarin Chinese at a restaurant to receive their next clue. Kisha & Jen would LOVE this choice, lol.

All teams except Yale get their clues. Henry & Evan take their pic and head to the waterfront. Cody & Jessica and Al ex & Conor are doing crabs. Ouches and yows heard around the world!

Kristi & Jen choose hairy crabs and are starting to hurry up the pace. Cody & Jessica arrive right after them while Alex & Conor are making some progress. Conor is complaining and whining about those pinchers. "This is pointless! I don't want to break my finger!" They quit and switch to Kisha & Jen's fave Detour task.

Commercials.

We come back to Alex & Conor switching to the restaurant. Conor is frustrated.
Henry & Evan get to the promenade, almost passing by it. They choose Grub Grab.

Cody & Jessica are calmly tying those crabs while Kristi & Jen underestimated this task. Meanwhile, Henry & Evan and Alex & Conor and neck and neck arriving at Kimbao? Restaurant. They start taking orders and Conor is already ranting to both team members. Really, bro?
Henry & Evan are working practically and phonetically, bypassing Conor's negativity.

Kristi & Jen and Cody & Jessica are continuing the crab task and Jessica is FRUSTRATED! She thinks the restaurant is a better choice.

Meanwhile, Conor is already confused. Henry already serving plates with a perfect strategy by re-asking and getting orders correct but fails because he initially served the right dishes. :lol: Conor is beating him.

Jessica can't tie the remaining crabs and Alex & Conor are starting to progress even more. Conor wants a check, but still incorrect. Henry checks and gets all 8 dishes correct, moving up to 1st!

Route info: Make your way to Central Pier to get your next clue!

Conor finishes right after in 2nd place. Kristi & Jen finish up the crabs, but incorrectly. They must redo half a basket full of moving crabbies. Cody & Jessica move up to 3rd place.

Henry & Evan arrive at the pier in 1st.
ROADBLOCK: Who want to get smashed?
One team member must smash old and broken electronics to find two halves of a clue. After finding both halves, they must splash red paint over their destruction to create "rage art" before going back to their partner and releasing them from a handcuffed briefcase punishment. Another punishment... hmmm...

Alex & Conor follow Henry right after.

ANd Conor breaks his bat in half mid-break. Henry finds his first half while he brushes by the second half and eventually finds it.

Travel by taxi to Lan Kwai Fong to find specific icons in the neons of previously seen figures on the race to unlock their briefcase.

Cody & Jessica meet up at the pier and start smashing. Kristi & Jen arrive right after with Kristi in SO MUCH PAIN not being able to brea any of the desolated gadgets. She is in physical pain and holding her wrists as if they were bleeding.
