We return to a crying-in-mercy Kristi at the Roadblock. Cody & Jessica are worrying they are competing for last place. Kristi finally gets the hang of it, "this sucks", while Cody finds the first half.

Henry & Evan begin writing down possible icons and as they arrive are struck with a nightlife shock. Alex & Conor then arrive and Cody & Jessica finish up the Roadblock. Meanwhile, Kristi is miserable smashing the desktops.

Alex & Conor feel the neons are their worst nightmares. Henry & Evan are even more confused. Cody & Jessica can't believe they are racing for last against the skiers. Yale finds the Moroccan musicians' caps while Alex & Conor also get the bulls.

Kristi is struggling.

She re-reads her clue and begins actively searching for both halves. They eventually get both and are on their way to Lan Kwai Fong. Alex & Conor are overanalyzing this task with any signs, even storefronts, in particular. They decide to work with Henry & Evan, confusing them even more. This is more pointless than Conor's complaint about the hairy crabs. :lol:

"This is like Mardi Gras!" - Jessica. BB arrives searching for the figures. Henry & Evan realize their lead evaporated. Alex & Conor and Cody & Jessica tiffing with each other about over-analyzing signs.

Henry & Evan find the Washington Square Park monument as Leg 1. They starting picking locks AND UNLOCK IT!

This brightly lit intersection of Johnston & Wan Chai Road is the Pit Stop for this Leg of the race. The last team to arrive WILL be eliminated!

Henry & Evan are hurrying their asses up the hill. Cody & Jessica and Alex & Conor skip over Leg 1 thinking the starting line isn't part of the race. Yale in their taxi to the intersection. Kristi & Jen arrive at the nightlife row and start searching. cody & Jessica can't find 'nother sign to save their lives.

 Kristi & Jen concentrate on themselves because it's an us or them scenario. Alex & Conor are dawdling with numbers. Meanwhile, Cody & Jess realize WSP is the final number.

Cody & Jessica get their clue with a cheering crowd surrounding them like they are putting their hands in the Hollywood Walk of Fame, going off in 2nd place. Meanwhile, Kristi & Jen and Alex & Conor are stuck. "This is terrible." - Conor.

I recall reading something here on RFF that Jody fans in Hong Kong were sent out to help them, and someone even gave one of the other teams wrong directions?

We come back to Kristi & Jen confusing each other with Washington Square Park. Cody & Jess and Henry & Evan on their way to the Pit Stop. And Yale almost gets run over by a ding ding train before arriving at the mat! They make TAR history by being a team to complete the Speed Bump and winning the same leg - with Jet & Cord. Evan says they smoked all these teams. Phil reveals they will be pampered in premier on the plane back to the USA... to San Francisco! No Travelocity-sponsored prize?

Meanwhile, Cody & Jessica arrive in 2nd place and will be one of three teams who will be racing for a million dollars. They get emotional because they are losing friends over Yale winning the leg. They are bittersweet.

Kristi & Jen now cracking under pressure while Indy are lost.

Yes.  An Australian dude gave Kristi & Jen wrong directions on purpose.

Wasn't a Jody fan. Was a random Australian dude messing around.

Kristi & Jen unlock the case by luck and on their way to the taxis. Alex & Conor are confused more than ever now. The skiers race to the mat and arrive in the nick of time.  They hug it out before Phil reveals they are team number 3! He says they are relentless and only 3 FF teams have won the race. Jen feels confident while Alex & Conor meet Phil on the course.

They have been eliminated. Conor feels this is difficult to take and feels disappointed in himself. Phil even reconciles him at this point.

That's awful.

In the next leg, teams must travel to San Francisco's AT&T Park and find the Willie Mays statue (oh, I went there before!) to find their next clue. Team Extreme meet up with Yale and BB in the finals at the airport.

Henry & Evan check in their bags to race without baggage. Meanwhile, every team gets an upgrade to business class on China Airlines, I think. All teams ready to take on the final leg!

We come back to the finale with teams arriving in SFO and pushing in taxis to AT&T Park. Everyone is on edge! It's a night leg y'all!! Cody & Jess arrive at AT&T Park.

Teams must retrieve three numbers to represent the number of home runs Mays hit over his career (660) to receive their next clue. Kristi & Jen decide to ask travelers/locals. Smart. Meanwhile, Cody twists his ankle and now running with a limp. Keep on pushing!!!!!!

All teams now rowing in kayaks to retrieve the splash landings.

Lou Seal, the Giants mascot, is throwing more baseballs into the water. :lol:
Cody & Jess crash into Henry & Evan while Kristi & Jen are making up time.  All teams start grabbing numbers.

Cody & Jess get 6-6-0 and Henry & Evan overhear their conversation with the local. Both teams are searching frantically. Kristi & Jen get their last number and are paddling to the umpire. Cody & Jess find the last ball too.

"You're outta here!" Skiers get their next clue. Henry & Evan are cracking while BB get the clue.

ROADBLOCK: Who brought an extra pair of underwear?
One team member must travel to the concrete base of the Bay Bridge. The team member must ascend 20 storeys worth of structure and take a pitch dark bungee jump into the abyss of the tower before receiving their next clue.

Henry & Evan finally get their 3rd clue and now having a communication breakdown --- on the final leg. They're done. Kristi & Jen love the beauty of the bridge while Cody & Jessica arrive at the bridge in 1st.

Evan is cardiovascularly exhausted and trying to catch up. Kristi and Cody are butt-to-butt at this point. But Cody still reaches the top first right before Kristi. Evan is struggling.

I love the edit for this leg! Feels like TAR12-17 now.

Cody is in some neon jumpsuit getting ready to JUMP!

We return to Cody juming into the dark abyss! He is unaffected. :lol:
They must travel to Golden gate Fortune Cookie Factory in Chinatown! Yum!

Kristi hates tall buildings and is scared to walk down the ledge, yet skis for a living. That makes sense, haha.

Evan is now prepping for the plunge.

At the fortune cookie factory, teams must make 120 perfect fortune cookies to break open a giant cookie to find their next clue.

Evan jumps and screams in fright and delight. They now proceed to the fortune cookie factory.

Cody & Jessica arrive 1st at the cookies and Kristi & Jen follow them in 2nd. Henry & Evan's taxi driver Googles the fortune cookie factory. Both teams redoing cookies individually before Kristi is checked off. Cody has yet to finish.

And Jen completes her set!

Find your next clue at the USS Hornet!
