And so we go!

Previously on TAR, nine teams set off from Luang Prabang, Laos to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam! At the airport, a BB alliance was formed! The Afghanimals felt the pressure "exhaustion has really hit us" while Corinne & Eliza felt the pain. Becca & Floyd rose to the top while Bret crashed at karaoke, but him and Chris survived the leg. Nine teams remain, who'll be eliminated NEXT?

"I was made for this" ~ Elissa

Becca & Floyd depart first to Snowtown Saigon in early morning!

Nic & Vic are 2nd to depart and are satisfied with their progress on the race. They believe they are teetering between actual crossover teams. Colin & Christie are 3rd to depart and think they are the mom and dad duo this season :funny:.

Tyler & Korey are 4th to depart and are ready to cool down. "Elsa demure fabulosity"
Corinne & Eliza are on the average of mediocrity by departing 5th. "It seems idiotic that we can't be better than this at Big Brother" - Corinne, Eliza is actively complaining about not being better than BB teams, proceed to Janelle & Britney and Rachel & Elissa screaming for a taxi in 6th and 7th.

All teams remaining catch up

Chris almost injures himself at the escalator upstairs to Snowtown! Woo! All teams are grabbing a toboggan to sled down a little hill to grab their next clue from a polar bear. Everyone is a fool and one of the Big Brother teams KNOCKS DOWN THE POLAR BEAR :funny:

We return to the show with teams ripping open their next clue. (note for people who aren't able to view: before "all teams remaining catch up", there was an HoO / hours of operation).

ROUTE INFO: MMake your way to College Transportation Center and search for your next clue.

Chris & Bret hit the Speed Bump! They must fill up a cooler with snowballs and deliver them to the same location as the teams.... :groan: to continue racing. Geez, stop with these delivering SBs.

All teams are grabbing taxis and Eliza tries to Rachel & Elissa's cab. Corinne & Eliza are super bitchy and are bitter bitter bitter! They want to block them on all social media after the race.

Chris & Bret are taunted by the polar bear to squish the snowballs into the cooler. A torture!

Tyler & Korey and Nic & Vic want to get closer to the building. Corinne & Eliza's taxi driver stops and asks someone on the street for directions to the transportation centre. They are frustrated.

Leo & Jamal get to the clue box first followed by Rachel & Elissa.

ROADBLOCK: It's not uncommon to see entire families riding on one motorbike. To be sufficient at this very important adult skill, one team member must steer a motorbike around a student driving course without touching their feet on the ground to receive their next clue. The course consists of a series of bumps and figure 8s.

Elissa says she has major balances and immediately puts her feet on the ground followed by Jamal one after the other. "It's not as easy as what it looks like". Tyler & Korey and the blondes are crossing the street. Colin & Christie said there would have been a lot more profanity had it been season 5.
 :luvya:

Chris & Bret are on their way to the polar bear at the learning center. Britney screams finding a taxi is stupid.

Jamal and Elissa still trying to careen the taxis to their perfect balance. And Jamal finishes!

Make your way to Binh Quoi Tourist Village and find your next clue!

Elissa finishes in 2nd while Chris & Bret and Corinne & Eliza arrive in 4th and 5th. Apparently, the Speed Bump gets you to catch up faster than not carrying something heavy along with you.

Victor passes his test and are on their way to the tourist village. Eliza is SCARED of riding motorbikes.

"Who feels like driving themselves crazy? Me." ~ Colin :funny:

Tyler & Korey are stuck on the streets without a taxi while Janelle & Britney are hurrying to the motorbike driving institution.

We come back to Tyler & Korey having the extremely rare issue of finally getting a taxi and relieved they aren't running around in the streets. They are surprised with the taxi driver's fact about the amount of people every day driving on the streets of Ho Chi Minh.

Teams are struggling while Colin has an advantage - being a dirt bike owner. He makes up time as he finishes in 4th place. Janelle has more experiences with ATVs and extreme sports and is planning to catch up. She runs into a rack full of motorbikes. :-[

Leo & Jamal and Rachel & Elissa arrive at the Detour clue in the village.

DETOUR: Irritation or Irrigation!
In Irritation, teams must dodge annoying fishermen in basket boats (where's Flo?) along a 2 mi course to receive their next clue.
In Irrigation, teams must build a traditional bamboo water wheel out of the provided tools and parts to receive their next clue.

Both pick the water wheel task.

Tyler & Korey arrive at the motorbikes while Chris and Becca finish the RB in 5th and 6th! Let's go Team Fun! Corinne really hates mopeds now while Eliza says this is so terrible and scary. "This bike is big!" "I already failed? This is gonna go badly."

Korey and Janelle keep failing and the blonde crashes on her side.

Colin & Christie wants to do irritation because annoying people is super fun! :luvya: They are paddling and are about to give Flo a run for her money. Nicole & Victor are splashing water at the staged fishermen in the boats. Leo & Jamal and Rachel & Elissa are figuring out the assembly quickly.

Rachel & Elissa believe they are stronger than the other teams. They reveal once you become a mom, you are Superwoman.

Janelle takes her ride a little slower to pass the RB, departing in 7th with some foot race music going on in the background. Eliza is P-I-S-S-E-D.

Leo & Jamal are checked, but forgot to fill up the bucket for their wheel. Rachel & Elissa's bamboo chutes for the water to go in are crooked and must be fixed. Colin & Christie are at the bridge and delicately transition. Nicole & Victor are tired and are complimenting each other on their team effort. Meanwhile, Leo comments that the water sounds like pee. Rachel & Elissa are still disapproved and Rachel falls flat on her butt.

Korey passes the Roadblock and are off in 8th place while Eliza congratulates the YouTubers. She is on the verge of a meltdown. She's knocking down cones and the dark cloud that was once possessed within Rachel Reilly has now gone to her.

We return to Eliza breaking down in tears for not being able to ride a motorbike. She feels frustrated because she rides motorcycles, and Corinne comments Eliza isn't from a hillbilly trailer park so she feels fine. Uhhh....

Corinne & Eliza harvest five fish, but don't keep the basket. That's a no-no. Meanwhile, Victor & Nicole have both. See when you read directions properly? :)

Chris & Bret and Becca & Floyd are shown somehow catching up to Season 5 and Nic & Vic. Meanwhile, the frontloaders exchange placements in order. Leo & Jamal's jar is still getting filled while Rachel & Elissa must get another tie to complete the wheel. "I'm such an idiot".

Eliza finally gets it together with Corinne cheering her on, and then the whole city of Ho Chi Minh joins in the applause. They complete the Roadblock!

Nicole & Victor completes the basket bike task followed by Colin & Christie.

ROUTE INFO: Run to the Pit Stop, Tam Vu Park! Last team to check in WILL be eliminated. They are jogging to Phil currently.

The blondes and YouTubers are both doing the basket bikes while Leo & Jamal finish the water wheel. They head off in 3rd place. Rachel & Elissa are stressed out and are bickering over the wheel not being able to get water and wanting to switch Detour tasks.

'Last team to check-in will be eliminated' in a normal leg? Sounds weird

Chris & Bret getting to the fish. "I've always dreamed of Venice being like this!"

Becca & Floyd finish the basket boats in 4th place while Chris & Bret are off in 5th.

FOOT RACE! Let's go Colin & Christie!!!!! Nicole & Victor are walking and trying while Colin & Christie ARRIVE 1ST ON THE MAT!!!! A cute little girl greeting them on the mat! Precious! They're FIRST EVER FIRST!

As the winners, they have won a trip for two sponsored by Travelocity to the Dominican Republic! Six nights on a swim-up suite and a catamaran (Charla & Mirna: What's that?) to a luscious island with delicious dinner.

Nic & Vic are TEAM NUMBER 2! Rachel & Elissa are trying one more time and Rachel is not having it saying every team has caught up. Janelle & Britney are quickly doing the basket boats. "Now I want to water fight with these Vietnamese men!"

Tyler & Korey are making up time while the blondes are spinning in circles. :funny: Tyler sliced his finger open. Ouch.
