She actually cried during her emotionally-driven commencement speech because they switched Detours... how mature.
-------------------------------LEG 6---------------------------------------------
RECAP! Unnecessary, because literally just look at this thread.

We come back to the second portion of the episode with Becca & Floyd departing in 1st. Fly to the Pearl of Africa, KAMPALA, UGANDA! After touching down, teams must travel to the Ugana National Mosque for their next clue!

All teams came in minutes after each other in the Dubai leg and they are hoping to step up their game. Chris & Bret are off in 2nd, proud of their progress in the race. Tyler & Korey find they are opening up to Uganda as part of the LGBT community in hopes of enlightening themselves on their privilege of being able to be a couple. Colin & Christie tell them to kick ass in the nation.

Britney & Janelle and Reilly sisters reunite at the Dubai Int'l Airport as the Mom Squad.

Colin & Christie are ready to go into battle between these final 8 teams, speaking as if they are in the final 5 already. Airplane takes off en route to Kampala Airport.

So are Tyler & Korey a couple now? Or they are just friends like before?

Teams arrive in gorgeous and raw Uganda in a mad dash, almost running into the sliding automatic doors. The airport workers are overwhelmed :funny: as their stampede takes up taxis. Leo & Jamal hope to see safari animals. Victor sees a cow roaming around. The weather is not ideal, we're having a legit RAIN LEG!

Teams must dress in white robes and hijabs to get their next clue. Nicole & Victor, Tyler & Korey and Chris & Bret get their clue.
TEAMS MUST COUNT THE NUMBER OF MARKED STEPS (172) TO THE VANTAGE POINT OF THE MINARET AND WRITE THE CORRECT NUMBER OF STEPS TO RECEIVE NEXT CLUE.

Bret is gasping for air as they must head back down unaware they must count the steps. READ YOUR CLUE!
Colin & Christie arrive at the mosque in 3rd.

Tyler & Korey get cocky and write the Googled number of steps. Psych! It's wrong!

Nicole & Victor get their next clue. TRAVEL TO OWINO MARKET FOR YOUR NEXT CLUE!

Janelle & Britney find the streets have no rhyme nor rhythm and are still making their way to the mosque. All teams are scrambled heading to the mosque with Tyler & Korey going to the market.

Rachel & Elissa arguing again counting steps while Chris & Bret finish the steps counting task in 4th.
Leo & Jamal head off in 5th! Rachel is P-I-S-S-E-D and claims every team is so much better than them.

Janelle & Britney are stuck in a particularly bad traffic jam.

We return to the blonde moms going down the middle of oncoming traffic, scared to go out of the car.

Becca & Floyd arrive at the mosque in 7th. Rachel & Elissa are debating whether its 270 or 272 steps.... and they guess the right number. Becca & Floyd quickly follow them with the right number.

Janelle & Brit are told they are last by Team Fun.

Meanwhile, Nic & Vic are making their way to the marked gate at Owino Market! They are headed to Soweto Restaurant!

Rachel & Elissa's Speed Bump is at the restaurant!

ROADBLOCK: Who wants a Rolex?
One team member must buy a list of ingredients around the market and head to the marked vendor to make one serving of a Rolex - a vegetarian dish wrapped in chapati - to receive their next clue.

Teams all confused about the Rolex watch and the Rolled-Eggs pun. Victor gets it first.

The Reilly sisters arrive at the market followed by Janelle & Britney, finding Soweto Restaurant in Owino Market!

The frontloading teams are trying to make rolexes and Victor gets it right second time around!

TEAMS MUST MAKE THEIR WAY TO GGABA LANDING SITE AND SEARCH FOR THE BOAT BUILDERS AND ASK THEM FOR THEIR NEXT CLUE!

Janelle has the wrong imagination of the Rolex and are searching around like a chicken with her head cut off.

SPEED BUMP: RACHEL & ELISSA MUST HAND WASH DIRTY LAUNDRY AND HANG THEM OUT IN THE CROWDED MESS AND A LOCAL LAUNDRY LADY WILL GIVE THEM THE APPROVAL TO PROGRESS TO THE MAIN ROUTE.

They’re not actually dating. Tyler is dating some guy with a name starting with A but that’s it. Look around their Instagram and you will know.

Chris successfully makes their rolex and are off to the boat landing in 2nd. Rachel & Elissa move on to the Roadblock with respect to Uganda moms losing that baby weight from washing laundry.

Leo & Jamal are off while Floyd does the 5-second rule. Gross. No one wants to judge that. :funny:

Janelle has explored the entire market without reading her clue properly. Congrats.

We return to Janelle in a state of panic looking for the vendor! She buys a Rolex without a clue.

Nicole & Victor make their way to Village Boat Builders disembarking their taxi.

Becca & Floyd head off in 6th while Elissa watches the demonstration in 7th.

The front teams get their DETOUR clue

DETOUR: Salty Roll and Move the Pole
In Salty Roll, teams must prepare a bunch of fish ready for delivery to receive their next clue.
In Move the Pole, teams must transport wood on bikes to a lumber yard and stack them like Jenga blocks to receive their next clue. (Get ready for some Siberian TAR14 fun!)

Elissa manages to get the rolex done in 7th.

They have had head to heads following both non-eliminations so far this race. Both teams got ahead of last place on their own merit (assuming Rachel and Elissa survive), and the speed bump still makes them fall behind as much as it can, so there's still sort of a purpose to it, but it feels like they're going out of their way to try to save the speed bumped team.

Colin & Christie's stack is BROKEN! This is bullsh*t. Colin says he is more loving and forgiving now, citing season 5 he would've reacted so much more vulgarly. Proud of how far he has come.

Janelle still finding the rolex while Britney says "you've got to be kidding me." They are frazzled. Janelle is ready to throw a crying fit.

Tyler & Korey finish the stacking in 1st place! HEAD-TO-HEAD!

IN THIS H2H, TWO TEAMS MUST FIGURE OUT A TOWER OF HANOI PUZZLE INVOLVING THESE TRADITIONAL DRUMS TO MATCH FOUR COLOR-SPECIFIC ARRANGEMENTS. WINNING TEAMS MUST CHECK IN AT JAHAZI PIER WHERE THE LAST TEAM REMAINING WILL BE ELIMINATED!

Nicole & Vic are off as well as My Ox Is Broken. Rachel & Elissa do Salty Roll.

Teams frustrated transporting logs while Rachel & Elissa arrive at the fish. They must gut and clean lake fish and salt the carcasses as their first process. They must roll them like the rolexes to pass.

Tyler & Korey arrive at the head to head and are reading the instructions. They must pull the oxtail near the drum leader to signal a check.

Blondes are off from the rolexes in last place. Off they go!

IT'S YOUTUBERS VS MY OX IS BROKEN! Nicole & Victor are 3rd! Chris & Bret are 4th! Head to head time!

We come back to the first ever head-to-head broadcasted this season!
Tyler vs. Colin, they must make four distinct stacks and can only have four drums in a stack before rearranging them. Phil is auditioning for his ESPN stint as he narrates the game play.

And Tyler & Korey are the winners of this leg! They win a trip for two to Singapore where they are staying five nights at the Shangri-La Hotel with a massage and city tour. They talk about how welcoming the locals in Kampala are.

It's Colin vs. Victor!
