Previously, on The Amazing Race Australia!

As the final five hit Malawi, the gloves came off!

But in the race to mat, legend were forged and no team was left behind!

Tonight, as we reach the pointy end of the competition, the teams need to focus!

And in a shock exit, a contender will go home!

Intro!

Our five remaining teams are still in Malawi, one of the smallest and poorest nations in the world!

We have departure times this time! All teams depart just before 6:00am!

ROUTE INFO: Paddle a dugout canoe around Leopard Bay and find an island where your next clue awaits!

The wind is getting strong and the waves are getting very big! Teams just sinking in their boats, because there's only one person per canoe!

SPEED BUMP: Viv & Joey need to empty the water out of their dugout canoes, before they can start to paddle!

Femi & Nick are just loosing EVERYTHING when their canoe capsizes! This team is just a wreck!  :groan:

This challenge is very difficult! Teams need to paddle against the wind and

Of course, Tom & Tyler are first on the Detour clue!

DETOUR: Dirty or Smelly?

Dirty: Wash 30 times of clothing in a tiny bucket of
Smelly: Carry a bucket of fish up into the table and sought into three different spices!

The fish are very sharp and the Footy Boys cut their hands on the fish's sharp claws!

Tim & Rod are 2nd at the Detour and choose to do Dirty, because they both HATE fish!  :funny:

Femi & Nick are 3rd at the Detour and choose to complete Dirty!

Tom & Tyler only sought their fishes into 2 spices, ask for the judge and he denies them!

Jasmine & Jerome are 4th at the Detour, while Viv & Joey keep sinking!  :funny:

Tom & Tyler ask for a second check and are rejected again! They keep cutting themselves on the sharp edges and ask themselves whether they chose the right Detour!

Is the all-time record for any franchise for leg wins still eight? T/T will probably tie that at least. At 7 now.

We are back!

Dirty seems to be the easier and quicker Detour, the Footy Boys made a big mistake here!

After the teams wash the clothes, they need to hang them out to dry on the lakebed, before they receive their next clue!

Viv & Joey arrive at the Detour in 4th and they choose Smelly!

Jasmine & Jerome are last at the Detour and they choose Dirty!

Tim & Rod are out of the Detour in First Place! They open the clue to find the Roadblock!

ROADBLOCK: Who never tyres out?
Teams need to go to a market and make something out of recyclable materials!

Tom & Tyler are out in second and Tyler does the Roadblock, annoying Tom!

Tom & Tyler give some advice on the three species to Viv & Joey! They believe that without the Boys's help, they would of been eliminated already!

Because the Siblings are very short they cannot reach the middle of the table to spread out the fish!  :funny: :funny: :funny:

Femi & Nick are out Third! Nick does the Roadblock!

Teams need to make a pair of sandals for both team-mates (at the Roadblock)!

Jasmin & Jerome are out in 4th! Jerome does it! Viv & Joey are last again!

Viv & Joey get their clue in Last Place! Joey does the Roadblock!

All teams are now making their way to the Roadblock! Tim is doing the Roadblock and manages to cut his finger?

We are back!  :conf: :cheer:

Tim calls for the Medic, Medic gives him a BandAid and Tim gets right back to it!

All teams have now arrived at the Roadblock! Teams are now on top of each other, it's getting cramped and teams are getting ANGRY!

Tom lies to Femi that Tyler's Dad and Grandfather were shoemakers! Femi believes the lie!  :funny:

Tim goes for a check and it's denied! The judge says the edges need to be smoother!

Tyler asked for a check and is denied!

Joey goes up for a check and is APPROVED! They leave in 1st!

ROUTE INFO: Make your way on foot to the Nsapato Section of the market and listen for the sound of your next clue! The message is 'Amazing Racers, make your way to Harry's Bar!'

The other teams are shocked that Viv & Joey are out in First!

Tom & Tyler leave in Second! Tim & Rod leave in Third!

Tim & Rod ask for a local interpretation and the woman says 'Come and buy nice dresses here'  :funny:

Tim & Rod manage to interpret the clue and find out that Harry's Bar is their next location!

Jasmin states how she isn't allowed to give advice, she can only shout encouragement! Is this the same in the US Version? ???

Jerome gets approved! They're off in 4th and Femi & Nick are in last once again!

There's the tie for the record if my above post is correct.

Not surprised to see Femi/Nick go. Didn't think they'd be at the final.

Unpopular opinion sorry but I didn't enjoy the Malawi episodes that much unfortunately. Does anyone else think its weird to see such few teams racing in African legs - all the way down to F4? Typically they are mid-season.

Quite a lot of the tasks were make/build something and were a bit repetitive over two episodes. I think this is also heightened from the previous two legs being in somewhat similar southern African countries.

I am also seriously pissed off with the intervals that they are releasing the teams in - why the hell did they now decide to release teams two minutes apart and randomly show us the times this leg :idgit

This is pretty frustrating to me as it removes a core principle of the race being continuous over the twelve legs?? Not fair on both Jasmine/Jerome that were just seconds apart and Viv/Joey that appeared quite far behind on the NEL.

I understand that the producers don't want to repeat exact placements in consecutive legs (as this is anti-climatic/boring) but legs should be designed to counter this fact - this is particularly a problem in this season as there are so many double legs in countries :dick However, they could still use HOO, sign up boards, internal bus/train/flight travel to counter this.

On the other hand, its also extremely frustrating that we are not getting any flight drama whatsoever and that teams appear to be forced to travel together on the same flight by production. There has not been a single leg with multiple flight arrivals this season and I doubt that will happen next week. :groan:

Luckily, the teams have really been delivering this season and at least Tom/Tyler are pretty likable to overcome their 1st place dominance. I feel though that their dominance is in sometimes due to the poor leg designs in numerous legs however? Also special mentions to Tim/Rod for smashing the Leg 9 U-Turn and Viv/Joey during the Leg 10 Roadblock.

The production this season is letting it down for me, although I'm grateful TARAu is back on our screens and the teams are pretty amazing. Personally think the South Korea and Mongolia legs have been the best so far.

Looking forward to Thailand as I think it will deliver! :cheer:

Definitely preferred this leg to the one from yesterday. Nice to have some suspense over a leg win even if it did just result in Tom & Tyler tying the single season leg record. It's been assumed that teams left in intervals and it doesn't bother me considering Vietnam, China, & Israel all do that as well. The tasks were all pretty good and luckily for the show (and unluckily for the teams) that Lake Malawi was all churned up for the start. Femi & Nick didn't even know how they got that far, so ten legs was a surprise.

Tom & Tyler are so interesting. They've won all these Legs, but I don't feel like they're this overly dominant team. Like when you think of Natalie & Meaghan or Rachel & Dave or Marc & Rovilson, they really did dominate their seasons. Like their wins came very easy for them. But for Tom & Tyler, I don't really feel that way. They're obviously a very good team and rarely make mistakes, if any. But I think they've had quite a bit of good luck this Race as well.

Plus, it's not like they've had weak competition. This is a strong Final 4 and a few eliminated teams also had a shot at Leg wins too.

Tom and Tyler said it themselves, they've just been really lucky. I thought the sisters were the strongest team this season, but as we all know this race can just come down to luck.

I'm gunning for Jasmine and Jerome to win it all. It's not often here in Australia we see Indigenous people on reality TV, and they are definitely doing their community proud.

I obviously haven't enjoyed the lack of travel drama (everyone on the same flight, pit starts bunched together etc) but I can't imagine the budget was as big as the American franchise, hence why they've had to keep the race so tight - they can't have room for error as it costs a lot more.

For what I imagine to be a small budget, I've actually really enjoyed the route and especially having fewer teams race in Africa (which we don't see on the American version).

A bit anti-climatic. The promo do over-blow things.

We had that Tom & Tyler moment from the promo a few weeks ago, that didn't even get into play during the leg itself.
In the previous leg, what the promo called the biggest comeback in race history, still nothing compared to Jet & Cord, getting 1st, in a leg that they had a Speed Bump. There might be other examples of bigger comebacks that what Tim & Rod had.

The promo overplayed the penalty aspect for this leg, and it just ended up being an punishment from the official task itself, not something super dramatic. Even if someone had gotten 1 answer wrong, that would still be a one minute penalty. I kept expecting Femi & Nick to actually catch-up in the Pit-Stop, and lose in the penalty roll. Might have to watch it again, but was it just me, they would've probably been gotten a penalty for the RB, when the inactive racer "helping too much", when they were struggling.  They didn't catch-up and the conclusion  was quite anti-climatic. The promo said a contender would fall. Other than the fact that they did made it into the final 5, were they really a contender? I never got that impression myself.

That's nothing new to TAR Australia, their promos have a history of being fiendishly misleading. I mostly think back to the implied brawl in Season 3 by juxtaposing two unrelated scenes in Namibia together.

I agree with you! They got lucky for South Korea 2 to overtake Viv/Joey at the last minute. Vietnam 1 should have been Hayley/Mickaela's leg, but T/T got reallllllyyyy lucky at the roadblock. This last leg, again without the quiz it was V/J. They got 1 fast forward, etc.

And they are likable (I don't really like this kind of team usually but I like them). But it is never good tv to see a team dominate like that.

2nd. Tom/Tyler
1st. Jasmin/Jerome

I still predict, and want, J/J to be the winners.

I thought the latest episode was better than the previous one somehow, yet it seemed so overloaded with confessionals to tell the story (often just stating the very obvious).  Maybe that's a problem with the season, the producers can't be  bothered editing the live footage and just fall back on confessionals probably done after the show was over.  It can add to the budget feel.  Maybe most of the teams don't offer much to edit, but that's down to the casting.
