This week, teams flew to Guilin, China where they were to search for a hair salon. When they got there, a scramble to reach the cluebox ensued. Luke got bumped by Jen, who tried to reach over him, then he threw a Karl Malone style elbow, nearly hitting her in the face! She said it was a "bitch move". The clue instructed them to go to the 24 bridge, where another cluebox scuffle happened. This time, Jen got there first and Luke shoved her, almost knocking her down. After the scuffle, they were faced with the roadblock - go cormorant fishing! Teams had to throw fish in the water and have their cormorants fetch 10 of them and bring them back to the boat. Luke got bit. HA!
All the teams finished the task before Mark & Michael even got to China, where they were faced with the speed bump - to wash and dry 2 ladies hair.
Meanwhile, the other teams were sent to the detour - choreography - learn a morning exercise dance or calligraphy - go to stations and write the Chinese clues to find where the next station is located. Jamie and Cara did the dance, while the other teams rode Victor and Tammy's coattails through the task. Once the task was done, they had to go on foot to the pit stop - Banyan Lake. The race was a neck in neck scramble to the mat.
Much later on, Mark and Michael did the dance and finally made it to the mat, where they were eliminated.

On to the list!
Rank. Names (last week's rank)
1. Tammy/Victor (1) – They are respectful of the locals and having a good time. They are just running their own race and not getting caught up in any madness.
2. Kisha/Jen (3) – Was Jen completely innocent? No, but Luke was way more at fault here. Plus, Kisha at the mat did not appear to be doing what Margie accused her of. Good for them for getting first place.
3. Cara/Jaime (5) – They were going to switch detours, but decided to stick with it and did good. Other than that, I have nothing to say about these ugly Americans.
4. Margie/Luke (2) – Luke is a whiny little momma's boy - I have been saying this for weeks - and yes he acted like a bitch! Margie was irrational and quite the hypocrite. She tells Luke the whole time to keep calm, then she lays it out at the mat. She also accuses Kisha of laughing at Luke's signing? No, Margie, it appeared she was laughing at his childish hissy fit. Even Phil said he didn't see it that way and that fell on your - sorry for the analogy - that fell on your deaf ears.
Philiminated:Mark/Michael (4) – Thank goodness we didn't have to see much of them this week. Good riddance!
OK! Your turn!!!
