Not long after, the other two teams arrive in South Korea. They both get taxis and head off to get the clue. Reichen & Chip are having a tough time with getting directions because their driver doesn’t understand them. Jon & Kelly get their clue first with Reichen & Chip right behind them. As Kelly & Jon head off, Reichen & Chip’s driver doesn’t understand where they want to go, so they end up telling him to take them to a hotel where they can get a driver that will understand them. They wait a good while at a hotel to get an English-speaking driver, but finally head off.
The Goats and Clowns realize they are lost when they see their driver get out and ask for directions. Reichen & Chip's driver knows exactly where he’s going and has his hazard lights on so that he can go through stop signs and red lights because it’s an “emergency.” The Goats and Clowns are near the North Korean border and see a fleet of tanks on the street along with some soldiers. They begin to worry and tell their driver to turn around. Kelly and Jon are near the next route marker, as are Reichen & Chip, thanks to their speedy driver. Kelly & Jon pass the Goats and Clowns, who see them and start to follow. Reichen & Chip arrive at the Sundam Valley first and can’t believe it. Jon & Kelly are second. Chip notes that the Goats and Clowns have formed a small alliance as he sees them get out of the same cab. He also states that he would rather see one of them get eliminated next because he thinks they’re stronger competition than Kelly & Jon.
The teams open the clues and find it’s a Roadblock. Who has a colder personality? In this Roadblock, one person from each team must get in the frigid water and fight the current as they swim under the ice to the other side. When their body temperature is at a safe level, they can proceed. I’m sorry, but this looks way too cold! I know I would never be able to do it! Chip chooses to do it for his team and is up first. He jumps in and swims to the other side rather quickly. He takes some time to warm up and gets their clue. They must make their way to the next route marker located in Subway Station 228 in Seoul. This is a very crowded station. Jon is next (from Jon & Kelly) and quickly finishes as well. They get their clue and ride off to the next route marker. Jeff goes for his team and says its rough watching two teams go before you. He jumps in the water and swims like a fish to the other side, noting that the bitter cold water can be disorienting. He has a bit of trouble getting his body temperature back up, but after a few minutes he’s fine and the Goats head out. Al goes for the Clowns and says he felt like his toes were going to fall off. He finishes and Jon says that Al is an amazing guy.
Since the Goats shared a cab with the Clowns, they have to wait around. Jeff says they have to get separate cabs because this is about survival. The clowns head out, not sure if the Goats took their cab. They get to the top of the hill and see they waited. They all get in the taxi and head off. The Goats lose some time when they jump out of the cab at an intersection and get one for themselves, but it doesn’t really wind up mattering because all the teams are stuck in traffic. The Clowns decide it would be easier just to jump on the subway. The Goats and Reichen & Chip are having the same idea. Kelly has that idea as well, but Jon isn’t too keen on it. They start to get snippy with each other. All teams wind up getting on the subway except Jon & Kelly. Kelly says Jon is being an a**hole and she is engaged to the a**hole. I love you, Kelly. The Goats end up getting on the wrong train and get off the subway and catch another cab. Reichen & Chip find the correct stop at the same time Kelly & Jon arrive. Kelly & Jon find the route marker first. I guess Jon was right again - the cab was the way to go!
Detour! Strong Hands or Strong Stomach? In Strong Hands, teams must follow a map to a Tae Kwan Doe martial arts center. Once there, each team member must break 3 piles of boards. It’s a daunting task, but may prove easy if teams listen to their instructors. In Strong Stomach, each team member must eat a local delicacy. The catch: it’s live octopus. No skill is required, but teams will only finish as fast as their stomachs will allow. Kelly & Jon immediately choose Hands because Kelly says it’s probably something gross that she won’t eat. Reichen & Chip find the Detour and choose Stomach as it’s closer. They ask a local where the shop is and she leads them to it. They walk in and see the live octopus in a bowl. It is taken in the back, chopped up, and put in front of them. Kelly & Jon find the dojo. Looks like the Goats are lost at this point because their driver doesn’t understand a word they are saying.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
