Outside, Jon & Kelly get directions and head off. Jeff says that they are there to win. Kelly states she loves Jon and they will fight once a day no matter what. They still love one another. Reichen says Kelly has a mouth bigger than Sultan the croc.
The Goats get to Wangetti beach first and see the route marker. Detour. Saddle or Paddle? In Saddle, teams must explore one and a half miles of beach and find flags. Located within 25 yards of the flags is a cluster of clues. Only one cluster out of four has the correct route info, with three others telling the teams to try again. This could take a long time, but is not very demanding physically. In Paddle, teams must inflate a kayak and paddle to a buoy for their clue. This task is more physically demanding, but they are guaranteed to get the right clue. The Goats choose Saddle.
Reichen & Chip get to the beach while Kelly & Jon are a little lost. Reichen & Chip find the clue box and choose Saddle. They see the Goats go right on the beach, so they go and explore left. Jon eventually realizes they are lost and they ask for directions and have to turn around. Kelly says it was Jonís fault for not listening to her.
The other teams continue to search for the clues. Reichen & Chip see a marker and find a cluster. Itís one of the wrong ones. They get back on their horses and start to look again. They find another cluster and itís also a wrong one. The Goats find a cluster, itís the right one! The clue tells them to drive to Off Road Rush.
Jon & Kelly find the detour and choose Saddle as well. They see Reichen & Chip and start to follow them knowing they were coming from the other area of the beach which apparently had wrong clues. Reichen & Chip pass the Goats and say they donít look comfortable on horses. Reichen finds another cluster and itís wrong. That only leaves one left! The Goats get in their car and drive off. Reichen finds the last clue and they get the right clue and head off. Chip gets in the car before Reichen and as Reichen is getting in, Chip runs over Reichenís foot. Uh-Oh! They start to get a little snippy with one another.
Jon & Kelly find the right cluster and head out to catch up. They ask for some directions. The Goats at this point are almost there already. Iím glad to see they have a good sense of direction this leg of the race; they are definitely kicking in at the clutch. They get to Off Road Rush and find the Roadblock. One person must race in a buggy and drive through a bumpy course. When they get back to their partner and finish the course they will get their next clue. Dave is going to do it. He gets in the car and is off. This looks like so much fun! He looks like he is having a blast. Jon is still getting directions. Reichen & Chip get there right when the Goats are finishing up Ė they are still bickering. Dave finishes the roadblock and they read their clue which tells them to drive to the pit stop, Ellis beach, located 50 miles away. They donít hesitate to get out of there quickly.
Chip does the Roadblock and is off. He is having problems with the buggy and at one point gets stuck Ė he takes a turn too quickly and runs off the course. Reichen says everything is going wrong for them on this leg. The Goats are driving to the pit stop. Chipís buggy is broken and they have to give him another one. Chip is off again and this time makes no mistakes. They get their clue and head to the pit stop.
Kelly & Jon finally get there and pass Reichen & Chip as they are leaving. Jon is excited once he sees the Roadblock. When they open the clue Kelly says itís her turn to do it, but Jon REALLY wants to so she lets him. She says its Jonís special moment. Jon is off! Wait, no he isnít Ė his buggy stalls. NOW heís off! Going a little too fast, Jon looks like heís having the time of his life. However, at one point the car flips! Kelly goes running to the car as well as everyone there. Commercial, and when we are back we see Kelly screaming while running over to the car. She says at that point she thought Jon was dead and that she wouldnít have a fancy-schmancy wedding or win a million dollars! Jon gets out and he is laughing. They flip the car over and they are off again. Kelly yells at him to be careful.
At the pit stop, the Goats are checking in. Phil tells them they are first and win a trip to Europe from American Airlines. Phil asks them about anxiety. Jeff says itís on, and they are confident they can win. All they need to do is make sure there are no mistakes.
Jon finally finishes the Roadblock and they are off to the pit stop. Kelly says Jon may have grown up during the race even though it doesnít look like it. At this point, Reichen & Chip pull up to the pit stop. They run down the beach and find they are team number two. Phil asks Chip about being there with Reichen. Chip says Reichen has patience to deal with his blunders. Reichen says critics thought they wouldnít last that long, but they proved them wrong.
Jon & Kelly drive up to the pit stop and check in. Phil tells them they are last, but this isnít an elimination leg. Kelly tells Phil they have come to a sad conclusion during this leg Ė Jon and herself will not be having kids because they donít want them to inherit their stupidity. Anything that could have gone wrong this leg did. However, now that they have the mistakes out of the way, they know the next leg will be flawless.
Jon says Kelly has the will to win. Can the Goats maintain their first place lead until the end? Will Reichen & Chip pull together and take the lead? Can the underdogs, and only coed team, Kelly & Jon win it all? Weíll find out next week during the season finale! Three teams are neck and neck. Jon is nude! Every decision and mistake could be the last. Kelly & Jon miss their connection, that canít be good. Who will win The Amazing Race 4? Well, Iím hoping its Kelly & Jon, but thatís another story. Iíll actually be in New York for the finale party, so donít be mad if my recap is a little late. Iíll fill everyone in what goes on at the party as well. Canít wait to see how this one ends!
