They U-Turn the Afghanimals for telling a lie about not U-Turning the Beards. Oh, retroactive justice is sweet, but it won’t bring those beautiful men back to me
Tim and Marie finish with their camel and fail to see the tower. Tim makes Marie get their backpacks out of the car so they can look for the tower. Marie says, “I don’t want to do what we normally do and run 45 minutes in the other direction when it was two feet from where we’re supposed to be.” The camera pans over to show the tower behind their car. I don’t know why they didn’t check it.
They run off into the streets -- at least a half a mile away, according to Dater Amy as she passes them in her car. Marie asks a shopkeeper where the tower is, and he sends them back to where they were. So she’s not a happy camper. But! There’s still a U-Turn spot open, so they use it on the Ninja Wives to give themselves a cushion. They also claim it’s for that dirty standby-line jumping the Wives did at an airport oh so many legs ago
The point is, both teams who switched Detours now have to go back and do the other side anyway! The Ninja Wives get the better end of the deal, because the camel is faster. However, the Afghanimals were mostly done with their food prep, so it doesn’t take too long
Desert whitewater rafting, because they can
The Roadblock takes place at Wadi Adventure, the world’s largest man-made river rapids. They have to raft down, with a guide, and collect three flags that are hanging above the course. If they miss, they go around again.
Nicole takes the Roadblock and misses two flags the first time, claiming she’s not tall enough. The second time, she nearly jumps out of the raft, but she gets the flags.
Dater Jason takes the Roadblock and completes it the first time. Ex Tim takes it, but his raft spins a lot and he has to go twice.
Afghanimal Jamal gets in the raft, and Pink Ice catches up at the same time. Jamal and Ashley both go around twice, but Jamal finishes first
The Ninja Wives have been catching up this whole leg. Well, catching up to the Pink Ice girls who keep getting lost.
The Wives nearly catch up at the Roadblock, except they have to perform a Speed Bump. On this leg, the Speed Bump is to swim across a wave pool which produces a six-foot wave every ninety seconds. They have to jump off a wall into the water, and Kim is afraid of heights, but she doesn’t hesitate for too long. They swim across to a rope ladder but get washed away. Ninjas never say die, though, and they finally make it out of the water.
The Marrieds get first place, which is good because they used their Express Pass. They win cars. The Daters continue their second-place streak. They had a bad driving day -- but not too bad, apparently
The Exes are in third place. The Afghanimals take fourth, pretty good for being U-Turned. Their Race wives, the Pink Ice girls, join them on the mat in fifth. Phil asks them if they have plans to hook up after the race. Jamal jokes that maybe if they finish first and second they’ll consider it
Finally the Wives check in, accompanied by the Music of Sadness. It’s their third last-place finish, and they are finally eliminated. As they leave, one says, “I don’t like being a Ninja. Maybe we can go back to being bunnies.” Aw, they’re sweetNext week: airport confrontations! Tricky tasks in Indonesia! Jamal thinks Nicole cheats at a Roadblock! Plus, tune in to see which team I root for, because that team will be eliminated next!
