The Unexpected Twist Summary

The five remaining teams must get to the Temple of Dawn in Bangkok from the pit stop. Kevin and Drew are the first to leave. Only two teams are still eligible to use the Fast Forward; Nancy/Emily and Joe/Bill. All the others teams have already used it. Nancy says that she and Emily either get the Fast Forward or they're out of the game. Both teams decide to go for it although Nancy and Emily seem a little hesitant. The teams must get from Dehli to Bangkok either by using train or a bus. When the Temple of Dawn opens in the morning after arriving the previous night (except for Kevin/Drew),they are given a Detour. The teams must get to a monastery in Kanchanaburi by either using a public bus or a private car. The only thing they are given to find the car is a license plate number. The Fast Forward is at the Reclining Buddha. The two teams going for it must perform an old tradition in which they must drop the exact amount of coins into 108 slots. The problem is they have to choose the coins from a series of small trays, either being too many, too few or the right amount. Joe and Bill obtain the Fast Forward and Nancy/Emily must now do the regular challenge. The Detour proves difficult for the team so they opt not to complete it and take a taxi rather than a bus or a private car. When the teams get to the next destination, they get a Roadblock. In this particular Roadblock, one team member must walk through a pit of hand-raised tigers to receive the next clue. The clue tells them to get to the Tiger Cave Temple in Krabi. Team Guido, having received the Fast Forward, assume they have some time to hug and spend the night at the hotel. However, at the pit stop they are the last team to arrive. Phil, however tells them along with Nancy/Emily that the Guidos have not been eliminated. Nancy and Emily received a 24 hour time penalty for skipping the Detour and are eliminated. The Guidos' mistake, however, leaves them far behind the pack.

The Amazing Race Show Summary

The Amazing Race is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 10, 11, or 12 teams of 2 or 4 people against each other in a race around the world for approximately 40 days. In a leg, they go to destinations where they will complete a roadblock, a task where 1 person completes (Season 1-7) or 2 people (Season 8), a detour, where you have to decide between two tasks that are usually opposite of each other, and a miscellaneous task.

After they complete all these tasks, they will be directed to go to a Pit stop where they will have a 24 hour rest period where they will be able to eat, drink, sleep, and mingle with other teams. The last team to check into the Pit Stop usually is eliminated, but sometimes there is a non-elimination leg in which no one is eliminated. After all teams are eliminated except for 3, these three race to the finish line where the winning team wins 1 million dollars.
