The Amazing Race - Season 13 Episode 5 - "Do It Like A Mad Man" Update

Sorry guys that I am a day late on this.

The episode is titled - "Do It Like A Mad Man." I shall post the final results of this leg at the end of my post.

This time, at their Pit Stop at Summer Hill in New Zealand, the seven remaining teams recieved a clue instructing them to fly over 5.600 miles to Siem Reap, Cambodia. The teams all scramble for flights. All teams except Andrew and Dan and Aja and Ty make it to the flights. Until Andrew and Dan go to the Emirates counter and finally at the last moment get the flight. So all teams except Aja and Ty make it together. They arrive late and have to scramble to make up lost ground.

In Siem Reap, the teams travel to a roadside pumping station where they are instructed to use a hand pump to fill a truck with 25 litres of fuel to recieve their next clue. Most teams finish it with ease except for the Frat Boys, Andrew and Dan.

Andrew: There you go!
Dan: You gotta do it like a madman.
This is where we get the episode title from. This time it is not from the Divorcess!

So after filling the trucks up, they are driven in their trucks to Siem Reap Harbour and then they make their way to motorized boats to the waterfront community of Kho Andeth. Terence and Sarah are forced to paddle their way and lose their first place after their boat breaks down.

At Kho Andeth, the teams face a Detour involving two tasks. The choices were Village Life or Village Work. In Village Life, the teams had to travel by boat to pick up three items - a set of fake chattering teeth from a dentist, a doll from a tailor and a basketball from a basketball court. Before getting the basketball, each team member had to score one basket. Then they had to deliver all the items to a man waiting on a dock. Ken & Tina, Terence & Sarah and Kelly & Christy successfully finished this Detour task.

In Village Work, teams had to travel to fishing grounds and then search for two traps filled with fish among a number of traps. They had to deliver them to the dock and transfer them to baskets before recieving their next clue. Nick & Starr, Toni & Dallas, Andrew & Dan and Aja & Ty successfully completed this detour.

The teams then travel to Angkor Wat for a roadblock testing sense of direction. The clue was "Who has a better sense of direction?"
In this Roadblock, one member of each team had to explore the temple of Angkor Wat for the Chamber of Echoes. They then had to stand in a particular sport and pound their chests to make an echoing noise before they could pick up their next clue from the chamber.
Nick, Tina, Dallas, Terence, Christy, Andrew and Ty completed the task for their respective teams.

The next clue sent them to their Pit Stop which was Babylon Temple where they had to search the grounds for the Pit Stop!

All throughout the race, Aja and Ty were behind the pack and were unable to catch up.

The teams finished in this order;

1. Nick and Starr (Prize: Five-night trip for two to St. John, Courtesy Travelocity)
2. Toni and Dallas
3. Terence and Sarah
4. Ken and Tina
5. Kelly and Christy
6. Andrew and Dan
7. Aja and Ty (Eliminated)

Toni and Dallas and Terrence and Sarah finished in an approximate tie and were checked in consecutively. Terence and Sahrah however, received a thirty minute penalty for being pulled over for speeding. It did not affect their overall placement on this leg, but will be applied to the next leg.

Some quotes;

Nick: "It just felt great. It brought me back to that first leg when we came in first place."
Nick: "To be honest, I thought I was doing some kind of war cry or Tarzan thing."

So what did you people think of this episode?
Did Aja and Ty deserve to be eliminated?
How is my summary for this weeks episode?
