The frat boys, Andrew and Dan, made a mark in this episode, with Andrew proclaiming that this leg could be the "turning point" in their relationship. Dan, it seems, can be wacky and unfocused. Andrew is here to win!
The relationship-defining leg begins with a trip from New Zealand, last week's pit stop, to the next location, Cambodia.
The divorcees declare that from now on they will "utilize their brain power to be number one." Frequent AR watchers know this ensures they will do stupid things, and not be number one.
When the boys get their clue to go to Cambodia, Andrew, the focused one, says: "Where the hell is Cambodia?"
Dan replies: "It's in Asia. You didn't learn that in school?"
Andrew replies: "I didn't go to a fancy private school."
There's another love story on this leg, that of Aja & Ty. We learn from Aja, that she thinks Ty is just beautiful and he makes her tingly. We learn that Ty would not trade Aja in for "a Porsche or anything like that." To her credit, Aja finds this less than complimentary.
But back to the race. After hopping into cabs, the first task of the contestants is to go to a harbor and pump gas into a boat. It seems easy enough. Naturally, for the frat boys, it's perplexing. No gas will pump for them. Andrew tries and tries, even watching the others to see how they do it. Nothing. Dan challenges him: "You can't pump like a baby. Pump stronger." Andrew insists that's not the issue.
Finally, after the brainy divorcees past them, Dan takes over and pumps "like a madman," showing the more focused Andrew how it's done.
Next, the players must take a boat to a floating village. They must choose between two detours: village life or village work. Life means taking your boat to three locations and picking up 3 items: a pair of chattering teeth, a doll and a basketball and you must make a basket on the floating basketball court.
Work means wading into muddy water, picking up traps filled with fish and then transferring those fish into two baskets.
Earlier in the episode, Terrance and Sarah got a speeding ticket on the way to the airport. Sarah says she's surprised, she always thought Terrance was a slow driver. Now, on the way to the floating village, we learn that Sarah is a bit of a speed demon. She seems, some how, to have learned the Cambodian work for "fast," and she uses it like a whip. Naturally, their boat breaks down.
The divorcees "brain power" comment comes back to bite them. They spot others ahead of them beginning their task and jump in, because, they say, they are young and quick. And then they remember, they are supposed to find the clue box first.
Later, they go to the floating dentist to get the teeth and think, at first, they are going to take the teeth of a patient being worked on.
The next task is to head to the temple Angkor Wat. There, they are to explore the temple for a specific room, stand in a specific spot and thump their chest to cause an echo. Then they could retreive the clue.
Nick receives the weekly ugly American prize with this comment about the chest thump: "I didn't know if I had done a war cry or a Tarzan thing."
Frat boy Andrew proclaims the temple "the original Playboy Mansion," coming in a close second.
From the temple it's on to the pit stop, another temple. Last place is between the frat boys and Aja & Ty. The frat boys get lost, of course, but time is on their side.
Last place belongs to Aja & Ty. But it's OK. Ty has "redefined love" for Aja. And Ty will move to Los Angeles to be with her. Hopefully, no Rolls Royce will come between them.
