Back at the dancing, Lorena and Jason are finally trying their hardest to impress the judges. They appear to rely on some down-up hopping, and in an interview, Jason says that he first fell in love with Lorena watching her dance. In the end, they do successfully complete the dance and get their clue, although Jason compares the tense wait for a decision to being on American Idol. Heh. They get the clue -- "U-Turn Ahead" included.
Up ahead, TK and Rachel are right behind Shana and Jennifer, still. And then they pass them. So there's that.
Azaria and Jen get loaded up and leave. It turns out that a lot of the struggle here is just asking locals for help finding your vendor. The two of them are sort of right together as they get going out into the market.
Kynt and Vyxsin, Nick and Don, and Ron and Christina are arriving at the Roadblock. Vyxsin takes it, as do Christina and Nick.
And here come Jason and Lorena up to the U-Turn sign. Lorena allows that she's "pissed," but frankly, they seem mostly frustrated and focused on getting back in the race. I'm not sure they're as appalled as the show might have you believe.
Azaria and Jen going through the market. Jen interviews that this was really serious "culture shock" for her, because she speaks zero French, so she was kind of helpless. It appears that Azaria knows a small amount of French, maybe, and he finds his way to his vendor first. When he gets his clue, it tells the team to travel to the Hotel De Ville in Ouagadougou. Phil says that this is where the mayor's office is, and it's also where the pit stop is. Jen finds her vendor, too, so she and Azaria return pretty much simultaneously. Vyxsin, Chris, and Nick are still loading up their bikes as Azaria and Hendekea and Nate and Jen take off for the hotel in taxis, just about neck and neck. Azaria asks his driver not to let Nate and Jen pass. In a hilarious-bordering-on-cute scene in the cab, Nate tries to kiss Jen, and she's like, "I can't touch," because she's all sweaty, but then she says, "Okay, touch me, touch me," and she allows him to give her a smooch. Aw. There's something kind of needy and demanding about "you may kiss me now," but there can also be something kind of nice about it.
So Jason and Lorena slog through the mining leg of the Detour. They dig out gold from their pan.
Ron yells at Chris in Chinese as she tries to load up stuff on the bike. Vyxsin's bike tips over, and Kynt helpfully narrates that...the bike tipped over. Nick is ready to go, and he leaves in the direction he saw other people going. Chris leaves after him.
