Tammy and Victor are leaving in third place, at 10:40. They're pretty happy about going to China, since Tammy went there for Spring Break two years ago. Hey, what happens in China stays in China. And so do most Chinese people, of course. "We get to speak Chinese now," Victor says happily in the taxi. Well, I'm sure they'll use it sparingly.
Jaime and Cara have reached the airport, and get booked on a 1:15 flight to Guangzhou and from there onto the same 8:30 connecting flight to Guilin that Margie and Luke will be on. Jaime politely thanks the ticket agent for her help. I don't normally mention pleasantries like that, but with Jaime it's kind of newsworthy. They wonder if Margie and Luke secured the earlier flight, and indeed, that team is now boarding, while Margie jinxes them again. Off they fly to Guangzhou, as Tammy and Victor arrive at the airport and get the same flight arrangements as the cheerleaders.
Kisha and Jen leave at 12:43, which means that going back for their bags during the last leg cost them a good two hours. In the cab, Jen asks the driver, "Do you have mobile?" as she mimes talking into a phone. He doesn't. "That sucks," she says. Well, its not like it helped Margie and Luke all that much. Jen says in a solo interview that now that they're down to five teams in the ninth leg, "That's when the competitive nature comes out in me." Like with all the other Amazing Races she's been in. "If I see somebody in front of me, I'm going to knock them over." Remember that. And in the meantime, Team Go Team and Team Family Law's flight to Guangzhou takes off from Bangkok. And soon thereafter, Kisha and Jen reach the airport, and are booked on a 3:20 flight to Guangzhou that will allow them to connect at 9:10.
