The first four teams -- the twins, Trey & Lexi, the Chippendales, and Abbie & Ryan -- end up starting the third leg in a clump, searching for a restaurant somewhere in Surabaya. Once there, they have to do a Roadblock in which they serve a meal "padang style," which means carrying twenty plates at a time. The twins get a bum cabdriver and end up getting lost while the other lead teams finish the Roadblock and get their next clue sending them to the station, where they'll board a train to Bangil and watch for their clue during the ride. Roughly half the teams get on the first train, including James & Abba and Josh & Brent, but not including the twins -- who are going to have to wait three hours for the next one with everyone else.
On board the train, the teams get the clues outlining the two Detour options. In one of them, teams will have to hold flaming coconuts on their heads and have someone cook eggs over them, which the racers will then have to eat. In the other, they'll need to wear giant, heavy lion masks to participate in a parade. The Chippendales, Trey & Lexi, Abbie & Ryan, and Team Metal do well in the parade, while the goat farmers take rather longer with their cranial omelets. After the Detour, the teams run into a Double U-Turn. Jaymes from the Chippendales initiated a pact on the train for the frontrunners not to use that, so none of them does. Abbie & Ryan win their second leg, followed by Trey & Lexi. The Chippendales and Team Metal come in third and fourth respectively, and then Brent and Josh check in fifth before the second train even makes it to town.
This second group of four teams has no such qualms about U-Turning anyone, but substitute teachers Gary & Will are so far behind just leaving the train station it seems immaterial, while Caitlin & Brittany run into some frustration trying to pay their rickshaw driver. No other teams opt for having eggs fried on their heads, and Natalie & Nadiya are the sixth team to the U-Turn, but pass it up and become the sixth team to the Pit Stop. Rob & Kelley, however, U-Turn Gary & Will, which seems like piling on, and make it to the mat in seventh place. The blondes have more screaming arguments with rickshaw drivers while the substitute teachers take forever debating whether to U-Turn the team ahead of them or the team behind, and mistakenly end up U-Turning a team that's currently celebrating at the mat. Now they still have to go back and get their eggs cooked, while the blondes continue to flail -- in the background, no less. It looks like it's going to end up being a rickshaw-race to the mat, but the last two teams' courses diverge, and since the other team went the wrong way, Gary & Will become team number eight. And thus the blondes become the second team in as many weeks to be eliminated as a result of crappy drivers. But at least Brittany gives us one last snort-laugh on her way out.
"Java is one of 17,000 islands that make up the country of Indonesia," Phil informs us, apropos of how we're in its second-largest city, Surabaya. "This bustling market, open 24 hours a day, is renowned for its fresh produce and the city's largest fish supply." And, apparently, for a really tall Kiwi reality show host, which must be why Phil's standing on a counter towering over everyone else in the entire country as he tells us this spot is also the start of the third leg. He and a flashback from last week remind us that the twins, Natalie and Nadiya, won the previous leg with the coveted Express Pass as their prize. They're starting out this leg at 6:07 AM, when it's already looking like a busy day at the market. The first clue of the leg is telling them to go to Antika Jaya Padang restaurant, which looks like a family-style place with a clue box standing outside among all the parked motorcycles. The clue also reads, "Caution, U-Turn ahead." Sounds like drama. Or incompetence. Not that the two are mutually exclusive. After interviewing about how they only plan to use their Express Pass to come in first or to avoid elimination (which is what you'd think people are supposed to do with it, even though it never seems to turn out that way), the twins start casting around looking for an English-speaking local who can tell them where to go and that's how they soon find out they're going the wrong way. But from what it looks like, just getting out of this huge market is a good start.
Trey & Lexi, otherwise known as Team Austin, begin their leg at 6:12 AM. They soon run into the twins, who, we're reminded, they allied themselves with during the previous leg. Lexi interviews that Natalie and Nadiya think they're a couple of hillbillies (which is a less polite way of saying what they actually said, that they're a long way from home), and Trey's Jethro Bodine grin that he uses in place of words during interviews isn't going to prove anyone wrong on that score. Lexi goes on to say that bonding with the twins could help them. So far though, all the twins seem to be coming up with right now is, "We should go with the stupid Chippendales." How excited are we supposed to get about a plan that has the word "stupid" in it?
Speaking of whom, Jaymes & James open their clue at 6:16 AM. Jaymes assures us that even though they live in Vegas, he and his partner are small-town boys from Virginia and Maine respectively, so they're "good people." Would anyone have assumed otherwise who hasn't watched too much CSI? They soon run into the two teams who left the Pit Stop before them, and James interviews how it's helpful to have alliances early on. "That keeps you from getting eliminated too early, I think," he says. He's certainly free to think that.
