Cowboys/brothers Jet and Cord took first place in the April 25 episode of the Amazing Race.
Detectives Louie and Michael were last place, though it was not an elimination round and they remain in the race.
In the 10th leg of the race, the remaining four teams flew from Singapore to Shanghai. After arriving in China, they ran to a phalanx of cabs waiting for fares.
Cowboys Jet and Cord and models Brent and Caite got cabs with drivers who knew exactly where to go. Brothers Dan and Jordan and detectives Louie and Michael didn’t, which delayed their arrival to the first task.
Never miss a local story.
The teams took a leisurely boat ride through picturesque canals before arriving at the clue that took them to a Roadblock, where one of the team members had to master the art of making noodles by hand. After making the noodles in chef’s garb, they got their next clue from the world’s smallest man, He Pingping.
That took them to the city’s fashion district, where the teams picked a sketch from a model. They then had to find the clothes depicted in the sketch, from head to foot, and have the model put the clothes on. If they picked all the clothes correctly, they got their next clue.
The clue led to the Hongkou Football Stadium — the site of the second Roadblock in this leg. The team member who didn’t make the noodles had to put together a massive puzzle made of large tiles and then give the completed puzzle to an assembled crowd in the stands. If the puzzle was correct, the location of the next clue — hidden in the stands — would be revealed when the crowd simultaneously turned over the tiles.
That clue told the teams the location of the Pit Stop — the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum. For taking first place, Jet and Cord won a trip for two to Alaska.
The teams are expected to remain in China for the next leg of the race.
