The teams made their way from Bangil, Indonesia to Dhaka, Bangladesh. In this leg, all teams were on equal ground upon arrival after getting the same flights.
After arriving at the roadblock of a bus repair shop a fast forward was also available. A fast forward, allows team to skip all other tasks and go directly to the Pit Stop. James and Abba chose the fast forward, which had them collecting dead rats from various locations throughout the city.
All other teams chose to do the roadblock where they had to putty, repaint and sand the side of a bus, and then deliver three sets of seats to the refurbishing area to receive their next clue. Abbie and Ryan finished first and made their way to an outdoor market where they would dig for a clue through a bucket of dead dried and apparently smelly fish. They were followed closely behind by Rob and Kelley and Natalie and Nadiya. Josh and Brent, James and Jaymes, Trey and Lexi, and as usual Gary and Will brought up the rear. After finding their clue, teams could choose from two detours. In “Pound the Metal,” they uses sledgehammers to beat an iron rod into a spike. In “Pound the Cotton,” teams made a mattress the Bengali way. Abbie and Ryan, Josh and Brent, Jaymes and James and Gary and Will decided to make a mattress the Bengali way. Natalie and Nadiya, Rob and Kelley, and Trey and Lexi decided to pound out a spike.
The Fast Forward paid off for James and Abba, who came in first and won a trip for two to Antigua. In a foot race, Abbie and Ryan beat Natalie and Nadiya to the mat by a hot second. Rob and Kelley arrived fourth, but had to go back because they failed to take a taxi to the launch dock, instead the jumped on a different boat which took them directly to the Pit Stop, which allowed Josh and Brent to sneak into 4th place. Rob and Kelley managed to still be in 5th place after their mistake. James and Jaymes came in at 6th place. Trey and Lexi and Gary and Will made the same mistake by not taking a boat at all, and having to go back and then return to the Pit Stop by boat again. Trey and Lexi arrived seventh, and Gary and Will were eliminated after their 8th place finish.
