In this Roadblock, teams must eat a plate of grasshoppers, scorpions, starfish and other fried creepy crawlies. Victor is the chosen one. Victor is a trooper. He eats it quickly. Tammy makes a bunch of cute faces when he describes how the larva tasted. Margie/Luke don’t find the U-Turn station either.

Jen/Kisha discover that they were U-Turned by Tammy/Victor. They have to do the other task. They are both terrible with languages. They say the craziest things to the cook.
Jaime is being very stubborn. They have been told a few times where to go, but she insists that they have already been there. Jaime/Cara have been looking for it for 3 hours. Kisha/Jen leave for the Roadblock.
Jaime finally says to go back to the opera house. Jen decides to eat the critters. Jaime/Cara find the U-Turn station. Jaime is being a bitch and blames Cara for not going back to the opera house sooner.

Kisha/Jen finish before the girls. They don’t find a taxi. Jaime/Cara finish, but Kisha/Jen are already on their way. Their taxi is really fast. Jen uses a portable toilet. Jaime/Cara make a run for it. Jen is still in the toilet. Both teams are looking for Phil. Jaime/Cara finish 3rd.
