‘Amazing Race’ 24 Recap: ‘Smarter, Not Harder’

Teams Face Difficult Tasks in Malaysia

Teams started the leg off by going straight to their road block at Prince Phillip park. There, teams were required to jump on a bamboo trampoline and try to get a flag down from above their heads. Some teams managed to finish quickly, reaching their flag within 2 tries, while others took several attempts. Jessica specifically encountered problems when the trampoline gave her feet terrible blisters.

After the road block, teams had to fly to Kuala Lumpur and head to the Petronas twin towers for their next clue. Three flights were available. Flight 1, which got in roughly 2 hours before the last flight, saw Dave and Connor, Leo and Jamal, and Jet and Cord board it. Flight 2 (which then suffered a 50 minute delay and become the last flight), held Margie and Luke, and Flight Time and Big Easy. Flight 3 contained Caroline and Jennifer, Jessica and John, and Brendan and Rachel.

Once in Kuala Lumpur, teams encountered a Detour. In “Mix Master,” teams had to learn how to properly DJ and properly perform at the Sky Bar club and scratch. Jessica and John, Caroline and Jennifer, and Flight Time and Big Easy all chose this one. After initially choosing “Master Mix,” Leo and Jamal also chose this detour.

In “Master Mix,” teams had to properly mix a set of cocktails and properly pour them without mixing colors. Jet and Cord, Dave and Connor, Brendon and Rachel, and Margie and Luke all chose this one.

Margie and Luke considered taking the time penalty for not finishing the detour and asked Rachel and Brendon if they would do it with them, but they turned the offer down, telling them not to give up.

After the detour, teams made their way to the pit stop at Batu Caves. Jet and Cord checked in first, winning a trip for two to London. Following behind in second and third respectively were Dave and Connor and Leo and Jamal. Caroline and Jennifer, John and Jessica, and Flight Time and Big Easy checked in next in 4th, 5th and 6th. Margie and Luke checked in 7th.

Brendon and Rachel checked in last for the second leg in a row; however, it was a non-elimination round, so they were not eliminated and will make it to the next one.
