Tricky challenges, unfamiliar transportation and the first Yield of the Race throw the teams into chaos as they Race through the beautiful and snowy northern Japanese city of Sapporo!

Teams begin this Leg at 11am on a brisk, sunny day after the city had several days of snow. Teams were surprised they would be taking public transportation this Leg and had to adjust and figure out the (at first) difficult Japanese subway system.

Teams maintained their positions, for the most part, as they made their way to the Hidamari Glass Pyramid and Moerenuma Park. But the Double Road Block proved difficult for all the teams as they struggled to get the hang of the snowball production. Teams also had trouble figuring out what they had to do with the By Hand half of the Double Road Block.

The difficulties and confusion allow Jacob & Jerika to move to the front of the pack, followed closely by fellow front-packers MM & MJ and Christian & Sam. Ehra & Michelle and Kakai & Cai manage to move up a few spots as well.

Teams then worked to figure out which bus(es) to take to the Sapporo Beer Museum. Despite leaving the Double Road Block in 2nd, MM & MJ are slowed down by the buses they choose. And that allows other teams to successfully target them for the Yield.

Jacob & Jerika, recognizing MM & MJ are the biggest threat, arrive at the board first and officially Yield the twins. Christian & Sam and Ehra & Michelle arrive next. And the Madrigal Sisters convince Christian & Sam to Yield Jacob & Jerika in order to block MM & MJ from Yielding another team. Though neither team knows that MM & MJ have a Super Yield available to them.

MM & MJ are not surprised to see their faces on the Yield, but are definitely surprised to see what Christian & Sam did. They decide not to use their Super Yield just yet, confident that they can still make up the 30 minute Yield time.

The Road Block proves tricky for most of the teams. But not for Cai who is able to correctly memorize the labels the fastest. She and Kakai move into first place as they head to Sapporo TV Tower. They decide to take a bus to save money.

Miriam & Ardy leave the Road Block and choose a taxi. Leaving the Beer Museum at the same time, Elma & Jojo, Jacob & Jerika, Wendell & Saviour and Christian & Sam decide to take the subway.

Sheryn & Mel leave the museum in 7th and hop into a taxi. As do Ehra & Michelle and Ina & Erika, but both end up having some communication troubles with their driver. MM & MJ, now in last place, also choose a taxi. But they end up arriving at the tower in 4th with the subway teams losing precious time.

The Detour offers another opportunity for teams to make up time. Or fall even further behind as MM & MJ, Jacob & Jerika, Wendell & Saviour and Sheryn & Mel would find out.

Christian & Sam, Miriam & Ardy and Kakai & Cai finish the Kira side of the Detour first and it is a taxi Race to the Pit Stop. But it is Kakai & Cai who end up stepping on the Mat first to claim their first Leg win! Miriam & Ardy settle for 2nd while Christian & Sam take 3rd.

Back at the Detour, the teams who chose the ice sculptures begin to feel frustrated, And as they see more and more teams finishing the Kira Detour, they decide it’s time to give up and just switch. MM & MJ are first to switch, followed by Jacob & Jerika, Wendell & Saviour and then Sheryn & Mel. Ehra & Michelle, however, feel they can finish their ice sculpture and decide to stick with it.

Elma & Jojo and Ina & Erika get their displays lit up and head to the Pit Stop to finish as Teams 4 and 5, respectively.

Ehra & Michelle, who stuck with the ice sculpture, end up finishing before all the teams that switch and officially check-in as Team #6.

Jacob & Jerika speed through the Kira Detour and step on the Mat as Team #7.

It is now down to the final three teams. MM & MJ and Sheryn & Mel leave the Detour at the same time, but Wendell & Saviour are only five minutes behind them both.

Sheryn & Mel, however, have trouble with their taxi. And that little delay allows MM & MJ and Wendell & Saviour to check-in as Teams 8 and 9, respectively. That means Sheryn & Mel are unfortunately eliminated.
