PHIL: Previously, on The Amazing Online Race, seven teams continued their journey through Malaysia, from a tribal settlement to a traditional farm. Helena's lack of a work-ethic rubbed Max the wrong way...
PHIL: Emile started to worry at Marlo tried to convert Tess to her cult...
THE BABY TREE
Somber music plays as Phil respectfully walks past the landmark.
PHIL: This is the Baby Tree, a poignant symbol of loss of life and nature's power over us all. It is also the sixth pitstop in a race around the world. Teams arrived here at the end of the last leg for a chance to eat, sleep and mingle with the other teams. Despite dominating the first half of the game, will Martin/Kayleigh be able to keep up with their alliance partners, despite falling into last place in the past two legs?
Helena makes a big show of holding up the clue envelope.
HELENA: See, look, I'm going to open the clue. Don't you dare say I don't do any work!
MAX: You ain't goin' ta be gettin' any of those until you do your share.
HELENA: Oh, we're going to Belgium, there's nothing to do there anyway.
Marlo/Laurie hustle into their jeep, after Laurie says a little prayer, as they wait for Martin/Kayleigh to join them.
MARTIN: They ain't there are they?
KAYLEIGH: They're waiting for us. And you're going to appreciate it.
MARTIN: Like I appreciate a hole in the head.
Elisha hits him with the clue.
LEONARD: You don't need to help me, I'm fine.
Leonard walks away from her and almost falls.
Max/Helena quickly pick up tickets.
MAX: We are confirmed on the flight to Singapore, leaving there at 12:55pm to London, getting to Brussels at 10:55pm tonight.
HELENA: And I'm holding the tickets. Once again, a very important job, that I am willing to do, to prove myself.
MAX: That ain't workin', woman. You try putting in a hard day's work once in your life.
HELENA: Now you sound like my father. Even though you're the age of my son.
MAX: Stop reminding me o' that.
Marlo/Laurie and Martin/Kayleigh reach the counter together. Martin immediately wanders off to another counter, where Graham/Missy are waiting.
KAYLEIGH: Can't we tell the girls?
MISSY: There aren't enough seats.
MARTIN: You know what they say about gifthorses, just take 'em. Thank you.
MARTIN: You're that desperate to have Marlo yak in your ear? Go ahead, I'm takin' a nap.
Kayleigh gets on the payphones.
Clark and Jessica queue behind Marlo/Laurie, who confirm their seats on the 10:55pm flight. After they both sort things out, Elisha sneaks back over.
ELISHA: Hi, I'm with Clark, the guy who just booked the tickets. Can you just pretend that we aren't on the flight?
TICKETER: I'm not an actress.
ELISHA: But...we'll pay you.
TICKETER: I was going to say that I'd love to be an actress so I'd do it for free, but thanks.
Elisha puts on a sad face and goes over to her brother.
ELISHA: Clark! You didn't book the flight!!
CLARK: I put us on the waiting list.
ELISHA: Were they sold out?
ELISHA: You could have just bought us tickets, they weren't out! Now they are and you put us on the list for no freakin' reason.
CLARK: At least we're on the top of the list.
ELISHA: Grrr... This is your fault!
ELISHA: Deal with it!
Clark mopes, as Elisha runs off grinning.
Kayleigh wakes up Martin, who slumbers on a bench.
KAYLEIGH: There's another flight, London to Belgium, leaving at 8pm, we get in 5 minutes ahead of the flight Graham got us.
MARTIN: Is it worth the risk? I don't want them AND the girls hating us.
KAYLEIGH: We're not hurting anyone, we're just helping ourselves. And given how we've done the last two legs, that's what we need.
MARTIN: You make the call. I'll make the nap.
Martin turns over to sleep.
Tense music plays as Elisha goes to the desk.
ELISHA: Hi, Clark's gone, so can we get our real tickets now.
TICKETER: What tickets? You said you wanted to cancel them?
ELISHA: No, you were supposed to PRETEND TO cancel them.
TICKETER: Well, they're off the computer now. We can put you on the waiting list.
ELISHA: Yes, hurry, GAWD!
The other five teams board the shared flight to Singapore.
HELENA: Well, I'm certainly not going to hustle anymore. Let's just take it easy and watch them get eliminated.
A rattlesnake noise plays alongside Max's sighs.
Elisha begs at the ticket counter.
On board the plane, the flight attendants usher the final people to their seats.
Back at the counter, Elisha continues to plead.
On the plane, the attendants get ready to close the door.
Insider, the ticketer finally responds.
TICKETER: Good news, you're on the flight to Singapore.
ELISHA: Thank you!
TICKETER: The one leaving at 1:35pm
The door closes on the flight carrying all five other teams.
CLARK: This is hopeless. And it's all my fault - how did THAT happen?!
Elisha looks guilty, as the screen fades to black.
Stock footage from Belgium at night.
Graham/Missy reach the cluebox, as Martin/Kayleigh settle down for the night. The five teams lead teams reach the cluebox and get into their sleeping bags to sleep on the streets.
HELENA: Art! Now there's something I know.
GRAHAM: I don't know much about art, but I don't trust comic books. All those superheroes, they're just unchristian.
KAYLEIGH: You want to work together again, girls?
MARLO: The Great Protector wills it so.
As those four teams depart, Leonard grumbles.
LEONARD: Bah! All these tasks are for lightweights. Frou-frou paintings?! Maybe the Fast Forward's a little tougher.
Max/Helena and Graham/Missy enter, as string quartets play a refined tune in the background.
HELENA: Now this is the sort of place I'm used to. Watch and learn.
MAX: I'm watchin' you do anythin' - the shock'll kill me.
HELENA: This one's head's too fat. He needs liposuction - if only Emile were still here.
MAX: Don't judge them!
HELENA: Why? Are you afraid I'll trade you for a better model?
Helena picks a subject and starts painting him.
HELENA: I say, do you know what painting technique I'm using here?
MAX: I don't.
HELENA: Well, that's pretty dumb of you isn't it. It's sfumato. You know how to spell that?
HELENA: Well, maybe you should read up on your English.
Martin/Kayleigh and Marlo/Laurie travel along the streets together, picking up the same Tintin figures. As they go past people, Marlo hands out flyers.
MARLO: Trust in the Brotherhood of the Shattered Stars!
LAURIE: Stop that.
MARLO: Why? We're finally in a tourist spot, some of the people speak English, they might learn something...
MARTIN: Yeah, they'll learn never to listen to Americans.
Helena finishes up the painting and presents it to the judges.
HELENA: [Currently in First Place] Now that's art. It takes class. That's not something you can get easily, dear.
MAX: No need t' rub it in.
Clark/Elisha finally land and get to the cluebox.
ELISHA: [Currently in Last Place] We're the only ones left. Shocker.
CLARK: I just hope someone else screwed up as badly as we did. Okay, as I did. Hurts to say that.
Quaint harpsicord music plays as Leonard/Jessica barge in the shop and head to the chocolate fountain. They look in horror when they see how many pieces need to be put together to correctly transport the molten chocolate into the correct container.
LEONARD: Damnit, I'm not an engineer. I don't work with plans, I go in head-on and don't care about the consequences.
JESSICA: Well, let me try...
LEONARD: I don't like sitting by and not doing anything.
JESSICA: Just pretend it's a Roadblock, give me a chance to shine...
LEONARD: But you're doing that because you have to, you're doing this because I can't. And I won't stand for that - I'm going to try this and finish it if it kills me.
JESSICA: If it kills you, we're both dead.
Leonard works assembling some pieces, which fail to connect. He throws them in the fountain splashing warm chocolate everywhere.
LEONARD: They don't fit!! But we're not giving up...
Leonard wipes the molten chocolate off his brow and digs in the fountain to pick up the missing pieces.
JESSICA: There's still time to go back.
LEONARD: I told you, we're not quitting anyway.
JESSICA: But this isn't quitting - it's an optional task. That's like saying we "quit" because we haven't done both detours every leg.
Leonard looks devastated but nods.
LEONARD: I...I guess I'll go with what you're saying.
Martin/Kayleigh and Marlo/Laurie stick close together, sharing the same map and quickly going down the streets. Together, they run into their first character: a Tintin lookalike, with pale white skin and a light blue sweater, carrying a candlestick.
MARLO: Relax, the cosmic aura's on our side.
MARTIN: Good for you, but I don't see it.
KAYLEIGH: You take this Tintin guy, we'll get one at the next stop.
A rattlesnake noise plays.
Missy blushes as she looks up at the handsome suit-wearing gentleman to finish painting him.
GRAHAM: Don't look too closely. Strictly above the waist.
GRAHAM: Phew. Wouldn't want you to have to spend too much time around strange men.
MISSY: They seemed nice.
GRAHAM: [Currently in 2nd Place] They're actors, Missy, they make a living by lying to people - that's what acting is.
Clark/Elisha head in as the father-daughter leave.
CLARK: You take care of this, I don't want to screw up again. This esd my first mistake in the history of ever. I don't want to make two mistakes in 24 hours.
ELISHA: I can't draw!
CLARK: You watch lots of cartoons, you know how they work.
ELISHA: I think you spend more time looking at men that I do.
Clark raises his eyebrows as Elisha starts the task.
Leonard/Jessica collect their map and begin checking the nearby destinations.
LEONARD: *sighs* I can't believe we're reduced to looking for comic book nerds. We chase tornados, not geeks.
An overhead map shows that Martin/Kayleigh and Marlo/Laurie decided to start with the furthest destination and work their way inwards.
HADDOCK: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! Curse you landlubbers, let's away with ourselves!
MARTIN: Why did the show pay these guys for a speaking part?
While Max/Helena board the train to Malmedy, Graham/Missy hop on board.
HELENA: Hmmmh - competition! The nerve of it.
Leonard/Jessica luckily stumble upon a Captain Haddock actor, along with two Thompson Twins. Leonard starts limping again.
JESSICA: [Currently in 5th Place] Are you okay?
LEONARD: If I can't just do a simple walk, I don't deserve to be here. So I'm going to keep on trucking.
MUSEE DU CARNAVAL
Bunched up, Max/Helena and Graham/Missy run up to the cluebox.
MAX: [Currently in First Place] There's the mask. (grumbles) Wish I was wearin' one so no-one'd see me with her.
HELENA: Aren't you going to be a gentleman? You shouldn't want me grabbing other men.
MAX: I shouldn't but I don't. (to Graham) Hey, you want to share a minibus?
Martin/Kayleigh and Marlo/Laurie tramp down the streets, having failed to find any additional characters.
MARTIN: The map says there's some Tintins up North. We need to go up there.
LAURIE: Okay, good luck.
MARLO: I sense a dark cloud coming over them.
LAURIE: That's just Captain Haddock's beard.
Elsewhere, Leonard/Jessica collect their final character.
LEONARD: We've gone out too far. It's going to take forever to walk back.
Elisha finishes her painting and presents it to the judge, who shakes his head.
ELISHA: [Currently in Last Place] Damnit, it must have been the wrong guy. You need to help me.
CLARK: I'm losing my mojo today with that whole ticket thing, I need a breather.
ELISHA: Clark, you've messed up before, you've just ignored it. Just ignore it again.
CLARK: But I didn't know I was being oblivious.
ELISHA: You did not seriously think you were perfect.
CLARK: Perfect enough by human standards, yeah.
ELISHA: Fine, you..."recuperate".
CLARK: Thanks, sis. I owe you.
Triumphant music plays as Martin/Kayleigh stumble upon Professor Calculus, their last remaining actor to collect, right next to the check-in point.
KAYLEIGH: Lucked into that one.
MARTIN: [Currently in 3rd Place] Don't talk about luck till Phil's telling us we're number one.
Leonard/Jessica, with their completed motley crew, slowly head to the check-in point.
LEONARD: I wish we could just run and get this over with. Damned age.
Marlo/Laurie run up to one of the marked locations: unfortunately, Leonard/Jessica already took the only actor who was waiting there.
LAURIE: What a waste of time.
MARLO: It wasn't a waste if we learnt something.
Graham/Missy and Max/Helena look concerned as their non-English speaking minicab driver starts stopping to talk to passersby.
GRAHAM: He doesn't know where it is.
HELENA: And he's a Walloon!
MISSY: No need to insult him.
Despite the long walk, Leonard/Jessica reach their final destination and grab their clue.
Martin/Kayleigh board and see Leonard/Jessica queueing for tickets.
MARTIN: Just two more minutes. I don't think the girls'll make it.
Marlo prays as Laurie drags her, and their comic-book entourage, up to the judge, who hands them the clue.
MARLO: I knew the Great He would lead us...
LAURIE: Yeah, let's ignore me and the all the map-reading I did.
Elisha hands in another painting, which is rejected yet again.
ELISHA: Was that the right guy? Or was the painting not good enough?! Gawwwwd...
CLARK: We all make mistakes. I've made one, you've made hundreds.
Elisha glares at him.
CLARK: I'm being supportive, I know what you're going through now.
ELISHA: Then know to shut up.
Marlo/Laurie narrowily make it onto the train as it pulls away from the station.
MARTIN: So, what, are we tied for last now? Fantastic...
KAYLEIGH: The sibs are probably still stuck there.
MARTIN: We underestimated them last leg. And the leg before that. They'll probably sneak past us again.
Elisha makes her third attempt at the task, and is handed a pity clue by the judge, despite the awful drawing.
ELISHA: I'm praying for bunching. Or non-elimination.
CLARK: Just pray for a miracle, they work better.
MUSEE DU CARNAVAL
Martin/Kayleigh, Marlo/Laurie and Leonard/Jessica are shown in quick succession reaching the cluebox.
Max/Helena get tetchy as their driver continues to go round in circles. Graham/Missy sit patiently.
HELENA: I won't stomach this any more. Stop the car, we're getting out.
GRAHAM: But we were going to split the fare.
HELENA: When we arrived. We haven't arrived and we're never going to arrive and I'm not sitting in purgatory any longer!
Helena gets out of the car, planning to stiff them for the ride. But wanting to show some independence, Max slips them the money as he leaves.
MAX: (whispers) Don't tell her.
The first team to arrive steps out of a taxi.
MARTIN: [Currently in 1st Place] I'm doin' this one.
Martin shoves his way through the revellers, who beat him over the head with sticks with dried herrings on the end.
MARTIN: Why can't these people get some good customs?
Despite the distracting folk music beaten out on loud drums, Martin quickly gets to work by rushing into the crowd.
MARTIN: Okay, I need 14 moons...that guy's got 7...so's that guy...That's a perfect total.
Graham/Missy's minibus finally reaches its destination, having bled 45 minutes.
GRAHAM: Gosh, I think you need to do another Roadblock, but I don't want you getting lost again.
GRAHAM: Well, that's the smart thing to do then.
Clark frets as the last train, 30 minutes behind the previous, heads to its destination.
ELISHA: We've shocked people before, we can shock them again.
CLARK: I shocked myself by screwing up. That's the only kind of shocks we'll be doing now.
Max/Helena, in a smaller taxi, run out and enter the melee.
HELENA: I'll do the grabbing - you just push everyone out of the way.
Ignoring the chaos around him, Martin aggressively drags two mask-wearers to the finish mat, where he is handed a clue.
MARTIN: Blue force - it always works.
HELENA: We're looking for someone with 25 stars on their jacket. Come forward and claim your reward. Don't make us come and get you.
The partying crowds ignore her, and one bops her on the head.
LAURIE: I wouldn't usually trust her to go off on her own. But she knows what she has to do, she's not going to get distracted.
Leonard/Jessica finally reach the cluebox.
LEONARD: This isn't about speed - it's about being tough. And I can be tough.
Leonard barges through the crowd, accidentally knocking over some revellers in the process.
PHIL: Martin and Kayleigh...you're team number one.
MARTIN: First team to do it twice - now that's what I wanted.
KAYLEIGH: See, we can get along together.
MARTIN: It's easy to get along when we get prizes.
Graham locks arms with Missy, to make sure she doesn't get lost in the crowd. Unfortunately, this slows her down, as she can't follow her targets easily. Graham looks for the symbols, so Missy will know who to target.
GRAHAM: We're looking for 20 stars. There's a 14 and an 11, let's get them.
MISSY: That's not 20.
GRAHAM: It's more than 20 - there's no harm in going a little over. Better safe than sorry.
Helena spots her prey.
HELENA: Max, grab him!
MAX: You're supposed to use the pincers.
HELENA: And that'll be easier if you throw him against a wall.
MAX: I'm not accostin' a local for you.
HELENA: You really don't have any passion, do you?
Despite his limp, Leonard drags two revellers onto the finish mat and is rewarded with a clue. Missy, lacking his strength, struggles, but finally manages the same feat. However, the judge is less impressed.
GRAHAM: Oh, come on, there's at least 20 stars there.
The judge continues to shake his head and lets the actors at their station free, bringing them back to square one.
Missy throws the pincers down in annoyance. She looks over and sees that every other team present has at least one reveller already checked-in.
GRAHAM: I hate crowds.
PHIL: Leonard and Jessica. You're team number two.
JESSICA: And we didn't even have to make chocolate.
Clark/Elisha hurriedly get to the task.
CLARK: You do it, you're bolshy.
ELISHA: That's a more tactful description that you'd usually give me.
GRAHAM: But...but I can't keep track of you.
MISSY: Let go, the guy's over there...
Missy fusses to stop locking arms with her dad, but Graham doesn't let go.
GRAHAM: It's too dangerous.
MISSY: I'm going.
She sneaks free and runs off further away.
Helena's pestering and Max's bulk lets them finish quickly.
HELENA: And we didn't even have to bribe anyway. That's good, we'll need that money...
Elisha's weight helps her get through the crowd, but every time she sees someone to try to grab, she is too slow to run after them.
ELISHA: Maybe if I act like I'm one of them...
Elisha picks up an abandoned mask from the ground and starts pretending to be one of the actors (which is hard with the cameraman following her around).
PHIL: Max and Helena. You're team number three.
HELENA: And it was all me.
HELENA: I got us out of the cab, I did the Detour, I did the Roadblock. And last leg, I chose to do the Fast Forward. So both our best positions were down to me so you'd better start earning your keep, buster!
Phil looks agog at Helena's backlash, which Max tactfully decides not to respond to.
Marlo, having been in her own dream world, fails to notice Graham/Missy's mistake.
MARLO: "23 stars". So if I just find the two with the most stars, I'll definitely have enough. Please come and help me. Stand still.
The jesters in the crowd shake and jiggle, mocking Marlo, as she tries to grab them with the pincers.
Missy returns to Graham with a newly captured reveller, who brings their total up to the right amount. As he breaks free, Elisha grabs him with the pincers.
[quote]ELISHA: I thought grabbing the people as the other teams were done with them would be smarter than tiring myself out by running after them. But...that meant I kept having to wait for everyone else to finish.[/quote
ELISHA: Anymore? Anymore? Crap.
PHIL: Graham and Missy. You're team number four.
MISSY: Good old fourth place.
PHIL: Seems like there's never any change with you guys.
GRAHAM: That's what I'm hoping.
LAURIE: Go Marlo! I'm getting anxious. It took seven legs, but I'm finally anxious.
CLARK: Go Elisha! Redeem the family name!
The jongleur juggles for Phil in anticipation, until he checks in the penultimate team.

I'm double shocked. Shocked at our first place finish and even more shocked at the eliminated team! Sorry to see you both go.

sorry to see the eliminated team go
I'm also surprised at my placing.. although I'm not gonna lie.. the roadblock and the detour.. I found extremely easy. I guess my risk paid off..

I found the Detour easy, but the Roadblock was completely confusing for the longest time for me.
On the roadblock we got the Real Gilligan's Island video in less than a minute, but when I went after the TAR screencap, I understand the clue to read it said a team in Cortina d'Ampezzo COMPLETING the 2nd leg. Instantly I remembered the snow rides there from season 4 (I used images for another TAOR season task from this exact season), but the teams did not COMPLETE in Leg 2 there - they COMPLETED Leg 2 in Venice, Italy. They began the leg there, but in Leg 1 they COMPLETED it there - so I had no idea if it was meant to COMPETE in Leg 2 there or COMPLETE Leg 1 there...went with COMPETED in Leg 2 there and provided a screenshot of the snowrafts. I spent way too much time trying to work on that one and reading and re-reading that clue...drove me nuts.

Sorry to see the eliminated team leave. Congrats to Martin/Kayleigh for coming in first.
