The teams are all heading out from the airport. Tyler and Korey’s cab driver is taking selfies. The teams are noting how pretty it is. They arrive at a camp fire and there are several luxury cars out there and they welcomed by 5 men and they drink tea. Their clues are in the cars and teams must continue to the Dubai Frame and make their way to the top for their next clue.

Chris and Bret arrive at the roadblock. Who can feel the beat? It’s silent rave night. Everyone is listening to headphones and listening to different mixes. But a few are dancing to the DJ’s beat. The teams must use their powers of observation to determine who is dancing to the music of the DJ. Chris is doing the roadblock.


Leo and Jamal are on their fourth attempt and Rachel and Elissa are on their second attempt. Leo and Jamal fail their test again. They are frustrated and say mistakes like this can cost them. They say it’s taking too long.
