Our Final Four start out from Sri Lanka all wet from the pool...you gotta go through the pool, says Phil
Team Cutie Pie gets to leave first at 11:59 p.m. all nice and dry, but still very cute $142.00 richer. They need to get Shanghai'ed so off they go...4,000 miles to the Chinese metropolis to "make their way" to Yu Yuan Gardens.
Five minutes, six minutes and seven minutes later "Oh Shut Up" Hayden and Aaron, Freddy and Ghetto Ho Kendra and Mary Adam and Rebecca leave, respectively. Rebecca is very excited about being Madonna and Sean Penn and going to get "food" in China which is not Chinese food there it will just be food....you are brilliant Beck...
Oh, wait, this just in, ALL FOUR TEAMS are on the same flight to Shanghai via Hong Kong which leaves at 7:45 a.m. the next morning, so Kendra could have slept in at the hotel and still've been fine.
They all get off the plane but for some reason "Oh Shut Up" Hayden and Aaron did not exchange their money on the Hong Kong layover..I guess she was too busy telling Aaron why it wouldn't be a good idea to do it then because in Hong Kong they have no YEN....
So the other 3 teams go out to try to find a taxi ...but they begin to get the impression that their American hailing of cabs and cab fare negotiatin just do not work in China...just where is the Reverend Jim when you need him-at least he could understand them, right?
"Oh Shut up" Hayden gets all the YEN she can carry in her bra..whoops I forgot she didn't pack one...and her and Aaron leave the airport in a taxi for which Aaron has once again got ripped off..."oh Shut Up" Hayden, Aaron quips. Of course, they get lost...oh and that's Aaron's fault, too. I would have thrown the biyotch out onto the scary little alleyway so the scary little men could watch her hyperventilate.
The other three teams get to a hotel and they are told they are near the Garden (a two minute walk...famous last words) so they follow Kendra "down the Ghetto street" singing both "We're off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Shanghai Harlem" (thanks for your enlightenment too, there Kris) and "Ease on Ease on down the Slum." It's a crazy and wild time and it's so good to be one of the young beautiful American Amazing racers in Shanghai!!!
Okay, guess what, this just in, the Gardens are not open until 8:30 a.m. in the morning so "Oh Shut up" Hayden could have hyperventilated all nite and not had a problem!!
The next morning they all run into the maze of a gardern. F/K are the first to spot the clue box and they find out they must "make their way" to Yincheng Road in the area of Pudong and search the area around the Huaneng Union Tower for the next clue...by TAXI...and there is a YIELD AHEAD Mary Adam and Rebecca know they are "so yielded"
The other 3 teams are close behind and off to try to get a taxi Kris and Jon do get one, but what kind of driver is he? is he a long haired drunk Reverend, no, well then, they may have some problems...
Somehow the Model Alliance and MA/R are having trouble hailing taxis and THEY JUST DO NOT KNOW WHY, THEY ARE PRETTY, right? right? Please tell them they are pretty and do it NOW over and over!!! Is it because Kendra is an American? Are they discriminating against KENDRA because she is just too darn beautiful? Maybe the taxi drivers believe you look too "American Ghetto" and they are afraid you will stink up their cab....who knows what "THESE PEOPLE" are thinking!?!
The first of the Model Alliance makes it to the Tower and F/K, being astute racers, decide to use the last remaining yield on Mary Adam and Rebecca in order for them to "TASTE IT" like Kendra did in Ethiopia. The other model team is close behind.
Meanwhile poor Kris and Jon are still in the cab standing still in traffic.
The Models find out that they must do menial labor and wash a window on a VERY TALL TOWER!!! Kendra first balks and tells Freddy "I don't do windows" but Freddy threatens to "BREAK HER FACE" because he never did find who lowered that bar a few weeks back so Kendra reluctantly agrees to do the chore.
"Oh Shut Up" Hayden could barely do the detour last week that had her up a relatively small tree so Aaron is forced to perform his 6th and final Road Block...we'll see if this comes back to haunt them next week.
Kris and Jon are still in the cab and "Oh shut up" Hayden is incognito as a palm tree to keep Mary Adam and Rebecca from spotting her and the clue box which will tell them they have indeed been "100% Yielded." Despite "Oh Shut up" Hayden's efforts, they do find the Yield and wait. Kris and Jon finally show up, tell their taxi driver he SUCKED and Mary Adam says what we all were thinking...WOW I guess they are not robots and can show some emotion....SWEEEEEEETTT EMOOOOOOOOOOOTION.....
Aaron is a pretty fine window washer and he cleans it off quick and Bill Cullen's voice comes out of nowhere and whispers "The Password is Tai Chi" and he easily makes it to the bottom of the building and the next clue. He immediately says to Hayden "Oh Shut Up" and they're off to the People's Monument on the BUND?? to find the Tai Chi Masters
