Teams must fly to Colombo, Sri Lanka. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to the Gangaramaya Temple, where teams will receive a blessing from the head monk to receive their next clue.

Teams must travel by train to Galle. Once there, teams must search for the marked king coconut stand to find their next clue.

Choice A: Fishing Pole
Teams would have to wade out into the surf and then climb up onto traditional fishing stilts from which they can fish. Once both team members catch a fish, they'll give them to a local fisherman in exchange for their next clue.

Dave & Connor and Jet & Cord chose this task.

Choice B: Spin Control
Teams would have to learn a traditional Kandyan dance and then perform it, all while balancing a spinning raban on a stick. Once the lead dancer is pleased with their performance, he will give the team their next clue.

Brendon & Rachel, Caroline & Jennifer, Flight Time & Big Easy, Jessica & John, and Leo & Jamal chose this task.

Due to falling too far behind, Margie & Luke did not perform any of the tasks on this leg.[1]

Teams must travel by taxi to the Trendy Connections Garment Factory to find their next clue

At Trendy Connections Garment Factory, Brendon & Rachel would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

Brendon & Rachel have to use a silk screening to apply the final color to T-shirts bearing the flag of Sri Lanka. They have to complete a total of 15 silk screens before they are allowed to continue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to properly sew a shirt in the garment factory. Once the floor manager approves their work, he'll direct the team to a heat transfer machine which will print the name of their next location onto the shirt.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Due to falling too far behind, Margie & Luke did not perform any of the tasks on this leg.[1]
