They must then deliver the three hides to a tannery, transporting them on a bicycle, where they will be given a receipt from the cobbler at Abdellah Boulim to which they must return to the tanner back in the tannery in exchange for their next clue.

Choice A: Twirl Time
At Bob Magic Music, teams must dress in traditional clothing and rehearse in a traditional performance of gnawa music, which they would perform back at Jemaa el-Fnaa. The gnawa performance involves one team member twirling their tassel on top of their hat by whirling their head while playing the krakebs, while the other plays the drums. Once at Jemaa el-Fnaa, the member twirling their tassel must maintain the beat through spinning their tassel consecutively under a minute in order for their team to receive their next clue from the band leader.

Amy & Maya, Kym & Alli, and Shelley & Nici chose this task.

Choice B: Tea Time
Teams must retrieve a set of Moroccan mint tea from Le Paradis du Thee, consisting of a tea pot, a sugar box, a green tea box, and a samovar, then deliver it to Palais Gharnata, where one team member must only use a single arm to balance the tray holding the cups, while the other must partake in the tradition of pouring the tea into two cups simultaneously by maintaining the two pots, each to a particular height. Once the professional tea server is contented with their performance, he will award them their next clue.

Adam & Bethany, Brooke & Robbie, Keith & Whitney, Misti & Jim, and Tim & Te Jay chose this task.

Teams must travel on foot to Le Grand Balcon du Café Glacier to find their next clue.

At Le Grand Balcon du Café Glacier, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Shelley & Nici used the first slot of the U-Turn on Keith & Whitney. Keith & Whitney attempted used the second slot of the U-Turn on Amy & Maya, however Amy & Maya already passed the U-Turn before Keith & Whitney, thus having no effect on them and going unaired.

Since Keith & Whitney completed the Tea Time Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Twirl Time Detour before continuing.

Teams must travel by taxi to Al Matjar Carpet Shop to check in.
