Oh, Wow! It's Like One of Those Things You See on TV! is the third episode of The Amazing Race 10.

Synopsis

Tempers flare between two teams when one team thinks the other team isn't playing fairly.

With no money in their pockets, one team is left behind while the others head off to their next destination. Another team loses their lead when they make a crucial mistake and board the wrong bus. Teams discover they will not be given any additional money for this leg of the Race and must earn it instead. Finally, a route marker evokes strong emotions in the Racers as they reflect on the sorrowful memories of a past war.[2]

Teams must find a marked flower shop in Old Quarter, one and a half miles away from the prison, to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to take a bike and sell enough flowers to earn a total of 80,000 Vietnamese dong, equivalent to about 5 USD. Once they've completed the task, the shopkeeper will hand them their next clue. Any money they earn during the task, teams may keep.
