You Need to Watch Your Jokes, Guy is the fifth episode of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.


Racers depart Argentina and head to Mozambique where one team's taunting of another team quickly escalates into a war of words.

During a Roadblock, teams must get up close and personal with a rat in order to receive their next clue.[2]

Teams must take a taxi to the base of Martial Mountain Chain and ride a chair lift, pick up an equipment and hike a mile to Martial Glacier. Once there, they have to use an avalanche beacon to search the glacier for another beacon buried in the snow with their next clue.

Teams must fly to Maputo, Mozambique. Due to limited flights, teams have been given tickets to Maputo, but do not have to use them if they can find an earlier flight. Upon arrival, they must choose a marked car and driver and go to Apopo Training Field to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to would dress up in protective gear and would choose a trained rat that is used to find buried land mines. They would guide the rat to find a race marker above a deactivated mine. Once their rat gave the signal that it found something, an Apopo Mine Technician would search the area. When the Race marker was found, the team would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must take their cars and drivers to the Praça dos Trabalhadores, where they will find their next clue.

Choice A: Pamper
Teams would have to travel half a mile to the Maputo Central Market, choose a nail polish kit, and convince people to pay them to paint their nails, which in Maputo is a job usually performed by men. Teams needed to earn at least 30 meticais, which is about one U.S. dollar, to receive their next clue.

Charla & Mirna, Dustin & Kandice, and Teri & Ian chose this task.

Choice B: Porter
Teams must make their way two miles to Mercado Janet where they would use their bare hands to fill 10 large, 45 pounds bags with coal and sew each of them shut. Then, teams have to carry one of the ten heavy bags to a specified address where the owner would hand them their next clue.

Eric & Danielle, Joe & Bill, Oswald & Danny, and Uchenna & Joyce chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Fortaleza de Maputo to check in.

For coming in first, Charla & Mirna won a trip to Aruba provided by Travelocity.

For coming in last place, Uchenna & Joyce are "marked for elimination". If they do not arrive first in the next leg, they would be assessed a 30-minute penalty.
