Amazing Race Asia Season 4 Episode 3: Girl Power
From Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the 9 remaining teams of the Amazing Race Asia Season 4 now head to Colombo, Sri Lanka. In this 3rd leg of the race, the racers had to count more than 1000 fish or carry 12 blocks of ice in the 'detour', sell 40 packs of peanuts and sew a shirt in the 'roadblock'.
In the 'detour', some teams had to change from 'counting small fish placed inside a box with ice chunks' to 'carrying ice blocks' instead since the first one entailed accuracy in counting while the latter only needed some stamina in pushing the blocks on a trolley. In the 'roadblock', the first team to arrive in the area, the Indian Girls used their first and only 'yield' on the Singapore Girls. They did this in revenge of the Singaporeans telling the airport officers that there were no more seats for the Indians back in the first leg. I find this not so wise and that they should have done a strategy instead since the Singaporean girls were not a threat to their first place standing at all during that time.
In the end, the Indian Girls came in first at the Pitstop and won a 5-days-4-nights vacation at Colombo, Sri Lanka. The Hongkong Couple were the last team to arrive but were not eliminated since it was another non-elimination round.
