Teams start the second leg of the Amazing Race 10 by traveling by bus to Erenhot where they catch a train to Mongolia. In Mongolia, teams drive by jeep to TerelJ. In what turns out to be the beginning of numerous vehicle problems by various teams, Tyler and James get a flat tire. To make matters worse, they find out their jack is broken so they have no way to change it. After watching a couple teams pass them by, another motorist stops and helps them change the tire.
Kelly & Jamie’s jeep stalls out on them, but they are able to get it running again. David and Mary get stuck in the mud, and they have to get a replacement vehicle. At TerelJ, the teams ride horses to the detour. Kimberly’s horse goes under a branch, and she gets knocked off.
For the detour, teams must choose between “take it down” and “fill it up.” In take it down, teams must take down a Nomadic shelter and pack it on a camel. In fill it up, teams take a cart to the river to retrieve four containers of water. Peter & Sarah start with “take it down,” but they give up and switch to “fill it up.” After switching tasks, Peter & Sarah have trouble controlling their animal, who runs away with their cart.
On their way to the roadblock, three teams have trouble with their vehicles. Erwin & Godwin’s jeep breaks down on the road, and Kellie & Jamie and Lyn & Karylyn can’t get their jeeps started. For the roadblock, one team member must shoot a flaming arrow and hit a target.
Peter & Sarah are the first team to arrive at the pit stop, and they win a free trip to Mexico. Tyler & James arrive in second place, Duke & Lauren arrive in third place, Tom & Terry arrive in fourth place, Dustin & Kandice arrive in fifth place, Rob & Kimberly arrive in sixth place, David & Mary arrive in seventh place, Erwin & Godwin arrive in eighth place, and Lyn & Karylyn arrive in ninth place. Kellie & Jamie are the last team to arrive, and they are eliminated from the race.
