For the third leg of the Amazing Race, teams start off by flying to Hanoi, Vietnam. In Hanoi, teams race to the Hanoi prison. Duke & Lauren don’t have enough money to pay their taxi fare, but the taxi driver is ok with just taking what money they have. At the prision, teams search for John McCain’s flight suit.
After finding the flight suit, teams race to Hanoi’s Old Quarter to look for a flower shop. For their roadblock, team members must sell enough flowers to make roughly five U.S. dollars. After completing the roadblock, teams travel by public bus to Vac Village to search for a Buddhist Temple.
At the Buddhist Temple, teams encounter a detour and must choose between “Fuel” and “Fowl.” In “Fuel,” teams must make thirty coal bricks. In “Fowl,” teams must build a bird cage. After completing the detour, teams race to the pit stop at Canh Dong Dia.
Erwin & Godwin arrive in first place and win a state of the art home entertainment system. Tom & Terry arrive second, but they receive a thirty minute penalty for traveling by motor bike (which was against the rules). Tyler & James arrive next which means they claim the second place spot. Rob & Kimberly arrive in third place, Dustin & Kandice arrive in fourth place, Peter & Sarah arrive in fifth place, Lyn & Karylyn arrive in sixth place, David & Mary arrive in seventh place. After their penalty, Tom & Terry finish in eight place. Duke & Lauren Marcoccio are the last team to arrive, and they are eliminated from the race.
