A risky flight with a tight connection sealed the fate of married couple Uchenna & Joyce who landed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia hours after the other Teams checked in after missing their plane in Frankfurt. The only previous winners of the race became the seventh Team eliminated while beauty queens Dustin & Kandice notched up their second win.

Departing the Pit Stop together in first place at 9:48pm, best friends Oswald & Danny and married couple Uchenna & Joyce opened their clue instructing them to fly over 5,500 miles to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Working separately, the two Teams each discovered a 7:00am flight to Frankfurt that would arrive in Kuala Lumpur at 6:40am the following day. However, the biggest concern was a tight one-hour connection in Frankfurt. The travel agent working with Oswald & Danny instead advised a flight through Paris that would land in Kuala Lumpur at 7:25am. The pair accepted the connection through Paris while Uchenna & Joyce opted for the riskier flight through Frankfurt, saying, "It's a race for a million dollars. If we make it, it'll definitely pay off."

Trying to gain an advantage in finding a better flight, cousins Charla & Mirna went to a hotel to use their internet service. As each cousin took control of the two available computers, dating couple Eric & Danielle arrived at the hotel in hopes of using a computer of their own. When the dating couple asked the cousins if they could use of them, Mirna tersely replied, "No. We just got on." Deciding to return to the airport, the miffed Eric & Danielle poked fun at Charla & Mirna in their taxi thus becoming another Team irritated by the forceful cousins. However, the strategy of commandeering the computers paid off handsomely for Charla & Mirna who booked a flight landing in Kuala Lumpur at 4:45am.

At the airport, Dustin & Kandice and Eric & Danielle booked the same flight as Oswald & Danny connecting through Paris landing at 7:25am in Kuala Lumpur. The two Teams noticed that Uchenna & Joyce decided to risk the tight connection in Frankfurt. Eric commented, "You guys are braver than me. With all the stuff we've been through." A positive Uchenna said, "We're optimistic about it. Things should work out."

The optimism for the married couple quickly turned to fear when their plane landed ten minutes late in Frankfurt. With the gate agent telling Uchenna & Joyce that it was too late to board their connecting flight to Kuala Lumpur, the married couple begged and pleaded to no avail. After asking at other airlines, the earliest they could find a flight out of Frankfurt would be the next day. Very concerned, Joyce said, "Hopefully other people have issues. "
