At Zapatera, the alliance of six started cracking as David and Sarita continued their feud. The next day, the tribes met up for the Reward/ Immunity challenge which was an obstacle course that ended with the tribes shooting balls into a basket. The challenge was very close, but in the end Ometepe pulled out a win. Besides immunity, the tribe was also awarded with a picnic lunch atop an active volcano. During the lunch, Rob found another clue to the hidden immunity idol but threw it into the volcano since he already has the idol. Over on Zapatera, the tribe debated whether to vote out Sarita or David. At tribal council the tribe decided to keep their best puzzle solver and instead voted out Sarita. Next week she'll duel Matt and the winner will get to re-enter the game. Also next week the tribes will finally merge!

The episode began with Kent and Vyxsin finding their misplaced passports and finally checking into the fake Pit Stop. Phil told them they were still in the game and gave them their next clue. Said clue instructed all nine teams to take a train back to Kunming, China and search for a flower market. All the teams got the same train to Kunming, allowing Kent and Vyxsin to catch up to the rest of the pack. When the teams found the flower market they also found this leg's Detour. The choice of tasks was between memorizing the order of fifteen people dressed in traditional outfits and then recreating the order using dolls or hauling three heavy boxes to the roof of a tall building, unpacking the boxes and assembling a solar water heating system. When the task was completed teams were given a photo of their next destination - Chinese Minority Heritage Center - and had to figure out how to get there. Ron & Christina, Zev & Justin and Gary & Mallory went to the wrong location, causing them to fall behind the other teams. When the teams found the correct location they also found the race's first Double U-Turn. Kent and Vyxsin were the first team to use the U-Turn, penalizing Jamie and Cara. Jamie and Cara used the other half of the U-Turn, penalizing the Globetrotters. Both teams had to go back and complete the other Detour task. The rest of the teams were instructed to the Stone Forest, where they faced a Roadblock. One team member had to correctly assemble a twenty foot model of a dinosaur. Because they were far behind, Gary & Mallory decided to use their Express Pass which allowed them to skip the task and head straight for the Pit Stop. However, Jet & Cord were able to complete their model first and beat Gary & Mallory to the Pit Stop, earning them $5,000 each. While the Globetrotters were able to overcome their U-Turn and check in sixth, Jamie and Cara weren't so lucky with theirs. They arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race.

The men, on the other hand, bought hedges and trees for the outside area, but didn't put too much effort into the interior. Once the teams finished designing their RVs, the Camping World rep toured both spaces and then sat down with Trump to pick a winner. In the boardroom, Donald announced that the men's team had won and that Gary would receive $40,000 for his charity. On the women's side, Trump's decision was made easy when project manager Niki took sole responsibility for her team's loss. Donald respected Niki's wishes and eliminated her from the competition.

"Father/Son" Mike and Mel White Eliminated from "Amazing Race 18: Unfinished Business"

On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" father/son duo Mike and Mel White became the second team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the remaining ten teams flying from Sydney, Australia to Tokyo, Japan.

When the teams landed they were instructed to a rotating parking garage where they picked up a car and drove to a nearby dojo. On the drive to the dojo, Jamie and Cara hit another car and had to wait while the man in the car called the police to sort out the situation. At the dojo the teams found a Roadblock, which required one team member to learn and perform a samurai ritual and then shoot an arrow at a target while spinning on a wooden horse. When the task was completed teams were instructed to the Kintaro statue where they faced a Detour. The choice of tasks was between learning a prayer, performing it correctly and then standing under a waterfall for a minute or searching for a frog toy buried in a giant mud pit while locals pelted them with mud. All teams except for Ron & Christina and the Globetrotters chose the mud task. Zev and Justin were the first team to complete all the tasks and arrived at the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Costa Rica.

Russell Hantz the Third Castaway Voted Off "Survivor 22: Redemption Island"

On tonight's "Survivor: Redemption Island" veteran player Russell Hantz became the third castaway voted out and was sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with ousted castaway Matt arriving at Redemption Island and meeting his competitor Francesca. The next day, two castaways from each tribe were instructed to make their way to the Redemption Island arena to watch Matt and Francesca's duel. The challenge consisted of tying sticks together in order to make a pole to retrieve three keys. Matt was able to unlock his locks first, winning the challenge and sending Francesca home for good. Back at the Zapatera camp Russell and his gang decided to make a fake idol since they couldn't find the real one. Stephanie even carried around her bag acting like she was guarding her nonexistent idol. The other six Zapatera tribe members contemplated throwing the immunity challenge so they could get rid of Russell. The next day, the tribes met up for said Reward/Immunity challenge, which consisted of spinning three castaways on a large wheel. When each castaway was dunked in water they had to take some in their mouths and then spit it in a tube. When the tube was full a ball was released and one other castaway started solving a slide puzzle. Zapatera followed through on their plan to throw the challenge and let Ometepe win. Besides immunity Ometepe also won two chairs, two pillows, a tarp and a lantern. Boston Rob even found the clue to the hidden immunity idol in one of the chairs. Over on Zapatera, Russell knew the writing was on the wall and tried to sway Julie over to his alliance. At tribal council, Julie stuck with her original alliance and the vote ended up being a three-way tie between Russell, Stephanie and Ralph. When the tribe re-voted the alliance of six cast all their votes for Russell, making him the third person sent to Redemption Island. Next week he'll duel Matt for the right to stay in the game.
