The 28th season of the award-winning CBS reality TV show will air its eighth episode titled “Salt that Sand!” on Friday. TV Guide reports that the remaining six teams will travel all the way to Bali in Indonesia. In addition to another set of challenges and tasks, the competitors face a different kind of pit stop on this episode, which is located on a boat. Racers have to wade thru the waters and beat the others to avoid walking the plank and being eliminated.

CBS has posted sneak peeks of the ninth episode on its web site. One preview video shows the teams in another foreign country with the most exotic customs on earth, such as feasting on extremely spicy food and casually putting a huge snake around their neck. In another trailer, the competitors are shown taking a stab at a common source of livelihood in Bali: harvesting salt. In what appears to be a Roadblock, representatives from each team make their way to and from the ocean with wooden buckets weighing heavily on bamboo poles. They then splatter the collected seawater across the sand. After a few hours, flakes of salt are formed on the sand.

“The Amazing Race” Season 28 recap of Leg 8

On the eighth episode, titled “I Have a Wedgie and a Half” teams made their way to Dubai in the UAE. Upon arriving, they drove themselves to a bedouin camp outside the city in the Al Faqa Desert. There, they received the Detour clue, wherein they have to choose between Races or Oasis. Those who chose Races proceeded to Dubai Camel Race Track to race against camels using bicycles. In Oasis, on the other hand, teams were instructed to lead camels to a bedouin camp. In Oasis, teams had to lead four camels amid the scorching heat and head to a bedouin camp. There, they had to consume the traditional regag bread and camel milk to receive their next clue.

The teams then proceeded to Atlantis, The Palm waterpark where they received their Roadblock clue. The team’s representative had to wade through a tank filled with sharks, manta rays and other sea creatures to get canister. Inside the canister is a puzzle, which they had to solve to be given the next clue. Teams must then slide down a steep water slide to receive the clue for the pit stop. They then had to race all the way to the Old Souq Station, where host Phil Keoghan was waiting for them at the mat.

Pro Frisbee fellas Brodie Smith and Kurt Gibson managed to get back on top by beating the others to the mat. For being team number 1 on this leg of the race, they won a trip for two to Helsinki, Finland. Dating gamers Burnie Burns and Ashley Jenkins were in second place for the third consecutive time, followed by best friends Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl.

Here’s the rest of the "TAR" Season 28 team placement in the eighth episode: Newlyweds Zach and Rachel King; engaged choreographers Dana Borriello and Matt Steffanina; and mother and son duo Sheri and Cole LaBrant. Whilst Sheri and Cole are the last to arrive on the pit stop, they remain in the race because it was a non-elimination leg.
