Jet and Cord were left behind at first, but they checked in the last post earlier than Ron and Christina.
After a week hiatus, "The Amazing Race" returned on April 10 with the contestants continuing their journey in India. They had to depart for the Tonga Stand in Varanasi as the first challenge. Jet and Cord arrived the last because they took a flight that arrived an hour after everyone else, but they managed to complete all the tasks before Ron and Christina.
For the Road Block, the teams had to find six men to collect a piece of paper from each to create the phrase "Once your over the hill you pick up speed." Ron and Christina were already left behind in this task because Ron spent too much time in the wrong area.
The clue sent the teams to Tulsi Ghat for a Detour where they had to choose between "feed the fire" or "feed the buffalo". For Feed the Fire, the teams had to make manure patties and slap them on a wall, then boil some milk for "the local children." For Feed the Buffalo, teams would pick up a large load of hay and carry it "through the narrow streets."
Flight Time and Big Easy, who picked to carry the hay, checked in first and won a trip to Hawaii. Zev and Justin arrived second, followed by Kisha and Jen. After Gary and Mallory as well as Jet and Cord completed the task, it was a race between Kent-Vyxsin and Ron-Christina.
On their way, Kent and Vyxsin got trouble with a water taxi. After a surprising decision made by Vyxsin by jumping into the water, the twosome decided to take a land taxi. Ron and Christina, meanwhile, opted for the water taxi.
It turned out Kent and Vyxsin made a right decision as they arrived earlier than Ron and Christina although they were sopping wet. Ron and Christina were subsequently eliminated, but Ron said he did not have any regret.
