RON SHAHAR: This is the eleventh end point of HaMerotz LaMillion. At this moment, our five couples are making their way here. The couple that gets here last may find themselves out of the race. INTRO RON SHAHAR: Alon and Oren and Ossie and Carmit finished the hot chili Detour and are on their way to the next destination. ALON: You have to take a Sri Lankan tuktuk to Sunil's cow farm. OSNAT: Enter the marked gate and look for the next clue there. RON SHAHAR: Akiva and Anaelle just completed the laundry task. AKIVA: I'm done, honey. Skip RON SHAHAR: Whereas Bar and Inna and Tom and Adele decided to deviate from the normal race course to take the Fast Forward. BAR: Fast Forward, you must take a taxi to Mr. Pierce Studio. ADELE: We take the Fast Forward. TOM: It could also be a photograph, something, I don't know what it could be. ADELE: I don't care what it may be, we do it. Wow mami, all of my legs are burning. Skip ALON: War, war, war…Come on, my friend, come on. C-ALON: We left first in the Sri Lankan tuktuk. C-ALON: What is beautiful in Sri Lanka is the organized travel. C-ALON: Everything is calm, quiet, you are not allowed to honk in Colombo. Really. C-OREN: Europe. C-ALON: Classical Europe. ALON: Take me to the cow. C-ALON: There is complete chaos on the streets, as if they are talking to each other with sirens. Tuk-tuks, trucks, cars, everything, noise. C-OREN: All the time honking. C-ALON: People, almost every moment someone gets run over. ALON: Well you have to be focused, like, everyone is close. OREN: Let's tick, let's get some distance now. ALON: Let's hope there won't be a duel, Duel Akiva appears. Skip ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE AKIVA: There is a Fast Forward here, do you want to take it? ANAELLE: No. C-ANAELLE: At these stages of the game taking a Fast Forward is like a godsend. C-AKIVA: Is to arrive first. C-ANAELLE: And as if to get enough to... C-AKIVA: Guarantee your spot. C-ANAELLE: It also guarantees your place in the top four. AKIVA: You have to take a Sri Lankan tuktuk to Sunil's cow farm. C-ANAELLE: But I can't take the risk that God forbid I will have to travel, arrive and in the end it will really be something like taking a picture naked which is out of the question at all. So I have also wasted my time and in the end I will find myself out of the race. Skip OREN: Waste of water. ALON: What waste? Buy me 500 of these, everything burns for me. I'm all burned, waste of water, he still tells me. OREN: Waste of water, it won't help you. C-ALON: We are traveling in a tuktuk and our hands are burning, burning from the burning chili mission. I'm all over the place with the sirens, from behind I open the bag, pour water, "Why are you wasting water?" I had to pour out all the water. ALON: Stop! Come on, Oren. ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE ALON: Route Info. You have to take part in a natural and traditional recycling process of every Sri Lankan cow breeder, creating a flammable combustible material from cow excrement. RON SHAHAR: The dairy farmers in Sri Lanka mix the cow excrement together with water and sawdust and dry it in the sun. The resulting material aids combustion. Here they found recycling long before it reached us. The couple must now become local farmers and collect the cow excrement, the buckets they will have to carry on their heads and reach the drying area. There, according to tradition, they will have to create the organic fuel with their own hands and stick it on the drying wall. They will have to perform the task with their bare hands and flip flops on their feet in accordance with the local tradition. Only a couple who manage to make a hundred lumps of organic fuel will receive the next clue from the farm owner. ALON: How nice. Come on. OREN: Careful ALON: What does this need to tick it off? Here, come on, Oren, run, run, run. ALON: A lot of shit. C-ALON: The task is to make fifty combustion balls each. What is the fuel made of? Cow shit. ALON: Come on, luckily I know it from Eshel HaNashi. Oh, what a stinker. I worked there in a dairy farm for several years. OREN: Yeah, so it's not... ALON: But it's awful stinking shit. C-ALON; I have experience, I am not bothered by the story of the dairy farm, I studied in Eshel HaNashi with the educator Yosefah, who is a mythological figure, I hope she is still with us. ALON: It's a task for us, isn't it, Oren? OREN: Yes. ALON: Can't see from a meter. OREN: Come on, come on, come on, come on, let's see how it works, let's see how big it is first. C-OREN: You have to take this semi-liquid shit from a certain point. C-ALON: On the head, what a section, what a section it was. C-OREN: In a straw basket and take it on your head. C-ALON: What a section it was. ALON: Come on, go, go. OREN: Put here...put in my opinion... ALON: Yes, like that. OREN: Put into the mixture. ALON: Why not here? OREN: That way, you won't be able to control it. ALON: Of course I can. OREN: Look, put it up, see how beautiful it is. C-ALON: We have to make a combustible material from the shit of these cows in a combination of sawdust and water and that it will stick to the wall, fifty of them each. ALON: How is the technique? OREN: Need more sawdust, not too much. ALON: Oh, yours are falling, that's why you need a lot of water. A lot more water, cutie. Much more water. Like the meatballs you make for the kids. OREN: I don't make meatballs like that. ALON: Dipping and pasting. Wow, that's a huge amount. Skip AKIVA: I see the brothers here. OREN: Here comes another tuktuk. ALON: Yes, another tuktuk has arrived. AKIVA: Come. ANAELLE: Come on. AKIVA: Here is the box. ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE AKIVA: Route Info. ANAELLE: Lord have mercy. What a smell. C-ALON: Who enters the cowshed? C-OREN: God save and Akiva. C-ALON: And her husband, and Akiva. ANAELLE: What a terrible smell. ALON: The idiots have arrived. OREN: Who arrived? ALON: The morons, your friends. Don't talk to them, I ask you not to talk. Let them not see how we do. C-ALON: I told Oren, let's make sure they don't see our technique, I was very proud of the technique. ANAELLE: Shoshi, they are coming to me. Mother, mother! AKIVA: Don’t shout, don’t shout. ANAELLE: Lord have mercy. AKIVA: Ick, it will be on our heads. ANAELLE: God save. C-ANAELLE: The smell of cow poop. C-AKIVA: Bring fresh poop. C-ANAELLE: Hot. It was so hot. Warm and green. ANAELLE: Oh, it's crazy heavy for me, you'll help me put it on my head. Shoshi! AKIVA: Clean it a little from below with your hand. ANAELLE: Oh, it's hard for me mentally. Ick. ANAELLE: Ick! Oh, oh, oh, the cows agree with me, the cows agree with me. Shoshi, I'm shocked. AKIVA: Me too. C-ALON: The grinder arrived with all the crying and tears, I'm standing here, I'm standing here. ANAELLE: Mother, my slipper fell off. Shoshi, I’m drowning.. C-ALON: Grinder grinder but strong, strong. C-OREN: Yes, she doesn't give up. C-ALON: They come in, they are strong, they are a very, very strong couple. Shoshi. ANAELLE: Shoshi, I'm scared to death. Mother, mother, Lord have mercy! AKIVA: Shosha, this is very heavy for me. OREN: Shit to the face. ANAELLE: Ick, help me, help me. Ick. Yoo, yoo, yoo…Yoo, my husband's grief... Yoo, what is he doing to her? What is he doing? Why does he do that? It's not nice, it’s not nice. AKIVA: Shosha... ANAELLE: That's not nice! AKIVA: Shosha, he sleeps with her. ANAELLE: What does it interest me? AKIVA: They make children. C-ANAELLE: There was a bull. Now he was very big, suddenly I see him getting on cows. Now I say to Akiva, may God have mercy, it looked like he was going to hurt them, do something to them, I don't know what. ANAELLE: Mother, mother, how cruel he is, it's not nice, I'm not happy. C-ANAELLE: Then Akiva explained to me that they... C-AKIVA: Mating. C-ANAELLE: They are now mating. But the thing is, I don't have a problem with you mating but not with such a small cow. ANAELLE: That's not nice. AKIVA: What farm did they bring us to, what is this thing? Skip OSNAT: You have to take a Sri Lankan tuktuk to Sunil's cow farm. Skip OSNAT: Well, go ask. CARMIT: I don't know, Ossie. OSNAT: In English, there.. CARMIT: Ask. OSNAT: I know, as if I lived here from birth... CARMIT: You had the clue, you know. OSNAT: It's there. So ask here in the meantime. CARMIT: Where is it there? I'll ask. OSNAT: With this, with this. CARMIT: I don't have glasses, I can't see anything. C-CARMIT: We left for the next task, to the cow poop, the driver didn't know the way, he didn't really understand what we were asking him. Skip OSNAT: It's facing each other, but it should be facing each other, yes. Skip CARMIT: We thought they didn't know these morons. BAR: Fast Forward. You have to travel in a taxi to Mr. Pierce Studio and find the next clue there. BAR: Mother, what pressure, Inna. I don't want to sound petty, I am aware that the Fast Forward is the thing. INNA: On the other hand, let's see if it will be within my and your limits. ADELE: If you succeed you can advance directly to the end point. If not, you must return to the race and complete all the missions. C-TOM: We actually realized that our situation was not good at all, we had the option of getting a Fast Forward. ADELE: My whole body hurts a lot, my whole body hurts a lot. C-ADELE: And I'm in critical condition, I'm in a bad condition, I'm in a condition where I don't know if I'll finish this day, I don't know what will happen to me later this day with this allergic reaction, I didn't know what would happen, I suffered. I didn't understand at all what the Fast Forward was, what needed to be done, I just said, let's do it please and that's it. BAR: At this level right now in the game, in the final five, it's going to be something like it's going to cancel your 30 minute wait, it means something like it's going to be... very, very, very difficult, like there are no free gifts. INNA: It's not free. Skip BAR: What do you think it will be? INNA: I have no idea, Bar, I can't do it... I have no clue. C-BAR: The most horrifying thing that occurred to me is that if I and Inna choose to escape and not take the Fast Forward in the end, we have a long day ahead of us and we have lost precious time that we will not get back, which means... C-INNA: Little chance. C-BAR: How weak, on the level of like a miracle from heaven has to happen so that we don't go home. BAR: I'm trying to think of what it could be. INNA: There is a situation where we have like stamped ourselves out of the race, right now. BAR: What will they give now? Skip TOM: Look for 27. INNA: Bar, look, it seems to me that... BAR: Shit, oh no. INNA: What? BAR: It looks like a barbershop, Inna. INNA: Hear me Israel, keep me, keep me and Bar from this trouble we have put ourselves into. BAR: Russian roulette. Okay. Fine. INNA: Wow. C-BAR: My heart is like...pressure, crazy pressure because I told myself, if this is a task I will not be ready to do, not for the race, not for myself, not for anything in the world…. C-INNA: We held ourselves back. C-BAR: We are going home today. INNA: Come on, Bar, let's take the hint, we're procrastinating. TOM: Here, here, go, go, go. ADELE: Yoo, listen mami, I think there's a couple here. C-INNA: We knew that our chances were fifty-fifty, that is, a Fast Forward could save us but it could also crush us. BAR: Fast Forward. INNA: Wow. BAR: This Fast Forward- TOM: This Fast Forward will present you with a difficult decision- BAR: May it remain on your body forever. RON SHAHAR: The couple must now make a difficult decision that will accompany them for the rest of their lives. Each of them must tattoo half a heart on their arm, one that will match exactly the tattoo that the other partner will make. The tattoo will be permanent and cannot be erased. If they regret and do not complete the task in its entirety, the couple will return to the normal course of the race. Only after the tattoo artist finishes his work will the couple receive the next clue. TOM: Okay, we'd rather not do that. Let's go, come on. ADELE: Why not? TOM: Tell me, what did you screw up? ADELE: It's a small tattoo. TOM: I will never get a tattoo in my life. BAR: Inna, listen. INNA: Bar, you could walk around with that stupid thing for the rest of your life. And the million is still not in your hands. ADELE: It's not "we” don't prefer, I would do it without a problem. TOM: I grew up in a traditional home, an extreme home, my father is firmly against it, my family comes first, I know they won't be able to look at me afterwards. ADELE: He wants to fly home today, alright. I'm all suffering from the spicy and that's what he tells me. TOM: Even if there were no people here I wouldn't do it at all. ADELE: Fine, now Inna and Bar will arrive first and we will arrive last. INNA: Look at you being tattooed all over you now. TOM: Would you get a real tattoo now? ADELE: Yes, I would. I'm thinking about the final four. TOM: For the game a real tattoo? ADELE: Yes, for the game I would. TOM: You have no respect for your body. You have no respect. BAR: It's not an easy decision for me either, do you think I want to do it? INNA: I do not think... BAR: I need half a heart, what am I, some kind of pirate in...I know what? INNA: More on the arm, no less and no more, it's like... BAR: Like the most... INNA: The old man. C-BAR: The task is to tattoo half a heart on me, half a heart on Inna, none other than the arm area. A tattoo of lewdness, it's a tattoo that people do when they're drunk. TOM: Wait, so we have to take Sri Lankan tuktuks to the cow farm. Skip ADELE: Ow, ow, ow, it hurts, it burns. TOM: I'm hurting too, I'm having a hard time too, believe me. ADELE: Enough, leave me alone. My hand hurts. TOM: I'm all burnt too. ADELE: I don't feel like it anymore, leave me, because of you we are losing now. TOM: I know, it's because of me, mami, I know I'm guilty, I'm sorry. C-TOM: We wasted a lot of time on the Fast Forward until... C-ADELE: And my hands are burning, remember me every time what happened to me. C-TOM: I will remember, Mami, I will remember. C-ADELE: So that you understand how much we suffered. C-TOM: The expressiveness of Hebrew is phenomenal and I know how to talk about everything in the most logical and most beautiful way possible, so relax. ADELE: Ai, my eyes now, well. TOM: Okay, we need…You don't have the clue, my mami. ADELE: The address is written there! ADELE: It got into my eyes, I can't open my eyes. TOM; Where? ADELE: I can't open my eyes. C-TOM; The mental feelings are that you are last and Adele was hurt on levels and her hands were burned there and it was beyond a normal human being, she took it way beyond any human being who had spicy. Because actually I also had a very spicy one. C-ADELE: I just had a very, very severe allergic reaction. ADELE: I can't open my eye. No, your shirt is full of it. BAR: This is something extreme. C-BAR: We know very well that in life...there are no shortcuts. C-INNA: Shortcuts. (In HaMerotz the Fast Forward is called the Shortcut… which it should’ve been all along in the US version to keep with the road journey theme naming) BAR: I'm ready to do it for fun and I'm happy to do it. C-BAR: Our desire to do the task was not for HaMerotz LaMillion. C-INNA: And not for the million. C-BAR: And not for the final five and not for the final three and not for first place. C-INNA: But for taking revenge on this gang. BAR: After all the evictions, after all the horseshoe turns. C-INNA: We really suffered for a long time, one could say relatively, from these U-Turns. BEIJING BANGKOK PATTAYA C-BAR: This is a war of attrition, once hit, they don't fall. Second time hit, they didn't fall. Third time hit, they will fall, they will surely fall. Not me and not Inna either. C-INNA: Don't kick so easily. BAR: Look what the level of revenge is like, the fact that they won't send us home today. Skip C-BAR: In no way will I let any human being but no human being do to me, neither ganging up nor character assassination nor intimidation nor condescension over me, it doesn't happen. I couldn't let this war of attrition in amok rabok happen. INNA: We are in the finals. Something else, Bar, we have to eat them. BAR: In the teeth, you’ve gone too far. INNA: Like this. BAR: In your teeth, like you did the laundry today. INNA: Like matches they fly. C-BAR: A couple that really, really wronged us here is the Yemenis, if there is one couple that went, gossiped, dirtied, opened up, the officer, lied, said, called me and Inna names, it is the Yemenis. OSNAT: Your grandmother… OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN THIRD PLACE C-INNA: They actually provoked all this antagonism. C-BAR: Obviously. C-INNA: From the beginning, the antagonism to our direction. Of course not on the personal side and of course don't take it personally and it is clear to us that from there it drifted and opened some kind of current in our direction that they constantly knew how to maintain. OSNAT: Wow, my hand hurts. My hand hurts. CARMIT: But why are you shouting? OSNAT: Pick up with only one hand, only with one hand. C-INNA: All the nicknames we get from them, mice, blondes, Paris and Hilton. C-BAR: Paris, no, let's also be, like let's be really idiotic until the end, Paris and Hilton like, it's the same girl, first and last name, let's call them by that name, genius, like really. CARMIT: I will not fall with this pot. Drilled my head. My kids won't want to eat out of my hands for a month now, ah, Ossie? C-INNA: Like they have been with us on this journey for so long, is it hard for you to call us Inna and Bar? There is some disdain from the beginning, here are the blondes, we keep hearing them, "Here are the blondes, how did they get here?" INNA: It doesn't hurt but let's just say it doesn't... BAR: Not pleasant. INNA: No less and no more, it is also painted reddish-coloured. BAR: A beaten girl in a central station in Tel Aviv who went out to look for friends with my new tattoos. Wow, this is one of the ugliest tattoos in the entire world. INNA: Come on, Bar. C-ALON: We ticked it off, we made balls, we realized very quickly that this is the technique. OREN: One two...one two three... ALON: Quiet. C-ALON: We hit ball no.50 each. OREN: I'm done. ALON: Come on. OREN: Look what we look like. ALON: Come on, the clue. Skip ALON: Come on, go, go, go. ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE ALON: Route Info. You have to take a bus to King’s Mother Viharamahadevi Park. RON SHAHAR: The couples should board the local bus now, and make their way to the King’s Mother’s Park in Colombo. The park is next to the local post office. When they reach it, the next clue will be waiting for them. Skip ANAELLE: Shoshi, in your mother, you can't kick me on this. AKIVA: In my mother? In my mother? My mother will not be happy that you are now involving her in this situation. ANAELLE: I really love her though. AKIVA: I know. Skip ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE AKIVA: Route Info. You have to take a bus to King’s Mother Viharamahadevi Park. Skip ANAELLE: Wow, Akiva, I can't touch myself. AKIVA: Poor you. Skip ALON: Yoo, my brother, look how crazy. ALON: Come on. What a bus, what is local. Crazy, crazy, but the bus. OREN: It's an experience to travel on the local bus, with the music and such, what sections. C-ALON: For the first time we are told to take a local bus. OREN: Enough, enough. ALON: We are not the Yemenis. OREN: A bit of culture. C-ALON: What music, noise of Indian music. C-OREN: And the bus is decorated like I don't know what on the inside. Pictures. C-ALON: Pictures and colourful, crazy, crazy, crazy. Skip C-ALON: How did they do? Skip ANAELLE: Akiva, the bus, pay him fast. AKIVA: How impudent, he tells me 4000 each. I gave him 500 at the end. ALON: How much did you pay for the tuktuk, 400? OREN: 1500 each. ALON: Really? OREN: That's what he asked for. ALON: What, really? OREN: Yes. ALON: Are you kidding me OREN: No. ALON: Yoo, are you screwed? I paid for a whole day in an attached car with air conditioning. OREN: The tuktuk is more expensive. ALON: What more expensive. 4000, 50 dollars for a tuktuk? OREN: You fill me with your saliva. ALON: Yoo, yoo, yoo, what a mistake. ADELE: How did we get from first to last, you see? TOM: Everything is good in this game, everything can change. ADELE: How, there's only one mission left. TOM: Faith, faith, faith. C-TOM: I knew that if I followed the way of the Holy One, blessed be He, which is against tattoos, actually glorifying His name in front of all the people of Israel, I believe in Him and He is with me and maybe He will really let me continue in the game. TOM: Yelling at each other and fighting will not work for us. ADELE: I'm not yelling at you, what do you want from me? TOM: You told me everything because of you because I don't do a real tattoo. ADELE: Fine, we're going home. TOM: But we only need to think about what we are doing now that is best so as not to go home. And if we do go, we will know that we did our best. ADELE: It burns me. I'd rather die than be like this. You don't understand how it burns. COMING UP NEXT… ALON: Okay, perfect it’s here. OREN: Thank you. ALON: Let's cross the road. OREN: Let's cross, let's cross. ALON: Watch out. Look where you are going. Here, here. Skip UNAIRED TASK ALERT Clearly editors expected the Israeli viewers to be completely and utterly blind to their surroundings because they didn’t do a very good job of hiding this one. Basically, upon arriving at the park, one team member had to verbally describe the Sri Lankan flag from a copy they were provided to their partner, who would have to draw it accurately enough to get a pass - a bit like the team-building exercise from TAR China Rush 1 Leg 5 Beijing. While I do regret this loss as it is the only true HaMerotz unique quirky unconventional task this leg, I trust the editors’ judgment that what with all the outside-task drama going on this leg this one was boring and uneventful enough so as to be surplus to requirements. ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE ALON: Roadblock. Who reads between the lines? OREN: I will do the Roadblock mission. ALON: Because I have none left, simple. RON SHAHAR: A Roadblock task is a task that only one of the partners can perform. The team members must divide the Roadblock tasks equally between them throughout the entire race. In this Roadblock task, the partner must search among 7000 envelopes at the local post office in Colombo for one envelope intended only for them and inside it a message from home. One of the members will receive a bag of postal items in which five letters intended for couples are hidden. The team member must find the letter that belongs only to his pair. In addition to the letter, they will receive an object sent to them from the country by their loved ones. The couples will be able to watch their favorite people read the letter to them, using their tablet devices. Only after they locate the letter intended for them among 7000 letters will the local official give them the package from home and the next clue. OREN: The spouse who performs the task must sort through 7000 envelopes and find among them one envelope intended only for you and containing a special message from home. ALON: They say home you fall apart, what a transvestite. C-ALON: He only sees the word home, he only sees the word home, suffocates. ALON: Come on! OREN: I can't read, I'm excited. ALON: So I will read. They say home, he’s like… C-ALON: The sensitive, the empathetic, like the most not, the coldest, just seeing you...bro, you really become sensitive. C-OREN: Personalityless rag, maybe I'll become a community member. C-ALON: Really, welcome to the community. ALON: Come on. OREN: Come on. C-ALON: I reset him, I told him, come on come on, there is still a lot of work until you see the letter from home. Skip ANAELLE: Come on. Skip ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE AKIVA: Roadblock. ANAELLE: Lord have mercy. AKIVA: Who reads between the lines? You do it. Sort through 7000 envelopes and find among them one envelope that is known only to you and contains a special message from home. Do you miss home? I know how much you cry to me at night. ANAELLE: I am very pleased. Let's go. AKIVA: Well, listen, the letter can be addressed either in English or in the local language as well. ALON: Here, I see…Go. Be careful, be careful. Here, here, here. OREN: Here is the flag of the race. ALON: Okay. OREN: Come on, Alon. ALON: Come on. C-ALON: Sri Lanka's main post office, one of the most advanced in the world for me. It doesn't work when scanning the... C-OREN: It's artificial intelligence, when you send the letter it knows where you want to send it. C-ALON: Stunning. C-OREN: No need to write an address. C-ALON: The whole building, a 15-story building, maybe three employees, almost no employees. C-OREN: Completely drained. C-ALON: Really. C-OREN: 1948 is progressive what was there. C-ALON: It was a building, its interior also had something terribly authentic about it. Those fans, the sacks, the trolleys… C-OREN: People are standing and... C-ALON: Devices seem to pass like this, making noise, the noise of machines that counts. C-ALON: The victims arrived at the task, all the workers, 250 in number, stand around and what do they do with their heads? C-OREN: Confirm, yes, no, unclear. ANAELLE: Here, come in, come in. AKIVA: Here is the entrance. Well done, here we are. ANAELLE: How cool. Skip ANAELLE: Come. AKIVA: Pick a pile, shall I? ANAELLE: Yes. AKIVA: All those that are closed from the sides, it cannot be. ALON: What is not in English you throw here? OREN: No, what is in English I throw here. ALON: Wow, what a load of mail. C-OREN: The task is to sort about 7000 individual mails, of which there should be a letter addressed to me and Alon either in the local language or in English. AKIVA: Make a pile of what you didn't go through and what you did go through. Do it in order. C-ANAELLE: I knew it was a letter so I said, a letter only to me, a letter only to Akiva, a letter to us, who will write, what will be written, I know that my mother does not write in Hebrew, she writes in French. OREN: Do you think it's worth giving up all those official envelopes? ALON: No, what the hell, what are you thinking about? He's already giving up, he hasn't started yet. C-OREN: I start to sort through the letters, I see that there are a lot of letters in English, a lot of technical letters, I mean letters from banks, standard letters like that, advertising. ALON: What a quantity, here are all the oranges, there are a lot of oranges there. Yellows you have there, exactly, green you know where. C-OREN: Every letter I go through, I sort it into categories. ALON: Well good, it's good that you do such a sorting. You work much neater, she just digs there. AKIVA: The brothers are doing too thorough a job as usual. They can get stuck here for hours on something like this. C-ALON: As far as I'm concerned, such a task you can also get stuck in it. As if you could be there for a few hours. ALON: Thorough, Oren, let's not do it twice. C-TOM: It got to the point where she was really screaming and it made it difficult to breathe and...she couldn't breathe. TOM: Enough, my life, enough. Put it in the wind. C-TOM: She's done like that and all day this pressure and all the crap we know we're last. TOM: Fight, be patient, there is nothing to do, we are at war. Skip CARMIT: Hello, calm down. C-OSNAT: I'm one-handed, it's quite difficult. C-CARMIT: Of course, to each their own. C-OSNAT: Yes, and mixing with one hand is not easy. Skip TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE TOM: You must take part in the natural and traditional recycling process of every fruit breeder. ADELE: Cows. (Tom mispronounced) TOM: Sri Lankan cows. Skip TOM: He won't touch you, she won't touch, Mmami, give me a hand. Not knowing impurity. ADELE: My hands, my hands. Woe is me. TOM: Okay, come on, come on, my life. ADELE: My hands. TOM: We’re finished, my life, we’re finished. There are too many flies here that stick to my body which is more disgusting. Skip ADELE: Ick, my hands. No, no, no, what now is he bringing them to us? TOM: Come here, come here. ADELE: Ick. TOM: Come, my life, come, come, my life. C-TOM: The mission was basically to go to all the waste. C-ADELE: Waste? C-TOM: To all the cow shit. C-ADELE: Okay. C-TOM: Load them into... C-ADELE: Real shit. Skip TOM: Yours fell, pay attention, mami. ADELE: You put it in water and then you put it in that and it sticks, okay? Then it comes out a circle that sticks. You see? I stick it. TOM: Ick! C-TOM: You basically start getting into the cows’ shit, put these crumbs on the shit and stick it. And 50 of these each, which is actually as sexy as it sounds, 100 balls of shit. Skip OSNAT: I'm with the hand, that's my problem. CARMIT: I'm with a hand, there's nothing else to do, suffer a little. TOM: Don't break now, my life, you're doing it. ADELE: I'm in pain. TOM: You have nothing left, what do you have left? Nothing. Come on, mami, come on. Don’t give up. Icks. What a crappy task. But it's worth it. I will never get a real tattoo, the honor of my father and my family comes first. INNA: Aren't you afraid? To hug me? BAR: No, what hug me? Wow, that hurts. Wow. C-BAR: Me, a very non-vengeful person by nature, it made me feel some kind of vibe throughout my body, I said, oh, finally the chance to take revenge. Shortens the way for us to fly to the finish point and arrive first. INNA: Wow, Bar. BAR: What mami? Yes, a bad tattoo, well. It happens. Inna, it's a tattoo, one of the ugliest in the universe, but it's like an ugly child who is yours, you don't say he's ugly, you love him. I'm passing out. Skip INNA: Come on, are you coming? BAR: Yes. INNA: Shall we get together? BAR: Let's see what it looks like, bat mitzvah. Come on, bat mitzvah. C-INNA: It's most also like that, I'll curl your hair. C-BAR: And I will say, wow... C-INNA: Me and Bar. C-BAR: Yoo, Inna, what fun, we have a new tattoo, hearts. C-INNA: Cypress, follow after me. C-BAR: Yoo, in bat mitzvah? We are one big whole heart now. Wow, what fun we have. C-INNA: Calm down, it might be too believable. Skip BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE INNA: Come on. BAR: Route Info. Congratulations on achieving the Fast Forward. You have to take a taxi to the Sri Lankan Independence Square. It is also the eleventh finish point of the race. RON SHAHAR: The couples must now arrive at Sri Lanka's Independence Square located in the center of Colombo. For the Sri Lankans, this square symbolizes their independence, which was achieved in 1948, just like Israel’s, and since then it has been used by them for religious and national events. This place is also the eleventh finish point of HaMerotz LaMillion. The pair that gets here last may find themselves out of the race. BAR: They failed to send us home. INNA: Come on. BAR: My soul. C-INNA: They really tried to cut us down and we got up by force, like nonetheless. BAR: Great. C-BAR: It was at a level I couldn't let them beat us. C-INNA: No. Couldn’t. C-BAR: Against all odds. C-INNA: All chances. C-BAR: In the teeth, in the teeth. Like real cockroaches, we came out of the burrows and it was impossible to kill us. INNA: I hope this doesn't sound too fanatical and extreme but yes, it kind of tramples you. And you for a very long time. BAR: Went too far, it's kind of trampling you. INNA: And every time we seem to succeed, you know, in turning it around on them. BAR: Stunning. TOM: This is the last. That’s it, I finished. Skip TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE ADELE: I can’t. TOM: What, my life? Let's just finish the... let's just read it. ADELE: I can't get them out of the water. TOM: I know, but let's just get it over with and buy you ice. C-ADELE: After the cow poo it must have worsened my allergic condition and I couldn't breathe. OSNAT: Come on, fast, fast. ADELE: I can not. TOM: We're wasting our time, the two of them are lingering here. We don't want to fly today. ADELE: Mami, it's like my hands are on fire. TOM: Tuktuk, tuktuk, wait. ADELE: I can’t, mami. TOM: But what can't you do? But what can you do here? CARMIT: There's too much crap here. TOM: We are in a good place, we are advancing to the final, we are advancing. A real heroine, a heroine, you don't understand what an 18-year-old girl is now managing, you're just a hero. ADELE: Mami, enough, you don't understand it's not related, I can't go on. TOM: I know, now we'll stop, we'll stop, we'll buy aloe vera somewhere, just look now, it will take time for the Yemenites, it's our time to open the gap. You see, we were already in the dead, we already thought we were going home, we came back from the dead, my life, the Holy One, blessed be He, saw that I wasn't getting a real tattoo, he was impressed. Skip OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE OSNAT: You have to take a bus to King’s Mother Viharamahadevi Park. Skip TOM: You are a hero, there is nothing like you. ADELE: Enough, mami, I can't move my hands. TOM: Just do it on the way, it’s a waste of our time. OSNAT: Bus. CARMIT: Now to the bus. Yes. Leave us on the bus, what are you, stupid? TOM: Take it, do it like this. Come a second, bring your hands, let them be like this. I'm going crazy, what can't you do? It's been two hours already. ADELE: No, it hurts more. TOM: Your hands will fall apart already. TOM: Let's go, we'll get you ice. Skip ADELE: Mami, where is the money? There is ice cream here. TOM: What ice cream now? What ice cream? Skip TOM: Killed me, hurt me, killed me, brother, killed, ended my life. You know what, I'm alone in the battle, alone. I promised you I'd buy you ice, why are you doing this? Why are you delaying us? ADELE: Did you promise? TOM: Half an hour has now passed here, half an hour. AKIVA: Listen a moment. ANAELLE: What? AKIVA: It can take hours. Put all the envelopes from companies aside. C-ANAELLE: Even though it's just a letter, we knew for us it was the most important treasure for us right now in the race, we don't know what's waiting for us inside, we have no idea, but the anticipation of receiving a message from home allowed me to be very focused on the task. AKIVA: Excellent. C-ANAELLE: Then I found the envelope with the name of the brothers and it was written in English. I don't know what’s wrong with me, I have some kind of thing where I find lots and lots of things, everyone's, but I can't find my own. AKIVA: You know how it looks now, nice. ANAELLE: Yes. C-ANAELLE: It's good, because it means I already knew what I needed to look for, I figured it out pretty quickly. AKIVA: Don't shout it, so they don't see the colour of the envelope. That they won't see, that they won't notice because then they'll know what to look for. Our advantage is that we know what we are looking for, so come on. ALON: Here, look how he digs, looking for a different envelope. C-ALON: The great advantage of Akiva and the Creator of the world, C-OREN: That they are also motivated. C-ALON: They think. Motivated, don't see from a meter, want to take the million, declare it. AKIVA: Shosha, they are searching in the wrong language at all. ALON: Start as if creating a height from one side, check what is at the bottom. C-OREN: Then Alon says, take out from below as well, don't just take out from above. C-ALON: Look for a different envelope. C-OREN: A changed envelope. ALON: Dig, dig into this one. Look for something unusual. AKIVA: I smell it. OREN: There should be at least five of them. ALON: Yes, exactly. AKIVA: If you find it, don't jump, that they won't see what we're looking for. OREN: Think what you would do, how you would do it. ALON: Find something unusual, five or six unusual envelopes. AKIVA: I don't see in my eye, I don't see anyone in my eye, certainly not the one who hurt us so much. Come on, my wife is a champion, I have a champion wife, she is a champion. OREN: Here, I found it, come, Alon. ALON: You found? Yes. ALON: Let them not see, let them not see, let them not see. AKIVA: He found, Shosha. ALON: My brother, die for you. OREN: Come on, come on. AKIVA: How can it be that we found everyone's but ours? ALON: Here, Oren, is the letter from home. Skip OREN: I don’t hear anything. You hear? I can't hear but that's my daughter. ALON: Wait, wait... calm down a second, since you told me... To dad. To the perfect father in the world. Ever since you told me you were in the race for a million, I knew you would surely win. If you come last then don't worry, for me you are always first. We miss you very much, in short, we love you. C-OREN: They are twins and in fact no one knows they are twins because they are both very, very different in nature. Yuvi is more of an inward type and Romi, she is an outward type. C-ALON: It is not clear how it is from the same production house, just like me and Oren, the same production house and such differences. ALON: The sky’s the limit. Is this a sentence he wrote at the age of 18? 1987, the sky's the limit. C-OREN: What really moved me, Michal sent me messages, something I didn't remember having at all, some sentence that hung over my bed for years, as a young man. C-ALON: The sky is the limit, actually this is one of my childhood memories with Oren, as a child, I don't have too many childhood memories, one of them is this sentence that hangs in your room, in Tel Aviv I remember. OREN: May 1987 Masarik, Tel Aviv. First time in your apartment, a special, organized and aesthetic apartment. Above your bed hangs this simple note, the sky is the limit. That's it...I realized I'm in love. So many years later, there is still nothing like this sentence to describe you and nothing like this special situation that suits you and your agenda. C-OREN: I don't know where Michal got it and all kinds of memorabilia from our past that really moved me, because there is no, the relationship between me and Michal is an amazing relationship, 24 years of acquaintance, it...makes it, of friendship and love and passion and everything that can be between a wonderful relationship between spouses. AKIVA: Anaellosh, you have good eyes, like your mother used to ask you to find things for her. C-ANAELLE: Thank God, we found the letter. AKIVA: Champion. ANAELLE: This is for me? C-ANAELLE: I walk like this, hugging it tightly and I'm already waiting to see what this and that thing is. AKIVA: xcited? ANAELLE: Yes. C-ANAELLE: It was excitement, I felt as if I was walking with some... now with a million shekels. ANAELLE: To Shoshi and Shosha. I want to encourage you with a few words. Anaelle, remember that right before the wedding... C-ANAELLE: And then we opened it and it was so exciting. First of all everyone received a letter. ANAELLE: Anaelle… C-ANAELLE: My mother wrote me the letter and the letter she wrote me really moved me. ANAELLE: You should know that I am very proud of you for choosing to travel despite the difficulties. Kisses, watchful mother. C-ANAELLE: And everyone also received some kind of gift that reminds them of them, that will accompany him and help the game continue. AKIVA: Your mom knows you, huh? What is this, earth from Israel? ANAELLE: Yes. C-ANAELLE: And I see that they sent me first of all earth from the Land of Israel and in the race of all this disconnection and all these countries that you pass through so much, you feel so much this point of light that this is your land, that this is your place, that this is your belonging, that people can walk around the world for days, years, but they know that there is the Land of Israel, they can return whenever they want. And this earth, that's exactly how it felt to me, I mean it doesn't matter that I feel the most insecure in the world and that I go through the most difficult moments and I go through very frustrating moments sometimes, I have my place, that this is my country, that this is my home, that this is my first mother. AKIVA: Wow, where did they get that picture? I'm here in the middle, this whole unending convoy is soldiers who followed me in Lebanon. Goes in his own way, Akiva, in spite of the size of the Creator. For the problem when it arrives, know that this is only the beginning. Anaelle has joined you from heaven, together with you for life and even if there is a stumbling block in your path, God will help you from above. AKIVA: We miss you very much, father, mother, brothers and sisters and everyone else who does not understand where you have disappeared to. OREN: Listen, listen, it's mom. First of all I want to tell you that Gideon was not satisfied with the letter because it is too foreign. So he wrote another letter. ALON: Come on, Poland. Life is not simple, quotes, circles, circles of crises. But somehow we come out of them strengthened. Proud of you as IDF officers, Dad's room is full of certificates of appreciation and distinction. ALON: Father is also an officer in the IDF. Father is also an officer in the IDF. C-ALON: She maintained statecraft, it was important for her to bring in combative, academic, intelligent sons. ALON: And as a holocaust survivor. And I, as a Holocaust survivor, am proud of the three of you. C-ALON: She pushed her Holocaust survivor. C-OREN: I am a lawyer. C-ALON: Lawyer, CEO. Salt of the earth. Skip ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE ALON: Route Info, you have to take a taxi to Sri Lanka's Independence Square, this is also the eleventh finish point of the race. Skip ALON: Come on, endpoint eleven, onwards, onwards. Skip ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN THIRD PLACE AKIVA: Route Info. You have to take a taxi to Sri Lanka's Independence Square. ANAELLE: Wow, Shoshi, do you believe that we might reach the final four? AKIVA: We reach the final four. ALON: Come on, get in, Oren. COMING UP NEXT… BAR: Very fast, okay? INNA: The feeling of getting a tattoo, I'd give up the pleasure, Barbie, but then again, symbolically it's... BAR: Symbolically, this is what changes here. INNA: This is amazing. BAR: This is our victory against this vain hatred. And that signifies that to me. C-BAR: I personally don't regret it, it's something I'll always remember, it's something we got out of the flow to do together, it was funny, and if I did not get this tattoo with Inna then with whom? It's like one of the... one of the more... crazy things we got to do together. INNA: Here. Skip BAR: Come. Wow. INNA: Wow, how beautiful. BAR: Come, come, come. Come, run. C-BAR: The eleventh finish point of the race which is overwhelming, eleventh, it's like...okay. C-INNA: One step before the final. One. C-BAR: A step and a half. Welcome to Sri Lanka. Skip RON SHAHAR: Bar and Inna. At the previous end point I told you that when you reach the current end point you will have to wait half an hour before I can receive you. The only thing that can prevent that from happening is if you finish in first place. BAR: Remember, Ron, remember. RON SHAHAR: Bar and Inna. You are the couple who arrived first. BAR AND INNA, FIRST PLACE BAR: My beautiful rat. INNA: Be careful with the tattoo. BAR: Congratulations. Watch out for mine. Congratulations, my soul. RON SHAHAR: What do you have on your arm? INNA: I and Bar…we decided to unite each other, with each other symbolically. BAR: It was an act of union, association. I am proud, I did not believe that the race would bring me to do such things, in life, like there was no way. C-BAR: We came from the lowest place, the most scared, the most unsuccessful and we couldn't believe it, every time we survived last place, last place... and slowly, slowly, quietly, without anyone noticing, not even us, we started climbing to higher places. BAR: This is our war, we are here and we want to stay and we survive. RON SHAHAR: Bar and Inna. Because you came in first place, you win a pampering and relaxing prize, a pampering holiday in the country courtesy of SPONSOR BAR: Thank you very much. C-INNA: It was a very satisfying end point, more so than usual. C-BAR: Very. I don't regret... even one hundredth, one iota of what happened here, I wouldn't move it a centimetre to the right or to the left. I wouldn't change anything. OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE OSNAT: Roadblock. Well, Carmit, are you doing? Come on. CARMIT: I will do the Roadblock. Skip (Post office?) TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE TOM: Roadblock. ADELE: Come on, Mami, take it out, take it out, come on. TOM: Adele does it. Skip OSNAT: Here, we’ve arrived at the post office. Skip OSNAT: How much did he say, 200 meters? C-CARMIT: We followed what people said, we are not Sri Lankan, we are here and when you are told 200 meters you understand that it is just a few steps, then here. Skip C-CARMIT: We walked a lot, we didn't walk 200 meters. We're just soaking up the heat, and I said to you, Ossie, already nervous. C-OSNAT: You said to me? C-CARMIT: We would take a bus. And you keep walking. You say, but they told you just 200 meters. CARMIT: A kilometer to go. C-CARMIT: Also the heat, not drinking, walk so much, 200 more 200, 200 another 200, we reached a kilometer. C-OSNAT: So am I to blame? C-CARMIT: But if... C-OSNAT: What, was it easy for me to walk all this way? C-CARMIT: No, but if you were to say, you know what, you're right, let's stop. What is this- C-CARMIT: As far as you were concerned, you weren't vigilant enough and I was already in my crisis. C-OSNAT: I wasn't vigilant? The one you asked the man, sorry, hey, until here. I don't know how to speak English, you went, you asked the man. C-CARMIT: But you would say, Carmit, you know what, let's take a bus. But you keep going. C-OSNAT: What, do I know Sri Lanka? Do I know where the post office is? TOM: Go, go, run, run. Run, run, run, get in, get in. ADELE: Mami, I won't make it through this trip. Skip ADELE: Twenty minutes, are you sure? TOM: It will also do you good now, seeing a message from home. Grandma must have written you a letter now. Be thankful that this is what your Roadblock is, I was afraid of much worse. C-ADELE: We entered the bus and in a hot bus. ADELE: Oh, mami...I just can't, my life, it's not my fault. C-ADELE: And your hands are burning even more and my hands are burning it’s just unbelievable. ADELE: I can't, Mami. TOM: My life, nothing will happen to you. Don't you see it's the same hour? Nothing will happen to you, nothing will happen to you, you just have to endure it. C-ADELE: I couldn't, I went crazy there and I suffocated, my throat, I can't breathe. And really, it wasn't...it was really real, it was painful. C-TOM: That trip is perhaps the hardest part of the program. ADELE: I want to get out, I want to get out of here, I can't anymore, enough, enough, enough… C-TOM: And she wants every second to get off the bus as if I know where I am, as if it will help her if I get out, I don't know what she wants. TOM: Look where we are, we're in the middle of nowhere. ADELE: I don't know, I don't care. TOM: What’s wrong with you? Relax, relax, everything is fine. ADELE: I can not. C-TOM: I have to get off the bus, she says and God forbid, you already think she's going to die. ADELE: Mami, what are we doing? TOM: Come on, mami, come on. Skip TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE ADELE: But what does it mean to sort, Mami? Like all the girlfriends to this? TOM: Probably, yes, my life. We have time, the Yemenis haven't arrived yet, everything is fine. Skip (central) C-CARMIT: When we got to the post office, that was it, how do you say it? My strength is gone. CARMIT: In a minute we'll pass out, and we won't see the letters either. OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE TOM; The Yemenis are coming, Mami, the Yemenis are coming. C-CARMIT: When we arrived we saw Tom and Adele, I saw carts there, just a pile, half a mountain you could call it. TOM: They will find it in a second. Come on...come on, my life, the Yemenites are good at counting. CARMIT: These cannot be. My head already hurts, believe me. C-CARMIT: 7000 letters in a box, after all this heat without drinking, without anything. CARMIT: Wow, my head hurts, I can't, I'm dizzy. TOM: Come on, winner. This just has the purpose of exhausting you, it won't exhaust you. ADELE: With what is currently going through my hands, everything is exhausting me. CARMIT: I have to rest a bit, I can't. I also have stabbing pains in my stomach and dizziness. TOM: It's us or them. ADELE: Leave me, Tom! My hands hurt, leave me alone. SPONSOR BREAK C-OREN: If we could choose the couples that will be in the final, it would be us, Inna and Bar, and Tom and Adele, of course we would be happy if Akiva and Anaelle are not in the final because they are a strong couple, they are really a threatening couple. AKIVA: Quick, quick, we can overtake the brothers. C-ANAELLE: The brothers, as far as we are concerned, until now we have not changed our opinion, they are strong if not the strongest, they really are, they are on the hill. It's like we really have to trust that they will have some kind of point, that they will have some small screw-up for us to move forward. Skip ALON: Careful, careful, we have 15 minutes, mostly, mostly, my friend. It's better if he arrives in ten minutes and we’ll live. I am convinced that if you take this picture with you, many soldiers will march and lead after you. ANAELLE: You are a cannon. ALON: Both are in combat units. OREN: Yes. ALON; And she is a Holocaust survivor and father is an officer, pushing all the... OREN: The whole story. ALON: All the stories wherever she can. OREN: This is the best and... ALON: This is the outstanding and the stories. It is her pride. OREN: Alright. ANAELLE: Here, it’s here. ALON: Come on, come on, war. OREN: Come on. ANAELLE: Okay, come, Shoshi. Where is he? AKIVA: Up. Can you see above? ANAELLE: Yes. OREN: No, if we don't take this game we are fools. ALON: Where? OREN: Left. Welcome to Sri Lanka. Skip RON SHAHAR: Alon and Oren. ALON: Right. RON SHAHAR: Where do you think you are? ALON: First. RON SHAHAR: You are the couple that came second. ALON AND OREN, SECOND PLACE OREN: Ah, Fast Forward. ALON: Ahhh, right. OREN: We didn't take into account that someone took the Fast Forward. ALON: Inna, no? Who took it? Inna, yoo. RON SHAHAR: Inna schooled you today. ALON: No, she did, she played... OREN: Well done to her. ALON: Inhale, inhale, inhale. OREN: And after what they all did to them. ALON: They had the most U-Turns. OREN: Yes, poor things. ALON: Happy to give her first place. C-ALON: We were very happy, really really happy. This is the place to say that the blondes, as far as I'm concerned, made a transformation from below, devotion, played an intelligent game today, right? C-OREN: And the choice to take the Fast Forward was right for them. C-ALON: Intelligent game with correct choices. AKIVA: We are very, very close to the final. ANAELLE: Shoshi, for us.
