RON SHAHAR: Eleven Israeli couples went to the biggest TV game in the world. Six of them remain in the race. TONIGHT ON HAMEROTZ LAMILLION… RON SHAHAR: The couple who come here last may find themselves out of the race. INTRO RON SHAHAR: The teams are now making their way to their next destination in Beijing, the Liangzi Massage Institute. Skip RON SHAHAR: Ossie and Carmit and Bar and Inna have not yet completed the Wheel of Misfortune side of the Detour mission. BAR: I have not eaten meat since time immemorial, I can not eat it. RON SHAHAR: Oren and Alon and Akiva and Anaelle are now approaching the next destination. AKIVA: Everything is tight today, come on. ALON: Come on, Oren, come on, I want to like ... to stay away from all the…guys. Skip ALON: Yoo, everything here … Skip ALON: Oren, they will not cut here. They do not take passengers here. OREN: So what are you, where do you want to go? They will cut sometime. C-ALON: We put on those shoes and look like two stuck. Skip ALON: Hit, hit.. Skip ALON: Be careful. Get on your shoe. C-ALON: These shoes, everything we did with them became a nightmare. OREN: Push the fence a little, look, like this. Skip AKIVA: He's full, he's full. Shosha, you ticked off this task, congratulations. Wherever we go according to halakha we never lose. C-ANAELLE: Thank God, in a crazy miraculous way we managed the mission on the first attempt that it just made us close the whole entire gap that we had. Skip AKIVA: Here, here he's letting someone off, Shosha. Shosha, he's letting someone off here. Skip C-AKIVA: With these weird shoes you tried on on the road. ANAELLE: Mother. ANAELLE: No doubt I am terribly pleased with these shoes, although they are uncomfortable, they ventilate my feet a bit. AKIVA: How do you find something positive in it? ANAELLE: How cute, even their hello, ni hao. Like some kitten. Ni hao. TOM; Come on, go. Come on, go. ADELE: You want to fall and break your head, really? Do you want to twist your leg suddenly? C-ADELE: China is a very difficult country, very difficult people, very difficult language, their writing is very difficult, their speech is very difficult. Skip TOM: Adele, ask here. Skip C-ADELE: What they are doing is very difficult, what they are eating is very disgusting, everything around China is really difficult. C-TOM: Their high heels are very difficult. C-ADELE: Their high heels are very difficult. ADELE: Enough, I do not have the strength for this anymore, well. ADELE: I did not run, I fell now, I did not run in life. I did not run, did you see I fell? Do you want me to fall and I will twist my leg? Is that what you want? Look, look, do you see what's happening? TOM: What’s wrong with you? ADELE: Do you see what’s happening? TOM: What’s wrong with you? What’s this? ADELE: I fall and you do not care. TOM: What’s wrong with you? ADELE: My leg hurts. TOM: How did you fall for it, mami? ADELE: What how? Fell. What is this how did I fall for it? Falling like that, boom, boom, falling, boom trakh. Skip ALON: Like two stuck. ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE ALON: Roadblock. C-ALON: I see red, my heart is already falling, I am anxious about the Roadblock missions, the strategy between us that I will finish as many Roadblock missions as soon as possible, get it out of my head. ALON: For those who come to indulge? I’ll do it. RON SHAHAR: A Roadblock task is a task that only one team member can perform. Team members must distribute the Roadblock missions equally throughout the entire race. In the current Roadblock mission the performing team member must undergo a Chinese massage - or perhaps a Chinese torture? RON SHAHAR: Reflexology is an ancient Chinese science that provides healing to the body through foot massage. After walking in Chinese high heels the feet definitely need release. One of the couple now has to sit down for a foot massage that tens of thousands of Chinese go through every day. After a short sip of green tea he will have to indulge in a foot massage for twenty minutes. The masseur will press with her fingers in the right places on the thin line between pleasure and pain. In case of extreme pain, the recipient of the massage can ask to stop the massage. But then he will have to start it all over again. Only a couple who goes through the massage in full will get the following hint. ALON: You should enjoy a cup of warm tea and get a deep Chinese massage on your feet. Only after twenty minutes of massage will you get the following hint. C-ALON: What fun that I took it. C-OREN: Completely upside down. C-ALON: Completely upside down, was scared of the Roadblock and here I am going to get a foot massage for 20 minutes. ALON: Come on, let's tick this off, what a Roadblock mission, eh? Skip ALON: Yoo, what a stink of tea. OREN: How is the water? ALON: Pleasant. ALON: Disgusting. Yoo, disgusting, Oren. OREN: It’s hot? Is it hot? Skip OREN: Give two sips and finish if it's not hot. ALON: You know what, what poison is this thing? I'm suffering ... C-ALON: I drank the shocking, bitter cup of green tea. OREN: Now it starts the twenty minutes. C-ALON: She kind of started playing with my legs, turned around, I kicked, it seemed to me like a normal task. ALON: Yoo, what a Roadblock. ALON: I'm happier. OREN: Could it be that there is no catch in this mission? ALON: Of course. AKIVA: They do it, what a cool thing. ANAELLE: What? AKIVA: What is this thing? ANAELLE: It's a dance. AKIVA: Yes, what are they dancing like in the middle of the street? ANAELLE: Maybe to bring people to the restaurant. AKIVA: How funny, ya Allah. ANAELLE: How cool they are, totally. AKIVA: Something else. ANAELLE: It's cool. They too are not ashamed, as tough and not smiling as they are. Look what a culture they have. AKIVA: I'm happy with the Chinese at the moment. ANAELLE: Truly. AKIVA: Here. ANAELLE: Here, okay. AKIVA: Okay. Skip ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE ANAELLE: For those who come to indulge? AKIVA: Treat yourself, baby. ANAELLE: God will save me from any guard. OREN: Cigars and I'll bring you a glass of whiskey now. ALON: Yoo, bro, here it starts. Bro, bro, yoo, yoo, yoo, yoo… ALON: It hur- *screams* Not normal. Skip ALON: It hurts, it hurts, it hurts. Skip ALON: She's killing my leg. OREN: Okay, this, this is it right now. C-ALON: It's excruciating pain, excruciating pain in the legs. I say, unbearable. Skip AKIVA: Careful, careful now, I do not want you to fall. C-ANAELLE: Precisely the place looks very nice and very inviting and very fun and in another second is going to pamper me and everything is fine. Skip C-ANAELLE: And I hear screams in her name, God save. ANAELLE: The Lord will have mercy, will keep me safe. ALON: Oren, Oren, it hurts! OREN: Shout. ALON: Shut up already! It's inhuman. Skip OREN: Do not lift your legs, do not lift ... Do not lift your legs. ALON: Oren, be with me, do not tell me now to ... OREN: I'm with you, press me, press as hard as you can. Skip ANAELLE: Calm down, calm down, sweetheart, calm down please in your mother. Hallelujah, Shoshi! She’s crazy. Skip ANAELLE: Shoshi, Shoshi, this isn’t funny. You don’t know what she's doing, I don’t know, I don’t know how I will get through it. C-ANAELLE: I do not know how I'm going to get out of this alive and for twenty minutes I have to put up with this. C-ALON: I scream in pain, murder, murder, murder. C-AKIVA: Screams and crying, it was chilling, the maternity ward sounded more relaxing than that. C-ANAELLE: Blessed be the name of birth, we all want to go through it coming out with something, the most amazing thing in the world comes out of birth. Here we have to suffer out of torture, out of choice. I chose to suffer, I am mentally ill, I told Akiva, I need pills, you will hospitalise me. OSNAT: Does not go down. Like you’re eating a bite and swelling even more. OSNAT: You don’t know how to cook rice, raised by your mother, that's how you cook rice? It's dry. What, do not wet a little? Anything, spices? What a mold. Skip OSNAT: It does not move. OSNAT: How can you not have eyes like that? Constantly pooping with effort. CARMIT: With effort. OSNAT: If I try like this, the eyes will answer ... OSNAT: Yes, babe, how handsome you are. I would like you as my groom. OSNAT: Can no longer. Can no longer. Skip MOTI: We're going to Liangzi Foot Massage. Skip MOTI: The problem is that all the drivers here are idiots, that's the point, it's not that we fell for one idiot. They do not understand a word of English eh? PUNDAK: No. C-PUNDAK: People do not understand a word of what we say. You only tell him the word English, no, no, no, no ... PUNDAK: Let's hope we're going to the right place. MOTI: Don’t be so happy, drive. C-MOTI: We said this would be our biggest problem in the race, dumb taxi drivers. Skip TOM: Where are we, in God’s name? ADELE: Oh my god, what's going on here, Tom? Tom, Tom ... TOM; Look where the cab driver stopped us. There are things like that. C-ADELE: By the time we finally find a cab here, he's bringing you to a place that's not about life. ADELE: These Chinese will kill us in the end. C-ADELE: What, you're Chinese, you're supposed to know where you live, you're supposed to know where everything is, you're also a taxi, you're supposed to know. TOM: Let's take a cab. Skip ADELE: Yes travel right, no travel right, go there, go there. TOM: Here, here. Skip TOM: So stop on the side, stop, stop. Skip ADELE: How tasty this is. TOM: How tasty. BAR: I do not eat meat, I am disgusted with meat, I can not eat it. Yoo, mother, enough. INNA: Yoo, my poor thing. C-BAR: Today we were spread out in the toughest U-Turn that has been in the race so far from its inception up until now. There is no doubt that we ate the zambor in the hardest way possible. C-BAR: I ideologically, it was very very difficult with this task, very difficult for me, I had a very difficult time. Also the fact that I have not eaten meat for six, seven years and so much meat. INNA: Bar, let it go, I can't see you like this. BAR: I'm such an idiot for doing this. INNA: Please, don’t look at it. INNA: Well done you. INNA: My mami- BAR: Enough. INNA: What? BAR: Do not touch me. INNA: Why are you reacting to me like this? BAR: Because I can not, I need to be in it, it’s not about you. C-BAR: I will not really retire now and say to Inna, Inna, we do not do it because of my difficulty with meat. So no, I'm over my crazy difficulty with meat, I'll shut my mouth and I'm eating it, there's nothing to be done. BAR: Oh, that's so repulsive to me. C-BAR: After all it's just food, in the end, these Chinese, I said to myself in my head, Bar, they eat it, it's all a matter of culture, like in India you don't eat a cow and it's sacred and with us it's the most accessible and fun thing in the world and for them it is not, so it's a matter of culture and mentality. INNA: Bar, I'm sorry. C-BAR: I did not feel sorry for myself but my conscience fucked me over. How repulsive it is. Yoo, my poor thing. C-BAR: Like there is no way I am going back home to this now, I have finished this task. INNA: Well done you. C-INNA: My feelings for Bar as a person and appreciation, just intensify day by day. It really strengthens us, each for herself and our relationship together, it's really like, this race is the baby of both of us. C-BAR: It's just like that. C-INNA: It is an experience that ... C-BAR: It's just my and her own creation, no one can be a partner in this experience like me and like Inna, ever, it can’t happen ever. C-INNA: Forever. This is something that will accompany us forever. BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN FIFTH PLACE BAR: You have to reach the Liangzi Massage Centre, where you will find the following hint. AD BREAK Skip PUNDAK: Here, here, Liangzi, Liangzi. Skip MOTI: These shoes are killing me. PUNDAK AND MOTI, CURRENTLY IN THIRD PLACE MOTI: Roadblock. PUNDAK: For those who like to indulge? I prefer that you do this. MOTI: Come on. ANAELLE: She’s crazy, Akiva, she’s crazy. You do not know what she's doing. Wait, wait, wait... AKIVA: Do not run away, do not move. C-ANAELLE: It's a pain we do not know, let's say, that it's hard for me to believe that someone comes to this massage voluntarily. Skip ANAELLE: Wait, does she not relax every now and then? AKIVA: No, she's not relaxing, that's the point. C-ANAELLE: It was deadly in levels, it was a thing ... it was unbearable. I just said, wait, Anaelle, stop, stop for a moment, take strength, renew your strength, stop and start again. ANAELLE: Shoshi, are you here? Shoshi? ALON: I'll break her wrist, I'll break you. ALON: Give me a hand, give me a hand. OREN: Press. C-ALON: I grab his hand like that. C-ALON: Screams of terror. C-ALON: My leg just hurt. ALON: That monster. OREN: Poor thing. ALON: Poor thing, feel sorry for her. I'm crying too. ALON: What do you feel sorry for? OREN: Because, you know, she is unaware of the intensity and level of suffering of people. C-OREN: I was a little more sensitive in this matter, because I am a very, very sensitive person. C-ALON: Very, very, empathetic and sensitive and caring. ALON: Enough, enough, it hurts me. ALON: Yoo, what a nightmare. C-ALON: This is the most painful thing I have ever had in my life. Skip OREN: Poor thing. ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE Route Info. ALON: What is the clue hidden in the string of songs? RON SHAHAR: Crews must now reach 798, Beijing's bustling art district. Here they will have to find two Chinese with a contrabass. There are a billion Chinese living ... RON SHAHAR: Couples will have to listen through their tablet to a number of Hebrew songs related to China. Chinese mystics ... RON SHAHAR: Their next clue is moving through the streets of the compound and is two Chinese with a contrabass, as the song goes. Once they recognize the song in the string of other songs being played, they will have to find two Chinese with a contrabass that a policeman constantly shoos off and that’s that. Once they meet them they will have to sing the song to them. Two Chinese with a contrabass… RON SHAHAR: Only after they complete the song to the end will they get the next hint. OREN: Now your legs hurt? ALON: Obviously. Skip OREN: Murderous pain, murder, murder? ALON: Murder, murder, murder. Skip ALON: A song that will appear in front of you on the street. OREN: You have to identify the songs and see some performance or something there. ALON: Nurit Galron and Shlomo Artzi. OREN: The Mystics. They are my private life ... with the tooth that has been rocking for me for four days. OREN: This is Ariel Zilber. I think about it and then forget C-ALON: Travel to zone 798 when we are supposed to find something on the street according to three Israeli songs. OREN: There is nothing to keep listening to every song. ALON: Listen, what? What nothing? Billion Chinese, it already solves for you? OREN: That's the name of the song. ALON: So what? OREN: So what, it's not ... ALON: Listen, do you have anything better to do? C-ALON: Looking for a sign. It's like, it seems obvious it's so simple but you do not know what you are looking for, that it may be in the program one of the most challenging things, that you do not know what you are supposed to look for. PUNDAK: Hot? So drink it with one gulp. Gulp, cold, put everything in. You have no choice. C-MOTI: She takes your nerve, she massages and she penetrates and puts in and turns and ... as one has to pamper, pamper, she pampers to the end. Puts in and does and does and does and it hurts. INNA: Bar, try to stop a cab. Skip INNA: Here, open the trunk. [sic] (unsubtitled) INNA: It's so annoying on the inside that we do not deserve this U-Turn, it just does not deserve us. Once we arrived first, we sighed all as if ... each position creaked in the teeth, come last, turn everything as if giving ... like squeezing the juice, just to get there. C-INNA: On the one hand you can yes, turn up and say, yes like, I'm a little proud or I'm a little threatening and finally I'm a little annoying to the rest of the group, on the other hand it's hurting somewhere. BAR: It's already getting personal. INNA: It's like, it's the most personal in the world. BAR: But I don’t understand why. Skip C-PUNDAK: I really did not feel sorry for him, if we were not under pressure it would have been, the task I most enjoyed in HaMerotz LaMillion. C-MOTI: More than the fire? C-PUNDAK: More than the fire, because fire can do you no harm, here you really suffered. C-PUNDAK: I would literally sit and enjoy. C-MOTI: You see, this is a partner who came with you to HaMerotz LaMillion, to be with you, you understand? This is a friend, you understand? This is an acquaintance, you understand? This is a person who calls you 60 times a day. C-PUNDAK: Acquaintance, acquaintance. C-MOTI: This is a person who drives you crazy about everything. This is a person you have been counselling for 20 years of life. Do you understand? This is a person who wants you to suffer. ADELE: Here, Liangzi Foot Massage, here. TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE TOM: For those who come to indulge? Do you want to do that, mami? C-ADELE: Here is the hint, who wants to be pampered, so maybe you will be pampered? Now there is no such thing as a Roadblock mission of indulgence, especially not in HaMerotz LaMillion. ADELE: Mami, it's a Roadblock, it's not really for those who come to indulge. TOM: Do it, mami, we'll each have done three, I think it's going to be fine for you. ADELE: Well, fine, no problem. C-ADELE: And he still told me I would do it. So I did not have the strength to quarrel with Tom anymore, I said to myself, Adele, no problem, do it. TOM: Are you doing it? Flowing? Come on, mami. C-ADELE: I said, thank you, my life, for bringing me, for that, really thank you for the Roadblock. ADELE: Can I get through this, Moti? MOTI: You've suffered Tom for three years, you can go through anything. ADELE: Ick, what's this tea? C-ADELE: It was the most shocking tea I have ever tasted and sipped from it ever. It was so smelly I had to drink it like that, like that. Like that I drank it. ADELE: Moti, it's to the point ... how do you feel? How do you feel, Moti? MOTI: How do I feel? Wait until you feel it, holy shit. C-MOTI: I saw Adele sitting next to me, she was shaking with fear of death so Idan signalled to me, every time she was touched, he made a sign to me and I screamed as if in her name. That I would scream bloody murder just so she would panic. ADELE: Oh my god, only just what he does it already hurts me. TOM: My life, I swear to you that he only hurts you, it has nothing to do with it. TOM: Enough, enough, enough! TOM: Enough! Enough already, enough! I'm asking you, I'm asking you, stop. ADELE: It hurts, not so hard, please. Crazy. C-PUNDAK: I'm sure I'll enjoy watching it on TV. I'll sit down, I'll run this segment on and off. C-MOTI: On and off, no, trial, run on and off. ATTEMPT #2 Skip C-ANAELLE: Then the lovely Chinese started again and I said, there is no choice, like it’s a Roadblock, I must do it. TOM: Yes, yes. C-ADELE: She stabs you in the leg and makes you like that ... like they take your leg and do it to you like that with a screwdriver. There are just no such things, what pain. TOM: Cannon, the Hollywood, the between Hollywood and Miami, the number one here in this whole story. You are strong that there is no such thing. ADELE: Oh my god! TOM: Babe, I'm fulfilling a dream for you, I'll marry you after the show. I will marry her, I swear to you I will marry you. TOM: No, no, you exaggerated, my life, exaggerated, don’t bite me. TOM: Yes, you’re strong. TOM: You've ruined my ear already, but, my life, you're amazing. ADELE: Oh my god. TOM: That we will not know. ADELE: Crazy. TOM: That the Creator of the world, who will help the Creator of the world, that we will not know from impurity, that the girl will go through it in peace. MOTI: Listen, Tom, you're on fire. PUNDAK: Not knowing impurity. MOTI: Not knowing impurity. C-PUNDAK: Tom and Adele it's like, it's not like a couple on a show, it's like an imitation of a couple on a show. TOM: I can not with it anymore, I ask to move rooms. I can not. C-PUNDAK: The guy needs to do an ad for Pan, you know. With the earring here shimmering. C-MOTI: With the earring shimmering, yes. What a character he is. C-PUNDAK: Listen, he's a genius. C-MOTI: No, but you know what to do, with the face to do like that. C-PUNDAK: Yes, right! ADELE: What is this, I have a delicate leg, why is she doing this to me? C-PUNDAK: And Adele is just, no, indescribable, indescribable. C-MOTI: Did you notice she asks the same question twenty times? Wait, what are you saying? Wait, no? What, yes? C-PUNDAK: No, no, it's like that. C-MOTI: If not this. C-PUNDAK: Wait, what are you saying? Wait, what are you saying? Wait, wait, come explain to me, come explain to me. ADELE: Tomorrow I will still have this leg, yes? TOM: There is no such thing, you all do not understand it. Skip PUNDAK AND MOTI, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE MOTI: You must reach the 798 area and discover there the song that is hidden from the songs you have heard. I think about it and then forget. Think of other things. PUNDAK: This is the most complicated song. C-PUNDAK: We did not know what was wanted of us, we were trying to listen to Ariel Zilber. And now the Chinese guy’s shouting at us… I told you to stop immediately. Stop the music now. Having a relationship with my wife. I’m telling you to stop the music. MOTI: You killed my soul, you killed me. Two Chinese with a contrabass ... sat by the road and chatted loudly ... ALON: You see? These sculptures. C-ALON: Travelling to Area 798, this is the gallery area of Beijing, all Westerners come to buy the contemporary art of China. A song that will appear in front of you on the street. We are supposed to find according to one of the three songs a sign in 798. Now understand what 798 is, it's Dizengoff Centre times four. C-ALON: This is not a street, this is not a street section, Frishman/Dizengoff. C-OREN: It's a huge compound. C-ALON: A huge complex of dozens of galleries and hangars. ALON: Have to jump on something right in front of our eyes, not upside down this time. ALON: Can't step on that foot. ALON: That stink. C-ALON: We walk around with the 40 kilos on our backs, looking for a sign but you do not know what you are looking for. OREN: What, we have mystics, mystic stalls here, and all sorts of things, let's take a moment, Alon. Skip C-ALON: She also broke my feet. MOTI: Look for maybe two Chinese. Billion Chinese it can not be. PUNDAK: Chinese mystics it also can not be, you understand? PUNDAK: Okay, let's start asking people. Skip MOTI: Sure? PUNDAK: Dude, they answered right, they know. Skip C-PUNDAK: We realised within two seconds that we were talking to people, that we should look for two Chinese with a contrabass. Skip MOTI: How, look at them, we missed them by a second. C-PUNDAK: We ran around like idiots with those stupid shoes. It was an uncreated nightmare. Skip C-MOTI: We chatted there for a long time, walked the street a few times. Every time we asked someone so he would say, there. C-PUNDAK: There, there, there. C-MOTI: Because it was actually, the hint was, a hint that moved from place to place. Because they moved, we never found them because we always went round and round and did not know what to do. Skip MOTI: She says they were here. PUNDAK: But how long ago, did you ask her? MOTI: She says 20 minutes ago. Will anyone find us? Never. OSNAT: Already crippled, also this, God save me. CARMIT: Come on, a few more minutes. A little more, Ossie, a little more. C-OSNAT: While I was eating the rice we went down to sixth place because everyone overtook us. Skip OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE OSNAT: Chinese Japanese. OSNAT: Come on! CARMIT: Look how they look at our shoes, like we've landed here from some star. CARMIT: Wait, we need to get our feet up. BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN FIFTH PLACE Roadblock. BAR: I’ll take it? INNA: Take it. TOM; Sick for you ... I'm just sick, sick ... Adele, no more of you ... In a second you're finishing it … here, finished. Skip TOM: Come on, good my life. TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN THIRD PLACE BAR: I can't believe this is going to be for 20 minutes. INNA: Mother, Bar, mother, mother, mami, how can I help you? C-INNA: Terribly do not want to sound cliché but I really experienced her pain. INNA: Yoo, mami, mother, mother. C-INNA: As if I kept feeling some kind of sting in my heart, it really hurts to be around her and feel her suffering. ANAELLE: Painful. AKIVA: Do you know that you are my whole world? ANAELLE: It hurts. C-AKIVA: I tried as hard as I could to hug her, hug her and ... I told her that I loved her and that she was strong and that she was a hero. AKIVA: Do you know how much I love you? C-AKIVA: It's hard to see your wife suffering and being helpless. Skip ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE ANAELLE: You must reach the 798 Zone and discover there the song that is hidden from the songs you have heard. Skip TOM: Great. Skip ADELE: Come on, go, go. ANAELLE: Wow, I can not step on the leg, she killed my leg. Skip AKIVA: Bring it, it's empty, it's empty, call it over. Skip Two Chinese with a contrabass…sat by the road and chatted loudly…A policeman came, expelled them and that's all ... OREN: Maybe you should look for a cop? ALON: A cop I say, let's hear it. A policeman came, expelled them and that's all ... ALON: A policeman came, expelled them and that’s all. OREN: So the Chinese will no longer be there. ALON: Two Chinese with a contrabass. OREN: He has already expelled them. There should be only the policeman. Because if he has already expelled them ... is that too complicated? Skip ALON: That’s the story. Skip ALON: Here's a cop. OREN: Yes, that might be it. ALON: Let's sing it to him, come on, let's run, it's him. Come on, come, Oren. ALON: Three, four and… The same song skip (1st 2 verses) What do these people want from me? Have you seen what shoes they have? What are those shoes? Skip ALON: Here, there’s a cop too. OREN: Where? ALON: Here. Here, here, Chinese with a contrabass! Guys, guys! Song skip (Verses 1 and 2) C-ALON: Suddenly we see two Chinese with a contrabass, a policeman next to them turns. Song skip (Verse 3) ALON: You know, they were here, we've been here a quarter of an hour. OREN: Yes, they kept running away from the cop. Some background information is needed here. The contrabass song is not originally Hebrew, but rather a German children’s nonsense song translated into multiple languages. The gimmick of the song is that with every successive repetition of the four-verse sequence you replace all of the vowels with one vowel, a bit like “Apples and Bananas” in English. Here Alon and Oren are singing it with every vowel as a u. C-ALON: We sang to them, it was fast, we were also here the couple who came first. Skip ALON: Come on, go, Oren, go. ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE ALON: You have to get to 798 Space where you will have to count toys that are made in China. RON SHAHAR: China is the largest toy manufacturer in the world, the label Made In China is a national pride. Couples must now arrive at the 798 Space toy factory. Here a small and colourful toy bag awaits them. Couples will now have to count the toys and submit to the factory manager the exact number of toys actually made in China. What they do not know is that in each bag are hidden some toys made in Israel. Which will make it very difficult for them to solve the task. Only after the factory manager approves the number of toys made in China, which by the way is different for every pair, will they receive the following hint. It’s not actually a toy factory, but nice to see the trend of counting tasks having a twist continue. ALON: Made in China, probably some sort of toys. OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE OSNAT: For those who come to be pampered? C-CARMIT: Who likes to be pampered? I do not know but I said, I will take it. CARMIT: Hello, what she’s going to do, I see now. OSNAT: Who likes to be pampered? CARMIT: To be pampered. OSNAT: For them it is called pampering. CARMIT: I have chick legs. CARMIT: A thousand years old. Down here. INNA: Mami, it's really just another second away. Mami, it’s another second more. Another second, my mami, another second. C-BAR: It hurt me very, very, very, very, very much. It hurt me to see Inna like that, she tortured me and it hurt to see me. INNA: Seven, six, five…three, two, one. C-INNA: We are going through experiences here that are really unusual. The more I go through a stage with her in this race, the more I appreciate Bar, the more I believe in Bar and I am more proud of Bar. BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN FIFTH PLACE And maybe it's a great life ... we lived it insanely ... BAR: What a day, huh, Inna? Look at me and see ... BAR: What a day. A little happy a little sad. C-BAR: I got into a situation here where you see a different colour in a person that you could not see in any other situation. And despite the difficulty, I love Inna day by day more and every day that passes I love her more than I loved her the day before. A little happy a little sad. COMING UP NEXT… OREN: Here, Alon, Alon, here. ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE ALON: You have to count toys made in China. OREN: Take azure, that's the colour ... black, I know what? Like our lives. ALON: No, no, I want to, pink was perceived well by me. ALON: Yoo, what a quantity. C-ALON: A counting mission of about a thousand dolls made in China. ALON: Check one minute. OREN: Here it says made in China. ALON: Yes, all of these are made in China. OREN: Here, too. ALON: What a waste of time, in my opinion they’re all made in China. Do you know how much there is here? C-ALON: We said, let's check as if one is a representative of all ... C-OREN: Because it is divided into types of dolls. C-ALON: From the tiger, from the bat. OREN: Made in China also these bats. ALON: Made in China these too. Those poor chickens. C-OREN: We checked that they are all made in China, so we said ... C-ALON: We tested one sample. C-OREN: So we said, we'll count everything. ALON: Well, there are thousands, Oren, need to arrange it in groups of 20. Groups, groups, this is the job now, groups, no matter the count. Oren, do not count right now, just make groups. OREN: But it is also innumerable here. ALON: Separate into groups, only groups now. Let me manage the task. Tom and Adele sing it with only the i vowel. Wow, continuously for 20 seconds. TOM: And u! Now they’re singing it with the u also. This is really cutting down on my translation time. Thanks guys. If you’re not problematic again I might consider bumping you out of blue just for this. C-TOM: And i! C-TOM: Flow with me, what’s wrong with you? And sometimes a strange life so they say ... the Chinese mystics ... and maybe it's a good life ... we lived it insanely ... C-ANAELLE: It was really nice to hear songs in China, Israeli music, in Hebrew, it was really fun like that, right? C-AKIVA: Yes. C-ANAELLE: It was nice. C-AKIVA: A little Shlomo Artzi. Skip AKIVA: Taxis here are really awfully cheap, Shosha. Shosha, do you not want to take a taxi ride and just look out of the car? ANAELLE: No, not necessary. C-AKIVA: We reach District 798, start walking down the street and looking. AKIVA: Well, let's move on. Skip C-ANAELLE: You do not know what to look for, like what you are looking for now? AKIVA: Shosha, 798 is a huge area, yes? Skip MOTI: What a bummer that they don't stand still? PUNDAK: All right, that's the whole mission, so what? Skip I have a feeling we'll be waiting for them for a long time. The contrabass song INNA: Isn't this here one big Chinese? BAR: Two Chinese with a contrabass, it's supposed to be there. INNA: It can be there, and it can be there. BAR: Look at this side, I'm looking at this side because I think I saw something. INNA: Are you looking here? Wait, here, two Chinese with a contrabass. BAR: Where? Where? Where? Okay. Skip C-BAR: The taxi passes, we did not get to breathe right, left and this amazing Inna recognized the two Chinese. ANAELLE: Here, here, I saw them, straight, straight. AKIVA: The blondes. ANAELLE: How stupid I am, I'm walking around here for an hour. Two Chinese with a contrabass. Skip INNA: We found it earlier. AKIVA: Together, we will sing together, you will receive the hint before us. C-BAR: Akiva and Anaelle reaped from our fruit. We basically revealed to them what needed to be done on the mission. Skip BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE BAR: Place name in English, 798 Space. ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN THIRD PLACE AKIVA: You have to get to Space 798 where you will need to count toys that are made in China. Skip ANAELLE: Take care of your feet, do me a favour. Skip OSNAT: Little bit more. C-CARMIT: It's like taking your foot and cutting you a toe, just sharp and smooth, taking a foot, a boom cut. C-CARMIT: In another minute I would devour her. CARMIT: Enough, enough, I can not, do not you understand?! It hurts, she kills me, it's like fire, fire. C-CARMIT: I've already got fire from there, fire. So it was unbearable, it was impossible. CARMIT: Enough, enough, enough, do not want, do not touch me, do not want, I can not, do not you understand?!! She killed me! Yoo, it's fire, fire, I can not. OSNAT: So go home then, come on. CARMIT: She presses too hard, I can not. OSNAT: Okay, go home if you can not handle it, go. CARMIT: We'll go home, I can not. OSNAT: Come on. C-CARMIT: It was unbearable and I said I want to stop, just stop, do not want, do not continue, I for my part, return home, do not want to continue. ATTEMPT #2 CARMIT: Now from the beginning? ALON: Beautiful, beautiful, masses, this is the direction of the count. ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE AKIVA: Shosha. ANAELLE: What? Skip C-ANAELLE: When we got there we saw the brothers who we knew were supposed to be well ahead of us. So I said, okay, if they’re still here yet it's probably our time to close the gap. C-AKIVA: We said, now everything is reset, we must fly away quickly. ANAELLE: What an adorable task. C-AKIVA: The mission was to count only toys made in China. ANAELLE: How cute it is. C-AKIVA: It was tiny dolls. C-ANAELLE: Such cuties. AKIVA: Can I take some as a souvenir? C-ANAELLE: I loved all these little dolls, it's so cute, really. C-AKIVA: Too bad it was impossible to take any home. C-ANAELLE: Yes, they were really cute. AKIVA: You have to arrange them in piles of ten, piles of ten. ANAELLE: Okay, cool. C-ANAELLE: Thank God Akiva is studying economics, he said, work organised, we divided all the dolls according to what’s an elephant, what it is, what a bear is, what is here, what is there. Then we divided them into tens, ten, ten, ten, ten. Because otherwise he would just make us a salad in the head. C-AKIVA: Right. INNA: God forbid. BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN THIRD PLACE OREN: Six, eight. C-ALON: We were 45 minutes sitting alone in this hangar, then couples starting to come in one after the other, pouring the pile, starting to count. Stressed us out a little. Twenty, forty, sixty… BAR: All you have to do is find the ones that are not made in China, and they are on the side and then we will count all the ones that are. INNA: But mami, that takes a long time, you will understand that you have here a parameter of time. ALON: Oren, let’s try it. Skip C-ALON: We count, we do double checks. OREN: 38 piles and another 14. ALON: 38 times 20 and that's the number? C-ALON: Come to the task judge. Skip C-ALON: This gesture we so don’t love to accept. ALON: What, have to go through one by one, Oren? OREN: No, not doll by doll, by type. ALON: Sure there is no mistake? You count mine, I count yours. TOM: Two Chinese with a contrabass! C-TOM: To our good fortune, really, how do you say it, to our good fortune? Skip C-TOM: Suddenly we saw two Chinese with a contrabass, sitting on the side of the road and chatting loudly. Skip C-TOM: A policeman comes and takes them. C-ADELE: I screamed only a little at this cop. C-TOM; We got into a fight with the cop in a second, that he wanted to take them. Skip ADELE: Don’t you drive me crazy too. Skip *police verse plays with the shot of the police officer* TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE Skip PUNDAK AND MOTI, CURRENTLY IN FIFTH PLACE TOM: You have to get to Space 798 where you will have to count toys that are made in China. TOM: Look left, right. ADELE: Let's go to intelligent people. Skip ADELE: Where is Space, oh my god? MOTI: Left, left. It's hard for me to run with these shoes. TOM: Where is Space? ADELE: Here, Space, no? TOM: Not knowing impurity. Skip TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE C-ADELE: So Tom and I arrived at the place, we saw Inna and Bar, we saw Alon and Oren, we saw Anaelle and Akiva. TOM: Wow, what an amount. C-ADELE: We realised that it is really possible to change, to reduce gaps. ADELE: Mami, help me, what, do you think I'm a man? What is this, God save? AKIVA: Shosha, catch. C-ANAELLE: Akiva, genius, found that there are some dolls that are made in Israel, that we did not have to count them. AKIVA: Shosha, I found another one. C-ANAELLE: That's how we found the catch of the mission. Skip C-ANAELLE: And we found the number. ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE AKIVA: You must reach the Guanmiao Pavilion located on Jingshan Hill in Jingshan Park which overlooks the Forbidden City. This is also the seventh end point. ANAELLE: This is the seventh end point of the race around the world. RON SHAHAR: The couples must now reach the seventh end point of the race where the last emperor awaits them. At the foot of this temple lies the Forbidden City. For centuries the Forbidden City was the home of the Emperor of China who prevented entry into it for foreigners. The historic temples, the magnificent gardens and the nine thousand temples that make up the city make it one of the wonders of the world. The vantage point over the Forbidden City open to the general public until ten o’clock at night is also the end point of this section of the race. Couples who arrive later than that will be checked in at the entrance to the venue. The couple who come here last may find themselves out of the race. Skip OREN: There is something more substantial here. ALON: They’re all made in China, what is this? ALON: I do not know what, there is something else in the game. C-ALON: Then suddenly in the fourth count Oren winks at me, made in Israel. Skip ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE BAR: We’ve been here forever. Yoo, we’re dead. ALON: You have to get to the Guanmiao Pavilion…which is the seventh end point of the race around the world. Skip C-ANAELLE: We said, okay, we should start giving a real marathon. C-AKIVA: And we know the brothers are two minutes behind us. ALON: Yoo, how we lost first place again like idiots. C-ALON: Akiva and his wife left before us, by a few minutes. C-OREN: Maybe three. C-ALON: Ten? C-OREN: Two and a half. C-ALON: We settle it, it was nine minutes. C-OREN: Seven and a half. C-ALON: Excellent. Skip ANAELLE: Come Shoshi, he said straight and to the right. Skip ALON: Perfect, let me talk. OREN: Careful. C-ALON: We got in the taxi without being settled on the address, it was vague. ANAELLE: Taxi, call him, well, please. Skip C-AKIVA: Take a hundred local money and give me your cab. Skip ANAELLE: Thank you, thank you. (Chinese) ALON: Do not think he understands us. I do not know where he is going. AKIVA: I want to believe he knows where he's going and not just hang out with us. ALON: What is the chance that he is going where we need to go? It could be the opposite direction at all from the Pit Stop. C-ALON: We drive a quarter of an hour, 20 minutes, 25 minutes. I say to Oren, Oren, it’s like he does not know where he is going, as if there is no destination here at all. We owe someone who knows English a moment. Skip AKIVA: You can run all day, in the end you get stuck with a taxi driver ... C-AKIVA: The ride is long and it takes half an hour, it takes 40 minutes. C-ANAELLE: And you have no idea if you're actually five minutes from your spot or now he's doing you rounds all over town. Skip C-ANAELLE: And we're at night, now we need to find someone to start translating this address for us. Skip C-ANAELLE: We asked and asked another one and another one and no one was able to explain to us what this place is. Skip ANAELLE: What a drag. AKIVA: We missed the first place on this- ANAELLE: Oof. AKIVA: Unless they were blabbering on too. C-AKIVA: Now there is no room for mistakes in the race. C-ANAELLE: Any mistake you can pay for it expensively. In a matter of minutes you can find yourself out. ANAELLE: Ah, they must have already found it, the brothers, bummer. Skip C-ALON: Realised where he needed to go and from there we drove to the Pit Stop. AKIVA: This is the Forbidden City it seems to me. ANAELLE: What is a Forbidden City? Is it forbidden to be here at night? ALON: Here, here it is, here it is. OREN: It’s okay, it’s okay. ALON: Come on, you stuck, come on. AKIVA: We are the first in my opinion. ANAELLE: Not sure. AKIVA: On the mountain, climb the mountain. ANAELLE: With these shoes? AKIVA: There is a sign here. ANAELLE: Woe is me, Lord have mercy. C-AKIVA: We go up the stairs slowly. C-ANAELLE: Wow, wow, those shoes. OREN: I tore one of the pompoms. Woe is me. ANAELLE: Beret campaign. AKIVA: It's not over until it's over. ANAELLE: Lord have mercy. ALON: What am I doing here? Running like a cat slaughtered in this stinking Beijing. AKIVA: Wow, there are more stairs, Shosha. ANAELLE: More? ALON: Well, where's it? It can take a month. Welcome to Beijing. Skip RON SHAHAR: Anaelle and Akiva. You are the couple who came first. ANAELLE AND AKIVA, FIRST PLACE ANAELLE: Yes, Shoshi! Yes, I'm very pleased. Yes, Shoshi. AKIVA: I don’t believe it. ANAELLE: Thank God, thank God. C-AKIVA: So he says we're in first place. AKIVA: Today we really wanted it, really. Skip C-ANAELLE: It was a crazy relief because it was a day we worked very hard for. RON SHAHAR: You put a lot of effort into it today. ANAELLE: Definitely. RON SHAHAR: And that's why when you return to Israel, a pampering vacation awaits you: AD BREAK ANAELLE: Yes, Shoshi, yes, it's for my mom the vacation, I promised, I promised, there is nothing to do, there is Gd in the world. Welcome to Beijing, China. Skip RON SHAHAR: Alon and Oren. You are the couple who came second. ALON AND OREN, SECOND PLACE OREN: It is not clear what this ongoing result of 2nd means, we are unable to analyse it. The first pairs alternate, first, last, fifth. We maintain stability. C-ALON: There may be another type of thinking here, we will call it taking advantage of the possibilities available in the game, to bring us to a more comfortable position in the final. C-OREN: Really be much more focused and bring our abilities to a climax all the time. And we have endless capabilities. Skip C-CARMIT: It was very hard, very hard. Skip C-CARMIT: How many births I have given birth to, four, I was ready to give birth to ten more and not such a massage. OSNAT: Here, it's over, it's over. Skip OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE CARMIT: Experience but there's a limit. What's the matter, war? CARMIT: In the trunk, in the trunk. OSNAT: This defeat does not bode well, Carmit. CARMIT: It's not a defeat, do you not understand? You have no mind, you have no mind. OSNAT: I have no mind? CARMIT: Yes. You have no mind, you call it defeat? OSNAT: I as I came here knew I would have to do things that are difficult. But what to do, but this is the plan, I continue to survive another plan, rebel, I with excruciating pain in my hand and we do. CARMIT: Survive to the end, why? OSNAT: If I succeed, why not? C-OSNAT: We are not quiet and gentle girls, what we have to say we say, to say the least. CARMIT: I do not call it defeat. OSNAT: As if you're coming to me with complaints, I do not understand you. CARMIT: Because you're like "compete." OSNAT: I came to the game and I will compete. CARMIT: Tomorrow they will give you something you have to pick up in your hand and you can not, will you? OSNAT: If I do not succeed, I will not do. If I do not succeed, I will not succeed with plaster, I will not do. CARMIT: If tomorrow you can not with the cast I will tell you, is it a defeat? C-OSNAT: It's an argument for that moment and beyond, moving on, moving on. It's not something we sleep with, holding one resentment for a second. Because she's beating. C-CARMIT: Many couples within the mission. We sigh as if even if difficult we get along on the mission itself but after that if there is something there are the explosions. As with any pair. TOM: Sick for you ... I'm just sick, sick ... ADELE: Sure it’s written made in China here somewhere? TOM: Made in China, do you see it? Made in China is written there? TOM: Here, look, all these ugly ones, check them out. ADELE: What will you check on them, what are you just throwing at me, check on you. No, now everyone will check them. PUNDAK AND MOTI, CURRENTLY IN FIFTH PLACE MOTI: What China made on the right, what it didn’t, the left, cool? MOTI: Made in China… PUNDAK: Throw me the yellows. MOTI: Let me do the sorting here, leave the count, it's less important now. C-PUNDAK: Moti checked what was made in China, what was not. PUNDAK: Each pile is counted exactly and connected. C-PUNDAK: And I started counting in piles of 50. MOTI: Idan, count that pile again. BAR: 44, 46. INNA: It’s 30 plus 50. BAR: 723. BAR: Oh my god. INNA: Let's count the yellows again. Skip BAR: 746. INNA: How did we come up with something completely different before? Skip C-BAR: It does not matter how many times you sort them, Inna counts, I come out with another, I count, Ina comes out with another. I’m 73, she's 71. INNA: Let's count the yellows again. BAR: I do not believe this. INNA: Relax.
