RON SHAHAR: Tonight on "HaMerotz LaMillion”. After an arduous journey in China, six teams will arrive at the ancient opera hall in Beijing, one of them will not be allowed to continue the race and will board a plane en route to Israel. TONIGHT ON HAMEROTZ LAMILLION… INTRO RON SHAHAR: Night falls on Beijing, the capital of China. The teams are now in the midst of this segment of the race that will determine who will be the five pairs that will get to reach the final stretch of the race. RON SHAHAR: The elephant in the china shop mission now features Tom and Adele. ADELE: Tom, Tom! TOM: Enough, relax. ADELE: What’s wrong with you? TOM: So you broke, so what happened? Broke, enough. RON SHAHAR: And Ossie and Carmit. OSNAT: Carmit, I can’t see. RON SHAHAR: Who still have to serve the one-hour waiting penalty because they arrived last at the previous end point. Skip RON SHAHAR: Akiva and Anaelle and Oren and Alon completed the task- Left, take left. RON SHAHAR: And they spend the waiting time- Skip RON SHAHAR: By gluing the broken chinaware. ALON: No nerves, come on, just a little bit more. RON SHAHAR: Bar and Inna, who left last towards the china shop, are still on their way there. C-BAR: At that moment I told Inna okay, it's just a case of let's buckle up and shut up because talking to him is not going to happen. Skip RON SHAHAR: While Moti and Pundak who were the first to go to the mission- Skip RON SHAHAR: Have not found the address of the china shop for three hours now. Skip Very far. C-PUNDAK: We ask everyone, hello, is this the street? Yes. Where is 100? There. We go 100, 100 houses there. Hello, where is 100? Why, on the other side. Return to the other side. MOTI: I'm starting to go crazy. C-MOTI: It's a huge street, kind of like Rothschild in Tel Aviv, we're like... C-PUNDAK: Much bigger. C-MOTI: Like we started Rothschild from the beginning to the end, eight times we went back and forth. Skip C-PUNDAK: We began to understand that we must not be in first place anymore. MOTI: We are at a loss. Skip MOTI: Idan, I think it's a waste of time, let's run forward, it's heading there. C-PUNDAK: I come to the shop owner, I say to him, excuse me, what is the number of the shop here? C-MOTI: What number are you? C-PUNDAK: I do not know. C-MOTI: He does not have a clue. C-PUNDAK: Dude, this is your house like, this is your store. Skip C-PUNDAK: And we began to understand that our situation was, to say the least, not good. C-MOTI: Not good. C-PUNDAK: After a day of being first, we had fun...we did it by... C-MOTI: What is it, we had a smile on our face. C-PUNDAK: Yes. We did it like by walking backwards, by moonwalking. C-MOTI: By moonwalk. MOTI: Let's run maybe, it's a waste of our time, we're last, Idan. Dying to leave this country already. SPONSOR BREAK Skip ALON AND OREN, CURRENTLY IN FIRST PLACE ALON: You have to take a taxi to the old Beijing opera house, this will also be the eighth finishing point of the race. RON SHAHAR: The teams must now reach the old opera house of Beijing, Guanghuiguan, which was built in 1807. The best Chinese opera singers of all time appeared on the stage of this opera house and it is one of the most important opera houses in Beijing. This unique and ancient hall is also the eighth finish point of the race. The couple that gets here last may find themselves out of the race. ALON: Come on! War, war, war… C-ALON: It was a difficult day, the Great Wall, the labyrinth, it was hot, stressful. ALON: Come on. C-ALON: According to our common sense we know that today the six become the final five of the race. I can't describe this pressure, fire, blood and smoke transformations. ALON: We need to be focused, how do we find a taxi here? Skip C-OREN: Throughout the day there is one ongoing task of communicating and getting to the right places at the end of each segment. Which is a task in itself. Skip OREN: Who is it? ALON: Bar and Inna. OREN: Come on. ALON: Alright, it's here, too bad, get off, after the symbol. C-BAR: Entered, we saw Oren and Alon leaving. ALON: Open the trunk. What more could we ask for? C-BAR: They earned our taxi that took us, with the crazy driver. INNA: We’re last? OREN: Yes, in this task you will be last. ALON: Now Moti, unless it's Moti, we haven't seen Moti. C-ALON: And even when you get into a taxi and the taxi driver nods, until only you get out of the taxi and see the red gold flag. C-OREN: Russian roulette. C-ALON: The yellow and red, you are in a feeling of total uncertainty. MOTI: I don't have the energy to explain anymore, I don't have the energy. INNA: Yoo, what fear, now we are depending on the minutes. BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN FIFTH PLACE BAR: You have to go through carefully without breaking any dishes. INNA: We're small, we need to do it fast, come on. ANAELLE AND AKIVA, CURRENTLY IN SECOND PLACE AKIVA: You have to take a taxi to the old opera house of Beijing, Guanghuiguan, it is also the eighth finish point of the race. C-AKIVA: You are two places away from the final, you have to be focused and not give up a single minute at any moment. C-ANAELLE: Really. C-AKIVA: Because a small mistake and that's it. C-ANAELLE: A mistake and bad luck, can be full of a lot of things. C-AKIVA: Yes. ANAELLE: Ya Rabinan, Shoshi, wait a moment. C-AKIVA: It’s not necessarily who is the best now, they are all very good. ANAELLE: Where will a taxi come from here? Oh, what a hard day. C-ANAELLE: In China, whoever knew how to get to the right place and translated the place correctly and got the taxi driver, that's what... that's why he got to where he is in the game. Skip ALON: Come on, we're in good shape too. Guang-hui-gu-an. OREN: Come on, don't even try to spell it. ALON: What does an opera singer do? OREN: Leave now, well, I know what an opera is? ALON: What song? Give me a song. OREN: Does he know what opera is? Skip ALON: Nothing, okay, I tell him also to the ….. house, ok? Okay. Everything passes. Oh, Beijing, Beijing. It was a very difficult day, very. I'm exhausted, my legs are broken. OREN: What a creature you are, God. Skip BAR: Come on, go. You have to go and it's… OSNAT: Yoo, yoo, yoo, Carmit. C-CARMIT: I really think, according to the noises in our row, we didn't have many falls. C-OSNAT: Broke less, we broke less. OSNAT: Be careful, be careful, you move the whole table. Come on. Come on, lift high. C-TOM: Ossie and Carmit, as if there was no maze, went with the elephant, entered, ran over all of it, I think they got a half hour penalty. OSNAT: Yoo, Ari Pistak...thank you very much, be healthy, may God bless you. Skip ADELE: Mami, turn around. TOM: Come on. ADELE: What are you doing, Tom? TOM: Sorry, sorry. C-TOM: We are quite thin people and we caught the elephant, so we also dropped a lot but relatively the least of all. TOM: Careful, careful. Skip C-ADELE: After we actually finished and dropped off, I don't remember how many plates, then the manager of the store told us that we deserved a six minute wait. ADELE: Bring a plate and a plate, let's start gluing. INNA: Listen, I lift the highest, slowly, slowly. BAR: But you have to watch where you're going, Inna. INNA: Okay. BAR: You need to see... INNA: Three steps straight, Bar. Three steps straight. BAR: Okay. Do it slowly. INNA: One, two, three. BAR: Inna, but why are you picking it up, you need to see where you're going. C-BAR: I have to understand this part, she lifted the doll up, she hid her face and started walking. And I say to her, Inna, what are you doing? BAR: Inna, you can't... INNA: Mami, don't you understand that you can't really pass without breaking? BAR: I know but you can't pick it up. INNA: Use your logic. BAR: Do you see where you are going? INNA: No, I don't see, can you help me, do you want to see? C-BAR: Why were you hiding... C-INNA: Because if you lift the doll it wouldn't hurt the sides. C-BAR: But... C-INNA: And I expected Bar to direct me forward. C-BAR: How can I direct you? I do not see anything. INNA: We have no other choice, so what? I don’t know. I’m trying. INNA: Bar. C-BAR: Oh, that Chinese guy in the back, as if all I'm missing now is the whole horrible day I've had and the state of being a broken wreck at noon. INNA: Small steps. C-BAR: I also miss the eighty, hundred-year-old Chinese in the back screaming at me every time a piece of china falls. C-INNA: Not screaming, roaring. INNA: Bar, why is he shouting, yoo. C-INNA: Roaring, as if with the veins here sticking out. C-INNA: And cursing. BAR: Take a gentle, gentle right. Fine, fine right. INNA: Bar, this is all falling down, we’re dead. TOM AND ADELE, CURRENTLY IN THIRD PLACE TOM: You have to take a taxi to the old Beijing opera house. Come on, go. OSNAT AND CARMIT, CURRENTLY IN FOURTH PLACE OSNAT: Hurry, the last couple may find themselves out of the race. Please note, the pair that arrived last at the previous end point must serve a one-hour waiting time penalty near the end point. Come on, come on, come, come, come, we still have another hour to wait. C-OSNAT: There was the pressure, there was pressure in us, as if after all this is the status of the final five, it is much more competition than usual. And we have another hour waiting at the finish point because we arrived last last time. Come on, let's hit the road. Skip C-TOM: We had to get to the Opera Hall something. C-ADELE: Old. C-TOM: And Hall, was written…*skip* ADELE: We better find the address first. Skip C-ANAELLE: On the way to the taxi we saw such a group with some cute baby girl. C-AKIVA: Suddenly a girl who knows English approached. Skip C-ANAELLE: She translated this whole thing for us, really a miracle. TOM: Here, here. Skip ANAELLE: Come on, come on. ADELE: Anaelle and Akiva are behind us. TOM: Juanghujuang. ADELE: Anaelle and Akiva are behind us. Skip C-ADELE: So we said, fine, we have Akiva and Anaelle, we will continue after them. OSNAT: Come on, come on, go. C-ADELE: At the same minute Ossie and Carmit also arrived. OSNAT: Come on, follow them, tell him to follow them. ADELE: They're going, mami, they're going. C-OSNAT: At some point we saw Tom and Adele so we told the taxi driver, follow them. Skip TOM: This is expectation. ADELE: Competition, Tom. TOM: What do I care what now, well. OSNAT: This, this, this. CARMIT: Here they are. But he goes after the taxi, after Adele. OSNAT: They went to her. CARMIT: Adele here they are, in front of us. Skip OSNAT: Okay, he's going after them, come on. Let's hope it's right and we don't all go to the devils. CARMIT: Wow, wow, we still have an hour to wait, everyone will probably overtake us. OSNAT: I don't know, you can't really know. AKIVA: Fast, fast, fast, (Chinese), competition. ANAELLE: Where are Moti and Pundak? AKIVA: Moti and Pundak are already in first place in my opinion. ANAELLE: We are fighting lions, that's how it feels to me. Once again he was mean to me, Alon. When I broke the elephant and then I said, God save, he said, He will not save...He will not save you. AKIVA: Don't worry though. ANAELLE: I’m not worried. A dog that barks does not bite. ADELE: What’s happening? Where is the taxi? TOM: Where is he? Where is he? ADELE: I can't believe it, it wasn't them at all. What will I do now? C-ADELE: I was sure we were following Anaelle and Akiva's taxi, suddenly I realized it wasn't them at all, he was just going straight. Skip ADELE: What a bummer. Skip OSNAT: Tom and Adele went on to somewhere else altogether, where will we take them now? CARMIT: Now he doesn't know which way to go. OSNAT: Now we have lost them. C-OSNAT: At some point they split up, the two taxis.. One taxi went straight, one went left. OSNAT: Where are you going, our prince? Where are you going? At your mother's request. I hope he's not taking us now to...Oprah Vinaigrette...Winfrey, hope he’s not taking us to Oprah Winfrey. AKIVA: I don't see anyone. C-AKIVA: On the way you say, maybe he's making a turn and everyone has already passed us. C-ANAELLE: Because we didn't see the taxis behind us, it was also stressful, so we didn't understand what was happening. There was a feeling here that either they found it and then they are in a better place than us or we found it and in that case then where are they? Skip C-ALON: And the same feeling again, you're driving in Beijing, a driver who doesn't know where, doesn't call, you don't know how long. We are talking about travelling by taxi, so in Tel Aviv the longest taxi I take is seven, eight minutes. Here, a taxi less than 45 minutes is not a taxi. ALON: Go, go, let's go to the crowd. OREN: True, for a large number of people. ALON: To the large number of people. Bus stop. OREN: Yes. C-OREN: At this stage we do not have an address because there is no one to ask. C-ALON: In written English, the opera house in English. We said, let's go to the main street and find a place where English is spoken. OREN: There is a hotel here. ALON: Where? OREN: Ambassador Hotel. ALON: Where? So stop. Skip C-ALON: We remembered, we kept saying hotel, hotel. C-OREN: Hotel. C-ALON: And you recorded. C-OREN: Yes. C-ALON: On the left, you said, there is a hotel here. C-OREN: A big hotel. C-ALON: We immediately signaled for him to come to the hotel. OREN: Hotel, hotel, the Ambassador Hotel. ALON: What a hotel, does he know what a hotel is? OREN: Yes… C-OREN: He is pointing to some place here. C-ALON: How does he point? Skip OREN: No, let him make a turn. Skip C-ALON: Turn around, we almost got killed, the roads are there, everyone drives, there are no accidents at all, everyone drives as they want. Skip ALON: Go into the hotel, normal lobby. Skip C-ALON: We arrived at the hotel, we were approached by a receptionist, who speaks English according to the rule. Skip C-ALON: She looks at the address, she understands what it is about. ALON: I'm going to get him. I’m going to go get him. Skip C-ALON: I said, I don't take risks. Skip C-ALON: I took the taxi driver, put him in the lobby. Skip C-ALON: Okay, that's the sign he knows where we're going. C-OREN: That he knows where he's going. C-ALON: At least to him. C-OREN: Of his understanding. C-ALON: Of his understanding. Skip OREN: If we don't mess up now we will probably be second place. All in all, it seems to me that only Moti and Pundak left before us. C-ALON: At this stage we are 250 percent sure, I was never more sure of my position, that we are in second place, many things can be said about us, but we have a reality check. Skip ANAELLE: Wai, wai, wai, Lord have mercy. If he takes us to the right place, we are among the first, if he takes us to the wrong place, we are among the last. C-ANAELLE: Until you get to the point and as you don't see the flag and you don't understand that this is the place, you still think it could be on another street, in another area, at the other end of town. Like it's really scary. ALON: How much does the trip cost? OREN: Fifty. ALON: There, there, that’s enough. ANAELLE: Go. ALON: Okay. Why, how much did he pay you back? Thirty. Skip ANAELLE: Shoshi, come on, go run. What? Go, go. Shoshi, come on, go run. Come on! ALON: Wow, I'm so glad to see you, I couldn't believe I'd say that. Welcome to China. I am honoured to serve you the national Chinese drink, the Yangmei drink, the Chinese bayberry. OREN: A drink. ALON: Cheers, my brother. OREN: To life. Skip C-ALON: Standing on the greenish carpet, I was very happy to see the handsome guy. You know, second place, tough day, happy. RON SHAHAR: Oren and Alon. You are the couple that came in first. OREN: What? ALON: Ya Allah, ya Allah!!! You made me a fool. I can't believe it, seriously? Ya Allah, we played it. OREN: Wow, how amazing. ALON: We were sure, ya Allah. OREN: How great. ALON: Ya...I can't believe it. First place, I don't believe it, I just don't believe it. OREN: What an intensive day. ALON: Ya Allah. ALON AND OREN, FIRST PLACE RON SHAHAR: I am happy to inform you that you are the first couple to qualify for the final five. ALON: Ya Allah, I don’t believe it. Ya Allah. OREN: What a play. ALON: Ya Allah. I don’t believe it, I just don’t believe it. OREN: This time you surprised me. ALON: Really, you surprised me too, as I usually have no surprises. C-ALON: Suddenly he says, Oren and Alon, welcome to the final five. Now for whoever is sitting at home, we started 11 pairs altogether. C-OREN: Yes. C-ALON: The whole thing... they just fell and six pairs fell, each pair covered in blood. It's tasks, it's effort, it's difficulty, it's nerves, you can say spitting blood to reach status. RON SHAHAR: How was today? ALON: Wow. I'm not standing on my feet but it was ok, day after day. I don't think the difficulty is really physical difficulty, it's all together, it's the competition, it's the unknown location, it's the intensity. OREN: And here... ALON: In Beijing they don't speak, there is no language, this is the most difficult task we had. OREN: The hardest task is getting around the city. ALON: Yes, yes. The taxis are like, we already spoke to them in Hebrew, because it has no meaning in English, bro, right, left. C-ALON: Every race section is the same action, the same pressure, the same uncertainty that we are in and that is a very very very good feeling, that in this state we came to be both first and in the final five. ALON: Wow. Ya Allah, I don’t believe it. I broke your arm. OREN: He pierced my ear, broke my arm. I am a grown man, I am no longer built. ALON: You are already 47 years old. RON SHAHAR: Oren and Alon, as the winners of this segment, when you return to Israel, a pampering vacation awaits you as a gift from: SPONSOR ALON: Thank you very much. Come on, we played it. OREN: Not so strong, I already have broken joints. Skip The national Chinese drink, Yangmei juice. ANAELLE: God save. Skip AKIVA: In you, Lord, the King of the world, in whose word all things will be. ANAELLE: Amen. AKIVA: Amen. Skip RON SHAHAR: Anaelle and Akiva. You are the couple who came second. ANAELLE AND AKIVA, SECOND PLACE Skip AKIVA: Excellent, second is excellent. ANAELLE: Thank God. AKIVA: Second is great, really great. RON SHAHAR: I am happy to inform you that you are the second couple to qualify for the final five. ANAELLE: That's right, there are five of us. AKIVA: It has finally arrived. Finally it’s here, wow. C-AKIVA: It was amazing to hear that. C-ANAELLE: Satisfaction. C-AKIVA: We started this journey- C-ANAELLE: Relief. C-AKIVA: A long time ago, it seems like a long time ago. A long and difficult road and it is a great satisfaction. C-ANAELLE: But we can already see the light at the end of the tunnel. C-AKIVA: Really. ANAELLE: This is what we promised each other though. The final five, now you have to make a new promise. AKIVA: Right. We will think about the next destination. ANAELLE: How fun. AKIVA: What a beauty. ANAELLE: Thank God. AKIVA: Dream come true. Skip C-PUNDAK: We saw an American and Chinese couple, who is also American, they said to us, "Oh, market? It's here." Moti tells them, come, come with us. Just ran six miles. Skip C-PUNDAK: She tells him, listen, we ran six kilometres (actually 10 km if in miles), he tells her, so one more… C-MOTI: A little more, a little more, everything is fine, run with us. C-PUNDAK: A little more won't hurt you. MOTI: Oh, there's rhythm, there's rhythm. INNA: Shit, Bar. C-BAR: In the end we finished, we dropped about a thousand dishes. Skip INNA: What? Skip C-PUNDAK: They came to put us in the alley, we started running inside and then our eyes went dark because we realised one thing, the first taxi, from three hours ago, by chance, had dropped us off at that point. C-MOTI: Exactly there. PUNDAK: What did he say? MOTI: Get out. What? C-PUNDAK: If only we realised that it was in front of us, we would enter and not only finish first, finish first, just go to the next destination, finish that also and they would all still be in China. C-MOTI: Could have gone back and maybe even made a trip to Tel Aviv. C-PUNDAK: And there was a great frustration. MOTI: I still have hope, Idan. Come on, go. BAR AND INNA, CURRENTLY IN FIFTH PLACE BAR: You have to take a taxi to the old opera house of Beijing. MOTI: We've been walking around here for three hours. INNA: There, straight ahead. BAR: We also walked around for a long time. MOTI: Bar, run there? BAR: Yes, there. MOTI: Sure? C-BAR: We run outside, we see Moti and Idan running towards us. INNA: Straight. C-BAR: We had to grasp a gap, significant about which it was not even necessary to add words. Like Inna, Bar, quick but what is quick, insanely quick to fly away from here, we are not last place. PUNDAK AND MOTI, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE MOTI: Route Info. Come on, go. C-MOTI: When we saw Inna and Bar then we realised that the situation was not good. MOTI: Two, three, four, five done, we are the sixth. C-MOTI: We looked at the tracks and saw that just five tracks had already been used. C-PUNDAK: We also saw traces of... C-MOTI: Zhug. C-PUNDAK: Zhug. On the floor. C-PUNDAK: The traces of the Yemenis we already understood that they were there. But we knew they had another penalty of an hour waiting time at the end point. We said, if there is still a small chance then let's do this task quickly. Skip C-MOTI: We got into the elephants, put the trunk on us and started moving. MOTI: Wallak, you. Skip C-BAR: We know that now it is the level of suicide in the taxi. Skip INNA: No, no, no, the same scenario. No, it doesn’t happen to us. BAR: Wow, wow, what a situation. Skip INNA: Four minutes, come on. Skip INNA: Forty minutes. C-BAR: Head augmentation in China was nuanced, the little things. If you do not unambiguously clarify to the taxi driver exactly where you need, you can end up in holes. Skip INNA: Yoo…Right now I just want to show up and see myself inside there, that's all I’m interested in right now. C-INNA: We must reach the top five no matter what and from there we will see how we progress. INNA: Pray. COMING UP NEXT… TOM: Hear Israel, Lord our God, one Lord. Have mercy on us. Have mercy on me and let me...forgive me please. I must ask for forgiveness, Creator of the world, that today I did not put on a tefillin, that I had to get up early, go to the race. You stress me out in the morning, I don't wear tefillin. ADELE: I didn't pressure you this morning, you didn't remember it in the morning, you only remembered it this afternoon, don't tell me I am, don't blame me. INNA: Yoo, how he travels, what a Tibetan beast. Skip BAR: No, don't bother him, Inna, he realised. INNA: No, last time we said not to bully him and what happened? We arrived in Honolulu. Skip INNA: He says it's there, he seems to be pointing. BAR: Wow. INNA: Listen, my pressure gauge in my body, I'm afraid to describe it to you, I tell you, one more beat and my heart stops beating. I don't even want to think about being out of the race. Skip Yes, go. Go. Where? Tom, come, Tom. BAR: Wait, Inna, wait for me, mami, wait for me. RON SHAHAR: Adele and Tom. You are the couple who came third. TOM AND ADELE, THIRD PLACE TOM: Babe. What fun. RON SHAHAR: You are the third couple to reach the final five. Skip TOM: Cannon. ADELE: We will also be in the final. C-TOM: Amazing feeling towards the end that you really give the push. You deliver the goods and you actually end up in the top five, it's fun. And it really shows that we have a connection that actually this is where our youth comes from... C-ADELE: We really love, really love despite all the fights, we really love. Because if we didn't love, we would have dismantled the package a long time ago, a long time ago. None. C-TOM: Speak for yourself. RON SHAHAR: Inna and Bar. You are the couple that came in fourth place. Welcome to the final five. BAR AND INNA, FOURTH PLACE INNA: Wow. BAR: Ya Allah. INNA: Yoo. BAR: Congratulations, mami. INNA: Congratulations, mami. C-BAR: Me and Inna are currently aiming to stay in the top five, we are not looking at the million or the final three. Mine and Inna's strategy is to look exclusively at the next target and survive it. BAR: What a day, what a day. SPONSOR BREAK MOTI: Soda. Soda. Kapunka. Careful, careful. Another one! PUNDAK: Congratulations, good luck. C-PUNDAK: The Chinese shouts at us. Now we say to him, bro, congratulations. Falling already, falling already, falling already. MOTI: Holy shit, say holy, say it. MOTI: Buena, you don't know what you are, huh? C-MOTI: We went ahead, boom, drop an entire table. MOTI: I have no air in this, Idan, lift high. C-MOTI: We drop and a table is caught in the costume and it goes with us. Boom, drops more and we're happy. Skip C-PUNDAK: We finished this mission, got... C-MOTI: With love. C-PUNDAK: With love. Skip C-PUNDAK: And if it wasn't enough that we were last, we got a seven minute delay for all the plates we broke. MOTI; Ok, seven minutes, start glueing. OSNAT: Let's hope this is it, come on. Why did he stop us in hell? CARMIT: Here, here, maybe in there. C-OSNAT: He didn't stop for us in the right place so we didn't see markings, we didn't see anything, we said, we are wrong and then Carmit got out. Skip CARMIT: Folk dancing, walla. Is this the address? C-CARMIT: They didn't quite understand what it was about, but I decided to tell them what an opera building is. Skip C-CARMIT: They all pointed to the same building. And we realised that if everyone points the finger there, then it's there. OSNAT: Wow, an hour to wait. C-OSNAT: We arrive and see no one and then we are sure that...we are the last ones. We still have the waiting time, it's a really unpleasant feeling. OSNAT: We can sit and wait and they will arrive and enter before us. CARMIT: I really hope that...I really hope not, what can I tell you? C-OSNAT: We kind of tried to cheer up and get it together and say, come on, let's continue, let's do it properly, what happens, happens. PUNDAK AND MOTI, CURRENTLY IN LAST PLACE MOTI: Guanghuiguan. Skip MOTI: Don't give me one in the head, I'll give you two. I grew up in Petah Tikva, man. MOTI: Fast, fast, fast, go, go, go. What a day, what a day. You can still change the game, Idan. A stupid taxi versus a good taxi, can change it. The question is if the Yemenis were also here already, if Tom and Adele were here already. If the brothers were here already. CARMIT: What do you say? OSNAT: Waiting. CARMIT: There is time. Skip OSNAT: Another quarter of an hour, come on, I hope we'll get through it. C-OSNAT: We had already given up at this point. We felt that this is it, this is the end. The final fell out of our hands. MOTI: What a day, what a day. PUNDAK: So we are last. MOTI: Yes, seems that way. C-PUNDAK: We wanted to die. C-MOTI: So that's it, we already understood the game, we understood that we are last. C-PUNDAK: I'm already done in the taxi, I say, how did I lose “HaMerotz LaMillion” in our best leg performance of the race. C-MOTI: And then? C-PUNDAK: We told the driver, bro, leave you regrets, turn on the radio. C-MOTI: Put us music. MOTI: What a song, symbolising the end of the journey in the race. MOTI: We are going home today. In a good mood. I say to myself, what we have in life. Skip PUNDAK: Let's sing it to Ron Shahar. Skip C-CARMIT: We were realistic, we saw young people in front of us. We wanted to be optimistic. C-OSNAT: We knew that today we were flying home. Skip MOTI: Open the trunk, the trunk. Israel lives Skip Hello. Yangmei juice. Skip OSNAT: To life. CARMIT: To life. OSNAT: At your wedding, God willing. RON SHAHAR: Carmit and Ossie. You have now served your suspension penalty, which is extended by an hour because you arrived last yesterday. OSNAT: Right. RON SHAHAR: After the wait. Ossie and Carmit. You are the couple that came in fifth place. OSNAT AND CARMIT, FIFTH PLACE C-CARMIT: We were just overwhelmed. C-OSNAT: We were in shock. We didn't understand where it came from. We were sure that today we were going home. RON SHAHAR: Welcome to the final five. OSNAT: Wow, wow, God, thank you for this gift. C-OSNAT: We felt good. Every day that passed we were overwhelmed with ourselves and every day that passed we were proud of ourselves. From here we knew that we... C-CARMIT: Fly on. C-OSNAT: Moving on in a big way. OSNAT: Wow, with what pride I will come back to Ekron. No, no, you won't beat me because I don't get beat that fast PUNDAK: How are you. Yangmei juice. PUNDAK: To life. MOTI: To life. MOTI: Pundak and Moti, Moti and Pundak. PUNDAK: Moti and Pundak. RON SHAHAR: Pundak and Moti. Moti and Pundak. You are the last couple. RON SHAHAR: I'm sorry. For you, the race for a million is over. PUNDAK AND MOTI, ELIMINATED MOTI: Okay. RON SHAHAR: A missed opportunity? PUNDAK: Certainly, a big miss. MOTI: Yeah, big miss, that's for sure. PUNDAK: Big, huge miss. PUNDAK: Ossie, a 50-year-old woman with a broken arm and with a delay at the finish point overtook us. MOTI: What to do, not terrible. C-PUNDAK: We not only thought we would be part of the final five, C-MOTI: We thought we would be in the three… C-PUNDAK: We knew we would be in the final three. And we said... C-MOTI: Even in the final pair. C-PUNDAK: And it's not that we were given a task that we didn't fulfill, we did everything and more... C-MOTI: We did everything among the first places. C-PUNDAK: We did everything in the first places. RON SHAHAR: You could have done something different. PUNDAK: Yes. If five couples arrived before us we must have done something wrong and they were hours behind us also. MOTI: A matter of bad luck. PUNDAK: Bad luck, we did something wrong. MOTI: Unlucky, unlucky, Idan. We did, today we were 100 percent in all tasks, we left first everywhere, first, second, everywhere. PUNDAK: Except for the last mission, except for the last mission. MOTI: No, in the last mission because the taxi driver drove us away. PUNDAK: But this is "HaMerotz LaMillion", there is nothing to be done. C-MOTI: We are the best and we were very good, we are a very strong couple in this race and we deserved to be in the final. We had every moment of fun, we ran and were first and we did everything with humour and laughter and we went and came back, really fun. That's why I also take it with love, because we came with love and we go with love and we wish everyone success, truly, from the bottom of my heart. C-PUNDAK: That's for sure. RON SHAHAR: Moti and Pundak. It's hard for me to say this. MOTI: Not terrible. RON SHAHAR: You won't make it to the last five, but you still invested a lot of effort to reach this stage, so we won't let you leave empty-handed either. MOTI: You won...6,000 shekels. COURTESY OF… MOTI: Cannonball. RON SHAHAR: Every time you reached my Pit Stop I was happy to see you. PUNDAK: Us also. C?-MOTI: Everything is fine, take it with love. C-PUNDAK: I want to say that I was honoured to be Moti Lahav's partner in the race. I couldn't think of a better partner, maybe just except for a good-looking girl, at least I’d have a little niceness in the room. Skip RON SHAHAR: Love you guys. Love you too, with all my heart. C-PUNDAK: I will cry again. C-MOTI: Enough, don't cry. COMPLETED 30TH JULY 2022 Sorry I didn’t translate the Angry Proprietor’s ranting and raving, at first it was because, as someone who knows a bit of Chinese but not enough to effectively translate them myself, the subtitles were glossing over some nuances of the things he was saying in several cases, but later on it basically became just that I was too lazy to bother. There didn’t seem to be anything too out of the norm in there so just use your imagination I guess. I know we all want to give up on the season and toss it aside immediately after the latest boot, but have hope. There is still some good shit to be found here. Stay tuned, everyone….
