HAMEROTZ LAMILLION - Season 4 - Leg 1B I am at the site of the "Cluster" of the national water company "Mekorot". The site, named after Levy Eshkol, Israel's third prime minister, is part of the national water carrier, which "Mekorot" marks this year as the anniversary of its founding. From here, seven more teams will be launched in a few minutes for the biggest TV game in the world. Six teams have already secured their ticket to the first destination of the race and they are currently making their way to the “HaMoshava” Stadium in Petah Tikva. Vova and Alla. We did it. Daniel and Meiri. The Amazing Race! Miro! Shay and Shani. Yash, we're in The fucking Amazing Race! Irit and Sinai. ♪Ein Harod, let’s go Ein Harod, hey hey, both day and night Ein Harod.♪ Yochi and Linor. I'm don’t beli... Yo, I do not believe. Listen, Yo. And Tiltil and Mizrahi. From here, seven more Israeli teams will begin in a few minutes, and only six of them will win the first flight ticket of The Amazing Race. The seven teams are: Alexa and Raz, spouses. Sweetie, can you not sit so slouched? Because then I look really big next to you. Yes, yes, yes, yes, great, great, great. You're doing a great job, baby. I'm Alexa, I'm 21. I'm an international model. My name is Raz Zaltzerman, I am 28 years old from Tel Aviv, I work at the Diamond Exchange. Sweetheart. How beautiful you are. So… Enough, don’t start. How did we get to know each other? I saw her at a party, and then when she got home she looked at the 2,500 Friend Requests she was getting and sent me a message. I sent you a message? No, you confirmed ... Ah, you confirmed me and I sent a message. Totally love being together, really. We are constantly together. Even when he goes out with friends I come, because they’re sick of me. It seems to me. It seems to me. My sweetheart wasn’t with me when I flew to Miami, because I work there. And every time I was sad then I would sleep with the teddy bear, it’s really cute. I wanted bigger, but, you know. We're entering a competition here like we know what to expect, but we do not know what to expect. I've had nightmares for two weeks. Every night I dream of a different task. Every day she wakes up in the morning going, “there will be leeches, there will be snakes.” Yes it’ll strengthen our bond. The process will be difficult, we will shout a lot and we will be impatient, we will go crazy there. I'm sure everyone says we'll win and that's it. Obviously everyone says. But we really will win. Yafa and Boaz, mother and son. Hello. Say, how do I look? Wait, my glasses slipped. just a minute. Straighten up, straighten out your back. I'm a girl ... well, come on. Must I say? What should I say, tell them? Boaz what age should I say? Say something fake, say… What, I can’t, it’ll be on TV, I can’t…Everyone will know Age: (X / 3.75)² Okay, my age is 57. Hi, I'm Boaz, I'm 27, I live in Kiryat Ono. We moved a bit to Herzliya and such, but like all the… Boaz, I’m holding back terribly, you need to talk less. It's a chrysanthemum. Chrysanthemum, right. You have hobbies, right? Yes, I have real hobbies. She likes to solve crossword puzzles. Yes. She loves to play the flute. ♪The spirit…♪ She has much greater general knowledge than me, so she knaws more, and I will say… ‘Knows’, Boaz, ‘knows’. [Correcting pronunciation] All right. She’ll try to ... as if to change, not to change your mind, not to farce it, but as if to pronounce, you will hear… “Force”, Boaz, “force”. ‘L’ before that, “force”. [Correcting pronunciation] “Furce”. No, because of the ‘K’, the emphasis on the ‘L’ is lowered. “Force”. I thunk we’ll win, I thunk it… “I think”, Boaz, “I think”. [Correcting pronunciation] How many times have I told you before, “I think”. Yes, Avshalom Kor, thank you. [Name of an Israeli linguist] “I think”, say it now “I think”. “I think”, Boaz, “I think”. The feeling that this experience, should be done to the end because it’s once in a lifetime. ♪Hup, hup, hup, it's terribly happy it happened, it happened not on the moon.♪ I want to get to the finals to make the most of the experience. Because every day you’re in the race you do more crazy experiences, in my opinion, crazy, amazing, amazing. The only thing that scares me is to mess up. Adi and Shay, twins. I think we are similar on the left, on the right. In profile. My right side and your left side. Like so? I'm Adi Attoun, Shay's twin brother. I'm older, by eight minutes. I stayed for a bit in Mom's womb, that made me better than him, it gave more life advice. All right, such self-love. Why why why. Eight. Well? Come on, Adi. Do it. I have no power. I'm the smart twin and he's the pretty stupid twin. I am humble and dead set on myself. [Mocking] I use hand movements and… My muscle… What the? Adi can live in a pigsty. [Mocking] Adi can… Stick with it, c’mon… I have no power. Let’s go! Everyone has the division of roles in their relationship. What, are you serious? Come here, where are you going? He does everything. Of course I do everything. Adi loves that things are done for him, that he’s taken care of, and then he arrives at the end like this and shows presence. At least I'm getting there. Hope you get to the later stages as well. We’ll get there. We’ll get there. When you get there. I will get there for sure. Come on, Adi, go up. I seem to be portrayed as the evil twin, but overall I'm more, a little more dominant, I'm not a bad person. Adi cuts corners, Adi’s a sweetie like that, such a fuzzball. You dropped your masculinity, here. Take the masculinity, dude. Thanks bro. Take your masculinity back. Me and Adi forever. We argue, argue, argue, and after five minutes we make up. Up high. Up high. Then we talk and as if it’s normal. And everything is fine. I know who you are, I know how you will behave in a situation that will happen, how you will talk to me, how you will act. I know everything, I have the script in my head now. I don’t think so, I don’t think so. That's why I won’t be hurt either. I will be there to support him, in my own way. I'll yell at him, obviously, but to spur him on. If we are together one hundred percent, no one can overtake us. Gal and Liel, an engaged couple. I'm Gal. I'm Liel. And we're engaged. Whenever I am asked I say ... How long have you been together? Gross or net? Net is two years and another year and a half, it's three and a half. Mama! No… It’s… The accountant's wife. How do you figure that? I am always confused between gross and net. No. How did you say two and a half years and another year and a half three and a half? It's four. Four. No, we've been together for more than four years. There was a year and a half, two years of being apart, and now two years and a bit. In short, we already know each other full time… I think. Four years. Wow what a beauty. My best friends knew I had a "crush" on her. And they would tell me, leave her, Gal, there's no way she's even looking at you. They would always lower their confidence and there were, they’re shocked to this day, I think, that we’re together. I proposed marriage to her on my birthday. So I did it upside-down like this. Tell her why, why on your birthday? Because… It’s the most beautiful gift I could have received. For my birthday and my life. Next time… It will not help you… No, you need to understand it won’t help you, now you really made me nervous that this conversation is over. I had an argument with her yesterday, so she's now she’s giving it back to me. We fought yesterday, we fought yesterday, we fought this morning. All is well. I did not fight with you this morning. Every morning I fight with you. Liel has a problem of right and left. In navigation I’m on my face. He told me that in the race I should write it like, here right, here left. We will do everything in the race. First of all, for her I will do. He will do everything in the race. He's carrying my bag. No, I… He will carry me. For her I will do anything, really. That's why they invented The Amazing Race, to finance a wedding. Kitschy murder came out. Hila and Inbal, cousins. ♪Rabbi Shimon…♪ ♪Bar Yochai…♪ We are coastal Moroccans. I am Inbal, you call me Tzuki [TZUKI] and I call you Huti. [HUTI] Right. Huti because you are as thin and tall and hot, and from the age of 14 this is what I call you. And Tzuki I call you because you're like a cliff (Tzuk). Tall. Right. Mountainous. Dry as the Negev Desert. Dry as the Negev Desert. Mount, rock, cliff. We are constantly in the Kibbutz of the 36 righteous, prostrating and all… We prostrate? Where do we prostrate ourselves? Prostrate, pray, we don’t prostrate. This is called prostrating. Success to us all Amen. And may it therefore be only good. Amen and amen. Deep down, Rabbi Meir Baal Hanes, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, all who we were, Rabbi Meir Baal Hanes. Baba Sali. Where are sheep slaughtered? Tzuki. Tzuki, get down already! How much can you shout? So shameful. All the neighbors can see you. Tzuki need three things: Food, water and compliments, it won’t help. It seems to me the compliments come first. How beautiful you are. The truth is, you're killing it today. I define our friendships as like a husband and wife. Just like that. I'm the husband and she's the wife, really. Tzuki is more sensitive and I am more, you know, more superficial, colder, less delving into things, less delving now into what hurts, what it says. Don’t shout like that anymore. What do you want? Sit in the car, wait. Then we’ll fight like a husband and wife. As if we’re yelling at each other and arguing. So how are we good friends if we don’t get along? Because that's what makes us beautiful, ‘cus it's not boring. If it was just good, it would be boring. In the race I think we will bring a lot of joy, a lot of good energy, fire in our eyes. I'm swear to God. We will not fly first. I know that nothing can stop us. There are no restrictions in the race. Everything is done. Everything, everything, everything. Wow, what a speech, Hut. I love to speak, right? Roni and Yael, sisters. So I'm Roni Duani. It's embarrassing. Really, to talk about yourself. I am a singer and decided to go on the race and go through this experience with my one and only amazing sister. And the best. And the best. I'm Yael, I'm 32. My sister. Your sister. Hi. Hi, hi. The headphones, the headphones. Wait. The dynamics between us, like this, it has always been like this, I was the big sister and she was the little one. Say what? In recent years she has become the teenage girl and I am the mother who can’t control the teenage girl. Bye, ciao. When we argue or something like that she doesn’t let me talk. She goes into a trance, and I cannot speak. Listen for a moment, listen for a moment. OK I got it. I understand. I understand, I understand your position, let's move on. How much do I have to pay you to wear the cheerleading clothes now? Nothing. I actually wanted to. I kind of feel like we're going back to the time we lived together. Yo, do you know what that reminded me of? What? Now we each are married and we each have our own life, and suddenly going back and being 24/7 with each other is something we haven’t done in a very long time. Shall we sing a number with the audience? Do you sing a number with the audience? Now we have come to the race and there will be some such new structure of the relationship, of the partnership, and we will see what comes out of it. I mean, I'm sure we, it’s going to be different, hope for the best. What we bring is excitement, it’s not something that can be ignored and moved aside. They will see me cry, they will see us nervous, they will see everything. We’ll spend a lot of time together and we need to cooperate. I go for everything. All the way, as strong as possible. From here you can get off. And Tom and Uriel, good friends. Lily, are you bringing a razor? Obviously I’m bringing… Some concealer, some bronzer, stuff, face stuff. I didn’t bring spray. I brought products, but less. Less. Small facial stuff, small spray. I am Uriel Yekutiel, 26 years old from Tel Aviv. Down, spin, spin, up. And I am an actor, a dancer, a creative artist. So I'm Tom. Tom what? I'm Tom Baum. What are you doing these days? I've been working for MTV for two years now. Isn’t this her? Isn’t this Kylie? No, this is not Kylie. We are the best of friends… Sisters. We’re best friends. In short, then, Lily, I do not know what to tell you. Lily. Lily and Liliana. Lily, Liliana. There are also others like, Lily, Lillian, Liliana, Lil. Hannah Leslau if she was skinny. Lookalike, there. I’m in love with his charisma. He has a sense of humor. It's a bit like peppers like that, a little oriental like that, or whatever from my house. Oriental! I ask you. Guys, I'm half Yemeni, half Afghan. One, Lily, two. Two. I look at Uriel, I learn, I, he inspires me. He knows how to let go of things. Something’s not good, something’s good, come on, tak, the next thing. I don’t. I know how to linger and get stressed. This is something I'm amazing at. I chose a great partner for the race. For new people who do not live in Tel Aviv, people who have not seen figures like us, it will be interesting to see us. It will be the most conspicuous thing people see, that we will be the "gays." It will be hard for them to swallow, but I think very soon they will connect with us. Obviously. If I fly first… Leave, take the luggage. Leaving the country. Everything I did is gone. Leaving the country, gone, I am not seen here anymore. Vanity! What vanity. Tonight everything is about to be revealed. At the end of this section of the race the teams will find out that they are not alone. For the first time, all the teams will meet and they will leap together towards the first destination in the world. This is going to be a particularly competitive journey in a surprising season, in the end only one team will win a million shekels and the title of the winning team of the season. It's time to jump into The Amazing Race. Welcome to the fourth season of The Amazing Race. I see you're a little excited, rightly so. You will immediately embark on a once in a lifetime experience. I am shocked. The Amazing Race will challenge you, surprise you and take you to the limit. You will start here, in Israel, but finish on the other side of the world. The team who reaches the Finish Line first will take home a million shekels. Wow, wow, wow. And the title of the winning team of the fourth season. With God's help. With the help of God, with the help of God. So I figured, okay, we're in The Amazing Race. It's a shock. It was shocking. For me at least. It’s Shocko-Melon. It’s Shocko-Melon. You are standing here right now as seven teams, but one team will not board the flight to the first destination in the world. How much I believed and knew it would not be us. Yes. I was scared, I said, what an embarrassment if you went home. Is there determination? Huh, yes? You're already saying, I'm one of seven. The ratio, I mean, 1:7 is a little less than 20 percent. Do your best not to be this team. It couldn’t be that only six teams went abroad and that's it, it's The Amazing Race. There has never been such a thing ever. When I give the signal the game will start, you will run to your bags and from there to the pool, where the first clue awaits you. I wish you all a strong race, a fast race, but do me a favor, race safe. Ready? Yes! The world is waiting for you. Lily… Ready. And the heart, boom boom boom boom boom, and I’m like, sweetie! Go! Run! Come on, come on. C'mon C'mon. Fire in the eyes! You were like a bubbling volcano, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling… And the lava like that came out of the volcano, but what came out. Lily, come on! Uriel and I run first, between all the teams. It was a shock. Come Come. Bam, bam, bam, bam, and I couldn’t see with my eyes. Grab the clue. Route Info, the race begins. I can’t believe it! You must ride on the waters of the reservoir and collect puzzle pieces floating in it. OK. This huge reservoir is a transit station for the waters from the Sea of Galilee to the home of each and every one of us. On the way to us, the water is filtered to drinking water at an international quality level. The teams must enter the water reservoir, and before racing out into the world they will have to sail on it. They have to row together and look, with the help of a given key, for nine pieces of a puzzle that are scattered in the reservoir and make up a picture of the globe logo of The Amazing Race. Their key is only able to open nine locks out of the 70 scattered in the reservoir. Only teams who manage to put the puzzle together will receive the next clue in exchange for the giant version. Mommy. Come on, Tzuki. Get on it, come on. Be careful, smoothly. On your belly. Wait. Come on. Wow, it's huge. I’m in shock. We saw a huge water reservoir. Giant. Crazy, huge. Wow, there's a section full of parts. It's time for sailing now. And I said to him, yo, sweetie, God. Come on, sweetie, come on. We realized it was going to be really hard. One, two. Strong. We are against the wind, no big deal. One, two. This would have seemed like an impossible task. To paddle, and keep balance, and collect pieces, go back to shore, put together a puzzle. I said, is this the first mission? What?! Just left. Strong to the left. Beautiful, Tom-ix. Honey! We had to paddle. Paddle. And find pieces of a puzzle floating on the water. Beautiful. Stop, reach out. Okay, I got it. Wait. Yes? Yes! Take out the key first, take it out! It snapped open. Go ahead, I'll be on it. Now what's the catch? Our key fits into only some of the locks. In total we needed nine. Nine parts. Go… Go. I got leg cramps. In my life I never thought that would happen. Gimme your hand now. Yo. Sweetheart, come on, you gotta get back. It is, for me, a delusion about myself that I am like, the boy from Tel Aviv, that I didn’t come out of Tel Aviv alive, from my cold America, doing tasks. To me, a shock. Three, four, hoppa. ♪No, no, you will not defeat me.♪ Come on, come on, go, go, go. Go, go, go. Well, give it a try. Try, yeah. Now the race begins. Nothing else matters. Less than first place I do not want to hear about it at all. We will not fall. It doesn’t open. Next, new one. Hello, hello, on the raft. Ack! You scratched me. Sorry, sweetheart Barbie and Ken. Barbie and Ken. Taken right out of a movie. It really is like a movie come to life. She, whatever she looks like, is perfect. She's a doll, she looks like a doll. But he, too, is a knockout. What’s this, sweetheart, it’s as if you were born on a kayak. So big. Sweetie. Sweetie, we'll clean you up here. You guys, they're cute, we'm dying for them, but… They cling to each other so much. Come on… Sweetie, what if I’m in the back like this? You see? The gym was useful. It's not just blonde, you brought "Sports Illustrated". What, what, what, what going down here? She comes in with a whole red swimsuit, like this… Come, ran in like this, I said, wow, what's going on here? How can I be focused? No, what is it? She got caught my eye, really. Did you open it? No. Sweetie, come on. Come on. I’m with you, strong. No, I’m being complimentary, the matter of the eyes, it's not a matter of ... The matter of looking and such. What? Don’t upset me. What did I do? I saw. I did not do anything. I saw. Gal, no, enough, hey, c’mon. What? You act complimentary, you have fun, so why did you cross the line? You always told me to be complimentary. ‘Complimentary’ is crossing the line. Why? My dear, come on, come on, calm down. Well, enough, stop. So enough, then understand, okay. What? But we kept going. So go ahead. That's it, enough. Hai hup, together. Can you come down and help? We collected a full set of parts and I said, come on, let's go assemble, see what's missing and if so, we'll just start opening things up. Careful. It's terribly slippery. Wait, Roni, take a look, start from the edge. OK. We started building, we started from the edge and then letters, and it looked really, really easy. Okay, Yael, we're on track. The image on the pieces of the puzzle is The Amazing Race. Move for a moment. We’re missing letters. Come on, get out. It's the bottom. Come on, they have a lot. Sweetie, leave it alone. Move it. What are we missing? We need a corner. We were missing just a few parts, we went back to the water one more time. Where are the corners and which did we not check? Come on, let's look for more. Come on. Well, we're in good shape, Babu. I hope. Here's another one. Bring me it. We’ll bring as many parts as possible. Bring it to me, bring it to me, bring it to me already. Hold on, hold on. We said, collect as many parts as possible. After all, if we go in and out, go in and out, we'll really get tired because it's ... to sail is very hard. Yes. It opened? Yes. Yo, that's a letter. Yes. Yes. Look at how many parts you have. You're finishing the job. Come on, go already, go already. Come on. Go, go, go there, go. New one. Come on, and one. And two. We are first. Go already, do not open them here, go already. Come on, start at the corner. Slowly, slowly. Move, move. It's slippery, it's slippery. Don’t go over it. Good, Tzuki. Yo, I don’t believe it. There's a task we've finished. Yes! Come on, come on, Tzuki. Route Info. As part of the jubilee celebrations for one of the important projects of the State of Israel, the national water carrier, together you must become a human water carrier. One of the important projects of the State of Israel is the national carrier, the main water artery from the Sea of Galilee to the Negev Desert, a huge infrastructure for transporting water 130 km long. Since its operation, it has been able to supply water regularly throughout the State of Israel. In the next task, the teams will have to function as a human water carrier and transfer reservoir water to the filtration facility. Each team will be given a hollow tube that they will have to fill with reservoir water. The tube will need to be held and sealed with one hand by each team member on each side of the tube. With the full tube they will be able to walk along the path to the filtration facility. While walking, the teams will need to maintain enough water in the tube to fill two glasses. Only teams who fill two glasses of water in full will receive from the director of the Jordan Valley region and the national carrier, Yossi Shimaya, the next clue plus two glasses of clear and filtered water. You’re welcome. Cheers. Come on, we're first! Poison in the eyes! [Slang: Go for it!] This is the first task in The Amazing Race. Finished the first task in The Amazing Race… In first. No, it's… First. Finished the task, first task first in The Amazing Race… It's the peak of excitement. Really. That being said, I started The Amazing Race on the right foot. Come on, Hut. Come on, Huti, believe in your strength. God is with you, Huti. Amen, amen. Come on, come on, Huti. Straight, straight. No, no, no, go hard on your side. Straight, straight. Exactly, exactly. Strong on your side. What is this? No, on my side. Well don’t you see? Here, this, this, here. Here, well. You are 100% of this, Boaz. You're really 100%, I'm just cheering. Boaz sat in the front, he was the captain of the raft, and I sat in the back. I was missing the hat. Yes. Come on, sit in the middle, or we'll turn over. I'm sitting on the side. In the middle, like that. But I'm not going. Where are you going? Where? Come on, go. Beautiful, do it up high, you see. Come on. Boaz, you're a king. There is no better competitor than you. Come on, Shay. You need to straighten up but, we need to go straight there, yeah. We’re not going at the same pace, because of that. Adi, we're moving away from it! Yo, I have no power. Hai-hup. What's up? What's new? Let’s go! Hai-hup. Dude, there is no way the girls were successful. No way. The Duani sisters, wow, bro, squadron 12. Like that. Squadron 12. Rowing, rock it, rock it. Wow, crazy. Hai-hup. Hai-hup. Yes. And catch him, we’ll get something on him. Bring it, wait. Hoppa. Turn it around? No. What are you missing? Corners. What? Corners. "Roni Soup" and "Yael Du", what skin they have. It's like that here. Mommy! The eyebrow is here. Tense. Stretching. I'm dying to have it like this. Wow, fan on so many levels. My dream. A dream. One, two. One, two. Yael, I played with her in the "Who Dreamed" stage play. One, two. I was her son. ♪Bab al-Wad, in the way please protect…♪ This is the musical about Rabin's life. Rabin. I was "at the pinnacle of my life." Take them out. Lillian, this is the race. It's there. Take a corner. It's here. Come on, sweetie. It's going there. It sure is good. All right. Yes! Sweetheart. I love you. Come on. Thanks, Jessie. Thank you. Come on. You must fill the tube with water from the reservoir and transfer it to the filtration pool. Where is Yossi Shemaiah? Then you realize you have another task after. You're in The Amazing Race. We thought there would be a lunch break. Lunch break. Pita with chocolate. Shade. Chickpeas and pickles, anything. No. Come on. Come on, follow the arrow. Come to the left. Well, come on, let's take the water, come on, let's, let's start. Wait, look for a minute, two hands block the ends and water mustn’t come out. It is forbidden to ... hold it with both hands, only with one hand. Block it. Fill it, fill it. Block. Filled it. This is, just one hand, Tzuki. I blocked it, I blocked it. We had to take the clear tube, block it tight. Need to block the opening of the tube so that no water spills on you. Pick it up. Then lift it to a height and keep the water out. Come on. Go straight, what are you doing? Wait, slowly. If you do not go at my speed, it’ll spill. OK. Slowly. It’s good. Slowly. The filter pool there, at the end. Oy. And suddenly we saw in the distance, we saw where we needed to go, we saw that it was a crazy distance. Lift up if it spills for you, lift. Lift if it spills for you. But I have water leaking. So close like that. Come on, here, just a bit more, again. Come on. We do not have enough water. Fill it until it’s full to the brim. Is that important? Yes, it’s very important. We also really wanted the tube to be full to the brim. As if we didn’t lift, half of it spilled, let's just go with the half. Because we know we have to walk a lot and have no idea how much water we need to move. We were stressed, will that be enough? Will it not be enough? Up, up. Go up, bring it up, your hand, that's it. But all… Come on. But all the water comes out. Why can't you hold the water? No, I can not at that height. Come, a bit more, a bit more. Wow, wow, wow. Yow, I don’t believe it. Tzuki, you must learn this technique. Well, what's the problem? And pick it up. Come on. Pick it up. Hold it well in the first place. I understand. Beauty. Exactly, come on. It's the bottom. No. Put it aside, do not put it all up here with me, Adi, c’mon. I'm more of a crossword and sudoku type, less of a jigsaw puzzle. No, no, reverse, Adi. It doesn’t fit. What doesn’t fit? It doesn’t fit.
