The athletes are crossing the Indian Ocean to their next destination – the Indonesian island of Sumbawa.
There, in Pemlong village, they face their toughest challenge yet, the insane sport of water buffalo racing. They must drive their team across a paddy field, over a jump and towards a target of a sacred magical doll.
With ground to make up, Jarvis wants to get stuck in, and amazingly, after just a morning’s primer, trainer Jamek lets him take a heart-pumping ride through the paddy field.
Ed’s pentathlete skill with horses gives him confidence with the buffalo, while Joey inadvertently picks two of the livelier beasts. Murray gets a couple of crazy animals and Wole is feeling nervous around the wild beasts.
