The newlyweds left Kuala Lumpur first, then rushed to make their connecting flight in Singapore, arriving in Colombo first.
They made it to the Gangaramaya Temple first, but quickly found out they had to wait until the temple opened several hours later at 5:45 a.m. That allowed all six teams on the direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to catch up.
Once each team member was blessed by Buddha monks, they made their way by train to King Coconut Stand in Galle, Sri Lanka, to receive their next clue.
That meant the first seven teams were on the same train together, which allowed the country singers, Jennifer Wayne and Caroline Cutbirth, to reveal their fascination for The Cowboys.
“We like to be near the cowboys because they’re magical,” Cutbirth said. “Any of the magical powers we can get, we’re trying to rub it off on us.
“They’re the coolest guys on the planet. We were destined to be best friends.”
The coconut stand revealed only a clue to the leg’s Detour, which allowed the teams the option of either fishing handling a complicated local dance that included spinning plates. The McCoys opted for fishing.
“The locals give you a fishing pole and a bag,” Cord said. “You actually had to go out there and swim out in the ocean and climb up on a pole that’s got a little triangle that you sit on and hook your feet in and catch your fish and put it in your bag.”
