THE COMPETITION HEATS UP AS THE SEVEN REMAINING TEAMS MAKE THEIR WAY FROM RUSSIA TO EGYPT, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 5," TUESDAY, AUG. 3 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

"Are You Good At Puzzles" -- Seven teams make their way from the cold of Russia to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, on THE AMAZING RACE 5, Tuesday, Aug. 3 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is the host of the series.

At the mercy of a foreign cab driver, one team has trouble communicating where they need to go and miss a very critical flight. Meanwhile, while all the teams are waiting for a flight, one team makes a stealthy move in the middle of the night to abandon the pack of teams in order to advance. Once in Egypt, as one team attempts to complete a task, they find themselves lost on the Giza Plateau among the great pyramids. There they run into one of their rival teams, who they hope will bury the hatchet and actually help the lost duo. The Roadblock has teams forced to face their fears of dark and claustrophobic spaces, as they must descend an ancient shaft to a watery tomb. ?
