THE SIX REMAINING TEAMS MAKE THEIR WAY TO TANZANIA WHERE THEY MUST QUICKLY ADJUST TO NEW CULTURES, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 5," TUESDAY, AUG. 17 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

"Are You Sure This Is Safe" -- Six remaining teams fly from Cairo to Tanzania and must navigate through the local town to get their next clues, on THE AMAZING RACE 5, Tuesday, Aug. 17 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is the host of the series.

Harsh words are exchanged at the Cairo airport when one team physically blocks another team from getting through the doors into the terminal. Meanwhile, in hopes of getting ahead, two teams take a gamble with a flight that has an earlier connection than a flight that the rest of the pack of teams are taking. While one team gets into a tense argument with bargaining locals, another team takes a moment to enjoy where they are and bond with some of the local people. ?

TAXI CAB PROBLEMS PLAGUE SEVERAL TEAMS IN A CLOSE RACE TO THE AIRPORT, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 5," TUESDAY, AUG. 24 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

"I'm Going To Jail" -- Five teams remain and a cab ride to the airport becomes problematic for some teams as they battle to stay in the race, on THE AMAZING RACE 5, Tuesday, Aug. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is the host of the series.

One team gets a flat tire and realizes their cab does not have a spare tire, and another team has an oil problem with their cab. Both teams are left on the side of the road at the mercy of other teams who are literally passing them by. After a disagreement over money with a cab driver, one team is hauled to the local police station for questioning and are threatened with being thrown into jail. ?
