The Amazing Race (2001) s34e01 Episode Script

Many Firsts But Don't Be Last

This is Munich, Germany
where 12 new teams
are headed to the Amazing Race
starting line,
Use those long legs, bae.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
- We are Team Miami in the house.
- Miami.
"Raised on croquetas."
We've been together 13 years,
and we've been married
six of those years.
I am a professional dancer.
I am currently
on tour with Pitbull.
And I am a firefighter.
I've been a firefighter
for 12 years.
We are grateful
for this opportunity,
and we're gonna,
you know, kick some butt.
Hey, hey, hey, hey!
All right,
what's winning so far?
Big Brother or this?
Yeah, yeah. Come on.
Are you kidding me? Fresh air?
Get out of here.
We met on the reality TV show
Big Brother,
and we've been dating
for the past eight months.
Claire is the smartest girl
I've ever met.
I work in software and tech.
I do machine learning.
You're the brains
of the operation.
Yeah. You're the muscle.
It does concern me a little bit
if I'm the muscle.
That is, that is true.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
Wait, I'm sorry.
Are we going down?
Is there no seat belt?!
Holy crap.
We are doing
The Amazing freaking Race.
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go.
Go, go, go. Go, go, go, go, go.
I would like to officially
welcome you
to the start of your Amazing
Race here in Munich, Germany.
A lot of history here.
This is home
to the largest beer festival
in the world, Oktoberfest.
And you are about to be part
of some Munich history
when you take part in this race.
We have highly
competitive people here.
Rex, Tim,
you guys know about competition?
For those of you who don't know,
I was a head coach
in the National Football League
for eight years
Six with the New York Jets,
two with the Buffalo Bills.
I'm Tim Mann.
I'm a probation officer
for the state of Tennessee.
So I got paired up
with Rex on the golf course.
We golfed together and became
good friends after that.
I truly believe
we can win this race.
Look, I-I thought my team
was gonna win the Super Bowl
with the Jets.
So maybe it ain't gonna happen.
No, I'm just kidding.
But I truly think we can.
We're Team T-Rex.
This dinosaur is gonna
devour the competition.
I'm not used to seeing
you without the headset on.
Are you gonna be
barking out orders to people?
- This guy right here, for sure.
- Just me.
- I'm Abby.
- I'm Will.
I-I see you found it very
difficult to contain yourself.
We've been watching this
since we met.
We've known each other
for 20 years.
We've been dating
for eight of those.
We're high school sweethearts.
It can be hard to get
a word in with Abby, but
It is a dream of ours
to be on the show,
and it's gonna be awesome
to run a race with this girl,
who's so passionate
about everything.
Now, I know you both
have got some dance moves.
Um, my name is Quinton, and
- I'm Mattie.
- And we are both former, um, NFL cheerleaders.
For the Los Angeles Rams, baby.
For the Los Angeles Rams, baby.
I met this lovely girl.
She was my captain.
And we've been
best friends ever since.
- - Awesome.
- All right.
- Let's talk about the sisters.
- An amazing story.
I'm Molly. This is Emily.
And we are
identical twin sisters.
We just met one year ago.
We were adopted from South Korea
and separated at birth.
Molly was adopted to
a Jewish family in Florida,
and I was adopted to
a Jewish family in Pennsylvania.
We grew up not knowing
that one another existed.
And as adults,
discovered one another when
my daughter took a DNA test.
Being on the Race
gives us a unique opportunity
to make up for 36 lost years.
How amazing that you get
this opportunity together?
- Yeah. This is truly a gift.
- Yeah.
My dad and I are immigrants.
Which is, I mean, I don't know
if you can tell
- where we're from
- We're from Jamaica.
but we are from Jamaica.
We've always traveled
- vicariously through Amazing Race.
- Yeah. Yeah.
- Now we're doing it on The Amazing Race.
- On The Amazing Race. Yeah.
- -I love it.
- Yeah.
Looking forward to learning
more about all of you
along the way, but right now
we have a race to get started.
There are a lot of
firsts on this race.
This is the first time ever
that we have started
outside the United States.
The other thing that's new
and different about this race
is that you can
complete the challenges
on this first leg of the race
in any order that you want to.
It's called the Scramble.
The Scramble. That's something
different where I was excited.
-I was like, "Let's do this." Bring it.
-Yeah, I was so excited.
The other thing you should know
is, for the first time
in Amazing Race history, there
are no non-elimination legs.
Okay. We got to be on our A-game
- every single time.
- Every single leg. Yeah.
If you arrive last,
you will be eliminated.
- This is do-or-die, you know?
- Yeah.
Because there is
no other chance.
When I say go,
you can run around the fountain
and go over to your bags.
On top of your bags,
you'll see an envelope.
Inside the envelope
are three addresses
for the challenges
that you need to complete.
You can complete those
challenges in any order you want.
When you do, you will have
the clues you need
to find me at the Pit Stop.
Now, you're gonna be making
your way around Munich
in one of the cars that's
parked in the lot over there.
Is everybody ready to race?
The world is waiting for you.
Good luck.
Travel safe.
Let's go!
Here we go.
I'm ready, let's go.
- My God.
- Go.
- Love and light.
- Route Info.
"Get ready to scramble."
"Use the map in your car
to drive to each challenge
- "in any order you wish"
- Okay.
"to find your clues."
"The challenge locations
are Roll at Luitpoldpark."
"Saw at Biergarten Seehaus."
"Smash at
Augustiner-Keller Biergarten."
This is arguably the tastiest
beverage on the planet.
Ice-cold beer The number
one ingredient at Oktoberfest.
This Scramble
requires teams to complete
three Oktoberfest-inspired
Roll a beer keg
through an obstacle course
in under one minute.
Saw through a log.
And smash
an enormous block of ice.
Once complete,
they'll have the three parts
of a clue they need
to find me at the Pit Stop.
We don't know what
the challenges entail.
It just tells us where it is,
and then we should get
our clues when we get there.
- All right.
- Let's go.
Scramble was mind-blowing.
Now you have to decide what
order you're going to things.
- Go. Go.
- Let's do this, baby.
I am not generally
a patient person.
So when I identified
looking at the map, I'm like,
"Let's just go right now.
"'Cause I can get us there.
We'll get there fast."
All right, let's do it.
Yeah. Let's think about this
before making a decision.
- Can you help us find some locations?
- Yeah, of course.
We're trying to find
these three locations.
If you can help us
mark it on our map,
we would love you forever.
We had a strategy, and it was
asking for all these
extensive directions
to all these
different locations.
German is so fun.
So, Luitpoldpark is right there?
We got directions
to all three of those places,
and then we got
further directions
on how to travel
to those places.
We're Asian kids.
You know, we're overachievers.
Like, all we do is study.
So we're like,
"how do we get
extra credit on this race?"
Okay, so that's the exact place
of number one.
Luitpoldpark, right here.
Right here. Look, look, look.
It's right there.
- This one? Okay.
- Circle that, yeah.
Can you look this up for us?
Our strategy is find out where
these locations are on a map.
We don't want to have to stop
and ask for more directions.
All right, Claire, what's your
stress level right now?
Once we get out,
I'll feel better.
This is crazy!
Any-any-any order
you-you want to go in..
We're on The Amazing Race!
Okay, so we're here.
Phil's always
at a nice scenic spot,
so I figured this one
is closest to the river.
The Pit Stop
might be somewhere nearby,
so let's save that for last.
- We're going to Smash first.
- Smash?
Here we go.
And then we're gonna do, um
Biergarten Seehaus
to Luitpoldpark.
Molly, we're
on The Amazing Race!
So now let's see what we can do.
- All right, - we're going to Roll.
- We picked Roll first
because that was the first one
that we found.
We just were like,
"All right, go for it."
Let me just
figure out where we are.
- I know this is beside the point, but your hair is so cool.
- Yeah.
You're so wonderful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
We're from Los Angeles.
- Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- Cool.
Babe, you're gonna make a right.
We got to do them
in different orders.
- Yeah. Definitely.
- Whatever order we choose.
- Definitely.
- Man. That's a game changer.
We don't know how many teams
- are in front of us right now.
- Yeah.
And we're just, we're just
trying to get on the road
- and get going.
- Yeah.
Thank you so much.
- Thank you, thank you
- Of course. Good luck.
Are we the last to leave?
Yes, we are.
But slow and steady wins
the race on The Amazing Race.
Breaking news.
This just in. Scramble.
They give us all three addresses
and we just go
in whatever order we want.
You know, German is such
a fun language, you know?
Like, say, like,
butterfly in Spanish,
it's mariposa. In French,
it's le papillon.
In-in German, you know
what it is? It's Schmetterling.
Nina and I met on a dating app,
and we've been together
for four years.
- We recently got engaged.
- We did.
We're so different. I mean
Aastha is very spiritual.
-She grew up Hindu.
- I've meditated - two hours a day
for the past ten years.
That keeps me focused.
I'm probably gonna
skip over things accidentally,
but Aastha's going
to be able to slow us down,
and then lead
us to the finish line.
We're going to Luitpoldpark.
Luitpoldpark? All right.
We lived here before.
I was stationed here.
Member of
the United States Army.
Michael and I are
both active duty military.
Air Force and Army.
The active duty part,
there's a great deal of family
and personal sacrifice.
We only see each other
once or twice per year.
The ultimate goal
is just to have fun
and just reconnect
with each other.
Park it, right here.
Park it, right here. Right here.
- It's out here.
- It said "Roll."
- Red and yellow, right here, right?
- Look for "Roll."
- Hey, found something.
- I see it. I see it.
"Roll a beer keg
through the slalom course.
"Cross the finish line
before the clock runs out
to receive a piece
of the Pit Stop clue."
Let's go.
I see a sign.
- Hello!
- Hello.
Up, up, up, up.
I got to go run down there.
He's gonna run back.
In less than 55 seconds.
All right.
Come on, Marcus.
Come on, Marcus.
I was just like, "Screw that hay
bale. We're just going over it."
It's not good.
How would you ever think that
that was the right thing to do?
Let me just toss this bad boy.
It's an obstacle course
for a reason.
We'll try it again.
I'm centering myself
on my breath
and focusing on
remembering why I'm here,
who I am,
and my power and my strength.
Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go.
We have known
each other for eight years,
and we're actually coming up
on our third-year anniversary.
We work together
as motivational speakers.
We go to schools
and we help students realize
that they are important
and that they matter.
And I must say, Dom has a fire
that most people do not have.
It's just this internal flame
that just, ooh, gets really hot.
- And Yes.
- Tends to burn a little bit.
- I-Is this it? "Kleinhesselohe."
- Yep.
- Yep, that's it. Yeah.
- Okay. "Seehaus."
"Biergarten." Come on,
come on, let's do this.
- Okay. Okay.
- Yes.
- God.
- Okay.
- L L
- Love and light.
- Love and light. Okay. Go.
- Here, here, here.
"Saw completely through a log
to the music of Bavaria.
"Then bring the cut end
of your log to the farmer,
who will hand you
a piece of the Pit Stop clue."
- Take the saw. Take the
- Okay. Okay.
- Give me a kiss.
- Thank you. Danke.
Thank you. Danke.
- We're gonna just crush it. Let's do it.
- Okay.
Grab that side.
We're gonna put the saw right
here, and then this, it's all
It's a teamwork motion, okay?
So, look, look.
We're gonna do this.
- Back and forth, back and forth, okay?
- Okay, got it.
Until the whole thing's done.
Teamwork. Pull.
You got to pull. Pull.
We had to saw off
a really thick piece of log.
We don't stop.
This is a workout.
I love a good workout.
We got to go up and down
in 55 seconds.
- Let's go, let's go, let's go!
- Come on.
You've done it! Fantastic!
This is for you, okay?
All right. "To cross
-They'll add up and be a full sentence.
-Yeah. Yeah.
I haven't worked out
in nearly two months,
'cause I was in the field,
sleeping on a tank.
We are making an assumption
that the Pit Stop
is gonna be near the park.
We're gonna go to the closest
one, then the farthest one,
then the park where-where we
think the Pit Stop is gonna be.
If we can ever get started going
in the right direction,
we'll be okay.
- Here we go.
- The good teams don't worry about the other teams, Rex.
Yeah, who-who told you that?
- We're gonna roll.
- We're gonna roll.
Okay. Got it.
I hope it's a dance challenge.
I am a dance studio owner
in one of the largest Latin
dance companies in Los Angeles.
We first partnered up
four years ago.
She was the professional,
I was the amateur.
We're ready for the next phase
of our lives, and
what better than to test
each other's communication,
- our love
- Yeah. Everything.
- Than in something like this?
- Yeah.
- This is, like, hard.
- Come on, cars.
- Someone's already here.
- Hell, yeah.
Zirkus Krone-Strasse,
with a "Z."
All right, Abby, you're looking.
- There's the other team.
- Yup.
Okay, let's go.
-Let's go, guys. Let's go!
-Let's go, guys!
- All right. All right.
- It's this.
Yeah. Yellow, red. Okay.
There it is right there.
Zirkus Krone. Right there.
Where we're going
to now is called "Smash."
Go, go, come on, come on,
come on, come on.
Come on, Abby!
You got it back, babe. Come on.
Derek tore through this.
I've never seen
roll a keg faster.
- Hey. Let's go. Go.
- Yeah.
Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.
You got this, Claire. Come on.
- Okay. Vamos.
- Go, go, go, go!
- We have 15 seconds.
- Will, be careful.
Stay in your lane, David.
- Come on! Come on. Right.
- Nice and slow.
Yeah! You've done it!
Come on, babe.
No good. Too slow.
- My bad, Will.
- No, you're good. You're good.
- Go back.
- Think we got
to go again
'cause we ran out of time.
- Can we get our clue?
- For you.
- Good luck, guys.
- Good luck.
English Gardens to do Saw.
- All right.
- Here we are.
Das biergarten.
- Okay, ready? All right.
- Okay.
- Roadblock.
- Roadblock. Okay. Okay.
"Who wants to chill?"
"Smash an ice block
to free a container
with a piece
of the Pit Stop clue."
- I'll chill.
- You need to chill.
I do need to chill.
Look. We're here.
- All right.
- All right, you found the first spot.
All right. "Who wants to chill?"
- Want to do it?
- I'll do it.
Okay. Okay.
- You got this!
- I've never done this before.
So the ice challenge,
we had to basically chisel ice
and find a clue for the puzzle
to get to Phil's Pit Stop.
Yeah, baby!
There you go.
I'm so glad she got this one.
My God.
Go, babe!
That's my husband!
Do I even have the right side?
- Okay. Me?
- You can chill. All right.
All right, I'm gonna do it.
- You think it's beer? Okay.
- I got it. I got it. I got it.
Aah! Come on.
Babe, you went so fast.
All right, let's go.
Yes! Let's go, baby.
Good job!
Go, baby! Go!
All right. Let's go.
So now we're going
to Luitpoldpark.
All right. I'm going
straight, right, Nia?
I cannot confirm or deny.
I have no idea where we are,
and we're not going
in the right direction,
that's for sure.
My wife said, "Listen to Tim.
He's gonna be the navigator."
So I'm doing it.
But if we come last,
I'm kicking his ass.
We're gonna do this,
we'll be in first place.
- First place.
- Yeah.
We got this.
There's a sign right here.
Guten Tag.
Guten Tag.
- The outfits.
- Want to switch?
Yes. Okay.
My God.
- Line it straight, straight, straight.
- That's difficult.
- Okay.
- Line it straight.
Put that muscle into it, baby.
You got those strong arms,
that back.
You know I love your back.
- Let's go.
- Okay.
The secret is rhythm.
Rich and Dom they were putting
their entire body into it,
and they seemed really,
really, really tired.
Come on, Rich.
We're almost there.
We're over halfway.
I never have sawed it
in my life, but I realized
- you don't got to do that.
- Right.
Because a saw is just as sharp
if you do little movements.
- We're actually passing them here.
- Yup.
There you go.
- Shorter?
- Angle, angle, angle, angle.
We were not sawing efficiently.
We were getting
a little bit out of the groove.
Okay. Stop, stop.
It's hard to be positive
because I was frustrated,
I was tired, I was a mess.
This is terribly difficult.
Teamwork together.
Now you pull down.
There we go.
That's exactly how you do it.
Let's go, babe! You got this!
we are so competitive.
Competitive in games,
competitive in grades,
competitive in everything.
David, focus!
Come on, David! Work!
You've done it!
David, focus, focus!
You got it.
- This is for you.
- Thank you. - Awesome.
- I wish you good luck, okay?
- Thank you.
- Congratulations. - Thank you.
- Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you. Let's go.
- Let's go to Saw.
- Okay.
We're going to Saw
at Englischer Garten.
- Let's go.
- Let's go, babe. Come on.
Break that ice, babe! Good job!
- Got it.
- Yes! Let's go!
- Let's go. Okay.
- One down.
- There.
- Yes. There we go,
there we go, parking,
parking, parking.
We got a team
right there with us.
Team right there.
There-There's our girls.
Seeing Team T-Rex parking
with us That really, like,
kind of shook us up
a little bit.
'Cause we're like,
"my God. We need to run."
"Who wants to chill?"
- That's gonna be Nina.
- Okay.
- You're gonna chill.
- All right, I'll chill.
You got it! You got it!
Let's go!
Great job!
We are 40-plus-year-old
We actually met at church.
And I was looking dead at her.
And she was looking
directly over my head.
I definitely thought
he was too short for me.
I'm six foot, two,
he's five foot, seven.
But I got to meet
the person and realize
that we had so much in common.
People say
"When they go low, we go high."
Well, we can go low and high
at the same time.
All right, next one.
- Yeah!
- Yeah! Yeah!
- Good job, Nina!
- Put some damn muscle on it.
That's good.
- Got it. That's it.
- All right.
- Now we go to the other one.
- Yeah.
You got it, baby!
You got it!
We're done, baby. Yay!
Come on, Rich. We're almost
there. We're over halfway.
All right. So close.
Look at it. It's moving.
There it is. Yeah!
Put that muscle.
Shoulders, baby.
Supa, ja? Ist gut?
- Thank you.
- Wunderbar. Wunderbar.
- Thank you. Danke schoen.
- Wunderbar.
- God.
- Let's go.
Yes. Thank you so much.
- Danke. Thank you.
- Let's go.
- Come on, come on, come on.
- Yes, yes, yes.
Let's go, let's go, let's go.
- Lock it. Lock the car, please.
- Yup.
It's right here.
Go, go, go. Quick, quick.
Do you have the?
We're gonna go to Luitpoldpark.
Yes. We're gonna roll it.
Just pull. Don't push.
Pull. Pull.
- Use that big-boy strength.
- Let's go.
Okay. Good job.
You got it.
Good job, Claire.
We are not seeing anyone.
No one is coming running up.
I don't know if this means
that we are going fast
- or if we're going slow.
- DEREK: We're going super slow.
-and teams have - Already come through.
With a Scramble, you just
won't know where you are.
So I guess
let's just keep sawing.
Good job, babe.
Pull it hard, babe. Harder!
Come on.
You got it!
- Good job, you guys.
- Let's go. Awesome!
We're about
to go to Saw. Let's go.
Now we're going.
Go! Go!
No, no, no, no, no, no.
Cut, cut, cut.
Okay, passed.
- All right.
- Danke. Danke.
- Stay tight!
- One-take wonder.
Everything you've got. Let's go.
Pick it up. Pick up speed.
Get it to me, fast.
With my sports background,
you never
look at the clock. You know,
you keep your head down.
You work
until you hear the buzzer.
Yes! Let's go!
- That is for you and for you.
- Danke. Bye. - Danke.
- Hell, yes.
- Okay.
Wait. Where are you?
- You told me I had to turn.
- I'm sorry. I was
- Okay.
- Our twin telepathy is not working.
We don't have that
'cause we didn't live together
for 36 years.
- What are we doing?
- Here.
"Route Info."
It's hard to gauge if teams
are ahead of you or behind you.
'Cause the twins came in
after us, but we had seen them
at Smash,
so there's real
There was really no way to
know, and we just had to hustle.
You got it!
- Clue.
- All right.
Congratulations for you.
- Thank you. Danke.
- Thank you. Danke.
- Yes.
- Yes.
- We are headed to Saw.
- Saw.
Man. Been on the road
for a minute.
I don't like it.
Right where we are,
the streets are really jumbled.
As the road bends left,
we're gonna make the right.
Make Go Come make it.
We have no idea where anyone is,
but we do know that we saw three
teams finish in front of us.
So, it's gonna be interesting.
This doesn't look like
where we need to go.
Saw on top.
Right on top. Right on top.
Right here, baby.
Grab this way. Okay.
Okay. You want
to get inside the groove, okay?
- Why way? Which way? Here?
- Yeah. Pull back.
What's up, guys?
- Hey, guys.
- Hello.-!
Come on.
- There we go, Abby.
- Work these muscles.
Do an update.
- Where we going?
- My bad. We're going straight.
- Go straight.
- My goodness. I hate this.
I've been here multiple
times before in the Army,
but don't know enough about
the city to just move about.
Damn, I don't want
to be on this road.
Michael, we're gonna make
a left. We're gonna make a left.
There are no
- non-elimination legs.
- Yup.
- Make the U-turn.
- Come back. U-turn.
There are no second chances.
Man. I definitely
don't want to be damn
first team eliminated.
- Go back immediately?
- Yeah.
- You got it!
- My God. - My God.
- Danke schoen.
- Danke schoen.
Let's go.
Linton and Sharik
and five other teams
have completed two
of the three challenges.
All other teams
have only completed one.
Ha, ha! We're here!
Go, go.
Keep going fast.
Look how they're going.
We're sawing to the beat, baby.
Will and Abby show up after us,
and I'm think,
"All right, yeah, we're ahead of
them. We're good. We're good."
And they're just sawing without
any effort, and they just
It's like butter.
- That log's infected!
- Go!
Thank you so much.
"Saw completely through a log
to the music of Bavaria.

- Hey, there they are.
- Good luck, guys.
-Thank you guys.
-Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
- Hello!
- Hi.
- Why are you stopping?!
- Want to switch sides?
- Want to switch sides?
- Go.
Our goal is to do it faster
than the music.
We got to go faster
than the music.
- Pull.
- Okay, this is all we have left to do.
Set. Let's go, Mattie.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Come on.
Smile, babe.
You're on The Amazing Race.
I know for a fact.
Aubrey has never held a saw
in her hand.
And she got it.
She picked it up really quick.
David's more impressed
about my sawing skills
- than how I actually got us there.
- Yeah. No, I mean
Which was way harder.
- Here we go, baby.
- You-you see
Yeah, right there.
. Okay, okay, okay.
Everyone's already been here.
- "Who wants to chill?"
- Do you want to take it?
Yeah, yeah, I'll chill.
You got it!
Go, go, go, go!
Go, go, go, go!
- Go, go, go!
- Aah! Come on! Damn it!
- Yay!
- I got it! I got it!
Guten Tag. All right.
Danke! Danke!
All right,
let's just put 'em all down.
- It's wings. It's wings.
- Nice.
So this is what you get
when you finish all three
of the challenges.
- And
- And it's a nice little puzzle.
You piece it together.
- Immediately.
- And we have a beautiful angel!
figured out the clue they need
to find me here at the Pit Stop.
Friedensengal angel of peace.
Keeping watch
high above the city,
teams will find me here
under the wings.
With no non-eliminations
on this race,
the last team to check in
will be eliminated.
"Park in one of the available
marked parking spaces.
The crosswalk is
located underground."
This is the most nervous
I've been on this race.
I'm so proud of you.
Look, everyone's gonna beat us.
- They've been doing
- Come on, baby.
Thank you.
Come on. Let's get to the car.
They're right behind us.
You can
give me all three pieces.
- 22 Widenmayerstrasse and 25.
- We're headed to the
Have no idea
where we are on the pack.
In the worst case, we are
somewhere around, like, eight.
Best case, we could be first.
- Tim?
- Yeah.
Come on, buddy.
Here we go. Here we go.
Here we go.
- Are you ready?
- Yes!
Come on, Tim!
Doing great, buddy! Doing great!
Tim gets ready for marathons.
He's in great shape.
I don't want to be an anchor.
I lost 50 pounds for this race.
Got it.
You know, I know
what the fans are thinking.
That's a deck chair
off the Titanic.
Come on, Rex!
But it was important
for me to get down
and give ourselves a chance.
Go, Rich, go!
- Attaboy, kid.
- Yeah, good.
Congratulations. For you.
- Thank you, sir.
- Thank you.
- So now we have to go to the Biergarten Seehaus.
- Yeah.
We're doing so poorly
getting to this third one.
You know, the Scramble just
makes it hard on this first leg
of keeping track of other teams.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
- My God!!
When we left the first
challenge in the park,
we hadn't seen any other teams,
so who knows?
Go, go, go, go!
- Yes!
- Yeah!
Hopefully, we're still
in, like, top grouping.
- Yes!
- Yes!
- Okay. What street are we on?
- Um
Come on, girl. Attagirl.
This is physical. Okay.
Like, we cannot mess up.
We have to make sure
we don't finish last.
Go, go, go, go!
You got this, baby!
You got it, baby.
Keep going! Keep going!
Roll it! Just throw it!
Throw it!
Go, Rich! Go!
Don't lose control!
Speed, but focus.
A little tired, but we're gonna
make this happen
because we're gonna fight.
Don't lose control!
Don't lose control!
Don't lose control.
Let's go, baby!
The race is really gonna
challenge us personally,
and also as a couple,
and we know that we need
to support each other
no matter what.
You got it!
- Thank you.
- Congratulations for you.
- Danke. - Good luck.
- Thank you so much.
Doing hard things,
for me, is important,
and showing others
that they can do it, too.
We're meant
to go through the challenges
and through the journeys
to make us realize
our fullest potential.
- Here it is, to the right.
- That took way too long.
Yo. This is hard.
Come on, Marcus.
- "Who wants to chill?"
- "Who wants to chill?"
Okay. Um
Since you're hesitating,
I'll do it.
We're trying to get
to the Pit Stop.
We're trying to find Phil.
Yeah, the Scramble
You just have no idea,
'cause we could be
racing for first right now.
- We're almost to the Pit Stop, babe.
- Yeah, babe.
- We got to keep, keep moving.
- Just Yeah.
I see the angel.
Derek, we might be first!
We got to keep moving.
- You know, run a steady race.
- Yeah.
The crosswalk
is located underground.
We have to go underground.
There, there, there!
- Who?
- Phil!
No, there's no way.
- Claire, there's no way.
- What?
- Claire, it's Phil!
- Aah!
Welcome to Munich, Germany.
Thank you. I like your beard.
are the first team to arrive.
My God! What?! No!
- Come on, Claire!
- Yes!
- Number uno. Let's go!
- Number one in the mat!
And I do have
some great news for you.
You have won $2,500 each.
Come on.
So you can use
that $5,000 collectively
if you want to go on a trip
anywhere you want.
It's really, really wild
that we got first.
Everyone hopes.
- They just don't want to get last.
- Literally.
That's what
we were racing for today.
- Was not last.
- Not get last.
I hope this sets a tone for
us for the rest of the race.
- Right here. Yep.
- You sure?
My pants falling down.
Step on the mat.
My wife has skills
I didn't even know possible.
She can roll a beer keg
like nobody else.
- Dude, are you pushing?
- You got to
I don't know what you're
- When I go, you got to push.
- Are you pushing?
- I thought I was pulling myself.
- As I pull, you got to push.
- Okay.
- I'm pulling now.
All right.
- Hey, boys.
- What's up, gentlemen? Yo.
Right here.
The way we relate as brothers,
there's no competition. Usually,
- it's a family vacation, you know, Christmas.
- Yeah.
And so, this adds
a-a different dynamic
to our relationship.
You got to push,
Marcus, come on!
We have to learn how do we
communicate the best way?
My God.
Challenges the last two
We really crushed them.
Yeah. I think
we're really trying
not to get too confident,
'cause it's absolutely
not over until it's over.
Everyone else is also
equally very good.
- So that's the problem.
- Yeah. It's very competitive.
Too slow.
- Aah!
- It's okay, baby.
- Almost.
- Lumber, lumber, lumber,
lumber, lumber, lumber, lumber!
- Hey, boys.
- Hey.
They look sweaty.
- Yay!
- Yeah!
My God. You got to be
kidding me. Well done.
- Thank you, sir.
- Thank you, sir.
Let's go put the clue together.
Let me read that thing.
- Hello.
- Hey, guys.
Hey, what's up, girl?
Good job, baby.
It's okay. It's okay, babe.
- You got it, baby.
- Go!
- You got it!
- Yeah!
Team Croqueta came by,
literally came in,
- did it one time, and they left.
- Yeah, one. Yeah.
And we were like, "Aah!"
Phil, we're coming!
Let's go.
Welcome. Feel good?
I think as far
as the challenges go,
- we beasted 'em.
- We beast it. Beast it.
This is our dress rehearsal.
Why is that so hard?
- So the bridge is south of us.
- We're close.
Okay. Stay on Widenmayer
'cause that's the street
we want to be on.
It was like, okay, now I got to
do it. I know the technique.
I know the physics.
I got to do it this time.
- Here. Here. Here.
- Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run.
Run, run, run, run!
Yeah! Yeah!
My God.
We got it! We got it!
We got it.!
"Who wants to chill?"
- You want to chill.
- I want-want to chill.
Go, go, go, go, go.
Go, go!
There you go, babe.
Got it.
Let's go!
We have to go that way.
Thought it said
the crosswalk was underground.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, it's underground.
- Yes, we do see another team.
- That team right there.
Okay, Dad, we can beat them.
-We're going there. We're going there.
-Cross now.
I think Phil's over there.
- Did you see the sisters yet?
- No.
Cross right here.
Nice. Land. Beautiful.
We have another team coming in.
- Hey, guys.
- Hey.
- You guys are breathing.
- This was a tiring day.
This was
this was hard, for sure..
There's no underground thing.
That's not an underground thing.
We got to turn around.
- Yeah.
- Come on, Mike.
So we got to cross on this side?
- All right.
- Phil.
Look at this.
- Bring it in, bring it in.
- Here he comes.
Had a good day?
Dying for beer,
but had a great day.
Here comes another team.
Will, I thought you
guys were gonna pass out
at the start of the race.
I mean, you looked so excited.
And there's another team
right now.
Make some space. Let 'em in.
Crosswalk is
located underground.
Right here, ba-babe. Right here.
- Phil.
- My God.
Luis and Michelle
you are not out of the race.
You are the tenth team
to arrive.
We're running out of time now.
I've never been under
so much pressure in my life.
We have no idea what
what place we're in.
We just hope we're not last.
- It might be coming up.
- This says "O-E-T-T" right here,
- but I can't make a left.
- Okay, you make a left.
- It's only a right.
- My gosh.
- We're almost there, baby.
- Hope so.
Hope I'm not in last.
What a day.
Yeah. Come on.
Aubrey and David, you're nodding
your head like you know.
We figured
the odds are against us.
You knew it was
gonna be competitive
at the starting line, right?
- Right off the bat.
- Right off the bat.
Everybody wants more, I know,
but like I told you,
- no more second chances.
- I know. I know.
Yeah, that's the challenge.
Can you see something?
I told you.
- David!
- I told you. I told you.
- Didn't I tell you?
- I am pleased to tell you
- I told you.
- You are not
- the last team to arrive.
- Aah! - Yeah!
You are team number 11.
You are still in the race.
Aastha and Nina.
Unfortunately, you are
the last team to arrive.
- Yeah.
- And you are eliminated
-from the race.
-That's okay. We-we had fun. We had fun, Phil.
No regrets. We got to
I got to go to Germany
with my best friend.
I was so stressed out, but
I was having a good time,
- She's having such a good time.
- I was having a lot of fun.
And that's how our life
is, you know?
I'm-I'm the person who worries
about every little thing.
And this person
is a light in my life.
And I mean, without her, I-I
wouldn't be in anything, so
I still have my winner with me,
and, we're gonna go home
and laugh about this
every single day of our lives.
My main rule was to have
fun, and I had a blast today.
There's no other place
in the world that I'd rather be,
and there's no other person
I'd rather be with.
This season
on The Amazing Race
- We ain't playing, we ain't playing!
- We ain't playing!
Why is this so hard?
Is that real
or are we seeing things?
My gosh.
This is unbelievable.
I've just been freaking out
'cause he's freaking out.
This is all I wanted!
