The Amazing Race (2001) s34e09 Episode Script

Vamos a la Playa

Previously on
The Amazing Race
Six teams raced
to Toulouse, France.
Luis and Derek's
bromance continued.
I gave him half a heart.
- Aw.
- And he gave me the other half.
Marcus stumbled
at the Roadblock.
Emily fought through
her leg injury for her daughter.
Just thinking about my daughter
and just pushing through,
and I just
She's setting
a really great example.
Derek and Claire's
French-speaking skills
earned the dating couple
their second win of the season.
You're team number one.
Meanwhile, Aubrey and David
were tongue-tied.
- "Bruit."
- "Boit."
But Quinton and Mattie's
navigational problems
I want to get out.
Got to get out.
I don't think we're
supposed to go out this way.
knocked them out of the race.
you are the last team to arrive.
I'm disappointed, 'cause I know
what we are capable of.
All teams
are now making their way
500 miles, from the south
of France
to the south of Spain,
This ancient city
is known as a cultural hub,
with an abundance
of must-see monuments
and more than 30 museums.
The perfect place
for another Mega Leg--
two Roadblocks,
two Detours, in two cities.
The last team to complete
this leg will be eliminated.
"Route Info.
another Mega Leg.
Make your way on foot
to Plaza de la Merced"
"the birthplace
of Pablo Picasso
to find your next clue."
"We have zero euros
for this leg of the race."
Zero euros. Let's
do it, guys. Wow.
Okay. Good energy.
These steps-- no joke.
We're leaving
in the first group today,
and on a normal leg,
that would be a huge advantage.
But I have a feeling
those 15 minutes
are gonna just fly by so quick.
So today, it's just really
important we don't get lost
and we don't burn ourselves out,
'cause you never know
- what might be coming around the next corner.
- Definitely.
It's pretty steep up here.
It is pretty steep.
- Yeah.
- This is gonna be tough on Emily.
We're really excited
'cause we're in Spain today.
His family's from Spain,
and just to be top five,
to win the race
now seems attainable.
Now we're going
for the million, for sure.
- At least we get to look down.
- Gorgeous, mate.
- There's a pathway there.
- There's a pathway there?
- All right, let's go. Let's go.
- You didn't even look at it.
All right. All right, let's go.
That's what
I was trying to tell you.
- Yeah, we're good, guys.
- This is the right way.
Let's go, Spain!
Let's go right. Let's go right.
Watch out, the bus.
Oh, it's right here.
- Oh, guys, this might be it.
- The trees, right there.
Yeah, this is it. This is it.
Clue box, I see it.
Who Will Be
a Master of Pieces?"
It's estimated that
Pablo Picasso produced
a staggering
147,800 pieces of artwork
in his lifetime,
including this masterpiece,
Three Musicians.
Teams need
to correctly piece it together
using six panels
of painted glass.
Once they've brought
this prized painting to life
by correctly
aligning each panel
they can get a clue.
- You want to do it?
- Yeah, I'll do it.
- I'll do this.
- Michelle's doing it.
Uh, me llamoClaire.
I don't see a sample.
"Recreate one of Pablo Picasso's
greatest works
to receive a clue."
That's Picasso
on his bench, baby.
Let's do this.
Is there an example?
- You got this, Claire.
- You got this, baby.
I think they might
have to look at this painting.
Right now,
I'm opening up panels,
and I have
to recreate a masterpiece.
So it's a puzzle.
Claire, do you see the example?
Uh, not yet. Okay.
I'm finding the example.
Oh, it's right here.
Do you see it, Claire?
Damn it!
We chose the furthest part.
I looked around.
I didn't see anything.
That's rough.
My strategy here
is to look for
very specific things
in the painting,
so I'm able to see,
like, a person.
But it's an abstract painting.
It's not like
they're clear pictures.
So sometimes it's just like,
"Oh, this brown blob
"goes in front
of the blue blob,
which is behind the black blob."
Um, okay.
Let's put this one
in the back.
- You got this, Claire!
- Keep moving!
You got this, baby.
Good hustle.
"Make your way on foot
to the Plaza de la Merced"
"the birthplace of Pablo
Picasso to find your next clue."
"Zero euros
for this leg of the race."
We are headed
to the Plaza de la Merced,
the birthplace of Pablo Picasso.
We're leaving in group two
with David and Aubrey
and Molly and Emily,
15 minutes behind group one.
I absolutely think
we have a chance to win,
not just this leg, but the race.
But all teams here do.
Everybody's kind of shown
that they can perform,
so I think today
it's gonna be about
performance at challenges.
This is a fun trip down.
These stones.
- To the left, to the left.
- They're going to the left.
It's a blessing
to be in the top five.
- Still here, still pushing, still in the race.
- Yeah.
Honestly, my competitive side's
gonna come out today, for sure.
I know at least
I've been holding back a little.
But now it's
coming down to the wire.
- All the teams are strong, so
- Yeah.
I'm not gonna say
claws are coming out,
but they're slowly creeping out.
Man, look at this view.
I can't even look at it 'cause
I'm afraid I'm gonna fall.
Man, this sucks.
I feel bad for Emily.
I need a second. Sorry.
This is, like
- This is killing me.
- It's okay.
Today is a Mega Leg,
and so there's going to be a lot
- of challenges coming up.
- We need to really
pace ourselves
because of my knee.
Probably going to have to endure
this for the rest of the race.
we make it past this leg.
Oh, this is not good.
Okay. You can take it slow.
You got this.
You just tell me
when to slow down.
Do you want to try jogging?
- Nope. Not yet.
- Okay.
Speed walking?
No, I can't. I can't even do that.
It's weird.
What would be the next one?
You got this, Claire.
They officially have
the two furthest
stations from the model.
- Yeah.
- That's not good.
This is tough.
- It's a lot of running.
- Yeah.
Apparently, I chose the
furthest station from the demo.
So I was running back and forth.
See if I could figure this out.
- Okay.
- You got this, baby!
And the actual pieces
to put inside the frame
were so heavy.
So I was like,
"I didn't know it was gonna be
a strength challenge, as well."
It's okay. I got my little
cardio in for the day, right?
Aw, man.
It's very hard to know.
I'll be right back.
- This way?
- Let's take a left.
Marcus and Mike, you got this.
Oh. Turn right here?
- This way.
- Oh, they're Oh, yes.
- Okay, we're good.
- "Who is
the Master of Pieces?"
- You got it. You got it.
- Me.
You good at puzzles?
- I-I can do it.
- All right.
They just got here.
Flip it.
Then we're gonna
to put it in next.
Oh, no, wait.
- You got this, babe.
- You can do it.
Let's go, Marcus!
Let's set this one right there.
Take your time. Be methodical.
So this is what
Picasso looked like, huh?
This can't be.
He's not missing an ear.
Not yet.
That's van Gogh. Got you.
This stone
is the death of me.
We knew you'd be hurting, right?
Yes. I knew I'd be hurting.
I didn't think
I'd be hurting this
soon after ripping the clue.
Okay, this one.
Damn. Wait.
Where does that go?
Oh, God.
Picassos, in general,
are all over the place,
different figures.
So it was just very confusing.
You got this, baby.
You got this, babe.
This is not easy.
It was
hot out. I think that was, like,
the hardest thing is, like,
sweat was
dripping down my face,
and, like,
I couldn't see. My mascara
was running.
I'm trying to figure out which
is going to go
That's the last and the first,
and then I can figure out
the in-between.
You got this, Aubrey.
This the front?
Let me see it.
Be right back.
Come on, Marcus.
All right. Uh Check.
Oh, I'm nervous.
- Are you getting it, or no?
- No, I didn't get it.
Yeah, it looks wrong.
I think
I have something flipped.
"Who Is the Master of Pieces?"
You are.
It's me.
Up to this point,
Molly has done five Roadblocks.
I had only done three,
because I was in bad shape.
And my knee
has definitely slowed us down.
So it's really important
for us to
get ahead in the challenges,
and I thought this is one
that I'm going to be able to do.
Okay, Em, I believe in you.
Oh, wow. These are heavy, huh?
- I feel so bad for her.
- She's feeling pain.
I don't want her to feel
like anything's all on her.
Oh, God. This is not good.
Oh, man.
Not good.
I just don't
want her to feel like,
if we go out today,
that it's her fault.
All right, Em, you got this.
I want this one
in the very back.
I think.
Wow, this is complicated.
You know, one second.
Let me just
Oh, man.
It is important for me
to continue this race
with my injury.
Being a single mom, I want to
show my daughter,
you know, perseverance,
confidence, having faith.
I mean, all those things
- matter in life.
- You got this.
Also, I'm fighting
for time. We have
just a few more legs left.
If I can
spend the next few legs
with Molly, it's extra time
before we have to go back to
work and our normal lives. So,
I'm a fighter.
I don't give up.
- Okay.
- You got this.
All right.
Think it's upside down.
Okay. This one.
You got this, Claire.
Looking quick. Looking speedy.
Flip it.
Just so I can visually see
- before I have to slide these in.
- Check.
I know you got this, baby.
Gosh darn it.
You got this, Aubrey.
Okay. Check.
It's okay, Aubrey.
You got this.
It's very tricky, visually.
What's going on here?
That doesn't look right.
Can we switch, um,
the first two, I think?
Uh, check, please.
All right, Marcus. Let's go.
The first couple times,
the pieces are just, like,
the wrong way,
totally turned around.
Oh, I'm nervous.
And then, once I figure out
that brown has to be
in front of the white piece
I flipped two pieces,
and the artistic master
and I actually got it right.
Uh Ooh
Muchas gracias.
Yes, Claire! I love you!
"Route Info.
"Travel by bicycle to El Cubo
to find your next clue."
-Okay. The port's gonna be that way.
-Let's go. Okay.
Claire got it. Oh, my God.
- Oh, wow. You did so good.
- Thank you.
Give me a high five.
There's something wrong.
There's something wrong.
I want
to move this one back one.
Blue is behind the red.
You got this, Aubrey!
Two is too far.
Okay, I think I got it.
- Check, please.
- Come on, Marcus.
I'm not sure what's incorrect.
I got to take this out
and look at it again.
Can I switch one and two?
- One and two?
- One and two.
I feel like I'm getting it right
and it's not,
but it's just frustrating.
Right now, we're gonna go
get our bikes at the cathedral,
and then after that, we're
gonna keep going to the cube.
Here we are. Nice.
- Okay.
- Let's go.
- Ready?
- Yeah. How do you feel about it?
Let's at least get out of here
before we crash.
I've crashed a moped,
I've crashed a bike,
I've crashed a skateboard,
I've crashed
a scooter. So I think now,
I've come to the point
where I have, like, trauma.
We're off.
We're gonna go right and
then we're gonna make a left.
You got this, baby.
Damn. This is really hard.
Why? Why?
Why is this not working?
Oh, my God. Okay.
At the beginning,
the first thing I did
was put the last one. Like,
I knew what the last one was.
So I put that one in first,
and then
I decided to put what I thought
was the first one,
and then fill it in in between.
I just thought
maybe that would be easier.
Um, but I asked for a check,
and it was wrong.
So I decided to run back
and look at the picture.
And I had switched
the front two.
Yes. Yes.
- We got this, babe.
- Okay.
Can I switch one and two?
So, once I figured out
the first one
was actually the second panel,
then everything
started making sense,
and I was like, "Yes."
Please, please, please.
- Come on, Aubrey.
- Come on, Aubrey.
Give me the good news.
Give me the good news.
Oh, my gosh! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!
- Yes! Yes! Babe, I did it!
- Come on.
Good job. Good job. Let's go.
- Let's go, let's go.
- Okay, let's go.
Oh, you're kidding me.
I saw Aubrey leave.
Oh, my gosh.
I feel like crying.
And that's when I broke down.
I don't know why
it's not going together.
I couldn't figure out a way
to do it. I was kind of running
back and forth.
It didn't look like anything.
I kept switching them around,
and I-I was really defeated.
You got this, baby.
I love you, amor.
I'm sorry.
- No, don't say sorry.
- You got this.
It's okay, baby. It's okay.
- You can do this.
- Okay.
I was just like, "Okay,
you need to calm down, regroup."
Wait, he's playing backwards.
I think I got it.
I think I just
have it backwards.
You can do this. You're almost
there. Just figure out
what's wrong.
Oh, my God, yes!
- Thank you. Thank you.
- Yes!
I got in my head.
This-this Roadblock
was hard for me.
- "Travel by bicycle to El Cubo."
- Okay.
There's the cube, Derek.
Oh, we found the cube.
Wow. I hated that.
Do you see the clue box?
- Right there.
- Nice.
Fish Fry or Sailboat Supply?"
sunny days a year--
one of the reasons that
the miles and miles
of beautiful beaches found here
are so popular.
And the most popular
gastronomic item on the menu,
espetos-- speared fish
grilled over an open flame
in a boat filled with sand.
Teams need
to skewer and roast
18 of them to perfection
to get a clue.
The Mediterranean
is bordered by 22 countries
on three continents--
Africa, Asia and Europe.
This port city
is a popular stopping-off point
for sailing vessels
to replenish supplies,
something that teams have to do
using a stand-up paddleboard.
This Detour
will be a balancing act
as teams attempt to deliver
a large cooler filled with ice
and eight life vests
to a yacht anchored offshore.
If they make it,
they'll get a clue.
Uh, we're gonna do Fish Fry.
-All right. Fish Fry. Let's go make some sardines.
- I'll go first, okay, Derek?
- Yeah.
I'm just gonna let this car go,
and then we go.
Let's go.
- Can I just walk my bike?
- No!
There's a lot of pieces
of the painting
that overlap one another.
So just trying
to understand the layers
and where everything sits has
been pretty difficult for me.
Come on, Em.
Come on, Marcus.
You got this.
I don't know why this is not
I'm so confused.
Why was that not right?
This is crazy.
It's all right. You got this.
What am I doing wrong?
Now it's just us.
We're waiting, Molly.
I don't know how to go
fast on this thing. I'm scared.
Come on, Derek.
This is giving me PTSD
to when I crashed my bike.
This is my fear
that I need to overcome.
Come on. Let's go.
- Derek, go! Derek!
- What?
You can't stop right there.
I'm right behind you. I'm sorry.
- I thought you were going to the right.
- I just don't want to hit you.
Can you just
Can you peddle, please?
What? Dude. Relax.
-I'm sorry. I'm just right behind you.
I'm just gonna lead, okay?
I think I'm just
a little bit more confident
-on a bike than you. I'm sorry I was yelling.
-Yeah, no, for sure.
I, like, get, like, a panic
attack when I'm, like, pedaling,
'cause I just, like,
picture in my mind crashing it.
But Claire's a speed demon
on this thing,
so I'm trying
to keep up with her.
I felt the pressure, because
with just five teams left,
if you're not
doing things flawlessly,
you feel like you're losing.
This is me running in Petra.
You can do it.
All right.
I'm gonna overcome my fears.
I'm proud of you.
Thank you.
We're bottom two right now.
It's almost there.
Confidence is growing.
Check, please.
Maybe this one
goes in the front.
- I just don't even know.
- Come on.
Come on.
- And it's a "No."
- No. Oh, man.
- Something's off.
- I just can't see it.
I'm sorry, Mike, man.
Hey. Don't think like that.
We're not even there yet.
I legitimately don't see it.
Okay. Come on.
Please, please, please.
Please, please
- Yay!
- Thank you.
Muchas gracias.
Thank you so much.
All right, Em.
How's your leg feel?
You good to run?
It's not great, but it's good.
The mission
is to winThe Amazing Race.
You know, it's five teams left.
And winning matters.
So it's about securing
a good start for the final leg,
where we're gonna be
pushing to the final three.
Come on, Marcus.
- Come on, Aubrey.
- Right here, baby.
- It's right here.
- "Detour."
Babe, we've been
wanting to cook.
- I feel like we can cook.
- So let's cook.
We chose Fish Fry because
we figured it was gonna be
the first
of many Detours to come today.
So let's just save our energy
in case we need
to do something a little
bit more physical later on.
Let's cook.
Here it is.
Canta el Gallo.
- Oh, wow.
- Pull over.
Fish Fry, Sailboat Supply.
Uh, let me watch him.
Let me watch him.
Oh, that's gross. Sorry.
I respect your profession.
Season, salt-based style.
He salted one side
and then salts the other side.
All right, watch this next one.
He's interweaving
the sides of the spine.
Oh, good call.
Top, and then down and through.
Derek, he's flipping.
He's flipping them, Derek.
Uh, I've never
grilled fish before.
I've been vegan for five years,
so I haven't even eaten a fish
in the past five years.
And when I was not vegan, I
never cooked a fish in my life.
But Derek is a fantastic cook.
Derek is
the chef of our apartment.
He was the chef inBig Brother.
Should we start, Derek?
Oh, shoot.
- I thought we didn't take
- Wait, Derek, no.
- Ours are over there.
- Oh, oh.
- God. Derek, take a breath.
- Take a breath.
- What?
- I want you to take a breath.
- Okay.
- Calm down.
I was like, "Let's just
grill these sardines."
You just have
to make three plates of them.
We watched the example.
- It's pretty quick when he does it.
- It's
You literally skewer six,
put it on,
flip it after two minutes
and you're done.
- So I was like, "This isn't hard."
- Yeah.
Easy peasy.
Just got to follow
exactly what he did.
He, like, comes in
from up top over the spine
and goes
down through the middle.
I'm not doing this right,
'cause my guts are coming out.
Clue box, right there.
All right.
"Fish Fry or Sailboat Supply?"
We're from Miami.
We've done paddleboarding.
The crazy part
is we practiced paddleboarding
before we went on the race.
Let's get in the water,
and let's destroy this Detour.
- Yeah.
- That's the plan.
Sailboat Supply. Let's go.
We're gonna
choose the paddleboard.
Let me just
take this in for a sec.
There's gonna be an orange sign
that reads "Playa Palo."
- And that's where we're gonna make a right, okay?
- Okay.
I can't get over it.
We're in Spain!
- Aubrey, go, go.
- Go and let me go.
Okay, va.
Hey, happy thoughts.
-Yeah. Let's go, let's go, let's go.
-Be happy!
I'm enjoying this
more than I think you are.
- No. This is beautiful.
- Try to stay with me, babe.
We got to make up
as much time as we can.
Let's beat some ass now.
Let's go.
Let's put it back.
Molly and Emily left.
And so it's just Marcus and I.
Last team here at the Roadblock.
- Let me see it.
- All right. One more time.
Check, please.
When we first walked up,
I asked him,
I was like,
"Hey, are you good at puzzles?"
- You good at puzzles?
- I-I can do it.
He said, "Yeah,"
and so I was like, "All right."
Now he's just
making mistake after mistake,
and he can't see it.
I-I have zero confidence
at this point.
- Check, please.
- Let's go, Marcus.
Come on. Come on.
Stay focused.
I-I have
zero confidence at this point.
When he said "no" again,
like, my confidence was shook.
Maybe number one is number four,
and maybe number four
is number two,
and anything goes.
I don't know what I'm missing.
Let's take the first one out.
I'm switching things
in the front, putting something
that was number one,
number three, and vice versa.
I'm switching things
all over the place.
I think I did this order before.
- Come on, Marcus.
- Let's go, Marcus.
And so, I was like, "All right,
"I'm-a take every one out
and do it again.
And this time, I'm gonna
build this rear to front."
I just got
to rearrange the whole thing.
Like, I keep-keep
getting it wrong. So I-I
Start from scratch.
Did you see
- El Cubo?
- No.
I don't want to pass it.
Where am I going?
Is that it?
Huh? El Cubo?
It's gonna be on our left.
Yeah, we need number five
or look for El Cubo.
Did we pass it?
- Okay, start a timer.
- He just flipped one.
- Please. And let's go over here.
- Okay, okay, okay.
- We're skewering these fish.
- Wait, don't say "we."
- You were skewering the fish.
- I'm-I'm skewering the fish.
I did not touch,
really, the fish at all.
I would love for Derek
to kind of skewer all of them.
Derek, I can salt them.
That's really my passion,
is salt.
Not so much fish.
Claire's giving me
moral support, uh,
and now we have our jobs.
Inverted side down.
- It doesn't matter.
- Both sides have to cook.
Uh, Derek,
you lost, you lost fish.
You lost fish.
You lost some fish.
And it's all going smoothly,
but then some of the fish
- start falling off.
- Mm.
Are you sure
this is what he was doing?
So, the skewer's kind of
like a "V" shape,
and you want
to skewer it with, like,
the concave part facing up.
And we were doing it like this.
Uh, we didn't
realize what was going on,
but then
we went back to the example
and saw that
we had to flip it over.
Always go back to the example.
Oh, this is much better.
Before, when I was
doing it facing down,
the guts were coming out,
and the fish weren't sticking,
- but now you'll see it's, like, almost perfect.
- Here.
Do you want me
to go put it in, Derek?
Okay. Thank you. Thank you.
Inverted up. Yeah.
Start a timer for three minutes.
I'm mainly here
for morale right now.
I got the timer going.
Oh, I didn't salt it.
I'm stupid.
- Oh, okay.
- El stupido.
- We might just have to restart.
- No, no.
- Really a lot, Derek.
- Derek, a lot of salt.
One side. Other side. Beautiful.
Sorry. I should be on this.
Okay. My new job, salting,
watching the fish,
making sure they don't fall in.
I mean, that looks, like,
pretty damn good, I'd say.
- Claire.
- Okay.
Marcus just started over.
Taking everything out,
and then he's starting
to put it back in again,
but I think the frustration
and the stress has set in.
When I took
those panels out in the front,
I realized
I never switched the rear panel.
And that was
the first panel that I put in.
And when I looked at that
rear one, it was upside down.
Can we take this one out?
I think I might have
had it right with the other five
multiple times, but I never
changed this one the whole time.
And this one is upside down.
When I saw it,
my heart dropped,
because if I put that
very rear panel
in the right way up front,
I would have gotten
my clue on the first time.
Check, please.
- Come on, Marcus.
- Come on. Come on.
Nice. Let's do this.
Hey, don't stress yourself out.
This is a Mega Leg.
Plenty of time.
What's that next building say?
- 11. We passed it.
- Okay.
The navigation
when we get into cities,
we tend to miss turns.
There was still
one group behind us,
so it was just
a matter of staying in it
and being competitive
against Marcus and Michael.
Oh, my God.
We drove right by it?
- Man, we're making mistakes today.
- Ugh.
Este, right?
- East.
- Yeah.
Yeah, we're good.
I'm just really happy
that we haven't seen
Michael and Marcus
or Molly and Emily.
It's a long day. You don't
know what could happen.
We could catch up. I still think
we could get first this leg.
And we're ahead
of Marcus and Mike right now,
which is a good thing.
- We're on Amazing Race!
- Riding bikes in Spain!
- Oh, right here.
- Are these the bikes?
Yeah. Marked red
and yellow. I see 'em.
Come on, Marcus. Left?
Left, left, left.
We're trying
and find 5 Paseo de la Farola
to get to El Cubo.
We were excited to ride bikes
as a way to try
to close the distance.
It's a long leg.
Hopefully we got time.
Let's do it. Let's do it.
I mean, I was excited because
I grew up riding
a mountain bike everywhere.
When I was eight,
I was out riding a bike.
I rode across the street,
I get hit by a car.
Went through the windshield,
and then, like, bounced off.
I had a cerebral hemorrhage
and hematoma.
I had to get life-flighted
to-to Akron Children's Hospital.
Go, go, go. Let's hit it.
Doctors said that I, like,
had a low chance of making it,
but, you know,
your boy's a fighter.
Your boy's a fighter,
hence I'm a fighter pilot.
You think we can
go faster than this?
"Fish Fry or Sailboat Supply?"
- We got to do skewer.
- Fish Fry. Fish Fry.
We opted for
Fish Fry over Boat Supply
mainly because
of Emily's injured knee.
Here. I want you
to look at these roads.
I paddleboarded
down the Colorado River
with my daughter
a couple summers ago.
It would've been great
to have cooled off in the water,
but that was just
not in the cards for us today.
Here we go.
-It's right here. It's right here.
Park your bike, park your bike.
- Yo, what's up?
- Hey.
We have to watch someone
demonstrate. Oh, it's this guy.
It looks like, at first,
he has them facing to the right.
Skewers up. There's six.
- Right in the middle of the sword.
- Two, four, six.
But we have
to prepare three plates.
You want to start with that?
- Can we?
- Yeah.
We lost a fish here.
Can I take this one off?
Take it off. It's done.
This is where
my Filipino side comes in.
I grew up in a Filipino
household, and my grandma
really loves sardines.
- Oh, this is disgusting.
- Here?
- Yeah.
- Ooh.
So I used to watch her, like,
fry it, pull the head off
and eat the fish.
I don't eat fish
because of that.
Ew, babe. All
right. Ooh. Let's go.
To see that today, I was, like,
flashing back, old
childhood memories, like PTSD.
- Ooh, hoo-hoo.
- Oh, my God, no.
- We are
- Upside down.
putting on little fishies.
Okay, Aubrey. Oh, my God.
We got one guy.
Oh, my God.
- Babe. Babe, it's fine.
- Poor fishies.
So we're just gonna get an extra
skewer going, just in case.
Aah! Oh, my God.
You got this, Aubrey.
Thank you, Derek.
Claire, how are you
holding up with this?
- I'm not.
- I'm doing all of it.
Just kidding.
I see paddleboards over there.
That has to be it, baby.
That has to be it.
I see, I see it.
This way.
- Hi, guys.
- Hey, dudes.
- Yo.
- Miami's here.
They're doing the other Detour.
Choose a stand-up
paddleboard with a pump.
Okay. These.
This is gonna be us.
I think we might
have to go over there.
- That's fine. We got this.
- Okay.
- This is a big-ass paddleboard, baby.
- Okay.
-Once we picked a paddleboard,
-It was so much fun.
we had to inflate it first.
And I'm there
pumping this thing,
-MICHELLE: On the beach.
is out there
cheering me on, like,
"Yeah! Go, go, go!"
You know, they weren't cheering
for the people cooking.
There's nothing
to cheer about there.
That's boring.
This is what firefighter
training is all about.
As a dancer, I present.
And he does the work.
We are skewering
the poor fishes.
I grew up around fish
my whole life, so it's
it doesn't bother me.
- Um
- Bothers me.
Honestly, you guys,
this is not, like, it for me,
but for a million dollars
Oh, my God.
Oh, I think that one moved!
- David, stop it.
- Just kidding.
That's gross.
I need to make my dad proud.
My dad's a fisherman.
So it's in my, it's in my genes.
This one's for you, Dad.
Derek, I think we have to plate
this or else it's gonna fall.
Okay, this one right here
- is probably done.
- Yeah, I think this one's ready.
- Oh, my God.
- Get the fatty ones.
- Get the fatty ones. Oh, okay.
- I am getting the fatty ones.
I'm just having a really
hard time with the texture.
- Yeah, get the solid ones.
- Wait.
They keep
falling out of my hand.
Whoo, it's hot.
You still feel like
we're on the right path?
- Yeah.
- Playa El Palo.
This is Playa Caleta.
What do you want to do?
I think we need to ask.
Excuse me, sir.
I'm looking for Playa El Palo.
You have to carry on here.
Like, uh, I don't know
how to say, uh, kilometer?
- Or Kilometer and a half?
- Kilometer.
- Okay. Like, another mile.
- Okay. Thank you.
Oh, my God.
I can't trust my legs.
You good? Don't hurt yourself.
Go faster.
Channel Michael. Fast.
Oh, it's over here!
Which one are you trying to do?
- I'm thinking Fish Fry.
- Same.
Oh, this one's nice and meaty.
Do you want me to do more
or should I just watch?
Babe, just do one more.
What I told you.
Yeah, yeah,
put on more than you need,
'cause they're gonna fall off.
- See? I told you.
- Yeah.
You guys seasoned with salt,
- No.
- You didn't salt?
- No.
- The fish?
- You have to salt the fish.
- Oh, that makes
- so much more sense.
- You're good, you're good.
Do you want me to do it once?
I'll show you guys
how he salts it.
Derek, you are so sweet.
We absolutely adore you guys.
Today, he saved us, like
I can't
Words can't express.
You miss a step like that,
your whole Detour
goes to the trash.
This is why we absolutely
love Derek and Claire.
Hopefully that'll pay off later,
and they'll help us out with,
uh, the next half of this leg.
We are willing to help you up
until it's not helpful for us.
That's looking so good.
And then we're
gonna be cutthroat.
Ooh, I'm excited.
- Nice. Nice, good job.
- Beautiful.
Eight life jackets
and what else?
"One cooler full of ice
from the marked ice truck
in front of the restaurant.
"You must deliver
all of your items at once
to the marked sailboat."
So I think the technique
is I'll hold the ice
and you paddle,
and then we'll
switch if you're tired.
- Okay. I think that's good.
- Let's get the cooler.
- Oh.
Oh, you want to get the cooler?
Let's get the cooler.
Yeah, that's the ice truck.
That's the cooler.
It's not that heavy.
Where do we have to go?
- That boat over there?
- Yeah.
- All right.
- Okay. Eight, eight of these.
Let's attach
all of them together.
That's what I'm doing.
The waves are a little choppy,
but not that bad.
Looking good.
We got the ice.
All right, ready? Let's go.
Oh, let's go.
Ooh, that looks so good.
Okay. Let's check it.
- Okay.
- Check.
Uh, check.
Babe, this is not a good one.
It fell apart.
Where do you want me to put it?
- Over here?
- No, no, it's still okay.
Just let it, let it
- Right here.
- Right here. Keep going.
We're doing Fish Fry.
Oh, oh, I get to eat one?
- One.
- One?
- Mmm.
- Mmm.
Oh, delicious.
Mmm. Mmm.
- Ah.
- These-these are good.
Oh, no, gracias. No, gracias.
- Oh, no? No?
- No? Okay.
- No, no, no.
- Good.
- Ah.
- Muchas gracias.
- Muchas gracias.
- Mega Leg.
- Mega Leg.
"Find the tour guide here
for your next clue."
Guys, just do what we said.
- That was it. That was it.
- Okay. Thank you.
Okay, which one
do you want to choose?
Close to the demo.
- This one?
- Yep.
We're on the Mega Leg.
Come on, Derek.
Come on, come on, come on.
Uh, Playa El Palo.
- Palo.
- Pl-Playa.
- Palo?
- Yeah.
- This way. Yeah.
- That way?
- Cinco.
- Cinco.
I absolutely just killed
our team on that Roadblock.
The plan right now is just
for us to catch up to somebody.
Let's do it, let's do it.
Let's go fast.
All right.
Let's go
- Hold it, baby.
- Yeah.
- You got it?
- Yeah.
I want to pass those big waves.
Watch out.
Big wave, big wave. Hold it.
You got it, you got it.
Go, go, go, go, go.
- One more big wave, baby.
- Okay.
Let's go.
Watch out, watch out.
Hold it, hold it.
It was very difficult
getting out there,
'cause you're
against the current first.
And the rules are
if you spill too much ice,
you have to go back
and get some more.
But we're in a race, and we want
to nail this the first time.
Wave. Wave, wave, wave!
There was a moment there
where I almost lost the cooler.
Hold it. Hold it.
A wave just splashed us.
- Whoosh! And I'm just, like, the watercooler
- Heck yeah.
I felt like I was
falling for 30 seconds.
I was like this,
chasing the watercooler around.
I got it. Grab the board.
We got it. We got it.
We're good.
- We almost lost the ice
- Yeah.
We almost lost it.
All right, I want you to come
forward and sit right here.
There you go. Hold it.
Hold it nice and tight.
-Oh, my God! I can't do it.
-I'll do it. I'll do it. I'll do it.
- Ew.
- Okay. So which way do I do it?
Okay, so eyeballs
faced closest to here.
I think we're
getting a lot closer.
We just need
to get two more plates done.
When we take it off the grill,
do we need to pull them off
right as they're hot?
Well, let's go see.
I don't I'm not sure, babe.
Oh, God. I love you.
- Oh, this is actually
- Oh, that one's not good.
These look
- Ours look amateur.
- Amateurly-cooked.
- He takes it right off.
- Those are hot, yeah.
Give it, like, a minute,
and then we'll
just throw 'em on the plate.
Why can't I get this
to go in nice?
Oh, that's so disgusting.
They don't even smell.
I can't do this.
This is so gross.
- Okay. I'll do it.
- No, no, no.
- Am I doing it right?
- I got it. I got it.
We got this.
We got past the worst part.
We practiced for this!
Is that them over there?
Right there.
Bien, bien.
Here we go. Mega Leg.
Choosing the hard ones again.
Going over there
was pretty stressful
because you just don't
want to flip over
and go back and start again.
I'm so excited!
- Yay!
Wait, I got it.
Bien. Ciao.
- Adios.
- Bye.
Oh, God.
These are so disgusting.
Okay, so here's a difference.
I grew up eating fish.
Emily did not.
She does not like fish.
- They're probably ready.
- That middle one is ready.
Looking good, guys.
- They look really good.
- Thank you.
Wow. Gourmet chefs, over here.
-I know.
I don't know
if I'd necessarily eat them,
but yeah, they look good.
Shall we try?
Go the other way.
- Where do we return it to?
- The ice cooler.
- Fully cooked.
- Good?
- Dad, this one's for you.
- Oh, my gosh.
- Eating fish in Spain.
Eat it. Quickly.
Great job.
- Gracias. Gracias. Gracias.
- Gracias. Gracias.
- Okay.
- Dad, this is for you.
- Good luck, ladies.
- Good job, guys. - Thank you.
Come on, babe.
- Gracias.
- Listo. Gracias, amigo.
Muchas gracias.
We got to find this.
Let's just go.
Our fish fry skills
are not good.
I have never
cooked a fish in my life.
That one actually
does looks done, I think.
Not that one.
I need you to watch the fire,
'cause they're overcooking, Em.
- Okay.
- These are all done now.
We can't use any of them.
I have trouble
with perfectionism,
and I think we probably
could have been out of there
faster had I not
thought the fish
had to come off perfectly
off the skewer.
Oh, no. Can't use that one.
- You think they're gonna see it?
- Yeah.
So I-I slowed us down
a little bit there.
Are Marcus and Michael here yet?
Marcus, right here.
We could probably
make up some time.
Guess we'll see
when we get there.
- Mega Leg.
- Mega Leg.
Now you "whoo."
Ronda! Here we come!
- Emily and Molly have a chance.
- Yeah.
Michael and Marcus
are nowhere to be found.
We're thinking it's good
to have some extras made,
so that way we don't start
this process all over again.
Oh, we didn't salt them.
- We didn't salt them.
- Oh
Just the girls. Okay.
There's Michael and Marcus.
Look, right here.
- "Fish Fry. Sailboat Supply." Fish Fry.
- They're right here.
- Okay.
- He put six on one, and then he salted them.
- Six on there.
- And we're doing three of the skewers.
- Three.
Marcus and Michael
just showed up,
so we want to make sure we
get out of here soon.
We're just
trying to do exactly what
we think we saw the chef do.
I don't grill
a lot of fish of any kind.
It's mostly red meat.
- Okay.
- Check.
Let's just
do quite a few plates,
- so if we mess up, we got backups.
- Yeah. Yeah.
I think we're
gonna get a "no" on that.
It's not good.
He just tore our fish apart,
- Oh, you got to be kidding me.
- Damn it.
The game today was
"just don't go out."
We knew we were
gonna be a little bit slower,
especially with
Emily's injury to her leg.
Marcus and Michael,
they have it all,
so we knew we really
couldn't give up any leads.
As awful as that sounds,
if we catch Molly and Emily
and if it comes down to a run,
obviously we're gonna
pass them, right?
Which sucks, 'cause, like,
they're a great team,
but, obviously, in order to stay
in the race, we got to beat 'em.
We got to close the gap in
the challenge somehow, some way.
So hopefully we get this
in one try and get out of here.

Next time
onThe Amazing Race
Halfway done
with the Mega Leg.
Are we going the right way?
I'm really scared of heights.
I've never
put an earring on anybody.
Well, it's time you do it now.
- You got this, Claire. Come on.
- I hate this.
I hate this.
I hate it, I hate it.
I don't think I can do it again.
There's too much play,
then it'll collapse.
I'm so scared!
