Like Two Cats Fighting in a Car

Previously on
The Amazing Race
Nine teams cast their U-Turn
votes in Jaipur, India
and reached a decision.
Me and you are on the U-Turn.
- It is?
- Yeah.
My God.
Joel and Garrett
pushed through a grueling Detour.
I'm so thirsty.
I am so hot, and
I don't know where I'm going.
With the U-Turn
slowing down Steve and Anna Leigh
- Go! Dad, tell her to go.
- Let's go.
brothers Greg
and John saw an opportunity
We're all
fighting for first right now.
and seized it.
Team number one!
That's right!
At the Roadblock,
Anna Leigh wanted answers.
- Y'all U-Turned us.
- Look, I didn't U-Turn you.
Hey, I didn't U-Turn you.
We just wanted to get rid
of that hour and a half lead.
In a fight to stay in the race,
Robbin drew strength
from her past.
After I survived a brain tumor,
the death of my husband,
I got this
peacock tattoo on my arm
to symbolize
the beauty to the world.
After a long day getting lost..
Bro, this is so not the rickshaw
that we need to be doing this in.
brothers Liam and
Yeremi tok their final step onto the mat.
You have been eliminated
from the race.
- And
- We've done everything.
- I love you, man, and, dude
- I love you.
- All right.
- Greg and John
will be the first
to leave Jaipur, India
Route Info.
- "Fly to Frankfurt, Germany."
- Yeah! Let's go!
and fly 4,000
miles into the heart of Europe:
Heading to Germany, baby.
We have to go to a
travel ageny to pick up the tickets.
We're halfway through the race.
We're definitely
proving to ourselves
And myself, too
That, like, I am as good
as this person
that I look up to.
It's really nice to see,
like, our relationship
blossom out of this.
- It's here.
- Okay.
Okay. We'll be back. Thank you.
- Hello. Namaste.
- Thank you.
Flight to Frankfurt, Germany.
- There it is.
- Thank you.
- Take your leave.
- Yeah. - Okay.
I do still want to ask
if there's other flights.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Got our driver.
Everybody is on the same flight
to Germany,
which means
our first place is kaput.
And that's okay, 'cause we're
just gonna have to earn it back.
Have to earn it back.
Deutschland. Sehr gut.
Let's go.
"When you land, drive to Kaub."
I think this is where
the navigation skills
are gonna come in handy.
Very fast, please.
We're all gonna be equalized
heading into Germany.
We know we're driving
today, so that's a little scary for u.
- Let's pray to the baby Jesus
- That we drive safe today.
that we can drive.
"Fly to Frankfurt, Germany."
- All right, let's go.
- Let's go. Let's do it.
I'm so excited. We've
actually been to Frankfurt before.
We used to live in a little town
called Crailsheim, Germany,
where we were pregnant
with our first child.
That's kind of where
our little family was
- Yeah.
- Began.
Got to go fast.
Fast, fast, fast.
Got to go to the airport.
As the teams dwindle down,
it's definitely
getting more competitive.
We both miss our family.
Yeah, but it's been great just
to travel the world
with my best friend.
Fast, fast, fast.
- Let's go.
- Let's go.
- Come on, Dad.
- Feels good not to be ot
- after the day we had yesterda.
- We survived.
- That's all we cared about, was surviving.
- Surviving a U-Turn.
-Don't mess with Texas. And they did.
-Hey, we-we started out nice,
we showed a little
Southern hospitality, but now
- Now the claws are out.
- Now the claws are out.
There's not a place
I'd rather go right now.
And I love Germany.
I lived there for three years.
Kind of brings up, like
Old family memories? Yeah.
My late husband was stationed
in a little town
called Schweinfurt,
and he was part
of a Warrior Transition Unit.
I have a lot
of good family memories
from our time
that we spent in Germany.
We traveled a lot with our kid.
Just a lot of happy times.
This is the best country we could go to, at this point.
One of my children was born
in Germany, so I know some German.
This is the best-case scenario
for being
so far behind everybody else.
Thank God. Equalizer.
Frankfurt. To Frankfurt.
Right behind you.
Come on, come
on, come on. There it is.
Let's go, let's go.
- Dad.
- Okay.
Watch out, Lena.
There's a car pulling out.
Keep going, keep going
Pull in front of 'em.
Go in front of 'em.
Let's go, Malaina. Go, go, go.
Ready to do this, baby?
- Ready to do this, baby.
- Ready to do this, baby?
Teams will drive
themselves about 15 miles west
to this ferry
on the river Rhine,
then travel upriver
to the Burg Rheinstein
An imposing 14th century
medieval castle
with spectacular views
of Germany's
longest-stretching river.
While on board, they'll need
to exchange five euros
for a bag of historical coins
which they'll need to pay
their way out of the Roadblock.
We're going to a A66.
Take the right two lanes
and keep right at the junction.
Yeah, we're
going towards Wiesbaden.
- So get over?
- Yeah. You can get over.
Look at this squad right here.
Vroom. Vroom.
A Cooper squad.
Take that back.
My dad and I
have come up with a system
where I'm writing down
the step-by-step directions,
so he knows what's coming next.
And then I have a copy
of the directions myself,
so I can assist him
in navigating and looking.
But I want
to do whatever it takes
to get ahead in the race.
We're headed to leg seven,
and for us to have
three second place finishes,
we're feeling very
confident that we belong.
Million dollars
would be unbelievable.
It'd be life-changing.
Just not yet,
but keep following to Wiesbaden.
You're doing great.
Go to the, to the right.
To the right, to the right
Sorry, I know I don't know
my left from my right.
Know your left from your right.
Whoa, one team
went straight this way.
We were supposed
to be off that one, Robbin.
Well, then
you should say something.
I'm sorry. It was really quick.
So what do you want me
to do? You need to help me out here.
I'm just trying to
have you not snap at me right now.
I'm just trying to have
you give me the directions
as they're written.
We are going
in the damn field somewhere.
I don't think
we should be going this far.
We need to, like,
turn around somewhere because
- Yeah, I feel like we need to turn around.
- we're going deer hunting now.
Is this the GbR?
Yep, it's a
ferry, and it's in Kaub.
All right, hit that ferry.
They're turning right there.
Is there See a sign for it?
That looks like a ferry.
There, look.
"Faährgemeinschaft Kaub."
We're gonna get on this ferry
to get to Burg Rheinstein.
And we're gonna
exchange five euros
for a bag of historical coins.
- Todd, is this it?
- Yeah, this is it.
Where's the parking?
You don't park.
You park on the ferry, Lena.
All right, here we go.
Wait, wait, wait. "Kaub."
Wait. I think this might be it.
Everybody's got
to be here already.
Yep. There's the girls.
Freakin' everybody's here.
Just get on the ferry and go.
All right, we're on.
We found it.
Okay, what do we have here?
There's a little
road down there.
That wasn't the ferry, was it?
I don't believe so.
Are you sure
we don't just keep going?
How do we not see a ferry?
We've got to collect our coins.
Hey, sir,
are you the money changer?
- Five euros.
- Five euros. Thank you, sir.
Here is your witten.
Thank you.
Can I get some coins?
Here is your witten.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Your witten.
- Thank you.
This one?
- Does it say nine? Yeah.
- Yeah, this is nine.
I see Todd and Ashlie.
- See the bright orange shirt?
- Yeah.
There they are. There's
the-there's the brothers.
All right, so we have at least
three teams ahead of us.
You're gonna make a
left, so you're gonna go south.
- Start rolling.
- I'm rolling.
But-but Ashlie's not,
so I can't.
Dad, you got your bag ready?
My bag's ready.
Turn your car on, Lena.
I did. The car's on.
I don't know where I'm going.
I'm just driving.
Does that look like
where we're supposed to go over there?
To me, yes, but I don't
It looks like what we googled.
So I guess we just get on this
and hope for the best?
There's no getting off
the ferry at this point.
- Is this the
- No.
Where's that ferry?
Ten kilometers, ride.
I don't know what we want to do.
- Here we go.
- All right.
- "Kaub. Ten kilometers."
- Yep. Ten kilometers.
We got this.
We took the ferry
across the Rhine River again,
back to
Is this the east side?
Yes, the proper side.
So we're looking
for the proper ferry
to get the historical coins.
And then we'll go
to "Bong mar"
- Burg Rheinstein.
- Burg Rheinstein.
- All right. All right.
- A little more, a little more
He's saying a little more.
Feels so good
that we see another team.
Greg and John are
in a car up ahead of us,
so, pumped that
we see another team.
Let's go.
- Five euros.
- Five euros? Gladly.
Thank you.
- Here is your witten.
- Danke schoen.
- Danke schoen.
- Whoa, this is heavy.
- Five euros.
- Five.
Here is your witten.
Thank you.
All right, boys, let's do it.
Are we
the first ones here, guys?
Jog to the clue box.
Castles built
on the banks of the Rhine
were used as defensive
strongholds to illegally collect
tolls from traders
going up and down the river.
Since teams
have crossed the river,
they need to pay off
a robber baron with a witten
that they collected
on the ferry.
Paying the toll is easy.
The hard part is figuring out
how much witten is worth.
When they're debt-free
they can rappel
their way back into the race.
All right, I'll do it.
- I'll do it.
- All right.
This is your turn.
I'm gonna do the Roadblock.
Dad, take my bag, please.
Come on,
Morgan. Keep up. Let's go.
Right here.
Where's the posted formula?
- It's right there.
- All that?
"Pay a toll
of five groschen in witten."
Five groschen is 24 Heller.
So, in my bag was the witten.
We had to pay the robber baron
the proper amount
in order to enter the castle.
So one witten is two "rapper."
The coins are called wittens.
There was, like,
a formula that we had to follo.
The goal was
to make five groschen
out of the witten
that we had in our bag.
- One witten makes two rappen.
- 160.
- Two ra So
- Two rappen makes four Heller.
Four Heller.
The math was kind of difficult.
I think 12
witten makes five groschen.
No. No, no, no, no.
That makes one groschen.
My gosh, dude.
to get to this Kaub. This
- Faährgemeinschaft Kaub.
- Yeah.
- It's-it's completely easy. Yeah, yeah.
- You sure?
No, I don't know.
Is this it?
Yeah, Faähr to blah, blah, blah.
- Is this the right one probably?
- This is it.
- Look at the name.
- GbR.
- Got it, got it, got it, okay.
- Yeah.
He looks like a special little.
Amazing Racegentleman.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Yeah, it's perfect.
Here is your witten.
Thank you. How many more
you got in there?
So that's one witten right
there, which is two "rapper."
So I got
eight Heller right there.
The Roadblock was pretty simpl.
So there were three lines
of equivalent values,
and they-they just wanted
to know how much
was five of this one coin.
This guy.
Give me the right numbers.
Wait here.
Come in.
It was 15.
Before they could read
what they were supposed to do,
I was gone, which is great.
I just wanted us to get out
as quickly as possible,
'cause I didn't know what
the challenge was gonna be nex.
Thank you very much.
Watch your step and have fun.
Out of the group,
she's coming down first.
You're doing great, honey!
Just keep rappelling!
I'm propelling, Lena. Ooh.
I'm not sure what
rappelling is supposed to look like,
but she's doing something.
Thank you very much.
Come on, Lena.
"Drive to the city of Cologne
and find your next clue
at the Guürzenich Koöln."
All right, let's go.
Is it that easy?
Do you want to work together?
- Five groschen is 24 Heller.
- Five groschen is 24 Heller.
I think it's five, guys.
No, that can't be right.
One witten equals
two rappe "rapper."
So this is the same
as eight hellers.
- What's 24 divided by eight? Three?
- Groschen.
- Four
- Three, six, nine.
15. Right?
I'll go try it.
I'll yell if it's right.
Yeah, it is.
You're right. It's 15.
And then another five. 15.
Yes, this is correct.
Thank you, sir.
Todd, that's right.
- Go this way.
- Okay. Thank you.
It's okay.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Fifteen.
- Fifteen.
- Correct.
- Yeah.
Thank you.
Kick off that wall.
I can't see where I'm going.
Good job, girl. Good job.
Clue's right here.
- Over here, guys.
- Yep.
"Who's Ready for Change?"
- I can be ready for change.
- Do it.
Let's go, baby.
"Who's Ready for Change?"
I am.
All right, speed, speed, speed.
Let's go, Smithe.
Yeah, that's more like it.
- Little wild. Got a little wild there.
- You got it.
Let your mustache guide you.
Yes, sir.
So I've got to pay him
five groschen in witten.
Okay. One witten
is two "rapper."
This is all four Heller.
Yo. I don't think
I have enough coins.
- You definitely have enough. Redo your math.
- Okay.
Yeah. Okay.
Thank you.
Corey whizzes past it,
which was pretty intimidating.
- It's okay. Stay here.
- Yes.
My gosh. My gosh.
I really just blanked
at math there.
Let's try this.
I studied computer science
and computer engineering.
Now I work at Google.
So I definitely got frozen
with my math for a second.
- It's correct.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.
You got this?
- Take a second to read it.
- Okay. Yeah.
I think we got a
bit of a drive ahead of us.
You want to ask these people?
Just how to get to Cologne?
- Hi!
- Hi.
Hi. How are you guys?
We have to get the Cologne.
Is there any way
we can just borrow your phone
just to look at directions
for how to get there?
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
- Danke schoen. Danke schoen.
- Danke schoen. Danke schoen.
I didn't have
the time or the energy
to figure out
that math puzzle, so
- Correct number?
- I don't know.
You tell me.
- All right.
- Go back to the lord.
From process of elimination,
I realized that I could just
This is not correct.
- bring six coins.
- No good.
- Seven coins.
- No good.
Eight coins, nine coins.
- No good.
- Until
Fifteen. Yes.
- Yes?
- Yes.
Stay here.
Fifteen was the number
and then I got to go rappel
down the wall.
Thank you.
- Here?
- Right here. I think down here,
'cause it says "Faähre."
That's what I'm assuming.
This is cool.
Stop the engine.
We made it. Dear Lord.
Um, "While on board the ferry",
"exchange five euros
for a bag of historical coins
from the money changer."
- So that's what we have to do.
- So we got to do that now.
So let's get
out. Let's do that now.
Do you know where we pay?
- Are you the money changer?
- I am the money changer.
- Okay.
- So I need five
Yeah, I need five
five euros in change, basically.
- Okay. I can change.
- Okay.
Thank you.
- I have a question.
- Thank you.
Have you
seen any other teams here?
- Just one.
- No? Ju We the first?
There's always hope.
We may be
the first team on the boat.
She's a pro.
- Danke schoen.
- Danke schoen.
-Enjoy your day. Thank you. Thank you.
-Thank you.
They stopped to get
directions. Let's just follow them.
- We're going back the other way?
- Yeah.
We caught up to Greg and John,
which is kind of a relief.
I guess, for now,
we're just gonna follow them.
Seems like
we're all bunched together
within, like,
15 minutes of each other,
which is, of course, tight.
And just, again, directions.
We got to make sure that we
are beating them in directions.
We're having a tough time
getting the right directions
to get us to
the parking garage with a car.
If it was walking there,
we'd be there.
Is this the turn?
No, that is the parking lot.
I thought that self-driving,
we would be lost less,
but we've been lost quite a bit.
I don't-I don't know anymore.
- Are you getting, upset?
- A little bit. A little bit.
I feel like
we are way far behind.
Have a little
faith. W-We'll be okay.
I didn't see any of the streets.
All right.
Take a left here, Lena.
No. That's a right.
That's a right.
Okay, sorry about that.
- Sorry.
- Damn, Lena. Like
Morgan, I told you to check me,
- when we turn.
- Lena, I mean, it's a left.
Chill out.
Let's think
about positive things,
- 'cause now you're just spitting negativity at me.
- It's annoying.
- It's, like
- Morgan, I made a wrong turn!
Stop screaming.
- I made a wrong turn.
- No one's screaming at you.
Stop screaming. It's annoying.
Dad, pay attention.
Dad, pay attention.
I-I don't know
where I'm going, Anna Leigh.
When we're at an
intersection, you have to pay attention
Well, you got to
tell me when they're coming.
I can't see from back here.
My God.
You're gonna sit
your ass back here in a minute
and ride a little bit.
- See how it feels.
- No, 'cause then we're really gonna get lost.
You've done such a great job.
You were supposed
to be the navigator.
Well, when you
can't see, it's a little hard to.
I need you to be, like,
part of this with me and not
I can't just
I don't know
what you're talking about,
you're doing this
all by yourself.
No, I'm not saying
I'm doing this all by myself,
but I'm trying to focus
on driving and speed limits.
- And everybody else is zooming past us.
- Well, maybe I need to drive.
And I'm the only one that's
- I'm sorry, Dad.
- I'm sorry for being so
passive and listening
to your smart-ass mouth.
You don't know how to say sorry.
Well, there's only so much
a person can take, Anna Leigh.
Well, I could say
the same thing about you.
So we've made
it to the outskirts of Cologne.
We're still following the boys.
Things are getting
a little bit confusing,
so we're doing our best
to just stay right behind them.
"Find your next
clue at Guürzenich Koöln."
- Left or right?
- Let's take a right.
It's frustrating
that they've just kind of
been tailing us the whole time.
- There we go. This is it. Yep.
- All right, there it is.
Found it.
- All right. Ready to run?
- Yeah.
- Is this where we're supposed to be parked?
- GREG and JOHN: Yeah.
Okay. Okay.
Okay. Let's go.
We can keep up with them.
Get our stuff. Let's go.
Where is it?
- Back here?
- I think so.
All right, we're
racing for our lives right now.
- Come on.
- Is this it?
- I see eight clues here.
- Johnny, let's go.
That's what I'm saying,
Gregory, let's go.
- Good job, you guys.
- Ready?
Gregory, we're
fighting for first, dude.
We're fighting for first.
Route Info.
"It's time to horse around."
"Join Cologne's carnival."
German carnivals date
back to the Middle Ages, and every yea,
the biggest and most famous one
happens in Cologne.
Teams will get
a taste of what it's like
when one team member rides
a Husar bicycle
A horse-cycle
And the other throws out
roses to the crowd.
Once they've completed
a short obstacle course,
they'll be presented
with a clue.
Sweet, fun.
"Take the staircase
to the great hall
on the second floor."
- All right, Go, go, go.
- Come on, Gregory.
Let's go.
Get your costume on.
We were so
excited, 'cause we thought
we were maybe in last place
at that point.
So finding out
we were in first place
completely changed our attitud,
changed the way
we approached the challenge.
It was just so exciting.
- Should we go for it?
- Yep.
All right.
This is a little different.
- Help me out here.
- Turn your wheel.
- We going this way?
- This is a little different than a bike.
And turn. Okay, you're good.
All right, ready, Robbin?
- You got it.
- Whoa. Okay.
Gregory, you look beautiful.
GREG and JOHN: Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey!
Hey, hey, hey,

How you guys doing? Hey!
The carnival was my favorite
part of the race so far.

That was ridiculous.
That was so fun.
It was a fever dream,
but one that
I would like to dream again.
That was so crazy!
That was so fun!
"Make your way on foot to the..
to find your next clue."
- That was wild.
- Let's go. We have to beat them.
"to find your next clue."
That was crazy.
This is Martinstrasse.
Right here.
- Finally.
- Clue.
All right.
We're gonna
have to ride this horse bike.
This is right up
your alley. You ride the bike.
I was born
to ride that horse.
It is high.
I am on my high horse.
This is cool.
- Go. Go, go.
- Hey!

- Okay. All right.
- All right, let's go.
It's a bridge
where they have locks on it.
My favorite
part about the carnival
is how into it my dad got.
I look back, and my dad just
Thank you. Thank you.
I still don't even know
what that carnival was.
I'm at an absolute
loss for words.
I don't know what just happened.
Excuse me.
We're trying
to find the-the castle.
- Burg?

- Could you help me?
- I can try.
We're looking
for this parking garage.
Are we close?
No, you guys are,
like, nine minutes drive.
Thank you so much
for helping us.
- We've been going in circles.
- Slight slight what?
- Left? Okay.
- Thanks so much.
-Thank you so much. We really appreciate you.
-Thank you.
Turn around
and go down the main street.
I don't know
where the main street is.
That's what
I'm trying to tell you.
Please let me drive.
- Please let me drive.
- Here, get in.
You can't read the map.
Whatever, Lena. Whatever.
- Here.
- Lena, stop saying about how I can't read a map.
You can't read a map and drive.
- And I can't read a map.
- Lena.
My God.
We cannot be this stupid.
- Is this it?
- "Parkhaus." I don't know.
Does that
say anything on our clue?
It says "Am Guürzenich."
- That was what we just drove into.
- Okay.
- Do you see any other cars?
- I'm fixing to look.
I think I do.
All right, let's run.
- All right, Dad, are you running or are you walking?
- Yeah.
I'm trying
to put my backpack on.
Don't friggin'
talk to me like that no more.
Yup. We have it.
- Roadblock.
- Roadblock.
"Who's Feeling Locked In?"
This Roadblock requires teams
to unlock
their next clue. But first,
they have to find
a marked love lock
amongst hundreds of thousands
of love locks
along the Hohenzollern Bridge.
And to open it, they'll need
to figure out the combination,
which just so happens to be
the number of
Cologne's favorite cologne.
Whoever didn't do
the other one has to do this one.
All right, I got it.
You good?
- Yeah, I'm good.
- Okay.
- Found it, Robbin.
- I know.
"Who's Feeling Locked In?"
- "If your partner"
- All right, you go.
Hi. Can I
ask you a quick question?
So, I just have to know,
what's the name of the oldest
cologne produced in Cologne?
- Can I just look that up real quick? You are the bomb.
- Um
Can you help me find the oldest
cologne produced in Cologne?
Eau de Cologne.
4-7 Okay, 4-7-1-1.
- 4-7-11?
- Yeah.
Thank you so much.
My God.
This bridge is so long.
The bridge was ginormous.
There were so many locks
on the bridge.
Come on, baby.
How you doing, Robbin?
I haven't found one.
Have you found one?
There's a lot of locks.
Lot of locks.
I am looking for a marked lock
on the south side
of the bridge that uses
a four-digit code to unlock.
It's here somewhere.
It's here somewhere.
It was very difficult
to find a marked lock,
mainly because we're looking fr.
Amazing Race colors,
which are yellow and red.
Germany's flag's
yellow, red and black.
So a lot of the locks
were in that color scheme.
What am I looking for?
Okay, focus.
My attention to detail is good
when I know
what I'm looking for.
It's hard to not know
what you're looking for
and try to spot it out.
I saw Robbin behind me.
She was kind of
really taking her time
and looking
at each lock really closely,
but I thought it would stick ot
a little bit more than that,
so I was
really cooking with gas.
Got it.
I got a lock of some sort.
Yeah, I see a marked piece here,
but I don't
see where the lock is.
Unless this is just
a random Amazing Racelock.
No shot. No shot.
I don't see
a lock combo anywhere.
Okay. This is Spain.
That's Spain.
How random is that?
Come on, Spain.
My heart just went so heavy.
Where'd they get those outfits?
That concert hall ended up
being my favorite thing.
It gave me a
second to step back and, like,
see him and, like,
see where we were
and see all the people
and all the different, like,
life around us.
It was really cool.
When I get stressed at home,
he's the one I call
to, like, calm me down.
And so when we're
on a level playing field,
and he's
just as stressed as I am
and we start, like,
bickering back and forth,
then it goes absolutely nowhere.
So it's I-I need
to just be more patient.
This whole thing's about stress,
so we've
got to not get stressed.
- Thank you.
- Thank you very much.
- Let's go.
- My God!
Good job, Dad!
My eyes are getting numb
just from, like, so many locks.
Come on.
Focus, focus, focus.
Got it.
So the lock
Yup, just like I thought
Four-letter combo lock, baby.
You kidding me? You kidding me?
This was so obvious.
So freaking obvious. All right.
Did Greg
get it? Looks like he got it.
My gosh.
Mamma mia, Gregory!
Holy cow.
- Hey, it's what we do.
- It's what we do.
- It's what we do.
- It's okay. Good job.
Thank you so much. Come on.
- Detour, baby?
- Shoot.
Detour. "Just for Kicks
or Matter of Taste."
is one of only two nations
to have won both
the men's and women's World Cu.
Not surprisingly, it's the
number one sport in the countr.
Germans love soccer so much
they've combined it
with the sport of darts.
In this Detour,
teams have four shots
to score exactly 66 points.
Mustard seed
has been around so long
it's even mentioned
in the Bible.
It's the perfect condiment
for brats.
It's used in salad dressings
and sauces.
It really is no wonder
that mustard seed is the
number one spice in the world.
Danke schoen.
Mustard flavors
range from sweet to spicy.
This Detour requires teams
to decipher what's what.
After sampling
nine popular flavors,
teams must identify them
by their German name.
We're doing a Matter of Taste.
We're doing
Matter of Taste, baby.
We need to get to this place,
so I'm gonna ask someone.
Yeah. geez,
Robbin was taking it slow.
Why am I not finding this?
Why am I not finding this?
Come on.
Hoping I'm not here all night.
Hopeful that no one else
is here yet.
- You see the clue?
- Yeah. There it is.
- Roadblock.
- Roadblock.
"Who's feeling locked in?"
Okay, this is me.
I'm gonna run a little bit
further down this way.
Marked. Marked. Marked.
I don't even know
what the marked ones
are gonna look like.
There's other people here now.
Come on, get it together. Focus.
"Open it using the name
of the oldest produced cologne
in Cologne."
So, this, I don't even know.
This is gonna be hard.
Girl, what are the
marked ones? Do you know?
- Down there.
- Okeydoke.
I see Robbin just, like,
just sprinting back,
and so I ask her, I'm like,
"What does it look like?"
And she just kind of
pointed back.
She was like,
"You need to go that way."
So I'm like,
"Okay, I need to go this way."
I still don't know
what I'm looking for.
- Okay, good.
- Thank you.
- You start.
- Thank you.
Detour. "Just for Kicks
or Matter of Taste."
- What do you think?
- Matter of Taste.
- Here we go.
- Okay.
All right. Well,
let's now go cover our asses.
- We're there.
- You got to be kidding me.
It was that easy?
There was nothing easy about it.
Let's go, Morgan.
we still have a chance.
There's only six cars here.
Look at that.
Let's go.
All right, so
Everybody got their clue.
"Who's ready for change?"
I'll do it.
"Follow the path
up to the castle entrance
with your witten."
Ten. Says, "Pay a toll
of five groschen in witten."
I have
Where do I get the witten from?
What the hell is a witten?
Because right now,
I only got five euros of change.
So maybe
I have the wrong change.
That's what I'm thinking.
Yeah, I think
I have the wrong change.
You got it?
No, I think
we have the wrong change.
'Cause it's
So, let's go. Let's
- We have the wrong change.
- Are you serious?
Yes. We need to get, like,
ancient money
from the money changer.
My goodness.
We just pulled up at the ferry.
While they letting people off,
we got to hurry up.
- Sir.
- Hey, you gave us the wrong coins.
- We need we need wittens.
- Sorry.
- Wittens?
- Yeah.
Do you have other coins
besides euros?
Other coins?
- Yes. - No, only euros.
- Only
So we need to get off.
So, we need
How is that possible?
this is not the right ferry
because this says
"Faähre Loreley."
Excuse me.
Um, do you know where.
Faährgemeinschaft Kaub GbR Ferry?
- Kaub Faähre?
- Yes.
Okay, so it's further down?
- Yes, but, like, ten kilometers.
- Ten kilometers?
We're at the wrong ferry.
I hope this is the answer.
- Let's go. Let's go.
- Let's go.
- Hey, let's go, baby.
- Here we are.
- Hey.
- Hello.
Okay. We'll go here.
- Yeah, taste some
- Yeah.
Gonna taste some mustards,
memorize the names,
- and then recite them back.
- Honig. Honig. Honig. - Okay.
We just went to taste
it. We just got some spoons,
and it was like
we were in Baskin-Robbins.
Chicago is a big mustard place.
You're not even allowed
to put ketchup on a hot dog.
So we know some of the
the famous mustards, but these
were these were wonky.
- Feurig scharf.
- Feurig scharf.
This one's spicy.
Whoa. Whoa!
The extra layer on top of this
was remembering the name,
which they were all German.
- Feurig.
- Feurig.
- Honig.
- Honig?
- Weisswurst.
- Weiss
- Weisswurst.
- Weisswurst.
- Weiss wurst.
- Weiss wurst.
- Like vice-versa.
- Bier.
This was such a good move.
This is fun.
Whoa. A double Roadblock.
Trust you.
Let's go, babe. You got this.
Found it.
"Open it using the name
of the oldest cologne"
The name of the oldest cologne.
Excuse me? Do you have a phone?
I need to know the name
of the oldest cologne
produced in cologne.
You're the best!
Thank you so much.
Um, sure.
As soon as I got the lock,
Rob comes up, and he's like,
"Do you know this?"
So I just wrote it down for hi.
You know, we know
that teams are behind us.
I'm just like, "Hey,
let's just get out of here."
Thank you so much.
- Detour. I say Just for Kicks.
- My lord.
I mean, darts are ter
Like, I'm not good at that.
Do you think you
can do it with soccer balls?
I don't know
how to play darts, so
- Let's do Just for Kicks.
- Whatever.
Keep the day rolling.
We're gonna do Just for Kicks.
There it is, Dad. I see it.
Come on, come on.
"If your partner performed
the previous Roadblock"
You have to do this one.
"Find a combination lock.
Open it using the name
of the oldest cologne."
The carnival felt
like Mardi Gras,
but for 90% of our drive today,
we're like two cats
fighting in a car.
And then they're like, "Okay",
"you're gonna
get on this giant bike
and smile and have a good time".
We were just
really stressed because we knew
that we were
at the back of the pack.
Thank you.
Thank you. Thank you.
- There it is.
- Is this it?
- We're here.
- My goodness.
- Let's go.
- Up here.
There's the bikes,
there's the outfits.
- Let's go.
- Okay.
"Make your way on foot
to Hohenzollernbruücke
to find your next clue."
Okay, grab
the flowers. Follow me.
Hi, everybody.
Come on, we got to go.
Let's go!
Thank you.
Thank you!
Where is the ferry?
No, we're not
I mean,
we're in the city of Kaub, so
Let's pull
let's pull into somewhere.
Here is a guy on the street.
Excuse me?
We're trying
to find the, um the ferry.
-The Faehre The Faehre Kaub Ferry.
Just all the way further.
All the way at the end
on this road?
- Yeah. Yeah.
- Just take this all the way down?
- Yeah, that's right.
- Okay. Thank you.
- No worries.
- So, 30 minutes. It says
- Yeah.
- 29 kilometers.
So how are we going
the wrong directions?
All right, thank you.
- Where is it?
- Right there.
- You sure?
- Yeah, it's marked.
-Up the staircase. up the staircase.
Up the staircase.
- My lord.
- Hey!
Ooh! I don't
know if I'm ready for this.
Todd's done competitive sports
his entire life.
I haven't. And first of all,
I've never played darts before.
I don't even know how it scored.
I don't know anything about it.
You have to get 66 exactly?
And then, also,
I never played soccer.
Like, that is not my thing.
- Right.
- Okay.
All right. Heat it up.
- Okay. Ready, baby?
- Yeah.
We might get stuff
wrong on this, but let's just go back.
Yeah, that's fine.
So we go to the judging table.
They had the nine mustards
lined up.
And then, after each time
that we tried a mustard,
we had to say
what the mustard was.
- I'm gonna go knoblauch.
- Okay.
A lot of them tasted
very similar.
So I would taste one,
and I'd be like,
"this could be"
- Sweet? Is it sweet?
- What do you say?
- You.
- Riesling.
One of us would take a lick,
and we'd be like,
"What's he thinking?"
This one's "bowf" or whatever.
No, no.
Maybe not. Maybe not.
- I was thinking bauern.
- Okay.
Then bauern.
- I think over here.
- Ooh. Robbin and Chelsea.
We're gonna
remember what they are, okay?
That is honig.
- Honig.Honey.
- Yeah.
- Sorry, it's not right.
- No worries. No?
- Okay.
- All right. Thank you.
So we don't
know what we got wrong.
- Get your tummies ready.
- It's tough.
So we got six.
Aw. geez.
It's pretty hard.
Any tricks on how to kick it?
Just get under it with your toe.
Watch out.
66 exactly?
- geez Louise.
- How do I get under it?
Step on the side
of the ball and kick it.
So frustrating.
All right. I don't think
we're gonna get this.
- Yeah, it's gonna take forever.
- Yeah.
So, all right,
we're gonna switch Detours.
We first chose the soccer darts.
I just imagined myself doing it
and I did not think of my wife.
It's just too hard.
And, you know, husband fail.
- Hey, y'all.
- Good luck.
- It's hard. We're switching.
- It's hard?
- Whoa.
- 66 exactly. Too hard.
Do you remember where it was?
Right past that bridge.
This is really cool.
Let's do this!
Great. Thank you.
My dad and I play a lot
of darts, but never foot darts.
My God.
- Knoblauch.
- Knoblauch?
Yup. I'm ready when you are.
- Okay. Let's give it a try.
- Let's get it a try.
All right, let's do it.
My mouth is just dry as heck.
Come on. We got this.
- Knoblauch?
- Knoblauch.Yeah.
Um meerrettich?
Okay, next one.
That one is Riesling.
Next one.
That one's yours.
"Bauer scharf."
That one's bier.
This one's my, um
Let's go back. I'm sorry.
I think that's honig.
- I think so, too.
- Yeah.
That one first one
might be the honig.
- Okay, let's go.
- Okay.
- And then, the meerrettich is the other one.
- Okay.
- Yup.
- Bauern.
- Perfect.
- Cool, cool! Thank you.
Thank you.
You're the bomb. Thank you.
- Hello.
- Thank you.
Can we get an order, please?
What's your favorite mustard?
- Ooh.
- I would say definitely the weisswurst.
- Guten Tag.
- Danke schoen.
Danke schoen.
- And this. - Hey!
- Hey!
- Danke schoen.
- Danke schoen. Danke schoen.
Then what is this one?
This one's not mine.
All right, good job.
Um, I forget the name of it.
I don't know.
Okay, let's go back then.
- Route Info.
- Route Info. Yes.
"Race to the Pit stop."
Germany is the world's
number one exporter
of chocolate products.
This billion-dollar business
is on full display
at this enormous
chocolate museum.
The last team to find me here
on the banks of the Rhine
will be eliminated.
Dude, let's
go. Let's go, let's go.
We're there. So close.
- Okay, let's focus, big time.
- Okay.
I'm getting
way on down the bridge.
Found one of 'em.
"Open it using the name
of the oldest cologne
produced in Cologne."
I can get hints.
Do you know a cologne made
in Germany with four numbers?
47-11. I'm gonna try it.
He said
he said it's just a number.
The one that worked.
I'm gone.
Let's go, Dad!
Lock. And here is the next.
- Boy.
- Trash. Detour.
- We're gonna do the mustard.
- We're gonna do the mustard.
Ferry coming up. Kaub.
We passed it about 15 times.
- No, we didn't.
- I saw this sign already.
Go here. I'm not sure.
There's the old damn man.
Here's the money man.
- Hello.
- Hi.
75 euros for the witten,
- or the historical
- The bag. The bag!
- Here is your witten.
- Look at the wittens.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
That don't look
nothing like the euros.
Joel and Garrett are gonna
- try and outwork us.
- I need some water.
We're not
getting outworked today.
- My gosh, yeah, Morgan, let's go!
- All right.
We just wanted
the beard brothers
to feel like
they couldn't catch up with us.
- Roadblock.
- Roadblock.
- I'll perform this one.
- Okay.
- Can you help me? Okay.
- Yeah.
So, the whole
mental strategy
was race fast enough
for them to feel like
they're by themselves.
- 47-11.
- Yeah.
- Okay. Thank you so much.
- Yeah.
- Yeah. Good luck.
- Thank you.
There still could be
a team or two behind us.
We just can't let them catch us.
Boy, this day
just will not get any easier.
When I'm about halfway
through the bridge,
it hits me that because we are
possibly the sixth team there,
all of the locks
on the first side of the bridge
are probably gone.
So then I'm like, "let me
kick this up to high gear."
A marked combination lock.
Then, as soon
as I start running,
I see this huge,
like, red and yellow lock.
You got it?
I got it. Let's go.
Thank you.
We got to switch off. Detour.
- We're gonna taste.
- We're gonna do Taste.
Let's ask somebody where to go.
All right. Clue box.
- Did they just get there, or?
- I think so.
just got done, probably.
- It's gonna be a race.
- Okay. Perfect.
- Thank you so much.
- You've got to
- All right, let's go, Lena.
- Okay.
"Who's feeling locked in?
"If your partner performed
the previous Roadblock,
-you must perform this one." So, I'm feeling locked in.
We're fairly certain
we're in last place right now.
May I please use
your phone for a moment?
- Phone? Okay.
- Yeah.
But Lena and
Morgan had this finished
by the time we got here
and they were right ahead of u.
That's my combination. Okay.
It was, in theory, easy.
I got to find the locks
quick as possible.
Come on, extra lock.
We need to make sure
that the first two leaves it
with a number
that's mathematically possible
for us to get 66.
Three is garbage.
You have to get exactly 66.
And so, it essentially,
it just became making sure that
your first three kicks
set you up to where
last kick you knew
what you were aiming for.
Geez. Sent that ball.
And then at that point
it became,
"Are we actually that good
at aiming these kicks?"
- Ooh.
- 25, so that's
- Wait, wait, wait. 50.
- No.
- Bullseye is only worth 25.
- Okay.
So we need 17.
Almost as good as me.
The records show otherwise.
17. Hell, yeah. Let's get this.
One away.
Okay. We can do this.
I think we can do this.
We're ready this time.
Okay. What one was this?
Is that garlicky?
Is that garlic? Knoblauch.
- Feurig scharf?
- Yeah.
Feurig scharf?
And it's the Bauer
- Bauern.
- Bauern.Yeah.
- That's fine.
- My God.
I never want
to eat mustard again.
Thank you so much.
What is your favorite mustard?
I would say
let's go with Riesling.
Okay. Come on.
This way, Chels. Come on.
- How was it?
- It's hard, but it's doable.
? I'm gonna
throw up mustard. ? Okay.
I should have picked
this one 'cause I love mustard.
- We do love mustard.
- Okay.
Come on, Andrea. You got it.
We're here. Very much déjà vu.
we're not out till
Phil tells me I'm out.
Philly strong.
A bag of historical
I'm tired,
but I'm gonna stick to it.
Team to beat, baby.
- The team to beat.
- Team to beat.
- Hey!
- Hey!
- Hello.
- There you go.
Welcome in Cologne, Germany.
- Thank you. Danke schoen.
- Danke schoen. Thank you.
Have you ever heard
of the Baron of Lies?
- No. - No.
- This is the Baron of Lies.
And legend has it that
he took off on a cannonball.
He sat on a cannonball,
rode the cannonball
up through the air, then jumped
on another cannonball
and came back.
Well, Greg and John,
I have some amazing news.
- Tell us, Phil.
- Give us the news.
- You are team number one!
- Let's go, baby!
And there is more good news.
As the winners
of this leg of the race,
you have won $4,000 each,
Which you can enjoy after the race.
We came out
here to prove to ourselves
that we could do it,
that we can take on challenges,
and we are crushing
these challenges,
which we just
are so happy to see.
- We have another team.
- Congrats, girls.
Good job, ladies.
- Yes!
- Great job, great job.
Robbin and Chelsea,
I am pleased to tell you
that you are team number two.
- Hey, y'all. - Riesling.
- Riesling.Okay.
- Are you ready?
- Want to try it?
- Yup, let's try it.
- Thank you.
- Edelpilz.
- Edelpilz.
- Bauern.
- Bauern.
- "Mega-tith."
- "Mada-titch."
- Meerrettich.
- No, "meg."
- G with a D.
- "Mega-tich."
- Meerrettich.
- "Megatich."
Tastes like your
Mine tastes more light.
- "Megatish."
- "Megatish." - : Nein.
- Meerrettich.
- "Megatish." - "Megatish."
- "Meer-ret-tich."
- "Meg-a-tish." - "Meg-a-tish."
With an R.
- "Meg-a-tish."
- "Meg-er-tish."
- "Meger-tish?"
- "Maggot dish."
Feurig scharf.
- "Mega-tish." - "Mega"
- There's an R. There's
- "Mega-teersh."
- "Meta-tish. Meta-tish."
The first thing
they did is make sure
we were pronouncing 'em right,
which we did not.
- "Macca-ditch?"
- "Ma-rah-titchy."
- "Megatich." - Meerrettich?
- Merr merritch?
- Meerrettich.
- Yeah.
Had a little Texas twang
to 'em, but we got close.
- Knoblauch. Knoblauch.
- Okay. Knoblauch. I got it.
- Knock your block off.
- Remember it?
- All right. Gut gemacht.
- Yeah. All right.
Thank you.
- Got it?
- Pit Stop. We can't let anyone beat us.
- Let's go.
- All right, let's run.
We got this.
That's easier. Just
don't do a running approach.
I should have known.
When you play darts,
you want
to remove all the variables.
At one point, I figured out
a strategy where I used
what I know about actual darts,
and in actual darts,
you want
to have less movement involved
and just keep it
your elbow moving only.
So instead of taking a running
start I planted my left foot
and just one motion kicked,
and I was able
to control it a lot better.
So I have 42,
so you need 24.
The one time
we don't want a bullseye.
So then we decided
to switch to having
my dad go first
on the first two kicks.
Let me.
'Cause I figured out
a little bit of a way to aim.
So I need 28.
All right, we need 17.
Let's go!
Okay, you got it.
- Here's your clue.
- Thank you, thank you.
Let's go. That was electric.
So just say a name.
If we have to do it again,
we have to do it again.
- Knoblauch.
- Knoblauch.
- Let's just taste one more time.
- All right, we'll come back.
- "Rise-ling?"
- Riesling.
Weisswurst, Edelpilz,
bier, bauern.
- It's "bauern."
- Bauernand bier. - Konig
The German names were difficul.
"Floggin-Shawn," "wisen-wurt."
Meerrettich, "floring scharf."
It's got some kick to it.
- It's going up my nose.
- Gonna make me sneeze.
- That's bauern. Bauern.
- You do that.
Bauern. - Perfect!
- Let's go. We're gonna do it.
- Finally!
As many times as we want,
so let's go.
Go to the next window.
- Okay, Lena.
- Hello.
- What is your favorite mustard?
- I like
- the weisswurst.
- Edelpilz.
- We get a little snack.
- We get a snack.
- My mouth's on fire.
- Meerrettich?
- Okay. Dad.
- Feurig scharf?
- Correct. - Amazing.
- Thank you.
- Hi. Guten Tag.
- Guten Tag.
- What is your favorite mustard?
- I'm gonna do the biersen.
Hopefully, she'll figure it ou.
'Cause time is of the essence,
and it's just getting so late.
So I ran all the
way across the bridge.
I didn't see it.
I ran all the way back.
I still didn't see it.
Then I started
questioning everything.
Lena and Morgan
got it done quick.
They didn't go all the way down
this bridge and back.
Took me long enough.
This is the way.
All right. Thank you.
Hold on to the clue.
Way to go!
Thank you.
Sigh of relief.
I'm looking at every lock.
None of them
are standing out as a
marked combination lock yet.
How do I prevent myself
from getting despondent here?
Turns out the kind of task
that's toughest for me
is the "needle
in the haystack" task.
I was having flashbacks
to the tile challenge
that we did in Vietnam,
where I had
to find the certain tile,
and I was getting
left in the dust on that
"needle in a haystack"
challenge also.
Well, I'm not gonna give up.
I'll keep looking for it till
Phil walks out on this bridge
and tells me that all
the other teams have checked in,
which might be soon.
Many people would have
gone insane by now.
I still got a little bit in me
before I go nuts.
Or I'm already nuts,
and that's why
this isn't making me crazier.
I got it.
Son of a gun.
47 11.
Let's go.
Nice job.
Way to not give up, man.
- Got it.
- That was rough, man.
- Okay. Okay.
- Thank you. - Nice job.
- Detour.
- Detour! Know you wanted to do eating.
You want to do the mustard?
If you want to.
So delicious.
And look behind you, guys.
We have a team coming in.
Todd and Ashlie,
you are team number three.
- Yes, three. Nice.
- Rob and Corey,
that would make you
team number
- four.
- Four.
- Nice. Nice.
- Nice. Good job, guys.
We're almost there.
- Right here?
- It's this one.
- How you doing? - There we go. Boy.
- Okay, so, we got color
and taste.
We decided
from the very beginning,
we're not gonna ever complain,
we're not gonna ever
get pissed off,
so we were fully in the mode of
"Let's just enjoy
the little bit of Amazing Race
we have left."
- Feurig scharf. Feurig scharf.
- Feurig scharf.
- Hey, guys.
- We brought our weenies.
- We did, too.
- We did, too!
I was running up. I went back to get 'em.
- What's up, Phil?
- Here, get your foot on that mat.
What's going on?
Steve and Anna Leigh,
today you are team number five.
You get a chance
to fight another day.
Morgan and Lena, that would
make you team number six.
- Six.
- Thank God.
- Hey, we ain't last.
- We're not last.
You think that one's honig?
Yeah, it was honig.
Gosh. Honig. Scharf.
Knowing that we were
eliminated, knowing
we were the last team
out there,
the stress kind of melted away,
and we just started having fun.
- That is correct. All right!
- Yes!
You got it.
- Congratulations.
- Thank you.
Hi. I got something for you.
- Yes!
- My goodness.
- I wanted sausage so bad!
- And this one. -
We haven't eaten
since 6:00 this morning.
It's been a long, rough day.
We're fairly certain
we're in last place right now,
- but we're having fun.
- It's been-it's been fabulous.
We're having fun.
"Race to the Pit Stop."
- "Schokoladen Museum."
- All right.
- I think I saw that name
- So it must be those stairs right over there?
I saw that name on it.
Yeah, it's right there.
- All right, let's get out of here.
- All right.
Let's get to Phil.
You drew out my day,
but, hey,
I hope you had a good one.
We did our best,
and I'm proud of it.
Well, you should be.
You should be really proud.
You know, I said to you
at the start
of the race that it was gonna
be a tough competition.
Then I also said that
we would be going to a country
that we've never been to before.
you guys still have a shot
at possibly
visiting that country.
- I'm sorry. What?
- Wh-When?
When are we gonna
have that shot?
Right about now, when I tell you
that you're team number seven.
- Are you kidding me?!
- Don't mess with us, Phil.
I'm not messing with you.
You're team number seven.
You're still
in The Amazing Race.
I can't even laugh
about it right now.
Are you serious?
We're still in the race?
Definitely not that.
The party was here without us.
Right, right.
- Hi, Phil.
- Hi. - Hey.
What happened to you today?
- Germany got us.
- Germany got us.
- Got 'em.
- Unfortunately,
-you are the last team to arrive.
And you have been eliminated
from the race.
- Yeah.
- Sucks.
I know you didn't
want it to end like this.
- No. I had an amazing time.
- Yeah, we did.
Got to spend it
with my best friend.
She's known my whole life story.
This was just an amazing journey
for both of us.
- Absolutely.
- Especially at this time in our life.
- This was amazing.
- Yup, it was.
We've known each other
since college over 27 years.
It's just another, you know,
added bonus
to be able to experience
this once-in-a-lifetime
with my best friend.
- Bucket list checked off.
- Yeah.
- Let's go.
- Yeah, goodbye, Germany.
Next time on
The Amazing Race
teams soar over Slovenia.
This is amazing.
Just, the scenery
was just beautiful.
Anna Leigh gets real.
God, I feel like we just suck.
We're stupid. We're stupid.
And another
Express Pass is up for grabs.
We could do it. Rob.
Rob? I think we can beat Rob.
