WE have two episodes left of this season of The Amazing Race. Teams are in Amsterdam which Europeans call it the Venice of the north due to its numerous canals. Racers travel to Barcelona, Spain for this leg. Nadiya and Natalie book a 6 o'clock flight to Spain. This is just minutes before the next team, Jaymes and James, leave the pit stop. The Chippendale's get on a 7:20 flight while the Texans aboard a 7:55 flight.
When the twins arrive, they find out that the ferry to Mallorca opens at 10. The girls spot the Chippendale's and give them a big hug. The group find Trey and Lexi and run excitedly for the power 6 reunion. They all put their hands in and yell "Final 3!"
The group have time to kill in Barcelona so they go to the beach and enjoy themselves. The gang swims, plays in the sand and laugh for hours.
While walking back to the port, they discover the Farmers. The group rushes to greet them as they know their plan of the Double U-Turn work. Abbie and Ryan are no longer in the competition. Josh and Brent are also happy because they finally caught up with the pack.
The ferry takes the team to Mallorca and they have to find their clue among a horror movie setting. Picture this, dozens of men wearing devilish masks prancing around while twirling fire. Are you scared yet? There are torch blowers and men that manipulate flames that make it rain sparks.
After some time, the teams find a man who has their clue. They must proceed to the Centre de Alto Rendimento. The alliance decides to follow one another. The twins take the rear but it is not a good move for them. Nadiya can't drive stick. They say that she was suppose to learn how to drive it but she only took one class prior the race.
Teams test their tennis skills on Raphael Nadal's tennis court in which he grew up playing on. One person must return 20 balls back on the court to advance. Trey plays tennis and he completed this task in no time.
Teams must drive to the Coves de Campanet and follow the music to their clue.
Chips and Texans decide to work together to find the music in the cave. There it is! 2 men playing the guitar gives them the clue.
Spin it or Bull it
In spin it, teams repair a 400 year old windmill. They have to attach 2 steel blades.
In bull it, teams travel to a 1000 year old area to play the role of a bull. They have 2 minutes to bump the capes of 8 matadors and then hit the bulls-eye.
The pair of teams decide to go for the bull. While driving, James and Jaymes went the wrong way and found themselves at the windmill. They decide to just complete the task.
At the Plaza del Toros, the Texans put on their bull costume, Lexi in front and Trey in the back. Trey can see to direct Lexi in which way she has to travel. The team does well on their first attempt right until Lexi has to hit the bulls-eye. She tramples over the target without hitting the center. This accident caused her to slice her finger. Lexi is in tears.
The Pit Stop is next; teams travel to Castell de Bellver where Phil awaits.
It is a race to see who will come in first. The winners of this leg are... the Texans! The team won a trip to the Rivera Maya.
It is down to the wire between Sri Lanka and Josh and Brent. The farmers edge out the girls in Spin it and race to the pit stop. The girls are not upset at their lost. They take full responsibility without any bickering. Phil asked them at the pit stop what happened. They responded with they couldn't drive, couldn't get directions, and couldn't screw in bolts. Phil gave them good news that this is a non-elimination leg.
Next week is the season finale of The Amazing Race. Tell me which teams you want to see win a million dollars. Can Sri Lanka overcome their speed bump? Are the farmers going to be the 4th place team? Can the power 6 alliance make it to the final 3? all of these questions will be answered next week on CBS.
