Welcome back to our favorite raaaace around the world. Previously: no one likes Ashton, Mom&Dad came in 1st, and last place Team Beard is fighting, but it’s a continued leg so they’re still racing.
Teams are leaving the gorgeousness that is Norway for Milan, Italy. They book their own flights which would have been cool if there were multiple options, instead of everyone being on the same flight. In taxis heading to the Piazza Fontana, teams talk about how they plan to u-turn MissMath and burn the 2nd u-turn to ensure it can’t be used it on someone else (that’s way harsh, Tai). Beard puts aside their differences and hug it out.
Who’s hungry for their next clue? Tara and Mike are, and will perform the Roadblock: Word on the Street for their teams. While enjoying a a 2-course meal and some vino on a dining tram, they will search for 3 words with the race colors of red and yellow as the tram drives through Milan at night. Tara speaks a little Italian (she was stationed there and it’s where she met her hubby) and her and Mike decide to work together, which actually seems smart for a challenge where 2 eyes are better than 1. Plus it’s early enough in the leg to beat each other if needed.
Tara and Mike are the only ones on their tram, they must have had fast cab drivers. Floyd, Scott, Vanck and Redmond get on the next tram, but not Logan because
he is not on this show only 4 teams are allowed on at a time. He will have to wait for Tara and Mike’s tram to make its circuit. The 4 guys are not helping each other out, and no one sees the 3rd sign so all 4 have to redo the challenge, complete with eating and drinking.
I’d kick ass at the drinking and eating part
Logan had the correct 3 words plus an extra, incorrect word, which was the one he opted to say. Apparently you can’t guess again because he had to go back on the tram. Scott is checking out the local eye candy and making faces such as this:
Mom&Dad and Beard are done and headed to stunning Lake Como. Everyone will be on the same steamboat, trekking across the lake overnight, but their departure times tomorrow will be determined by the time they arrived at the boat, staggered in 5 minute increments. Mom&Dad will leave at 7:00 AM, Beard at 7:05 AM, and so on, with last team LoLo (who?) departing at 7:30 AM. It’s like a bunch-up but the early teams get a slight advantage, which if fair. Everyone gets some rare down time with each other as they eat, drink and be merry.
Italian coastal scenery AND George Clooney? Yes, please.
The double u-turn is at the next clue. Mom&Dad sent SethOlive home last time they u-turned so decide not to use it this leg (um, that’s what is supposed to happen). Detour: Make a Mold or Grab a Hold.
Castello di Vezio is a castle that is famous for being haunted. There are ghosts all over the property and in the mold detour teams will have to make one. A team member will be covered with a wire cage while their partner draped them in rags dipped in plaster-of-paris. Mom&Dad, LoLo (who?) and MissMath do this one.
Italy is mostly mountainous and the hold detour requires teams to climb the side of a mountain for next clue. One will climb while the other controls the harness from the ground. Beard can’t find the dock and fall behind a few spots. Becca is a climbing instructor so she shows Floyd some moves on their boat ride to the mountain. Matt has climbing experience so is up and down lickety split. Brooke is freaking out on the climb up, thinking Scott doesn’t have her. She’s her usual screechy self. She. Is. The. Worst.
Scccooooooottttt! I don’t think you have me. Scccooooooottttt! I suck and can’t grab the clue.
Beard u-turned MissMath, and Goofballs u-turned Beard (to render that u-turn useless) so MissMath will have to do both detours, and know they are screwed. London (who?) is the artist in the group so naturally she the molder. I think she is annoying, but it is hard to tell because they really get no screen time.
It’s a boatrace for Tripod and Goofballs, who know they’re in 1st place (how did they know they beat Mom&Dad?) heading to the Pit Stop: Lake Como. They’re in sleek racing boats, the “Ferraris of the Sea”, and know it’s going to end in a 7-legged (heh) footrace to the mat. Tripod’s boat takes a little bit longer to pull up to the dock, so the Goofballs come in first, winning a trip to Argentina. The other teams get to the mat close together, except for MissMath, who are in last and have been Philiminated.
Brooke is happy with herself for getting rid of a team she wouldn’t want to have dinner with.
I really hope she gets a reality check when she watches herself on TV.
Vanck and Ashton are proud at how far they came, considering they were so mismatched. So, that’s it. Kind of a boring leg with no real action. Didn’t it seem as though the climbing task was much shorter than the ghost molding? Are you ready for Brooke to be off your TV soon, like I am? Sound off in the comments below and thanks for reading.
