Here we go; James & Abba don’t have their passports and need to produce them in order to check in even though they have arrived at the pit stop before some of the other teams.

Abie & Ryan are still sticking waiting with Josh & Brent at the pool, they used all their attempts and receive and penalty because they did not finish. Both teams head to the tree of keys; Josh & Brent finish quickly, but Abbie has a hard time.

James & Abba contacted the US Embassy to get new passports, at this point there is nothing else they can do.

At the Pit Stop, Abbie & Ryan are team number four and Josh & Brent are team number five. The bad news is that Josh & Brent have a four hour penalty that they will have to incur at the beginning at the next leg of the race.

James & Abba have good news, this is non-elimination race and they can continue in the race which means they will not only have to find their passports, but they will also have to complete a Speed Bump in the next leg.

Trey & Lexi were the first team to arrive at the pit stop in the last leg, therefore they are the first team to leave in this leg. The clue now has the teams heading to the Agricultural Academy large chemistry auditorium number one to find their next clue. Jaymes & James are behind Trey & Lexi who are now lost. Jaymes & James are the first team to arrive but they must wait till 8 to have access.

It’s 8, Jaymes & James, Trey & Lexi gain entrance to the Agricultural Academy and receive their Road Block “who is in the zone”. Russia has nine different time zones, teams have to calculate the time zone in five different cities.

Natalie & Nadiya have decided to use their Express Pass for this leg. James & James, Trey & Lexi have finished the Road Block and moved on to the Detour where they must choose “movers” that require teams to learn and perform a Russian soldier dance or “shakers” where teams have to identify seven famous Russian lookalike leaders at a cocktail party. Both teams choose to dance and Jaymes & James have a rough time because of a injured ankle, but they manage to finish along Trey & Lexi and both teams now have to head to Sokolniki Park and the pit stop for this leg of the race.

Natalie & Nadiya have arrived at the Detour, the girls get on their uniforms but Natalie splits her pants and needs to change before they can learn the dance. Meanwhile, Abbie & Ryan are heading to the Agricultural Academy.

Jaymes & James are the first team to arrive at the Pit Stop and win a trip for two to Costa Rica. Trey & Leixi are team number two while Josh & Brent, James & Abba have yet to even begin the this leg. Natalie & Nadiya are the third team to arrive at the Pit Sop and Josh & Brent have finally left. James & Abba have borrowed someone’s cell phone and calling the embassy to get emergency passports.

Ryan is having a hard time trying to figure out the time zones, he has tried over 20 times and swears there is something wrong with the information he is given because he just can’t get it.

James & Abba are at the Moscow police station, they have been talking to many people and are still trying to get information. Josh & Brent are at the Roadblock and have to figure out the time zones, Ryan finally finished and he and Abbie are on to the Detour.

Abbie & Ryan finish the Detour quickly and arrive at the Pit Stop in fourth place. Josh & Brent finish the Detour and arrive at the Pit Stop in fifth place. James & Abba are crushed that they will not be continuing on in the race as they are still without their passports and have arrived at the Pit Stop. Jeff notifies the two that they have been eliminated from the race.

The end!
