It’s time for #AmazingRace. The contestants are still in Italy. There are six teams left and one couple will go home on tonight’s episode. The teams start out from the villa they last checked into. Misti and Jim leave at 6:37 am to head to Malta. They have to carry a heavy tray of drinks up to the knights of Malta to get their next clue. Kym and Alli leave five minutes behind them.
Amy and Maya are third and Amy’s leg is hurting. Brooke and Robbie are fourth followed by Adam and Bethany. They have an express pass they can still use. Tim and Te Jay are last and still face an obstacle for coming in last place. They all get to the ferry at the same time. Kym and Alli are being stand offish from the other teams. The girls reject their company clearly.
Robbie says he wants a code name and he’s Viper. The Dentists choose molar and cuspid and the scientists choose cookies and crème. They are having fun. The ferry stops and all the teams take off at a run. They call for a taxi and all hope in and try to get their drivers to go fast. Adam and Bethany are in first as of now. They arrive at the Bridge Bar and are showed how to carry the heavy trays.
#TheWrestlers are close behind followed by #TheCyclists. Bethany and Adam head up the stairs – there are a LOT of stairs. Jim is the first to drop a tray and has to clean it up. Maya drops hers too. Adam and Bethany are cruising along followed by the Wrestlers, Tim and Te Jay. Adam encourages Bethany and they see the upper garden and look for the knights.
Bethany drops her stuff right at the table. She apologizes and they have to clean it. Brooke is struggling as they near the top. Bethany jogs back down past them. Robbie encourages Brooke and tells her they are almost there. Jim is carefully balancing his stuff as Adam and Bethany get back. The scientists are still just starting out as well. Kym tries to get Alli to go faster.
Tim and Te Jay seem to be a little lost. Adam and Bethany clean up the mess upstairs and now have to run back down to reload. Te Jay breaks his. Brooke and Robbie and Kym and Alli get their clue and have to now head to a boat. Amy loses her stuff right at the table. Kym and Alli try to get their driver to cancel the call for The Wrestlers’ taxi. Amy and Maya break theirs again.
Jim and Misti deliver theirs successfully putting them in 3rd place. Adam and Bethany drop theirs off and are in 4th. Brooke and Robbie are still not finding a taxi. Tim and Te Jay take 5th and quickly score a taxi. Adam and Bethany are still looking for a cab. Amy and Maya are on their fifth try and drop again. Misti and Jim score a cab and are on their way.
Looks like they got Brooke and Robbie’s cab. Adam and Bethany get a taxi too. The Wrestlers are frustrated and take off at a run looking for a cab. Brooke and Robbie finally get a taxi but they’ve lost their lead. #TheCyclists are first to get the next clue and there are three with an earlier time and three with a later time. Amy and Maya are starting over again. #TheDentists get there second and also get the early time.
Amy and Maya finally complete the first challenge. They have to all crash there on the hard concrete to wait for morning. The boats pull up and they get their #RoadBlock. One has to rappel 20 stories off a cliff into a grotto to meet up with their partner. The teams divvy up and go to the top. Alli is rappelling for the cyclists and Misti for the dentists. Misti is flying down it going fast while Jim cheers her on.
Alli is catching up but Tim is terrified as Te Jay tells him to go faster. Misti is first down followed by Alli and Tim. They now have to search in the grotto for their next clue. The rappelers now swim to the grotto to find it. Alli gets there first and Tim and Misti get there the same time. The cyclists take 1s and now they have to head to a church to search for their next clue.
Misti and Jim are in second and the #CollegeSweethearts in third. Bethany is kicking butt on the rappelers. Adam says he’s super proud of her. Amy is lagging behind Robbie and Bethany. The first three teams are headed to the church and Tim and Te Jay know they still have to face the speed bump. Bethany is first down and swimming for the clue.
Bethany nabs the clue and is back fast. Brooke says Bethany is like the Terminator because she has one arm and destroys every challenge. Adam and Bethany move into 4th. Amy is able to pass up Robbie and they move into 5th pushing the wrestlers into last place headed into the next challenge. The teams have to choose flag or shine with no explanation to help make a choice.
The cyclists choose flag. Flag makes you run up a greased pole to grab a flag. They each have to grab one to get the next clue. Alli heads up the greased pole first. She loses her balance and leaps, grabbing a flag as she goes down. Kym is up next and falls off halfway up. Locals watch and laugh at them. Kym makes it almost all the way up and then falls.
Tim and Te Jay skipped the clue stage and then go back and find their Speed Bump. They have to paint the Maltese Cross on two shields. Misti and Jim are doing the flag challenge next. Jim and Misti realize they missed something too. They never got to the clue box, they just came down when they saw Kym and Alli – uh-oh – that can cause them big problems if they don’t backtrack ASAP.
Jim and Misti leave but they are glad they know they don’t want to choose that detour. They head off. Kym and Alli are struggling with the greased pole. They discuss switching to the other detour and head off. Adam and Bethany and TheDentists are all lost looking for the clue box. They finally find it. Adam and Bethany head to flag. The dentists head to shine.
Tim and Te Jay are working on painting their shields. Brooke and Robbie are in 5th place and also choose shine. For shine, they have to polish dirty armor. They each wear armor while the other shines. First, they have to head up a ladder to grab the stuff. Adam and Bethany use their Express Pass to skip the greasy pole challenge and get the clue to head to the pit stop.
They go to find a taxi. Tim and Te Jay get the nod on their shields and take off to try the flag detour. The scientists decide to do the flag as well. Tim quickly falls off. Amy’s knee is hurting and she can’t run. She tells Maya to go first. Amy says she can’t run fast enough to get onto the pole. Maya is very frustrated. She says they need to switch.
Misti and Jim are cleaning the armor and compare it to polishing teeth. Robbie and Brooke discuss switching the detour but aren’t sure. Amy and Maya show up to shine. Tim and Te Jay are the only ones at the flag challenge. Te Jay tells Tim he has to stop hesitating. Bethany and Adam show up to take their first place at the pit stop in Malta.
Phil tells them they each won $10,000 for this leg. Bethany is thrilled. The Dentists did a great job and their armor is looking food. Robbie tells Brooke to quit being negative and he asks if she wants to switch. They quit shine and head over to flag. Misti and Jim get approval and their clue. Thy are in 2nd as they head for the pit stop.
Tim is whining about the flag and says he can’t. Te Jay calls him a baby. The Wrestlers show up and Robbie tells her he doesn’t think he can do it. Te Jay thinks they are likely tied for last place. Tim falls in again. Brooke asks where they come up with these sports. The onlookers laugh and laugh. Brooke says she broke her butt and calls it her money maker. Tim and Te Jay are in an argument.
Robbie takes a hard fall and says he’s over it. Brooke is mad that he wants to quit. They head back over to shine and are very frustrated. Their only hope is that Tim can’t get the flag. The Cyclists are told to keep polishing and are sent back. Amy and Maya are also told to go back and do better. Kym and Alli get the thumbs up and move into 3rd place.
Misti and Jim show up to the check point and are officially in 2nd place for this leg. Amy and Maya get thumbs up on their armor and take 4th place. Robbie and Brooke polish and Brooke says this part of the Amazing Race is not amazing. Tim tells Te Jay to quit glaring at him so he can try it. The crowd is clapping their hands to cheer them on.
Tim is worn out and frustrated. They decide to switch to shine. Kym and Alli take their 3rd place as they show up to the check point. The Wrestlers are told to keep polishing. Tim and Te Jay are just getting started. Amy and Maya show up and are thrilled to hear they took 4th. Maya runs around like a lunatic and does a full lap on the roof. Phil is impressed.
Tim and Te Jay fuss as they polish. Brooke and Robbie finally get a thumbs and move into 5th. Tim and Te Jay know they are in last place. Brooke and Robbie are upset because the only taxi they see has Tim and Te Jay’s bags in it. They go looking for one. Tim and Te Jay are polishing their hearts out as Brooke and Robbie head into a bar to ask them to call a taxi for them.
Tim and Te Jay get their polishing approved. Robbie and Brooke grab a cab. Tim and Te Jay climb into their cab and head off. It’s hard to tell how close the times are. Brooke and Robbie show up to the check point and find out they’re in 5th. Phil asks Robbie to make his pecs jump and they all laugh. Tim and Te Jay show up in last place and Phil tells them they are the last time and are out of the race. Tim and Te Jay say they went further than they expected to. Te Jay is hoping this will get his mom to accept them as boyfriends. That’s it!
