Tonight’s episode of Amazing Race kicks off in Rome, Italy where the 8th leg of the race is kicking off. Brendon and Rachel are the first team to depart and are headed to Civita Di Bagnoregio. Caroline and Jennifer depart second and Dave and Connor depart third. Caroline and Jennifer are working with the father and son team, and they get directions to Civita Di Bagnoregio and share them with the other team. Jet and Cord depart fourth, and they still have an Express Pass to use. Leo and Jamal and Flight Time and Big Easy depart fifth and sixth.

Brendon and Rachel arrive at Civita first and find the detour clue. They have to choose between donkey run, which is a race riding donkeys. Or, donkey build, which requires the teams to build a wooden donkey in a workshop. Brendon and Rachel and Dave and Connor decide to do the donkey race.

Brendon and Rachel have some serious problems when they both fall off their donkeys and they run away. They are able to complete the race on their second attempt and receive a clue telling them to Hotelia de Pompei.

Caroline and Jennifer still haven’t arrived at Civita, they had the same directions as Dave and Connor. Dave and Connor got off on an exit, and the girls missed it. They are completely lost. They aren’t the only ones though, Flight Time and Big Easy are also lost.

Brendon and Rachel arrive at the next clue, and it is a Double U-Turn. Rachel is hesitant, but they decide to U-Turn Dave and Connor, who are still struggling to complete the donkey races. Jet and Cord arrive at the donkey making detour, and decide to use their Express Pass and skip the competition.

Dave and Connor and Jet and Cord arrive at the U-Turn at the same time. Dave and Connor are not happy to see that they got U-Turned. Dave and Connor decide to U-Turn Leo and Jamal. Dave and Connor feel guilty about U-Turning Leo and Jamal so they work together on the donkey building detour.

Brendon and Rachel arrive at the chapel and the next Roadblock. The teams are required to copy a page of ordinate writing from an ancient manuscript perfectly, before they can move on to the next clue. Jet and Cord arrive at the Chapel right after Rachel begins the task.

Dave and Connor and Jennifer and Caroline both complete the donkey detours and head to the chapel. Leo and Jamal finish soon after, as they are completing the donkey detours Flight Time and Big Easy finally arrive at the donkey races, and they are in last place. The Harlem Globetrotters have difficulty racing the donkeys so they change their minds and head to the donkey building detour.

Dave and Connor and Caroline and Jennifer arrive at the Chapel and see Brendon waiting outside. Dave and Connor let Brendon know that they didn’t appreciate being U-Turned. Brendon keeps apologizing though.

Brendon and Rachel complete the calligraphy roadblock and receive their clue to head to the next pit-stop. Flight Time and Big Easy finally complete the donkey detour and head to the chapel. Meanwhile at the Chapel Jet and Cord complete their roadblock and head to the pit-stop.

Brendon and Rachel arrive at the pit-stop and finish this leg of the race in 1st place (for the second week in a row). Jet and Cord arrive at the pit-stop in 2nd place. Leo and Jamal arrive in 3rd place. Dave and Connor arrive in 4th place and Caroline and Jennifer arrive in 5th place. Flight Time and Big Easy are the last team to arrive and are eliminated from Amazing Race.
