#AmazingRace begins with Denise and James completing their rap challenge finally and getting their clue even though they are solidly in last place. Justin and Diana scored a standing room only train and are way ahead of the others. The Texas boys have time to kill and check out the Eiffel Tower. Did one of the teams get on the wrong train? Cindy and Rick are talking about both Rotterdam and Amsterdam – two different places. Denise and James are thrilled to find out they are not out of the race.
Phil hands them the clue and says keep going and that the next leg starts right now. They run off. In Rotterdam, Justin and Diana get off the train and go looking for the red boat. They spot a note that says they can’t do anything until 5 am which will give the others a chance to catch up. Josh and Tanner now wonder if their sightseeing screwed them since they are now on the last train. They wonder why they made that stupid move.
Cindy and Rick are on the train looking for the ship and they don’t get off at Rotterdam – they keep going thinking they should be going to Amsterdam. The cheerleaders get off at the correct stop. Some locals tell Cindy and Rick they missed their stop. Those idiots thought Rotterdam and Amsterdam were the same. They get off at the next stop and have to back track. The cheerleaders are thrilled to see they got their second and grab an early spot. Cindy and Rick make it in third and Kelsey and Joey in 4th.
The cheerleaders think they are in Germany. Last to show up are Denise and James. They will all sleep under the stars on the ship. Rick gets bitten on the lip by a mosquito and it’s all swollen. Justin and Diana get their next clue to take a water taxi to a village. Tiffany and Krista leave in 2nd and head out. Justin and Diana are running on one side of the bridge and the cheerleaders on the other. This starts an argument between Justin and Diana.
Cindy and Rick opt for a taxi instead of walking it. Kelsey and Joey leave in 4th and also get into a cab. The cheerleaders make it on the water taxi and ask them to shut the door but the boat pulls away. The cheerleaders are in 1st, Rick and Cindy are in 2nd and Justin and Diana in 3rd still bickering. The Texans are in 5th because they decided to sightsee in Paris. At the village, the #RoadBlock says they have to pick sunflowers. They have to look for an exact replica of Van Gogh’s famous sunflower painting amond the windmills.
Diana head back with one and so does a cheerleader. Diana is told she’s wrong. The vase was off. Rick jogs back for another look. Krista is told she’s wrong too. Logan and Chris are on the way to the water taxi. Joey decides to do the painting challenge. Rick comes back with a painting and Krista takes another look at the original. Rick is also wrong. Denise and James grab a cab to head to the water taxi. Krista gets it wrong on her second try. Diana runs back and is also wrong on her 2nd try.
Joey heads back as does Rick. Joey gets it on the first try. Kelsey and Joey have to use two Fitbit readings to calculate a number and bring that number of tulips to get their next clue. They head out with their tulips as the Texas guys show up. Rick gets it right on his second try. Krista heads back again and gets it right. That puts them in 3rd and Justin is fuming that they’ve lost their advantage. Tanner gets it wrong on his first try.
Logan does it for her team. Kelsey and Joey deliver their tulips and get their next clue to go to the Nolet Distillery where Ketel One vodka is made. Diana runs back with her painting. Cindy and Rick show up in second and head to Nolet also. The cheerleaders are close behind. Chris is yelling at Logan. Diana gets it on try #3 and they head out. Logan flops on her first try. Denise is doing it for the mom and son team. Tanner gets his and that puts them in 5th place.
Denise misses it on her first try as Justin and Diana get their clue – they’re in 4th. Tanner and Josh seem to be struggling with their Fitbit math. The reporters are at the distillery and get their clue for the #Detour. They can captain a ship through Rotterdam’s busy harbor using a training simulator that takes them through a storm and must be done fast. The other is skip – a double Dutch jump rope challenge that looks hard. Kelsey and Joey opt for ship.
Cindy and Rick also go for ship. Josh and Tanner head out in 5th. The cheerleaders decide to jump rope. Denise is on her 3rd try and gets it right. That puts them in 6th. Logan gets it right on her 4th try and they are in 7th place. Justin and Diana decide on the ship. Tanner and Josh decide on ship. Kelsey and Joey do the training exercise. One is a captain and one a navigator. Joey says Kelsey is a horrible driver so he won’t let her drive the boat. Justin and Diana are on the tram and the cheerleaders miss it.
Cindy and Rick are sitting at a bus station frustrated. Kelsey and Joey are in the simulator and start their challenge. Justin and Diana show up to the ship challenge. Kelsey and Joey run out of time and have to go back and do the training again. Kelsey and Joey start the simulation again. Justin and Diana start the training. Kelsey and Joey run out of time the second time. Kelsey and Joey are mad to see Justin and Diana there right behind them. Justin and Diana miss the distress ship and fail.
Cindy and Rick are still at the bus stop and she’s mad that they’re just sitting there. He says her pessimistic attitude isn’t helping. The cheerleaders show up to jump rope. They are shown the hand clapping and jumping routine. Kelsey and Joey are on their third try at the ship simulator. Justin and Diana wait for their next try. Kelsey and Joey fail again. The cheerleaders start their jump rope try. They fail. Justin and Diana are on their simulation for the 2nd try. Cindy and Rick finally get off the tram.
They are at the tower. The cheerleaders pass the jump rope trial and get their clue which puts them in 1st place. They are told to head for The Hague via train. The Peace Palace is the pit stop. Justin and Diana succeed and get their clue which puts them in 2nd place. Kelsey and Joey are not happy. They are on try four while a couple of other teams do the training. Kelsey and Joey finally get it and they are in 3rd place. Josh and Tanner are in the ship simulator and are largely clueless. It’s like they did not pay attention in training because they aren’t looking at the radar screen as they should. Cindy and Rick are there but also fail. They are sent back to training.
Justin and Diana get on the train for The Hague and got ahead of the cheerleaders who can’t make that train. The cheerleaders see that Kelsey and Joey are there. Logan and Chris are in the simulator and fail. Denise and James now have a shot at the simulator. Justin and Diana hop on a tram and head for The Hague. Cindy and Rick fail at the ship. Josh and Tanner fail again. Chris and Logan then fail again too. Justin and Diana show up to take 1st place.
It’s their fourth #1 in the race. Phil asks how many steps they have. Phil says that FitBit will turn their steps into cash and they make more than $31k. Justin says that will pay for their wedding. They are also told they get a massage right now to relax. Kelsey and Joey and Tiffany and Krista are on the same tram and they all take off at a run when it pulls in. Kelsey and Joey are in 2nd officially and Tiffany and Krista take 3rd place. Kelsey and Joey say they’re going to knock Justin and Diana down a peg.
Tanner and Josh finally get their ship challenge done and head out in 4th place. Logan and Chris try again and they also do it to land in 5th place. Denise and James now try again and they make it also which puts them in 6th place. Rick and Cindy are trying again. Tanner and Josh are the train station as are Logan and Chris. Cindy and Rick also clear the ship challenge and leave in last. Denise and James wonder if the other team will catch up to them. Sure enough, Cindy and Rick are there which means a foot race.
Josh and Tanner take an official 4th when they check in at the pit stop. Cindy and Rick get onto another train which has two stops but leaves seven minutes earlier. Cindy and Rick are on a tram while Logan and Chris check in at 5th place. Denise and James think they’re out of it because their train ran late. Cindy and Rick find out they got onto the wrong tram and are headed for the beach. Cindy and Rick get off and run for another tram. Denise and James hit the pit stop and are sure they are eliminated.
Phil says they are not the last team and they dance with joy that they’re in 6th place. Cindy and Rick show up a few minutes later. They are last and are eliminated from the race. That’s it for tonight.
