Amazing Race March 7

Jet and Cord are the first to depart at 10:57pm.  Make your way to Hamburg, Germany (hey, we have an office there!).  Teams must race on foot to find a certain street to search for their next clue.  They find a travel agency and get tickets for 11:10am so they figure they will all be on the same flight.

Aww, it’s so sweet.  Turns out Dan doesn’t like traveling but Jordan told him it would mean the world to him if they ran this race together so Dan did it for him.  Turns out the teams get various connections.  Jet and Cord and the cops arrive first.  Carol and Brandy and Dan and Jordan get in next.  They are racing to make the train to Hamburg but can’t find their track and miss the train.  Either Carol or Brandy starts crying.  I haven’t figured out which one is which yet.  So Joe and Heidi, Brent and Caite and Jeff and Jordan catch up to them.

Jet and Cord arrive at the clue box first and it turns out to be an intersection.  This means they have to join forces with another team to complete the task.  They call over the cops so they have a team to partner with.

Road Block

They must make their way by train to Hamburg Harbor and perform 150 foot bungee jump together.  Joe and Heidi pair up with Steve and Allie.  They meet a guy who shows them the way.  Dan and Jordan and Carol and randy join up.  Jordan and Jeff and Brent and Caite team up.  Jordan and Caite do the task.  Turns out they get on the wrong train.

LOL. The cowboy didn’t want to remove his hat for the jump.  Amazingly it does stay on.  Did he glue it to his head?  Joe and Allie get there next.  Dan and Brandy are next.   Ummm, Brandy watches Joe and Allie and says oh my god it’s upside down.  Yes, it is a bungee jump!  The look on Brandy’s face made me worry she was going to have a heart attack as they fell.  Caite and Jordan show up in last place.

Find the Kaiser Wilhem statue to get their next clue.  They are no longer intersected.  The cops take a taxi and the cowboys take the metro.


The cops show up first.

Soccer or Sauerkraut

Soccer-teams makes their way to a stadium and from the penalty mark have to hit 5 targets.

Sauerkraut- they have to eat a plate full of sauerkraut while a band plays the sauerkraut polka.  They must finish before the song finishes.  If they don’t then they have to start all over.

The cops arrive first and choose sauerkraut.  Ugh, I’ve never tried sauerkraut but not sure I could eat that plateful.  Michael and Louie have no problem.

Teams now have to go to Haifisch Bar and finish a boot of beer.  Hmmm, another problem since I don’t drink beer.

Jet and Cord, Joe and Heidi and Steve and Allie all show up at the detour at the same time.  They all choose soccer.  Ugh, someone tells Jeff and Jordan and Caite and Brent to take the train instead of a cab so guess they are taking the slow way.

At the soccer I don’t know if I could even kick that far.  Joe is saying how his knee is bothering him so he’s having a rough time.  Steve and Allie already hit two of the targets.  Steve is ripping it up and finishes with no problem.  Joe and Heidi can’t hit any target so they switch tasks.  They leave as the cowboys arrive.  I’m impressed by the cowboys.  They are doing pretty well.  They finish third.

Caite and Brent do soccer.  Jeff and Jordan do the sauerkraut.  Jeff and Jordan are afraid their taxi is lost.    Man, don’t get eliminated!  Joe and Heidi arrive at the sauerkraut.  They down it!  Brandy and Carol arrive next.  Brandy is shoveling it in but Carol is taking these small, dainty bites but they finish.

Dan and Jordan arrive at the soccer and finish without a problem.

Jordan and Jeff finally find the sauerkraut place. Man, they need to eat faster.  They are taking small bites and drinking water.  I have my doubts if they will finish.  Caite and Brent get to the soccer.  Turns out Caite’s played soccer since she was 5 and does well.  Jeff and Jordan give up on the sauerkraut and switched to soccer.    Uh oh!  Caite is in pain every time she kicks.  Still she gets 3 of the 5 shots.  Dang it!  Jeff and Jordan are going to be eliminated.

Haifisch Bar

Louie downs most of the beer.  Next they have to go to Beatles-Platz and find a bar that is the pit stop of this leg of the race.  Steve is so excited to drink the beer.  He chugs the whole thing himself.  Allie does the last sip.  Turns out the cowboys haven’t drank before.  Heidi is doing pretty well but Joe is struggling.  He can’t even read the clue when they get it and makes Heidi read it out loud.  The cowboys are still working on the beer when Carol and Brandy show up.  When they finish Jet says he never, ever wants another beer in his life.  Dan and Jordan seem to do pretty well.  Brent has to go outside and throw up while drinking.  Man if that counts I would down the beer and throw it up afterwards.  Jeff downs the beer.

Pit Stop

Michael and Louie are team #1!  They win a discover gift card worth $5000 each.  I swear Louie is drunk from the beer.

Steve and Allie are team #2.  Joe and Heidi are team #3.  Jet and Cord are team #4.  Carol and Brandy are team #5.  Dan and Jordan are team #6 and Jordan seems drunk as well.  Caite and Brent are team #7.  Jeff and Jordan are the last team to arrive.  Yes!  It’s a non-elimination leg.  They get a speed bump which I think teams have a hard time surviving but there is still hope!
