Gaydad prays for divine intervention, kind-of, in a roundabout passive-aggressive way.
And there goes the wind. Down to a tolerable level!
The judge lets Mel take off.
Mel conf: It was a MIRACLE!
Mike: It was a freakin' miracle straight from God!
At the bottom, Tammy/Vic, CLUE: Drive yourselves to Shonau au Konigsee.
Phil: 25 miles to the next clue.
Mel takes off.
Marggie/Luke, 2nd, CLUE to Shonau au Konigsee. Amanda/Kris 3rd.
They both seek directions. Margie/Luke on a map; Amanda/Kris by locals.
Brad/Victoria leave in 4th.
As he descends, Mel takes in "the treat of a lifetime. The Alps all in fall colors, and green valleys sweeping in every direction."
Uh-oh ... Linda is lost, taking the wrong turn when the arrow points the other way. Oops!
The teams behind her follow the arrow at the fork in the road. Linda, forked the wrong way.
Mel: They're all running (except me).
Steve: I can see us going back to last place real quick.
Tammy/Vic, CLUE: DETOUR.
Phil: Success depends on precision. Balancing dolly or Austrian folly.
Dolly: Ride Segway along a 2 mile course with obstacles. Must learn controls quickly.
Folly: Go into a party tent, throwing pies at the target, your partner's face. Pie with cherry filling gets the next CLUE.
