Dan & Jordan are mugging for the camera a bit too much for my tastes.
God it feels like that describes half the damn cast.
I know. Brandy does it too.

In the back seat, one of the brothers wonders whether Champagne is wine mixed with club soda.

Jordeff vow to catch up, apparently with no idea they're hours behind. She's still driving, so it's unlikely that they'll get anywhere soon.

Steve/Allie are starting to have stress.

Teams begin to arrive at LeClerc Briant.  Cops / Brothers: Who's ready to cave in?

Phil: Teams party like it's 1799.  Rappell a hundred feet down into a wine cave.  Look for a specially marked bottle.  Use a sabre to slice off the cork.  Champagne will shoot out, along with their next clue.

Of all the geographically-challenged teams...it had to be the cowboys...
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

In 3rd, Allie: It requires upper body.  Translation: Steve volunteers or is volunteered to rapel.  

Finally Jet/Cord arrive in Chalons.  Asking directions, they're given bad news: IT'S the WRONG TOWN.  



COMMERCIAL.

Jet & Cord finally make it to the champagne place. They realize they're in 5th by looking at the cut champagne bottles.

Jet/Cord discover they're off about 60 km.

Brothers get a quick lead when Jordan finds a marked bottle.  Ker - flip!  It's open.  CLUE: Taittinger.

Phil: They must find out that Taittinger is a winery in a nearby village, and go there.

Brent/Caite can't figure out whether Joan of Arc is a guy, a girl ...  They don't seem to have the right statue.

Steve joins Louie down in the batcave.  Here comes Louie, back with a bottle.  Ker-flip!  It's open and they finally get the clue.  "Taittinger.  La Marquette."

Brent/Caite don't hear any saw music, so they'll ask directions for something.  But she doesn't know what she wants to ask directions for.  She tells Brent he has an attitude!    They get back in their car, and she even bitches at him about the position of his car seat!

Steve finds a bottle and pops the cork in 3rd. Off they go with the Taittinger clue.

Carol/Brandy are just arriving at the RB in 4th.  Brandy bitches about Steve.  Is there anyone they like?  Carol suggests Brandy might be in a "pisass mood."  Umm, yeah, always.

Dan/Jordan ask directions.  So do Louie/Michael.  The winery is in Pierry. The winery is in Reims.  Wait a minute ... somebody's getting crap directions!

OMG with the departure times given for this week and with the departure times from last week.  I was able to figure out how long it took teams to perform last week's leg.  Now obviously Joe & Heidi took the longest, guess who was next in being the slowest team to complete the days challenge?

A tie between Brent & Caite (no surprise as they had to backtrack 8 miles, plus walking time) & Louie & Michael.

Can you believe that crap.  It took them 10 hours 12 minutes.

The fastest team was.....Dan & Jordan, followed by Jet & Cord, Carol & Brandy then Steve & Allie, Jordan & Jeff.

Louie & Michael performed the days tasks a whole minute slower then Jordan & Jeff.  WTF.  And that counts as a solid win for them.

Brandy finally finds a bottle.  They leave in 4th with the Taittinger clue.

Steve/Allie ask a painter for directions.  He sends them back where they just came from.   

Do the French give lousy directions, or what??

Jet/Cord finally arrive at the wine cave. They count 4 teams ahead of them.  Good at math, apparently.

In last, Jordeff reach the Musical Saw lady and get the Champagne Cork clue. 

Woman tells Jet/Cord that Taittinger is in Reims.  The cops are going to Pierry.  Dan/Jordan are going to Reims, too.

But the Cops are correct! 
Louie/Michael, DETOUR.
Phil: Tower, or Terra?  Tower, use 680 glasses to build a 15-level tower with exactly 1 glass on top.  No broken glasses, must fill with champagne.
Terra: Find a cluster of grape marked in race colors, in a vineyard.

Cops choose the needle-in-haystack task.

Dan/Jordan arrive at Taittinger, Reims office, where they have the business HQ.  They get directions back to the castle in the middle of nowhere.

Brent goes down into the cave, retrieves the bottle, opens it. Caite complains that they didn't get to drink any champagne.

Cops argue about colors of grape clusters in a field full of grapes.

Jordeff arrive at the RB. She doesn't want to be stuck in a dark place, so he reluctantly agrees to rapel down into the cave.
Jord conf: We havcen't seen any teams, but somebody could get lost or something.

Steve, driving, had a boo-boo and tears off the front end of the Benz.  Plus, they found the wrong Taittinger.  The part of the airdam is dragging against the road and the wheel.  Steve gets out; yeah, it IS dragging against the wheel.  He comes up with a plan to dislodge the broken part ...

Jordeff leave the RB in last, after trying some of the million year old champagne.
Jeff: It's good!

Steve kicks at the airdam.  It just fragments into more shards, all pointing every-which-away under the wheel well. They debate whether to request a new car.

So, who goes home, the invisible Father & Daughter with a wrecked car or the recycled celebrealities?

Isn't it great that the office of tourism has managed to send half of the teams to the wrong city.

Steve fixes the car with duct tape, but scrapes his knuckles.

And Jeff & Jordan are given more bad directions from the tourist agency. Goodness.
