Here we go, Tyler and Nathan will depart at 3:15 PM (Feels like 24 hour stop)

Fly to Amsterdam, Holland and make their way to a food stall, where they must eat two apple-bol donuts to get the next clue.

Matt and Tom depart 3:34 PM

Jeff and Luke depart 3:46 PM. Both comment on their newfound relationship

First flight departs 7:05 PM & arrives 9:25 AM

The first 3 teams will get it, and are trying to keep the information hidden

Dave and Kelly depart 4:56 PM

Dave: "We're here for the travel, the excitement. But we're here for the money"

Kelly: "I hope the Roadblock's not in the red light district"

Dave: "If it is, I'll take one for the team."

A/M departed 5:36
S/R departed 5:45
C/A departed 5:46

All en route to airport

Renee: "We've gotta be more ruthless now"

Anastasia wonders what Apple-bol is, Chris is frustrated because he feels like she always makes it his fault.

Dave and Kelly sneak onto the first flight. The back 3 teams are running for it and also make it on at the last minute.

All seven teams on the same flight to Amsterdam.

Nathan and Tyler cut in line at the taxi, Sisters get the first one though.

The temperature went from 30 degrees to 6 degrees in the locations.

Dave and Kelly are taking the train, they think they'll take 20 minutes total, and the taxis will be a 30 minute drive.

Jeff and Luke are also on the train, and want to take it slowly and gather all information before moving.

The train turns out to be faster, Dave and Kelly first to the donuts, Jeff and Luke right behind.

Kelly thinks she's going to be sweet, but the donuts are tasty.

Teams immediately travel on a train to Prague.

ONLY THE FIRST FOUR TEAMS GET SLEEPER CABINS the remaining teams will have to spend the 15 hour journey in seats.

Sisters and farmers at donuts, Matt didn't have time to enjoy them, Mel had them getting caught in their throat.

Matt and Tom out 3rd, Chris and Ana arriving.

Anastasia: "I'm gonna vomit if they vomit."

Chris and Ana pass the sisters, the girls are still struggling, but gone by the time the boy models and the girl models arrive.

Tyler and Nathan squabble over eating the donuts, Tyler accuses Nathan of eating like a girl.

Ironically, the girls beat them.

The first four celebrate their sleeper cabins, Alana and Mel comment that it sucks

Train goes through Berlin, that counts as the Germany visit.

Sam and Renae haven't slept, Chris says its the best sleep he's had in a long time, better than any hotel.

Teams are in Prague, models and other models get first two cabs. Alana and Mel can't find a cab.

Tyler want to put 110% in and stay consistent.

Boy models are first to the cluebox and walk straight by it, despite the fact that they have parked less than a meter away (Fran and Barry anyone?) Incredibly, they cross the street and look around another building for it.

Other teams are following them and they are now going upstairs.

Matt: "It's called the sheep effect, one goes so all the others follow"

Ad break.

And we're back. Dave and Kelly "Destroyed all their displays" trying to find the clues. Kelly wants to have a look around outside and Dave says no.

Alana and Mel are out the tower and go straight to the clue.

Teams must now head to the Charles Bridge and find the "holey" statue to find the hidden clue (TAR Asia recall)

Chris and Ana park outside next, straight to the box.

The five inside teams all spot the cluebox finally and run outside to grab it.

Alana and Mel at the bridge, get told by a local it's in the middle even though there's loads of statues.

All teams are showing up and walking on the bridge together. Chris and Ana and Alana and Mel have figured it out, Nathan and Tyler follow them to the clue.

DETOUR: Chivalry or Delivary

Chivalry- Teams must dress in Knights armor and search the old town square to get a key from the keymaster. They must then find the damsel in distress and trade the key for the next clue.

Delivery- Carry a young princess to the old town square.

The three teams all pick delivery.

S/R, J/L & M/T are all overthinking it, going to where a priest is pointing. Jeff claims that in the old testiment holy was spelled holey.

Dave and Kelly ask a guard who outright tells them that teams picked up their clue from the first statue on the left. Dave sticks his head in, sees nothing. Kelly sticks her hand it, feels nothing.

And back. Dave sticks his head in again and climbs in to find it.

Kelly: "See I told ya I had my spelling right"

The bikers pick Chivalry on the basis that "she might be a big fat slobbo, I can't carry that."

Dave and Kelly pass the blondes and refuse to tell them where it is, as they pass Dave comments "This sucks don't it?"

Blondes ask a guard why the holy statue is pointing this way, guard has no clue, looks straight down the barrel of the camera and shrugs.

Alana and Mel realise just how heavy a young girl in a wooden lifty thing is. Anastasia is struggling as well. Tyler and Nathan have very little trouble and breeze past. Chris and Ana have found a rhythym. Nathan's arms are cramping so the surfers change ends

Chris is asking a local, he estimates half an hour while carrying it.

An american tourist tells the remaining three teams exactly which statue to check.

Alana and Mel's princess shoots a worried look to the camera. Alana and Mel are only getting a few steps at a time.

Sam and Renae go the old standby and ask a cop, but he doesn't know the square. Renae is frustrated by the language barrier, and a cabbie tells them he won't take them for free.

Matt and Tom and Dave and Kelly are doing the knits, Kelly is "walking like she just gave birth to something large"

The bikers are now asking everybody if they have the key to a damsels heart, Kelly asks a blind man.

A local doesn't understand Matt and Tom, but to be fair, their accent is very thick.

Tom asks a couple getting married, manages to get in a picture with them.

Jeff and Luke are carrying the girl, Alana and Mel give the princess a hard bump

Alana: "How does everyone else carry it so easily?"
Mel: "Because they're boys"

Jeff and Luke give the models directions, and Sam and Renae proceed to run the other way.

Nathan and Tyler are at the end, finish the Detour in number one but their arms are so dead they can't rip the clue.

ROADBLOCK: Who's aim is true?

Using no more than 40 arrows, teams must hit a target twice- BUT if someone hits a bullseye they get a 50 dollar bonus to use on the race.

Nathan will shoot the arrows.

Alana and Mel discuss the pros and cons of switching detours vs. pushing on. Mel suggests quitting is a viable option.

And back

Alana and Mel still pondering quitting. They decide not to and drag her instead, and it is a lot easier apparently. Jeff and Luke are still working at it, Luke gives his jacket to teh princess so she doesn't get cold. Sam and Renae are struggling.

Renae says all she has to do to get Sam pumped is mention the ex girlfriend.

Chris and Anastasia finish second and had no stress, so they are starting to work together.

Dave and Kelly have found the key & Chris is doing the Roadblock.

Dave and Kelly now cannot find the princess

Matt and Tom ask an old man who doesn't speak English. Tyler and Nathan are at the archery and Nathan looks like he's never shot a bow before. Firs shot is an airball. Nathan hits one before we cut back to Dave. Kelly looks up and spots the princess at the "Hotel Prince"

Dave calls the bow and arrow task and takes it on.

Nathan hits the second target and chooses to stay for the chance at the extra 50 dollars. Takes a few more shots and decides to go.

Heading to the Pit Stop and the last team to arrive "may end up in the dungeon"

Matt and Tom find the keymaster, who is listening to an ipod.

they find the princess easily and Matt does  the Roadblock.

Chris is struggling with the shooting, and Anastasia comments about how she's done archery before. :res:

Chris gets close, then airballs again.

Chris then proceeds to fire a shot backwards, but fortunately does not him himself in the head ala Brooke.

Jeff and Luke are done with the Detour and Chris hits the target the first time.

Tyler and Nathan arrive at the Pit Stop for back to back first places.

The boy models win themselves a $5000 shopping spree from Katmandu (Good thing they didn't win the one on offer in Port Elizabeth)

Chris says its crunchtime, then airballs again.

Ana tells him he can do it and we get a slow motion shot of him aiming before the ad break. (50 bucks from Nab for whoever can pick what's going to happen next.)

And we're back

Google translate is now available on vodafone.

Chris is sticking with the task and slaps a NAB bullseye for 50 bucks.

Chris: "We hit that target, it was not me alone."

Chris and Ana leave while Mat and Tom are arriving. Matt is shooting crossbow and has no hits when Dave arrives.

Dave lands a NAB bullseye and for 50 dollars.

Alana and Mel get directions to the detour end point, and finish it 6th, off to the Roadblock.

Luke arrives to shoot and Matt has run out of arrows. Dave has hit twice and off he goes.

Matt: "Dave, have you got any spare arrows?"
Dave: "Hahaha nup."

Luke smashes a NAB bullseye for 50 dollars and goes. He chooses to give his "thirty something" arrows to Matt before going. Matt hits 2 very quickly after Jeff and Luke depart, so he may have been onto something with his bad arrows theory.

Chris does a 360 spin onto the mat and they check in 2nd.

The models are done with the detour, and finish second.

Alana is very confident going into the Roadblock "For the first time this race I've felt confident stepping up"

Dave and Kelly are getting a tram to the Pit Stop, Father/Son and Farmers elect for a taxi. Dave and Kelly are looking for the mat, the two taxis have arried and beaten the bikers.

Jeff and Luke check in 3rd, Matt and Tom right behind for fourth.

Alana is still on zero hits as Sam and renae arrive.

And back- Alana misses again, Renae still missing.

Renae has struck for her 2nd hit and Alana has 4 or 5 left.

Alana hits for her second right behind the models. It's looking like it'll be a taxi race to the pit stop.
