Previously on The Amazing Race, 7 teams raced from Bangladesh to Istanbul.

Rob decided to continue taking the metro instead of getting off and taking a taxi. Teams got scrubbed down at the detour. Lexi served sherbet with a smile and her and Trey won their first leg. James had trouble selling, but Monster Truckers ended up getting eliminated.

6 teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?

Jaymes: "Europe, Asia, Europe, Asia." :lol:

Trey & Lexi depart first at 12:35 PM. Fly to Moscow, Russia. Then proceed to Zurab Tsereteli Sculpture Park. Lexi wants a ring on her finger. Trey tells her, "Esay."

Abbie & Ryan depart at 12:56 PM. $420 for this leg of the race. They feel like Nadiya & Natalie have an alliance with Trey & Lexi so that they can U-Turn Abbie & Ryan.

James & Abba depart at 1:03 PM. They're less than 100% but they think they can still beat the other teams.

Trey & Lexi are at the airport, but they don't know what flight company to ask. They end up getting food.

Natalie & Nadiya depart at 1:44 PM. Their taxi driver tells them he loves them? Or they love him? Something like that. :stare

Jaymes & James find a flight arriving at 2:00 AM. They book it.

Abbie & Ryan pass Trey & Lexi and it's awkward. Lexi thinks that Abbie & Ryan are being rude. What did they do. :stare Lexi tells Natalie & Nadiya about the encounter.

Trey & Lexi and Natalie & Nadiya are on the flight scheduled to arrive at 4:00 AM.

Josh & Brent and Abbie & Ryan's flight was delayed 1 hour. They're running to make the transfer... They both miss their transfer.

And we're back.

Abbie & Ryan and Josh & Brent are stuck at Frankfurt. There's no flights out until tomorrow morning.

Jaymes & James and James & Abba's flight lands. They're looking for the statue.

Abbie & Ryan and Josh & Brent find out that the earliest flight is with Warsaw and it lands at 3:10 PM. :stare

There's an hours of operation at the park. Jaymes & James and James & Abba have to wait. Trey & Lexi and Natalie & Nadiya arrive at the park. Jaymes wonders where Abbie & Ryan and Josh & Brent are at.

The park gates open at 9:30 AM. "We're off to see the wizard!" I don't know who said it.

Mad running to the clue box. Make your way to the Moskvoretsky Most and find a guard who will give the next clue.

It's 25 minutes by walking. Chips, Trey & Lexi and twins all decide to walk it. Jaymes & James got a taxi, and they arrive first. They get the first clue. Detour: Synchronized or Alphabetize.

Alphabetized: They have to select 4 books from a list and search for a card that lists the book's location. Then they have to find the books. It's all in Russian.

Synchronized: Synchronized swimming with the next generation of Russian Olympic swimmers. They have to learn a routine.

Rockers pick library. Trey & Lexi pick library. Chips and twins pick swimming. Nobody wants to give the twins a ride. "It's because we're brown." :lol:

The rockers get the list and they start trying to find the cards. "I'd rather drown."

The Chips arrive at the swimming pool. The Chips change into the speedo. They have to wear floral swimming caps. They have their cuffs on, but they have to take it off. :lol3: "A little showgirl action." They start learning the routine. They have to do 8 counts. Jaymes says they can do 8 counts. The routine gets complicated in the water. Their instructor laughs at them. :lol: There are spins and stuff.

Natalie & Nadiya say they have an hour deficit. :ascared They still have their EP.

Jaymes & James decide to go for the routine. This is really funny to watch. :lol: The editing highlights their errors. :lol: Close-up too. :lol: On their fourth attempt, they're close to finishing the routine but James flips out of sync.

Back at the library, James & Abba are still struggling finding the cards. Trey & Lexi arrive at they're confused as well.

Back at Warsaw airport, Josh & Brent and Abbie & Ryan discuss their huge time gap. :(

Trey & Lexi were basically looking at shapes. They find one card. James & Abba switch detour. Natalie & Nadiya arrive at the swimming pool.

It seems like the twins are going to use their Express Pass. Both Detour tasks are difficult to understand without any language other than Russian and head moving.

The twin's instructor doesn't speak English...

Trey & Lexi continue looking for cards. They find all their cards. :o Now they begin looking for their books... If they picked the wrong information, then they're screwed. There are bookcases after bookcases after bookcases. :stare They find their first book.

Natalie & Nadiya try doing the routine. Their routine does not get approved. They don't understand any of the instructions because the swimmers and coach are speaking in Russian. They wonder if they should use the Express Pass...

Commercial.

And we're back. Their instructor asks them to try it once again (in Russian). They choose to use the Express Pass. Jaymes & James tell them not to waste it because they're at the front. Natalie & Nadiya decide not to quit.

Trey & Lexi get their four books, and the library dramatically checks each book. All their books are approved, and they're out of the detour in 1st. Proceed by taxi to The Luzhkov Most and find the "Trees of Love." Lexi likes that. :lol:

The Chips try the routine another time. Their coach is counting. :lol: Natalie & Nadiya watch the Chips do their routine. The Chips complete the detour and they're out in 2nd. Chips encourage the twins.

Trey & Lexi get the roadblock clue.

Roadblock: Unlock Trees of Love. Find a key that unlocks each of the locks with a race flag on it. Then there's a ribbon that has their next clue. There are keys on some of the locks after. Trey does the roadblock. Lexi says that there are people who look like they're going to weddings.

The twins finish the detour in 3rd.

James & Abba's routine does not get approved.

Trey & Lexi arrive at the pit stop. A male playing an accordion (?) greets them. They are team #1 again! They won a trip to Maui. Phil asks them how in love they are on a scale of 1-10. Lexi says 1000. The accordion player plays a bit and Trey & Lexi dance. :luvya:

James finishes unlocking all the locks and they're off to the pit stop!

Nadiya and Natalie have some twin bickering. :lol:

Josh & Brent and Abbie & Ryan travel together. :hrt:

Jaymes & James are team #2.

Josh & Brent and Abbie & Ryan get their clue to the park.

James & Abba are still working on synchronized swimming.

Josh & Brent and Abbie & Ryan both decide to do library... but the library closes at 4. They have to do swimming. This is actually so cute. :lol:

James & Abba's routine gets approved. They're out of the detour in 4th.

Natalie finishes the roadblock. They fight but they make up like little kids? :lol:

Abbie used to be a dance instructor so she wasn't worried. Josh & Brent dreaded this challenge.

Natalie & Nadiya are team #3. They don't think it's good. They say they can use their EP next leg to get first.

Pit Stop:
1st: Trey & Lexi
2nd: Jaymes & James
3rd: Natalie & Nadiya

James & Abba arrive at the trees. They left their stuff in the taxi... They got caught up in the challenge and their cab driver left. They lost all of their stuff. :oh :stare

And we are back. James continues to do the roadblock. They hope their taxi driver is just doing a loop or something. James finishes the roadblock, but they need their stuff. James doesn't have his passport. They decide to go to the pit stop anyway.

Abbie & Ryan do the routine. They felt a burst of energy. They get approved. Lots of clapping for them. They're out of the detour in 5th. They decide to stay and watch for Josh & Brent because they decided to work together. :hrt: :hrt: :hrt:

"He's like a buoy!" The coach is quite mean. :stare Josh & Brent's routine doesn't get approved. They go for attempt #2. Brent is struggling because he swallows the water. "We're farmers, not synchronized swimmers." omg the coach is actually just so mean. :stare Abbie & Ryan wait for them.
