I still think the Margie & Luke and Kisha & Jen had a more catty Pit Stop fight. I remember when the two greeters were eating lunch during that fight like watching a movie.

Tim & Marie are team #4. Jason & Amy are team #5. Jason & Amy are not happy with Tim & Marie. Marie says that their bags weren't in the cab. Marie says that Jason & Amy wouldn't have known what they would have done. Jason & Amy say they wouldn't have stolen a cab. It goes back and forth. Jason says that they went to the FF and came back and they're still in this so they're going to kick their ass. And now it's just silence. Wow awkward.

Pit stop:
1st - Nicole & Travis
2nd - Nicky & Kim
3rd - Leo & Jamal
4th - Tim & Marie
5th - Jason & Amy

Ally and Tim are still struggling at the roadblock. They're getting stopped a lot...

Ally & Ashley survive. Tim & Danny? Not so much
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

Ally finishes the song... And she is told it's acceptable! They're out of the roadblock in 6th. Tim apologizes to Danny. Danny says he wouldn't have done better. Ally & Ashley are trying to get a taxi.

Danny finishes the song... And he gets the clue. I bet it was a pity thing because he can't really sing... :-[ "I can't sing... I can't dance..." "But we can race."

Ally & Ashley get a cab. They're at the palace. Tim & Danny arrive at the palace... Ice girls are in the maze... They get the clue...

Tim & Danny see the girls... They're in the maze now...

Ally/Ashley: "DAMMIT PHIL. WHY DO YOU PICK HILLS."

Tim & Danny get their clue... They're running up the hill...

But Ally & Ashley get there first. They're team #6.

Pit stop:
1st - Nicole & Travis
2nd - Nicky & Kim
3rd - Leo & Jamal
4th - Tim & Marie
5th - Jason & Amy
6th - Ally & Ashley

Tim & Danny are the last team to arrive... and they've been eliminated. They're super thankful that they've gotten to travel the world because they've never been out of the country before.

Pit stop:
1st - Nicole & Travis
2nd - Nicky & Kim
3rd - Leo & Jamal
4th - Tim & Marie
5th - Jason & Amy
6th - Ally & Ashley
7th - Tim & Danny (ELIMINATED)

Next week on The Amazing Race...

Teams head to Abu Dhabi. The race picks up speed. Teams are driving quickly on a racecar track in super fancy cars. Marie goes crazy on a bunch of teams...

They are gone... Is sad to see them go home but I think it was their time to leave...

In the next episode... Surprise surprise, more Marie drama over fruits and Tim's incompetence to arrange it...

This season all Europe legs are great. I really wanted Nicky & Kim won. They're so good if there are not much physical tasks.

Tim & Danny are nice to each others.

Next time Marie vs. Tim :))

I really wanted Nicky & Kim to win this leg because that would have been so random and just.. :lol: but really though they deserve it in my books.

Sad to see Tim & Danny go. I was rooting for them to beat the blondes but the fake suspense told me otherwise.

So...were Jason & Amy completely unaware that Marie is a cut-throat bitch? How?

I totally had a nostalgia fit when I saw the FF task! Then I nerded out when I saw the Choir Roadblock. Since I've been in choir since 4th grade, I totally understand how hard it is to sing in German! I though the leg was very well designed as well!

On a sadder note, Tim & Danny's elimination + me =  :tantrum

The detour task with the masks, the first fast forward that was explicitly "weather dependent", and the roadblock were among the best tasks I've seen on the show in a long time, and they were all on the same leg. Not to mention trains, and the almost rule violation with Jason and Amy and Tim and Marie, and the team that actually removed the bags from the taxi (and they're the ones who should be getting a penalty, but from the way it's edited, it doesn't look like that will happen.

I would have aced that roadblock as when I was jn junior and senior high school, I was in chorus, and I studied German in high school and college, although I haven't done either since. And I can still read German aloud without an accent; which some of the Racers were having trouble with in singing.

Nicky and Kim didn't actually remove Jason and Amy's bags. It was the cab driver who did. They even said that they couldn't touch Jason and Amy's bags.

No one removed the bags but the taxi driver. They even did not tell the taxi driver to do that so no one should get penalty.

Leg 6 (Poland --> Austria) Analysis:
I'd like to start off saying this was a better episode than the previous one in Poland despite the clustering of teams for 70% of the Leg. The tasks overall were really good and hilarious. I'm still kind of disappointed nobody got to do the Donauturm Fast Forward (TAR4 Roadblock "Switchback"). However, we got a mini-Switchback with the hedge maze originating back from TAR10 in Barcelona, Spain.

DETOUR: Chandelier or Masquerade
This Detour wasn't really an even playing field. While the chandeliers required meticulousness and dexterity, teams would have had to start ALL OVER if one piece of glass is fixtured improperly. Didn't like how nobody chose that task. For the masquerade, teams could try all they want to find their correct duo and not receive a different mask like what TAR4 did in its Venetian ballroom Roadblock. It did bring out the best or worst in teams.
DETOUR SCORE: 5/10

FAST FORWARD: Donauturm Bungee Jump AKA TAR4 "Switchback"
Shameful how the plant-crashing winds didn't let Jason & Amy do the Fast Forward, but it did create some good decision making like in TAR14 if teams should walk or wait for the paraglide.
FAST FORWARD SCORE: 9/10

ROADBLOCK: Sing like the Viennese Boys' Choir
This task will remain the symbol of TAR23 for years and beyond! :funny: It brought out the silly of Tim (Team Oklahoma) and Ally doing the task more than three times to get it to the pianist's satisfaction. Jamal's first try made me cry and laugh on the floor :rotf: Nonetheless, the pronunciation of Austrian words are tough and I really do give a ton of respect for their tryings.
ROADBLOCK SCORE: 11/10

OTHER RANDOM SCORES:
LEG DIFFICULTY: 7/10
TRAVEL DRAMA: 8/10
MARIE-BEING-A-KICKA$$-Bit¢h: 20/10 :snics:
EDITING: 8/10
CLASSIC, ADVENTUROUS RACE MUSIC: 3/10
<3 Family, friends, food, freedom... FULFILLED <3

I want to hear Tim (Okla) practicing and singing again & again. It's terrible but it is funny and he was so cute. All the teachers are so friendly, kind and supportive, especially Tim's one.

Poor Bunnies missing a first place :(

Marie <333333333
Jason & Amy <33333333

Though, I think that it's hilarious that Jason & Amy thought Marie WOULDN'T do something like that. :lol:

It's likely just me, but I never understand the logic of removing luggage from one's taxi, only to stick around for whatever reason afterward

I expect a bigger fight than that between Jamy and Pinky.  :)

The Detour is so-so but the RoadBlock is really good. The Bunnies continue doing a great job and their faces in the preview are priceless. :))



Really sad that Okla boys went home.

Not a really good episode, considering the Detour was kind of "manufactured" and just really easy (Tim and Marie finished in 3 mins!) and nobody did the other side.

The whole episode seemed to come down to who can sing better and I think this has been the first time in many seasons we see a task which determined the fate of the teams in the race. So now, if you want to join the race, not only do you have to take part in dance lessons before competing, you also have to go for singing lessons.

The stars of this episode = Nicky and Kim again. Oh my God. To those who have criticised them as being useless racers on this season... time to take back your words.

Glad that Travis and Nicole won the leg, because to be honest, Travis honestly sang and performed the best.

Ally and Ashley... barely survived, sending Tim and Danny home. I like both teams... but then again both teams have been really mediocre this season so they really deserve to go.

Hope that next week will deliver again!

By looking at this leg's overall design, I won't probably like this as much as the last 3 Europe legs.
But I'll still be watching later. :)
