Iceland is one of the fewest place where you can actually see tectonic plates. Now, teams must perform a high wire act and pick up an Icelandic flag to receive their next clue.

Henry & Evan are the first sacrifices!

Honestly, this episode so far is super boring despite the wonderful scenery and great first task....

And I'll try my best, but I'm definitly getting the route as the foremost

Cedric & Shawn are 4th while Kristi & Jen are 5th at the high wires.

April & Sarah have switched drivers and are starting to be frustrated due to some behind the scenes issues. April was sleeping while Sarah was asking the flight attendant or local people for directions. Passive aggressiveness at an all-time high. What did we all miss?

we're back!

April & Sarah are still conflicting passively and April confesses Sarah isn't that nice. Though Sarah believes April gets offensive easily.
Dessie & Kayla are 6th and have a fear of heights. They take on the high wires with insane ease and holding herself together.
Trev & Chris go 7th neckandneck with the ring girls.

Overall, I love Iceland, but oh my gosh, this is a confusing and rather uninteresting episode with little evoking or competitive substance as promised.
