Cedric & Shawn are sitting and waiting for the next team. Meanwhile at the jewelry office, Trevor & Chris finish the appraisal and get their next clue! At the printing press, Lucas & Britt, even with the mirror, get the print wrong. Eric & Daniel switch Detours even after printing the words on Eric's arm. It's do or die for them now!

Commercials.

Don't like the cheesy editing of the head-to-head race. :/
And why didn't they call it face-off? That's a much better name, and they could've even created a clue icon for it. Now it was just a route marker.

I feel like this should've been called "stop n' go" referencing the ramp metering lights, but oh well.

Evan runs into barriers while Kristi runs slow and steady. Phil commentates like it's a college football game and it's quickly annoying me....

Kristi finishes and her & Jen are 3rd!

Not a fan of the placement of this task.
China 4 had a season full of face-off that were much more interesting, and better placed within the different legs.

Chris rams into Henry to slow him down and Henry has lost his frites and starts to slow down even worse. More fatigued than before. Chris finishes this course and check in with Trevor in 4TH.

Conor & Alex move up to 6th after surprisingly finish. Meanwhile, Tim & Joey are right behind them, leaving the goat yoga moms behind.

Lucas & Brittany get 8th place after finally getting their printing press correct.

April & Sarah were about to give up, but the TWINS CAME and renewed their energy. C'mon April & Sarah and Eric & Daniel!

Henry & Evan VS Alex & Conor with a distinct Indy driving experience to help them out with steering and control. Alex has a steering advantage while Evan has run the course prior.  Alex jets ahead while Evan lags behind and crash, they're done... Alex swerves around with a 100 foot lead and finishes the course.

Alex & Conor are 5TH PLACE.

And now Lucas & Brittany VS Henry & Evan! Brittany in the cheering section rooting for her boyfriend. The two are neck-and-neck while Lucas slips past Henry who loses a bag of frites. Henry is exhausted and out of breath... what a major downfall. And Lucas finishes!

Lucas & Brittany are 6TH PLACE! Brittany is crying with joy and also feeling sympathetic for Henry & Evan's 5 consecutive losses in a row with this first stop n go task after Phil brings it up. Evan & Henry are tired and desperate to win one wave any time now.... :(

#FYI you can always sit out a race to rest and wait for a weaker team ... but at the end of the day the earlier you get there the more options you have #Frite race #AmazingRace @BelgiumMFA

Interesting information about the new race mechanic from Phil via Twitter.

And now, those of you who only know the US version, you are seeing why I never overly cared for this type of route marker in the other versions :(

We come back with Henry & Evan VS Tim & Joey!
Tim is out of control while Evan is steadily barrowing. Is that even a word?? Anyway, Tim is rushing ahead but Henry & Evan are damn exhausted. Tim takes home the win.

Joey & Tim takes 7TH PLACE.

April and Dan are racing each other. April has a lead and utilizing Henry's strategy. And Daniel twisted up April's cart to allow him to take the lead........ They both cross the ramp, and the firefighters make it across.

Eric & Daniel are 9TH PLACE while April & Sarah are last... Team Goat Yoga is eliminated from the race.

The goat yoga moms end on a very sweet note and love the experience they had despite finishing off the leg in a very heartbreaking way.
