And here we commence!

Previously on TAR, 9 teams flew from Antwerp, Belgium to Tangier, Morocco! Teams rocked the Kasbah, but mistakes were made! And advantages were gained! The exhausting day took a toll on Cedric. "I'm just hard. It's just hard," dropping Team Slam Dunk to the back of the pack. Yale and Indy were in a foot race to 1st which ended up Evan/Henry earning 1st, and Cedric & Shawn had a bad day, but were saved!

9 teams remain, who will be eliminated next?!

Henry & Evan are shown receiving a trip from Santorini.

They depart at 11:34 to Nice, France! Teams must travel to Saint-Tropez upon landing and travel along the coast to a beach for their next clue.

Indy depart in 2nd a minute behind Yale. They believed speed limits are unfair, but must obey them... okay.
Kristi & Jen depart 2 minutes behind them followed by Trevor & Chris in 4th.
Cody & Jessica depart 5th in their taxi, and Joey & Tim in 6th, and Eric & Daniel in 7th steering their taxi drivers in maps.

Lucas & Brittany are a bit at unease with the traffic. Brittany's father believes Luke isn't interested in marriage, but wants to show that he is. They seem rather sleep deprived...

Cedric & Shawn depart last on their way to the airport. Cedric apologizes that THE RACE IS HARDER THAN IT LOOKS! Now that's not something everyone will admit to by the third leg.

We return with teams, in some fashion of teleportation wizardry, arriving in Nice! They are in a mad dash to drive to Saint Tropez! Eric & Daniel immediately drives the wrong way. Before the race, they had a baby and want the money to raise their kids. Eric struggling to drive in reverse and are pushing their car - along the expressway, hahaha.

Kristi & Jen and Alex & Conor driving in awe. Cody & Jessica is also in some sort of daze. Kristi & Jen arrive first and notice the Speed Bump!

ROADBLOCK: "Who's ready to break waves?"
One team member must row an Optimus dinghy around a course to pick up two halves of a clue and return successfully without capsizing to move on to the DETOUR!

Alex & Conor arrive 2nd.

Jen "Woohoo we beat the boys!"
Kristi is struggling right off the bat. She can't keep the boat still - like a cat.

Conor: "This is like the Titanic of the Saint-Tropez."

Cody & Jessica arrive 3rd. Meanwhile, Kristi is settled into her boat and sailing away. Alex took 20 minutes to learn how to row. Henry & Evan arrive 4th as Kristi grabs her first half. Jessica plans to massage Cody after this task.

Joey & Tim still driving. Cedric & Shawn arrive at La Mouxe lost, and Eric & Daniel are also lost stopping at a home's gate. Lucas & Brittany are freaking out and decide to stop at a gas station for directions.

Back at the shore, Cody is paddling with one oar - are you serious? And we move on to Evan learning the ropes of steering. Alex grabs his first half while Kristi is passing him by. Alex is rowing the wrong way! LOL

Kristi and Jen open their Detour clue!

DETOUR: Bread
In Bread, teams must make 30 baguettes to receive their next clue. In Tread, teams must go to a cobbler and handcraft a pair of sandals to receive their next clue.

Trevor & Chris arrive next at the boats while Alex returns with only ONE HALF OF A CLUE

Alex forgets the number one rule of the Race: reading the clue entirely, properly, and thoroughly!

Violinists close in and get to sailing. ANd Joey & Tim are right behind them. "This is ridiculous."

Cedric & Shawn determine they drove the wrong way. Eric & Daniel somehow parallel parked their car on someone else's driveway, how?! :snicker:. And Brittany is having an emotional meltdown while Lucas and her are still at the gas station trying to calm down after their recent minor argument, trying to suck it up but can't.

And we come back with Lucas & Brittany apologizing to each other at the gas station. They are learning from each leg of the race how to work better together. Brittany is now genuinely happy and determined to get back in it!

Meanwhile, Alex finally grabs their final half while Cody grabs his first clue. Evan is frustrated with the dinghy and panicking. Trevor & Chris and Joey & Tim are neck-and-neck struggling in the water. Joey capsizes while Cody grabs his 2nd part of the clue. Evan hits the pier and is stuck along the shoreline. "Am I stuck on something?" Uh yes, yes you are.

Cedric & Shawn encounter their SPEED BUMP! They must stack 15 Oculus boats in numerical order on the racks from left to right to proceed to their Roadblock. Shawn and Cedric believe the manual labor made this task a lot easier for them despite the tediousness.

Trevor is finally rowing away with two oars down at once. Joey is steering using the win, another strategy. And Trevor grabs his clue first while Joey is next.

Evan has no idea what she's doing. Rowing with one oar is no help, not moving at all. And suddenly, the metal rod punches Evan's tooths and cracks a bit of it off. :faint: She keeps on going.

Meanwhile, Kristi & Jen are at the sandal Detour! It's more about attention to detail and they figure this strategy out. Meanwhile, Cody & Jessica and Alex & Conor arrive at Bread and begin the process. It's a bakery heaven for both of them while the head baker is shaking his head. Oh geez.

Cedric & Shawn finish their Speed Bump and are allowed to move along to the Roadblock in 7th! Nice job! Lucas & Brittany arrive 8th at the boats. Evan finally realizes the wind would help them blow her boat rather than her manually rowing it with no head with the wind. Meanwhile, Cedric and Lucas are catching up to her. Brittany is in worriment as she sees Cedric constantly capsizing his dinghy. "One team hasn't even showed up!" And that team finally shows up, Eric & Daniel are in last place and arrive at the RB!

"Come on everything quick. It ain't over til it's over!" ~ Eric.

At the Bread Detour, teams figure they did the roll wrong. Baker seems extremely pissed while the Indy drivers are arguing over the form of the bread. Conor complains how he is whiny when nothing goes his way. At the sandals, Kristi & Jen's sandals receive feedback that they have to flatten out their nail heads.

Lucas & Brittany move up to 6th as they grab their last clue half and Evan FINALLY gets hers! Woohoo! Eric & Daniel and Cedric & Shawn are titanic disasters, pun intended. The firefighter is rowing the wrong way and stuck in a corner with the wind holding them back. "It's a murder scene out there. There's no way!" - Shawn. Cedric tips his boat on its side and falls into the water. Shawn is distraught.

We come back as Eric & Daniel and Cedric & Shawn are caught in their own blunders. A cute dog walks by Shawn and he offers him a food for thought. Daniel finally figures out the wind pattern helps his speed while Cedric is following through as well. Physical strength had nothing to do with the dinghy riding smoothly, it required technique and the direction of the wind. They each start grabbing their pair of clues.

 Meanwhile, Kristi & Jen finish the sandals and encounter THE HEAD-TO-HEAD! Teams must compete against each other in a traditional game of "boton" (a variation of marbles) to be able to check in with Phil. Last team remaining without a win may be eliminated. Cody & jess and Alex & Conor both working on breads. Trevor describes himself as the Martha Stewart of his house as he and Chris arrive at the sandals. Joey & Tim arrive just behind them.

The Roadblock proves to be wrapping up as Dan and Cedric get their final halves of the clue.

Meanwhile at Place de Lices, Kristi & Jen await their opposing team.

Joey is sweating his ass off as he makes his sandals. Trevor & Chris finish the Detour in 4th and Lucas & Britt follow from behind. Alex & Conor magically finish the breads and are at the petanque, ohhh, okay, battle.

It's Kristi & Jen vs Alex & Conor as the first duel!

Cody & Jessica arrive 3rd and are idle at the courts. Meanwhile, Kristi and Conor facing each other off with Conor's ball in the lead. Jen and Alex are rolling off and Jen knocks the pink jack out of the position!

Please be quiet, Phil. This ain't the NFL...

And Kristi & Jen fall out of 1st and allow Alex & Conor to take up TEAM NUMBER 1, each winning $5,000 post-race as their reward!
Kristi & Jen vs Cody & Jessica up next.

Meanwhile, Joey & Tim finish the sandals in 5th while Henry & Evan are greeted into the sandals factory next.

Jessica throws a ball an inch away from the jack, jeopardizing the skiiers' chances of being in the top of the pack. They lose for the second time, unable to get their balls close to the pink marker.

Cody & Jessica check in 2nd.

Lucas & Brittany get their clue in 6th place from the sandals.

Kristi & Jen vs Trevor & Chris! The skiiers get their heads back together while Trevor & Chris get beginner's worst luck.
Kristi & Jen check in 3RD!

Meanwhile, Lucas & Brittany get the 6th ball while Trevor & Chris vs Joey & Tim are battling off. The eaters move up to 4TH and check in successfully. Henry & Evan get their clue from the Detour.

It's Trevor & Chris vs. Lucas & Brittany and immediately, we are shown the violinists taking 5TH PLACE. (This task is boring me...)

Eric & Daniel and Cedric & Shawn are on each others' "heels".

It's Evan & Henry vs Lucas & Brittany, Team Yale in fear of this new task. And they end up winning, checking in at 6TH PLACE.

The basketballers get their next clue while Eric & Daniel are right behind them in last place, both getting their clues. Eric & Daniel and Cedric & Shawn go to find the Place de Lices.

It's Lucas & Brittany vs Eric & Daniel! The lifeguards keep losing in distress while Eric & Daniel check in 7TH PLACE. The firefighters believe this is a brutal task. Brittany is "over it" with this petanque task and is in tears once again. What an emotional rollercoaster leg for her this leg. Only one chance left against the veteran basketballers.

We return with Lucas & Brittany hugging it out and consoling themselves before their final duel of the day with Cedric & Shawn.

It's Cedric & Shawn vs Lucas & Brittany! Game ON!
Brittany rolls it very close to the pink jack while Phil is back at narrating the Vikings vs. Eagles play by play. Ughh.
Cedric & Shawn have only one shot to take home the win. And Lucas plays the ball to punch the ball to bounce off Shawn's throw and land his super close to the pink jack. Cedric & Shawn are in danger zone.

And LUCAS & BRITTANY WINS! The lifeguards move onto the Pit Stop in 8TH, making Cedric & Shawn stick to last and become eliminated.

"I can't complain. I'm not even supposed to be here. God let me fulfill a dream." - Cedric. The leave the race with high hopes and a good will.

-------------------------------

Alex & Conor depart 1st at night to Les Baux, France and find the next clue at the Chateau Les Baux (a reminiscent of TAR1 where we show Kevin & Drew greeting the official.) Cody calls it the Lesbian Chateau by mistake with Jessica jokingly agreeing with him in 2nd. Kristi & Jen depart 3rd hoping to stick in the pack. Joey & Tim depart 4th with more trust in themselves.

Trevor & Chris depart 5th grumpy, bashful, and makes Chris "Snow White". "Good eats and good treats".
Evan & Henry depart 6th where it is revealed Evan's tooth is fixed from that smash in the previous Roadblock. They stick to their happiness.
 Eric & Daniel depart 7th.
And Lucas & Brittany depart in last with sad elimination music coming on for some reason as they announce their ups and downs in their relationship. This is kind of awkward...

Maybe if the head-to-head is on different parts of the race course, and not always at the pit stop, that would be great. :hug?:
