AND we are ON THE AIR, EVERYONE! Smile for the cameras! :)

Previously on TAR, 11 teams began a race around the world. But for the first time ever, the race was suspended by the coronavirus. After nineteen months, seven teams returned ready to race again. Some teams tested their limits while others upheld their commitments. And three fell short - Michael & Moe, Akbar & Sheri, and Lulu & Lala - I'm sorry to tell you you've been eliminated from the race. (Wow, none of the four teams who were on the first time around? :groan:)

Ryan & Dusty started off strong, but a series of struggles had them grasping for a place in the final four. Raquel & Cayla had their share of mistakes and laughter, but the flight attendants never lost sight of their all-female team mission and are hitting their stride when it matters the most. Internet stars Kim & Penn raced with determination and their sense of humor, but it was their love and trust of each other that fueled them to finish in 1st four times. Arun & Natalia had their dreams crushed early, but after a surprise return, the father/daughter duo defied the odds by surviving multiple non-eliminations and raced their way into the final 4.

Coming up to tonight, one team will win THE AMAZING RACE and the one million that comes with it.

All teams chartering 17,000 miles to Portugal! Upon arrival, teams will start in Lisbon at Christ the King in Alamada. They must then drive to Fortaleza de Sao Filipe in Setubal and search the distance for a race flag where they will find the location of their first of two Roadblocks.

Raquel & Cayla depart first and almost drive down the stairs. :lol:

Arun & Natalia and Kim & Penn depart in Group 2 with Natalia knowing Ryan & Dusty are chasing their tails. They want to play it hard today. Arun says they cannot make any mistakes, no room for error. Penn wings it and refuses to ask for directions. Kim says the margin of error is very slim. They came back to the race to show their kids that they wanted to finish what they started.

Ryan & Dusty depart in last to Fortaleza. Dusty believes the bad luck ran out and adversity brings out the character in people.

We come back from commercial break to Arun & Natalia asking for directions while Raquel & Cayla need to backtrack and they bypass the father-daughter duo. Kim & Penn arrive at Fortaleza de Sao Filipe and take in the view to search for a flag. They immediately see the flag and strategize their way to the promenade. "Color blind Penn found the flag!" :lol:

Raquel & Cayla and Kim & Penn notice each other's cars.

Raq & Cayla start scouring the vista while Ryan & Dusty follow from behind.

Arun & Natalia start running into the fort as the two teams leave the site to navigate.

Arun & Natalia spot the flag and start sprinting to their cars. Ryan & Dusty enjoy passing the father-daughter and flight attendants, having their eyes set on beating Kim & Penn.

All teams struggling to get to the flag with Kim & Penn arriving at the fish net clue box.

ROADBLOCK: "Who wants to go exploring?"
One team member must choose a boat with a name of an explorer and row it to the other side of the marina. If they have the correct expeditioner out of a number of celebrities, they will receive their next clue.

Kim and Cayla do the task. Kim doesn't know any of the names on the boats and takes a wild guess. She doesn't know how to row.

Arun & Natalia arrive at the dock in 3rd as Arun does the task. Cayla gets on a boat. "Cristiano Ronaldo is not!" :funny:

Cayla gets on a Bartholomew Diaz boat and struggles to row. Arun tries to pick out a boat.

Meanwhile, Kim gets it right on the first try! Wow!

ROUTE INFO: Travel on foot to Mercearia Confianca de Troino!

Ryan & Dusty arrive while Arun selects a boat of the most Portuguese-sounding name to him. Raquel gets the boat correct and leave the dock in 2nd.

Kim's boat is just the Portuguese name of Magellan. She definitely picked the most obvious one.

We come back to the vessel vicarity with Arun steadily spinning the boat. Dusty enjoys seeing Arun struggling because there's no time to fall behind while Ryan picks out the wrong boat.

Raquel & Cayla and Kim & Penn ask for directions.

We get end credits music as Arun notices Vasco de Gama. He tries to get back to the shore as fast as possible, unfortunately, Rayn returns and selects the same boat. "You took my booatt!" Dusty roars with excitement with Natalia frustrated.

Kim & Penn arrive at the cafe.

ROUTE INFO: Teams must pick a sardine can and replicate the canister cover by painting it on a door to receive their next clue.

I knew a couple of the explorers. I recognized the name Fernando Pessoa, so that might have fooled me. Amazing how fast they all bunched up just getting to the first clue box.

Looks like Arun almost just made a wise boat switch, but wasn’t quite fast enough.

As Ryan & Dusty go to the cafe, Arun finally starts to get the hang of rowing a boat. Meanwhile, Kim & Penn noticed they picked the hardest canister. Raquel & Cayla arrive and tries to select the fastest one to paint. Ryan & Dusty follow just behind and start painting.

Arun & Natalia still at the dock as Arun picks out the wrong boat of a U.N. Secretary.

Kim's boat is just the Portuguese name of Magellan. She definitely picked the most obvious one.

These conversions / translations always make me confused. Was educated in Portuguese, and they do translate all the old kings names, then when you start consuming content in English, it takes a while to actually understand who is who. Cause the names don't match.

Kim is flustered a bit while Raquel & Cayla hope they can make up time with accurate art. Dusty is an art enthusiast and tries to quickly finish the mural up. Arun sees no logic behind picking out the boats.

Teams at the painting starting to get sloppy with errors popping up all across the board.

Arun finally gets a correct explorer boat and leave the dock in last.

"I'd rather be painting a sardine can than eating a can of sardines." Raquel & Cayla get a check, but forget an octopus' tentacle. Meanwhile, Kim & Penn get a second check only to forget another painted-black letter. Raquel & Cayla notice their error and ask for another check.

They get the clue!

ROUTE INFO: Drive to Santuario de Cabo Especial!

"We're gonna lose The Amazing Race if we can't paint" - Kim.
Third time's the charm and they leave the site in 2nd!

Ryan & Dusty found Arun & Natalia not showing up as surprising. And just in time, they show up at the door.

Raquel & Cayla want to ask for directions, but are missing their Route Info clue and map back at the sardine murals. Uh oh. "This is how we go out, because I lost the frickin' map." - Cayla

Ryan & Dusty get a check with a disapproval. Arun & Natalia see a glimmer of hope. Meanwhile, Kim & Penn are driving to the location. Raquel & Cayla go to buy another map at a gas station.

Ryan & Dusty and Arun & Natalia are still painting with Ryan & Dusty absolutely lost on the doorknob portion, repeatedly looking over it. Dusty can't figure out what they are doing wrong.

I’m enjoying this so far. The tasks allow people to excel or screw up, so plenty of opportunities to scramble up the positions.

We return from break to Ryan & Dusty's mural mystery. They are painting over things that don't need to be painted.  :funny:

Meanwhile, Arun & Natalia feel like they are catching up.

Kim & Penn arrive at the sanctuary and find the second Roadblock.

ROADBLOCK: "Who has to do this Roadblock?"
The other team member who did not perform the last RB must count the total number of columns within a vantage point and go to a monk at a prayer house to give the number. If they are right, the monk will point the direction to Farol do Cabo Espechal, the Pit Stop of this leg. Last team to check in will be eliminated.

Penn is absolutely taken aback by the perspective.

Meanwhile, Ryan and Dusty finally find the sneaky doorknob and receive their clue.
