Not My Finest Moment
Last time, the Racers headed to Atlantis,
where a roadblock forced the Harlem Globetrotters out of it temporarily.
A miracle happened as Mika couldn't overcome her fear of water, dropping
her and Canaan to last place and out of the game. Now six teams remain
as the race continues from the desert...

FARMER'S GAME or
In both Detours, you must don
traditional Dutch farmer's outfits.
FARMER'S GAME: Strip down to your
farmer's underwear and swim across a stream to a set of golf clubs.
Then play a round of farmer's golf. You must finish at or below a
par 3 in order to receive your next clue.
FARMER'S DANCE: Find a country festival, where you must grab a
hammer and hit the bell atop a high-striker. Then you will have to
learn and perform a traditional Dutch farmer's dance. When you have
danced to the instructor's liking, you'll receive a herring with
onions, which you will have to eat to receive your next clue.
Sam & Dan are the first to dress up (Dan
decides to be "the girl"). Meanwhile, Ericka gets... closer to the right

who inform them that they're team #1, and the winners of a pair of sand
Meanwhile, Maria & Tiffany have tried 30
times... and to no avail. On the other hand, Flight & Big try once...
and boom. On to dancing.
Meghan & Cheyne clock in at second.
Brian & Ericka arrive a the Detour and
decide to dance, just as Maria & Tiffany decide to swim. They have a
better time hitting... their clubs. Back at the Detour, Brian & Ericka
forget their bikes. Flight & Big eat fish... though Flight Time has a
hard time finishing it.
Maria & Tiffany return to the
high-striker for attempt #31. Between them and Brian & Ericka walking,
this is a battle to avoid last place. But Brian & Ericka remember their
