Starts with an "F", That's All I'm Saying
Last time, the Racers
arrived in Prague, and were ready for some high
adventure... and some low tactics (stealing a cab,
maybe?). And after taking in a day at the opera, Ericka
& Brian arrived at the Pit Stop in last place. As the
last leg was a non-elimination leg, the two will
encounter a Speed Bump sometime in the course of this
leg, which continues our journey through the Czech
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC
2146 LOCAL TIME
Twelve hours after their
initial arrival, the adventure continues for Meghan &
Cheyne with this...
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
THE SPANISH SYNAGOGUE!
Make your way across the city to
the Spanish Synagogue and search for your next clue.
You have $113 for this
leg of the Race.
SPEED BUMP AHEAD!
Once there, Meghan & Cheyne find this
GO TO A MUSEUM!
Make your way to the Stara
Kanalizacni Cistima, Ekotechnicke Museum.
Sam & Dan are on their way out of the
gate first, while Meghan & Cheyne are already two clues ahead...
IN ORDER TO OBTAIN
THE IMPOSSIBLE, ONE MUST ATTEMPT THE ABSURD!
Enter a convoluted Kafka-esque
room and, amongst 600 ringing telephones, find the five with someone
on the other end, giving you a letter. Once you have all five
letters, unscramble them to find a name. Once you have found the
correct name, the clerk will hand you your next clue.
What's Meghan doing? She's going inside
to take on the room. She gets three letters, R as in rabbit, Z as in
zebra, and F as in ferret. Once Flight Time & Big Easy get out of the
gate... Meghan gets an N, but can't figure out an animal with an N in
its name. Or A for that matter. She gets all five letters, and then she
gets a form with a really .... kafkaesque questionnaire designed to
throw you off. Her first attempt... FAILURE. Second attempt... SUCCESS!
So as Dan & Sam arrive, Meghan & Cheyne
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
Make your way to Kryocentrum,
where you will find your next clue.
Sam & Dan think that they're going to
steal THEIR cab, so they tell the cabbie not to move for anyone
else. He didn't say not to call another cab, though. So Meghan &
Cheyne are on their way to the Kryocentrum
Brian & Ericka are
capable of overcoming the Speed Bump. They know how to
come back. But can they?
The Trotters arrive at
the Roadblock, and Big goes in to take it on.
Dan fails the first try
at the Roadblock.
Meanwhile, Meghan &
CHECK OUT THE
COOLEST HOLISTIC TREATMENT IN TOWN!
Czech athletes have sought the
power of cold to help their bodies' natural healing. Strip down to
little more than your skivvies and enter a cryotherapy room kept at
a brisk 180 degrees below zero Celsius. Endure the cold for two
minutes, and you will receive your next clue.
Cheyne & Meghan get cool, while Brian
& Ericka get...
PAY A VISIT TO THE
Make your way to the Green Ferry
and find the M1 Lounge. There, you will perform three tasks to
prepare a shot of absinthe. Once you have drunk the shot, you will
be able to continue with the Race
Dan... still can't figure out the
five-letter word. Neither can Big. They figure... might as well work
Meghan & Cheyne endure the cold and move
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
Make your way to the Charles
Bridge and search for your next clue.
Dan and big... still have no idea
what the word is... Meanwhile, Brian & Ericka have to get their
drink on. Brian... doesn't drink. He'll drink tonight if he wants to
go to the top three.
Now that they have the Czech people's
blessing (and alcohol), they go to the museum... in time for Dan to
solve the puzzle. Big asks for the response... "It starts with an 'F',
that's all I'm saying." I guess they're back to being enemies.
Brian goes into the museum and searches
Meghan & Cheyne make it to the bridge and
LEGEND or LAGER?
LEGEND: Build a golem by placing
wet clay around a wooden skeleton, then transport it to the Old-New
Synagogue. If the golem is built to the rabbis' satisfaction, they
will hand you your next clue.
LAGER: Carry a total of 30
glasses of beer from a brewery called Pivovar a Restaurace "U Fleků"
through the busy town square and deliver them to soccer hooligans in
a bar named Restaurace Kozička. Once you have completed, the
bartender will serve you your next clue
Meghan & Cheyne go do the golem, while
Sam & Dan go get frozen. Brian continues going around answering phones
until he gets his letters. He tries and... DENIED.
Meghan & Cheyne start building their
golem. They decide to lay him on its back. I don't think it's kosher,
but whatever works at this point.
Sam & Dan come in from the cold and go to
the bridge. Brian goes with a stone guess... and it pays off. They're
going to the Kryocentrum next. AND he did it drunk!
Flight & Big decide that they've been
here long enough and take a penalty. The rules of The Amazing Race state
in the event that a team is unable to complete a Roadblock, they must
take a time penalty of four hours before they are allowed to resume the
Race. They say that this was a benefit to their team, but is it?
Meghan & Cheyne finish their golem. Sam &
Dan go start theirs... and golem fall down go boom... Brian & Ericka...
get cold. Ericka is not a winter baby. And it shows. "My ankles are
frozen!" They come out of it and head to the bridge.
Meghan & Cheyne are drained by the sheer
weight of their golem.
Brian & Ericka decide to serve beer as
Meghan & Cheyne meet the rabbis... and the rabbis bless them with
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
THE PIT STOP!
Make your way to Strelecky Ostrov,
the Pit Stop for this leg of the Race.
WARNING! The last team to check
in MAY BE ELIMINATED!
Sam & Dan have an argument about how
to tackle dragging the golem through the street. Then a taxi comes
and the problem solves itself.
At the other Detour, Brian teaches Ericka
the proper mount for a platter of eight beers. Once they get the hang of
it, in comes a parade of soccer hooligans.
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC
Meghan & Cheyne are the
first to meet Phil and the happy (and hot) local. They
are team #1! Not only have they won an HDTV each, but
they will be the first team to head to the finish line
for $1 million in the final leg!
Back at the Roadblock, Flight and Big are
busy laughing the task off...
Brian serves his beer, but Ericka drops
all of hers... She wants to do the other one. But they press on. Little
do they know that the streets of Prague are full of drunks at night.
Sam & Dan are still fighting their way to
the synagogue, while more drunks decide to mooch off of Brian's tray.
Sam & Dan arrive at the synagogue, and
even with the arm coming out, it's good enough for the clue!
Brian & Ericka are... still getting hit
Sam & Dan arrive at the Pit Stop in
second! They'll also be racing for the million.
The next day brings the next sunrise.
Flight & Big have served their penalty time and are headed to the
Kryocentrum, while Brian & Ericka serve their final beer.
Brian & Ericka.... are the third team to
arrive. That makes them team #3...
And at the Kryocentrum, the Trotters are
met with the
clue. Unfortunately, this is how the Race will end for them. But they
have no regrets as we see their greatest hits, fittingly put to "Sweet
Next time, the sprint to a million
