No Longer in the Bible Belt
Last time, the Racers crossed the Andes
into Argentina. Cowboys Jet & Cord held onto their lead to take another
leg, while lesbian couple Carol & Brandy strained their relationship.
But it was the Legal Moms Monique & Shawne that found themselves
struggling throughout the leg, coming in last. Now the Race continues

Jet & Cord take some time to
check out their vacation from the last leg. Twelve hours later, they'll
just... check out.

Jet & Cord stop at a travel
agency and book tickets for the earliest flight, 11:10a. The rest of the
teams show up at the airport the next morning. Everyone will fly to

ALL OTHER TEAMS
The first flight arrives at
2:35p local time, as Jet & Cord and Louie & Michael take the first train
to Hamburg. The second flight arrives, and they have to book to make the
same train. You have three minutes.... and they miss it.
The third flight arrives.
The second train arrives.
And the Cowboys find the
clue box first.
WHO'S READY TO
REACH NEW HEIGHTS!
WARNING: This is an Intersection.
Choose another team to partner with for this challenge.
Make your way to Hamburg Harbor,
where you will perform a 150 foot tandem bungee jump in the middle
of the city. Once you have taken this leap of faith together, you
will receive your next clue.
Jet and Michael decide to
team up for this challenge. They head to the Metro for the harbor. Joe &
Heidi team with Steve & Allie, as Allie and Joe enlist the help of a
local to get to the subway. Then comes Dan and Brandy as our third
intersected team, enlisting another helpful local. Finally, Caite and
Jordan head to the harbor... on the wrong train.
Jet & Mike are the first to
the bungee cranes. Jet decides that he's not losing his hat to this
bungee. And... sure enough, he doesn't! "A real cowboy's hat never comes
off!" They get their clue and head back.
Joe & Allie are next to take
a jump, followed by Dan & Brandy, and bringing up the rear, the two dumb
blondes Caite & Jordan.
Find Kaiser Wilhelm at the
Altonaer Rathaus, and you will find your next clue.
You are no longer intersected.
Louie & Michael are the
first to the statue, where they find...
SOCCER: Make your way to
Adolf-Jäger-Kampfbahn Stadium and successfully kick a ball from the
penalty mark (12 yd/11 m) through 5 targets located in the goal to
receive their next clue.
SAUERKRAUT: Make your way to Alt
Hamburger Bürgerhaus and eat a plate of sauerkraut while a band
played a song called the "Sauerkraut Polka". If you finish the plate
before the end of the song, you will receive their clue. If the song
ended first, you must start over with a new plate of sauerkraut.
The Cops go with sauerkraut.
They figure they'll have no problem downing a plate of sauerkraut. And
sure enough... they do.
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
Make your way to the Haifischbar
and share a boot of beer. Trade your empty boot for a clue.
Back at the Intersection,
JorDan and Brandy & Carol are reunited, while the other teams rush to
find the statue. The Cowboys go with soccer, as do Joe & Heidi and Steve
At the Haifischbar, the cops
down a boot of beer. At the field, Joe & Heidi get changed while Steve &
Allie start kicking. Joe's knee is killing him.
Brent & Caite head for
sauerkraut, as do Jeff & Jordan.
Steve & Allie finish the
Detour and head to the bar. Joe & Heidi "lane-switch" after having no
success with their balls. The Cowboys then kick the soccerball around.
Louie chugs... Empty beer!
MAKE YOUR WAY TO
THE PIT STOP!
Make your way to Beatles-Platz, a
monument dedicated to the Beatles, who first played American pop
music in Hamburg. Then run through Hamburg's Red Light District and
search for the Indra Musikclub, the Pit Stop for this leg of the
Race. WARNING! The last team to check in MAY BE ELIMINATED!
JorDan go to the soccer
field, while Carol & Brandy eat sauerkraut.
Jeff & Jordan think that
they're being taken for a ride by their cabbie...and it isn't to the
Louie & Michael find the
Beatles-Platz and search through the pubs, clubs, and sex shops for...
... Phil and the Fab Four.
They take first place! And for their trouble, a Discover gift card worth
Steve downs a boot of beer,
while Jet & Cord bend it like... I don't know any famous cowboy soccer
players, sorry, then head to the bar to drink, drink, drink.
Steve & Allie make their way
to Beatles-Platz and find the bar to clock in at second.
Joe & Heidi start eating
sauerkraut. EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY. Carol & Brandy... start eating...
and have a bit of trouble finishing. Dan & Jordan kick balls. Nice form.
At the bar, Jet takes one
for the team.
At the Pit Stop, Steve &
Allie arrive in second.
Joe & Heidi finish their
beer, while Jet & Cord are still working on theirs. Jeff & Jordan get
their sauerkraut.. and it proves to be more than Jordan can handle. THEY
lane-switch. Caite reveals that she's played football soccer since she
was five... but can't get it to go as a pain shoots up her leg.
Joe & Heidi arrive in third.
Cord... gets laughed at before getting their clue.
Brent & Caite finish the
Detour... and it occurs to me that Caite is underage, so Brent will have
to finish the beer boot....
... but not before the
Cowboys lock in the 4-spot. Back on the field, Jeff shows he's a natural
Carol & Brandy are in fifth.
JorDan arrive in sixth. Now it's a race to avoid elimination between the
US Americans and the Heads of Household. But first, Brent pukes. College
At the Red Light District...
it's going to be... Brent & Caite in seventh.
Which leaves Jeff & Jordan,
bringing up the rear in eighth. The GOOD news is that this is the first
non-elimination leg of the Race. The bad news is that the next leg has a
Speed Bump. They're the underdogs, but they live to fight another day.
