This week Anthony and Bates were the first to arrive, so they will be the first to depart.

Teams must now make their way to Dresden, Germany.

All teams catch up at the train station that will take them to Germany.

Teams must answer 3 questions in an automated car to get their next clue.

Teams must now drive to Berlin to get their next clue – Max and Katie are in the lead. Bates and Anthony are in 4th place.

Bates lost his backpack and the country singers offer him their underwear. Fortunately, he did not lose his passport.

The country singers are supposed to follow the brothers, but they get lost.

Teams must now find the tallest building (Park Inn Hotel) and then jump down (37 Stories). Max and Katie are still in the lead.

Detour: Train Trials or Font Follies.  Build a train track or carry giant letters. Each detour terminates at a museum.

Caroline and Jennifer catch up with Bates and Anthony and the four are headed to Font Follies. Joey and Meghan are the only team to do Train Trials.  Anthony’s letter breaks and he has to get another one. Instead of getting another letter the brothers switch detours.

Mona and Beth are in 2nd place at this point. And Meghan and Joey have made 7 attempts to get their train running.

Roadblock: Identify a quote by JFK and go through a maze to find the next clue. Max and Katie are way ahead of the other teams.

Max and Katie are team number one.

Mona and Beth seem to be lost in traffic, while Joey and Meghan are on their way to the pitstop.  Bates and Anthony have made 9 attempts to construct their train tracks and are currently in last place.

Joey and Meghan are team number two.

Caroline and Jennifer are team number three.

Bates and Anthony and the Roller Derby moms are neck in neck.

Bates and Anthony are team number four.

Mona and Beth are team number five – but this is a non-elimination leg.
Mona and Beth will encounter a ‘speed bump’ next week.

Next week:  Look for Joey and Meghan to be eliminated.

The teams go to Scotland and there will be a double u-turn in “Working Our Barrels Off”.
