‘Amazing Race’ Recap: ‘Hei Ho Heidi Ho’

Teams head to Liverpool as they try to make top three

Teams were London bound as they began racing for spots in the final three.

Once there, they drove to Liverpool for Anfield Stadium where they would each have to score two penalty kicks before continuing on with the race.

The Afghanimals were in the lead early, both arriving and finishing the soccer task first. Caroline and Jennifer and Brenchel were the next ones to finish, with Dave and Connor arriving and finishing in last because Connor is really bad at soccer.

From there, teams headed to the Pontcysyllte aqueduct, where they encountered a Roadblock. Here, teams had to learn and perform a passage of traditional Welsh poetry. They would learn it in the 15-minute ride across the aqueduct and recite it to a linguist before receiving their clue.

After the aqueduct, teams headed to the Bolesworth Estate, where they encountered a Detour. In “Shoot It,” teams had to shoot down 16 clay pigeons with a 12-gauge shotgun. Caroline and Jennifer, Dave and Connor and Leo and Jamal chose this one. In “Boot It,” teams had to choose either matching pairs of size 9 or size 11 Wellingtons, fill them with water, and throw them across a course until they crossed the finish line. Brendon and Rachel chose this one.

After the Detour, teams headed to Peckforton Castle for the Pit Stop. Dave and Connor placed first, winning not only the first spot in the final three, but also a 7-night trip for two to Fiji. Caroline and Jennifer placed second.

After choosing the wrong size boot and having to repeat their Detour, and after getting badly lost on the way to the Estate, the last spot in the final three came down to including either Brendon and Rachel or Leo and Jamal. In the end, Leo and Jamal came just short of the final three for the second season in a row, and were eliminated in fourth place.
