Team Dong, Twin N’s and FNL all arrive at the port and are very excited to see each other. It’s kinda nice to see everyone in the top three kinda like each other. Quick side note, Fran and I used to work on a cruise ship sorting garbage and ported in Barcelona every Sunday for six months. We’ve spent so much time exactly where they are waiting it feels like home! AHHHH!!! I MISS FRAN AND LIL’ C!! Sleeping next to cold pizza just isn’t the same!!!!

Okay, I’m done crying. It’s Tuesday, but I am carrying on.
Once at the ferry station they find out that they have 12 hours to kill! Wow, that’s kinda fun. You don’t see a free day a lot on this show. I hope they got into some wacky adventures so Amazing Race can release the spin-off show, The Amazing Case….of the missing diamonds!
The teams get back to the ferry station, see the Goat Boys and FLIP OUT! They are so excited. Not to see Goat Boys of course. Those two old men are a black hole of excitement. Yep, they drown fun like it’s a bag of puppies. No, the teams are excited because that means Choke Out is out! The subtext of the cheering is, “Yeah, you’re the worst team and you’re easy to beat and you’re still here so it’ll be easy to beat you! Yeah Goat Boys!”
So all the teams are on the ferry to the Island of Mallorca to find some devils. They all jump in cabs and are on their way! Well……except for the Goat Boys. They are immediately lost. Oh boy (sad trombone…….)
The real teams are looking for the clue and the devils are all blowing fire and screaming in the faces. Kind of reminds me of the first time I met Fran’s family.
Teams must now drive themselves to Centre De Alto Rendimiento, a tennis club, where they’ll find their next clue. Drive themselves?! You know what that means! FORD FOCUS time! Where’s our free car?! Seriously.
All the teams are following each other to the tennis courts, but Twin N’s are having some car problems. Well, people problems actually. It’s a stick shift and Nadiya had taken one driving lesson to get prepared and thought it seemed easy enough so she quit. Now let’s really see how the Ford Focus handles when the transmission is being grinded to shit!
Team Dong gets to the roadblock first. “Who wants to get smashed?” This is the hometown of tennis great Rafael Nadal, The King of Clay! Really? I thought that was Gumby. Anyway, teams must chose a tennis pro and a basket of balls and face off against a high powered machine and return twenty balls inbounds before their basket it empty. Apparently, Trey from FNL actually plays tennis so he’s psyched. However Team Dong is used to a bunch of balls flying all around them, they’re just not good at controlling where they go.
