Back at the airport, Twin N’s are trying to get FNL and Dong on the same page with U-Turning Choke Out. They all make a blood oath. Team Dong is hesitant because Jaymes wants to play nice. Twin N’s appeal to the other James (no Y) and get him to agree to eliminate Choke Out.
Choke Out arrives at the airport and are booking their flight through Frankfurt, again. Even though they had bad luck the last time they were there. But they are booking multiple connecting flights incase they miss their first one. Is that allowed? I guess so because they are doing it.
The teams take flight and we are Philled in:
Twin N’s board their flight via Rome.
Dong has a direct flight.
FNL via Larnaca (whatever that is.)
Choke Out via Frankfurt
Hours later Goat Boys get to the airport and are flying through Oslo.
Twin N’s touchdown first. Apparently there is no footage of Nadiya screaming, “You can do it Twinnie,” while Natalie forcefully reopens a closed gate! So they hit the Amsterdam ground running and take the train to the station and get their next clue. They are going to do the Fast Forward, they take a bike cab to the Van Gogh cafe, then get on a bus.
Berry leaves these for me to clean all the time.
Team Dong lands and get on the train.
Choke Out are in Frankfurt and miss the first connecting flight, they keep yelling at the gate agent, saying that they are in a race for “two million U.S.!” I don’t understand why people think that bit of information is a good motivator to have people help them. “I’m a total American douche bag now go out of your way to help me so I can be rich!!!” They get on their second plane but it is having mechanical problems. Abbie is “over it” and crying while Ryan is trying not to choke out their fellow travelers. And now they have to switch planes because the de-icer cannot be repaired. Or choked out. Burn! Ice burn!
Twin N’s are on the bus approaching the docks. Sometimes they sound like Pokemons. Wait- the bus is going in the water! It’s like a duck boat! AHH!!! I would be terrified! But that’s only because on our wedding day Berry’s mother drove her car into Lake Erie, I knew I should have rented a limo. Well, a disapproving mother-in-law and a sopping wet wedding dress didn’t stop our love! Back to the race, to complete the Fast Forward Twin N’s have to eat five Herring each in seven minutes before the bus gets back on land, or else they have to try all over again. Scrumptious.
“This bus is taking on water! And obnoxious screaming Sri Lankan sisters!”
Dong is going to try and do the Fast Forward. But they are too late because Twin N’s just finished choking down their fish. The teams cross paths. Twin N’s are on their way to the pit stop. They have to go to the house rumored to belong to Rembrandt’s mistress. It’s not even for sure her house? And it’s not even Rembrandt’s house? Running out of tourist attractions, AR?
The first time they’ve been almost quiet.
