On this episode, teams had to take a ferry to Tallinn, Estonia, which only runs once a day and made them wait up to 12 hours at the port in order to be bunched up on the thing after 5 pm, even though they left the pit stop in the wee hours of the morning.
Once in Tallinn, they had to find the secret lair of the blackheads. No, it wasn't a bunch of pimply faced teenagers, it was a group of merchants. It was in the lair that they had the roadblock - to find a candle-a-bra with a marked room number. Once they found the room they were given a secret message. They could view the message with the light and heat from the candle-a-bra. Before doing that task, Gary and Matt had to take a 5 minute sauna.
Once they were done, they had to get themselves to Pikk Hermann Tower for the next clue. That clue sent them to the detour - serve - play mud volleyball with local teams - or - sling - shoot vegetables at a moose target until a table of cabbage collapses.
Good job on the lists last week. It's nice to see so many participate. Don't forget to check out last week's rankings , from our fabulous stat guy, kidflash.
On to the list!
Rank. Names (last week's rank)
1. Meghan/Cheyne (3) - First by default. They are just sticking to their own race. Still no drama. Still coming in first. *yawn*
2. Herbert/Nathaniel (1) - I don't think we saw the entire incident at the bog. How could Dan have thrown an elbow when Big was nowhere near him? What we did see was Flight slipping and taking Sam out with him. That's all. ...and the incident with the cab? From what I saw, that cab pulled up while the other cabbie was still making the phone call and Sam/Dan were still talking to him. Still, these two guys are mostly having fun and I love their spirit.
3. Sam/Dan (4) - Dan is very hard to take. He may just be more shrew like than Ericka. Sam I like.
4. Brian/Ericka (5) - Ericka like to play dirty, except when it involves actual dirt. Did you hear her shriek when the cabbage fell? Oh my ears.
Philiminated: Gary/Matt (2) - I think they are my favorite parent/ child team of all time. They worked so well together, never had tantrums with each other, always kept cool heads during tasks and never gave up. I will miss them.
PSA: Please don't feed the trolls. It makes things all messy around here. Thanks.
