As the show airs here, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party will be in the comments area. Come join us there!
The teams are flying off to Germany where they will end up being part of Oktoberfest. All teams are on the same 17-hour flight. In native garb, they have to climb to the top of a tower, find their cars and head off. One team switched cars and left behind a fanny pack ... probably containing the important stuff. It's Tyler's fanny pack -- Jackie and Jeff find it. For doing so well before, they're quibbling now!
Their destination inside what looks like an old factory is actually a winter wonderland. They have to drive their product placement cars backwards using the rear view camera through it.
This must be the Quibble and Bicker Episode.
Tyler and Laura get through the backwards snow course first, but now have to wait for the other car to show up with his fanny pack.
Kurt and Bergen decide to give up the car, take a taxi and the penalty. They won't be able to do that because they need the car for the challenge.
Now Aly and Steve are leading the pack, rowing away.
Detour - Stein or Stack. Deliver many steins of bear without spilling. Stack is stacking crates.
Kurt and Bergen are allowed a two hour penalty.
Roadblock has them singing a song. Sing it wrong and get drenched.
Jeff and Jackie tried to lie about the fanny pack. Didn't work.
Aly and Steve are the first heading to the Pit Stop. Hayley is getting more and more annoying. Not only does she have a Bernadette voice (from The Big Bang Theory), but she won't stop nitpicking at Blair. Laura referred to her as the Wicked Witch of the West.
Pit Stop --
1. Aly and Steve -- each won a 2015 Ford Focus (product placement vehicle)
2. Matt and Ashley
3. Jeff and Jackie
4. Jelani and Jenny
5. Hayley and Blair
6. Laura and Tyler
7. Mike and Rochelle
Bergen and Kurt are totally lost trying to take the train. Phil has to go find them at the train station. They are Philiminated. And, it's all Kurt's fault. Poor Bergen. He seems to be a decent guy who was trying to be in it to win it. Kurt wanted love. Blech on him.
