Ready? Let's GO!
Teams are flying to Long Island, NY. (Or, as the locals call it, Lawn Guyland.) They're heading to Randall's Island, all teams were on the same plane.
Justin quibbled with his cabbie and let the cab go. He and Diana are at the Roadblock first -- a firefighting training exercise. "Who wants to play with fire?" Logan/Chris are on their tails with Joey and Kelsey only a few minutes behind. The other two teams have their cabs waiting. Oops to Justin. Call Uber?
After dong a rescue, they have to put all the capitols of places they visited in order.
Justin is through first. They have to make their way to the site of the final race of the Triple Crown. Justin knows it's Belmont, so do I. The two waiting cabs won't take them. Now Kelsey and Joey are through, then Chris.
Uh-oh. Logan and Chris fight for Kelsey and Joey's cab. Now they're wandering around -- Logan and Chris, that is. They gave up the cab.
Both Justin/Diana and Chris/Logan are taking different buses back to Manhattan to snag cabs.
They will fly to the Hamptons in private helicopters to get the next clue. Joey and Kelsey are in the lead. Chris dumps his fireman pants and boots. Justin/Diana are in last place.
They're taking jetskis to a lobster boat for their next clue. They have to pull up seven lobster cages and put new ones in. Then it's a second memory test -- arranging flags of the countries visited in the proper order.
Joey and Kelsey are in the lead and know their flags order. Logan and Chris are stumped on the flags a bit. There's one extra flag to throw them off. Justin and Diana realize it, Kelsey and Joey figured it out. K/J off to the next clue first, with J/D right behind them. L/C stuck on the flags.
They have to assemble six Adirondack chairs and put them in order.
Joey and Kelsey WIN THE AMAZING RACE! They didn't take second place for a change!
Justin cries some more with his second place finish -- he knows letting that cab go cost them the million.
Logan and Chris are still arguing.
Next season, it's all social media "stars" racing.
No, Vincent and I weren't invited to partake.
