Amazing Race fans ready? Let's GO!
Teams are on their way to Armenia. All teams are on the same flight. So, any one could win this leg ... theoretically. There is an Express Pass waiting for the winner of the leg. The teams are bunched waiting to purchase opera tickets. They're not going to see the opera -- their next clue is hidden in the theater.
Teams have to climb a gazillion steps next -- Cascade.
The Alpha Boys are leading the pack, followed by Cole and Sheri.
Detour: Thread - Make a rug or ... Bread - making traditional bread. Both tasks are difficult.
Tyler/Korey and Blair/Scott are the last ones out of the theater.
The Alpha Boys are the first on their way to the next clue. No real surprise there. They have to take a certain bus and pick up the clue along the roadside at a stand.
Roadblock -- Who's feeling drained? They have to do an oil change. Only two cars at a time can be on the ramp.
Alpha Boys are heading to the Pit Stop.
1. Kurt and Brodie - won Express Pass (to be used before the 9th leg)
2. Burnie and Ashley
3. Zach and Rachel
Sheri at first didn't have the tool to loosen the oil filter. Then she keeps trying to loosen it in the wrong direction. That might cost them the leg/race (dependent on whether it's a non-Philimination or not). We're probably due for a non-Philimination. But I could be wrong.
4. Dana and Matt
Scott helps Sheri!
5. Scott and Blair
6. Tyler and Korey
7. Sheri and Cole -- NON-PHILIMINATION!
They're immediately going to start on the next leg!
