Okay, a brief recap of the previous and remaining teams is over. It's time for a commercial!
Teams will be flying 6,000 miles to Chicago. They'll get some rest, for sure! Once they land, they need to head to ChicagoLand Speedway. One team member gets behind the wheel, the other must change a tire in 40 seconds. The "race" has to finish in 48 seconds to move on.
Brooke is freaking out changing the tire. Why am I not surprised? Oh, geez. Scott got it first. They have to go downtown to a train station for their next clue.
They next have to solve three puzzles regarding the city's landmarks. They have to collect postcards at each site. Next it's off to City Hall to collect a clue from the city beekeeper.
Scott and Brooke are leading. (Grr.) They're off to Wrigley Field. They have to make Chicago style hot dogs, deliver them to people on a rooftop overlooking Wrigley Field. After the delivery, they have to go to the marquee entrance to Wrigley Field.
The last challenge of the race was posted on YouTube. Phil explains it better than I can, so I'm embedding it here.
Ack. Scott and Brooke are in the lead. Sigh. They have their clue to head to the Pit Stop. Joey/Tara are doing the scoreboard bit. London/Logan are far behind.
SCOTT AND BROOKE WIN THE AMAZING RACE.
I think I need a drink.
Tara and Joey are in second place.
