Trey & Lexi find and board a boat, and Jaymes & James disembark from theirs elsewhere. Jaymes has already gone to work as soon as he's on dry land, telling some bystanders, "Hello! We're going to go play some music, you want to come tip us?" Never too soon to build an audience, I suppose. They quickly get to a single spot on the street where they can see all three organs on all three bridges -- which means they're pretty close together -- and Jaymes decides to go with the one that looks like it's in the busiest spot. Can't argue with that. Jaymes has James turn the crank while he starts working for tips, haranguing passersby for Euros. That seems to be the correct division of labor given what a motormouth Jaymes is. He does have a couple before too long, but his percentage of hits is not very high. Not sure whether that's a function of the local audience or the fact that he's approaching absolutely everyone.
Trey & Lexi are brought to the pastry boat, and while enjoying their treats, they agree to do the organ grinder task as well. They also agree that the Chippendales had better U-Turn Abbie & Ryan like they all planned. "I would be so mad at them if they didn't," Lexi says. I can't even imagine what an angry Lexi would look like. Do you think she would stop smiling?
Jaymes is still shaking down Dutch folks, and they're up to 14 Euros when the crowd suddenly dies down, probably with the end of the lunch rush. So they take off their shirts and throw on their Chippendale cuffs and collars to try to attract a little more attention. I'm a little disappointed to see that these operate with Velcro. Seems a little less classy somehow, not to mention that they don't work as well with cargo shorts. Still, they're soon gaining not only attention but "donations." And then a grandmother with two tots in a stroller hands Jaymes ten Euro, and just like that they're done, in second place. Their next clue is another Route Info, as they're told to go to Museum Geelvinck, where they'll have to search the lovely courtyard garden for their next clue. In fact, it's so nice back there I wouldn't be surprised if someone decides to bag the race and hang out for a while.
Abbie & Ryan seem to have barely arrived at the Amsterdam airport when Josh & Brent's plane lands as well. The two teams actually run into each other inside the terminal. "They're the only racers we've seen on the last three or four legs," Josh interviews, which is one of the saddest things I've heard this whole season. Unless they decide to go back to that stupid "racing together" thing, in which case that will be one of the saddest things I've heard this whole season.
