We catch up with Team Austin already 29 Euros into the organ grinding task, to Lexi's even-greater-than-usual excitement. They soon finish, very noisily. I seriously think Lexi was louder than the organ.
Team Grabbie and the goat farmers are rolling on the river in tandem, each talking about how happy they are to be with the other team, despite how Ryan was talking just this morning about sending Josh & Brent to the slaughter. Now if another team will just lose their passports they'll be golden.
Jaymes & James arrive at the mat, and Phil tells them they're team number two. "Today, you played the game," Phil says, seeming impressed. Jaymes says that he thinks Abbie & Ryan are the strongest team. "I just hope that we don't lose a friend." Just then the clock tower behind him tolls six o'clock, and as the camera pans up, he says, "Sign from God." Phil gives that a doubtful eyebrow, and Jaymes says he already sent a card home saying they were coming back with the million dollars. "So I gotta be a man of my word and I'm sorry, but my parents are more important to me than Abbie & Ryan." Yeah, so are everybody's parents. He gets choked up as he says he dreams about coming home with the check and saying he's got it. Only a few more legs for him and his messiah complex to go.
Back in Amsterdam, it's now raining on the river, and Ryan says, "once again our day has gone bad to worse." He doesn't know the half of it yet. They get their pastries just ahead of the Beekmans and decide to "paint." On the boat behind them, Brent tells Josh he's a good artist so they should do that one, but Josh suggests doing whatever Team Grabbie decides to do. So it'll be win-win, then. But on the boat ahead, Abbie reads to Ryan from their brand-new clue, "Caution: U-Turn ahead." In an interview, Ryan says they can hope for a Double U-Turn. "Those top three teams are not going to U-Turn each other, so there should be U-Turn available. We could use it on the Beekmans." Yeah, except that the top three teams have thought of that already, and two of them hate your ass.
Trey & Lexi get to the U-Turn, and are relieved to see that Jaymes & James U-Turned Abbie & Ryan just like they were supposed to. So they U-Turn the Chippendales, effectively flushing the other half of the U-Turn down the toilet. "Abbie & Ryan are gonna be so pissed," Trey says as they run down the street to the next stop. Lexi just cackles as Trey adds, "And that puts smiles on our faces." I'm just amazed that in one season we saw both the worst use ever of a double U-Turn and the best.
