Fran and Barry get to the Roadblock, and he takes it. "I'm going to only do feet!" he declares. She wonders why. "'Cause that'll be my system!" he says. Okay, that's…that's not a system, Barry. That is only looking in half of the holes. Completely idiotic. He does eventually find one, but there's no indication of how long it takes, which is one of the things I dislike about this kind of Roadblock. I wish there was a little indicator at the bottom, like, "Barry: 15th Set Of Gnomes Lifted. Strategy: Feet Only." Something like that. Otherwise, you have no way of telling who did how well, and without that information, the whole thing is a little pointless, not that it isn't anyway. Barry returns, and they open the Bavaria Film clue. Barry discusses himself and Fran in the third person during an interview again, and he so very badly needs to stop doing that. They assure us that now, they've "hit [their] stride."
Wanda and Desiree, on the other hand, have not hit their stride. They have hit…nothing. Actually, they have hit the same exit where they got off the Autobahn last time. Miserably, they pull over and stop, and Wanda hops out to tell Danielle and Dani -- who already know -- that they've wound up making a big circle. Wanda likens it to Groundhog Day, which seems fair enough. In a way, this makes Danielle and Dani look like victims, but you know, when you don't want to navigate for yourself, this is the kind of thing that can happen. I'm not sure I walked away from this with a very different view of following others, as much as just with the view that you had better make sure you follow exactly the right person.
Commercials. I often wonder whether there's really anywhere to go anymore in the technology of hair-care products. We're pretty much keeping our hair clean now, after all.
When we come back, Wanda and Desiree, followed by Danielle and Dani, are trying to turn around again. Wanda and Desiree are fighting, complete with "dammit, Desi" and "don't you 'dammit' me," and that's too bad, because early on, they really didn't fight. For their part, Danielle and Dani are also pretty stressed. Finally, both teams get going in the right direction.
Eric and Jeremy are arriving at Bavaria Film, where they pull a clue from the box. It's this week's Detour. Two tasks. They have pros. Also cons. Phil explains that the choices this time are Break It and Slap It. In Break It, they break stunt bottles over each other's heads until they get one with a special label on it that says "Prost," which Phil says is German for "cheers," and not for "cargo-shorts wearer." But they can only break one bottle every time a cuckoo clock goes off, so that's…a clearly random element inserted to make the task take longer. In Slap It, Phil claims that they'll have to "learn and correctly perform" an elaborate set of dance steps with a dance group. You will later notice that, in fact, Slap It does not require this at all, but go with it for the moment.
