Recap: 'The Amazing Race' 23, Episode 5 - 'We Need Boobs, Apparently That's What Does It'
Picking up where we left off, Tim overrides Marie and agrees to give Nicole & Travis the Express Pass in exchange for the Pit Stop location.
After Brandon & Adam, the rest of the teams arrive at the non-non-elimination Pit Stop of the Race. Jason & Amy take 2nd with Nicole & Travis take 3rd. Leo & Jamal, Tim & Marie and Tim & Danny at the Mat at the same time as Teams 4-6. Ally & Ashley finish 7th.
That leaves Nicky & Kim who get the good news that they are the last team to arrive, but they are still Racing, though this isn’t a non-elimination Leg.
It is 4am in Slovaer and teams must now take a 34-hour boat ride to Trondheim, leaving at 8:30pm, to catch a flight to their next destination, Gdansk, Poland.
On the boat, Tim & Marie secretly give Nicole & Travis the Express Pass.
Now in Gdansk, teams hop into taxis to go to Solidarity Square for their next clue. Leo & Jamal and Ally & Ashley are out of the airport first, but direct their taxi drivers to the general vicinity of the shipyard instead of the actual historic Square.
Tim & Danny are the first ones to get to the clue pointing them to the Golden Gate, entrance to old town Gdansk where they’ll find the next clue. While the rest of the teams get to Solidarity Square fine, Tim & Marie join Leo & Jamal and Ally & Ashley getting lost until they finally find a local who points them in the right direction.
Brandon & Adam’s taxi driver asks Jason & Amy’s driver for directions to the Golden Gate, but he happily refuses to tell them.
Meanwhile at the Golden Gate, teams find the Detour. In Pose, teams put on costumes and must copy the stance of the historic bronze statue of Neptune to earn 75 zloty from passersby. In Polka, teams must put on costumes to learn and perform a choreographed routine to the satisfaction of their instructor.
Tim & Danny choose Polka and discover one of them has to dress up as a woman. Danny is horribly against wearing a dress. Jason & Amy and Nicole & Travis join them while Nicky & Kim choose Pose.
The Baseball Wives get into position and the generous crowd allows them to finish quickly. Brandon & Adam choose Polka, but arrive at the statue of Neptune, see the girls and decide to try it. After a little while, thinking business is slow, they decide to switch to Polka.
At the Polka Detour, Tim & Danny and Nicole & Travis struggle which allows Jason & Amy to finish first. Danny’s frustration grows when they can’t get the dance down.
Tim & Marie go to the Pose Detour, see no one is there, and decide to use the Express Pass.
After the Detour, teams must head to the Medieval Harbor Crane, which is a building, where they will find the Double U-Turn. But the clue also states that teams must wear their costumes until the end of the Leg. For those who chose Pose, they must wear their beards, but leave their wigs.
Jason & Amy arrive first and decide not to U-Turn anyone. Tim & Marie find the board next and consider U-Turning Nicole & Travis, but are unsure if they’ve already passed, so they don’t use it. Neither do Nicky & Kim.
Tim & Danny arrive at the U-Turn board and don’t hesitate to use it on Leo & Jamal. Nicole & Travis applaud their decision.
Ally & Ashley finish the Detour with Leo & Jamal close behind, leaving Brandon & Adam the only team left at the Polka. Seeing they’ve been U-Turned, Leo & Jamal decide to U-Turn Brandon & Adam.
Teams must now head to the Falowiec Building, the longest apartment building in Poland, for their next clue, the Road Block.
In this Road Block, teams must search through 12 apartments on a provided list to find a traditional rose paczki. When they bite into the right flavored pastry, they will be handed their next clue.
Jason & Amy catch up to Tim & Marie at the Road Block and Marie and Amy decide to work together. Kim, Travis and Danny are close behind.
Travis catches up to Marie and Amy and instead of just letting him follow, they decide to team up by each going to one of the apartments. Travis manages to find the correct apartment first and he lets the girls know. The nice lady hands them their clue pointing them to the Pit Stop at Sopot Pier.
It ends up being a footrace at the pier with Tim & Marie officially taking 1st and a trip to Hawaii. Jason & Amy and Travis & Nicole end up 2nd and 3rd.
Nicky & Kim and Tim & Danny finish the Road Block and step on the Mat as Teams #4 and #5 respectively.
Leo & Jamal finish the Pose Detour and catch up to Ally & Ashley at the Road Block. Both teams stay ahead of Brandon & Adam and head to the Pit Stop to officially check-in as Team #6 and Team #7 respectively.
That leaves best friends Brandon & Adam in last and eliminated.
