There was no Fast Forward or Yield in this episode, making it the second episode in a row that had neither.
Freddy and Kendra received a thirty minute time penalty that dropped them from sixth to eighth. A timer was shown on screen, tracking their remaining time until Phil would check them in at the Pit Stop. They had broken a race rule by taking a second clue from a cluebox after losing one. Race rules require that a team only take one clue. Rules also specify that only one of any of the following information cards may be taken: Yield, Detour, Roadblock.
Balance Sheet: Kris and Jon move up from second to first. Jonathan and Victoria move up from fifth to second. Gus and Hera move up from tenth to third. Hayden and Aaron move down from first to fourth. Lori and Bolo move up from sixth to fifth. Adam and Rebecca move up from seventh to sixth. Don and Mary Jean move up from ninth to seventh. Freddy and Kendra move down from fourth to eighth. Lena and Kristy move down from third to ninth. Meredith and Maria move down from eighth to last and are eliminated.
Roadblock: In previous seasons, any team could choose which member could perform the Roadblock and there were no restrictions to how many times that person could do it. Now, no one can do more than a maximum of six Roadblocks throughout the race. The Roadblock on this leg began with the statement "Who's ready to perform an Olympian Feat?" On this Roadblock, team members had to climb to the top of the highest ski jump in Scandinavia and from there they had to ride a zip line down to the bottom to retrieve their next clue.
This is a list of the people who completed this Roadblock:
Jon, Adam, Bolo, Maria, Kristy, Hera, Kendra, Don, Jonathan and Aaron
The task with a Viking boat that teams featured was the only task ever on The Amazing Race that required interteam cooperation, up to that point the programs' run. Jon and Kris, Lori and Bolo, Hayden and Aaron, Adam and Rebecca, and Lena and Kristy were in one boat while Jnathon and Victoria, Gus and Hera, Don and Mary Jean, Freddy and Kendra and Maria and Meredith were in another one. In the tenth season, a feature that required two teams to work together called the Intersection was added.
Freddy/Kendra, Adam/Rebecca, Hayden/Aaron, Lori/Bolo, and Lena/Kristy chose "Endurance", where they had to roller-ski down a 1¾ mile course.
Gus/Hera, Jonathan/Victoria, Don/Mary Jean, Meredith/Maria, and Kris/Jon chose "Accuracy", where they had to complete a trio of traditional Viking games.
Freddy/Kendra quit Endurance to complete Accuracy.
Rebecca/Adam switched to Accuracy, but then quit that and returned to complete Endurance.
Maria: (after getting eliminated) Being on The Amazing Race brought our friendship closer together.
Adam: (at the Roadblock) Tell my mum I love her please.
Mary Jean: (regarding the Roadblock) Don we made an agreement that I would do it.
Don: The climb up there was a killer.
Jonathan: (regarding Victoria, in an interview segment) Her worst quality is that she's a panicker.
Kristy: (at the Roadblock) I'm definitely afraid of heights, like I don't do stuff like this.
Jonathan: Stop whining to me.
Victoria: I'm not whining.
Jon: (in an interview segment) The fact that Kris and I don't argue much is definitely to our advantage.
Jonathan (regarding Victoria) I'm so proud of myself. You know what she had no confidence in me, you owe me an apology.
Victoria: I'm sorry.
Jonathan: No, you need to look inside yourself and do something about it.
Victoria: I'm sorry!
Rebecca: (to Adam) Our relationship is so bad and is going to be so over really soon I think.
Adam: Would you like me to go and jump on the tracks? I'm going to jump on the tracks.
Kristy: We really like Victoria, but Jonathan is pretty mean to her so we really don't like him. He's really aggressive and harsh.
Rebecca: (regarding Adam) You are such a drama king!
Kristy: Would you volunteer if we were big, hairy men?
Bolo: (on Lori's roller-skiing) I was trying not to laugh, and I didn't, but it was hilarious watching her bounce across the concrete.
Don: Where we made the great mistake was having Mary Jean do the bow and arrow.
Mary Jean: Who made the mistake?
Don I did.
Mary Jean: Thank you.
Mary Jean: (on the Roadblock) We had a total agreement that I would do things involving heights because you don't need strength. We get here and he says, "I can't let you do this." I was pissed.
Mary Jean: I love you and I love every moment that we've been doing and I apologize.
Phil: Gus and Hera, you are Team #3.
Gus: That's good.
Phil: That's real good.
Lori: Accuracy? But with accuracy, you have to be accurate.
Adam: Seriously, Rebecca. I don't want you to not love me.
Adam: If you ever tell me to take glasses off again, I'm never going to talk to you in the rest of my life.
Meredith: (whiny, regarding Jonathan) I'm not his wife. He doesn't need to scream at me.
Jonathan: Yeahhhh! We are number 1!
Victoria: No, we're not.
Jonathan: You are a whiner and a complainer and we are number 1!
Victoria: We are not number 1. There are other teams here.
Gus: Who's ready to perform an Olympian feat? You. Go ahead.
Maria: I can't. I can't. I can't do it.
Meredith: (very whiny and squeaky) We just keep going the wrong way!
Mary Jean: Don thinks he's in charge of everything. ... ... But I let him know right away that's not the way it is.
Bolo: I want to win this million dollars for Lori because she deserves every bit of it.
Hayden: Don't yell at me. You're telling me to calm down and you need to calm down.
