Episode Summary

EDIT
The six remaining teams continue from their Pit Stop in Budapest, Hungary, where they receive a clue telling them to find the area's largest wine cast. Once they find that, they must travel to the city of Ajaccio on the island of Corsica. some teams experience flight difficulties, but all teams manage to make the same flight in the end. Once in Corsica the teams had to find the room where Napoleon was born. When they arrive teams discovered that it didn't open until the next morning so they slept on the beach. After it opens, teams discover the second of only two Fast Forwards on the race. In order to retrieve the Fast Forward award, both team members must walk the ocean floor wearing special diving suits to find the clue hidden in a trap underneath the water. Two teams try the Fast Forward, with one eventually claiming it and scoring a special plane ride.
The remaining teams take marked cars and find a Detour: Climb Up or Fly Behind. Most teams choose Climb Up, which involves complicated climbing and rappelling, but one chooses Fly Behind, which involves searching a large water mass for a buoy with a clue. Although this option seems hopelessly awful at first, it turns out to offer an advantage when the team choosing it finds themselves ahead of all the teams who chose Climb Up. After completing the Detour, some teams experienced navigating problems causing some bickering between the team members.
Later, a Roadblock involving grape-stomping to make wine causes the same team to stumble. Some team members struggled with this task but eventually completed it.
In the end, it becomes a close foot race between two teams in order to avoid elimination but one team just couldn't make it in fast enough and feared the worst. However, they are given a surprise when they are informed that this was the second of several non-elimination legs so they're not out. They have now been stripped of all their money.moreless
