  • Quite a funny fairy-tale themed episode!

    This episode was obviously not as good as the last two, nor was it as good as most other episodes in Germany in the past, but it was still pretty awesome! Vanessa & Ralph's fight was extremely entertaining to watch, and Vanessa had some awesome one-liners, such as "Congratulations, you just made it no YouTube!"

    The Detour was just absolutely hilarious to watch. However, both options were far too easy, and they did not really present much of a challenge for teams.

    The Roadblock was also very easy. However, it was one of the most epic and awesome tasks ever involving the Gnome, so I enjoyed it! Aside from TAR18's chocolate gnomes, this was proably the 2nd best gnome task we have had!

    All the search for Neuschewenstein Castle was funny! Nary & Jami e and Rachel & Dafe going on the tour of the wrong castle was hilarious!!!

    Can't believe the ending! So thrilled that Nary & Jamie made it! But Kerri & Stacy were fun too. They will be missed for sure.moreless
