Episode Summary

The teams take off from their Pit Stop, a ranch in Mendoza, to Cabana La Guatana, 25 miles away. While several teams enjoy a nice lead following the four-hour penalties taken by teams the previous week, others scramble to catch up. The teams take part in a Roadblock that involves riding a horse to spear a ring in under 40 seconds and one team manages a last-second catch-up, to the shock and surprise of the top teams from the previous week. As these teams enjoy a nice lead, the others struggle to catch up and avoid being eliminated. The Detour for this episode is Shipwreck or Island --- search a seven mile radius for a Shipwreck or find a flag on an island. Generally, most teams complete this with ease, although some have problems with their boats and one is even surprised when they end up at the island when they were looking for the shipwreck. It's another close finish as the trailing teams race for the Pit Stop, hoping to avoid elimination.moreless

  • A fight for the finish!

    This episode had quite a great scenery and was more like one of the shows original episodes.

    I'd figure this episode may be a non-elimination leg considering that Season 6 had a non-elimination earlier than usual. This season is doing very well all around and it will be intersting as the season goes on to see which teams will stay. In this leg viewers got to see the beautiful sights of Argentina and the harbour, the teams are starting to hate each other more like how Ray was being mean to the older couple and putting them down so that they'd loose. Towards the end, Susan and Patrick, Ray and Deana and Meredith and Gretchen were hanging on like a thread.

    Susan and Patrick getting eliminated for me was not at all sad. I was happy, Patrick's motivation was terrible...

    Overall a classic episode with great moments.moreless
  • Ray makes Rob look like a boy scout in this show

    I think Ray was being a total jerk to Meredith & Gretchen

    And that though he wants to win, and that is fine by me

    He should had been a little more respectful and decent

    To the oldest couple in the race as he makes Rob

    Whom I can't stand at all, look like a boy scout in this show by bad-mouthing the elderly couple.
