  2. Trey & Lexi (7:49 pm)
  3. Natalie & Nadiya (9:15 pm)

Using a flag (Flag of the Netherlands) for reference, teams must figure out the flag is of the Netherlands and fly to its capital, Amsterdam. Upon arrival, teams must travel by train to Amsterdam Centraal railway station to find their next clue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to them after receiving their clue at Amsterdam Centraal railway station.

Teams would have to travel by taxi to the Van Gogh Café and board a marked amphibious bus called The Floating Dutchman. Once the bus enters the water, both team members have to eat five soused herring before the bus returns to land, a trip that takes seven minutes. If they run out of time, the bus would return to the Van Gogh Café and the team would have to wait 10 minutes for the next trip. If they finish their herring, they would win the Fast Forward. Natalie & Nadiya won the Fast Forward.

Teams must travel on foot to a nearby marked boat, and travel on the Amstel river where they have to seek out a pofertjesboot, a floating poffertjes stand, near the Magere Brug to receive their next clue.

Choice A: Back in Time
Teams would have to recreate the Rembrandt painting, The Night Watch with a group of costumed actors and props, including themselves. If the Rembrandt impersonator is satisfied with the recreation, he will award the teams their next clue.

Abbie & Ryan and Josh & Brent chose this task.

Choice B: Organ to Grind
Teams would have to find one of three Dutch street organs, one team member has to run the machine while the other asks for tips. Once they've earned 30, the organ grinder will give them their next clue.

Jaymes & James and Trey & Lexi chose this task.

Teams must travel on foot to Museum Geelvinck and search the gardens to find their next clue.

At Museum Geelvinck, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Jaymes & James used the first slot of the U-Turn on Abbie & Ryan. Trey & Lexi attempted used the second slot of the U-Turn on Jaymes & James, however Jaymes & James already passed the U-Turn before Trey & Lexi, thus having no effect on them.

Since Abbie & Ryan completed the Back in Time Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Organ to Grind Detour before continuing.

Teams must travel by bus or taxi, if no bus is available, to Ransdorp and search for the village's field to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to play a sport called fierljeppen by completing a single vault over a 12 feet wide irrigation ditch and landing on both feet on the marshy grass at the other side. Once the vaulting ditch is okay, they'll receive a pair of Dutch clogs as their next clue. The team member would have to vault back once they've received their clogs in order to continue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by taxi to the House of Rembrandt's Mistress to check in.

For coming in first place, Natalie & Nadiya each won $5000.
