Route Markers[]

The order of departure from Swissôtel Krasnye Holmy are as follows:

  1. Jaymes & James (7:32 pm)
  2. Trey & Lexi (7:49 pm)
  3. Natalie & Nadiya (9:15 pm)
  4. Abbie & Ryan (5:28 am)
  5. Josh & Brent (8:11 am)

Teams are given a small, unidentified flag (Netherlands) and told to fly to the capital city of the country represented by the flag. Once they identified the Dutch flag, they must fly to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Upon arrival, teams must take a train to Amsterdam Centraal station, where they would find their next clue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after receiving their clue at Amsterdam Centraal station. Teams must make their way to the Van Gogh Café and board a marked amphibious bus called The Floating Dutchman. Once the bus enters the water, they would learn that they must eat five soused herring each 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 serving of herring in time, they would win the Fast Forward. Natalie & Nadiya won the Fast Forward.

Teams must make their way on foot to the Herenmarkt, then take a boatride on the Amstel river while looking for a pofertjesboot, a floating poffertjes stand, near the Magere Brug, where they would receive their next clue and a serving of poffertjes each.

Choice A: Back in Time
Teams must make their way on foot to De Duif, where they must recreate the Rembrandt painting, The Night Watch, with a group of costumed actors and props, including themselves. Once the Rembrandt impersonator is satisfied with the recreation, he would give teams their next clue.

Abbie & Ryan and Josh & Brent chose this task.

Choice B: Organ to Grind
Teams must make their way on foot to nearby canal bridges, where they would find one of three Dutch street organs. One team member must run the machine while the other asks for tips. Once they have earned 30, the organ grinder would give teams their next clue.

Jaymes & James and Trey & Lexi chose this task.

Teams must make their way on foot to Museum Geelvinck and search the gardens, where they would 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 to use 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 take a bus to Ransdorp and search for the village's field, where they would find their next clue. After 6 pm, teams may instead take a taxi.

"Who's ready to jump back in time and make a last ditch effort?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must play a sport called fierljeppen by completing a single vault over a 12-foot wide irrigation ditch and landing on both feet on the marshy grass at the other side. Once the vaulting ditch is cleared, they must retrieve a pair of Dutch clogs as their next clue, then vault back to the other side to their partner.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the House of Rembrandt's Mistress to check in.
For coming in first place, Natalie & Nadiya each won $5,000.
