How's That Face Feel? is the eighth episode of The Amazing Race: Family Edition.
THE AMAZING RACE celebrates its 100th episode. Three consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality/Competition Program, over 300,000 miles traveled, 88 Teams and nearly 50 countries visited have made the first 100 episodes of Race simply "Amazing."
During this milestone episode, one family member amuses the rest of the family with a face plant into the water after plunging down a 60 ft. ramp. In addition, teams are shocked to receive a clue from an unlikely messenger, an 1,100-pound grizzly bear. Meanwhile, one racer's motor mouth drives fellow teammates crazy.
The order of departure from Lake Powell are as follows:
Teams must drive themselves to Monument Valley. Once there, teams must find John Ford's Point, where they would find their next clue.
Teams must choose two members to take a helicopter ride to Elephant Butte to retrieve their clue.
Choice A: Ride Down
Teams must choose bikes and ride a marked 6-mile course down the mountain, then through Bull Canyon to find their next clue.
Only the Weaver Family chose this task.
The Bransen, Godlewski, and Linz Families chose this task.
Choice B: Drop Down
Teams would have to complete a 270 ft two-stage rappel down the rock formations of Bull Canyon. Once all team members were safely on the ground, teams must follow the marked path to retrieve their next clue.
Teams must drive themselves to Green River State Park, where they would spend the night. Their departure time the following morning would depend on the order they arrive. The first team to arrive at the park would depart at 7 am, with each succeeding team departing every 15 minutes thereafter.
"Who's ready to jump into the unknown?"
