I'm Gonna Take His Girl is the sixth episode of The Amazing Race 2.


A long train ride with the locals in Thailand takes its toll on the teams.

Teams must endure a 15-hour, third class train ride from Bangkok to Northern Thailand then drive into the mountains where they encounter elephants and engage in an intense river-rafting race that causes two teams to come to blows.[2]


Chris & Alex are first to depart from Ban Plai Pong Pang at 6:11 am. They open the clue and it states that teams must take a long boat to Anphawa and travel back to Bangkok and search for a flower vendor around Pak Khlong Talat using given street names to find their next clue. Chris & Alex are making their way to Bangkok by a minivan.

Mary & Peach depart second at 6:42 am and took a minivan as well. Tara & Wil depart third at 7:19 am followed by Blake & Paige at 7:22 am and Gary & Dave at 7:23. Those three teams took a separate minivan to Bangkok. Oswald & Danny depart last at 8:31 am. 

All teams arrive at Bangkok and began searching for the route markers. Chris & Alex found the route marker first and open the clue that states that teams have to take a train to Chiang Mai and find the Old Bridge in Ban Muang Kut to find the next clue. They took a taxi to the Train Station. Mary & Peach found the clue also. The rest of the teams found the route marker and head for the train station.

All teams are able to get the train at 3:00 pm and arrive at 5:50 am the next morning but all teams have to go to the third class train. All teams are taking there spare time shopping and eating. All teams depart at the 3pm train. They arrive at Chiang Mai and all teams try to find a taxi.
