I've Become the Archie Bunker of the Home is the second episode of The Amazing Race 12.
The order of departure from Connemara Heritage and History Centre are as follows:
Choice A: Hoist It
Teams must use a traditional rope-and-pulley system to hoist five pieces of furniture up a typical Amsterdam apartment. One member must tie the furniture and, upon approval from a tenant, use the pulley system to raise the furniture to the apartment, where the other member would bring it inside. Once all of the items have been loaded into the apartment, the head tenant would give them their next clue.
Azaria & Hendekea, Kate & Pat, Marianna & Julia, Nicolas & Donald, and Ron & Christina chose this task.
Choice B: Hunt It
Teams must make their way on foot several blocks to the Fietsflat bicycle parking lot and search through thousands of bicycles for two bikes tagged with a specific color designated in their clue. After finding their bikes, teams had to ride them five miles to Buikslotermeerplein Bus Station, where an attendant would give them their next clue.
Teams must take a bus from Buikslotermeerplein Bus Station to Ransdorp and find the marked field, where they would find their next clue.
"Which of you is the acrobat?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must play a sport called fierljeppen by completing a single vault over a 12-foot (3.7 m) wide irrigation ditch and landing on both feet on the marshy grass on the other side. Once the vaulting ditch is cleared, they may retrieve their next clue, then vault back to the other side to their partner.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
First Place • Eliminated • Last placer on a Non-Elimination Leg • Season winner • Season 2nd place • Season 3rd place • ► Used the Fast Forward• ⊂ Used the U-Turn • ⊃ Recipient of the U-Turn
- This episode's Roadblock would later return as a Switchback in "Fishy Kiss" and in "Chugga Chugga Choo Choo!".
- The episode title is said by Ron Hsu at the Pit Stop.
