It's Not Over Until the Phil Sings is the fourth episode of The Amazing Race 9.
Driving to the Roadblock in Germany, one team follows another who leads them in the wrong direction.
Computers crash at a foreign airport leaving several teams stranded without a flight and allowing a few lucky teams to surge ahead. Teams drive themselves to the Bavaria Film Studios in Munich, Germany and choose between two detour options. One option allows teams to relieve their frustrations and tensions from the stress of the race by bashing bottles over each others' heads.
Teams must choose a Mercedes-Benz vehicle and a driver who would take them on a ride on the test course known as the Wall of Death. After riding the high-speed course at over 170 kilometers per hour (110 miles per hour), they would receive their next clue.
Teams must drive themselves to Bad Tölz and find Ellbach Field, where they would find their next clue.
"Who's ready to reap their reward?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must search among 150 hats and feet scattered across Ellbach Field for one of eleven hidden Travelocity roaming gnomes containing their next clue. Teams must carry the gnome with them for the remainder of the leg.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Choice A: Break It
Teams must take turns breaking stunt bottles over each other's heads until they find prost, the German word for "cheers" written on the back of the label to receive their next clue. However, teams may only smash one bottle per cuckoo from a traditional German cuckoo clock.
Choice B: Slap It
Teams must learn and perform a traditional Schuhplattler folk dance. When the folk dance is performed properly, teams would receive their next clue.
