Lookin' Like a Blue-Haired Lady on a Sunday Drive is the tenth episode of The Amazing Race 10.
Will one long-standing alliance continue to stay strong or will teams finally break out on their own to improve their standing?
Teams are feeling the pressure to perform their best as there is little room for error at this stage of the Race. At the Virtual Pit Stop, all teams must repel face-first down a 236 foot high tower. One team is put to the ultimate test as they face their extreme fear of heights in order to complete the challenge and continue Racing. Two teams race head-to-head the entire leg of the Race and form an uneasy partnership. Frustration continues to mount as one team's bad luck with automobiles continues.
Teams must drive themselves to Oster and find the Oster Tank School to find their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to drive a Soviet T-64 Tank through a moderately difficult obstacle course, featuring large puddles of muddy water and simulated explosions. Once they finished the course, they would receive their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must drive themselves back to Kiev and find a marked apartment complex. At the complex, they must find Apartment 33 to receive their next clue.
Choice A: Make The Music
Teams must travel 3 miles to Dance & Groove, a hip hop/dance club in Kiev's underground rap movement, and have to perform a rap song incorporating the names of all of the nations visited so far on the Race. The judge would approve their show and give them their next clue.
Choice B: Find The Music
Teams must travel 2.5 miles to the Ukrainian National Music Academy. Once there, they had to search through thousands of pieces of sheet music for Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Concert Fantasia for Piano and Orchestra. When they have the correct music, they need to search 120 practice rooms for one of six pianists to perform the piece for them. Once the pianist has completed the piece, they would get their next clue.
