The Amazing Race Wiki

Mow'em Down, Like Grass is the eighth episode of The Amazing Race 7.


As the game becomes more intense and every second counts, the teams split off into two separate groups.

The pressures of the Race continue to weigh heavy on one team when even the simplest of tasks, such as choosing a mode of transportation, causes tempers to flare. Meanwhile, one team shares an affectionate moment with the locals as they are cheered on by a supportive crowd.[2]
