Not a Well-Rounded Athlete is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 21.


Route Markers

The order of departure from the House of Rembrandt's Mistress are as follows:

  1. Natalie & Nadiya (2:55 am)
  2. Jaymes & James (5:57 am)
  3. Trey & Lexi (6:38 am)
  4. Josh & Brent (9:38 am)

Teams must fly to Barcelona, Spain. Upon arrival, teams must travel by ferry to Palma on the island of Mallorca, where they must find the Palma Cathedral and search among a small troupe of actors dressed up as devils and demons participating in a performance for La Nit del Foc for one who is holding their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to Centro de Alto Rendimiento to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to return 20 tennis balls fired by an automatic server within the bounds of a clay court in order to receive their next clue. If the machine runs out of tennis balls, they would have to start the task over, with their prior count reset.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to the Coves de Campanet and follow the music into the cave to find two guitarists who'll hand them their next clue.

Choice A: Spin It
Teams would have to don safety gear and then replace two blades on a 400-year-old Mallorcan windmill. Once a mechanic checks their work, they'll receive their next clue from a pair of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza impersonators.

Jaymes & James, Josh & Brent, and Natalie & Nadiya chose this task.

Choice B: Bull It
Teams would have to wear a special two-person bull outfit, with the person in front unable to see where they are going. The team member in back would verbally guide their partner in the front to circle eight matadors and then strike a target of a ninth to launch a final dummy matador. The entire course has to be completed within two minutes for the team to get their next clue.

Only Trey & Lexi chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Bellver Castle to check in.

For coming in first place, Trey & Lexi won a trip for two to the Riviera Maya, provided by Travelocity.

For coming in last place, Natalie & Nadiya will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
