Pretty Fly for a Food Scientist is the seventh episode of The Amazing Race 25.
The order of departure from Casbah d'If are as follows:
Teams must fly to Palermo, Italy. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to Teatro di Verdura, where they would find six tambourines marked with departure times, two each at 6:30 am, 6:40 am, and 6:50 am. In the morning, teams would receive their next clue.
Teams must make their way to Villa Costanza, where they would find their next clue.
"Who wants to put their foot to the Florio?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must drive a go-kart along part of the old route of the Targa Florio auto race around Mount Pellegrino. If they can complete the course within 4 minutes and 7 seconds, they would receive their next clue from racing legend Nino Vaccarella. If not, they would have to follow the pace car back to the starting line and try again, with a 20 minute wait. Once they have successfully completed the course within the allotted time, they would be driven back down the mountain by a retired race car driver to Antico Stabilimento Balneare, where their partner would be waiting.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Choice A: Painters
Teams must make their way to the Tonnara Florio, where they must restore a fresco while lying on their backs on a high scaffolding, as Michelangelo allegedly did when painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Once the artist is satisfied with their work, teams would receive their next clue. Only four workstations are available at a time.
Amy & Maya and Brooke & Robbie chose this task.
Choice B: Posers
Teams must make their way to the Teatro Politeama Garibaldi, where they would watch a series of opera performers. They would then head backstage and match the performers to their costumes, characters, and plays in the order the performers stood on stage by writing down the answers in a playbook. Once the costumista judged their playbook correct, teams would receive their next clue.
