They Should Probably Have Some Counseling is the sixth episode of The Amazing Race 6.


Teams travel by all different modes of transportation from Berlin to Budapest.

While riding in a taxi in Berlin, a team member irritates the driver to the point of getting the pair kicked out of the taxi. Once in Hungary, teams are required to drive cars like none they've ever seen before. And, during a run-in with the law, one racer pours on the charm to miraculously turn the situation around to their benefit, while a fellow teammate looks on in amazement.[2]

Teams must make their way to the Berlin Olympic Stadium, find a sign-up sheet outside, and sign up for the order that they would perform the next task.

"Who's ready to be stretched to the limit?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would be strapped into a device known as a hot rocket bungee, which would launch them directly from the ground 200 feet into the air. After the ride, teams would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must fly to Budapest, Hungary. Upon arrival, teams must take a marked Trabant 601 car and drive themselves to Eger, where they will find their clue on the Eger Castle grounds.

Choice A: Catapult Crash
Teams must use a catapult to hurl a watermelon 150 feet into a wooden target to retrieve the clue hidden within.

None of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Cannonball Run
Teams must push a cannon up a hill to Eger Castle's courtyard, then carry and stack 55 4-pound cannonballs into a pyramid next to the cannon to receive their next clue.

All teams chose this task.

Teams must take a train back to Budapest where they will find their next clue on one of the computers at Net Klub Internet Kafé.
