Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from Kurfürstendamm are as follows:

  1. Max & Katie (2:02 am)
  2. Joey & Meghan (2:49 am)
  3. Caroline & Jennifer (3:44 am)
  4. Bates & Anthony (4:20 am)
  5. Mona & Beth (4:21 am)

Teams must fly to Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom. Upon arrival, teams must drive themselves to the Gosford House, where they would find their next clue.

"Who has the deep lungs and strong legs of a Royal Scot?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must dress in the uniform of the Royal Scots regiment and learn to continuously play a drone on a set of bagpipes while marching with the Royal Scots pipers in Gosford House's Marble Room for two minutes. When the bagpipes instructor is pleased with their performance, they would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Craigmillar Castle. Once there, they must search the fireplaces inside the castle to find their next clue.

At Craigmillar Castle, Mona & Beth would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. Mona & Beth must make their way to the Sheep Heid Inn, where they must play a game of skittles, a traditional British form of ten-pin bowling. They must alternate taking shouts until either of them manage to score a "floorer", a strike, upon which they would be allowed to continue.

Choice A: Tasty Puddin'
Teams must make their way to the Sheep Heid Inn in Duddingston, where they must prepare haggis with oatmeal and ox intestine, in the presence of a Robert Burns impersonator who recited Burns' poem "Address to a Haggis". Once they have each prepared four portions of haggis and have a taste of one, they would receive the next clue.

Caroline & Jennifer, Joey & Meghan, Max & Katie, and Mona & Beth chose this task.


Choice B: Whiskey Rollin'
Teams must roll eight barrels of Scotch whisky up a slope, delivering them to a party. Once they have delivered all eight barrels, a Scottish country dancer would give them their next clue.

Only Bates & Anthony chose this task.

Teams must make their way on foot to Duddingston Kirk, where they would find their next clue.

At Duddingston Kirk, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Bates & Anthony used the first slot of the U-Turn on Joey & Meghan. Max & Katie used the second slot of the U-Turn on Mona & Beth.

Since Joey & Meghan completed the Tasty Puddin' Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Whiskey Rollin' Detour before continuing.

Since Mona & Beth completed the Tasty Puddin' Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Whiskey Rollin' Detour before continuing.

Teams must drive themselves to Niddry Street South to check in.
For coming in first place, Max & Katie each won $10,000.
