From Salzburg, Austria, teams have to board a train to the Feldkirch, Austria, and then hop in a cap to the border crossing at Schaanwald, Liechtenstein, a gorgeous and itty-bitty country only one-fifth the size of New York City. Upon leaving, teams find out there will be a double U-turn in the leg—cue scary music. Teams start thinking strategy when they find out about the double U-turn. Pink notes that her team's annoying fighting has to stop. "This kind of interaction easily could be fatal for us." The cowboys say they feel like they have targets on their backs. "I don’t know if we're outcasts, but there sure hasn’t been anybody wanting to just buddy up with us," he says.
When the train arrives, the BFFs snag a cab and tell their driver to go fast, and he replies, "You are no terrorists?" Zev answers, "Don’t worry, we're good American people." Meanwhile, Ms. Kentucky and her dad's cabbie ends up putting them in last place because he was so slow and had to use the GPS system.
At the border crossing, the teams hit a roadblock. Using a motorized bike, a map and an odometer, racers must measure the length of Liechtenstein, a 22-kilometer ride and tell it to six-time Olympic ski racer Marco Buchel. If the measurement is wrong, they have to restart the entire ride; if it's right, they advance to Gutenberg Castle.
At the roadblock, Ms. Kentucky and her pops hit their speed bump. They have to break out the math skills to find the right proportions of gas and oil to power the motorized bike. Meanwhile all of the bikers are having problems with directions, which throws off the kilometer count. Sister Jen loses her map. Luckily, she runs into a lost Justin and helps him, and herself, by deciphering his map an the two join forces. Jet and dad buddy up, but the cowboy leaves him when dad gets trapped behind a slow bus in the middle of a town.
But BFF Justin gets the right kilometer number first, followed by Jen. Cowboy Jet gets there, but he has the wrong number, and the poor guy has to do the ride all over again. While riding his bike, Flight Time spots the BFFs and sisters—both of whom are their allies—and they tell him the answer, and he in turn tells Ms. Kentucky's dad. "We felt like we were ahead of enough teams at that point that we didn’t think that it would really hurt us," Justin says later.
From the castle, teams must hop on a bus to a Zermatt, Switzerland, where they hit a detour. "I wanna put some cowboys on ice today," Kent says as he boards the bus.
In this detour, racers can choose cheese or wheeze. For cheese, teams must eat a whole pot of cheese fondue to get their next clue. For wheeze, they must deliver 20 pieces of luggage from the train station to at least five different hotels, collecting a tag for each. The sisters choose cheese, but Kisha's stomach starts to hurt as they start eating the thick, rich cheese sauce, so they quickly switch to wheeze.
The BFFs go for cheese, and Justin waivers, but they stick with it. "I'm not very fondue of this fondue," Zev jokes, as the two burp like crazy. "I can't even look at this stuff," Justin says. "I think I need to puke." He did. But Zev keeps him motivated and helps him power through post-vomit.
Pink and black attack go for wheeze, but they start arguing again. "Can you stop whining like a girl?” pink says. "You hit my ankle!" he yells.
After the detour, teams must go to the Inderbinen Brunnen, where the dreaded double U-turn awaits. The BFFs arrive first and decide not to do it, same with the sisters. Both head straight to the pit stop, Moos Restaurant.
The BFFs win first place. "We're in it for the fondue of it." The sisters snatch No. 2 and the pink and black attack get third, despite their old-married-couple fighting.
First the Globetrotters misread two tags, which cost them a bit of time. Then they realize they lost two of their luggage slips, so they have to go back and deliver two more pieces, making them lag behind with the cowboys. The ballers are forced to pull a U-turn on the cowboys, since they are neck-in-neck. "We don’t want to do it, but it’s either us or them. They are actually one of my favorite teams ever," the Globetrotters say.
The U-turned cowboys get eliminated. "I know they hit the nail on the head when they call this race 'amazing,'" Cord says. I get to go with my brother, my best friend, it’s memories that I’ll never forget." Jet adds, "We went some new places this time and got to see it with my brother. Nobody else I'd rather be traveling around the country with…maybe my wife."
In next week's episode, teams have to battle the cold of the Matterhorn. Kent does something to get gentle giant Big Easy all angry.
