Each week, as long as Brooke and Robbie E are in The Amazing Race competition, we’ll recap the newest episode, updating fans on where #TheWrestlers stand in the race.
This week, the teams fly to Morocco.
When they arrive, they must scour a vast square to find their next clue.
Their next challenge requires them to help a vendor to set up shop in a food cart. They must cart out the entire shop into the square and assemble it by hand.
The “carting it out” part proves to be a challenge in itself, as it’s extremely heavy and unwieldy.
When they finally get the pieces assembled, they set out the food. Brooke and Robbie lay out eggs, which Brooke fears are too warm to be unspoiled.
Brooke and Robbie finish the task in third place and head to the Bab Debbagh tannery, which houses a roadblock.
One member of each team must pull hair from goat hides and deliver three prepared bundles of hides by bike to a cobbler. When the shoemaker has enough leather to make slippers, they can head back to the tannery to grab their next clue.
Brooke takes the challenge, but she’s unprepared for the stench of the place.
She doesn’t mice words, claiming that the challenge is one of the grossest things she’s ever done in her life.
Brooke gets the hides prepared and loads them on a bike, but like her fellow racers, has trouble finding the cobbler’s shop.
All lost, they end up in a large group and find the shop at the same time. Then it becomes a race to make it back to the tannery, where they grab a clue and head to their next detour.
They’re given the choice between performing Moroccan Ganawa music and dance or transporting a tea set and serving mint tea in the traditional, precise fashion.
Brooke and Robbie choose the tea challenge and carry the heavy equipment through the streets.
Their first, second, third and fourth attempts are a failure, as Brooke doesn’t pour the tea high enough. It becomes clear that the teams need to watch the demonstration more closely to master every element of it.
They finally realize their problem and finish the challenge, but at this point are near the back of the pack in 6th place. When they are given the option to give a team a U-Turn, they choose not to.
Al Matjar carpet shop, which is the pit stop for this leg of the race.
Robbie and Brooke make it there in 5th place and live to race another day!
The Amazing Race airs Fridays at 8pm ET on CBS.
