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 head to Sicily and the Teatro di Verdura. Brooke and Robbie are the fifth team to depart.
When they arrive, the teams grab tambourines that symbolize their place in line and wait until morning to get their next clue.
Brooke and Robbie are with the second group, getting their clue at 6:40 am. The first big challenge appears to be getting a taxi, as there are none to be found.
The rest of the teams manage to find cabs, leaving Brooke and Robbie behind. The finally find one 40 minutes later, putting them far behind the pack.
When they eventually arrive at their destination, they find the leg’s roadblock. One team member must ride down a famed race course in a go kart. They’ll receive their next clue when they complete the course in under 4 minutes and 7 seconds.
Brooke takes the wheel. She and Robbie have made up a good amount of time, as some of their competition failed to pass the test in the first round and have to race again. They end up in a four-way race.
Brooke manages to fly past the rest of them and finish first, completing the challenge with 19 seconds to spare.
The teams ride back down the course in vintage Italian race cars, heading towards the leg’s detour. Unfortunately for Brooke, her ride isn’t exactly racing.
For the detours, teams can choose between recreating a painting on a ceiling while lying on a scaffold or observing opera singers and identifying their order by their costumes and the song they performed.
As only four teams can attempt the painting challenge, Brooke and Robbie choose the opera to avoid getting kicked out if they arrive at the other one too late.
They end up alongside the Sweet Scientists, and after both teams fail their first attempt, they decide to work together.
They knock out the challenge quickly and move on towards the leg’s pit stop.
Brooke and Robbie arrive at the pit stop, Villa Niscemi, in 4th place. This puts them ahead of two teams. Though, as this was a non-elimination leg, no team will be eliminated.
Still, Brooke and Robbie live to race another day!
The Amazing Race airs Fridays at 8pm ET on CBS.
