The Amazing Race Recap for 11/18/2020: Double Legs

Tonight’s episode of CBS’s The Amazing Race kicks off with the remaining teams heading from Paris to Berlin via train. The first clue of the night is at the East Side Gallery, which is part of the Berlin Wall. Everyone is on the same train, putting them on an even playing field. However, once they arrive, they all get into different taxis, so it becomes anyone’s game.



Will and James are in the lead and are the first to find the clue. They must head to a mini disco called

Teledisko via Trabant. However, Gary and DeAngelo manage to arrive first. Once they are there, they must dance until the lights come back on and collect a picture. One by one, the teams arrive, but Kaylynn and Haley seem to be struggling and falling behind again. Eswar and Aparna and Leo and Alana also get lost on their way to the disco.


DeAngelo and Gary finish the first task and get their next clue. Now they must head to Andel’s Hotel, where they must rappel across and then do a puzzle. They also have the chance to use the Yield, but they decline.



Hung and Chee and Maddison and Riley are not too far behind, but all three teams end up missing the unscrambling puzzle. DeAngelo and Chee agree to share the answer with each other, depending on which person finishes first. Riley and Maddison decide to wait for Will and James, even though Chee gave them the answer as well.
