ICYMI: The Amazing Race 34 Premiere Recap for 9/21/2022
Leg 1: Munich, Germany–Nymphenburg Palace
Teams: Luis and Michelle, Derek and Claire, Rex and Tim, Abby and Will, Quinton and Mattie, Molly and Emily , Linton and Sharik, Glenda and Lumumba, Marcus and Michael, Rich and Dom, Aubrey and David, Aashta and Nina.
The teams can do the challenges in any order they wish and they will still get the clues that will send them to the pit stop.
As an aside, T-Rex for Rex and Tim is the coolest team name ever and Molly and Emily’s story is by far the most incredible story we have ever heard on the show.
There will be NO non-elimination legs this season, so everyone will have to really bring their A-Game.
One clue has the teams rolling kegs of beer through an obstacle course at Luitpold Park.
Another one has them sawing a log at Biergarten Seehaus.
Yet another clue has them smashing a block of ice at Augustiner-Keller Biergarten.
All of these tasks will lead them to the clue to get to the pit stop. They can be done in any order, but all of them must be completed before they get that final clue.
Michael and Marcus do the Roll task first. They struggle on their first round and have to start over. They are able to pass it on the second try and move on to the next one.
Aubrey and David and Derek and Claire are also on this task. Derek and Claire pass on their first try, but Will and Abby need to start over.
Rich and Dom begin with the Saw Task. They are frustrated as they try and saw a log to get a clue. Things get even more frustrating when Linton and Sharik get there after them and finish the task before them.
Emily and Molly begin at the Smash task, which is the Roadblock. Luis and Michelle also do this task, which has them smashing ice until they get their clue.
