“The Amazing Race” finds itself in France on the fourth and fifth episodes of season 30 that airs on Jan. 24. As per the official description that accompanies the preview trailer video (watch above), the two episodes that will air back-to back are titled “Gotta Put Your Sole Into It.”
CBS teases that “one team tries to stay on track after failing to read their clue” as the nine teams still in contention “face off against one another in the second head-to-head competition of the season.” Do you have a favorite pairing that you are rooting for to win the million dollar grand prize? Be sure to vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.
In episode three, Yale grads Henry Zhang & Evan Lynyak staged a staggering comeback to finish in first after almost being eliminated in episode two. They made it to the mat just ahead of Indy racers Alexander Rossi and Conor Daly. For their efforts, host Phil Keoghan told them that they had won a trip for two to Switzerland.
And while NBA all-stars Cedric Ceballos and Shawn Marion had just missed out on winning leg two, they ended up in last in week three. Luckily, it turned out to be a non-elimination leg, leaving the oldest contestants to race another week.
While finishing first in any leg earns a team bragging rights, it is no guarantee of victory at the end of this race around the world. Who do you think will win this 30th edition of “The Amazing Race.” Vote in our poll below and then be sure to make your predictions as to the outcome of tonight’s two episodes.
