Since there are no non-elimination stretches in The amazing race 34, the producers had to include a pair of Megalegs to lengthen the episodes. So the final five met another Megaleg when they arrived in Malaga, Spain. Each team had its ups and downs, but some are in better places than others going into the second half of the leg in The amazing race 34 Episode 10.
[Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers from The Amazing Race 34 Episode 9, “Vamos a la Playa.”]
A summary of episode 9 of ‘The Amazing Race 34’
Bottom five teams: Emily Bushnell and Molly Sinert, Derek Xiao and Claire RehfussAubrey Ares and David Hernández, Luis Colón and Michelle Burgos, and Marcus and Michael Craig—arrived in Spain in The amazing race 34 Episode 9. Derek, Claire, Luis and Michelle were the first to leave and rushed to Plaza de la Merced, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, for their first roadblock.
At the barricade, they had to correctly assemble one of Picasso’s works of art using glass panels. Claire and Michelle volunteered to complete the challenge.
Emily, Molly, Aubrey, David, Marcus and Michael left the starting point 15 minutes later. When they got to Roadblock, Aubrey, Marcus and Emily decided to do it. Claire was the first to finish the task and receive her next clue. Aubrey followed her, and after some frustration, Michelle completed the barricade. Despite her knee injury, Emily finished before Marcus, who didn’t realize that her rear panel was upside down.
The teams then had to bike to the Detour on the beach, something Derek dreaded to death. They then had the option of frying fish or delivering ice and life jackets to a boat via paddle board.
All the teams besides Luis and Michelle decided to do the Fish Diversion. Derek and Claire were the first to finish, but not before helping Aubrey and David by informing them that they needed to salt the fish. Aubrey and David then left, while Emily and Molly were turned down for their first check. Luis and Michelle paddled through rough water but made it and were the third team to finish the Detour.
So, the only two teams left in the Detour before The amazing race 34 Episode 10 is Emily and Molly and Marcus and Michael. And at the end of episode 9, the other three teams were shown driving convertibles into the second half of the Megaleg.
‘The Amazing Race 34’ Episode 10 Promo Shows Teams Reaching New Heights
CBS aired the promo for The amazing race 34 Episode 10, and it seems that the pressures of Megaleg will reach the teams.
The Roadblock involves the contestants walking a tightrope in the air. The preview shows Aubrey and Claire completing the challenge, which goes along with Derek and Claire’s roadblock strategy. At one point, Aubrey says, “I’m so scared of heights… I don’t think he can do it again.” And Claire is shaking during homework, repeatedly saying, “I hate this.”
At the end of the promo, Claire sobs into her hands and yells, “I’m so scared.” So Roadblock could bring out the best in Claire and Aubrey.
Regarding the Deviation by The amazing race 34 Episode 10, one challenge involves teams accessorizing a woman, and the other has couples using clay to build a brick structure.
Which team will be the victim of the Megaleg?
based on The amazing race 34 episode 9Emily, Molly, Marcus, and Michael are in danger of leaving during episode 10.
Of course, we saw Aubrey and Claire fighting in the trailer, but we think that’s a red herring. David and Derek will support them and finish the barricade. And Luis and Michelle are almost guaranteed to be safe. They are a strong team who can speak fluent Spanish. But it’s a different story for the other two pairs.
Marcus and Michael have experienced numerous problems in recent episodes and their time on the run may be over. But Emily’s injury could spell doom for her and Molly. We can’t imagine Emily could complete the roadblock and they would lose to anyone in a foot race.
The amazing race 34 Episode 10, “Don’t Look Down,” airs Wednesday, November 23 at 9 pm ET on CBS.
