Amazing Race 21 eliminated Abbie Ginsberg & Ryan Danz tonight in episode 9. The show started off with the teams ,learning they had to catch a flight out to Amsterdam. Once there, they would have to head to a train station to get their first clue for this leg of the race.

Damn Abbie & Ryan ,ran into issues from the jump with their damn flight getting delayed due to the plane having mechanical problems. Meanwhile, the luckiest team on this season ,Natalie & Nadiya, got to Amsterdam quick enough to take advantage of the holy “Fast Forward” challenge,which offered up a prize of skipping all the challenges and heading straight for the pit stop.

In the Fast Forward challenge, they had to gulp down five slabs of Herring fish ,each, in a certain amount of time. They were able to do it,so they went ahead and finished the race. Meanwhile the rest of the teams had to hit up their detours. They got to choose to do either the “Back In Time,” or the “Organ And Grind” detour.

In the “Back In Time” detour, they had to recreate a live staging of the characters in a historical painting to get their next clue. In the “Organ And Grind” detour, they had to operate an organ and collect $30.00 in tips to get their next clue.

After they successfully completed their detours, the teams hit up a museum to get their next clue. However, the museum served up a dreaded double u-turn option. James & Jaymes went ahead and u–turned Ryan & Abbie,so they would have to do both detours,which really sucked.

If that wasn’t bad enough, Trey & Lexi came along and used the 2nd u-turn on James & Jaymes,so Abbie & Ryan wouldn’t be able to use it on anyone,likely ensuring their elimination. Their excuse was that Abbie & Ryan were a strong team,so they had to get rid of them.

Next, the other teams hit up a Road Block,which required them to do some ditch vaulting to get their next clue. From there, they headed to the pit stop for this leg of the race. Natalie & Nadiya arrived in first place due to the Fast Forward challenge,and won $5,000 each.

Jaymes & James showed up in 2nd place, Trey & Lexi came in 3rd place,Josh & Brent arrived in 4th place,and Abbie & Ryan showed up last due to getting royally screwed over. I totally felt bad for Abbie & Ryan as they were probably the best team there,and I would’ve liked to have seen them win this thing. Oh well. That’s it. Stay tuned.
