The Amazing Race 27×08, “Krakow, I’m Gonna Get You,” just finished airing! Read our recap to find out which team got eliminated.
The Green team, Justin and Diana, are the first to leave for Poland and get on the earliest flight available before any other team, which gives them a major head start. The rest of the teams get on a second flight, much to their dismay.
First the teams must go to Krakow Plaza and retrieve their first clue from the bottom of the pool. Justin and Diana have time to change their clothes, but the rest of the teams jump in with the clothes they’re racing in.
In “Music,” the teams must earn 100 zloty (the Polish currency) by performing a piece of music on a piano in Krakow’s Old Town Square. In “Mine,” the teams must go to the Wieliczka Salt Mines to deliver timber then load a cart with salt.
The Green Team heads to the mines for the Detour, still way ahead of the rest of the teams. Without the pressure of the other teams right behind them the pair makes it through the tough mining without arguing.
The rest of the teams split up between Music and Mining. Logan and Chris, and Tanner and Josh decide to go mining. While Joey and Kelsey, Denise and James Earl, and Tiffany and Krista go for the music.
Over at music James Earl has the advantage that he actually knows how to play piano, while Joey and Kelsey know how to work the crowd with their personalities. Tiffany and Krista struggle the most to get donations from the crowd and are the last to leave.
Logan and Chris have a hard time with the physical aspect of lifting the salt in the mine, but are still ahead of Josh and Tanner who had a hard time actually getting there.
At the Road Block the teams must identify then deliver a platter of Polish food to a party down the street. Luckily for the Green Team, Justin already knew some of the dishes and still had a huge lead from the rest of the teams.
James Earl and Kelsey get to Road Block next and decide to work together. It pays off because they both finish quickly and head off to the Pit Stop. Logan and Chris argue about who should do the Road Block and Chris ends up winning. He gets it wrong the first time but does some research for his next try to get it done.
Tiffany and Josh decide to work together even though they’re both in the back of the pack. After asking some locals for help, they find out what the dishes are and finish together.
No surprise, Justin and Diana come in first place and win a trip to China. They also learn that there’s a U-Turn in the next leg of the race.
Second place: Joey and Kelsey
Third place: Denise and James Earl
Fourth place: Logan and Chris
Fifth place: Tiffany and Krista
Tanner and Josh come in last place but are relieved to learn that it’s a non-elimination leg and are still in the race.
