Episode #401 – The Amazing Race 3 Episode 6 Recap

Follow Gerard’s sense of direction, because Logan has successfully twisted my arm and convinced me we should dive back into the vaults to cover a classic Amazing Race season! Over these thirteen episodes, three people who would never pay €30 for an entrance fee – Logan, Michelle & I – are covering every minute detail of a season which Logan knows like the back of his hand – Amazing Race Season 3, continuing with the sixth episode and elimination of Aaron & Arianne.

In this episode:

  • Is this another leg that people immediately think of for this season?

  • Why is Phil obsessed with Teri & Ian being ancient?
  • How well-travelled were they in Morocco?
  • Are Ken & Gerard the team to beat halfway through the season?
