This week's Race takes us to Berlin to learn that 1) historical quotes are hard, yo, and 2) hipsters in Berlin win at hipstering.
It’s the Final Five teams, because we lost Chuck and Wynona in Switzerland after some improperly transported cheese....

Oh, Race, it’s good to be back. I’ve missed you. And I’ve missed Phil’s hat and Phil’s Maori fishhook necklace, too!
It’s been two weeks, do you remember what happened? Africa? Speeding tickets? Fearless Friends got...

I'm filling in for your regular recapper, Janell. I'm usually on b's dance show beat, covering "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance." This show is pairs of people doing things that are uncomfortable, so how different can it be?

What do you get with some marital conflict, product placement, joking around and weepy, back-slapping man hugs? "The Amazing Race"in Italy, obviously.
I finally get to use the word hamartia in a recap to show off my knowledge of old...

This week, "The Amazing" Race brings us whimsy. Are you ready for whimsy? Then you are ready for Bavaria. Plus, later on, Phil gets meta. I think. Let’s go!
All teams get the heck out of Italy and travel to Austria via trains. Bopper and Mark...

This week,"The Amazing Race"brings us hay, oil, apples, cheese and crackers. Plus a little bit of heartbreak. I’m fortified with lots of homemade peppermint cookies, though, so I can get through this.
Remember Bavaria? Land of Beards and...

What did you do last week when "The Amazing Race" wasn't on? Did you think of Big Brother Rachel’s green sequins? Or of Army Dave’s biceps? Or the cute way that Kentucky Mark pukes when he’s in the back seat of a car? Oh, it’s so...

It's finale time! Make some party noises, put on some party hats, drink some party beverages, whatever floats your finale boat. I'm gonna dive in because of all the stuff that is happening, but I will foreshadow that this ending is not as predictable as...

It's the second leg of "The Amazing Race," and we learn some interesting factoids about the teams.
For example, one of the blondes snorts when she is almost hit by a taxi. Was it a snort of laughter? Or of fear? It all happened so quickly.

Last week, the teams stayed in Bangladesh and got very hot. The Twins somehow failed to fall for Boyfriend Ryan's nerdy charm, and the Goat Farmers came in last but were spared from elimination by a benevolent Phil and a pretty woman at the Pit Stop.

Previously on "The Amazing Race," Team Superfan almost lost due to their lack of skills with balloon animals. They didn't even run to the Pit Stop, so defeated were they in their hearts.
They are my son's favorite team, and he would have cried if they...

The biggest winner Sunday at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards had to be Showtime’s “Homeland,” which took the top three drama awards in an upset over such favorites as “Mad Men” and Downton Abbey.” But Baltimore-based...
