The Amazing Race Season 27 - Episode 6 Recap
My Tongue Doesn't Even Twist That Way

Diana wants to do the seafood challenge, but Justin says they should go with rap. She’s still a little petulant even as she admits that Mic is totally in his wheelhouse. She snipes at him a little bit more, but he doesn’t seem too phased.
None of the other teams seem to realize that the Fantome Blanc they need to find in the square is a man, as they all run right past him. In the meantime, Justin & Diana have reached the rappers and argue the whole way through the learning of the tune. Diana doesn’t feel like she can get the French lyrics right, but she also thinks it’s a bad move to leave. Basically, she just wants to be mad at Justin. They’re in first place, but she’s having a bad day. Up to now, she’s been the level-headed person who keeps her team on an even keel.
Tanner & Josh are the first to find the fantome, and the other teams follow. #TeamTexas and #ChacAttack choose the seafood challenge, while the others choose rap. Logan & Chris are only just now boarding their train to take them to the square.
With their first attempt at their rap, Diana seems like she’s starting to have a little fun at least, but she does mess up. Then again, when Posse/Possum criticizes her rhythm, she backslides into pout mode. They miss again on their second try, but it’s super close (and probably overly picky). “I’m a white girl – I don’t have vibes!” Diana tells Posse/Possum. The third try gets it done, and Posse/Possum hands them a postcard with their clue.
Tanner & Josh are learning how to shuck oysters, while Kelsey & Joey and Tiffany & Krista get started with their rap. Denise & James Earl… seem to be lost.
#ChacAttack have also arrived at the restaurant to start the seafood challenge, and Rick says, “I’ve never done this before, but you know, controlling a knife isn’t too different whether it’s oysters or people. I’ve gotta be more accurate with people.” We’re sure all his patients are feeling really comfortable after hearing that remark.
Justin & Diana pick up their clue as we gaze on the Eiffel Tower (la Tour Eiffel, if you prefer) in the distance. It tells them to search for Phil “across from the monument where the first team will ‘triumph.’” Obviously, Phil’s going to be standing near the Arc de Triomphe. This episode is where having a minor in French really pays off!
We’re back at the rap challenge, where Kelsey is destroying the French language so much it makes our ears hurt. Then, Krista and Tiffany step up to the stage and reveal that it does in fact seem to be Posse that we’re dealing with. They are shockingly amazing at this and get it on their first try. #TheReporters are demoralized, as well they should be, because they’re allowing the worst team in the race to beat them.
