We are heading to Vietnam on The Amazing Race 2017 tonight, so get ready for busy streets and unnecessary drama. It’s crazy to think that only five teams on The Amazing Race Season 29 remain, so that winner of Amazing Race 2017 will be crowned soon enough! Check it out with us during our The Amazing Race 2017 Live Recap and see who went home on The Amazing Race 2017 tonight!
Last week on The Amazing Race Season 29, the teams packed their things and headed off to Greece! There was a shocker in the mix, as another Double U-Turn was ahead. This one gave us a race, as it was Liz & Michael and Becca & Floyd that were both u-turned. They struggled driving themselves around Greece, so they were both way out of it. However, they both stayed pretty consistent with each other. Liz & Michael had a Speed Bump to do from not being eliminated the week before. That was pretty much their downfall on this leg, as Becca & Floyd got to Phil Keoghan first and it was Liz & Michael eliminated!

Tara & Joey kick things off and will head to a canal. They have done well this season and don’t want to be shady, like Scott & Brooke last week u-turning Liz & Mike, who were in last anyway. They get to the canal and it is a Road Block, as they have to bungee jump from a bridge!
Joey does it and survives and they will now head to Vietnam. Matt & Redmond are behind them and Matt jumps very easily. Scott & Brooke are next and he has to do the Road Block. He is terrified of heights and his #1 fear is bungee jumping, so let the drama and screaming begin! He is tied up, but said he can’t do it! After a drama queen moment, he jumps and says he will never do that again in his life.
We now see Logan and Becca both do the jump and they were a little more calm and excited about it. They all head to the airport now and everyone is taking the same flight to Vietnam, so evening things up tonight on The Amazing Race 2017!
They land in Vietnam and it is hot and humid. Both Tara & Joey are not feeling well, having four hours of sleep between them. They are taking taxis, as the streets are so crowded. Floyd & Becca get to a park and must search for the clue, as locals workout in the park. Floyd notices one lady has a yellow stick, so he gets the clue from them. They will now head out to a temple for the next clue.
All the teams get the clue and head out to the temple. Becca & Floyd get there first and it is a Detour: Bamboo Climb, where they will carry marked ladders through the city and then retrieve a birdcage and then deliver the birdcage and ladder back to where they came from, or Window Design, where they will pick up three mannequins and deliver them to a window and then dress the mannequins like a photo for the display window.
Matt & Redmond, Scott & Brooke and London & Logan are all doing Bamboo Climb. Becca & Floyd already got a ladder. They all seem to get there at the same time. Matt & Redmond find a ladder, as Scott notices it. Then London and Brooke seem to notice a ladder hung up, so London starts climbing and Brooke tries to race her up the ladder to get it. London & Logan are not impressed! It seems like there are no more marked ladders, so Scott & Brooke might need to switch Detours on The Amazing Race 2017.
Running through the streets with that ladder is intense! Scott & Brooke just continue to argue, as Tara & Joey pass them and ask what’s up. Becca & Floyd find the location and start climbing the steps with that ladder in hand! They seem to get stuck. Tara & Joey get to the ladders and find no marked ladders, so ticked that Scott & Brooke said nothing to them. Scott & Brooke get the mannequins and start carrying them. Tara & Joey get the mannequins but only grab two of the three needed and don’t realize it!
Becca & Floyd get to the top and grab the birdcage and head down. Matt & Redmond arrive and head up, so they work together in the middle to get around each other, as they pretty much need to. Matt grabs the birdcage and they head out, as now London & Logan are attempting to bring the ladder up. Scott & Brooke keep dropping their mannequins. They continue to fight, as Brooke is upset that Scott wouldn’t hold the ladder for her earlier. She does not move on, does she?
We see Becca & Floyd and Matt & Redmond both deliver their ladder and birdcage at the same time. They get the clue, which has them heading to the next Pit Stop! They are both in taxis and the race is on. Tara & Joey get to their window and Tara notices they are missing a guy, but Joey said they didn’t need one. They start dressing the two mannequins they have.
Scott & Brooke get to their window, so Tara & Joey try to hurry. However, they are still missing a third mannequin! They get it checked and it is not correct. They look it over and read the clue again, as they need one man, one woman and one child! So, now they have to go back and get the male mannequin. London & Logan get their birdcage and ladder delivered.
Scott & Brooke get their window approved, as Tara & Joey are headed back. Pretty much they need a non-elimination leg or Tara & Joey are eliminated on The Amazing Race 2017 tonight! Scott & Brooke are freaking out about their taxi ride taking too long. Tara & Joey got their window approved. Scott & Brooke’s taxi driver seems to have no clue where to take them!
The teams all checked in with Phil Keoghan and the order is:
- First Place – Becca & Floyd and for winning this leg, they win a trip to the Galapagos Islands! And they went to worst to first!
- Second Place – Matt & Redmond
- Third Place – Logan & London
- Fourth Place – Scott & Brooke
- Last Place – Tara & Joey, as Joey passes out as they get to the mat! This is a non-elimination leg of the race though, so no one goes home! Tara & Joey will face a Speed Bump in the next episode and I am so glad!
We move into Hour 2 of The Amazing Race 2017 tonight. It looks like Scott & Brooke and Logan & London mended their fences after the drama on the last leg and their alliance is still going strong.
Now we see Becca & Floyd kick things off and they will be taking a bus to Ninh Binh for the next clue! It looks like Becca & Floyd and Matt & Redmond get on Bus #1. The other teams all get on Bus #2, even though Brooke tried to pay the driver to leave early and keep Tara & Joey behind. Karma, people!
Becca & Floyd and Matt & Redmond get to the next clue and will now ride bikes to their next clue! They pick up their Travelocity gnomes and then head to the next clue, which is a Road Block. They have to ride bikes and deliver big batches of shrimp traps, which looks insane! Floyd and Matt decide to work together to stay ahead of the others. Meanwhile, their bus was stuck in traffic and now has arrived and they are all riding bikes now.
Matt and Floyd head out and Floyd keeps dropping traps along the way and Becca sees, but can’t say anything! That is going to hurt them on The Amazing Race 2017.
Tara & Joey get to the next clue, but they have their Speed Bump first. They have to collect six dozen duck eggs from local farmers. London & Logan got the gnome and head out. Matt gets the traps approved and now he has to unload them. Floyd is struggling and Matt helps him get the bike back up, but he notices all the dropped bags! Scott & Brooke get the gnome and head out.
Matt gets back with the bike and they get the next clue, so they are heading out. Tara & Joey are gathering the duck eggs. London starts on the traps, as Floyd gets them checked and he does not have enough. He thought he could unload them and then go back and get what he dropped, but that is not the case! He has to keep them all on the bike and deliver at one time! He is screwed right now.
Matt & Redmond get to the next clue and will now get in a boat and row it using their feet! They have to grab some goods to deliver on the boat. Matt will be rowing and this looks so hard!
Scott will be working on the Road Block. Floyd is back with all the traps and Becca wishes she would have done this one. Matt & Redmond get the goods delivered and now head back, as Matt is trying to get a rhythm. Scott gets approval on the traps. Matt & Redmond get the clue and they are now heading to Hang Mua Peak for the Pit Stop.
Floyd and London both head out with their traps and London is struggling and screaming for Floyd to help her! They get a local to help, as they are moving slow. Tara & Joey arrive, as Joey is working on this one. Floyd and London are going along and someone dropped some bags! We see Matt & Redmond having to climb a ton of steps for the Pit Stop.
Scott starts rowing for them. London and Floyd get to the check-in and Floyd is missing bags and has to go back again, as he is feeling defeated now! London gets approval and now Joey arrives and he gets approval! Floyd is exhausted and laying down, but he needs to suck it up and try!
Floyd goes back and grabs the bags and heads back and finally gets approval, as Becca said the Fun Meter is way low right now. He comes back and they head out, but Floyd is totally out of it and exhausted and falls off his bike. That heat is killing them all, but to do that twice is insane!
Now we have Scott & Brooke getting the rowing done and they head out. Tara and Logan are both struggling, as we see Floyd fall down again on the bike and he is not in good shape! The medics come in and try to cool him down. Becca is being very encouraging on this, which is great to see.
Logan is getting pissed, as he is too tall for the rowing and struggling. Scott & Brooke get to the Pit Stop and Brooke sees all the steps and thinks it is wrong. Tara & Joey get done with the rowing and they head out. Now we see Logan & London get done with rowing also.
Floyd is overheating and they are trying to get his temperature down. The other teams check in and Floyd is too dizzy and can’t move on. I loved Team Fun and loved how they are still being so positive on this one.
For the second hour on The Amazing Race 2017, the order for the teams checking in with Phil Keoghan is:
- First Place – Matt & Redmond and for winning this leg, they win a trip to Costa Rica!
- Second Place – Scott & Brooke
- Third Place – Tara & Joey
- Fourth Place – London & Logan
- Last Place – Floyd & Becca, as Phil comes to meet them and tell them they are eliminated. They still are smiling and disappointed, but being good about it. I love their attitude and wish they could take the spot of Brooke & Scott!
