The Amazing Race turned into Austrian Idol for a bit on Sunday, when teams had to sing Franz Schubert's "Die Forelle" with the Vienna Boys Choir. Unfortunately for Oklahoma BFFs Tim and Danny, the former's tone-deafness did them in. "I can't sing, I can't speak German, I definitely can't sing German," he tells TVGuide.com. "That's pretty tough." How long did they spend at the musical Roadblock? Find out below. Plus: See what they say they should've done last week with the Double U-Turn.
For the second straight Amazing Race elimination, a team went from first to worst. BFFs and beard aficionados Brandon and Adam got the boot after getting U-Turned by the Afghanimals Leo and Jamal, who were U-Turned themselves, and struggled at the Neptune statue-posing Detour, not once, but twice. "After we won last week, everybody was excited and psyched. All week I knew it was coming, like, 'Yeah, I'm going to lose!'" Brandon tells TVGuide.com. "But once it actually happened, I was able to talk to the people watching with me and it wasn't so bad. It happened a while ago, so we've gotten over it." But do they think they would have avoided getting U-Turned had they not left the statue Detour in the first place? Find out below.
Phil Keoghan promises that he isn't overselling when he describes Season 23 of The Amazing Race as the most competitive yet. "I know people probably think I say this every season, but it's true," he tells TVGuide.com. "This group is just out-of-their-minds competitive. They might be hard to top. It's so much fun, especially when we get back and we know we have good material in the can."

The second Express Pass must be given to another team by the end of the fifth leg.
