A favorite team falls from first place to last after getting U-Turned in Gdansk, and Tim and Marie finally hand over the Express Pass. The Amazing Race's Tim and Marie talk about why they were "Dating Couple" Jason Case and Amy Diaz team was the first team to cross the. they yelled, carefree, as they jogged away from Tim and Marie in the fish-hanging challenge. I loved it when it happened. But as we found out.

At the Golden Gate, teams encountered a Detour: Pose dress up as and pose like a stature of Neptune until the collect 75 zloty from passersby or Polka learn and perform a choreographed polka routine -- in costume, of course. Most teams chose to dance, much to the displeasure of Team Oklahoma's Danny, who complained about having to wear the woman's costume.
And, because "The Amazing Race" loves costumes, teams had to keep their new outfits on for the rest of the leg.

Baseball wives Nicky and Kim breezed through the posing challenge, gamely chatting with people and begging them to donate. Brandon and Adam just stood there for a bit and didn't really engage with the crowd, therefore not collecting very much money before deciding to switch tasks.
Tim and Marie decided not to polka or pose and cashed in their Express Pass, instantly putting them in first place. Surprisingly, the exes decided not to U-Turn anyone when given the opportunity.
They, in turn, U-Turn Brandon and Adam, forcing them both to head back to the square and pose for money which, if Brandon and Adam had stuck with in the first place, they probably wouldn't have lost this week. The Afghanimals ham it up and make quick work of the Neptune challenge, while Brandon and Adam again have trouble warming up the crowd.
They know it doesn't look good for them. Next, teams had to do a Roadblock at the longest apartment complex in Poland, visiting various apartments in the mile-and-a-half-long building in search of one serving rose paczki, a filled jelly doughnut-type pastry.
For giving them a hint. We had a little romance. Did you have any intention to keep the romance going after the Race or was it just a showmance type of thing? It's still going a little bit!
They're still in touch for right now. Yeah, it's still going. We see each other every once in awhile. It's weird because I'm from New York and she's from Los Angeles and the show was going on, so like I said, I didn't want it to distract me from the show either.
But we still see each other from time to time. It was good to spend this past weekend altogether. I got to spend some time with her. Do you think the show edited Leo and Jamal's Race pretty accurately or do you think they got a fairly good edit considering some of the controversial moves they pulled this season? We think that Leo and Jamal are great Racers. We totally have respect for the way that they race. We think they were one of the strongest teams there.

We were shocked and we were upset that they weren't in the Final 3 with us, and I think from the beginning, they kind of got a bad edit as far as looking like they were liars and everything. And we can understand that because we think we kind of got a bad edit from the beginning. But there was nothing that they did that was truly unacceptable or anything like that.
They're good guys and they just had a really strategic way of racing, and you know, they got under people's skin a little bit, but I think that's what they intended to do. Off the Race, they're great guys and on the Race, they were super competitive, and I don't think it was anything more than that. I don't think there's anything wrong with the way that they raced. You just mentioned you guys don't think you got a great edit in the beginning either.
I'm sure you know, Marie, some Racers have called you just plain "mean" and one of them even referred to you as "the devil" once. I just want to get your reaction to those comments and do you think people thought you were far worse than you really were or do you think you maybe took things a little too far sometimes? I think people just kind of have a little bit of a problem with complete and utter honesty. I mean, I was straight-forward.
Amazing Race's Tim and Marie: The Final Leg Layout Was "Frustrating" | TV Guide
A lot of things I said or did, I just outright did, and I make no apology for it. I don't filter anything. A lot of the other teams behaved the same way and said some of the same things and did some of the same things, but it was all behind each other's backs -- smile to people's faces and then screw them when they're not looking.
I didn't go on the Race to have people like me and I wasn't shocked at the edit that I got. I just think a lot of people at home don't really take the edit with a grain of salt.
It is a reality TV show and everybody's kind of there because they all fit these different roles. Was there anything nice that I did that was edited out? Of course, you know. They didn't show us getting along. They didn't show me helping the other teams. They didn't show any of that, and that did happen, but I'm not mad about it.

I knew what I signed up for and it's just the way that I raced. So was it accurate when, Marie, you seemed to make most of the decisions and basically would just compliment Tim if something worked out after he listened to you, laughs or did you have a little bit of a different dynamic than what was often shown? There was a little more team work involved than they showed.
I think they kind of ran with the whole "bossing Tim around" thing. But that is the nature of our relationship and that's why we get along. I'm a control freak and he gets me and figures out a way to make that work for both of us.
Had he not been like that, we probably would have self-destructed in the second leg of the Race. We just both have that outward personality, and in order for that to work as a team, you know, somebody has to be in control. So he kind of just let me be in control, and when he thought I was wrong, he'd voice his opinion and say, "We're not doing this. We're doing it this way! You two had obviously dated before the show and you mentioned something like you just fought and couldn't get along so you broke up.
Would you mind elaborating on your relationship a little bit? If your relationship volatile, I know viewers are surprised you've been able to uphold such a strong friendship because you know how that tends to go after breakups. So do you ever get the urge to get back together or is that just not an option?
