The Amazing Race Season 21, Episode 8 - "We Was Robbed" - Moscow, Russia

Rockers James & Abba could not recover after having their passports stolen in the last leg and were eliminated.

This week's placements

1. James & Jaymes (Chippendale Dancers)
2. Trey & Lexi (Texans)
3. Natalie & Nadiya (Twins)
4. Abbie & Ryan (Dating Divorcees)
5. Josh & Brent (Goat Farmers/Beekman Boys)
6. James & Abba (Rockers)

Next week: Amsterdam

Nice to see Jaymes/James get their shit together and finally pull off a first place finish. They're the shining light of this awful season and I hope they win.

Interesting to see that they didn't display the departure times like they usually do... I'm curious how far behind Abbie/Ryan, Josh/Brent, and James/Abba were.

Also, someone pointed out on another forum, they're very clearly showing each arrival at the pitstop saying hello/goodbye in their native language. Potentially part of the final challenge?

I know! Doesn't it take a while to get a passport anyways? I wonder if the show put them up in a hotel until they were able to leave.

i think they sequester the teams once they are kicked off anyway (that way they can control that they show up for the finale, and they dont spoil anything to press~). so i def think they prob had them in a hotel.... so i imagine worst case scenario, instead of gettin them to a hotel in the country where the finale was gonna take place, they had them stay in russian until they could figure out their visa issues
