The Amazing Race Spoilers – Strategy To Win

Claire and Derek decided to take one backpack instead of two and only pack super essential items. Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf from Big Brother 19 did the same thing when they appeared on The Amazing Race 30 and were the first to arrive at the finish line and win the race. Other racers before them have also used this strategy, hopefully, it gives Claire and Derek an edge.

To get ready for the race Claire and Derek watched seasons 5, 7, 21, 23, 24, 26 to 33. Their favorite was season 5. When watching the episodes they took notes on everyone. They also read past racers’ blogs, listened to podcasts, and threads they could to gain intel.

Claire and Derek will be racing along with the other teams to Austria – Bologna, Italy – Florence, Italy – Aqaba, Jordan– Petra, Jordan – Amman, Jordan – Toulouse, France – Malaga, Spain– Ronda, Spain and Reykjavik, Iceland. Fans of the couple hope they will be the first to arrive at the finish line in Nashville Tennessee.
