'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 6 Recap (VIDEO)

Posing for the locals on 'The Amazing Race'

Usually a drag race involves cars, motor oil and testosterone. But you can never predict what it might mean on 'The Amazing Race' -- this week's "drag race" was a little less automobile, a little more Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. Still, brawn may be more helpful than brains at times.

The teams never know what's ahead of them on the race. As viewers, we just tag along vicariously on the ride. However, one thing we can predict for certain: bickerers most often remain bickerers, making the other teams even more likable.

Kat and Nat's big lead dwindled to nothing as the teams first caught up on a train, then all took the same flight to St. Petersburg, Russia. There are pros and cons about constantly starting out on a level playing field. Most of the cons would be for the leading teams, of course, but it prevents the scenario that played out during the first season with one team being separated from the pack by days, not hours.

For the most part this season, the teams seem quite friendly to each other. Oh, there are a few exceptions ... or, at least one exception: The most amiable teams definitely aren't weak. Kat/Nat, Brook/Claire, Michael/Kevin and Gary/Mallory each have fantastic teamwork going on. Plus they don't seem malicious to the other teams. Jill and Thomas don't mix much with the other teams and tend to be lone wolves. Nick and Vicki are still quite clueless, but seem to have really matured in their relationship within the short span of the race so far.
