'The Amazing Race' 16 Recap: Everybody's Lost in Champagne Country

Let's begin this recap of The Amazing Race with a disclaimer: despite the fact that all the tasks this week involve champagne, nobody got drunk. Everything that happened here was because of human error, not because they were intoxicated or anything. I mean, really, I think nobody was allowed to drink the stuff!

Tonight, we're headed to the French region of Champagne-Ardenne, which--as the name obviously suggests--is where champagne is made. And, as I mentioned a few days ago, if it's not from that region, it's just sparkling wine.

Anywhere warm, puh-leeease: The first thing the racers have to battle, though, are the temperatures. "France feels like December in New England," the frontrunners, Louie and Michael declared, complete with visions of them in boxers. They're first headed to Reims, where they'll have to spot the statue of Joan of Arc--just outside the Cathedral of Reims, or in the words of Dan and Jordan, the "Cathy Drone" of Reims--where they'll grab a clue from a musician playing a musical saw. It's quite easy to figure out, despite the cryptic clue that goes "listen to what you saw."
