I'm Filthy And I Love It is the second episode of The Amazing Race 9.

Synopsis

The teams learn quickly about the toll this Race has on the mind and body. One Racer breaks into tears after facing an extreme fear of heights while repelling down a 400-foot building.

While navigating through the picturesque land of Brazil, frustration gets the better of one racer who is lost and has trouble operating a manual transmission. During an intense challenge, some teams are neck and neck as they scale a waterfall while others are left watching as other teams pass them by.[2]
