I'm Gonna Take His Girl is the 6th episode of The Amazing Race 2.


A long train ride with the locals in Thailand takes its toll on the teams.

Teams must endure a 15-hour, third class train ride from Bangkok to Northern Thailand then drive into the mountains where they encounter elephants and engage in an intense river-rafting race that causes two teams to come to blows.[2]
