I'm Not His Wife, He Doesn't Need to Scream At Me is the second episode of The Amazing Race 6.


Ten teams travel by plane and train to Norway.

The pressure of the race increases, causing a fight over a pair of sunglasses that brings a racer to tears and results in a deep discussion about the couple's relationship. Meanwhile, a detour task proves to be incredibly exhausting and painful as one racer finds it nearly impossible to remain standing; struggles with navigation causes serious infighting and at the pit stop, a team gets an unexpected penalty which may affect their outcome.[2]

Teams must fly to Oslo, Norway. Upon arriving teams will have to find the Holmenkollen ski jump to search for their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to climb to the top of the ski jump, then ride a zipline 1,000 feet (300 m) to the bottom in order to receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Brandbu and find the Viking Village. Once there, teams will find their next clue.

In the morning, the ten teams would split into two groups of five teams, and row across a fjord to their next clue.

Adam & Rebecca, Hayden & Aaron, Kris & Jon, Lena & Kristy, Lori & Bolo formed Team 1. Don & Mary Jean, Freddy & Kendra, Gus & Hera, Jonathan & Victoria, and Meredith & Maria formed Team 2.

Teams must take a train to the town of Voss and drive to a marked bridge to find their next clue.

Choice A: Endurance
Teams must roller ski downhill on a 1.75-mile course to receive their next clue.

Adam & Rebecca, Hayden & Aaron, Lena & Kristy, and Lori & Bolo chose this task.

Choice B: Accuracy
Teams have to successfully complete three games traditionally played by the Vikings. First, they had to throw sticks to knock over a circle of eight logs called kubbs before knocking over the king in the center. After knocking over the king, one team member had to throw an axe into a tree trunk target and make it stick. Once the axe stuck, the other team member had to shoot an arrow into a target 30 feet away to get their next clue.

Don & Mary Jean, Freddy & Kendra, Gus & Hera, Jonathan & Victoria, Kris & Jon, and Meredith & Maria chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Nesheimstunet Farm to check in.

For coming in first, Kris & Jon won a seven-night cruise in Alaska, courtesy of Royal Caribbean International.
