Tell My Mom I Love Her is the ninth episode of The Amazing Race 6.


As teams make their way to Corsica, many struggle to work together, putting them at a disadvantage in the race and making them question their relationships.

Teams face a Roadblock task where they must stomp 55 pounds of grapes into juice, filling five wine bottles. Also, one team member struggles to complete the Fast Forward, putting their lead in jeopardy; and the pressure of the race takes its toll on another team whose relationship falters when they get lost driving to the next clue.[2]


Route Markers

The order of departure from Fisherman's Bastion are as follows:

  1. Lori & Bolo (11:12 pm)
  2. Kris & Jon (12:01 am)
  3. Jonathan & Victoria (12:02 am)
  4. Hayden & Aaron (12:06 am)
  5. Adam & Rebecca (12:07 am)
  6. Freddy & Kendra (12:19 am)

Teams must make their way to the Promontor Borudvar winery, and follow the marked path towards the 14,000 gallon wine cask to search for their next clue.

Teams must fly to Ajaccio, Corsica, France. Upon arrival, teams must find the birthplace of Napoleon Boneparte to receive their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves Calvi and find Camp Raffalli, where they will find their next clue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to them after finding their clue at the birthplace of Napoleon Boneparte.

Teams must locate a harbor in Ajaccio and don old-style diving suits weighing more than 100 pounds each. Both team members had to walk across the ocean floor to a lobster trap and retrieve their clue to claim the Fast Forward. Adam & Rebecca won the Fast Forward.

Choice A: Climb Up
Teams have to use a mechanical ascender to climb a 45-foot rock wall. Once at the top, they had to find the terrace, where a French legionnaire would give them a medal. After receiving the medal, the teams had to rappel 75 feet down to receive their next clue.

Freddy & Kendra, Hayden & Aaron, Kris & Jon, and Lori & Bolo chose this task.

Choice B: Fly Behind
Teams must choose a Zodiac boat. One teammate had to ride behind on an inflatable raft while the other rode inside the Zodiac and directed the driver to search among 25 buoys for one with a clue attached. However, out of these buoys, only 12 contained a clue while the rest said "try again".

Only Jonathan & Victoria chose this task.

Teams must drive to the village of Zilia and find the winery to search for their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to stomp 55 pounds of grapes with their feet. After squeezing out enough juice to fill five wine bottles, the team member had to drink a glass of their juice to receive the next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to L'Île-Rousse and make their way to La Pietra to check in.

For coming in first, Adam & Rebecca won a vacation to the sunny Caribbean, courtesy of American Airlines.

For coming in last, Hayden & Aaron would have to surrender all of their money, and they would not receive any money at the start of the next leg.
