Do not look down! Claire Refuss reluctantly tries to conquer his fear of heights as part of a roadblock in an upcoming episode Amazing Race.
This brief overview, provided exclusively by Us weekly, Big Brother The 26-year-old alum has to walk a tightrope on the Puente Nuevo in Spain, which sits 390 feet above a waterfall. Once the rider reaches the other side, the teams need to correctly identify the Andalusian flag that the guide was holding when they arrived in Ronda.
Claire chose to complete the task over her partner, her boyfriend. Derek Xiaobecause “she has a great memory, and that’s partly why I was glad she did it,” he explains. “But if you’re scared, your brain doesn’t really work. Because of this, her memory may be slightly impaired.
Before the start of the season, the couple communicated exclusively with Us about how they “complement each other” and acknowledge both their strengths and weaknesses. “I always joke that Claire and I only had one bag and I was carrying it,” Derek said at the time. “So I always told people, ‘I carried the bag and Claire carried me. I think it was my physical endurance in some of the trials. But Claire has some of the best memories of anyone I know. She pays a lot of attention to detail and there are so many issues where it’s literally just attention to detail.”
As the New Yorker tries to walk the tightrope in the clip, his fellow racer Aubrey Areswho also takes on the task, tries to cheer her up.
“Please don’t talk to me, I’m sorry,” says Claire Aubrey, who says, “Talking really helped me.”
“This is terrible. It’s a mistake,” Claire later tells the cameras. “Immediately I thought, ‘Derek should have done this. I really don’t like heights. This has been my #1 fear since childhood. I think it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever done.”
Although viewers don’t yet know how it will end, she continues to insist, all the while saying, “I hate this, I hate this, I hate this, I hate this, I hate this.”
Amazing Race airs on CBS on Wednesdays at 9:00 pm.
